I just bought the Scout 2 [black] and it arrived today. I've been quite delirious about it and the idea of building my first computer. I've put together a list of parts and would be very grateful for a little guidance. I have to admit I'm driven as much by aesthetics as by performance so the Zalman CNPS12X is almost only for looks [lucky for me it has great reviews]. I'm not to sure about the compatibility of everything. I look forward to your advice good Sir's [and Ma'am's]. Please don't be too scathing. I am just a beginner.

My - maybe build.
CPU Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core $219.98
CPU Cooler Zalman CNPS12X Ball Bearing $69.99
Motherboard Asus SABERTOOTH Z87 ATX LGA1150 $234.99
Memory Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 $204.99
Storage Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" SSD $132.67
Western Digital 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM $196.99
Video Card Gigabyte Radeon R9 280X 3GB $299.99
Sound Card Asus Xonar Essence STX $164.99
Case Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 (Black) ATX Mid Tower

$105.99
Power Supply PC Power & Cooling 850W ATX12V $99.99
Optical Drive Asus BW-14D1XT Blu-Ray/DVD/CD Writer $94.98

Total: $1825.55

[Oh and what fans would fit my build? Everything I tried was rejected as incompatible. Thanks, and sorry if this is in the wrong place].

Welcome! What is the main use for the PC, gaming, rendering, photo editing? If yes to the last two, make sure the programs you use will be support the GPU. Are you going to OC? If not you don't need a K CPU. Does the Blu-ray drive come with software? I hope so for that price. Everything everyone said sounds good. Fan sizes can be found on page 1.

Hmmmm the far right usb 2 port on my Scout 2 is going bad, even the slightest knock/cable movement when something is plugged into it and it disconnects whatever i've got connected to it, not impressed at all! and on top of that my new 7870 needs to be rma'd, and the cpu over heat protection i setup in core temp kicked in a few nights back and shut my rig down, so think my H70 is going bad too! they say things come in 3's right... could be worse i guess lol

I would check that the header is plugged in fully still, and for the h70 I would reapply TIM and remount first.

neither of what you just said would cause the problems lol, if the header wasn't plugged in fully, the other usb 2 port would also show issues, and the fact that slight movement makes devices disconnect in the faulty port kinda rules out the header being the culprit, but it was the first thing i checked before i even posted. the cooler issue is likely a failing pump or a glitch in core temp.

if the cooling plate+pump combo needed a thermal paste reapply and a remount then i'd be seeing some seriously worrying temperatures, at windows startup the cpu was at 19*C, and as of right now the cpu is idle at 27*C after a 30 minute warm up, in games and such i see around 35-40*C, and i also ran prime 95 for an hour on the day the shut down happened and the highest i saw was 45*C.

i was asleep when the shutdown happened, i only knew it was coretemp that started the shutdown process because as soon as i got into windows, i trawled through the event viewer logs and saw the shutdown event and the process that initiated it. it's worth noting that the H70 is now around 3 years old and it's had one hell of a buttload of usage, i didn't post because i was asking for help, i posted more as a discussion topic for the most part, and also to see if anyone else has had issues with the usb ports on the front of the scout 2 tongue.gif:thumb:

Thanks GoodInk. I want a gaming machine but I wont be overclocking the sh#t out of it. The Blu Ray was just the best out of what seemed like a pitiful range of choices on pcpartpicker . I'll find a better one elsewhere. Thanks for the headsup about GPU compatibility, will do some more research.
