Just put what is now my primary desktop computer together. It wasn't my first build, but it's the first built that's for myself and not for someone else.

Anyways, the past building projects I've had, the largest source of frustration always stemmed from the chassis, but I gotta say I'm lovin the Storm Scout; it's made working on computer damn near pleasurable.

Plenty of room to operate, hardware isn't cramped, yet it's not a space-hogging goliath, either.
Tool-less hard drive rack works great which is a big deal to me since I'm currently sporting 5 internal HDDs.
Tool-less drivebays work perfectly, too.
The fan power is a little underwhelming, but the option of upgrading is obviously available as well as total of 5 different locations for fans, so I see it as part of the territory of the Scout being a very fair priced introductory case for enthusiasts; if I had paid more, I'd expect the fans to be moving more air, but given the Scout's price tag, the fans are more than adequate.
I was assuming the LEDs would be distracting and that I would end up just leaving them turned off, but they are really aren't too bright and I think they actually add a nice touch of flair to the case.
The grayed out window is also a plus. I would have preferred a totally clear transparency, but that's just my own personal preference.
And maybe the most functional feature of the case, the top side handle, has been incredibly useful and has made life not just a little bit easier when it comes to moving and shifting the case around.
There's a lot more I could say, mostly positive, but I will just sum it up by saying I'm stoked on the Scout, and that it ended up being my favorite piece of equipment that went into my build.

Well you came to the right place. The first page has a lot of examples of peoples rigs. Even just a few pages back there are some great examples of fan configurations with a closed loop and side panel mods.

I really don't think that bulldozer is being treaded right with those benchies.. The problem , IMHO is that the 8 Core processor is not well used during the Benchmarks so they don't show well.. Plus the power consumption is really High.. Like 145 watts at overclock.. that with a fermi can make you power bill jump like a rabbit.. I might be buying me an 1100 6 core. better benchies. Want a real laugh.. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SArxcnpXStE&feature=player_embedded"]check this out[/ame].

That Hitler meme is well written lol. I was waiting for AMD to pwn the 2500K or at least compete with it and draw less power so I can update my sig rig. Healthy competition. All the hype. All the delays. I'm not sure what happened. I'm still in shock. Look at the gaming results, wow. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/434?vs=288
