so this type of wiring can't be too difficult when it's just re-sleeving then re-pinning. 3) it was wayyy cheaper then buying it from performance pcs, by about 100 bucks in my case. For color I went with blue(B-Magic) to be precise. Other than that, the next update will come thursday after my midterm when I get to finish up my dvd drive.
Nice work!!biggrin.gif

Thanks... I have an inspection next Wednesday. I will talk to them about it. Is there some specific reason I should tell them on why I need it replaced?

As long as it's a hard top 08, there is an issue with the timing chain tensioner failing and leaving to much slack in the chain, eventually resulting in engine damage. Tell them you have heard a rattle from the engine on cold starts.

Thanks! I will mention hearing the sound. Should I go ahead and tell them I heard about the timing chain tensioner failing or just leave it at the sound? smile.gif

Hey guys a have a question.

So I was planning on getting a FAN controller for my scout (prob the nzxt sentry 2) but I heard I won't be able to connect the LED fans to it due to the connection or power consumption or something like that. Is this true?

Also are their any other fan controllers you guys recommend?

no, just mention a rattling noise on cold start, there's a bulletin that tells them what to check, you should get a car program update too, depending on when it was last programmed.

depends on the fan. the fans that come in the scout have separate power connectors for the LEDs and the fan; so there won't be a greater draw than just a fan. however (and this is speculation on my part), i suppose an LED without a separate connector for power could draw enough power to damage a controller, but i've never heard of it. LED's draw really low amperage.

nope, got a better look at it today when the inspector came in (again). all 4 valves on that cylinder where still intact, just bent closed. according to the inspector (and i think this is total crap), while driving along the interstate, she ingested water into the #1 cylinder, hydro locking that cylinder and breaking the connecting rod. the rod punched through the block, and the next fire blew the piston into the crank. now, there is no water in the oil pan, intake manifold, or any other cylinder; and even though it has been raining for the last 4 days straight, the engine air filter managed to dry out while it was sitting in the back lot under the hood. the aftermarket warranty company advised her to contact her insurance company and start a claim.

NO.. If you are using Coolermaster R-4 stock fans that is not true. YOU WILL be able to use it and control all the fans in your rig with this. Just make sure you hook up the fans to the controller and not the LED Wires. That is the only problem that I could see.

Quick question and hoping someone can help, I'm about to start building the rig in my sig and was curious if anyone knew where to get a solid side panel?

The side panel with the window, I want a solid one because I'm planning to have a very custom window cut into it for the build as opposed to trying to work with the one in it. Preferably a flat one without the contours but either way.

I haven't purchased the case yet but I'm dead set on using it. If someone knows where I can get my hands on this, please let me know!! thumb.gif

Edit***

Am also up for any alternative side panels that fit with this one if they're solid. Don't mind slightly modding them to fit!

Anybody know if the mobo side panel is reversible to work on the other side if you rotate it???

I've seen some side panels on the us cm store. I don't know if they stock in eu. Well, the side panels are interchangeable. So you can fit the blank and customize it, while you mesh the other or a solid black perspex. That's what I'm planning to do with mine. Actually I joined the CM Casemod Contest, with the entry Guerilla Scout, but I don't know if I will finish it on time. My first mod ever, and first hand experience with tools and fabrication! It's fun. smile.gif
