If you will need the space within the next year or so, yes. I have one of the WD Black 1TB's and a Green in my media server. The green has been running for years without a problem, and the black is almost a year old now.

Black HDD need to be better then greens so, I have two greens in my system and the 1tb runs for 2 years, the second is running for about 1 6/12 years with no problems.

No jinxing

Hey guys,
Just came across this site when I was looking for some pics of the CM Storm Scout, saw some awesome mods.

Just wanted to share my Scout with it slight mods to keep things happy and cool tongue.gif








I started chopping to get a Sapphire 7970 ghz edition fitted, and then the radiator, and then i was like, well its chopped already so lets chop some more and placed a small 70mm fan too cool of the cpu socket from behind, blowing on the motherboard. That last mod actually reduced the socket temps by 15C rolleyes.gif

I was going to buy another case at first since the Scout just doesn't have all features, but now its all good and i'm happy smile.gif

that depends on everything else in your rig ive seen them fit but only some motherboards have the right spacings for the thicker rad

Hey guys quick question.

Was thinking about getting a scout 2 for the gf, I have a storm trooper already and love the cm storm series. Her scout would he air cooled for now but is it possible to fit a xspc 240 kit in the scout?

Thanks for any info.

I've been running 2 of the 1TB Caviar Blacks for over 3yrs - not a single problem to report. Good stuff, there...

So did a little mod to the side panel window, here are some pics



Special allen screws to give it a little industrial feel.
