To all of you that have been extending a friendly hand to all the new members I give a huge

Thank You!!!

After losing the guiding light that was our founder, Enigma8750, the club was seeming to lose it's way. I take most of the blame, for I do not have the energy nor the time to keep up on it like he did. However, thanks to loyal members who were here when Enigma was still running the show (you all know who are) and the influx of new membership, it seems that the club is running quite healthy. Everyone here should feel proud of being a member of this group of fine people. I know that Enigma8750 is pleased with how things are keeping up for I am still in contact with him and he sends his best.

I would give individual accolades to those who have stood out in welcoming our new friends, but there are too many of you, so all I can say is keep on trucking and when I have more time ( it's coming. The winter layoffs are just around the corner for me) I'll get into the members list and get everyone onboard with proper rankings and accommodations.

Semper Fi! Scouts, that is all.

I completely understand the need for the 8-pin extension so that it can run under, but why would I need extensions for the 24 pin or 6 pins, when they are already so long? Can those NZXT cables plug directly into a modular power suppy, and then allow me to eliminate the original cables? That would be great, as those NZXT cables are exceptionally nice looking. Thanks for the constructive criticism, I do appreciate knowing where improvements can be made.
Ya the 8 pin power is a must for that board, not too happy about where they put it. The 24pin and pcie extensions are just for looks basically. They wont plug in the modular leads on your psu unfortunately. Head on over to the Rate my cables thread if you are interested in awesome cable management. If you are a beginner with water cooling and don't want the hassle associated with the installation, leak testing and maintenance of a full loop, go with a closed system like the H60. I ran the H50 for a year at 4ghz and it was just fine. There is limited space in the scout so the Corsair/Asetek/Antec/Coolit closed loop systems are great for that.cheers.gif

Funny thing about that, I actually have a brand new H60 at my house. I ordered the 8 pin extension, and a new PSU, and once those arrive, I will take out the MB so I can install the H60 backplate, and redo the wiring as well. Hopefully I should have some pictures of that up next week.
If that goes well, I might put off the water cooling for a while while.
I was seriously considering removing the HDD cage at the bottom and modding the front of the case to fit a rad on the front there, but not sure how well that works.

Anyways, once I get all the new hardware installed, I will post some more pics, and hopefully my wiring will look much cleaner. I will check the rate my cabling board to see how its really done, and then try to emulate the masters.

Thanks!

Totally true,they are great in this case...even better if you get creative with the placing...

Get the Corsair H Series.
The RMA for failure is fantastic! any components damaged by leaking are covered by Corsair and they do replace without issue.

Already done and it works well. You will need a couple of shrouds to make up some distance tho
