So I got my case last night and threw it together! Loving is so far. I am gonna have to do this build in phases due to availability of certain tools, cash, ect ect.

So far I was able to do a simple reverse mounted hard drive. I used to do this all the time in my old antec 1200. I just used the 3.5 inch adapter that came with the case and some screws. Oh I found some of my little rubber grommets to help keep it as quiet as i can right now!

I don't know about shorts causing hardware damage, however I know with my storm scout (and others have reported this) touching/wiggling the top panel would sometimes cause problems. My computer would reboot or would just go black and require a reboot to start working again. It would happen especially when adding and removing usb devices.

The solution to this is to not connect the reset switch to the motherboard. Not a big deal for me, since I never use the reset switch.

that's not the problem.. go a page or two back and you'll see what actually causes it most of the time, it's not the reset switch.. as mine has always been connected, i stopped the reboots by doing exactly what i described in my post lol..

i'm thinking about buying 3 more of the fans that come stock in the Scout, 2 for a ghetto rigged version of Striker's windtunnel mod (until school is out and i can actually make it) and 1 to put on the window; and then with darkstars help i'll wire them all in to the button on the top of the scout.. any ideas/suggestions/improvements ??

edit: and down the road probably before the year is out i might paint it white

Wait.. I can't get two case fans working.. The top 140mm works, but the rear, and HDD drive fans won't work.

Pretty much every case wire is in, but I can't find any that are directly from the case fans (all lost in the large mass of cables).. I plugged the molex which makes the 140mm work, but how do you get the 2 120's on?

You might want to check your molex pins. Sometimes they have a habit of popping out just far enough that they looked connected but their not.

I would just wiggle each pin and do a quick double check!

Will a Scythe Mugen 2 fit the scout?

I just put the rig in my sig together and need an aftermarket cooler asap...

The stock AMD fans running at +6k rpms when I run the BF3 beta...

Any help would be much appreciated...
