Sorry for the late update status on my cable management. I had to get a new digital camera ><; Well here it is, and yes I need to do some dusting in there.

Before:


After:






In the next few weeks or so I'll be adding my GTX 460, and I hope to have finished the hard drive cover. I'll post them up asap. Take care scouts.

Im sure that someone has put a fan controller in this thing! Id rather not have to buy all new fans....
You can do either of the following :
  • Get a converter cable that will take the male molex on the fan to a 2/3 pin female connector.
  • Find some old fans that have the correct 2/3 pin female connector, cut off the male molex connectors on the fans and solder on the 2/3 pin connectors.
I would like to see that YouTube video, does it not say either of the above methods would work ?

Thats the youtube video. a guy showing off his cable management. He basically said that since the case uses molex connectors, there is no was to control the speed of the fans. not sure if that is true tho...

That's not true at all. All the fans, aftermarket and stock, are DC (direct current) electric motors. By changing the applied voltage they can be speed controlled. The only issue we run into with fan controllers is the connecters. A molex style connector will only have the power and the ground. Three pin connectors have power, ground and rpm sensor wire. While four pin has power, ground, rpm sensor and voltage control so that the newer type mobo headers can control fan speed through the bios. If you want to connect your stock Scout fans to a modern type fan contoller you'll either have to change the connector on the fan by cutting and soldering a new connector, or get some molex to 3 pin adapters to connect to the controller.

If you are looking at the 930 I'm assuming you have seen the microcenter deal on it? Can't beat an i7 for 200.

http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0331303

Just making sure because that can save a bunch of money.

Also, the G.skill RAM always looks nice on Classifieds if you get the red and black ripjaws. I know everyone says go Corsair Dominator, but I love my G.skill as I have never seen a bad stick. Maybe I'm just lucky.

Also, with the 930 and x58 board remember you are looking triple channel RAM not dual. I have the 3x2GB setup and I have yet to see it all used even when I am CADing and rendering so you don't necessarily need the fancy 3x4GB.
