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









Wow that turned out well, nice to see some water in the ol' scout.

I hope you guys don't mind me posting in this topic without owning a Storm Scout but I am on the verge of buying one and need some help. I want a good CPU cooler to go along with a new case but this will be my first aftermarket heatsink and I don't want to buy the wrong one. I've been researching for hours but the longer I look the more indecisive I become so I need a good .

What is a good AM3 cooler for me to purchase that will fit in this case? Because I only have experience with stock cooling I would like to buy one that doesn't require mods to fit correctly or lapping for good performance. My budget is ~$40 but it's flexible. Lower is obviously better but I can go higher if necessary. Noise is not a concern for me, I only care about cooling ability and whether or not it fits.

Also, I own two barely used Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm fans. What is the best way to put them to use with the Storm Scout?

A friend of mine that works at Micro Center and is an AMD fanboy, really seems to like this one.

I alway thought about getting one of these just to try on something. I really like the Scythe products for VGA cooling. A few of the guys at the local MC swear by there CPU coolers for the price.

EDIT---As for the 120mm Fans.. Stick them in the side panel.

Yup, they're all stickers.

I made them myself though, bought some photo stickers from the local office supply store and printed it off..

Thankies I'm very pleased with it, my main aims were budget and space...and they both worked out nicely for me.

The "ol' scout" is jam packed now, it kinda helps with added cable management too, hehe.

Looks great Photonmoo, but Demineralized is a pretty big no-no, it will corode the copper in your loop and you don't want that.

Hands down the best HSF for the money. And it will fit in the Scout. You will not be able to mount a fan on the top side panel vent though.
