Works on most front bezels that aren't attached with screws, and these don't have any screws. After you've popped it off a few times it comes off much easier.
+1 The first few time I thought it was going to break, but it didn't. Now it is much easier, but it still stays put just fine.

Yah, my old case (which sucks but was the most I'd spent on a case before!), I used to use longnose pliers and squeeze the mounts on the inside of the case while gently pulling on the bezel to get it off, lol
Slipped and caught the base of my finger in the pliers more than a few times!

When I was researching into the case I'd buy, I saw that 3DGamerMan bloke just yank the front bezels off.
Didn't realise that was how to get 'em off, and I've been working on and building PC's for myself, friends and family for years, haha

When I got my Scout, I gave it a try for the first time, holding the top of the case firmly with my left hand to stop it flying off the table, I cringed as I did it, dreading I'd snap the bezel of my new case.

Ah the memories

Down in the lower right corner of the case (below the 5.25 in bays where the Optical drives go), there is a cage with two sides full of ovals. The HDD gets sandwiched between two black pieces of plastic found in the white box and slides into the cage between the oval rows. Hope that makes sense.

Pics on the first page show it better.

As you see it can go in any of the slots between the ovals. I use the middle-ish one.

Yes. You put the drives in with the connectors facing away from you and connect the wires from the back side.

Yes connect wiring last. What you should have done is bench run your system before installing it all in your case to be sure there are no probs. Remember that one for the future. Hurry and get those pics of your Scout posted so we can "Officially" roll out the red carpet of welcome for you.

OK. Those of you regulars here and you know who you are; know that I am very seldom idle. This weekend is no exception. Tiring of having to take the side of my case off every time I fudged up an OC to clear the CMOS I decided to do something about it. Heres the pics of what I did. WARNING!!! This post contains images of Storm Scout and MSI motherboard brutality and could be disturbing to some viewers. Viewer discretion is advised.No Motherboard or cases were harmed in the making of this post


I went down to my local Radio Shack (love that place!) and bought a push button momentary on switch and soldered a red and black lead to it.


After removing the top panel I drilled a hole for the switch to reside. I don't know what size. It's push button switch sized


Using a 2 pin header I salvaged from something I can't remember and using a USB wiring harness from an old case, cuz good modders don't never (like the double negative I used there?)throw anything out, I made a lead from the switch with a connector in the middle. Installation would have been impossible otherwise.


I soldered red and black leads to the 2 pin connector and soldered the other ends to my, heres the squeemish part, less than a year old twice RMA'd still under warranty motherboard.


Well that didn't work cuz I didn't get the right pins. So out comes the motherboard two more times. On the third time I got the correct pins and out came the soldering iron for the final time.


After testing this arrangement three times by shorting across the two pins in the 2 pin connector I reinstalled the MOBO.

Now was the time to install the switch into the front panel. I had to splay the connectors out to fit, but it worked out great.



Now some would say ''Rockr, is it smart having a Clear Cmos button right out where you could accidentally push it and toast your board? To that I would normally say, no....not smart at all. But!! HaHa!! This button is so hard to push to make contact accidental pushing is pert near impossible. You really have to push hard to get it to work and hold it down for like 5 seconds or more for the CMOS to clear. So no danger. Again I am genious Revel in my magnitude and be stupified with my brilliance!!! OK just kidding about the whole I'm better than you are thing.

Take your time and think ahead. A Modular PSU will yield a huge difference on cable management in this case. Check out the thread. There are lots of us with excellent cable management posts.
