I suppose it would depend on the size of the mobo as to where it met the cage.

From what the specs say and also from what i've seen of the scout 2 so far, the HDD cage splits in two, so you can take the top half of the cage off and still have the other half for your drives, that's why one of the bigger selling points for the new scout are that it can fit the modern larger high end video cards tongue.gif

The only thing with loop order is make sure the res is before the pump. It helps to have the res above the pump to feed it liquid when filling the loop, but it doesn't have to be. You'll probably have to tip the case when filling if it isn't.

I srsly love how that looks and is built. Where'd you get the materials for it? I would love to do some modifications to the inside of my Scout that looked half as good as that!

Wow! I wish I lived in Charlotte lol. I just could not get my cable management decent, it drove me nuts to try to get those cords up and around the back side in my scout. I ended up just bundling and getting as much out of sight from side panel view hopefully preserving decent airflow.
