That's what's great about having a work-bench / open working station. It's easier to get your sight's on everything going on with your system!!! thumbsupsmiley.png: Great work on the bench!!! Very specool.gif

I think you should make a thread on building your own working station!!! You have a good example... thumb.gif

Give it about 6 months and SSDs will become alot more affordable.

I read somewhere that if prices get cheaper per gigabyte so is their quality. It was OCN, but cant remember where. I would like for them to drop in price also, but im scared to hear how much they fail.

Alright guys, i've REALLY been thinking about various cooling options for my scout. At first i just wanted to upgrade a few fans and whatnot, then i wanted to get a closed loop cooler (like an H80); But now I'm thinking that i want to take the plunge and go full water-cooling. I know that some of the scouts in here have water-cooling, so i was looking for some advice and maybe a little guidance on the components ill need and the mods i will have to make on my case in order to fit them. My budget is around 300 dollars, and i was hoping to be able to cool both my CPU and GPU. I was looking at some EK kits and they seem to be pretty good, But i am a complete noob at water-cooling so i honestly have no idea rolleyes.gif , lol. I have an amd fx 8120 and an EVGA GTX 580sc, so the components have to work with those parts obviously. As far as mods go, i was thinking of removing the HDD cage and mounting the HDD and SDD in the 5.25 bays. Then i guess i would probably mount the radiator where the HDD cage used to be....Idk any pointers or abvice would be greatly appreciated. I would have asked in the water cooling forum but those people don't know the scout as well as you guys, and this case isn't really intended for water cooling so its not really an easy install.. lol tongue.gif

Ok where to start, first of all you will prob need a 240mm radiator in the front as you are cooling your gfx and cpu, only prob is that there is cutting involed besides remove your HHD tray you will have to cut out a box section at the bottom of you 5.25 bay.Have a good look at goodlinks awsome wicked build. you also need a 120m radiator in the back.
Before you start though you should test your watercooling link so there are no leaks, better it leaks allover your workbench than your beloved scout.
Other things are, take your time measure twice cut once.
Another tip is, try to keep all the fans the same make and model as this will keep the airflow the same, you find that some people have different fan makes and speeds and you want a good balance.
Tidy your cables up too, keep them out of the way not to disturb the airflow.
As for the parts have a good look round, you will kow what you want when you see it.EK and swifttech are very good make and are very reliable.

Hope this will help you in your water scout.

what do you think of my progress so far( again sorry for shoddy phone pics tongue.gif)

I am about 70% complete, still got to paint a few extra layers (ran out of paint tongue.gif) and figure out a way of covering the massive hole the wires run through with something more appealing. thinking.gif
Only took a few hours and required a few offcuts of wood and an old atx case rescued from the impending doom of the crusher tongue.gif
hope ya like? Any tips for improvement?

this looks the mutts nuts, When will we get to see the work log of this beast, i would like the see pics from start to finish, what are the chances???

Thanks Guys

I wish I started a thread now, but unfortunately I never took any photos of the build process as I finished the thing from scratch in only a few hours redface.gif

If I can pick up another old atx case I am sure I can build another one slightly different and photograph the progression thumb.gif
