Made some small progress on modifying this case by braiding the case wires. Accidentally broke off one of the legs from the LED from the PWR LED wire, so had to order a small replacement which is annoying. rolleyes.gif

375

Also was thinking of adding some carbon fibre look vinyl to some parts of the case, and thought something along the lines of this would look cool for a minimalistic design. Knocked this up quickly in photoshop. So I ordered 350mm x 450mm carbon fibre vinyl, and looking to get some perspex cut neatly (don't trust using a rotary tool as I always seem to melt it slightly).

375

Still need to paint the case after the initial coat of primer, but due to snow over the weekend I couldn't be bothered to venture out to B&Q to get any! Maybe I'll go get it tomorrow. thumb.gif

Hello again everyone! It's been ages since I posted in here, but it looks like I will be taking on two Scout builds (One for my wife, and one for my daughter) in the near future. Stay tuned!

Got this case a while back, first build in it with specs-
phenom 2 x6 1090t
ASUS gtx 560ti
caviar black 1tb
Kingston hyperx 8gb 1600mhz (which is blue, unfortunately)
ASUS M4a87td EVO
and a cooler master 750 watt PSU (non modular, which I really regret now too)

Going to be re wiring everything, and getting a new CPU cooler.

Right now, all the cable management is just... gross, with all the unused cables in front of the intake and an IDE dvd drive, which I'll be getting rid of too. So I wont be showing what it looks like now.
I'm running a stock cooler, which is what I want to upgrade, and I thought I'd be getting a corsair H60, and two extra case fans. I'm still undecided on the fans, probably getting either 2 silenX 120mm fans or 2 arctic cooling F12s. The F12s are twice as cheap, but a bit louder (5 dB) and white. While the silenXs are red and a bit quieter. unless someone has a better suggestion, I'll get either one of these.

Then I was thinking of how to set up all the fans, and what I thought was to have the bottom fan on the window as an exhaust, to get rid of all the hot air the 560ti makes, and then the upper one as an intake. Then I'd be putting the radiator of the H60 where the 120mm exhaust is now, and having the fan included with the case also attached to the H60. Good plan? anyone have a better idea?

Dumb question, anyone know where I can find different rivets for the side window? I kind of want something different then the standard black rivets that hold the side window. Thanks!

Please respond!

I've also ordered the Nexus Beamair for my H40. I think that will make it alot cooler to look at haha:D.

Kinda hard to say with those pics, but I'd say cable extensions, some ram with nice heat sinks, HHD and PSU cover, a MB and CPU upgrade.

Looking great, sorry to here about the LED. How are the fingerss holding up? I know mine have been numb for 2 days now, just finished the 24 pin on my PSU. As for the CF if you plan on leaving the HDD cage out, cover the floor and back panel too.

You should get some new case feet to lift it up a tad, I be that bottom fan will move a ton more air. Or just put it on something to see if it helps first rolleyes.gif

I'm not a big fan, no pun intended, on the fans on the side window. They make a lot of noise, As far as fans are concerned, the ones you put on your rad, I would go with the AC's out of the two you picked. You should really check this thread out. Martinm put a ton of time and effort in to the tests. Keep in mind a good case fan doesn't always makes a good rad fan.
http://www.overclock.net/t/859483/round-6-fan-testing-working-thread
One last thing, don't mix and mach fans in push pull. If the specs are not close you will just slow one fan down and could case a really bad buffering noise. I like the idea that you are wanting to play with the fans configuration, I feel it's always a good idea to do. I know I have come up with some configurations that worked great and some would say you shouldn't do it like that, but the number don't lie. Make sure you post some pics one you get it sorted out.

That is a dumb question, just poking fun at you poke.gif I used screws on mine, I would try an auto store and see if they have any nice allen head bolts. If not check your local hardware store. Or you can order from here.

Yep I really like it, the wire looms fit this case perfect. About the only things you may want to look at is try to gloss up your covers. If you are having cooling problems you may want to put a fan in the 5.25" bays, the GPU is cutting you case in half blocking all the intake at from the front fan.

Thanks 4 feedback. as for cooling so far it's all ok except when i bump my procie to 5 Ghz. core#2 hits 81C / Corsair H60 ( i live in asia, one of hot countries where avg. ambient 35C ).

Here's picts of fans position ( lots but quiet enough ) and my i5 2500K at 5Ghz ( unluckly I had to stop at 3rd loop of IBT since 1 of cores touched 81C. lol.

green 14cm, blue 12cm, red 8cm and white 4cm*2
