Well.....The Panzerbox has a removable motherboard tray and has next to no clearance between the motherboard tray and the right side panel. And....doing cable management in there wouldn't look good because of PSU placement. It's still a great case regardless.

I flipped mine around too. It didn't drop 5c but I was cooler, more noticably in high temp situations. I was playing assassins creed earlier and it dropped my average temp in game from about 65 to 60 which is pretty good. And it's really going to help when I decide to put 2 gpu's in there because one of the gpu's would be hanging right over the power supply. Thanks for the tip dkev!

Well maybe in the next revision they will add some cable management.

I looked at the Panzer article. For a Cheap crappy NZXT case it had a lot of features and was well thought out. The Idea of them putting enough room on the top for a radiator was a stunner for me. NZXT has always had really pretty Cases, but they have always been in the ultra Cheapo quality department. I am not saying this with this case though. I thought the vented slot covers and the finger screws holding them was something that the New Version of the Scout should have. Also the access to the Cpu from the back is a good thing but the Xigmatec Beats it in the Wire management Department but that window needs a Dremmel. the Lian Li Dragon lord has also surpassed the scout in the Quality dept. but I still think that the Scouts Jerry can look is familiar and nice. The window Shape is great. All of them have learned that the Scout is a benchmark to try to achieve. Front access to USB and E Sata. as well as sound jacks. Lots of air flow and a medium foot print. They all have the winning edge on some but the Scout is the Forefather of all that is coming after it. There must be something to the Scout that has the other case makers tring to make a better one. I think it is because the Scout Rules.

Ok, so I finally got around to trying to make the cables neater on this case.

Everything is half-decent, EXCEPT for my 24 pin and my 8 pin! Anyone have any tips to sneak the 8 pin or 24 pin around?

Pictures of my current wiring (I know it kinda sucks, first time trying this out):


And I'm not the only guy that has to completely force/jam on my back panel after you're done with cable management?

I agree 100%. I made some minor fan changes to quiet my pc down. Re installed the 140 in front of the drive bay. Since it is relegated to keeping my hdd cool It's a good spot for it. With the perf. steel, the R4's are too noisy in lower front and standard exhaust port. So I installed a lower RPM CM fan on the back exhaust. Left the R4's on the side panel and the 5.25 bay. Really helped quiet it down with fans at full RPM. So I may put a 140 with decent cfm in the 5.25. I am also contemplating putting one on the side panel. Ill have to make the blow hole bigger obviously.
These are the fans I am looking at. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=26378

I am still deciding if I want to upgrade my DK hsf. I will change my mind a dozen times from now to next month. Welcome to my world.

On another note, a poor sap on another thread is trying to oc his AMD 965 with this


Needless to say he is having a hard go of it. God bless him.

I have the same PSU as you and before I modded mine, I had a Storm Scout so I know for a fact that you can fit the 8 pin wire behind the motherboard tray and through the CPU HSF retention bracket hole. However...to make it fit, you'll need to remove the top fan and motherboard then put the top fan back in after it's plugged in. Also, I managed to squeeze my 24 pin power through the top hole where all of the front I/O wires go through. My side panel was kind of hard to get back on the first time but I got used to it quickly and learned how to do it

You can probably run the 24pin and 8/4pin around the back of the motherboard and see if it reaches.

Also you can run the 8/4pin under the graphics card.

The back of my motherboard is chocker block full of cables and takes a lot of pressure and effort to close the side panel

But if no one can see it and looks nice and pretty from the front, it's all good


The back of mine



The front

8 pin isnt long enough to go under my graphics card, may grab a longer extension and try to route it behind the motherboard.
24 pin, even it its long enough the back panel definitely wont be able to close with that im thinking of drilling some extra holes in this case.

Treacherous Intellect

Nice stuff ! newegg is the bomb, fast shipping great stuff. always take my business to them!
