Don't try to fix a paint problem while paint is wet. let it dry even if you mess up.. Remember.. it is easier to fix dry paint problems then wet.
soo confused and the painting guides here on OCN tell you to use everything from 200-2000.

so you're saying i can just sand with 600 grit. apply the primer and then all the paint coats etc. and be done???

Heat-sink Dimensions 120 x 120 x 158mm to 169mm is the optimum size range for this case.

Sexy Scout boss, i love that white, especially the way you have the power cables to your graphics cards like that! And the hard drive mod of course . I had a question, do you think if I cut down the hard drive cage like you did but, instead of mounting it to the floor, mounted it the the bottom of the cd drive bay cage (upside down) do you think it would work? I kinda wanna add another 240/280 on the floor of my scout, and i am trying to figure out a way to keep the hdd cage in some form or another. thanks!

i've seen a few mods where the cage was at the top instead of at the bottom.

overall i think they are maybe about 10 6950's that can fit into the scout, but only 3-4 that can fit into the 2nd slot without modding.

Not sure if anyone here has had a look at the latest CM Storm Trooper.
But it has a nice little tray that slots into a bay, where you can put spares (screws n stuff) I was wondering if anyone knew where to buy a similar tray for this case? Instead of attempting to make my own?

Could you point me in the direction of any of them off the top of your head? Many Thanks

i remember seeing them but i couldn't tell you where. if i remember correctly it was just a matter of bending in the 2 sides and then using a pop-rivot gun to attach it to the top. but i could be completely misremembering how it was done. =/

i know we have 2 white scouts (with mine soon to be the 3rd) or so i thought... i just saw this one

post #23630 of 28613
got my H80 in the mail yesterday so now I've just gotta get a PSU, GPU, and OS and I'll be done and ready for SWTOR!!


Pics of everything when i start throwing them into my case
