It only had 4 pins at the time and allowed for more stable DC voltage to the CPU. As overclocking became all the rage the AMD people also started using this connector and it was then renamed the CPU Connector and is not the same as a PCIe connection. This wire now is an Eight pin connector but most Motherboards only require four of them to be connected. That is the reason that four connectors are covered in the picture. They are not require but they are recommended if your going to overclock and use the PCIe 16 Slot.

This Wire Connects Here.



See that this connector is located in a really bad place on the board. We run this cable behind the board so this cable doesn't look Ugly routing over your nice clean board.

Another way of running the wire is hide it along the window side of the box part of the case and use plastic glue type wire tie downs to hide it.. That is a good way to hide the cable if you have already mounted the board and do not want the pull it off again.

Here is a picture of the tie downs.

ii see.. i get it now, well i use the 8 plug connector... and i already mounted my board but i dont want to take it out anymore, i might destroy it and im kinda scared screwing my parts cuz it cost allot... hehehe well i might do the running the wire along the window side, ill try and do something about! thank you so much! and u even find pictures just to explain it to me, thanks allot! really appreciate ur help ill just ask some questions when i start fixing my wires again

edit: ohh and btw, im using a P5Q SE PLUS mobo, and yeah, the socket for the CPU power has a very bad location hehehe kinda hate it )

Thinking of buying this case. I know this might have come up earlier but I didn't see really where my question might have been answered. Would it be better to go with the Dark Knight or the Mugen 2 for this case? Buying a Asus P6T mobo with this aswell. Getting OCZ Gold ram. They have heat spreaders on them.

Mugen 2. Both work well and both look well though.

Thank you very much.
So, I am writing from my freshly new built and installed rig. Made one big mistake although I will sort it out in the next couple of days. I installed the CPU cooler in the wrong direction so instead of blowing the air upwards towards the top of the case it's blowing down towards the GPU. I've monitored temps and since I'm not doing anything Full load yet I think it will be ok until I find more time.

Now to my question regarding the fans and leds. See attached picture.


Where do I connect the molex connector with 2 black/red cables? I guess these are for the Led's because it's the only thing not working. Fans are working, USB is working, power and reset button are working.

The other molex connector with one yellow and one black cable is connected to a standard molex with four cables (red/black/black/yellow). Is this correct? Why is the connector wasting two cables? All this cable mayhem drives me crazy.

Thanks to anybody that can shed some light upon this.

The molex connectors with black/red are for turning on/off the fan LEDs. Just plug em into a standard molex plug. The yellow/black molex connectors are for the fan power.

Both of those molex plugs just need to be plugged in to a molex from the PSU.

Hey people,

Just want to say that some of the rigs showing up in this thread are epic! shows what can be achieved in a relatively compact case. r11s in particular .. how the fcuk?!

Slight change of plan for my upgrade route .. instead of going i7 right away I'm going to hold off until the refresh/shrink happens.

So for the moment I'm in the market for graphics solution, CPU cooler, Black PCB SLi 775 motherboard and new RAM.

So far I think for graphics one of two options, 2xGTX260 Black Edition or 1xGTX285 Black Edition? Will SLi fit in the scout comfortably, I presume/hope the answer will be yes as i saw r11's rig with the 2x 4870X2's
Cooling wise I'm probably going to go for the Corsair H50 cooler as its got some awesome reviews and it looks pretty nice aswell!
RAM I'm going for 2x2GB 1066 Dominator with the Airflow fan.

Motherboard is a bit different, ive been looking at 780/90i SLi mobos and think they would be ok, would there be much difference in performance? I'm in it purely for the looks of the components inside the case, want as many of the components as I can to be black to fit in with the interior of the scout, and the green PCB on my 680i and my 8800GTS640mb are driving me crazy!

Cheers!
Storm Scout

Black PCB is amazing. The GTX 285 fits fine. Kinda barely clears it though. GTX 260s will fit easier.

Well I'm almost finished with my build and at least it is up and running. I still have to do some file moving from two old IDE HDD to a new SATA HDD. I didn't realise that my new mobo only had one IDE connector...

Here the pics I promised. I'm really liking the case more and more each time I look at it. I still have to work a bit on the cable routing.





Hope you like the pics. I will try to make a couple more (better) shots tomorrow.

Couple things.
  • Next time I'd not get a Zalman.
  • Modern day mobos come with 1 IDE and 1 FDD socket. I saw some new Intel P55 mobos that had neither.
  • Looks good. I like the different LED colors.
  • You should paint your optical drive black or buy a black one in the future.
