Dang guys, I thought we were bored! We're playing "Dream Card" at the Atlantis casino. You play at home, it's 3 hand poker, 200 hands at a toss and the goal is to get 2 nights in a Spa room.

I dunno, my board is more like a central nervous system, brain, long term memory, short term memory, heat dissipation (shaved head). Too many eyes for just one person though. I'll have to take a pic of Mindy's board while lit up. It will be jealousy for you guys that like black & red.

How long ago did you get your motherboard? I got my wife the same exact one and hers is a totally different color scheme. Maybe that's how they keep track of the changes?
You have Caviar Blue drives, right? I've looked all over thier website and New Eggs and can't find out what exactly is the difference between blue and black. Do you know? I know you can't get a 1TB in Blue. Hmmmm.

Oh, please pardon the edit, I do it to everyone. I've got Narcolepsy pretty bad, it explains a lot!

Normal desktop use is fine, no hassles, bu tht e second i fire up a game, vertical grey or orange line get thrown up all over the screen, or the game will just lock up. After lots of googleing, i have sent the card back, i mean if you have to change voltages, change XML files, increase voltages in the bios, etc, then there is something wrong with that. My symbol will soon change, to intel and nvidia, something is telling me thats the way it should of been right from the start. cheers adios
Dude!! Too bad you sent it back already! The only thing wrong was that you didn't have the latest CCC (Catalyst Control Center) and the 9.12 drivers. Things tend to go psychadelic if you don't have the stuff that's up to date with the latest game and windows release. It's the main reason people b**** about ATI drivers. They'd rather install once and play forever than have to update every other month. Hmmmph.

Shhhh, I'm waiting for the latest greatest Nvidia boards to come out.

Hey all, my re-vamped, repaired and upgraded system should be here tomorrow. I'll let you know.

I know, right? The light kit came with 2 bulbs. That is just with one. I'm sure with both you could see the thing from Mars.

Oh wow, that sounds great. Do they come in red, and where did you get them?

Ty

Or what about in UV? That would be awesome!

Hey guys,

I just got this case for christmas and I absolutely love it. I have already convinced one of my friends to build his new rig with one as well.

Im interested in joining The Coolermaster Storm Scout Club. I want to wait until I have a few things done to my rig and ask a few questions before posting pics though.

But for now here is a list of my build:

ASUS P6X58D-Deluxe Mobo
Intel i7-920 1366 CPU
6Gb G.Skill Pi Series RAM
2 EVGA 9800GTX+ GPU in SLI
3 SATA II HDD's in RAID0
Lite-On DVD-RW DL Drive
Rosewill 1000W Semi Modular PSU
Coolermaster V8 CPU Cooler
2 additional COOLER MASTER R4-L2R-20CR-GP 120mm Fans

Overall its a pretty sick rig. I am absolutely loving it (and my wife for letting me blow $1400).

My questions are this:

1) I really liked the false floor I saw a modder build to hide his PSU and was wondering how he did that. It would really help with cable management because you really wouldnt have to hide much. I can tell its just a piece of sheet metal but how did they get such a perfect bend?

2) Photonmoo built a panel that covers her HDD bay. I was wondering what the panel is made out of and how it is attached.

3) I saw a couple of members with the dual memory fans and I really like the idea of having one over my RAM and was wondering if it would fit over RAM with the extra high heatsink (similar to the corsair dominator HS).

4) Has anyone ever used a panel like this to connect their accessories?

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/77...-RD.html#blank

If so, how big is it relative to the case?

That is all the questions I have for now. I love what you guys have done and I look forward to showing you guys (and gals) what I come up with!

Thanks!
Oh, just my opinion but don't get an ASUS board for a 1366 build, it's a really bad idea. Get an EVGA instead, even the cheapest Evga will work out better than the ASUS. If you want more info post a question as to why.

#1 Don't know this one, I'd say a sheet metal bender. Usually in someones signature they have a link to that project and they have a thread with full details. We have a guy with a Scout case that completely re-wired his PSU and every other wire in the case.
I want that part of his brain, the part of Enigma's that knows how to paint cases along with that part of dkev's and the part of Kev-b's that knows how to work with acrylic sheeting and the part of butmunchers that screams like a girl when his Mivonks hit cold water... and ... and...

#2 Photonmoo is a guy, the pick is of his lovely wife. Oh his panel is card stock but you can do it with a lot of different materials.

#3Yeah the OCZ fan will fit over dominators it was made for RAM with extended coolers. In my other rig I have 1866 Dominator DHX's with the OCZ fan on top. Oh, watch it, it comes in blue or nothing.

#4 Looks like a waste of money to me, you could probably build the thing with controllers built in by posting to one of the specialty threads and it would only have as many connectors as you exactly need, this thing looks like it will power enough fans for a server rooom. How big is it? Just look at the size of a Molex connector and imagine that many of them on a PCB.

One last thing. I thought it would be fantastic to have drives in RAID 0 and especially 2 SSD's of very high speed. It is, the system boots from shut down to Windows in 18-20 seconds and loads save games without a blink but all the intel Veterans were always telling folks don't go for RAID 0. I finally found out why. Whatever you back up can't be loaded except to that same raid config and if you loose your RAID, that's it, you can't recover it from any one disk. So, I ignored them. Now I'm getting 2 brand new 160Gb SSDs because the old were defective and I'll have to load all my stuff from scratch. Hopping off my soapbox now.

Newegg. I think they come in just about every color you can think of. I know Frys carries them too.

Oh man that's slick!!

This part of Rockr's brain.....
