So I just ordered one of these cases up and I'd like to know what the concesus is for CPU HF mounting, given that there's both a top and rear fan. Should I mount the HF discharging up into the top fan or backwards into the rear fan? What has worked best for everyone else?

depends on the size of your cooler. I would have preferred to have it discharge to the rear, but my TRUE was too tall (hit the top fan), so I have it pointing up. Check your cooler's dimensions against the info in the OP. I think I'm actually the one quoted with the info lol

EDIT: I went ahead and copied the info from the front page for you, theres a lot of stuff to sift thru...

CPU Cooler Specifications

With 2 Side Panel Fans Installed. 120x120x25
(146 mm.) CPU to Top Side Panel Fan Distance.

With Only the Bottom Side Fan installed
171 mm. CPU to Side Panel Distance NO Fan installed on the Top of the Side Panel

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.

Scout Info.

well, if this is what you're talking about, its 133mm wide, which means it can only be mounted horizontally (fan blowing out the top). I've got a TRUE, and its too tall when mounted to the fan blows out the back, the top fan gets in the way. I think the cooler needs to be under 120mm wide to be mounted vertically.

I have a Arctic Freezer 7 Pro that's WELL under even the smallest dimensions given. I'll be able to fit it any way I want. However, having had issues with exhaust fans interfering with the CPU fan on my current rig, I'm trying to figure out the best orientation for this new rig. I think interference will be even more of an issue due to the Freezer 7's unshrouded fan.

Outstanding. Here are the results.

The new fans are on the way so I will let the case cure for a few days. I got 2 140 Xigi's with white LED's and a cold cathode kit for inside. We will see how it looks with the white Gelid fans on the side panel and let you be the judge.
Wow that looks pimp bro, the blue looks killer on the scout. Besides Enigma has anyone painted a scout yet? This seems like one of the first, good job and rep+.

I like the scythe kama bay with rubber screws. I had to drill a few holes and replace the fan. But hey the free methods work as well.

Are either of these what you are referring to?? If not, what is your "paint cleaner"?
Meguirer's sell and also turtle wax sells what they call a paint cleaner for removing oxidation. It is not harsh and will take some of your little problems away. Otherwise 3M Polishing Compound from the paint store.

No don't use it on the Bezel. It is syrupy. and it will change the color some and it will give it a painted Car look.

Too late. Check an earlier post for pics of the results.

What I percribed was no Clear coat. It acts like a clear coat but it also has color in it. It will also even out the paint tones.
