Okay.. I have finally finished my Office Renovation
From November. Darn this was a tough redo.

First I had this Flex light that I bought at the Thrift
Store for $3.98. I love it for working on my Computer
and others that people bring me.

Okay..So the Desk was really big. It used to be
In a bankers office before they donated it to
the Thrifts Store. It was $85.00 The 6 inch shelf
above it Is cut from the back of that same desk.
I had to mod the desk to get it through my door of
my house. There is also 3- 3 inch holes in the back
for routing cables.. Wire Management..

I know the Helicopters.. My gag Christmas present
Turned into my new play toy. The one on the left
was broken during a party so no more sharing,
The red one I got on new-egg and I love it. If I can
ever learn to fly them..

And the CM STACKER ENIGMA EDITION oh wait
I forgot my Guns..
CIMG1558.JPG

And What CMSSC picture would be complete
without the obligatory GUN SHOT. 30-30
Winchester with my STUN GUN. It kind
of works like Mr. SPOCK's neck Pinch.

I use to be into RC helis. Gets expensive replacing parts. Very entertaining hobby maybe ill have to get back into it but It'd cost me $500 at least for the next step up and i broke the speed control for my tail rotor on this one. This is the one i learned with http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products...rodID=EFLH1200 but it is very dated now.

Sweet! We don neeed no stinking Office-Max!

My desk is a length of plywood on two old hi-fi living-room speakers.With an old milk crate and a piece of particle board to sit my CRT on My old desk was destroyed during my last move. I keep meaning to get something better but I don't like the cheapy Wal-Mart/Target crap at my price range.

I think you can buy replacement parts for those little R/C choppers.

I'd say that's a fine swawp. I didn't like the results of a rear intake. For starters, my 580 exhausts out the back (naturually), so my H50 at the time was sucking in all that hot air. Now I have my H70 mounted in the front drive bays with two ultra kaze 3000's. Some may complain about the heat dumping into the case. But in my scenario, the 2600K doesn't produce much heat at all. Even overclocked my load temps are in the high 50's and low 60's. On otp of that, i haven't noticed any motherboard/gpu/etc temps getting out of hand as a result of my h70 placement. Some thoughts to ponder...
I would agree.

MY, H50, did not preform very well in my Scout while running as a Rear Intake while sitting close to a wall, even with a Window nearby that I could open for air.

The Fans, on the rear that ran as the intake for the H50, sucked too much of the rear vented heat that rose up from my HD 5850.

I would imagine that an HD 6970 would likely put out a bit more heat then a 5850; and as we all know, heat rises. With that heat venting out the rear, and then putting Intake Fans directly above that; sure even you got it sitting next to that A/C unit, you're still going to be sucking in at least some of that hot air.

In fact, I would bet, that the A/C unit might even make it worse cause sure it could be blowing out cooler air, but the air flow direction would also be pushing the heated 6970 exhaust into the H50 intake fans.

That is, presuming you run that A/C unit as an A/C blowing into the room.

Set it on reverse to exhaust air out the window and that might be a different story regarding the 6970's exhaust.

However, in that case, your H50 is now competing for suction from a more powerful window mounted fan.

Now, when I took my H50 out, and reversed the Fans to run as a rear exhaust, I saw better performance and my CPU temps did drop almost 5 degrees; and I believe that if I either (a) move the H50's radiator into the front 5.25 bays and run as intake through the front, venting through the case to the rear... or (b) install a powerful intake fan in those 5.25 bays pushing air directly into the rear mounted H50... then I believe I will see an even further increase in performance and drop in Temps.

Right now, I'm leaning more towards option (b)...

Thats whats so awesome about this Storm Scout though.

Its big enough for the ass-kicking video cards, yet small enough for excellent management of the Corsair Hydro systems!

Wow.. Thanks for the Tip.. I love this set up.. this is the next one that I am going for.

Exxxxcellent commentary on cooling and not just guess work here.. This is based on personal experience. Rep Up.. My Man..
