a year or so ago we had a guy actually chisel his out into pieces.. He took pictures.. I wish I could find them.. in the 500s I guess. So long ago but so funny..

No, but give me a few days / week, I can do a scan for it. My registry has just undegone a deep cleaning so I have to load an old copy then hit it again.

Tip for getting screws out. I find a lot of screws that are put in by a machine are kinda slip screws, the threads aren't stripped, but it's like the last one is, so the screw just spins, if that, when you try to take it out. The trick, insert something thin & flat under the screw head, a tiny screwdriver or a thin stiff piece of metal then while prying up, unscrew the screw.
Remember, lefty loosy, righty tighty, except in some plumbing and some car parts!

No, I didn't have any problems with the screws in the Scout, some seem stuck but after the intital -Snap- they came out fine.

Ok, what are you asking? Put this board into a 3D model of the Scout??

BTW, guys, don't believe him, the Scout didn't exist that long ago. Enigma was the first one to do a great mod of it. If you want to see the build log I'm sure I can find it again.

Edit: Here I was, thinking the 6xxx models of video cards from ATI, scuse me, AMD were going to better, faster, like the 580 is a fully working Fermi chip. Nooooo, they're acutally slower, less expensive models of graphics cards! HUH!! How does it equate that the next higher model number is a lesser card, fewer transistors, smaller everything?

Edit 2: Here are some tips for tweaks in Vista. I've only done the ones for NTFS in Win7. Warning!! Always back up your registry before trying any tweaks, put the backup on a seperate drive & if things go wrong, use an emergency boot disk (you did make one, right?) to click on that .reg file to restore your registry.
If you don't know how, go to the first link to see how to back it up.
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...p-restore.html

Oh, the Ram one didn't work, maybe because I have a high overclock??

Then there's this, open a text editor, this has to be plain text, no formatting.
Insert this, click Save As, call it clear active Ram or whatever. Right click it, run as administrator, then let it run, it will clear some hung up programs out of Ram, it will not clear anything like what's in your temp file clogging up your ram from your visits to ActiveX or Java or websites running Adobe flv's. You have to either do a disk cleaning, or clean the files manually.

This is the command: %windir%\\system32\
undll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks

Early morning Edit: Hole saw 4 1/2" on Amazon.com:
Here's the catch though, it doesn't include the arbor, aka, the thing you put in the drill this one fits my drill:
Watch out though, most people only have 3/8" chucks, mine happens to be 1/2". The one I posted from the Home Depot also did not have the Arbor.

There are these:
Note that it does say use with a drill press, Striker uses one of these.
@ Striker: Would it work in a normal drill with steady hands??

Early Edit #2: I do have one of these though, will it cut the 120mm hole with a dremel attached:

Bri the new AMD cards are named different. So the 6800's are the new 5700's and the 6900's will be the new 5800's.

Early Edit #2: I do have one of these though, will it cut the 120mm hole with a dremel attached: Amazon.com: Dremel 678-01 Circle Cutter and Straight Edge Guide: Home Improvement
personally. i would use the hole saw method. its MUCH easier and even a bit safer. that being said. i cut the hole in my window with one of those adjustable cutters and it worked out ok. but to do it that way you need to cut from both sides to keep it even remotely clean and they are quite a bit harder to handle than a regular hole saw. if the points are even just a little dull they have an awful tendency to bind and do bad things to you or the piece you are working on. i refuse to use one out of a drill press when i can help it.

so yea... if your looking to get new tools, get the hole saw and the shank

edit: and i havent used the Dremel thing at all so i really couldent tell you if that would work or not but i would assume that it would work grate up till the last centimeter or so. but i would still go for the hole saw if you can

I have it done, I just didn't have time to find a place to upload it over my lunch break. FYI the picture used for the MB tray on the Scout isn't to scale, the try is. I didn't think the MB was fitting until I put a PSU in it.

is it better to.
3x120 radiator-cpu cooler- 1x120 radiator - a split to gpu coolers, with chipset coolers
or
3x120 radiator - cpu cooler - a split with y adpter to gpu cooler, and chipset coolers - 1x120 radiator - back to resivour.
Just trying to come up with build, like you see in all the pictures
been looking at all pictures that people have been submitting, to this site and some of the builds are absolutely insane. They kind of make you look at your current build, and its like, all wrong, all wrong, ALL WRONG. slam your fist on the desk a few times and cry. WHY GOD, WHY ME, THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME, WHY DAMN YOU, WHY, WHAAAAA
well anyways in basic is it better to have a 1x120 radiator in the middle of your loop, to help cool or just before return on resivor.
All help appreciated

I would say before, but a lot in the WC section say it doesn't matter. One question why are you putting a Y in the loop?
