Guys, today something horrible happened. Not THAT horrible since it didnt affect anything inside my case, but something really terrible COULD have happened. I woke up and turned my computer on as usual, and after only a few seconds i realise my entire case is FULL of white smoke, and its pouring out the holes in the sidepanel. I panicked and tried to turn it off but it wouldnt work, and finally i reached to the back of the case and cut the power.
What had happened was that my 140mm front fan had caught on fire. The entire cable had melted or something and the fan smelled really weird. Luckily the cable wasnt touching the mobo, or else it would be full of melted plastic.
Anyways, a friend of mine bought the scout as well a few days ago but replaced all his fans with green LED ones, so he gave me his 140mm fan and another 120mm. I replaced the 140mm with his and noticed it glowed alot more than mine had ever done, which makes me think it was bad from the beginning. His 120mm (which i put in the drivebay) also glows alot more than my 120mm fan, so that one is propably bad as well. Sucks.
Just thought I'd let you guys know. Also i just pulled an all-nighter so if I dont make any sense, just ask.
EDIT: Here is the cable. Pretty blurry pic but you can see the black "cover" on the red cable just... melted off:
