Scout Maintenance Time!! biggrin.gif

So, I got my Tax Return, and I've been researching some upgrades for my Scout. Specifically, I am looking into doing a full custom Water Cooling Loop on my CPU, and maybe adding my GPU into it...

But, part of my research involved deciding where to mount a new Rad, as I have always believed that a Water Cooled Scout would be at its best, if the Rad and Fans were mounted in the front, as opposed to the back!

So, I pulled out my H50 Rad and its fans, and reinstalled them into the front 5.25 bays; just to see how it might or might not improve CPU Temps...

So first a "before" shot... which can also be seen in mt Sig...

I originally as some of you might recall, had my H50 Rad mounted on the Rear with a couple R4's and homemade shrouds, in a push/pull...

Well, as I said, I always felt that it would probably work better with the Rad mounted in the front 5.25 bays... so, tonight, I pulled my Scout apart, and the following is the end result! Oh an I apologize these Pics are a little more fuzzy, I think my old CoolPix camera is starting to go bad on me; I've had it for years... might be time for something a little newer and better!

Four Black Zip Ties snaked around the front Rad Fan, and woven into the Scouts Frame are holding it all in place rather nicely... I have, an R4 pulling intake, going into one of my homemade shrouds, then into the Radiator... then immediately pulled out the other end by another R4 with no shroud.

I took one of my spare R4's and remounted it on the rear as seen in the first "after" pic above, and pulled the top "blow hole" fan out, cleaned it out, then remounted it, making sure it was actually running as exhaust...

I have so far, seen about an 8c drop in my CPU temp while idling on just the Windows Desktop and a 4c drop during moderate load..

For the record, as stated above I did this as part of my personal research into the viability of installing a full custom Water loop. I'm still researching parts for the loop at this point, but this little experiment has shown me how I can install a better quality Rad into the 5.25 bays, shows me exactly how much room I have to play with in there for a custom loop!

I would have to say No it will not. The Extended ATX is not recommended for the Storm Scout Case.

Can't get my screwdriver at the right angle because of the handle! Need either a screw driver with a long reach or another way to fasten the thing on.

End Rant.

Should I get a fan filter for this? Im also going to swap the stock fan with a blue R4.

I ordered a pair of [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0036WTDHK"]these[/ame] to change my side fan filters. The ones I got from ebay isnt cutting it.

I had to cut off part of the bottom side fan grill because it was pushing against my AX750.

I ordered my mobo from Directron and they charged me three times!! ARG!!
