Greetings! I've been following this thread for a few months now, and I've had my Storm Scout case for about two weeks. I was just waiting on the Black Friday sale to order my parts, and everything is in the mail and should arrive by next Tuesday. I can barely contain my excitement!
The first thing I did when I received my new case was take it apart and make some measurements. After I decided on the components and setup, I cut out the steel part of the blowhole grill, leaving the plastic grill alone. Also, I cut some square holes around the motherboard so that I can better route cables. The holes were cut so that they just peak around the outside edge, with the majority of the hole covered by the motherboard. This way, I can easily pass the cable heads through, bolt down the motherboard, and leave just enough room for the cable itself around the edge. Cable management, ninja style!
I also gave all the red LED fans to my brother, and purchased 3 black non-led fans for the front, back and blowhole, as well as 2 transparent non-led fans for the side panel. I will be adding LEDs internally next month, and they will be controlled by the stealth button on the top panel. This will be a Blue Storm Scout for sure!
Components: MSI p55-GD65, Intel i5-750, Corsair Hydro H50 cooler, Corsair 650HX power supply, 8GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600, 2 Sapphire Radeon HD 5750's in Crossfire, 2 WD RE3 250GB HDD's in RAID0, and a NZXT Sentry LX fan controller!
