Ok, question one: I have a MSI 760GM-E51 Mainboard. Will it fit in the CM Storm Scout case?

Question two: I am guessing it doesn't come with side fans judging from the pictures. Is it hard to mount one or two side fans on the clear window?

Question three: Since I'm practically a new comer to this. Will it be a hard transport over to the Scout from my old case?

Question four: My current power supply is 585W. I am planning on upgrading it to 800W PS. Will I have problems with a bigger PS?

Question five: This is my first case transfer ever. I've heard they are hard but again they are easy. Can someone inexperienced or has a little knowledge be able to do this?

Question six: My current rig's built in front jacks for mic and audio are how should I say...nominal at best. Sometimes it cuts my mic out. How are the audio and microphone jacks on the Storm?

Last question. Question seven: Is it a good case for a new person?

If anyone can answer my questions. I'd be greatful even if they are good, bad, or the brutal truth.

1. Yes
2. It's easy for the bottom fan, top fan depends on your cooler. Use very low CFM fans or they will make lots of noise.
3. No harder than building it from new.
4. Not at all
5. Again it's the same as build a new rig, if you can do that you can move your hardware
6. They are great, I used mine all the time. Infact they are better than Lian Li's
7. It's a great case, make sure your GPU in under 10.5" long and you be good. Cable management is good but hard to get right, we can help with that or any other problems you run across.

2: no side fans, super easy, just need the screws. 4 per fan, u can get away with two. the holes are predilled
6: my are ok, though if i use both at once they seem to stuff the mic up or audio, cant remmeber, so i just use back. easier that way to plug headphones into my speakers and leave the mic still plugged into the back. could just be mine though

Well sound cards don't off load windows like they used to, unless you are using XP still. Other than that I can't really help you, I haven't looked at sound cards in a long time, onboard is pretty good these days, your better off buying good speakers over a card now.

Good midrange gaming box, welcome to the club! thumb.gif What games do you play? Also, fill out your system specs in the rig section that goodink provided the link to. Then your specs appear under every post so it makes it easier for people to find them. smile.gif
