This just started, and if it means anything...recently i've noticed my exhaust fan on the top isn't running either.
You have a serious grounding issue or the fan power is shorting to the case. I would start all over again. Pull everything out. Everything including the fans. TEst each fan if possible or look for shorts and then reinstall everything very carefully. Check you mounting points for your mobo too. Make sure you have all those stubs sticking up in the right place. I killed a board one time just assuming that the stud would match up. one didnt and boom.

Hey everyone. I'm thinking of getting three Yate Loon 120mm D12SL-12 Red LED. Two for the front intakes and one for the rear exhaust.



For the rear top exhaust I was thinking of getting a Yate Loon 120mm D12SL-12 Non LED



I plan on connecting them all to a terminal block. Negating the extra intake fan, can anyone tell me if I would notice a performance degrade at all from the stock fans? I'm looking more to quiet the computer as I don't plan to overclock so I was thinking that getting the low speeds would be best, but I don't want to have less airflow than stock. Any thoughts? Should I get the medium speeds? I know that everyone recommends R4's but this seams like to good of a deal to pass up.

I think that you will be louder but the way it sounds you will have a cooler unit and you can compensate red lighting with red 4 inch Cold cathode tube.

Yeah I know how you feel...I've got a couple of SLI boards, and I chose to upgrade but there wasn't any decent SLI boards, so I went with a Crossfire board...and sold my GTX260's. I'll have to wait a while before I'll get some ATI Cards to go in the board and I'm done with spending unnecessary money.

I have to wait and see what happens, hopefully the 5800 series will drop in price

Yeah they were okay, I was kinda peeved because I bought them not to long ago (I think about 7 months and paid $400 each, and now they're only worth about $200)

I think they would of fitted into the Scout, didn't try them...they were in the HAF.

I took some pics on friday...

The Phenom finally arrived and a fan?? Hmmmm, where the rest? grrr





I cut out some perspex strips to go behind the front mesh bezels, mmmm gonna be nice glowiness



My first attempt at engraving the CM Storm Logo onto a piece of perspex...I still got a lottttttttttttt to go with it before I'll be happy...I'll take my time though, not really in a rush. (I did speak to a couple of friends, and they have connections with laser cutting and engraving...so I might have that organised soon, woops)





A couple of more shots of the Scout with the new side window





I did a little cable management this morning, I still have a bit to do, will do that sometime soon, I think.





^ I want that all to be invisible, well I don't want to see any of the psu's cables...I can't do tooooo much about the satas and mobo cables though
