You can put a 120mm (or maybe even a 140mm) fan into the drive bays.

I did some cutting on my Scout today I took out the rear metal mesh to get better air-flow for my exhaust H50, and hopefully quiet down my fans a little bit. Noise did go down a tiny bit, and hopefully air flows better. And I also moved the blue cold cathode to the top part of the case (since it was too bright where it was before) like you guys recommended and it looks a lot better.

The gigabyte gtx570 oc windforce editions board is only 9.5 inches long but the windforce cooler is 11 inches, here is some pics of my hacking, slightly rushed job, but will clean it up in a few wks when I add an SSD and another storage drive, only problem when I cut into the metal was that the hdd cage now has a little bit of play so I might zip tie it from the back to the other side so that the slide mounts on the hdd's dont slip out. also FYI's I have done the modded clear side panel and Red cold cathodes and Red CM LED Fan on the hyper 212 cooler. The red line is to show where I had to cut.

That's a good solution, but you better get that metal dust out of there. I can only imagine the trouble that would cause.

This is a prime example of if want something to go in this case there's nothing to stop you if you have the courage to cut it. Remember my motto Scouts, CUT THAT SCOUT!!

Get that oxide dust out!
If you clean up the edges,your noise level should drop too.

Yeah thanks, Ive since given the case a good clean out, so no residual metal filings or dust left in the case. Beside the "normal dust bunnies" lol. Was a bonus that I got the Windforce OC edition as I only ordered the Reference GTX 570 ( because I knew it would fit!!) so I was was happy and annoyed when I received the OC edition but HAVING to cut my case to make it fit was not part of the plan.
