Touche...

I like it, but I'd never buy one, and would probably never use it if I was given/won one. I like the old fashioned cases. I'm still completely satisfied with my SS, and have yet to find a reason to move on to anything else. Though the SS2 is shmexy.

If you check my build log you will see that I have around 6.5 or 7mm clearance between the backplate and the card itself. Also there is a serious amout on airflow inside the case. I just checked the temp on the backplate and its cold to the touch even after a 7 hour stress test (I overclocked to 4.5GHz and currently running a 15-20 hour stress test)
I know this is just the cpu but my max temps at 100% load for a 2500k i5 are: 72° 81° 78° 74° pretty happy with them smile.gif http://www.overclock.net/t/1390899/build-log-cm-storm-scout-2-otsim#post_19996314

I'm just waiting on my cable sleeving so I can redo all visible cables white and red and considering painting the gpu, psu and hdd bay cover white?

Anyone have any thoughts on what I should do next Ihave ran outta ideas frown.gif and ddon't forget this build is on a VERRRRY tight budget!

just spitballing here.. but how about drilling some holes in the gpu backplate to form some kind of honey comb grill? it'd look cool and would be less risky too, or you could cut out some lines a few mm in width going along the length of the backplate tongue.gif

Sadly I wish I had that option as I have no drill or no money to get a drill frown.gif I might try steal one for a few minutes when I visit my parents next but it wont be for a long time frown.gif
Im thinking about getting one made up in acrylic. There is a company here in Ireland that does very cheap acrylic cutting and delivers anywhere to smile.gif

Hello, I'm soon to be a member of this club. This is my Storm Scout and houses the first ever computer I've built (in Feb.). I also have a question. I'm going to be painting the case white, would it be easier to remove the hdd cage to paint it and the rest of the interior?

Looks great, fuXdFace. I wish my blue LED light strip would shine that bright through my side window.

"Allan P" LED light strip, will more appropriate because it would not close your components, and the cheaper you will get. Sorry for bad English I am from Bulgaria.
