Thanks... I wouldn't have to cut into the 5.25 bays at all and the 240 would fit vertically in place of the 140mm fan area?

What am I supposed to look at in Speccy?

I've gather these temperatures from HWMonitor (the CPUID one).

CPU idles at 30C and peaks at under 50C.

GPU idles at 40C and peaks around 70C (fermi, btw).

Mobo idles at 30C and peaks around 35-40C, I'm not exactly sure.

HDD operates at 30C.

EDIT: I'd like to add that the scent isn't very strong. I only notice it if I put my nose about 2 inches above the top exhaust, but it still kind of worries me.

I looked inside the case and sniffed around, but I couldn't smell the scent. It seems the scent is being pushed out of the case by my exhaust fans.

One more question: My RAM should be okay at 1.68v right? (I set it to 1.64v in BIOS, but HWMonitor reads it as 1.68v so I'm not sure which to go by so I'll go with the higher voltage just to be safe).

Thanks again.

Like me. I just finished putting together a Sniper for my wife, which is essentially the same design as the HAF and my preliminary temps are higher with this case than the Scout. Some of it might have to do with the Radeon 4870 in the Sniper, but I am running two 5750s in the Scout. I suggest trying it first before ditching it. The HAF is a slick case, but so is the Scout.

You are the second one this week who has said that the temps in the Scout beat most of the bigger rigs.

Speccy shows accurate temps all over the board. I still believe that the PSU is burning in.. No Worries. Your Temps look Great.

RAM Question. ... 1.68 should be okay but I am not a DDr3 User so I know that my DDr2 1066 is good to 2.2 Volts.. G-Skill is usually a very tough ram to burn up.

My system ran hotter in my Sniper too.

That is the Whole Idea. just move the hard drive rail and plenty of room appears.

Yeah, I just noticed the temperature readings in Speccy and they match what I'm seeing in HWMonitor.

I'll take word on it and will try not to worry too much xD

Thanks again.
