how do your lights hook up? can u plug them straight into the switch on the front panel?(using the 2 pin connector thingies)? adn how do ur fan leds light up, or is everything constantly on?
after seeing yours i decided to straighten up a few cables in the last hour smile.gif stil lneeda cut the 240mm hole tho frown.gif

Can't hurt by straightening up cables thumb.gif...I used to be notorious for running cables anywhere and everywhere, but I've recently found that it not only looks better...it does actually help reduce airflow resistance which helps keep the CPU/GPU cooler. biggrin.gif

All the fan LEDs are hooked up where they stay on permanently...they aren't hooked up to the on/off switch on the front of the storm scout. The CCFLs are hooked up to the power converter that came with them, which I mounted inside along the top of the case above the empty drive bays. There is a switch to turn them on and off located in one of the PCI slots...granted I did have to splice the switch cables and extend them a good 8" to reach from the PCI slot to the power converter itself. I've heared that it's best not to extend the length of the wire going directly from the CCFLs to the adapter as that could possibly cause them to be dimmer...so I left those alone and simply extended the length of the switch wiring. Looking back, one thing I would have changed about this build would be to have put all the lights on the same switch so I cold turn off everything (CCFLs and fan LEDs) at the same time from the front of the Scout via the push button.

Yeah, I took the sides panels off of another old desktop I was trashing and used a Dremel to cut those to size and added the 92mm fan hole in the PSU cover, then simply painted them with several coats of hammered-finish spray paint.

One thing I'd like to know. How is your PSU mounted? Is it way up inside like it looks? Or is that just a custom vent for a bottom case fan? If it's mounted inside, how do you vent the heat from the PSU? headscratch.gif

Yeah...the PSU is simply mounted where the case has a cutout for the power supply . The PSU gets cool air from underneath the case (can see a sliver of the PSU intake hole along the top of the pic shown below) via it's own fan which faces downward and then it pushes the air out the back of the case. I installed a 120mm intake fan along the bottom of the Storm Scout (pic below) and directly above it is a 92mm fan that pushes that cool air up towards the CPU. Granted, I recently changed the 120mm fan grill to a Silverstone FF121 which includes a filter to trap dust before it gets sucked into the bottom of the case.

I wonder what the side panel looks like. So far I still prefer the original scout...hopefully this doesn't mean the original is getting discontinued.

Same here...from the looks of it so far, I like the original better. From that pic it appears there are fewer optical and HDD bays to accommodate longer GPUs. I've sure that that's a plus for gamers, but I like having plenty of room to mount drives if I need them. I like the exterior design though...pretty cool...maybe I should have waited before buying my second scout a few weeks ago!

Yeah let me know if you do hook them up to the panel switch, is be very interested.
And I'll defs look into getting some cold cathodes.
Have you tried cutting the front crosshair plastic bit off for a more consistant look?

The silenco 650 looks real nice and sleek. Although the open door thing on the front. I hate those tongue.gif

Anyone exchanged two of the front usb2 to USB3"s. my mb came with a USB3 expansion thing which I had in a cddrive bay. Tho I took it out to fit my extra fan up the front. I was wondering if I could replace two of the original ones with the two new ones and how hard it'd be. (didn't want to have to drill new holes up the top Nd have 6 USB slots on the front pAnel. Already have like 14 USB slots :/ hha

Thought about it...but decided against it since I kinda like the crorsshair on the front...but would be an easy mod if I ever decide I want to...

Here is to hoping they stay true to the Scout on the window. I'm hoping they keep the first one too.

I'm sure it's a half cage in the bottom and a removable one above it. Now that I have calmed down some and looked at it. I'm about 95% sure it's build on the new HAF XM. HDD cage isn't the same and the Scout 2 have two rivets on the top about the 5.25" bays that are not on the HAF XM. This might be all new.
