You can put a HDD in the lower drive bay or if you have an SSD or 2 SSDs you can buy a backplane & put it on the lower drive instead of the HDD similar to what I did.

Also, here is some questions:

1: Which way would be best to put the power supply, fan up or down?
2: I have already asked what would be some good fans for the case, one that a couple agreed on was the Corsair fans. Are there any more?
3: I wonder if Cooler Master sales a filter that can go on the bottom fan mount?

1. Really doesn't matter, I like them down but if the stupid power ratings are showing I'll flip it.
2. If you want some LED fans CM sells the Trooper's 120 that I believe has the same LED connector for the Scout 2. Link
3. I'm hoping so, I just looked in their store and they don't have anything for the Scout 2 yet.

Did you fill out the Members List? I went to update it for you but I'm not seeing you on there.

The hell...why ??

they are just blocking the air flow... :/

Koniu I dont have the tools...neither the talent to cut xD

The only reason besides cost I can think of is for strength. Just like the first Scout they made this thing to take a beating.

Also, would any of you know about any fan controllers that work with 4 pin pwm fans? I tried rewording my search a few times and still nothing. Just curious if they even exist at this point....

Any will but you will loss the PWM control and just use voltage control.

So I can just plug a pwm fan into the 3 pin connector thats on most fan controllers and it should still work as long as it has enough voltage?

You should as long as they don't have a plug that blocks it, look because some do. You can even connect them to the MB fan headers too. The 4th wire(blue) is just the PWM signal, the other 3 are:12v(red), ground(black), and RPM(yellow) signal. Be warned some CPU header only control PWM fans, but any 3 pin header will control a PWM fan.

Thank you very much for clearing that up. Everything I looked up was just a bunch of useless mumbojumbo. Just out of fan connectors to use on my MB and Im just kinda tired of having my cougar and lepa fans running and full speed all the time. Gets kinda loud when you cram 9 fans into this case.

I updated that last post with a 5 way connector that pulls power from the PSU so you don't overload your header.

how easy would it be to get in there with a Dremel to cut out the Rivets?
