OK guys I finally got my luggage and got to work on the Scout. I installed the HDD cover and PSU cover, thanks Enigma! Plus I added some CCFL's, and added a second fan on the CPU, and toyed with putting the skull up from but you can't really see it with the cover on. I'm wanting to putting a fan in the window and mount the skull grill there but my fan screws are too short. Does anyone know where to get longer fan screws?

it fit on scout no problem if ur not using the top side panel fan. i know i had it on my old cm storm scout before i switch to h50.. should fit perfectly man.

Awaiting delivery of my nice new virgin Storm Scout, should be here any minute! Even changed it in my computer setup! Only things that have crossed my mind is I am sure that my Saphire Vapor-X 5850 is going to be a little big, power plugs in from the back to. Must be someone in this thread who had similiar issues(sorry, I like the case but asking me to read through ALL this thread....

Oh, and I hope the case is wide enough to accommodate my Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme, old case was not! It meant having to leave the side off(with two fans that cooled down the chipset nicely.... replaced by two fans sitting either side of the N/B and the memory SIMS(could not believe how hot all this got without cooling).

I just hope the Scout has nice airflow and has quiet fans. Does it? I don't have a digital camera and my precious HTC Desire got robbed off me yesterday by a bunch of the UK's favourite Asian Immigrants so all I got is a couple of crappy old mobile phones for pictures but a picture would be nice I guess, especially if this case has decent wire management.... my lighting/mobo/sims/coolers/etc are pretty nicely colour co-ordinated so it will look ok from the outset.

I will most certainly mod this case, I am after something subtle but spectacular!

Okay. My new Rosewill fans arrived. I put them on the side as intakes turning my rig into positive airflow vs negative. These things are beautiful. They have such high CFM that my temps have dropped 3-4 degrees and tons of air is coming out of the top and back exhaust fans. The problem is the noise. I remember reading there was a problem with the plastic grill causing a whining noise? Any ideas how to reduce this.

You can slow them down or make a window and cut your own holes.

@TheWire
The CPU cooler might not fit, 131(L) × 112.31(W) × 150.7(H) Heat-sink Dimensions 120 x 120 x 158mm to 169mm is the optimum size range for this case. And for the GPU, you could always cut out the HHD bays and get a CM 5.25" HHD adapter, cheap fix and they look great in this case. I think there is a pic of it on the first page.
