Welcome! First thanks for trusting us to help you out. Second please post a pic of your rig to become a member and it will help us trouble shoot your problems. Your GPU temps look fine like you said, I'm not sure about the PSI slot, this is a new one for me. The CPU is way too out for an AMD,

1. Are you OC'ing?
2. What are you running for a CPU cooler?
3. Do you only get high CPU temps while gaming or does it get hot from just stressing the CPU?
4. Try to monitor your temps with HWmonitor to double check temps

I'm guessing that your very long GPU is cutting off the airflow to the top half of your case. Put a fan in the 5.25" bays and I'm guessing your CPU temps will fall a lot. This may also help with the PCI slot heating up over time.

1. No. As far as i know the only thing that is Oc'ed is my graphics card
2. I am running the stock cpu cooler for my AMD 8120 (i know, big no no)
3. I only get really high cpu temps when i am gaming for about 45 mins to an hour, and they cool off quite quickly
4. I downloaded HWmonitor (thank you for the link btw) and these are my temps at idle with a couple internet windows up..


376

I was definetly thinking about replacing the front fan on my scout because it just doesnt feel like its moving enough air.. and the air that does move is getting sucked up by my enormous graphics card...or is there anyway that i could make them run at 100 percent rpm? a fan controller perhaps? I was also looking into getting a corsair H80 to cool my cpu down.... At my current temps i would NEVER be able to even get close to Oc'ing and its something that i would like to learn how to do in the near future.. any thoughts?

New fans will help, cutting the mesh out of the case helps too. The stock fans are running at 100% they are just low rpm fans. The Corsair coolers look great in this case and might be them over all most popular coolers in the Scout. As for OC'ing AMD we have a lot of Scouts that can help with that, I'm not one of them. If you had Intel, well that is easy for me. Could you run HWmonitor while gaming, load temps are what we are after. But I'd say after you get a new cooler and a fans your temps will be in check.

I'm working on it. I like the two I bought so much I think I might just replace all my Rosewills with them. I think I'm past the 'Oooo ooooo! Pretty lights!' stage now. rolleyes.gif

And, what's the deal? I'm not a member anymore? sad-smiley-002.gif Or do I have to re-up?

Nope not a member anymore wink.gif You know the saying around here Once a Scout Always a Scout! I started a new members list so we could start collecting new info on GPU's and weed out the few PSU's that don't have long enough cords. Just fill out the form and you'll be added. If you look at the bottom of the members list, there is the Old Members List too. An old friend hooked me up with that thumb.gif

If you plan on mounting the Cougar fans on top, you may want to check to see if they will make a ticking niose. They know about the problem and are working on getting them fixed, well this is true of the 120mm fans, vertical mounting, they have no problems.

Here are few new pictures of my rig. My team recently placed 3rd at a counter strike source tournament, and we each won a Kingston gift pack. 8 gbs DDR3 hyperX ram, 16 gb flash drive, and the Kingston hyperX memory fan.

I like letting my MB do the job if I can, that is the one thing I hate about the GT-15's, no PWM.

What RPM are they? I like to have a fan controller so I can turn them down when Im not doing anything intensive, then its complete silence thumb.gif Otherwise, if you dont mind the noise or if they arent too loud, then theres no point thumb.gif

Just a quick update guys. Took me awhile to get around to doing some updates and still haven't finished. Been watching the thread though and woohoo nearly 25000 posts. Just goes to show that the Scout is a great case that will continue to be one of the best.

Teaser:450

Now I just gotta finish the thing. Painted the Twin Frozr but I'm not sure I've got it just right. Took the advice and will be leaving the H80 alone but may mode the case to get it outside the case so that good looking Crosshair V Formula isn't covered up with that new 8120 in it. biggrin.gif

25,000!

Hey Scouts, your Major Shadow_Foxx presents you with his celebration of 25,000 posts! Congratulations! I have gone through the entire thread (and worklogs I had bookmarked) over some days and gathered and organized all the watercooling projects that I could find.. Hopefully I have created the ultimate guide to watercooling the Storm Scout, but if I have missed any, please let me know and I will include them! Along the way, I found some mods and other things that I also included just for fun biggrin.gif. Hope everyone likes it, and it gives people ideas and inspiration to do some new things with their scout! This is a great thread and with great members like yourselves, we can continue its popularity. To all members, past and present, thank you! Well, lets get on with it! And be sure to click the “spoiler” to see more pictures and maybe even a link to a build log if you like them! (Wait until the page is fully loaded or else clicking on the “spoiler” will just take you to the top of the page!)

owh, sorry mate, didn't made build log redface.gif but, i'll try to explain it here..
the principle is same as how to mount fan on the side panel..the panel is made from acrylic glass, same as side panel material, cut in same width as front grill/mash but little bit shorter on top to put in the controller/dvdwriter..
initial draft i made, front panel is made from cardboard, as in photo below..but cardboard seems to have gritty edges when cut though for fan hole..
450
same method, but replace cardboard with acrylic glass and you got this:
640
no screw holes in acrylic panel opposed to the cardboard because fan mounted with glue, not screw..
fan can be mounted in various ways : screw, superglue..on my panel, i used UHU glue because don't want it to be permanent, in case wanted to change it to other fan..to mount modded panel to front frame, i made some kind of..hinges/holder??..i dont what you call it..long rectangular shape, from styrofoam, glue it to the frame, to hold the top half of the panel like this:
640
bottom half hold/glued to original frame, top half glued to that rectangular-styrofoam..
and, middle bottom front frame need to be cut (that crosshair design), so that bottom fan could fit in nicely

I have a sheet of black acrylic coming next week that I plan on using on the front cover but today I had a wild hair up my *** and decided to cut an extra Lian-Li side panel I had laying around (black anodized aluminum) so now I’m not certain which way I want to go, acrylic or aluminum. I am also debating if a 140mm fan grill at the bottom will look any good; my other thought is 2 120mm fan grills on the front, even out all that empty space on the front cover, opinions are welcomed. The second pic is with the 120mm grill

AS per request of the good general im putting together a post on my Wind Tunnel/Cooling Duct project.

originally i was planning to use a H50 and mod it to have a second 120mm radiator in the loop for optimum cooling. for that to work i would need a place for that second rad to go, but in my head i wanted every thing to be as clean as possible so i was going to have one rad behind the front 140mm fan (its getting swapped for a 120 so that wasn't going to be a problem) but i needed a place that was out of the way but easily able to get a couple fans to it for the second. that is where the idea for this was born. i decided to build a box to take up the last 3 slots in the drive bay cage (actually needs 4 slots with a rad but the top most or bottom most can be partly filled with a small fan controller or something similar) that would hold a rad and supply fresh air to the rest of the case.

now on to the mod!

i started out with 2 broken DvD drives (salvaged from crappy old broken computers) and decided they would work nicely as they already fit the measurements of the bay and the cases are solid and should be easy to adapt to the intended use. i then decided to use Lexan for the fan holders and side walls as i had some on hand but you can use any thing you think might work. i measured out the opening between the drive bay halves and marked out my cuts on the Lexan. i cut 2 square pieces that will be holding fans.

Lets show the general what watercooling goodness we can cram in our favorite midtower:
