The Scout allows for 10.6, but only the XFX cards are that long AFAIK. Also with the power connectors being on the side and not the end like the 6850 you will have no trouble fitting one in your Scout.

Be sure to post pics, cuz we wanna see too!

Just thought I would share a link for some computer related vinyl decals that are computer related... You can get them with the etched glass look. I've bought stuff from the guy before.

If you look at some of my pictures in my gallery you will see some of the decals that they sell. ShadowMajik The Store

Edit.... I was looking at some of his stuff.... and you can get a 29 Inch, Tux The Linux Penguin.

It's funny you should say that, cuz that's exactly the reason I thought you picked the Gladiator.


On a different note, there's been a debate going here about the effectiveness of the H50 in the Scout over a ''megahalem'' type cooler at similar prices and before I go on I want to make clear I'm not trying to start or continue a flame war or call any one poster out on this. I'm just trying to add more info, so that anyone trying to choose between the ''megahalem'' tower coolers or the H50 can make a more educated choice.

To get started this is my setup as tested today.

H50 Rad mounted directly to case wall at rear exhaust location.
CM Excalibur fan mounted to H50 Rad as exhaust pushing through the Rad. out the back. I have this fan set at CPU target 40 degrees, min CPU fan speed at 62.5% in the BIOS
I removed the top 140 mm Stock fan and replaced it with the H50 Corsair 120mm fan as intake.
I have two 120 mm fans in a push pull arrangement spaced 3.5'' apart in the 5.25'' optical bay as intakes.
Stock red led 140mm intake fan in stock location in front of the HDD bay.
Front intake and top fan grills removed for optimized airflow
Phenom II X2 550 Callisto unlocked to X4 B50 OC'd to 3.6Ghz at 1.34v
6Gb DDR3 1600 at 1.5v
Radeon HD 5870 at stock clocks
Ambient temp 19c (66.2f)
CPU idle temp 26c (78.8)


CPU load @ 100% on 4 cores 39c (102.2f)


Individual results will vary, but this proves at least to me that the H50 can definitely hold it's own in the Scout. The only drawback to me is the CM Hyper 212+ with push/pull can yield very similar results for a fraction of the cost of the H50, but it also costs a fraction of the big megahalems as well.

Depends on the cpu. It might be a good choice for a Socket 775 C2D, an AMD dual core, or an i3, but throw an i7 Quad Core S1366 at it and try to OC and it will more than likely fall flat on it's face. That's where the Megahalems really shows it's muscle.

Rockr69, I did an experiment with my Lian-Li PC-50R, I found less fans is just as good as more fans, I had 2 intake fans in the front and removed them to see what change I had in my temps, there was no change and I’ve had many cpu coolers in this case from the H50, CH-70, both push pull, the Coolermaster V-6 GT, Thermaltake Frio (best temps by 2 to 3 degrees because of the 8mm heat pipes).
I think as long as there’s good air flow thru the front a push pull cpu cooler draws enough air into the case as will the exhaust fans, 2/ 140mm top fans and a 120mm rear case fans are the only case fanes I have going on the PC-50R case, the plus for me is a lot less noise, I have to put my ear to the case to tell if the fans are running.
My other Lian-Li, PC-8FIB I have more case fans running, 2 140mm Deepcool (1200 rpm) fans in the front as well as 1 140mm on the top and a 120mm (1500 rpm) on the rear, 2 Deepcool 120mm fans on the Thermaltake Frio. I am going to use this same set up on my Gladiator case with the optical drive at the bottom of the drive cage so that the Frio push pull can draw in plenty of cool air thru the front grill, I’m also going to remove the foam from the slot covers because I have a filter that will fit the front of the drive bay and will be easier to clean. Going to get the case powder coated next week after a little more trimming where I made some cuts.

As a follow up to kev_b's post, EHume has a thread where he only has two case fans installed, but both unplugged. It shows how much air moves through a system using just the PushPull fans from the heatsink.
