No, the PCI-E cables are stuff enough to stop the card from drooping any more. I won't bother with cable management until I get my 600T SE

So I bought a CM Scout recently and decided to share some of the mods i've made with the case!

2011-08-12 13.46.09.jpg

I've been fairly ambitious as far as liquid cooling goes and have decided to install 3 radiators. Two single 140's and one single 120.

It hasn't been without it's struggles though. Removing the rivets from the bottom of the hard drive bay for example was fairly simple. Removing them from the top proved tricky as I couldn't get my drill inside the case to do it, so I resorted to brute force to remove the remained of the obstructing metal.

In it's place I put a 140mm radiator with push and pull fan configuration.

2011-08-12%2013.46.37.jpg

At the top I was planning on placing a 140mm rad and 140mm fan, however one of the heatsinks on the motherboard protrudes out enough to make this impossible. To overcome this I bought a 120mm to 140mm fan converter and so currently it's a 140mm radiator with a 120mm fan.

2011-08-12%2013.47.58.jpg

This also meant that I would have to change the position of 120mm on the rear of the case, originally meant to be mounted inside the case, with the 120mm fan from the top radiator coming down further than originally planned I decided to mount it outside the case. I was going to mount the radiator out and the fan in, but because the case at the back is not flat the would lead to airflow issues that would be very difficult to resolve.

As I had removed the hard drive cage this meant I would place the HDD's in the CD racks. 3 750GB HDD and 1 120GB SSD.

2011-08-12%2013.47.50.jpg

That's as far as I have been able to get at the moment as I am still waiting on fittings for the CPU block and for my graphics cards and the water blocks from them too.

Just my humble addition to this already impressive thread. I will continue to post updates as and when.

Feedback and questions appreciated!

Very nice build

You can easily fit the CPU power cable behind the mobo tray (or even under the motherboard itself) and connect it perfectly fine. If it's a stretch you can also get an 8 pin extension. Looking good otherwise

I have just had a look at doing that, but I can't see any easy way of doing it. To take out the motherboard I need to remove the top rad and to remove that I need to remove the cpu water block which would mean having to re-apply the TIM which I don't really want to do again!

To route it behind the motherboard tray I would need an extention of about 2-3cm which doesn't really seem worth it.

Currently I am going to hide it inbetween the motherboard and the gfx cards, to the left of the PCI-E slots.

I've tucked it behind the PSU and once the gfx cards and sound card go in i'm pretty sure it won't be that noticable.

no need to remove the CPU water block, you might actually need to remove the top rad, but your buil isn't finished anyways. You will need to take your componets out anyways when it comes to test your loop for water leaks. If I was you I'll remove it and route the cable between the motherboard tray, and the actual motherboard, if it doesn't reach, try flipping around your PSU so the cables coming out of the PSU are closer to the motherboard tray. I will look much, much better. Trust me, now you say that you will tuck the cable away, but eventually you are gonna want to hide it.

GAH!!! I have this rig over a year and NOW I find out C2s may or may not like 4 DIMMs at 1600?!
