Works great! It keeps my 955 nice and cool, it's one of the best air coolers money can buy.

This is the best I can do with Playah's rig picture till he sends us one without the Fuzz.. LOL

Welcome to the Club. Hey ask HubWub about wire management. That Scout can tell you what to do with what you got.. That Scout took the wire management NCO course.

Ok, here's some ideas, some may work, some may not. I do now see why having a 1000W power supply gave me an advantage. I got one of those "silent" editions, this means it has a massive fan underneath, and a regular size out the back of the case. What it also meant was it's thinner and that leave a little gap between the P/S and backplane, pull yours out and see if there's room there, if there is you can pass some wires behind the P/S, out the hole there, behind the back, out behind the mobo and into the mobo connectors. Use teeny little zip strips to hold them to the nearest place that they'll clip to, then snip them off with wire cutters.
For your 24 pin plug, there's a hole right there where the P/s is, run it out it, behind the backplane and around the side right next to where it plugs in. It takes a bigger zip strip for that one. Without the bottom drive cage, there's not much in the way of hidey holes for your SATA cables, but you can pull from where they meet the drive and between the cage and the backplane, be careful if you zip strip them because it's easy to cut into them, then lay them sideways against the metal and do the twist to put on the back panel. Go to page, I think it's 99 on this thread and you'll see pics of my backplane.
If you need more specifics, tell me what's buggin you most and I'll try to look at it to see if can be hidden. Oh, one more tip, if you get black SATA cables, they aren't as visible in a black case, they're cheap too.

Man I just can't get the sig line to show right, little help with that if ya'll please.

use [PXP] in the front of the line and [/PXP] at the end... Replace the X with an H. it was the only way I could get it on here without it doing the above. basically you put the PHP in the hard brackets and it will show. Dont forget the / forward slash on the ending PHP Like this... /PHP in the hard Brackets

Micro Center has this sale on the Scout case, $59 but with my 5% off coupon it came to $56 so I bought it, the plan is to use this scout for my 550 BE cpu. Not to sure what mods I'll do yet but I thought I throw a couple of ideas out and see what you guys think.
I put a 120mm fan in the rear of the 5.25 bay with a flow director and slanted it slightly aiming the air flow at the gpu, the other thing I am thinking of is add a 140mm fan at the bottom between the psu and the hdd cage aiming the air up, I'm thinking since the air flow is blocked somewhat from the hdd and cage the 140mm fan will give it a boost, I also want to add some acrylic covering the top of the psu to the hdd cage with a hole cut in it for the 140mm fan, it will give things a nice Reflective look and hide the cables.
Hi, I have a comment about putting a fan pointing up while blocking out the air from the hdd cage. I don't know about that, if you look at the engineers design of the airflow pattern, the air comes from front, bottom through the P/S and out the top and back fans. In addition, if you get the grille panel, you can add 2 fans there that nicely cool of the main parts including the vid card and cpu/northbridge. If you do what you're saying it could (that's possibly), either take air away from the intake of the P/S making it hot, or, worse, if the P/S fan isn't strong enough it could actually draw heat from the P/S itself and blow it into the main body of the rig.
How to know? Some electronics stores have these battery powered thermometers (about $12-) with a long cable running to the temp sensor. Get one, test temps inside with the sensor, do what you want, test again, then decide. This is how big builder companies find out if thier case mods will help or hurt.

Anyone got any good ideas on how to secure a 80mm fan in the pci slots over the Graphics card other than wire ties? Removing the covers not cutting the smal splitters in between the covers

Edit: and i feel honored to have my rig posted twice on the first page
