It works if you put either the radiator or the fans on the outside of the case. What I did was that I replaced the fans with some slim 120x120x12 mm fans. That way I could put it all inside the case. Will post pictures of it later.

Video editing and other intensive tasks = GTX680
Gaming or 3 monitors = 7970 (better value for money, particularly if you get the GHz edition)
Also, have you considered GTX670? Around the same price as the 7970 and can be overcklocked to GTX680 speed

hey have any of you guys gotten really good results with spray painting plexiglass?

i found a bunch of 1/4inch plexi and have some ideas for it but wanted to see if any of you have done it before i go ahead and do it.

First time poster.....Greetings everyone!

I just purchased a new pc from CyberPower with the Storm Scout 2 case. This pc is going to be my main work pc at home. Its going to ship the first week in February. The reason for the purchase is to replace my almost 7 year old Dell tower.

The thought was to get a new, fast machine in a cool case that allowed for some modification down the road... basically I want a "hot" (for me) ..... regular pc... and this was the direction I went... With that I have some questions ... but first this is what the rig is....

Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 (black)
Motherboard - ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
Intel i5 - 3570K
Corsair Vengeance DDR3/1600 mhz 8gb.
Corsair CX500 V2 80 Plus Certified PS
24x Double Layer Dual Format DVD/CD drive
Asetek 510LC Liquid cooling with 120mm rad and 20dBa fan.

Flash Media Internal 12 in 1 reader/writer
240GB Intel 335 Series Sata-III 6.0gb SSD drive
2nd fan: Enermax Maximum 120mm (500-1200 rpm) TB Silence Black Twister Bearing 8-14 dBA

Video: Nvidia GEForce GT 610
Professional wiring
Sound absorbing foam on side, top and bottom...
No overclocking
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, Microsoft Office Student.

Basic keyboard and mouse.. whatever came by default.

My thought was to get good core pieces just to get going and then address the power supply, keyboard, mouse, any extra fans and misc. pieces.... I have 2 hdd drives from the Dell that can transfer over once everything is stable... The motherboard comes with an onboard DVI... the only reason I got the Nvidia GEForce was because it didn't look like I could delete it for credit... it was the cheapest card offered...

I have a multi monitor set up at home and am using the PNY NVS 440 (nvidia chipset) 4 port video card... sot that will transfer over once the new pc is stable...

My questions are:

How am I doing so far?

If I want to add an additional fan would you recommend adding it to the front, the side door, or the bottom? I was thinking the bottom shooting air up... so one from the front... one from the bottom and the exhaust venting off the Asetek...

If the side door fan openings are not going to be used ... would you recommend closing them off somehow or just leaving them alone...?

IF I get one more fan after I get the PC... that would be 2 intake and 1 exhaust... If I have the Asetek 510LC ... and I want to "gently" overclock the 3570k 10-20% .... would this cooling setup be able to accomodate it... I'm not looking at setting any overclocking records... just crank it up a little to get the best performance I can with no (little) chance of frying anything...

Think thats it for now... Thanks... This forum is awesome... can't believe the amount of traffic on here...

the new pc will be in a room where the ambient temperature will be consistently 70 F if that matters...

i wanted to plaint the outside matte black and ive been finding that if i use a 220 then 300, self etching primer then the matte black, with a matte clear over that. so ill probably take my time and do that.

sand blast the inside, it's really cheap and easy, and you can't beat the results:
