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?
its always best to completely dissemble a computer case and prep each piece properly then paint them, this will yield the best results. as for just removing the hard drive cage and preping that and then the case in one piece it would work and be easier but might not look as good as it could possibly look. and the scout is held together with two types of rivets, flush and dome cap that are both 1/8 inch. which makes the case relatively easy to take pieces out paint them and then rivet them back in.

I guess your right. Also, your English is not as bad as you think.

I would love to take the entire case apart to do each piece separately. I would probably need to own a rivet gun though, right? I may be able to use a hammer if the rivets are reusable after removal.

It would be pretty hard to get a hammer into some of those tight spots, I would think. You could just get some nuts and bolts, too. I've seen that done before and it looks pretty good. You'd have to get some with low profile heads though. Wouldn't want them contacting anything they shouldn't, or just getting in the way.

But pop rivet guns are fairly cheap anyhow. Harbor Freight has them for as little as $5. If you don't plan on using it every day, I'd say just get a cheap one and get more rivets than you need to make up for the ones the cheap gun messes up. thumb.gif

EDIT: The $5 gun on that page comes with 100 assorted rivets in 4 sizes and a lifetime warranty, surprisingly...

yeah you would need a pop rivet gun but you can pick one up for about 15$ which to do it right isnt too bad

Looks like that V8 just barely fit in the case. Excuse the size guys but some people need to see shots like this to work out measurements.

I'm installing a CM V8 on an ASRock Extreme4 Motherboard, in a new system I'm building. I haven't got the V8 yet, it should be here next Tuesday, but I have the rest of my components. I've been really worried about whether or not it's going to fit in my COOLER MASTER Storm Scout Case. This picture makes me feel a little better about it. smile.gif Can you tell me what, if any problems you had installing this beast and any tips you might have for making installing it easier? I've heard it's a pain in the arse to install, but man does it ever look good in that case, Kudos!

This is my setup:

CM Storm Scout Case
ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Intel Core i5-3570K
COOLER MASTER V8 CPU Cooler
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB)
MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 2GB
128GB SATA III SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series SSD
SATA III 7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda 500GB
ASUS Black Blu-ray Burner SATA BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS
ASUS VH238H Black 23" Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor
Sony SRSD4 2.1 Desktop Speaker System
Logitech MK710 Wireless Keyboard & Mouse

Hmmmm.... Too much DiNoc for my tastes. But it looks pretty spiffy. I like the way you mounted the rads. thumb.gif
post #27649 of 28613
That is one unique way to fit two rads in a storm scout haha! Looks insane man thumb.gif
post #27650 of 28613

Edit: Unless ur talking about Bovi and in that case i will shut up.
