I'm beginning to launch a mod on my CM Storm scout for watercooling later the end of this year. I've been collecting watercooling parts little by little with the money i earn. I so far have an XSPC radiator, a Swiftech Apogee GTZ block, some barbs+clamps, a reservoir, and the CM Storm scout itself!

Here are the plans, i've tried to make it as 'in scale' as possible.



Ok, to explain it to people who are like '***' to my diagram ATM.
The fans on my radiator are exhaust, and yes, they are exhausting downwards. The 'HDD bay' is put onto its side, yes, i have measured the distance and it can definitely fit
(the length between 5.25" bay and bottom of case was 19cm, the false floor will be up to the height of the PSU which is 9cm and that means I'll have 10cm of space to fit the HDD bay which is 9cm wide, 1cm to fit all the extra widths) One end of the bay is already attached with a sheet of metal, and the other is left dangling. A sheet of acrylic screwing the feet parallel will fix the job up quick.

The HDD bay has holes at the sides right? So the air is passing through the HDDs which are mounted vertically and through the RAD. The airflow separator explains itself.

The acrylic floor will have a meshed rectangle in it to allow air to be sucked through it.
I have mounted the pump into the first HDD slot in the bay, and its nozzles will be poking out of the acrylic base of the HDD bay.

I've made a pair of 80mm fan mounters to mount it on PCI area. Yes, it is taking in air from the BACK. The cool air will travel along the side of the Graphics card (which acts like a mini wall to separate the different air flow paths from the top half and bottom half) and eventually be sucked into the radiator.

The top half is simple, air coming from the front fan, blowing over RAM and northbridge and ending up exhausted outside. Here's the airflow diagram:


I'm very excited on this mod, but I have some concerns before I move on to modding.

I bought the XSPC radiator (rx240) second hand and it didn't come with mounting screws. I know, on the manufacturer page it says '6-32 screws'.
But they don't seem to be right, i try screwing a fan onto the radiator and the screw just slips through easily, some holes give a little resistance and then they slip. How will I mount the fans without using zip-ties or glue? Help!

^ if you make a new window you can mount the rad on the window
and not have to mode the whole system(yes i know it is fun)
looks good

Thanks Gen E. (just don't like the golf comment, this thing is made to eat them for breakfast). Its a little pocket rocket.

Its a 2006 Ford Fiesta 2.0, with 59000km on the clock.
Top speed 210km stock(there a vids on you tube with stage 2 converstions that clock out the 240km/h dial at 7000rmp),
0-100km/h in 8.6 stock,

I wish I could get a Focus (Sport Technologies), but I am more than happy with my Fiesta (Sport Technologies). I think you might be thinking of the Focus RS(Rally Sport) which can have a all wheel drive mod done to it and yeah we don't get it here

Yep, except this one standard has no problems leaving behind any car in its subcompact class.

I had a little dice with a VW Scirocco 2.0 tsi yesterday and was the victor. The guy nailed me on the up hill(caught me unawares in the bottom of 2nd), stopped at the lights and it was on, I had a good cars distance on him about 500m and 2 lights bends latter

I already changed the interior light to a red LED to comliment the red inserts in the bucket seats

Just a observation, the fan thats on top the hdd cage might whine a little and will have to work really hard to pull air out the sides like that.

hmm, are they m4(6-32) screws, if they are and they don't work maybe the thread is buggered on the rad. You could try using a small lock nut behind(maybe epoxy it in place) or re tap the hole to a m5 thread maybe.

Only thing that I am not so keen on is the blue over the top stripes, I like the side stripes though. She will get some love and attention as soon as we have recovered from the knock of getting her(she has no name yet, but as her character shows its self the name will fall into place)

Also finished a couple of things on the scout, got photos, just need to find the time to upload them and update my work log. I painted the 5.25" quick drive clips successfully and have them back in the case looking pretty good.
To quote Jeremy Clarkson "I love a fast Ford" NICE! Defect.

the front fan u need to removed the front cover first then just slide it.its kinda hard to put it back though since theres not much space... also make sure to removed ur hard drive first so u have space to work around...
for more info check the first page of this thread..
Believe me mine isnt, i have tried and tried and i just simply havent been able to get it off and i am worried if i try any harder i will f*** the screws up and wont be able get them out at all

by rubber ties, you mean the ones that come with the the Freezer Pro? if so then i still have all that on and everything so it should be okay, as i am going to be getting H50/H70/ECO could i then connect the fan on that to the Zalman - i believe it has 2 fans? (1 at the end and one inside the actual unit?)

You telling me, i have tried and tried and nothing has worked i might have to see if i can get hold of a drill or something as if i keep trying with screw driver i will end up stripping the screws

Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about playing with my fans some, one draw back I can see is hot air blowing over the ram, but they are under clocked from 1.7v to 1.6v OCZ Reapers so I think they should be able to handle it and they should get some cool air from the top fan. What do you guys think?

We've been through this before. A computer is more efficiently cooled by bringing in cool air from the front and exhausting out the rear and top. That is why for it's size the Storm Scout is quite the little cooling friendly case .
