Not just for gaming. Livestreaming, Video Encoding, 3d Rendering, and some software compiling.

Ok, so, in my opinion, your choices are good, nothing to add/remove.

Why did they make the Scout II so ugly? frown.gif

The original Scout was a classic. I might have to find an unopened one and save it for a rainy day...

In your opinion its ugly tongue.gif the only ugly thing about it in my own opinion has to be the windowed sidepanel, the window is too small and i hate having the two 120mm fan mounts on the panel, as soon as i can find someone to do it for me i'm having those fan mounts cut out and i'm getting a full sized window in there, i just don't trust myself to cut it without ruining it tbh!

heres a few pics from some updates i did recently. sorry for the grainy pics, the first one is my christmas edition, ha. actually its just how my case has been basically since 2009, (well i have updated my graphics card, ram, and ssd along the way...)

my red case fans were clear plastic and not black, so that was bothering me so i decided to change them out for some blue led fans...

then i saw the v6 coolers in this thread and was like, that looks kinda sweet. must match, ha.

am quite happy with it for now, i think its not too bad for having bought in 2009!







and my desk area....bonus points if you can figure out what the black device is standing up on the right.... tongue.gif



not the greatest cable management ever, but 'good enough', can't see it unless you are under the desk really anyway.





anyways, i got a couple extra parts now, anyone interested in this extra cpu fan or need some red case fans? unfortunately, i only have the bracket, mounting plate and screws for the 1156 chipset, but make me an offer! otherwise its just collecting dust...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118054

i'll also throw in my 120mm and 140mm red led cooler master case fans too if interested...or just pm me if you want them really (free)

ha, yeah, there is also less than a mm clearance i'd say between the first stick of ram too, at first i thought there was no way, but i had to flex the **** out the ram stick to get it in to place and it snapped in luckily!

Sadly I'm moving my build over to a corsair 500r while I work on modding my Scout. After seeing all these mods I finally decided it was time to get down to business.
