I dont think so; most people who spend a grand on a video card or 500 on a processor are willing to spend more than 70 dollars on a case tongue.gif

I thought so. Most I've seen here with Scout still using underpowered past gen CPU. I'm probably crazy enough then to put (2) GTX 680 cards on Scout. Anyway, I really like this case due to its size & style. I used a Zalman Fatal1ty case worth $400 before & sure could afford to buy more than $200 case but this expensive cases are just to huge for my taste.

I FINALLY got the motherboard for my Scout I've had the case and all of the other components for a while now. This is my first time building a pc so I didn't do anything to extravagant.

I modded the case to hinge from the rear (suicide door) biggrin.gif and used a toolbox lock for the latch.

My cable management sucks ATM ill clean it up once i have all the fans changed over to blue leds. I will also repaint the shield on the front panel silver. I found two Antec fans on clearance for $4.50 each and decided I prefer blue over red after all.

I absolutely LOVE the case. Ive been reading here for a while and this thread helped me choose the scout over several other cases.

So here is my build
AMD FX-4170 Zambezi 4.2GHz
MSI 990FXA-GD80V2 AM3+
PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 600W Modular
OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850

P1010002-2.jpg
P1010005-3.jpg
P1010011-2.jpg
P1010008-2.jpg

I need some advice on making all the fan lights operate from the front switch the fans on the side are Antec 3 speed 120mm tricool's

Nice side door modding Tjm1.thumb.gif

What kind of solder you use? Are doing TEC weld?

I tried soldering using a regular solder but it doesn't seem to stick on Scout.

This kind of solder
biggrin.gif

I didn't weld it to the case, the hinges are welded to two stainless steel plates, the plates are screwed to the case with self taping screws the screws were inserted from the outside so that the threads hold in the stainless portion.

It really needs the plates, originally I had planed to attach the hinges directly to the case with rivets on the case and screws on the door, but after cutting enough material out to allow the hinges to work the case had lost to much structural integrity so i just cut out all of the edge so that i could use plates to stiffen the case and spread the stress from the hinges (they are spring loaded)/

It could be done entirely with screws or rivets if someone was so inclined. I went with the screws over rivets so that i could easily remove the door and welded the plates to the hinges because it was easier to keep them in alignment while welding as apposed to drilling 8 holes for each hinge.

The welds look like crap because the only metal I had lying around the right thickness and width was some very high end stainless steel, and the sheet metal the hinges are made of melts at a much lower temp than the stainless. To bond the two properly I need a tig welder, all Ive got atm is a wire welder and a arc welder its ugly but it will hold

Welcome to the CMSSC!!!

Very cool mod, and a first here in the CMSSC!

As for the lighting, is kinda tricky, the LED switch is 5V and fans have 12V LED's. You can make it work a couple ways

1. You can make a 12V circuit and run your fans off that, the down side is your fans will turn off.
2. Again you can make a 12V circuit and rewire your fans to just power your LED's, major PIA
Link to 12V circuit how to
http://www.overclock.net/t/525009/official-the-coolermaster-storm-scout-scout-ii-tbd-club/17060#post_11974926

3. You can try running the stock LED's off the switch or replace the LED's in your fan with 7V LED's and wire them to the switch, cheapest and easiest IMO

This link was for changing the stock LED's for the stock fans but you'll get the idea

You can find this links in the Tip and Tricks link on the OP if you need them later

Thanks for the links, I think I will go the relay route, might be a while until I get to radio shack tho. I guess I am going to have to clean up the wiring before i get a chance to put new LEDs in.
