Well, I fell for the price and free shipping I also ordered a Scout. I've been a Lian-Li user for years but couldn't pass up the value this time around for this one. It was either this or the Lancool K60, which would have been over $100 with shipping. Both have gotten great reviews but at this price the Scout is a steal, IMO.

It's because its an Intel socket board....

BTW- I'd change your sig asking for +reps... If a mod sees that, they might not like it.

Hmm, I've been reading more of the reviews on Newegg and I'm getting a little nervous. Would appreciate getting insight from the Scout owners here on a couple of things:
  • Is there enough room in the main cable management pass-through on the bottom to support all the cables that are on a Corsair VX550 PS?
  • Is there enough room behind the MB tray for the long cables that are supplied with the VX550?
  • Will any of the built in fans require extension cables for good wire management?
  • Are the wire pins in the supplied cables really as flimsy as some of the reports suggest?
  • Are the supplied fans good enough, or should they be replaced with something better?

Their isn't a lot of issue with cable management, if routed right. But the door will require some weight pressed on it to close. Not a big deal.

The Stock fans are already routed through the back. Just plug a molex in.

The supplied wire ties are fine. Just don't try to bundle too much with them.

The supplied fans are Cooler Master fans. They move plenty of air and they are quiet. You will need to add a fan to the side panel though. This will supply adequate ambient air to the video card.

It's a great case. You'll love it.

Also, take new egg reviews with a grain of salt. Most of those guys posting reviews are clowns. I usually stick with the pro review sites.

Thanks. Did you have any trouble with the connector pins? Also, are the USB cables long enough to reach the bottom edge of the MB?

The only cable you are going to have trouble with is the 6 pin power connector in the upper right of your mobo. I had to get a 6 inch extender for mine. But all the case cables are more then long enough, and they are already routed and bundled together. No mess to deal with.

*edit* Did not realize you had an intel board. Not sure how your power connectors are. But I'm sure another member can comment on that.

Sweet, it's awesome to see so many new members joining us here and also so many people purchasing the scout! Well Done guys

I trust everyone had a beautiful Christmas I sure did.

I treated the scout too or well it got treated, got a bit spoiled by a few hehe.

I managed to get the Micro Res into the scout yesterday...looks and works like a charm I'm going to change the coolant though, most probably going to go with demineralized water with either a uv red or black dye. I'll have to sleeve the uv cathodes as well, the white cable looks ugly
