Pulled it off today to check and there was no dust there at all. Major improvement! What were they thinking giving us filters on that panel and then leaving a very large gap to defeat the purpose. Anyway just thought it would be an idea worth passing on.


That is BRILLIANT!!!

Hey, no problem. Guess what, I didn't know until you posted that these posts actually have individual numbers!
Oh yeah, look at the picture on the first page of the thread and you can actually see my drive cage is leaning just a little.

I guess as long as your temps are right for you it doesn't matter how much you block cooling vents.

The guys on my DS forums are very against doing anything for sound dampening because blocking noise blocks air, blocking air increases internal heat, increasing internal heat stresses components. Ergo leave it all open the way the case builder intended.

News on the where my computer is at. Got a call this morning it's still sitting at Digital Storm, new case, new re-build, the works. Except, one of the two things I was complaining about, that one SSD wasn't working right proved out to be true when they stress tested it, it blew! Geesh why don't people listen to the customers any more? Hope I didn't have anything that I didn't back up on that drive.

Actually, if I'm reading it right, this is the right thread. This guy want's to know if a Scout window will fit on a HAF 922.

Answer, I really really doubt it. If you look at the .pdf spec sheet for both cases and look at the side panel. On the HAF it's rectangular and flat. On the Scout it's smaller in the front than the back and it's raised towards the back though we do have one guy that put in a flat panel. As to where you can get a panel if you really wanted to test it out. All you have to do is contact CM by phone or e-mail and they'll gladly send you anything you want to pay for.

Not really. Didn't you PM me? If so I answered you. If not, let me know and I'll tell you the secret. Look at the picture of my Scout on the first page of this thread, you'll see the drive cage leans a bit toward the front. I did not break any rivets or welds though.

yeah thanks BriSleep, ive ordered myself a Cooler Master 4-in-3 Device Module, im going to replace the HDD cage with it. It will shorten the cage height a whole slot and a half and make an opening between the HDD cage and Upper bays. Ive only got 4 drives to go in anyways so its perfect.
Real nice rig btw

Thanks, too bad it's gone now. See post above. Anyway, I'm still in the club, building my wife a brand new Scout system. It's almost ready to power up. I'm working on a fan in the optical bays right now. I've got progress pics but can seem to find her USB cable right now.
If I disappear for a while it's because I needed to move this stuff to install her software.

Where did you find this 4 in 3 device module?

Oh man! Have ya'll been to the Cooler Master website lately? Play Cooler Masters January spokes lady Amanda description of the 690-II. If I weren't married I'd be looking up her phone number!
