Sorry about cc tube I did an edit, please see reason for editing, I can't wait to see your solution for the strip that's too long cuz I want to do something similar to my scout. I might go with cc tubes. I'm thinkin they're a bit more subdued that the led strip. I could be wrong that's why I joined this club to get ideas on how to get where I want my rig to be. Anyway nice looking nonetheless.

Man I get it it. You're using the 12" 18 LED Super Bright Sunlight Stick. As I said I did an edit on my original post and the reason was I'm dumb! I'll quit giving you compliments on your build if all your gonna do is bust my n*** over a simple mistake. Usually when someone gives me a compliment I say thank you. I thought everyone on here was courteous, I guess I was wrong.

No prob, I'm a little cranky too. All I was trying to say is your's is the closest to what I have seen as being perfect in my opinion theme wise in the whole club. I can't wait for this blue led craze to be over. Not that I don't like some of the blue stuff I've seen. One in particular I found to be tremendous sweet, just not my style.

Being that it's an led strip inside an acrylic tube couldn't you cut it down to fit wherever you want? Or are the ends hard capped?

I know what your saying about the blue... I have one of my machines that is lit up blue.

I think I like the one I have that I have that is lit up with white LED's the best though.. I painted it flat black inside, cut a window and frame out on the Flow water jet at work... whit the white leds, in it, it makes the Vendetta CPU cooler jump right out of the case.

The ends are glued on and there are resistors inside the tube too...

I just finished getting it to go in there. I was able to heat up the tube a little bit and squeeze in the sides where it needed to slide by the hard drive cage. It doesn't need to be fastened down, thats for sure. Its in there tight.

Here is a couple of pictures with it installed...

I ended up taking out some of the tool less hardware out so I could install a couple of things in the 5.25 bays that wouldn't work with the tool less set up.

Here is a pic of my Storm Scout with a S-FLEX SFF21F attached to the outside. I paid for a case with two side fan locations and was determined to use them regardless of looks.

The location of the fan was too good to pass up. It directly blows air on my CPU cooler, graphics card, northbridge, and RAM. Effects of mounting the fan:

-2°C load on the processor.
+ 200MHz on Prime95 stable northbridge overclock
+ 100MHz on Prime95 stable RAM overclock
-5°C load on the graphics card
-2°C motherboard temp
-3°C hard drive temp. I don't know how but I'll take it.
+ no noise increase over the other side intake fan.

The cable management is more effective than it appears in the picture. The visible cables are pressed against the window out of the way of airflow. My desk blocks the window so I used it just like the other side panel.

The H50 doesn't fit in push pull config in the scout due to the top exhaust right?
Does that config really affect cooling?
