I figured it would be a quick switch but am just curious if anyone actually has the item and could confirm.

Its not too hard, a few screws and some tabs. The tabs are like the ones that hold the window on your case, just push the center out and it comes off.

Upgrades for the Scout!

Some of new parts arrived today, courtesy of our own member Telnets!

Telnets sold me some of his old parts from his custom Water Loop.

Swiftech Apogee XT Extreme Preformance CPU Block (NOT Rev 2)
XSPC Acrylic Tank Reservoir for Laing D5 WITH MCP655 w/speed controller
XSPC RX120 Radiator

He also threw in about 8 barbs and a Temp sensor device.

All for $230 shipped.

Buy it all new, parts plus barbs and temp sensor probably would have been close to 265 - 275...

I still have to order a Fan Controller, and some tubing; and possibly the optional AMD Mounting Kit for the Apogee, as it does not come with the AMD parts as stock.

I also still have a separate GPU Block on the way for my 5850, try and extend its life for another year until I can get a 69xx or better.

The parts from Telnets are sitting under my desk here at work at the moment, and they're obviously not being installed right away; but I am gonna try and take some Pics of them either tonight or over this weekend! biggrin.gif

The RX120 Radiator is a bit thicker then I anticipated even though I, DID, take measurements with a tape measure and all that, so I knew it was going to be a thick Rad. But now holding it in my hold, I find it quite impressive. I am fairly positive that I can pull off my plan of installing it into the Scouts front 5.25 bays with THREE fans creating a sort of wind tunnel effect...

Basically, the Rad, and two fans in a push/pull configuration will be mounted towards the rear of the 5.25 bays, obviously sticking out the rear.

In the very front, of the 5.25 bays, almost right up against the front mesh, is going to be a third fan, pulling as the primary air Intake, and pushing all that air directly through the 5.25 bays, through perhaps a 2 - 2 1/2 inch gap before it hits the intake fan on the Radiator.

But for now, I have to sit back and wait for Gentle Typhoon AP-15's to start showing up in stock again, or just suck it up and go order some AP-29's or AP-30's after I get this months expenses paid off! biggrin.gif

I will probably start off using my CM R4's until I can get some GT's biggrin.gif

Attention!!!
Most Beautiful Scout Contest Winners

I'd like to thank all the participants of my contest and General Enigma for helping me judge the excellent entries. It was tough.

The criteria we used to judge these fine builds were;


First, innovative thought behind the layout of the intenal and external mods.

Second, and to me, the most important: cleanliness of the build. How the wiring looks, how the color scheme complements the hardware, etc...

Third, the photos and how they compliment or show off the build.

So with that in mind and without any more delay the winners are:


1st place - GoodInk's Wicked Awesome Build

http://www.overclock.net/12554256-post18664.html

2nd place - General kev_b's silent but deadly

http://i960.photobucket.com/albums/ae85/jsongyver/kev_bentry.jpg

3rd place - General Rogue1266's RogueSpear
http://www.overclock.net/picture.php?albumid=2465&pictureid=14814

All three of these builds exemplified what a beautiful design is. Congratulations to the winners. PM me with full shipping addresses and I'll get the shipping estimates out to guys for your prizes.

you're wrong and im female thankyou, i didnt make any earlier posts i certainly didnt have my reset switch on the wrong way around, the usb pcb was contacting the top of the case underneath the front panel, i simply insulated the underneath of the top panel and i insulated the cables in the cable brace at the top of the case for good measure. check my post count before you say things like that please.. smile.gif

its all good, i was amazed when i noticed the pcb was contacting underneath though, i was thinking it was a cable that had gotten its sleeving sliced open, but it wasnt biggrin.gif

p.s i learnt a very long time ago how to wire a front panel up on a case, its not hard once you remember the orientation of the - and + wink.gif

I don't know what to say. With all the great Scouts we have here I didn't think I was going to win. I'm just speechless. Thank you both for this great honor.

Edit
I won! Now that I've had time to let it sink in, I would like thank everyone in the CMSSC for the inspiring me to take my build as far as I have. This is the first time I did any real modding to a case. I would like to give a special thanks to Striker36, he kept pushing me to do the front rad mod so thanks Striker! I will say that this build is about 90% done, as may of you know I'm in the AF and stationed down at Soto Cano AB, Honduras dieing from the heat right now. Once I get back to the US and to my tools I'll be finishing it up. Things left to do, are finish all my cuts up with a file, cover the side of the 5.25" bays, I'm thinking sleeved cables cut to size would be nice, and I'm looking in to installing a bigNG. For those that don't know what that is, think of it as a temperature controlling PC for your PC.
