Anyone know if you have to mod anything to get that to work, or are most 4/8-pin power cords generally not long enough? It seems like you could fit it through the big CPU hole, but i just want to make sure. I'm really close to buying this case, but I want to make sure that ALL of my cables can be routed easily. Thanks!

EDIT: Also, forgot to ask if anyone has put in a TRUE. Just want to make sure it'll fit before I buy
I went thru the cpu hole, it was not a problem and with the psu I have it's plenty long enough, the only mod I made was the hole that the front usb wires pass thru, I had to open it up a bit so I could run the 24 pin on the back side. I have mine torn apart right now, this week end I'm going for the AMD 940 BE and the Megahalems cooler.
I think you are going to like this case seven9st surfer.

thanks for the reply! not sure what you mean about the mod though. you had to open up a hole to fit the 24-pin behind the mobo?

EDIT: nevermind, i see what you're talking about with the hole! how did you do it? hole saw or dremmel or what?

DOUBLE EDIT: sorry, random question. how is the acrylic window attached? is it screws like the Antec 900? reason I ask is because I'm not a huge fan of the slits cut in it, and I don't plan on installing any fans there, so I was hoping to just replace the acrylic with a clean piece. any info? thanks!

The side window is held on by black plastic rivets.. If you plan to replace the window I would first take off the window and then use it as a template. But I would put some window tint on it from the local wal mart or Auto Zone. Or if your really resourceful get some Gold tint. That would look great.

Comment. I saw your work seven9st surfer and I am VERY Impressed. What you did with that Antec 900 was really amazing. Nice Prep. But I tell you. You will love this case. and I dont think that you will have any wire managment issues. BTW. Loved the Triple Monitor Thread. Really Imaginative. You are most welcome aboard. Please notify us when you get your Scout.

I just used a nibbler that I got at micro center.

Thanks for the info, and I never thought of doing the tint thing, I'll definitely look into doing that.

And thanks for the kind words! I was really happy with the 900 mod thing until it all came together at the end. The Plasti-Dip really tended to peel, especially the HDD bays. Also, there really wasn't enough room behind the mobo tray to really do a good routing job.

I still love the triple-monitor setup tho, and I just recently put in a backlight.

I have a Nibbler but I have never tried it out before. Is it easy to work with and does it cut clean? If you can get me some pictures of the job after the nibbler I would be most Greatful.

Me too. I got some sleeving coming in and I'm gonna take my rig apart again for that so it'd be nice to see how clean it cuts/punches/nibbles.

I am interested as well. I bought one when I first started Modding but I just used my Dremel because it was faster but it seems that the nibbler would be a more precision device than the Dremel. But I can't wait to see. Please take some shots for me and let us all know what you think of the Nibbler tool.

Hey everyone! I'm gonna be getting my Scout pretty soon and I have a couple questions. First off, big111 has his rig pictures up on page 14 and it looks like he has 2 R4 fans installed on the side panel with the V8 installed as well. According to CM this isn't possible with a cooler this size...either those are skinny 25x25x12 fans that look like R4s or hes playing mind tricks on me :/ Could someone with a V8 give me the clearance from the side panel on an i7 system? Also, how good (CFM, dB) and bright are the R4 fans compared to the stock ones? They're rated at 90 CFM / 19 dB but that seems sketchy to me...I would be willing to sacrifice turning the LEDs off for much better airflow if the R4s make a difference. Lastly, could anyone recommend a good cold cathode combination? I wanted to make the main chassis area red and put green cathodes behind the mobo tray to accent behind the HDD bay and through the mobo tray holes...that'd look so tight! I don't think I'll benefit from UV cathodes because I have no UV reacting parts. Here's the innerds I'm getting as well, prices courtesy of Newegg of course...what do you guys think?

-CM Scout case (as if it weren't obvious LOL) - $100
-WD Caviar Black 1TB - $100
-EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 AR SLI'ed with my current EVGA 260 192MB SSC Edition) - $160
-OCZ Platinum 6GB Triple Channel DDR3 1600 7-7-7-24 - $100
-Foxconn BloodRage mobo (it only has 3 dimms but great black/red theme to match the rest of the system)
-i7 920 - $280
-BFG ES-800w PSU that I already own - $FREE
-Vista Ultimate 64bit - $190 (comes with free 7 upgrade!)
-Cooler Master V8 - $60
-Cooler Master R4 120mm fans---2 (or 1) for side panel depending on CPU cooler clearance, one for my V8 cooler replacement, and one for exaust - $36
-Scythe Kaze Maru 140mm fans---1 intake and 1 for top - $24
-----$1040 total, without shipping. Not bad!-----

The LEDs are about the same brightness or may be a little brighter. They're really quiet and they do move a lot of air. I don't think they're 19 dBa. I'm pretty sure they're 23 dBa at max RPM(2000)Lastly, could anyone recommend a good cold cathode combination?

-CM Scout case (as if it weren't obvious LOL) - $100
-WD Caviar Black 1TB - $100
-EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 AR SLI'ed with my current EVGA 260 192MB SSC Edition) - $160 I'm not sure if SLI will work but if it does, they'll both clock to the same clocks of the lower clock ones

-Foxconn BloodRage mobo (it only has 3 dimms but great black/red theme to match the rest of the system)

-BFG ES-800w PSU that I already own - $FREE
-Vista Ultimate 64bit - $190 (comes with free 7 upgrade!)great choice!
-Cooler Master V8 - $60Lot of people love this but for 15 bucks less you can get a better cooler (The Mugen 2). I do understand that lot of people go for V8s for their looks and their good performance so if it's that combo, you're fine.
