Those of you with custom loops, where are you putting your hard drives, I saw a few setupd where the drive bays are taken up by the rad, so confused.

I have to run it with the fan up because the ventilation holes don't line up with the fan on longer PSU's in the Scout.

Yea, I dont know how much I want to spend on a PSU, those are really nice though thats for sure!

Drive bays!

And other random places biggrin.gif :

There are a lot of options to put the drives in the 5.25 bays though, lots of adapters and hot swap bays and things thumb.gif

I was having issues with my card running pretty hot as well. I ended up taking the top140mm fan off and replacing it with a red led fan, so I took the 140mm fan and "mounted" it in the bottom three drive cages to direct cold air from the front of the case directly at my gfx card. It seemed to lower my temps about 10 degrees. That's when I got to thinking about how the fan mounts to the side panel and came up with a theory. The reason the side panel fan doesn't help that much is that its blowing air from outside the case directly at the side of the gfx card. The problem is that there are no vents on the side(for me at least) of the gfx card. Even the inlet for the gpu cooler is closer to the front of the case. The side fan is basically, for all intensive purposes, useless for most of us. In orde for that fan to be effective, it needs to be moved about 4 inches forward, towards the front of the case.

I plan on modding an air chanel from the now front mounted 140mm fan directly to the gpu cooler inlet, probably at some point this weekend.

Here is how I did mine, I just used one of the holes for the cage and made a second hole. I also put an o-ring in between the case and the HDD's to dampen them, it worked great. I would have mounted them in the 5.25" bays but didn't have any left.

I just thought of this after reading what you had to say, has anyone tried to mount the fans as exhaust on the window? It would pull air to the GPU's from the front and pull out all the hot air around it cooling the entire case. I'm sure if you have a SLI or crossfire set up it will really help to cool the top card. Maybe this is way the fan mounts in the window won't make noise with a fan on it. Have we been putting the fan on backwards this whole time? Worth a shot if someone want to give it a try.

Well I got my MSI 7970 to fit with the everything intact! biggrin.gif

In total it was 7mm to long for the scout so I ended up moving the HDD cage so it now sits against the front fan. I also trimmed the bottom of the drive bay around 1cm to accommodate for the 7970's fat ass.

In order for the HDD cage to sit flush against the fan housing I also had to trim away the rounded lip. I also re drilled the holes and fitted small M3 bolts instead of rivets so I can remove the entire assembly
450

You can see how much it has moved as my psu cover use to sit flush!
450
(Sorry for the phone pics redface.gif I will get take some better ones later on promise!)

Next on the list never ending list of jobs is to install the nzxt sleeved adaptors (on order), then create a new PSU cover and decide a new paint colour.

Is your rad setup as intake for fresh air in the front like that? Does it help?! That seems smart or is it there so the 200mm will fit

Welcome! I'm sure it is, many Scouts here that are running the H50 have put it in the 5.25" bays as an intake.

That's a great attitude and I never liked the HAF's that much my self. I will say the 912 was the best looking of them all. I would flip the block over.

That's a great attitude and I never liked the HAF's that much my self. I will say the 912 was the best looking of them all. I would flip the block over.
Having the block upside down was the only way to mount it without much tension on the tubing, with it rightside up the tubing has tension on it, makes me nervous =/, this was just a trial to see how it goes, everything runs smooth and the temps are pretty much the same as when I had it rightside up, I'll be building a custom loop over the next few months so as long as this doesn't cause a leak or temps to be insane I'll leave it how it is for now, I don't want to pull the block off anymore lol I've applied new thermal paste 3 times now over the last week and a half, as5 is a pain with having to burn it in.
