Here's the full thread in pictures...

Hi guys! Been trying my best to complete my first liquid cooling pc mod. I like your input on this one. I'm going cheaper with this build as my replacement for my aging Zalman Fatal1ty FC-ZE1 pc case. I'm still sticking with the traditional mid tower size here. Been checking Danger Den & Mountain Mods PC cases before. Though I'm more than willing to spend more for a pc case, the pc cases that I've checked before were just too big for my taste. I like my PC the size similar to those that you can get in some electronic stores such as Best Buy & not the size of a small refrigerator. The problem is that if you want a full liquid cooling set up, you need to have big radiators to cool thing down (as what I saw in almost all liquid cooling mods here at overclock.net). Few months ago, I read this review of PNY GTX 580 Liquid Cooled GPU & CPU. It seems possible to cool things down without having to use a gigantic pc case. That's is why I decided to buy a cheap CM Storm Scout pc case & try my luck in liquid cooling. I'm almost done with my build but been having some problems with wiring & some other stuff. That's why I need your suggestions.

450
My initial plan is to build a liquid cooled pc with everything at the inside. While looking for something in my basement I saw this box of Zalman passive liquid cooling reservoir that I bought more than a year ago but not able to use it. I was thinking of selling it soon thereafter I bought it but somehow I forgot about it. Upon close examination of the passive reservoir, I decided that maybe I have some use for it. I'm thinking with this build, I maybe able to build a pc that can run on a closed liquid cooling set up with the option that I can connect a passive liquid cooling reservoir if I want to for added performance.

The front intake fan is way low & off centered. I decided to cut the front fan intake housing. In doing so, I was able to put a much bigger double thick 140 mm radiator instead of a smaller 120 mm radiator. The fan is now centered.

450
Besides the Koolance front reservoir, I decided to put a smaller tube reservoir inside the case. This is because I like the look of a tube reservoir inside the case & not that it's really needed.

700
I'm not really will be using this PC for LAN parties. I'm too old for LAN parties & don't go on LAN parties. I do travel out of the country at times. I like have a pc that is small enough to get inside a Pelican case I saw being sold at Fry's electronics. Why not also add a wireless N connection for added portability minus the wires.

A new side window really helps with the looks too, and if you chose to not put a fan in it, it will help with sound levels and allow for slightly better air flow through the case vs no fans in the stock window.

Thanks dude.
Yeh was thinking about putting a hdd cover on, But trying to figure out how you mounted the hdd n stuff with it covered up, as you can not mount with screws on it.
As for PSU cover, I think gonna get some P.glass and just paint it or leave it transprant and make a nice wind tunnel with hdd to back of psu

Wonder if this would even help though doing this.
As i got pretty great cable management i would say. its hard to get any better then what i got.



I already went ahead and already took my side fan off.
As i found since it was a intake it was putting to much dust into the case


You speak of this Side case with no fan grills?
Can you buy this or do i gotta mod it?
I saw alot of people without the side grills and it looks much more slick.


Must say this case feet, would give some nice accent lighting.

1. You make it just long enough and push it in place
2. You have to make it

Ordered a 7970, and at 10.9" it should be an interesting squeeze into the Scout biggrin.gif
