I'm sorry if I'm coming off newb-ish, but I just don't have that much experience with wiring fans and such. My old case was rather limited in air-flow, so I never had much experience with the intricacies of fan wiring.

I'm about to pop the case open anyways, so I suppose I'll find out what happens, eh?
Read my post above yours. Good luck and don't feel foolish about asking questions, thats why we are here to help each other!
Edit: I am sorry, yes you can tap into that molex.
and Gen E, sorry I missed your post also, I should have read further down the page..

You most certainly did!

You must've posted that whilst I was typing my previous post.

Now that I read what you posted, the diagram makes a lot more sense to me.

Seems the guy @ Micro Center had no idea what HE was talking about. Should've known.

Thanks for the assistance guys!

I do have another question while my PC is stiil running, and before I pop the case. If there is anybody here who also happens to be using a Hyper 212+ CPU cooler.. Do you know if I'll be able to fit a fan in the top slot of the side panel? It doesn't look like I have the clearance, but then again, it might be pretty close.

This is the fan I intend on using. If it won't fit, I'll probably just try mounting it to the other side of my heatsink.

I don't think you can get a fan in the top with that 212+, but the bottom is ok just don't try too go with a thicker than 25mm fan.
Thats nice you have a Microcenter nearby! The Scout fans a weard, don't blame Microcenter. Thats a good fan splitter, hang on to it, you will might have a need for it later.
What state are you in?

I also put some taller case feet on from MNPCTECH, which should help for better air flow of the power supply. The last thing I did was to cut some black acrylic for the back of the drive bay, love the way things reflects off it. I don’t think there will be a cooling issue with the HDD’s in the top bay, the front is open to plenty of cool air from behind the front cover.
I know I should put some kind of lights in the case, but I’m not into all the bright bling, I do like to sleep at night.
The front cover is lacking something.. Maybe just a steel or Acrylic front to set it off. If you go with steel get a preferated piece.. That's just my Two cents.

Your Scout looks great kev_b. I really like the red accents you added. I would suggest painting the frames of the Noctua fan black and placing a red version of the Corsair logo over that PSU. As for lighting, I think two white cathodes would look great in that case. You can always turn them off when you don't want them distracting you. Great work.

No, you won't be able to fit a fan on the top with the Hyper 212+.

I like the fan better on the bottom, anyways. Helps keep the GPU cool.

Hey guys. This should have been good news but, as you can see from my signature here, I am unable to post from my computer. After acquiring an Intel 120GB SSD, post installation yields the worst case scenario: computer will not boot. No power at all, tried different wall socket. Do you recommend a complete tear down? How likely is it that the front power button fails. And could static discharge actually kill it like that? I'll keep you guys posted.

  1. NO to all.
  2. It is very likely you have a wire shorted.
  3. shut down the psu.
  4. Wait 10 seconds and then turn the switch to it back on.
  5. Then just start unplugging things one at a time till you figure out what is shorting..
  6. It is something simple. It always is.
  7. Don't worry..

Paint a Noctua fan, God forbid! I plan on replacing the fans soon to THESE.
