Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout

CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 955 c3 Black Edition 3.2GHZ (stock)

MOBO: MSI 890FXA-GD70

PSU: XFX 750W black edition semi modular

HDD: Samsung F3 7200RPM 1T

OD: Lite-ON 24x DVD-RW

My next purchase shall be 8gb (2x 4gb) 1600 8-8-8-24 RAM RipJaws eco

And I'm still waiting to see the prices of ATI's 68XX series, because at the moment I'm thinking of one 5850 now, and another just after Christmas.

And I'm also wringing my hands about which cpu cooler to get.

DO YOU SEE ANY PROBLEMS WITH THESE ITEMS FITTING IN THE CASE?

I'm thinking if I go for a Hydro H50/or 70, I'll move the rear 120 fan to the side, and I'm also thinking of an extra 140mm fan at the front of the case in the drive bay. If I do the extra 140mm, then I should put the 120mm blowing out? Otherwise there might be too much pressure to equalize? Or would the two side vents being left uninterupted keep the pressure fine by breathing either way... hmm.

Um, Go! Calm my nerves! Tell me everything is going to be alright and that everything will fit just dandy!

I don't know for the other components(but i think there should be no problem), but even if it sound obvious i'll tell you that the HD and the ODD will fit and cause you no problems at all, i own them

(Ok, GoodInk already replied on that )

It would be my opinion that the H70 Corsair would be better at cooling but that is just MHO.

I have only a doubt.. it seems difficult to install from what i see in the reviews.
It is so? And, i guess i have to take down my motherboard from the Scout.. sigh..
I thought it was easy, I did have to take out the MB with mine, but my MB sits alittle low and to the front, just enough cover the one nut. That just got me thinking, I didn't have a lot of room on the top with the fan in, depending on your MB you might have to mount blowing up, or take the top fan out. The top fan doesn't do a lot in this case anyways.

I like the build very much. Wished I would have had a quality build like that when I did my first. Rep UP.

Hi all!

I'm new to building PCs, and currently building up my own rig out of a premade PC I used to own.

My first purchase was a Storm Scout with Silent Pro 700 PSU and ATI 5850 GPU. Absolutely LOVE this case, as long as everything fits in, I can't see myself replacing this case anytime soon!

Looking to add some extra Red Cold Cathode tubes, but heard they turn out pink. What advice do people have for lighting up the rig a bit more. I want to have the same deep red as the cooling fans that come with it. Any Ideas?

Anyways, awesome case, recommend it to anyone that wants a rig with a graphics card that isn't a 5870!

Well 70 euros is way too much for the H50, that works out to be $96

They do turn out a little pink by them self, but mixed with the LEDs from the fans its still red, not as deep red though. If you want the deep red you will have to go with LED's. You can get them in many forms. These guys have a lot of LED lighting.

Bear in mind, the cost of the H50 includes the Fan.

The Megahalem does not. So, you're looking at another 15 - 20 in cost per Fan, if you plan to go with a Push/Pull set up.

Push/Pull is where you have two fans mounted on either side of the Cooler.

One fan is pushing the air into the cooler, while the other fan is sucking that air out and pushing it towards the case exhaust fan. This set up, moves air through the Cooler much faster, and DOES reduce temps even further; in some cases you can see 3c - 5c drop in temps, sometimes more depending on the fans!

A lot of people with expensive coolers like the Megahalem's are typically doing this with them.

Mind, you don't have to... but its just something to bare in mind. If you're buying a Cooler like the Mega, thats not a baby you put a cheap $10 fan on...

Thats like.. damn, finding yourself naked in bed with Michelle Rodriguez (your Megahalem) and, discovering that... damn, you're just not, preforming good enough for her!
