i was thinking that i could use 2 strips, one in the back and one across the top to light the mobo/video cards but i think at the top it would be too much, but im not sure... what do you guys think?

maybe just one strip at the bottom?
I think given you're a sci-fi techno geek and the name of your build is the reactor, we don't know what kind of reactor. Maybe it's some kind of alien tech? I'd go with more green and no dye in lines. Let the red E of the board be unique like the heart of some malevolent force hell bent on the destruction of goodness. White is pure and clean. The green you're already using is dangerous looking like Mr.Yuk!. Remember him? Go with more green. I gotta a fever and the prescription is more green!

Here Comes The Mummies! Never heard of them. Those guys are cool!

That cheered me up. Felt the need to return the favor.

I agree with Rocker, flood it with green light so everything has a tint of green but the red E glowing in the background, that would look good and fit the name.

So I've decided that if the 6950 is too long for the scout then I'll remove the HDD cage from it.

Reason: Cost.

Cheapest Mobo I found with a top pci slot - £119.99

2 x Akasa 2.5/3.5 - 5.25 drive bay adapter - £11.98

Simple really

Anyway I wanted to ask for a bit of advice on removing the HDD cage. Ive located 8 rivets that need to be drilled out and the bottom 4 seem easy enough as they are on the bottom of the case however the other 4 are at the bottom of the 5.25 drive bay.

They seem a little awkward to get to and I was wondering what the best way of removing them would be, Im only guessing at the moment because all my gear is still in the system so Im not sure on how much space I have to work with once the case is empty. If i actually removed everything I think id have enough space to drill them out from the side facing the inside of the case.

Maybe I need a small drill lol

Alright guys, I don't know wether I am going off topic here, but my question is about the Scout, and wether my build will fit in.
Judging by the posted specs, it seems it will, but this is just to be absolutely sure.

Case: Scout
Mobo: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula
RAM: Kingston 4GB HyperX DDR3-1600 CL9 kit
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 750W Modular
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1GB (Crossfired)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition
CPU cooler: Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B

If you guys could do me a massive favour, and tell me wether this would fit, I'd be the happiest kid in the world. Because I really want to get the Scout

Thanks

From what I can gather all of your picked out hardware will definitely fit. You may have to position the Mugen in a bottom to top config to clear the top fan in the Scout, but everything else will fit. I do recommend going with XFX on your 6870s, because of the lifetime warranty. Sapphire is only three years. Other than that get that Scout built and report back here with pics so we can add you to the roster. Happy building

So what you are saying is that I should flip the Mugen 90 degrees ?
And thanks for helping me out ;D I really appreciate it.
One more question tho, say I was about to get a Prolimatech Megahalems, with a Scythe Slipstream fan. Would that fit aswell ? :0
Anyways, I don't really need the lifetime warranty, since in three years I have upgraded again Besides, I've never been dissapointed by Sapphire.
