You'll probably want to replace the clear acrylic with the old window as you will definitely need a fan on the side panel. I tried running my crossfire set up without it and the temps were around 10C warmer. With a fan on the side window you should be fine but bear in mind that if the fan is run on 12V it will create a lot of noise.

Thats why I replaced the window in the first place. I can give that a shot, hopefully my wife didn't throw it away LOL

If you can't find the original window, either order a new one or mod your current one to fit one fan in front of the card area kind of like the way MNPC did one of their Scouts. It'll look much better than the stock window. The only negatives is the window looks far better without fan grills and if you don't see any difference in temps, for whatever reason, you'll have destroyed a good window.

Niceee LOL. At his point I'll try anything, I don't want to have my system catch fire or something, or degrade the performance of the cards. If all fails, I think it would be a good time to start saving for water cooling those cards biggrin.gif

Have you cut the metal honeycomb out of the front? Do you have a slot between the card or are they stacked? You might be able to put a fan in the PSU cover blowing up at the cards. Could post w pic of what your setup looks like.

BTW could you take a min to fill out the new Members list, I'm trying to get more info on GPU's fitments and PSUs that have too short of cables. Plus if anyone needs a look at your setup, they can find it there.

Damn...I disappear for a week and when I come back there is over 70+ fresh posts! I am glad this thread is picking up again thumbsupsmiley.png

Just thought I would share my moment of madness during an episode of insomnia the other day.

338
should be arriving tomorrow afternoon and I cant wait

Now I know this card is not going to fit into the scout without a nip tuck here and there but from my calculations it is only 7mm larger then the scout can handle. Now has anyone managed to fit one of these in without removing the hard drive cage entirely?

I don't mind a bit of surgery to get it to fit in but I have four HDD's + an SSD in total so I cant afford to loose the cage.
Any Ideas?

Filled the member list thumb.gif I didn't cut the honeycomb from the front, only the one on the back for my H70. There is a PCI slot in between the two cards, and I have the same space difference between the bottom card and the PSU (the cover I removed because it was too close to the bottom card. Here is a pic:
700

If you want to see another angle, let me know.

I remember now, High Voltage thumb.gif Too many Scouts to remember rolleyes.gif

Try running it with the side panel off, if your temps drop then you are going to need a fan. You could put a hole in your window or your PSU cover with a hole in the floor to pull cool air from outside the case. I'm thinking a hole in your window will be your best bet. You shouldn't need a high rpm one, get a nice quite fan.

Thanks for filling the form out.

LOL good memory bro thumb.gif I'm going to play BF2 with the side panel off, and see if that helps. I've also replaced the TIM with some Tuniq TX-4 (should be better than the crap it came with) but it will need time to cure.
