Thanks! I agree having my PC lit up with flames because of a CC inverter would not impress me!

the lighting effect would look nice if the money or the machine didnt matter at all, which lets face it, isnt a reality lol!

i think at least my older tubes and their inverter are fine, i mean i've been using the light controller a LOT because it looks too cool, i think the amount of flashing i've had the inverter make the tubes do speaks for itself lol, the new set i bought at the end of the week should be just as good

an afterthought here though, any of us with cathodes, and i dont just mean scouts here, should be turning those things off if they're going to leave the machine on overnight or any situation where you'd be leaving the machine powered without you sat at it for long periods, really for 99% of people that kinda goes without saying, but some people do need to know that its not a good idea to leave them on for really long periods of time

I apologize if this has been covered in the thread already, but I couldn't find anything when searching.

A long time ago, I tripped over and accidentally pulled on my headphone cord while it was plugged into my Storm Scout and I think it caused some minor damage to the headphone jack. My headphones are only recognized if I pull slightly downward on the headphone connector. If I let go for one second, it says the headphones are not plugged in.

Obviously I can't stand to hold my headphone connector in place while using the computer, is it feasible to take apart the case and repair it myself? Or would CoolerMaster send me a replacement front I/O panel?

i'd say its worth asking them in an email first, they're probably going to want cash for it, i mean it could just be that you need to solder it back in, cant hurt to look at it while you wait for them to reply

Thanks for your quick reply.

Sure, I wouldn't mind paying for it, especially since my own clumsiness caused it lol. I was just wondering if anyone had any experiences with or instructions to take off the top of the case and access the front I/O panel. I'd much rather do a quick solder job if that's all it needs lol.

have a dig through the links on the first page of this thread, its where i found out how to get access to the io panel when i had a short causing my machine to reboot

EDIT: Saved you some time, here's how to remove the top and get access to the IO panel

Its just screws really, i have taken mine apart fully. Its real easy. If you need any help don't hesitate to ask.

On anther note, guess what i just bought!!

An MSI 6870 Twin Frozr II OC!!!!!!! Got it for £150 inc postage. The scout is going to be happy on Wednesday when it gets a clean and a new gfx card.

Very nice... I just bought me Gigabytes Radeon HD 6850. Were I live I can't really get much of a choice out here. I'd have to order over-sea's! Then I'm just paying way to much.. I'm still waiting on it, won't get it for another day or two..
