I bought a rad, a reservoir, apogee water block, and a bunch of 1/2" tubing, and got it all running on the bench just great. Threw in all my PC ice, and let it un-foam over night.

Woke up this morning on a my nice day off from work, and started to install everything into my scout. Install went great! Everything fit as I was hoping and mounting was a breeze..

Loaded up windows for a quick yest, excited to find out how much better it would be then the h70.

Fired up RealTemp, CPUIDZ, and Prime95..... WHAM... Realtemp shot up to 97c!!!

Well, this isnt what i was hoping... I know there was some air in the rad, and still a little foam in the lines from being moved around, but 20c more then my h70??!?

So, off everything came. Out of the case, and onto the bench, for some more testing.

As i was taking off the CPU waterblock.. I noticed it...

The plastic protective film still covering the shiny copper underside, smeared with thermal paste

DOH!!

Now before i re-mount everything, i think im just going to wait for the 3/8" tubing to get here in the mail, rather then the 1/2" i currently have.. then saddle up for mount #2!
OMG
Dude, Foreal??
LOL, I can see that happen
Did ya laugh

I mean...this style:

I dont know how its called in English
That would be Charcoal Satin color. Any dark military color will look good on a Scout but Dark Blue or light Green Is very off limits.. I have seen it and it doesnt turn out.

But that Charcoal Satin would look Awesome.. just clean your case with alcohol the a damp cloth with water after the alcohol has dried. Then Spray it with Self Etching primer and then Charcoal color and then a Satin Clear coat.

You never know, you might end up with a 945
Don't get the 555. That one was a real Dually. No unlocking of anything.. the 550s were the Quads in sheep's clothing.. But AMD is clearing their stock of the Old Phenom II s and making Room for the BullDozer and the AM3+ board.. That is what I have been waiting a year and a half for.

I'm not a gamer so I won't be upgrading to any high end graphics cards, but in a year or so I might be moving away from S775 to something newer.

Not looking for recommendations for other more expensive PSU's, only looking for any good/bad on this one or something at the same price. I simply can't afford one of the nice Seasonics, Corsair's, etc. at the moment. Just saw this one on sale.
I have bought several Rosewill Item and Have been pleasantly surprised with the out come.. They are good devises and a great bang for the buck. I would go for it.

My temps did ok though, 15 minute load test my cpu never went over 34c with a ambient of 25c, at idle it drops back down to 29c, fans are the Cooler Master Blade Master @1850 rpm.
I also come up with a prototype for a HDD cover up, clear acrylic with some aluminum mesh behind it I need to come up with some kind of blue light behind it to cause a blue glow, the mesh I used isn’t the mesh I am going with, it’s all Home Depot had though.
Also if anyone is interested I have the wind tunnel mod done on my Lian Li PC-50R, I also had some acrylic left over from making the HDD cover so I used a bit of it to make a lower panel on the PC-50R to hide wires. The 2 top fans and the 2 front fans I have plugged into the Lian Li fan switch that mounts at the top behind the front cover, 3 speeds, I think for this case I will be using the Noctua NH-D14 cooler.
Looks great,
Awesome pics, Great powder coating, blue fan blue accents,clean build!!

I like the red on the Lian Li, those wind tunnels are sick! Love what you did with the extra carbon fiber on the mobo tray.
What mobo and cpu for the Lian Li?

you can NEVER be ahead of the new stuff coming out. Remember. You bought what you had and it works and it looks good and it games great. Dont worry about the new stuff. It will be overpriced and be Version 1 so you are in the best place to be. At the caboose of the tech. instead of the Front. if it hits anything.. You won't feel a thing. I love your case and your stuff. I Still have a 5770 crossfire with Version 1 Phenom II and have a board that was so nice that it is ancient now and still taking all the new stuff. Be happy with what you have. And then do like the rest of us. Buy something else in the summer.. Your stuff will last for years.

Thanks for the 'heads up'

Well....there's always this. With an upgrade to X6 or Bulldozer in the future
The 550's are out of stock. Whats with the purple box? Not a BE any more?

So the Phenom II's are for the dinos now?
