Well my work in progress continues. I think I've used every fan configuration possible with this case. So I installed a fan shroud on my H50. By the way, a shroud on the intake side with a good static pressure fan makes a pretty decent improvement in cooling. Without a pull fan, which is not necessary with this config, my cpu temps dropped to 1c over ambient idle and 8c under full load. However, if you do this, you cant use the 140mm fan at the top. So I moved that to the 5.25 bay and installed a 120mm at the top. Both side panel fan grills are now occupied. So I think it's as good as it's going to get. I just have to get matched fans for everything. I got everything from Antec fans to R4's to CM stock 120's and 140's. LOL. But it cools well.

My Scout is on the UPS truck to my house today. Before doing the parts swap from my old case I wanted to get opinions here about a couple of things I read in the Newegg reviews.

How many people here have had cable or switch problems with their Scouts? I figured the first thing I'd do is check each cable type (switches, LEDs etc) for continuity or shorting, as the case may be, with my multimeter before hooking anything up. Also, can someone give me a sense of what some comments about the 'cable bundle being so tight as to have pulled' really means? What should I be looking for?

Is there anything else I should check before moving stuff in? I was thinking of Loctite'ing in the MB standoffs into the tray; I've had these loosen in other cases in the past.

I did not have any issues with the bundled cables nor with the switches or shorting. You can locktite the standoffs if you want to, but in the 20 years I've been building, I have never seen a standoff just loosen on it's own.

Can you send out a Picture of your new mod please... Thanks Scout.

I think the biggest problem has been Pilot error on these things.. just go through the instructions good before assembly.

No need for Loctite. If it was an issue they would put it with the case. No problems on that.

The biggest thing is the Light off on curcuit. for the fans and the molex that feeds those. If you want ground out the green wire on your Power supply and molex those fans and the lights of the fans to check wiring



There is only one green wire to every PSU. its the power detection curcuit. Take a paper clip and stick side one to the green wire and side two of clip, to a black. Some PSUs also need a 5 volt curcuit to be powered . That requires you to put a 100 ohm, 100 watt resistor to the 5 vdc curcuit to ground.

Thanks Enigma. Yeah, I've done this before to check build-outs on previous efforts. Is there something about the Light circuit that I need to know about if something goes wrong?

BTW, the case got here about 30 minutes ago! (The beauty of taking the holiday week off. ). So far so good. No dents or cracks anywhere.
