I've been rethinking the airflow on my case, and have a question. Has anyone gotten the TRUE to mount vertically (fan blowing front to back, not bottom to top)?

I originally thought that witht he stock fans, mounting it so the fan points up would work with the top exhaust port, since there's no stock fan for the 5.25" drive bays. But now that I have one installed there, I'm thinking there's a pretty nice breeze blowing from front to back.

I just couldn't get the TRUE to mount like that on my first, rushed attempt. Seems like the top fan is the limiting factor, but maybe I just couldn't squeeze it in at the right angle. So, anyone had any luck with this? If so, pics? Thanks

I haven't seen the True but on the first post there is some specs that I put in lately about the space you have for mounting CPU Coolers .. Check it out..

well, looking at Thermalright's site, the specs are "Dimension : L63.44 x W132 x H160.5 mm"

and the front page says:

"Heatsink Dimensions 120 x 120 x 158mm to 169mm is the optimum size range for this case.

Top of the case to the Bottom or Vertical dimensions of the case should not exceed 120mm. Side to side dimensions 140 mm.

Example of too big is the Cooler Master V10 (L) 236.5 x (W) 129.6 x (H) 161.3 mm
Its not the height or the width of this cooler but it is 10 mm too tall from top to bottom.
"

So it looks like that 132 width (when mounted at 90 degrees) becomes a 132 height, and the max height is 120, which has to be because of that fan.

Oh well, and thanks for the point in the right direction. Guess it's staying where it is

hi guys! I just got my New computer and i bought a storm scout for my chassis, and i love it! i love how it was built in steel, and i love how spacious it is and also the handle for mobility... Another thing i love about the Scout is its looks, the black paint job really looks cool, and it matches the color of my mobo and PSU (orange) cuz it has red LEDs... But i got a problem with cleaning up the cables, i am new to modding and its my first time buying and building a CPU part by part.... hope you guys could help me! thanks guys! really loving my Scout now!


edit: oh btw, i havent bought my RAM yet, maybe next week, so i really havent tried running my computer yet heheh~

I posted on this thread because I like the Storm Scout Too and I needed some biased opinions LOL. Still I got the Scout mainly for its beautiful looks...
The antec 902 had some bad reviews and the mesh has too big holes.
antec 300 was the only one I would buy however the price of the case here compared to the US, is a big turn off. The CM690 style was not my liking.
I think the Storm is the gathering of the best, take away expensive = Surperb quality.

Hi again I need more help to finish building the PC.

I have found 2 power connectors (i presume from the front panel) that only have 2 of the 4 cables inside (one red/black and the other one yellow/black). Is this normal? Where do I connect these, to a standard power connector?

Thanks for your help. I'm almost finished with the build. Hope everything works out.

Yeah, they're normal. The yellow/black is for the fan power and the red/black is for the LEDs/LED power. Just standard molex for em.

Many thanks.

I just don't understand why the manual doesn't say anything about it, as if people would be building computers every day.

I don't want to make too many assumptions just in case I plug in something wrong and kill all my lovely new parts.

btw. Reps for you

First I would like to welcome you to the CM Storm Scout Club and I would like to take the opportunity to help you. The first wire management secret that I would share with you is to run the CPU 4 or 8 wire motherboard plug under the motherboard itself. That is so you don't have to run the wire across the top of your motherboard. Also know tha those protrusions on the end of the motherboard base panel are tie downs so you can wire tie your wires securely to the frame.
