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!

Nice ^^ Same Mobo and ram (4gbmore but that will be fixed next month) as me. Looks like a great setup but i would have taken the 750HX instead just for safety

I just put together a second scout the other day and already plan on tearing it apart this weekend. I want to cut 2 4.5 inch holes for the fans like my signature rig, go with all R-4 fans (green since I already have them) and replace my V-8 with the Corsair H50, I know with the AMD 550BE I don't need the H50, but it looked so cool!

Hey guys, it's been a while!

Just thought I'd share some pics of my friends case. Looks pretty sweet with green fans, and he did a pretty awesome job with cable management!







More pics:
Custom hole for 24-pin cable
Not a single cable through the top right hole!

Sadly I don't have a good overview pic

How is that Corsair Cooler. I have always heard that the all in one setups are not so great but I have seen a lot of people with those corsairs..

I know nothing about I5 boards except they have a FSB on the NB instead of on the Chip like the I7

Isnt that an AMD board though? I though he was going with an i5. Doh, maybe i misunderstood.

Reviews are pretty much universally good on it. Some debate on whether it beats the top end air coolers but it's keeping my system plenty cool and leaves a ton more room in the case. Bought mine on sale at BB for $60, can be had for a little less at Fry's right now.
