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 . . .

You know.. Its not the fact that Corsair is so much better than everyone else. It is the customer service and the warrentee that People love about this PSU. I had the HX 1000 go out on me and it took them three weeks but I got a brand new one in the box back after all the trouble.. Great Buyer choice if you ask me..

i am not sure if you are gnna be able to put a 25mm thick fan on the upper grill on the left side. so you can use the lower grill to put a fan on certainly. but you should consider putting a high CFM fan to the 5.25 bay as well...it would feed a lot of air to your cogage true's fan. also it'll even cool the rams a bit, i think

You are very right. Almost half of our Storm Scout Users have added a 120 fan to the DVD drive bays.. But a Cup holder would also be a cool Mod too.

Yeah i thought about that about the left panel. If i place my heatsink so the fan shoots upwards, but the have a fan blowing from the 5.25, would that be an airflow problem with the heatsink? kind of blowing against each other.

no i don't think there'll be any problems like airflow working against each other. i think it'll do good. and i forgot to say.. you sure picked a good heatsink.

Awesome. i cant wait to build my machine. Should happen by tuesday. I've done a LOT of research on parts to make sure i get what i want and know what its capable of. Thanks for the remarks on the heatsink. I think its surprising a lot of people with its size, cost, and performance. A heads up if you of anyone decides to pick one up. There is a new revision in accessories but stores are still selling both. The old box came with a push pin mount and you need to spend $10 more for a back plate. The box looks like this:



The NEW boxing is the same price and already includes the nice metal back plate. Look for this packaging:

great ideas guys. Another question. This time about PSU placing. Is it better to aim the PSU fan down so it pulls in cool air or UP for its basically pulling in (and removing) heat from the bottom of the case and pushing it out the back? Seems like either could work well. I like the idea of the PSU getting fresh and cool air from the bottom, but wonder if it really needs that kind of cooling or if its better to remove heat from inside the case and improving airflow in there.

Definitely, but that's just my opinion. I hate fan noise and that window makes a ton of noise with a fan in it.

this is not my computer but wanted to show you the Scout with the true spirit heatsink and why i worried about its placement. look how it blocks the top fan. a horizontal placement would be much better as we discussed.
