I added a little extra to the cover



I'll probably add a "The Official CM Storm Scout Club" / "overclockers.net" logo to the case as well...a bit of advertising hehe

I added the additional 140mm fan to the front of my case today. My idle temps lowered to 33-35c and load temps in game were 40-42c with about 35-40% cpu usage. I'll try GTA 4 later to see what temps are with 60-70% usage.

My GPU temps also dropped significantly. Idle went from 42-44c to 38-39c, under load went from 45-60c to 40-55c depending on the game.

I'm very satisfied with my temps considering the CPU is OC'd over 700mhz per core and the GPU is oc'd as well.

I think you could get it into the drive bays with a water block.

http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/15705/34/

Then you have the challenge of putting a water cooling system in there!
PSU Space in the CM Storm Scout Specs. is 11.5 inches of space from back of case to Drive Bays.

What material did you use to cover up the Drive bay?

Hello all! I have something I would like to share you guys today. I was bored and messin around with the fans in my scout and I said, "hey, why don't I take my 140mm scythe fan that is mounted on the top and mount it in the back of my drive bays to see if there would be some extra cooling." Damn was I right!!! I took this fan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-080-_-Product , used some zip ties to tie it down to the back of my 5.25 drive bays and wala!!!! My temps dropped anywhere from 2-4c across the board! I never knew the potential of this fan until I did this, ITS A MONSTER!!! Using a top fan in a scout is practically a joke, they have so many fins and holes covering it up to make it look cool that it destroys the airflow and probably makes the system hotter just from the operating temp of the fan! lol But I had an extra antec tricool so i just threw that in for the top fan and it doesn't push much air out the top like I said but now my system lights up out of the top which makes it look even cooler!!
I highly suggest to anyone trying to get the best cooling out of their scout do this, it is one of the most beneficial mods I have done yet!!
Current temps via speedfan(and by the way it is very warm in my room right now): GPU - 45c, System Temp - 39c, CPU Temp - 38c, NB Temp - 40c, HDD Temp - 36c.
And by the way, I also recommend putting your hard drives in the lowest possible slot in the hard drive cage because heat rises and as that heat rises off the hard drive, it can be swept away by the front fan.

Im just curious, Does anyone else have a humming sound when they install the fans on the side of the case? I tried pushing against the plastic window and it is still there. How would I fix it? I dont know what to buy to fix it. There are so many options.

What rubber feets do you guys suggest for this case?

I assume you'll be cutting the top ones off? Primary video card slot/s are oriented as the higher expansion ports.


.
Well if it fitts inside a drive bay its just a matter of drilling a hole and cutting off some of the drivebay plating of.


And if i chop open the HDD cage it will be the bottom, so it still holds its form(From what ive seen it looks like its a plate bent 2 times so its constructtion is saparate from the drivebays. But do inform me if im wrong) and then make som bends at the bottom so i can bolt it down again
