does anyone else here dislike the layout of the side panel window? i dont necesarily dislike the design but i dont like where the fan mounting points are. Im fine using the lower one only but i wish there wasnt vent slits up top so i could see the hardware better. Ive tried my luck at polycarbonate but i just suck at it and dont have the resources to keep trying to get it perfect.

Any one here wanna make me a custom window i can just pop in to replace the stock one.

Hey guys, first post here. Ive actually owned the scout for a while now, just found this thread while I was researching stuff for my upgrade.

Here is with the old set up



and new (sorry just a quick cell pic i all i have atm)




Also, question. The side fans make the terrible noise we all know of, im assuming its from the shape of the vents. I know alot of people are just replacing the window. Has anyone found a solution that still keeps those fans? I was thinking maybe cutting the "vents" out and putting in metal guards?

Thanks all, amazing thread too!

Nah you're right. The h70 pump is about half the size of the h50 pump.

Hi, welcome to the thread. If you'd like to join us go to page 1 and fill out the survey at the bottom of post 1. Once you get done with that, grab the club php and drop in your sig line.

As for your question, yes, you're right. The noise is terrible. Most of us deal with it or change out the window. I prefer to change out the window so I can see the "busty innards" of my sytem and I prefer others to do the same so I can see their goods, but if you want to keep the fans without the noise, you're on the right track with your idea.

I hate the vents my self, that is why I made a new window. What were you using to make cuts with? I used a jigsaw with an acrylic blade. Make sure you tape the entire sheet, it can help keep it from cracking. The most important part is to go slow and keep the blade going, it took me about 10-15 mins to cut mine. Have a friend help hold it down on a table to keep it from bouncing. If you need to stop and adjust, back up and pull the blade out while it is still going. Here is a link to some acrylic blades.

That should work, just take it very slow when cutting, the stock window doesn't seem very stong to me. The other route would be to make a new window, not very hard if you have the right tools.
