If they're going to do this, why don't they just call them Athlon IIIs? rolleyes.gif

I bought the CM Scout 2 and installed it today. Great case an absolute beast to look at. My only little concern is the led fan, I would have hoped it would be a 4pin PWM fan as it is quite loud. Is this the normal for scout 2?

so all of the rivets have been taken out of my scout and ive started taking measurements on the new motherboard tray im going to make as well as making the front completely smooth and fitting this in the with .3 of an inch to play with so this will be fun getting compression fittings on without busting some knuckles. http://www.swiftech.com/mcrx20-qp-radiator-series.aspx it will be the triple with a res

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...


Alright, thanks. I'll be getting a rivet gun and rivets in a few weeks. Started applying primer to one of the side panels today and boy are those raised corners a pain to get coated enough to not show up after wet sanding,

Have you painted your Storm Scout? If so, do you have any advice?

Again, I appreciate the reply.

I haven't painted mine, but was planning to for a while, and did a TON of research, both on OCN and all over the web. And, I've done a lot of painting on other things like model cars, and interior parts of real cars as well as other random stuff.

Best tips I can give:

Set up a line outside or wherever you are painting to hang parts from while you paint so you don't have to move them to get all sides.

Don't use cheap paint! This is a HUGE one. Cheap paint will give you cheap results.

Buy a spray can trigger.

Buy all the paint you will need at the same time, at the same store. The same color and brand of paint may vary from batch to batch.

I've taken your advice for a line. It's much easier now to paint stuff with it hanging from our clothes line.

I've actually considered getting a spray can trigger, my fingers hurt after awhile today and ended up painting my finger tips white.

I wish I could buy it all at once but I'm kind of poor (college student with no classes for a month) and doing surveys to buy on amazon. I'm using Rust-Oleum paint (great paint for my needs), I did not think about the fact that the same color and brand of paint may vary from batch to batch. Thanks.

I painted the plastic parts for far. Need to give some parts more paint and fix part around the front panel near USB's and etc since I messed it up. Does it look too bad in it's current state? Most of the case will be white in the end. Just found out today that 3.5" device thing for 5.25" bay can be used for my hard drive. smile.gif

Doesn't look too bad. Will look much better when it's done. thumb.gif

The trigger is WELL worth the investment.

Repainted the cover things inside my case white and finally finished them! Pretty happy with the results now I just have to get my white cable sleeving and one more red led fan biggrin.gif

Is it really impossible to mount an h100i without the fans or radiator outside the case? I'm not considering the front mounting as I don't have any plans as of now to the serious modding yet.

Also which setup would you prefer a single high end gpu or a middle tier sli? Taken that they cost almost the same and trade blows with performance. Before I was torn with a 670 or 650 TI boost sli. But with the arrival of 700s. I was thinking if that trend would still apply.
