Then you would need to completely remove the top plastic panel to get good enough access to the heads of the screws to get them out.
Thanks, yeah hopefully none of the top screws will be as bad as the front and back ones.

Now for my loss. I recently traded my gtx 570 for a 580 from another member on here. My gtx 570 was damaged and was sent back to me. I do not have pics, usps took them for me whent to try to pick it up. The box was cut open when i arrived, missing the $200 money order and it literally looked like someone jumped up and down on the box. the dam PCB for the gtx 570 was cracked almost in half. Here is the kicker, the wife sent it off and only insured it for $100. So looks like ill be out over $400 till i atleast get the replacement $200 money order refunded. Just started a new job and my first check is going to go to fix this whole BS ordeal. I am done with USPS. after the HAF 932 incident i should have listened to my gut and not used them anymore. But the whole $220 check they sent me made me give them one last chance. I am now officially screwed and sooo pissed right now. glad my hydrocodones are starting to kick in. gonna help me relax so i dont pop a dam artery.
Did somebody break a mirror?

Nice build man.Awesome job. Just a pointer. Take your time with cable management and you'll find a way to tighten and hide the cables a bit more
All in all, a fine looking scout!

You are right, more cable management is needed. I had a hard time with CPU 12V cable, it's a little short.

Hey guys, before I buy all my major parts, I am actually planning on routing all of my wires, installing the HDD and optical drives before hand to simplify things. But I was wondering what you all thought of my cooling setup I am considering. First I am going to reuse my 2 GentleTyphoon Ap 13's on the side window exhausting heat off of the video card. Then I plan on replacing the front 140mm fan with one of these (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-157-_-Product) I plan on mounting a second one right above it so I should have plenty of cool air being pulled in through the front. The top I plan on leaving in its normal exhaust orientation. On the rear I will have my corsair H50 mounted with this slim fan(http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185060). I plan on having the slim on the left of the rad so its pushing cold air through. As for the lighting I'll be losing, I'll probably just buy a cathode for 10 bucks and mount it along the top where it'll be hidden.

Thoughts, suggestions?
Your choice for the 140mm fan looks fine, but the fan you have in mind for the H50 is completely wrong. You need good static pressure to push air through a radiator. This means large blades. Imagine this, fill your bathtub up and then using two fingers run them through the water. You'll end up moving some water. Now use your whole hand with your hand flat like a paddle and run it through the water. Using the same muscle energy as before in your arm, you'll move a ton more water. That's what you want in a radiator fan. Also it has been determined many times in this thread that pulling air out of the case through the H50 is far superior to pushing it in.

Looks great! Good job! I just finished a similar build using the ASUS Sabertooth

One helpful hint with your 8-pin CPU cable:
  1. Run it tight behind the PSU, out the back (you may have to pull the PSU out a bit)
  2. Run it up and over the top of / behind the motherboard (through the MB cutout)
I will try and post a pic of how I have mine run later this evening as I still have lots to do with cable management.

Hello fellow scouts, I just had a quick question; this may seem like a dumb question but, I'm considering upgrading to a Corsair H60, would I have any clearance issues with the rad and the top mounted 140 fan? Thanks in Advance.
