I've searched google and have come to no solid answer.
Can I have a quick yes or no?

I'm planning on getting a dual cathode set soon and am wondering if the 12 inch set will fit in the scout?

On the top and bottom I mean. I have no experience with them and don't really know if it they're thin enough to squeeze by the hard drive bay.

If not I'll just settle with 8 inch ones.

Not really, you're better off with 2x8 or 4x4".

You can fit the 12in by putting them on the side panel as opposed to inside the case body. It seems a little bit weird, but if you are used to side fan wires then its the same thing. I did it when my microcenter had a bin of ccfl for basically nothing. Nevertheless 8in are a lot easier to deal with.

The 12 inch cathodes will fit on the top without any problems, but will not the bottom. You can either mount them on the side panel like Shiggins said, remove the enclosure of the cathode, or mount the bottom one a bit higher. Here's a picture to show you what I mean.

Thanks for the replies, I guess I'll be ordering the eight inch set soon.

Does anyone know if you can wire the ccfl's into the led switch for the fans?

CFLs need an inverter to go from DC to AC because Neon and all those gasses need to be excited by electricity to glow properly. just running them on a DC current will not excite them IF the power was their to begin with.

i hope that makes since.... it way too early to be at work on a Monday


but your inverter will run on the 12 volt rail (4 pin molex?)

I couldn't remember if it is Scout's or the Sniper's switch for the LED's could only handle so much before burning out.

Good throwing that out there, some people might not know, but I was talking about the on/off switch for the inverter

Oh the only reason I'm asking is I'm building my Mom a PC and thought good time to order me a couple small things. I can't wait, but you guys won't see any pics until I get back from my leave.

You can sand down one of the ends of the 12" ccfl tubes so that it fits in the bottom
