I may want to set my scout up in a similar fashion. I've been thinking of putting in a closed loop water cooler because the Hyper 212 just looks so ugly. And I'm also too lazy to go for the effort of a real custom loop.

Thank you kindly! its the H70. Beautiful thing about the scout is the mesh front cover... so air can still get though, So i can mount it there and get a clean looking case! its HIDEOUS when mounted up top or in the back speically if youre running push/pull fans (which i am). The rad just sits here with no issues (its heavy enough with the fans to not move or vibrate) but you can also throw a piece of two way tape on the botton of the rad and set it on top of the CD-rom)

I'm taking out the H70 for a actual water cooling loop! I ordered parts yesterday and I already had a dual 120mm rad laying around... I'll post pics of the rad soon biggrin.gif

No, I had an EVGA SLI LE x58 board. And we had a power surge about a month an a half ago, i guess the whole board wasn't really fried, but it got the memory controller... so the board is useless.

I'm still using my EVGA X58 SLI LE after more than 3 years, never had a problem - although I haven't had any power surges either!

You can get a B-stock of it for $79.99 or the X58 SLI3 for $89.99 with a one-year warranty direct from EVGA here:

http://www.evga.com/Products/ProductList.aspx?type=8

I've been thinking of picking up the latter as it has 2 x SATA III and 2 x USB 3.0 added to the features of the SLI LE.

That, and the fact that the PCIe slot configuration is different so that I wouldn't need a 8+ expansion slot case and a 120mm long SLI connector to space out my SLI GTX580 and still keep them both on x8 slots.

Since my rig plays current games pretty damn well - I don't see the point in upgrading until we know what pricing and other details will be on what comes after Haswell.

I have easily O/C'd my Scout rig's CPU to 3.8GHz, but can't O/C my GPUs because of excessive heat in their current "sandwiched" positions.

Now that SATA III 240 & 480 SSDs are so much cheaper I could replace my SATA II Corsair Force 120GB and get better speed there, too.

Haswell might be the only thing that can turn me to 'Dark Side'

Here she is... smile.gif Storm Scout water cooled biggrin.gif

Hey guys!
New scout reporting in, I have this case for two years now - I love it!
Here are some pictures I took with my phone ( the quality is pretty low, it's my phone tongue.gif) :

Powered by Gigabyte!


As you can see, there is a 140mm fan in above the stock 140mm fan, It's the upper 140mm fan that I put there - you will know in a few sec wink.gif


This is how my system looked like a couple of minutes ago!


And now! Yes, that is a Noctua NH D14 installed smile.gif

It also fits in with the side panel on!



I cut a bit of the front cover's rings, looks good now imo.

I have been using the Noctua NH D14 for a lil while now, it's great.
I get idle temperatures of 23-26, and on full load I get 45 temperatures, note that I only ran prime95 (blend) for 30 minutes- so I believe the temps can get higher.

@esberelias That's one awesome build biggrin.gif

In this one you can see my temp etape support.

in the future ill add white/combo blue sleeving. Something to cover the ugly yellow psu sticker along with a few white leds. Further in the future I will add a full loop to this setup. Just not sure if ill use this case for it. (Need inspiration)
