Also something to consider is that the side panel is slanted so it will blow a tad to the rear and not square onto the motherboard.

@B NEGATIVE, will a dust filter help? Or an old panythose pulled over it tongue.gif

With such a weak fan? probably not....
Try it with the side off and temp mounting for a while and see? Experiment with it,if it works i will do it also...
Im also doubtful about interference from the motor so close to the socket.

I rate the ideal thing to do would be to mount it onto the motherboard tray, so that it sucks air from inside the case, rather than pulling dirty air from outside. That is if there is enough space for the fan to be positioned in that way

I realize B NEGATIVE has done something similar but, if things work out, I will keep all the parts of the handle, not have to cut into the front portion of the scout, and keep the hard drive cage, all while watercooling this bad boy. I noticed B NEGATIVE and I were working on the 360 rad mod at the same time, looks like he was more on top of things redface.gif. His is looking good by the way, check it out if you havent, its like ten pages back! Any suggestions from the Scout masters would be appreciated thumb.gif Nice club by the way:)

A few things to consider. The clearance from the top of the case to the ram sockets is about 32mm,measure your clearance before your rad purchase.
You may struggle to get pump/res side by side on the floor of the case and in the bays. Good work tho,what WC kit you going for?

I remmoved the side pannel and i placed a domestic fan over it, it helps me a lot to keeps temps stable while the cpu is under stress. i also tried it once with a 80mm fan. the temp readings were very stable.

I think ill work on some kind of mod in order to be able to place a regular 120mm fan directly on the side pannel without affect the external aesthetics of the case. In that way will be easier to open or close and also the motor will not be that close to the mobo.

Its true... it will blow dust in, but i think fresh air is better. by using a normal 120mm fan i can put a dust filter.

Im still checking all options. Just thinking about cutting the side pannel makes me nervous... hahaha is my baby... biggrin.gif

Let me know if it works... but i think there is not enough room... specially in my case, i have a CM V8 and that part that holds it from the back is taking some space already. Not that much, but for this every millimeter is required.

The Asus CF is the only Red/Black Mobo you'll find though, and it rocks socks.

Funnily enough, that's my planned next upgrade at the end of the Summer (or at least around the time BD is released, before BF3), Red/Black Sleeving and the theme.
I really wanted to stay with MSI, but their not-really-UEFI BIOS put me off, Blue and Black theme (sorta) has looked really cool aswell. (giving my brother my Blue Fans, haha)

The more I see it, the more I dig castors on it, shame they're not a bit thicker/chunkier, a simple spray of black (or red?) on the exposed steel would change them nicely though, maybe matt black with red wheels?

Nice, tidy build there though mate. thumbsupsmiley.png

yeah i know going for the Asus CF seems abit stupid considering BD is just around the corner but i am not sure i can afford BD currently frown.gif

besides the Asus CF has made me all moist ever since it was first released redface.gif i will be upgrading at the end of summer so my mind could wonder in different directions until then.

GO CASTORS they ROCK thumb.gif i tried looking for some red and black ones before but they were either huge and would make my case look like some sort of demented monster truck or where fixed plate jobbies which would not turn and would suck. so i might end up painting these ones.
(grabs pen and adds it to the list)
