Yup a few people have watercooling in the scout. I easy choice normally is the corsair h50...

I'll be hopefully finishing my watercooling setup in the week... just waiting on a few parts to come in the mail.

pump > res > 240mm rad > 120mm rad > cpu > pump

It's going to be a tight tight squeeze with the 240mm, if it's too much of a tight squeeze, i'll opt for 2x 120mm rads



Meh, no one had stock of either the 5850's or 5870's yesterday, so i ended up getting 2x 5770's instead. They're not too bad cards, but I think I'll eventually swop them out for 5850's/5870's.

I got all the parts for my mates rig...

955
4gb ddr3
2x500gb
cm sniper dragon (had him set on the scout, but he opted for the sniper dragon when he saw it, lol)
cm v8
2x4890 Vapor X
asus 785 evo something board
24" 1080p viewsonic
razer salmosa
700w psu
blu ray/dvdrw

came in just over $1700

wat do you guys think about water cooling in this case, has it been done by anyone here?
It has been done yes, also depends on what kind of rad you're planing on fiting, im gonna get WC soon with a tripple rad up front and it will require some modding, but you can probably fit a 240 rad without modding too much ,

There's almost always room on the side unless you're using like a V8 or some other massive cooler

Hehe, it was indeed.

I tried not to spend too much as well...i was fairly good.

But gawd, the people were spending left, right and center there. One chick walked away with a i7 975, 3x 24" viewsonics, 4x 2tb hdds and a couple of other things total sickness.

But the icing on the cake was 2 guys bought that Thermaltake level 10 thing, meh i think it looks crap and...bought 2x xfx 5970's black editions...insane.

It's a pity no-one has any 5850's or 5870's

actually the 5770 in Crossfire is making some real numbers with the gamers.. And Trip Crossfire is insane fast for them and all three will work on a 750 Corsair PSU..

They certainly run better than the gtx 260's i had previously, i could see immediately, and both of them cost together cost less than one gtx 260 when I bought it a while back.

I probably would have gone with 3 or 4 5770's but alas i don't have a 3x/4x pci 16x mobo...

I'm pretty sure three of them will work on a 500W corsair.

they will on idle but you want to give yourself about 20 percent of full load for stressing. I bought my 1000 Watt so I wouldn't need to think of PSUs again. I used to have to buy one everytime I upgraded. Not anymore. And it only uses what you need.
