Well, I have some good news and some bad news.

The good news is, the Maximus V Formula fits fine in the Scout. Didn't run into any clearance issues whatsoever fitting the board in the case.

Now the long list of bad news:
  • Cable management has gone out the window. Can no longer put the motherboard cable behind the mobo and through the top hole as there's only enough room now for the smaller cables from the front panel and the power cable for the Blu-ray drive. It's just kind of tucked underneath my GPU right now, looking kind of bad.
  • There's a molex power connection on the bottom of my motherboard that I cannot plug in because it's pointing down and the PSU is right in the way of it fitting. Doesn't seem to be affecting anything, but might be the power connection for my SLI, so if I do get a 2nd 670, may run into issues there.
  • Because of these issues, I may have to let my Scout go and pick up a bigger case, which I'm still deciding on.
  • Seems to be an issue with the top 2 SATA ports as they are really close to the top of the HDD cage and it's difficult to plug in the ports there unless you have the smaller ended SATA cables. They're only SATA II so only my Blu-ray drive is connected to them, so kind of wasn't a big deal for me.

So for those planning on getting a Maximus V Formula with the Scout, the board fits fine, but be warned, you lose quite a bit of your cable management space.

I hate to say this guys, but I think I'm going to be leaving you around Christmas time. It's time to upgrade. The Scout has become too cramped for my liking. This is the monster of a case that I'll be upgrading to:

Her? You mean the Scout? The 820 is almost 10 inches longer and taller than the Scout. biggrin.gif

You meant Joanne! I can't believe I didn't realize that before I posted. doh.gif

The 820 is a nice case dont get me wrong. But for some reason I have always hated cases that have doors over the drives. If they made a version of that case with a more flat front and ditched the door I would be all over it. But doors just kill the aesthetic of cases for me no matter how clean it makes the front look.

Now the long list of bad news:
  • Cable management has gone out the window. Can no longer put the motherboard cable behind the mobo and through the top hole as there's only enough room now for the smaller cables from the front panel and the power cable for the Blu-ray drive. It's just kind of tucked underneath my GPU right now, looking kind of bad.
  • There's a molex power connection on the bottom of my motherboard that I cannot plug in because it's pointing down and the PSU is right in the way of it fitting. Doesn't seem to be affecting anything, but might be the power connection for my SLI, so if I do get a 2nd 670, may run into issues there.
  • Because of these issues, I may have to let my Scout go and pick up a bigger case, which I'm still deciding on.
  • Seems to be an issue with the top 2 SATA ports as they are really close to the top of the HDD cage and it's difficult to plug in the ports there unless you have the smaller ended SATA cables. They're only SATA II so only my Blu-ray drive is connected to them, so kind of wasn't a big deal for me.

So for those planning on getting a Maximus V Formula with the Scout, the board fits fine, but be warned, you lose quite a bit of your cable management space.

Any pics? We might be able to help with some outside of the box thinking plus I just want to see it biggrin.gif

Ever think of the Trooper? I know I bought one case after my Scout and missed the handle the first time I picked it up after I built it.
