Might buy a cathode kit tonight and give it a go.
You can fit one on top, and one on the back (if you don't have a rad on the back) and if you want to mount one on the bottom, you will need a short one, because the 12inch ones won't fit due to the hard drive cage. I have only one mounted on top, and is enough light for me. Excuse the crappy amateur phone pics. Also excuse the cables, i'm in the process of bending a piece of acrylic and painting it, and also cutting a hard drive cover.

Nice but switch the fans to intake air from the back You will get better temps... just ask everyone else I've told that!

I remember there was a big debate in the Corsair Hydro series thread about that, concerns were the intake of the hot air that comes out of the video card. My setup intakes air from the front and top 140mm fans, and so far so good. With idle temps around 30-34 and load temps (prime95) around 55-60, can't really complain.

Try it anyway I don't get problems with hot air from the video card. Unless you have one of those external exhaust type cards. After much talking we also decided that the front drive bays are the best place to mound the radiators as intake. I plan to do that once I get a block of foam to hold it in place.

side fan exhaust or intake? (quieter as exhaust, replacement grills being look at)

dependent on GFX?

edit @ linkin..reverse the fans at the top and back and have the front as exhaust? edit: getting a tfIII which dumps heat into the case

No, just switch the rad fans as intake and leave the rest of your cooling setup the same. Works for me.

Yeap, thats the key position for a rad, I always wanted to try that, maybe some day I'll try to make a mount for it.

Its easy, just get one of the metal plates, get 2 case screws. Then make sure you have push pull as intake then put the 2 rad screws through the metal plate then screw it into the rad. Then screw the metal plate onto the case.

That may sound confusing but here are a few pics







When playing BF3, i get up to 43 degrees on my processor and about 75 degrees on my graphics card. Then when i idle (10 tabs on google chrome, minecraft server, skype, email, hwmonitor and fraps ) My CPU runs at about 33 degrees and my GPU runs at 45 degrees.

Nice. Exactly the same place as mine is. You can't see the cathode itself but it lights up the case nicely!

Hey all.

Haven't posted in a while but thought I would just put a few more pictures of a few changes to the White Scout. I am still working out what to do with the front panel in terms of fitting it in with the theme and haven't changed the window yet as I have different plans for that piece of acrylic (Pics soon) so will be ordering another one for the window in the next week or so.

As you can see in the pics, i was experimenting with mounting the acrylic on the outside rather than inside of the side panel and with different types of fixtures, hence why there is a random bolt where a pin should be.

I had to send my GTX465 back to the company I bought it from 11 months ago, due to an error with the screen going blank and driver stopping responding, but luckily they gave me a full refund and I was able to upgrade to a GTX560ti which is installed in the below pics, and have to say its amazing! Also, was given a NZXT Sentry LX fan controller which has also been installed!











Thanks!
White Scout
