I don't know about that one, but you CAN fit a V10 in there. And it's huge. Actually, this case seems to fit ANYTHING...

I think I'm going nix the idea of adding a 120mm fan to the bottom. I took some measurements, and while it would fit with my current powersupply (barely), if I upgrade to a bigger PSU down the road, I would be screwed. Instead, I'm going to make a new plexiglass window with one centered spot for a single 120mm a la Bill Owens' mod.

This question would propably fit better in the modding forum, but uh... I feel more comfortable asking it here.

Im thinking of getting a purple UV cold cathode for my scout. But the only uv-sensitive thing i have in there is my an AC Ryan purple blackfire fan. Think it will look good if i put the cold cathode in there? Will it actually light up anything but the fan? Should i go for a normal purple cold cathode instead?

Go with red or Purple for this case.. If you do go UV then accent it with a blue or purple and you will get the effect you want. If I were you the cold cathodes are really cheap so buy a set of each color and mix and match till you get the effect you want then sell the other cold cathodes to your friends to recover you money. But buy the pairs. Don't go any longer than 12 inches. The 4 inch size is the best for the Scout.

The only thing that makes noise on mine is the aftermarket fans I put on the outside. other that that this thing is almost silent. The stock fans are nice!

Hey, I just bought a 1900$ computer, I dont have unlimited money D: I'll buy 2 purple and 2 red ones, non-UV to be on the safe side. If i put a purple one on the bottom (where the purple fan is) and a red one on the top, do you think it will be red on the top and purple on the bottom, or just a mix of red and purple in the whole computer?

I agree but just barely. The engineers must have figured the least amount of space necessary to fit parts in this box.

Am having doubts of ordering this. I feel like am downgrading from a tempest.
Could someone tell me how the air flow is. cause i was getting high temperature with the nzxt tempest and that case it bigger and has 6 fans.

you cant afford another 20 euro.. I understand it's a nice build

For this effect I used the OCZ power supply with red light inside it. Two fans on the door red leds x4 per fan=8 + 1 12 inch Cold cathode at the top.

Mixing colors is not that bad though. Here is an example.


With this effect I used an RGB Effect. Red + Green cold cathodes (12 inch) and Blue 4 Led fan at the top. 120mm.

Here is the window. This window is not tinted.

I think you are too. Your not downgrading.. Your upgrading big time. But lets see.



Filled with goodies.



And two 120 fans at the top.. Question are they loud?





The wire management for the scout is great. The rear access to the back of the CPU for cooler changing is great.


This is a 140 mm fan and its quiet. Also the front fan is also silent and 140 mm.

I can see your delema but I have to say in my opinion you cant go wrong with the CM Scout.
