I've had my Storm Scout for my lan rig since it came out, and I'm doing a rebuild.

I've already aquired my 3770k. I think I'm going with the MSI MPOWER Z77. I'm also getting a H80.

I searched and found out that the H80 fits and doesn't really block the top 140mm fan. I am curious if I can use the top side panel fan, or if the radiator will block it. I'm mounting the rad and both fans inside the case in place of the rear exhaust fan. I would do some measurements, but I'm in Germany and far away from my computer for a couple of weeks still.

Thanks guys!

Hmmm will an ASUS GTX680-DC2T-2GD5 fit in this case?

It is said to be 11.8" or 29.9cm

I know larger cards fit then advertised but not sure if this will fit

Not without modding. And I'm not totally sure you would be able to have fans on the side panel either as the pcb on the card is extra wide (over an inch, correct me if I'm wrong)

It would easily fit in the Storm Scout 2 simply by removing the upper HDD cage panel.

I'm going to be using the new Storm Scout 2 in my new build this January/February which I'll list below.

Yep i need a new case, tried to fit the monster card but in no way it is going to fit lol

So cool to find out there is a scout II at the moment with removable hdd rack smile.gif Im still in love with this case, from all cases i had, from cheap ones to full alu custom self made cases i like this on the most.

TBH i really do not like there is only 1 fan included, i at least expected the 140 front fan would be included.

I guess the stealth button now only works for the rear exhaust fan?

Monster card? Which one? The 670 that's in my sig rig fits perfectly fine in my Scout 1.

All Scout II's top HDD rack is removable. Fan decision was made because we (on this forum) made the decision, from what I understood. When I went from the stock 140mm to new 2x120mm fans, noticed a lot more crap getting sucked into the front filters so the stock fan hardly did anything at all except being a LED breeze blower. I haven't seen it for myself, but I believe there's a 2nd plug for the stealth button still on the Scout II.

Hes talking about that new monster sized Asus GTX 680.
post #27058 of 28613
Ah see that now back a few posts. ASUS and their oversized cards...

On the side panel, you should have plenty of clearance between the fans and GPU. Because they moved the fans down to the bottom of the panel, from what I've seen, should be enough room to fit fans on the side panel there and that GPU. Never had any issues myself as my old 6950 had copper pipes that stuck out past the side of the PCB and I could fit fans on the side there just fine.
post #27059 of 28613



I think even in the Scout 2 its going to be awfully close to the fans on the side panel. Maybe not though.
post #27060 of 28613
Has anyone done a front radiator mod on the front of this case?
I think it has a about 60mm of room so you might be able to fit
on if you mod the front to fit tubes.
