Can I join?

I thought the cable management was going to be worse.

You can add GTX 570 to the list of cards that fits, and nicely too.

The motherboard 8 pin is a tight fit but it does work

Fits great in my corner

and looks good with the lights off

Anyone here have an Asus Sabertooth P67 in their Scout?

I'm thinking of picking the mobo up soon, but I want to make sure that it'll fit. I heard the little cover over the the ports in the back might get in the way of the 120mm fan at the rear.

Hi, I am building my first Storm Scout PC and would like some input on the components that I want to use in it.

Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated!

Note: I have only already ordered the CPU and MB (as of today) all else will be bought as I get paid from work, bi-monthly. Somethings are bought in Newegg Combo Deals and come together, saving me 2 weeks for each, they are the CPU and MB in one combo and Case and PSU in another Combo lastly RAM and Thermal paste being bought together (No Combo Deal on that one though)

The following is listed in the order that I will be purchasing it in.

1. CPU and MB (Combo @ Newegg) $401.99 (Bought this today) smile.gif

COMBO LINK -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.632315

CPU -- AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6x

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849


MB -- ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131644


2. Case and PSU (Combo @ Newegg) $159.98
- 30.00 Rebate
129.98 Total

COMBO LINK -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.634445

Case -- COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119196

PSU -- COOLER MASTER GX Series RS750-ACAAE3-US 750W

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171053


3. RAM and Thermal Grease $170.00

RAM -- Patriot Viper Xtreme 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-220-535&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=2#scrollFullInfo

This RAM setup scored in the top 3 percent of the world in a pitstop scan!



Thermal Compound -- Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - OEM

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835100007&cm_re=thermal_compound-_-35-100-007-_-Product


4. SSD -- $175.00

REFRENCE FOR THIS SSD -- (It's 3rd from the top) http://www.fastestssd.com/featured/ssd-rankings-the-fastest-solid-state-drives/

SSD -- Corsair Performance 3 Series CSSD-P364GB2-BRKT 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233153


5. HDD -- 2 TB HD 6gbts/sec ?? (Reliable without breaking the bank).


6. CPU COOLER -- ??? (Hopefully one that goes with the red and black theme I have going).

I LOVE the way this looks and want it as a first choice, but don't know if I will be able to OC with it well or not?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106142&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-CPU+Cooling-_-Thermaltake-_-35106142

This is my 2nd choice if the first does not work well, I know it will fit the storm scout, but not if it will work in east to west configuration with this MB, which I want it to be able too. Does Anyone know here?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=35-103-089&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=8#scrollFullInfo

7. 2nd GPU for CrossFire (I Already have one!!) smile.gif $150.00

This is the best version of the 5770.

GPU -- MSI R5770 Hawk Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127490


So if anyone here can be of any help such as things I have over looked, compatibility issues, better prices somewhere else, better components than the ones I have chosen in the same price range (I am doing this on an very tight budget, please remember!) or just any thoughts you have, I will be very grateful to hear them!!! THX!!!!! ♥♥♥♥

I see you are using the v6gt, I also am wanting to buy one those for my Storm Scout, Do you think it would be possiable to mod the fan shroud so that you could use the blocked RAM slot???

BTW I am using the Asus Crosshair Formula IV MB

Just pics please.wink.gifrolleyes.gifbiggrin.gif

More pictures it is!
