Hey Dudes! I just got my Scout last night and built it! one problem i had was that my PSU CPU Power wire was too short! :'( Does anyone know what i can do to improve this? I have a HD4870 in the way so it sort of has to go on top of it which loses some length on the way... The wire is plugged in right now but very tightly and I would like to wire it around my GPU or even behind the mobo into the back panel cause it looks weird right now... all the wires are hidden except for that one =/ haha.

Anyways, if there's no way going around this... can someone tell me what PSU is good for about $50-$60 canadian... I'm situated in Toronto, Ontario btw... I have been checking out some real sweet deals on OCZ550FTY and OCZ700MXSP lately... both really nice PSU's but I read somewhere that... the OCZ550FTY has the same problem =( help please! Thanks!

PS. Please keep in mind I don't plan on spending anymore than $80 tax and shipping included on a new PSU =/ And I don't even need the amount of power the ones I've mentioned supply...

Oh and out of those two... just for my own reference... which do you guys think is better?

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817341022

OR

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...6&promoid=1084
(Direct Canada has it 78.95 before $30 MIR... just that picture and info wise... NCIX is clearer... Newegg's info is nice too but product is way more expensive even WITH free shipping =.=)

I just finished my first build, and there is a molex connector on the left side of the case right about where the wires pass through. I couldn't figure what it was for or how to run a wire to it easily so I left it unplugged. Waiting for a friend to drop by Win 7 so I have only fired up the system briefly.

I thought I had everything but now I'm not so sure. I have a couple of questions that I'm hoping someone might have some advice with. First of all I'm sticking with the red and black theme and I really want a red led fan in the top slot but cannot find a ball bearing version. Has anyone come across one that might work? If I can't find one I'm just going to use the 140 that came with the case and hope it lasts.

My second question is this, I'm using the R4 120's around the case, 2 in front and one in back. They really don't give off that much glow and I'm concerned I won't have enough illumination inside the case. I've decided I might add one or two Logisys 9 LED strips but here's the kicker, I'd like to wire them both to the button on the front that was used to turn off the lighting with the original fans. Since this cable uses a 2pin for connections is this possible or will I need another switch? I don't mind cutting metal but I'm not real keen on wiring things.

Here is the exact item I'm thinking about:

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

The ENERMAX Apollish fans I put in my case are great fans, they have a switch to turn off the LED's, decent airflow and not to loud, they also have a thermal control wire to control fan speed but a simple mod to bypass this by cutting the end off and twisting the wires together (thats what I did), the best part of this fan is the LED's, they are super bright! They also come in red, blue and green.

That's either your rear fan power or your led power. Depends on the color of the wires. If they're red an black=led. If they're yellow and black=fan.

Buy an extender then run it behind the mobo. I assume your talking about the 8 pin connector or what ever that goes in the uper corner of your mobo?

Is that what you did with your Fatal1ty? or is the 4-pin CPU Power wire long enough? :S
