a 120mm and 140mm, it comes with just a normal 3 pin connector for power that i attached to the motherboard. but the 2 pin led fan, i plugged into the 2 pin front led switch on the case. the 2 pin wire started smoking and melted, i have no idea why this would have happened,

i have 2 other red led fans, where they have a 4 pin molex connector for power (only 2 pins present of the 4), and a similar 2 pin cable for the led, and these work fine.

any ideas?

thanks,
b

just in case anyone runs into this problem. my issue was that the fans came with a little 2 pin plug loop, this is not supposed to be plugged into power as i thought, and the front switch on the case supplies 5volts.

Q: How do I connect my Spectre LED/Spectre Pro LED/Spectre Pro PWM LED cables?
There are two cables attached to the fan.
1) There is a 3 pin or 4 pin cable that will connect to your corresponding power source (molex, motherboard, fan controller). This will provide power to the fan blades and to the LED
2) The 2 pin cable has an attached cable loop. This cable is to turn on/off your LED's at your convenience. Do not plug it into a power source as there will be an electrical short and will burn your fan and cables. You can also attach this loop to our Hydra Pro fan controller for on-the-fly LED on/off.

hope this helps someone and prevents fires or other craziness! i consider myself lucky to have not damaged any other components or worse!

not too shabby, would like to see the gunmetal!
post #27183 of 28613
The gun metal grey one is actually the cheaper option, my midnight black one cost me a little bit more, i'm confused about how the HDD led's work, and the motherboard stand offs it came with just span when i tried to tighten the motherboard screws in, so i had to redo that part when i was doing my build.. other than that, i'm actually really impressed with the new scout! but gun metal grey looks kinda meh to me

Actually according to Cooler Master they are releasing the CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced in all 3 colors White, Midnight Black, and Gunmetal. They look exactly like the current Storm Scout 2's being as they are the exact same. The only difference is the CM Scout 2 Advanced Editions come with 2 additional front intake fans(they listened to their "Fans" and put more "Fans" in the case) along with an extra SSD mounting bracket. The price is increased about $15 from what I've read for these additions.

So in short, you will be able to buy either the current Storm Scout 2's with their one 120mm exhaust and one SSD mounting bracket in Midnight Black and Gunmetal, or buy the Storm Scout 2 Advanced Edition with 3 120mm fans and two SSD mounting brackets in Arctic White, Midnight Black, and Gunmetal. Both versions will be available at certified retailers.

Fair enough smile.gif but in that i don't see much of a difference, apart from the addition of an extra colour choice, i'm happier using my own fans, and i don't plan on getting an ssd for a long time, so for me, the original scout 2 is just fine, and keeping a white case white is a major pita, you just have to look back into the 90's and remember all the cream off white desktop cases and keyboards heh.

Was the first thing that entered my head smile.gif a white scout 1 or 2 does look nice, but i can't imagine it staying nice for very long without constant over the top cleaning! tongue.gif

I'm kinda driving myself crazy with this.. i've searched the crap out of google, and i've tried searching this thread too.. what is the deal with the Scout II HDD and Power LED? when i have HDD access the light flicks on and off, and obviously stays on when i'm not using the HDD, is it supposed to be like that? i know i've wired both connectors up to my board properly.. i would have thought that it would have had two individual LED's, one for power, and one for HDD, i don't like the way it is right now and i'm so going to change it when i come up with something better!

Hello, can anybody tell me if a H100 radiators fits up there with an Asus Crosshair V formula and the fans on the case?
I'm talking about the Scout II Case
Thanks
