Damn shame I threw out a couple of old Optical Drives not so long ago, coulda probably used the base section of that after a bit of cutting and pilot holes.

Any idea if there's something similar on the market I could buy to do the same sorta thing? I dunno what your adapter looks like, so am unsure if I could find one as close to it as possible. Cable ties just won't look nice for it at all.

I saw the LED coming off the fan on the front of that bay, that's awesome.
I'm planning on having a Fan Controller aswell as my DVD Drive in the bays, and also a 3.5" card reader is currently situated at the top, so I'll only have room for a 120mm on the back end of the bay like where yours is, I did think about messing about with the Front Panel and somehow fitting a card reader within the Front Panel after moving the current fixtures about and altering it (change layout of USB ports to 2+2, maybe remove eSATA), but I probably won't get the time or money to faff around on that for a long time.
I'd say your on the right track with the defunct opti drives. That gives me an idea....

She looks a lot cleaner now. I can wait to sleeve all the cables, and get a false floor+hdd cover in the future. xD

I just need to know where the one molex from the case that is female goes, and where I plug in the HD audio cable and the one attached to it from the case.
Okay.. As far as the AC97 and the HDAUD plugs. Just cut the AC97 out of the curcuit. It is for old P4 motherboards or older. The HD Audio plugs into the HD Audio jack on the mobo or the Video or Sound card. What ever you are using. The jack on the Mobo looks like a USB 2 Jack but it will say Audio or HD Audio on near the jack.. Just line up the pins and press down.

If there is a Female molex then it needs a man with power. Find a power plug from the PSU and plug her in.

...OK; got to tend to the Scout to do some testing's ( get reading's of video card test's with the stock cooler on it,
before i dismantle and test out with the Watercooling Full block upon to take the Scout: SEAL Edition to the next level.....
....Long story short.........REALLLLY short > > > > System won't boot up ! ! ! . . . ..... . . . . after gutting the case
out last night and all..........come to find out the PSU took a dump ! ! ! Problem i have is when you hit the power button,
you get just a millisec of power; flash of the hhd & pwr led's & fans turn for just a millisec., then nothing; just sit's there
with pwr led on BUT nothing..... I have NO idea WHAT the heck happened; this is the first time i ever had a PSU
go on me just as this.......bad enough, this is the Corsair TX750 i got from NewEgg on Dec. 30, 2009 . . . . . only 9 month's old ! ! !
SO, i guess it's over to Corsair's web sight for and RMA issue . . . . . Just to confirm this PSU problem, i do have an old
OCZ 550 PSU, and install'd with MoBo setup on bench setup; WHAM ! ! system boot's up and all . . . . ..... .....
just wished i knew WHAT happened OR ??? IF i did something wrong. . . . . IDK . . .

Hi. I'm thinking of buying a Cooler Master Storm Scout case and have a question. After checking out this awesome thread i have a few concerns about heatsinks and airflow at the top of the case. Seems pretty tight and I thought you guys would have some great input for me before I buy. I purchased a Cogage True Spirit and my concern is that it will nearly touch the top of the case and somewhat block the top exhaust fan. even the V8 I was considering does. Since there are no other vents on the top of the case, i dont want heat to build up. The usual way to mount the heatsink is so the heatsinks fan blows towards the rear of the case. If I mounted it 90 degrees so that the heatsink fan blew upwards towards the top, it might create more space for the top exhaust fan to pull other case heat out AND help move the air out quicker. The rear fan would also help too. Is it ok and advisable to mount the fan like this? Any other solutions? Thanks.

i don't give it much chance so but i'll say it anyways...could it possibly be that you made the reset and\\or power sw connections wrong somehow?

well i have a Nero AK967 heatsink and i seated it so that its blowing air up. that wasn't my choice actually(that's how my mobo's seat was oriented) but i'm happy with it. i think it'll do a good job, if not better.
