Why not turn the thing off when you go to bed? or are you folding on it?

And if you don't want the hazzle of working with soldering and stuff or whatever it takes too daisychain the LEDs to the on/off switch you could prbably hook them up too a fancontroller

Maybe you're right. I should just turn it off, it saves all the trouble.

Or....you can buy non-LED fans and just use cold cathodes and wire the front switch for that.

I know you have probably all heard these concerns before, but I will end up asking them again and I am sorry. I love my CM Scout. Best case I have ever owned. I do have a problem though. My Top Panel is not working correctly. CM is sending me a new one as we speak (their customer service is pretty great in my opinion). My question is, has anyone had to replace this yet? If so how simple/hard did you find it? Mind you I did build this computer but if this is something that is going to take me a few hours to accomplish I want to set enough time for it.

My second question being is this. Right now (as my computer is still pretty new) I still have the stock CPU cooler on it. I would really like to get the V8 (which I saw on the beginning of this thread is possible). My question is was their anything that needed to be modded to get it to fit right? It was either the V8 or the Hyper212 for me but I wanted to make sure they fit (without much hassle involved). Thanks for looking at my questions.

P.S. This is my pretty simple Rig.

Both the Mic Jack and the Case Light button no longer work. They did for a few weeks then stopped. I already checked all the connections on the Mobo but no luck.

Actually it's easy to change the cooler itself, mine came with no LED's in it and I had them add the blue. If I had my choice I'd change all the LED's to blue. Those are the only lights my case has right now but I'm probably going to put in some blue CC's.
Sorry, I just checked the OCZ site and they only come with no LED or blue. You could get the empty ones and put red LED's on top or even behind. LED fans are prettty simple, usually there is just LED's affixed with clear glue to the back of the fan struts. The ones with spinning LED's are a whole different story though.

You can put pretty much any HSF you want in it. But you wont be able to put a top side panel fan in. There isn't enough clearance. Nice set up by the way. Just a suggestion but cable management is pretty easy with this case. The main 24pin can be ran behind the mobo tray. Not that it's bad or anything.
