Calm down. TT has some really nice cases like the Spedo. They do have their fair share of stealing designs but it does look like a great case. I love how they're one of the few companies basically only making black interior cases. Most if not all companies have taken a thing or two from another.

Also, I think this case is more of a rip off of the storm sniper.

How much did that sheet of acrylic cost? My side fans are dust magnets and I may do what you did.

What I did for the most part (except for the one hole, where I just got carried away) was start drilling a little just to get a pilot hole going, then get your drill going full speed, and apply light, constant pressure. Not much more than the weight of drill, I'd say. It might take about 10-15 seconds to drill through 1/8", but the hole will be clean, and won't crack. Hope that helps

It was dirt cheap, like $5 for a 2'x4' sheet. I found it at Home Depot by the window area.

It does. Plexi has its little quirks. Like scoring and breaking it in a complete straight line.

IChanged out my cpu cooler for the Megahlem with 1 to a Scythe S-Flex 120x25 1900 rpm fan facing the top 120 fan and with room temp of 85f my cpu temp is a steady 30c, with my CM V-8 and this room temp it would go up from 30c to 42c, nice improvment I think.
I still need to upgrade to a better cpu but not so sure to what now after reading about the new AMD 550 BE and the coming AMD 965 BE or the AMD 955 BE, but not before cutting the lexan sheet I got today for my window mod. After seeing what seven9st surfer did to his, in my opinon clear is the way to go to show off the inside.

Does anyone happen to have a list of GPU's that fit this case easily?

esp the ones that plug in on the side, instead of on the back.


I was looking at this card earlier - 1GB XFX HD 4890 Black, PCI-E and on the page it recommended a storm scout to go with the card.

I replaced all my fans and re-did the cable management on the back.. its tight. I also added an antec drive bay thingy.


I think this will be the first water cooled scout on this thread

I'm upgrading some stuff so were going to have to wait a bit for me to get it together so you still have a chance to put in your wc'd scout.

BTW I am selling my dual bay dangerden reseviour for 25$ canadian with the fittings (G1/4 thread 1/2"). It is still clear (not stained) but I did use it so its only 25$.

If anyone has any ideas on how I could remount my triple 120 rad I would love to hear it.. I only have it like this for the space.


I also need to find grommets for 1" holes where I put my hoses through.

Image Links Here


I can only find two stores in Canada that have water cooling stuff so my scout is going to look "rough" until I find all the right stuff

I can't guarantee it but I think if you had a 240 rad you could fit it on the window.

Your right... but dealing with the hoses would be a real pain if it was on the panel.
