Hi All

Been planning a few mods for my next big update next year (bulldozer woop woop) and I think I am going to down the water-cooled route.

Now I am a complete noob when it comes to water cooling but looking at a few peoples liquid builds on here I see it is rather tricky to fit a decent setup within the scout. I had a few hours free today to try and design a solution that will enable me to fit 2x360 rads and a possible 120 rad on the exhaust of the case if it is needed.

My plan is to build a second section that is riveted and bonded to the bottom of the case that will allow the fitment of the 2X360 rads. I would then route the pipes through the floor of the case near the hard drive mounts and then make a new custom PSU cover to still cover up the wires and general uglyness.



the frame of the addition will consist of 20x20x3mm steel angled iron that I will weld into this structure below:-



I will also weld two plates the the sides on the structure to allow for the radiators to be mounted on.


the radiators will both have 3 fans set out in push arrangement and the frame will also have 4 fans pulling air into the new box.


As you can see from the image above I have left some space at the front of the box to enable the fitment of the pump/pumps but if the temperature is not as brilliant as I hoped it would be there would still be the option of an additional fan.

expanded view of the set up


sorry the pictures are not very big would you believe it has taken 6 hours just to render these sizes! (I need a render farm or bulldozer badly)

my question to all you liquid coolers out there will this set up be enough as I will only run 3 fans per rad?

Also what would be the best way to plumb the rads into the system? i.e should I run them parallel with two splitters one for the hot and one for cold on the rads?

Or

Should I run them in series i.e into one rad then into the other and out again?


I hope you guys like my design and feel free to comment on any of it

Finished a new PC today. Built this to have something for my friends to play on when they come over, and as a portable LAN rig I can carry to parties as a substitute for my immovable beast main PC(specs are almost identical but my main is in an NZXT Phantom case). Decided to go with the Storm Scout, and its surprisingly mobile with a light weight and the handles on top!

Aren't carrying handles great?

I use my Scout as a media pc. Mind you mine feels like it weighs a ton (I have a 4 story home and carting it to the top floor bedroom is a bit irritating).

Love it though. Went from an NZXT Vulcan (another case with a handle) due to a need for more space and have few regrets (other than weight).

I put some pics as attachments here. I know the wiring is kind of messy at the moment, but hopefully I can get that cleaned up soon.

I am doing some research right now into a watercooling system, and once I get that all figured out, I will post some new pics with that installed. (Anyone with some advice or experience is welcome to share!
You built your system in a Scout and posted pics. That gains automatic entry. Welcome aboard. Grab the club php off the front page and put into you sig line and you're done. Nice work on the build and we're looking forward to seeing your progress. Carry on Scout!

I used solidworks 2010 for the design and imported the assemblies into keyshot 2 to make them look pretty

By far the two most expensive programs on my rig but you have gotta love university as they just gave them to me at the start of my degree.

Well I have been building several machines lately, migrated my new 2500K build into the Scout and my 2 I7 920/950 rigs to the NZXT Phantoms that I have acquired recently. I'll post some pics pretty soon. Happy to see the ol' Scout back in service!

Here is my old setup in the Scout, more to come.
Good to see the scout being used again! I absolutely love this setup! The graphics cards look so good and the sleeved cables add a very clean look!
