I understand.. I used to have that problem. Now my daughter is a Junior in College I just sit back and don't worry anymore and she takes care of all the cares and paperwork and i wait for her to ask for help. LOL..

Had a minor problem with my GTS250 fitting, due to the length of the Musashi, it wasn't quite going back all the way into place due to this, but I knew it was gonna be hit or miss after researching into the case.:-



Slight cutting with a jnr. hacksaw soon resolved the issue though.:-




You don't wanna see behind the mobo tray, man my PSU sucks and needs replacing, and it's got limited Molex and SATA connectors, so it's a jumble of splitters and I had to get my girlfriend to help me squeeze the side closed... 0_o
I aint opening it 'til I get my new PSU though, lol.




Gonna probably get some Enermax Apollish Vegas 140mm & 120mm to replace the front intake & rear exhaust, 'cos the light's quite dim. I don't usually care about glitz and glamour, but my 120mm Enermax Everest on the side and 80mm dangling by cable ties in the front drive bays ('til I either get a Scythe Kama bay or another 120mm Everest, or both), absolutely kills the light the stock ones emit.

Temps in old case on a Vantage run were:-
CPU:- Idle= 32c / Vantage= 41c
GPU:- Idle= 52c / Vantage= 84c

Ambient room temp of 27.6c.

In Scout are:=
CPU:- Idle= 23c / Vantage= 34c
GPU:- Idle= 43c / Vantage= 76c

Ambient room temp of 25.1c.

Stock clocks on CPU and GPU.

Touch wood, that'll give me the OCing headroom I needed to push my GPU without hitting the 85c it seems to spack out on and become unstable any higher than my current specced clocks.
Also, most likely will push my CPU, but wanna get a new PSU first 'cos this one's been groaning at startup for a while now, so don't wanna risk OCing just yet.
Will update when I do.

BTW:- Can I join the club pwetty pwease?


[EDIT; Sorry a couple of those pics are upside-down, dunno wth Photobucket did to them...]
Absolutely Please sign in for us and Welcome aboard Scout. Sign in is on front page under the Logo. Thanks for your interest.

From the CMSSC.

That is one Crazy looking CPU cooler but I bet you get great temps with it. It fits the cases airflow.

BTW.. Loved the Mod.. I was sweating there for a minute..

So whos got push pull set up as exhaust with an H50 on this case? I tried the method with the push fan and the rad on the inside of the case, then the pull fan was mounted on the outside of the case. But the case door dose not shut. I had to shut the door first then mount the fan.

Which is lame because the door is stuck on lol. I'm thinking I could mount the rad plus both fans inside the case, just need to figure the exact size of the H50 screws and get some long ones.

Hi Eveybody!!!
I just had to stop by & warn you all. I will not be here to answer questions for about 2 weeks. I know I haven't been here much already but now we're down to the crunch!

The Carpet was put in today. No skimping on quality or especially the pad. For those who aren't in the know, you can have the best carpet in the world & if you have a cheap foam pad, the carpet will wear fast. Seeing as one or both of us may be in a wheelchair at any one time I got the heaviest rubber backed pad they had & the Stainmaster that is treated to the bottom of the loops and the weave too. The Carpet guy said it was great to work in our house, the floors were perfectly smooth, sealed with Kilz & rooms were totally empty and free of all dust. He gave me his name, home address & phone number & said if there was any problems or if I ever need anything with the carpet to call him directly & not Home Depot. He saw me taking a razor knife to shave off the little tiny paint bumps on the baseboards & said he too is a perfectionist & hates it when someone else messes with his work!

Computers: Man, mine is loaded with dust, everything still works great, except a little problem with the switch hanging on boot sometimes but I'll fix that after the move. Mindy's Scout is likewise, in bad need of cleaning and defragmenting but still zipping along. I tried to change my Avatar but it doesn't seem to want to take.

I may have time to stop by & look at the new builds but other than that I will be gone the next few weeks. Two, maybe 3 people can reach me by e-mail, I still have to check that at least a few times a week. Other than that, sorry but I'm a Ghost in the machine, you know I'm around but I can't respond to e-mails, phone calls, PM's, anything. We have to move in and get settled. When it's done I'll post pics of the new office! Wow, I can't believe it, we'll actually have an office!! We got our first power bill, almost full time A/C, lots of electronics running, battery chargers, refridgerator, saws, drills, mixers, blenders, hot water, lots of power tools, everything but our oxygen generators & it was $74-!! Man I love Energy Star products! Mindy almost passed out! That's 1/3 of what we've been paying for the trailer!

I don't yet have a picture of the completed bathroom, well it's still not painted anyway. When I come back I'll have a full slide show for you on Photobucket. I'll have everything, doors, new window, carpet, handicap ramps, gas range, range hood, re-built cabinets, the works! Then I'll start customizing Mindy's Scout. Enigma knows what I'm talking about!

My Bud Chris, has learned a lot from me, the cabinetry he's coming back to learn on his own time. I've learned a few things from him, like when you cross 2 wires in a hot switch, the switch blows apart! He scored one & I scored one! Here's Chris, self portrait:

I've gone from 256lbs on June 30th to 220 now. My underwear doesn't even stay up anymore!! We have 3 trees, a lawn & close to 300 flower bulbs to plant before winter hits. When winter does hit, I will be warm & cosy in the office. Then I will be back in force to help out you Scouts. Here is the office as it is today:

Special thanks to Rockr for helping keep our toes warm & toasty!! Thanks Rockr!

To Enigma, for all you do Boss, this ones for you:
Nothing like a toothy smile from gravel voice Gunny, R. Lee Ermy!

One more thing edit: Did I mention that the shower enclosure weighs close to 900lbs?? Wood, Greenboard, water barrier B paper, red shower pan, wood for the bench, V-sheeting which is Vapor sheet that roofers use, concrete, chicken wire, more concrete, thinset, tile, grout, plumbing, handicap grab bars (brushed nickel), shower door rails (Euro Style #2400), shower doors. Man that thing is solid! I feel bad for whomever wants to take it down!

Final Edit: Mindy decided I deserve a great Birthday (Sep 12th) present, so, on the 3rd I get to pick up this baby: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Philips-47...#ProductDetail

So, see ya & have a great time!!

I couldn't wait till Thursday.








For those that did not know of my dilemma, I had 2x9800 GT's that fried, and a really hot CPU.

This club helped me pick my parts properly! Thanks everyone!

Will post specs soon.

if anyone with Corsair HX series and this case could provide intel, would be great...
i think HXs have the same ~60cm 8-pin cables. TX series are ~61cm i think. thanks!
I have the HX650W and no, you do not need an 8-pin CPU extension cable.

Can anybody recommend some good fans to buy to place on the side window - Btw I like flashy lighty fans

Also, is there a way for me to install a fan controller on there and control the stock fans that came with the scout itself?

Bright, flashy. There's nothing better than Enermax's Vegas editions!
Here's the flash & glitz page: http://www.enermaxusa.com/catalog/pr...roducts_id=218
I have the original edition in the top bay of Mindy's Scout but definitly want her to have a Vegas 140mm for the bottom. They provide a good breeze too! Follow the link on the bottom of the page for where to buy!
