Another gripe, i can't install a fan in the top, and when I install one in the side-panel sucking air in it's really really noisy. So i just have it blowing out.
Yes it is steel and strong. It is made to be picked up and moved, Hence the steel reinforced handle at the top. There is a guy in Australia that hauled his 2 miles to a friends for a lan party. The work out will do you good.

The fins on the side is a Noise maker. They should have just installed whistles in them it would have been better that the noise it makes now. We change out the window and cut 120 Circles out to mount the fan and that takes care of that.

yes there is an opening that's for sure. but look at the 12607th post. if the mobo you'll be working has the 4pin or 8pin like it was in that picture. you won't be able to do it without an extension cable. but if the 4pin socket is in the upper left corner (i guess that is more common). you can do the behind the tray routing. i did it with an HX750W psu without an extension. its 8pin cable is about 61cm(24")...so you just need to look at the cable lenght of the psu you'll use

Rep to whoever can help me out with this!
Ok, dude, dudette, not sure, never assume anymore, esp after the informative article Engima posted there!

However, as far as I know, the 5850, in any form, will fit in a Scout, no problem. I measured Mindys Scout, which has an XFX 5850 in it. It also has almost an inch left over. I don't know why but when they revised the ATI boards, some numbskull got it in thier head that the plugs should be in the nose instead of the side. That's where there could be a problem, depending on the particular board (read as PCB), the size of it's connectors & the size of your PSU connectors.

The 5870 though, we did have a guy buy a Sapphire 5870 R2.0 and it did not fit in the Scout, esp because they put the connectors nose end. As for my reference 5870, if you look again at Enigma's spreadsheat you will also see that my 5870 is 26.5 centimeters long. Technically that's the length of the Scout Pci-E slot to drive cage distance, you'll also see I've had it both in a Scout & my Haf 932. It does fit in a Scout, but the nose hits the drive cage, enough that I put a little dent there (drive cage) so it doesn't hurt the plastic on the nose but, as I've posted in my Market listing. I can put it in Mindy's Scout & send you a few pics of it if you want. I've offered before but no one ever took me up on it.

OTH, Nvidia promised & did, go the other way. Hmm, also relates to Enigmas post. So, they put all the Fermi connectors on the side & made the boards (with coolers, not just PCB), so they're wider, not longer. To also answer the guy who asked which to get, a 465 or 470, always get the most bang for your buck, right now that's a 470. A 465 is a 470 chip that didn't run on all cylinders. A 470 & 480 however, have all cylinders but have been throttled back to help control the heat. It has been done before that Nvidia later on will give you a driver to turn on the extra part of the chip. In the case of the 480 that is the .2 part of the 3.2 billion transistors. It's been a long time (think 9800 series), but they have done it before.

As for heat from the 470's, 480's, Fermi in general, it really depends. When I get back here you'll see that's my favorite phrase "it depends". If you have a 480 with a high flow bracket & control the fan speed using MSI afterburner, no, you can have 2 480's in a Scout & never have a heat problem. You may need to put a better fan in the top 140mm hole but no heat problem on the cards themselves.

BTW, I love the way Enigma says this, the shin of the card, cause we all say the nose but no one knows what to call the side and since PCI-E came out the bottom is now the top & heat rises, not falls, so why the heck did they turn the cards over? Anybody? Anybody? I know, anyone interested? Yeah, you put the plugs in the "Shin".

@ Striker: No, your 240 is not thermally designed to cool 2 470's running full tilt! You can mod it though & get it closer. Personally, I'd leave the 470's air cooled, increase the fan speed incrementally with Afterburner & only worry about cooling the CPU. A 240 rad, of any make is designed to cool any CPU on the market up to 4.0G's. Mine does as long as the Rad isn't dusty!

can you tell me where the vreg heatsink is on the asrock x58?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157163

and is it a major problem that will affect my system if i don't do anything about it? thanks
Ok dude. This is really an easy one, the Vreg on modern boards is always to the left of the CPU (umm, Dell may be an exception), as you're looking at the board the way it's mounted in a Scout, it's right between CPU & I/O shield, this is why it has trouble in any case. Yours has a big ASRock on it, mine is a bunch of fins. The heat has trouble escaping because there is very little flow there. Don't know how tall yours is, but to cool mine it is advised to mount a 40x40mm Delta fan there & let it run full blast.

Is it a major problem? Well, kinda no, kinda yes, here it comes.... It really depends. If you're overclocked to 4.0 & you play games or something else that stresses the CPU & your Vreg is constantly showing 110c, yep, you're gonna have problems. The first thing that will hit is CPU errors, these usually come out as spontaneous re-boots or Windows crashes that shut down the current running program. If you're playing a game (Crysis, it's CPU intense), & it always crashes after the end scene when you kill the Alien Menace, then yeah, it's a problem. Mine went psychadelic! People used to pay to see that!!!

Long term, even though they're now solid capacitors that can't leak, they will weaken & you'll get even more re-boots. If it's reading 110c while you aren't stressing the CPU, send it back, you have a defective board, no one will question you, they'll just replace it. The other side of this is what one guy said: No, solder doesn't melt 'till it hits 200c.

The other part of it depends is, if it only does it under extreme CPU stress, all 8 cores running Prime 95, then it won't be a problem, get an inexpensive little Delta fan, put it on & you'll be fine.

Yes, because as Don McClean said in American Pie, "Fire is the Devils only friend". Scientifically though, the wax would run down quick, the fan spinning would push air into the flame, increasing wax flow (btw, this includes dripless, they don't drip 'cause the wax is low heat & evaporates to stain your ceiling) & stopping the fan before it gets enough speed up. Or the weight of the candle would burn the fans bearings stopping it. Esp sleeve bearings, they aren't designed to run horizontal.

Now I'm just waiting 'till the video comes out!

Do a search here on OCN, run Enigma8750 in quotes, then in second set of quotes put case modding 101. On that thread you'll see our fearless leader prove that you can paint any fan any color!!

Oops, did I give away a seach secret Boss?
