I never used one of those H50's. I wouldn't mine having one just for test & compair.
OK, I just got done reading some reviews on the 'NE'>newegg. It holds a 5 star for
product. I'd really have to see it in action for my-self.

It's not an opinion . I'll find proof if I have time.

It's fine as long as the hard drive isn't too hot, too cold or isn't fluctuating.

Posted by: Stormblitz Hey guys, I've been following this thread for a while now. Seeing all the nice builds, I've decided to pick a scout up when it was on sale at my local shop. Coming from an Antec 902, I switched to the scout and all i can say is the scout looks more beast. There were a few minor drawbacks, the scout is a little more cramped compared the 902 and cable management was a little tougher. I also had to cut the latch off my 8pin power cable because the top fan was in the way. Overall the scout is much easier to use, especially when swapping hard drives. Here is my system:


Nice Rig. Use those HD bays!!!! Nice. That's what I need to do; stack up some HD's.

My wife just found me one of these at the Thrift store for fifty buck. I can't wait to see it.



Its a Stacker 830 Nvidia Edition.

I will post pictures when she gets home..


Well here is the deal
There are no Fans in the case.
No fan Panel on the side
4 mesh bay covers missing from the front.
And the hard drive bay system at the bottom missing.

All in all. For 50 bucks its not bad. Now to scout for parts. If anyone has any ideas please add.

yea I just hope I dont have to put a hundred dollars in parts in it .. but I love the old stacker cases.. Especially the Nvidia series because it doesnt have the mesh front it just has slits in it.. Very nice. or at least I hope it will be. She also found an AGP 9200 for 4.98. I told her to get that too.

There is a huge difference between my pc and a server farm. IT guys go nuts for cooling. One of my tenants has nearly 30 tons of cooling for a server room that is 20x12. Also, I have had a few hdd's fail due to over heating. So I choose to disregard this info and keep my hdds cool.

You can't really do much more than the case allows you to...you could push/pull your hdd cage with 2 140s and I think that'd be it.

I've had one HDD fail on my from click of death but that was when I had a terrible raidmax case with bad airflow...I never see HDD temps above 37c in this case and am sure my HDDs won't fail from overheating. It's not like I feel that HDD temps are petty to the point where I'd take out my fans. I'd just rather not sacrifice keeping other components cooler to keep my HDD's cooler.
