Hey everyone, I have just ordered a storm scout along with a Gigabyte GTX 470 SoC and after looking around some more some reviews are saying that the card is 11" long.
I was wondering if anyone knew if the gtx 470 SoC will fit into the case or if I will have to Return it to Newegg?
thanks for the help. And the Storm Scout looks awesome, can't wait to receive it.
EDIT: its just barely longer than a gtx 480 from what I understand.

That looks like a good fit now. I just picked one of those docks up last week when they were on sale at the Egg, but I won't be able to locate mine where you did because my Scout is under the desk without the needed clearance.

Hey Guys, long time reader, first time poster.
I just got my Scout, and in my old case i have some cathodes i want to move over, but i would like to use the case's built in button, rather then a rocker switch like i had before.

Ive read the wiring diagram and think I understand how the switch works when you want to put in a few things, but all i want to do is hook up 1 inverter to it..

I was wondering if you could look at these before and after drawings and let me know if what im thinking would actualy work?


This is how my system is currently setup.


The PSU is connected to the molex from the switch to provide the power to the fans LEDs (I only have 1 LED fan connected). The second fan connector is currently not in use.

The Cathode kit, is now connected to the PSU directly, with the rocker switch breaking the 12v connection to turn it on and off.


What i am thinking is doing this...

I would remove the rocker switch from the cathode setup, and the molex connector completely, then just throw on a FAN connector to the end, and connect it directly to the extra LED wires i have for a second fan thats not in use.

Would that work?

I guess what im unclear on, is if the wires leading from the switch that would normaly connect to a LED fan, are carrying 12v or not? if they are, i think i could power the cathode from it with no problem since thats 12v...

Any help would be great, im really new to modding, and really just understand the basics of wiring..

NO, the power coming out of the switch is not 12v. I don't know what it is exactly, but I do know that when I tried it with my led stick it was dim by about half through the switch vs. hooked up to the 12v PSU source.

Ok good to know, thanks! There must be a voltage regulator somewhere after the switch to bring the voltage down from 12v then in order not to fry the LEDs on the fans.

How would one go about connecting it to the case switch asuming im back to the setup in my original drawing?

I did see and watch the video at the beginning of this thread for wiring that terminal in, but was just hoping there was an easier way to eliminate the rocker switch then do all that setup.

If the wires from the psu to that connector are yellow and black it's 12v. If they are red and black they are 5volt, which is what I think they are (that's about what LED's use).

If it uses the red and black wires (5v) cant you just rewire the molex so it uses the yellow and black (12v). Then wont it split the 12v in half between the cold caths and the led fan? Or does it not work like that?

No it doesn't work like that. Plus the switch might not be rated for 12V and burn up, but I have no idea what it is rated for.

Hello Everyone!! I am new to this forum and have been reading through the pages and it seems like the CMSSC is the tree of knowledge for the CM Scout , i have purchased a CM Scout because i couldn't resist the cool military/robust look it had. I got a few questions if any one can kindly answer for me or give me some pointers in the right direction, i mainly want to build a pretty decent gaming pc, I am going to buy the asus motherboard M4A89TD PRO 890FX SATA3 USB3 and phenom x6 (b.e), thinking about a H70 W/C, but i am unsure what Graphics Card to buy and PSU to be powerful enough (i may try to OC), i really want the best there is for gaming that the case can fit without modification? i have a budget £200/300 U.S. dollars for the Graphics Card and £60/$100 for the PSU.
Thanks everyone for reading
