i went with a Fractal Design Arc Mini. It's a mATX case, but it's about the size of the scout. It will support a 240mm radiator and fans at the top, while it's bigger brother the Arc Midi will support a 280mm or a 360mm. Here's a shot of it:



I plan on modding my Coolit Vantage to have a 240mm radiator, and moutn it on the top. I ordered it about an hour after newegg had it listed, been in contact with Fractal Design sales in Europe about when it would be available. I'll be doing some mods perform I swap all the new parts over, so you'll get a chance to see it shortly... i hope... uugh... still not marked as shipped from newegg.

Oh I'm really liking the design of that. Definitely seems like it has a lot of options and much more room to mods than the Scout which requires a lot of cutting. Can't wait to see what you come up with

Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well. It's been a while, and I just recently finished my new build. For the case on this one I went with a Lian Li, and I have to say I'm very impressed with the build quality in comparison to coolermaster products I've had in the past. Only upgrade I'll be looking to do in the near future will be to add a 1/2 tb hdd on top of the measly 500gb I started with.

I'll do my best to borrow my dad's camera this weekend to get some pics. For the specs, they are in my sig atm.

EDIT: I have one mediocre cell phone pic

blurry ass pic of my new pc by Raspinudo, on Flickr

I was so low on funds while I was finishing it up, I used my old Gameshark keyboard I got like 10 years ago haha. The mouse and monitor were donated by my brother who had them lying around.

Hey folks, this is my first post here so go easy on me.
I have just set my CM scout up and all is running well i have a h60 push/pull venting out the back of the case and also a extra 120 fan in the drive bays.

Would it be any use to me to flip the roof fan over so its blowing cold air in as well and set up a positive air flow?

You want intake with any radiator, even mounted in the rear. Intake works better.

Opinion isn't fact.

I have done my own testing today. I'm getting it all together. H60 with two AP15's, intake vs exhaust. I'll post it all in the GT thread/watercooling section/this thread when it's done. But I can tell you already that intake got better temps than exhaust.

Oh that is really interesting. I've never though about making it intake if I had the rad in the back. I might have to try that this week and see if my temperatures get better
