So it would be like if you turned up and down the light.
Does anyone know if it has been done before? and if so, do you know if there are any pictures?
I'm a total noob at electronics. But I guess that you would have to make some kind of control unit that could pulsate the light and hook it up to the catode/led and the PSU. Is that possible?
it is easy to make a controller to pulsate a led (i would not use a ccf if you were going to make it flash)

have a look at a astable flipflop
with a cap at the out you could make it puslate

Hiya people,

I FINALLY got all my stuff including the scout! yay!

So I've got a couple of questions now about a few things.

First off the cables that come from the front of the case. The small coloured wires that are for the power, reset and LED and stuff all have a coloured cable and a white cable. Only one of those has a + and - indication. The coloured being + and the white being -. I can't see that on the other ones. Can I just assume that every white is - and every colour is +?

Secondly. I put the 8-pin power connector and front HD audio cable through the big hole behind the mobo. But it the cable touches the upper back of my motherboard slightly... isn't that dangerous? Or is plastic OK as long as it's no metal components that touch the motherboard?



Third: How do I remove one of those toolless things from the 5,25 bays so I can put my fan controller in there? They seem pretty solid in place there and I dont want to break anything!

This is the very first time I build my own PC from scratch and I got some expensive ****e here so I just wanna be careful

Take a look at it I forgot to put the fan controller and SSD in that pic because I didnt had those when I took the pic. And when I got everything I started building right away

Yes, after checking mine, the white wires all appear to be negative.

If it's that hot with a V-8 I can guarantee you it probably will not help to water cool it. You've got some other troubles my man.
Ok here is the abridged version of the story. After I first installed this the V8 i was idling at about 29-31C and after playing games for a while (even Crysis maxed) I would only get up to about 39-41C. So my temps were awesome. Well I thought they would be even better if I bought 2 more 120mm fans and add them in. I put one in the door and I put one in the 5.25 drive bays (zip tied of course). Then suddenly my temps shot up to where they are now. So i took the fans out and they didnt go back down. Ive tried everything. I turned my PSU to where the fan is pulling air out of the case and out the back of the PSU and that actually made it even worse. So yesterday I flipped the PSU back around and reseated my V8. Im using some Antec Formula 5 for my thermal compound. Im going to radioshack today to buy some AS5. My temps have subsided a little. They are at 37,39,39,40. But that is still WAY too high.

All you gotta do is slide the Optical drive tooless lock to the fully open position then get under the end of it with a small regular srewdriver and pry up while sliding the mechanism towards the back of the case and it will come right off without damage so you can put it back in if you ever decide to sell your scout! Then you get behind the little metal clips and push out on them with a screwdriver from inside the 5.25"bay. You'll see where to push. Easy Peasy! Hope that helps.

You finally gonna put that old cow to pasture are ya? That's good, real good

The 8-pin will be fine, but you should run the FP audio through the rear hole down by the psu and the FP power, reset and led wires through the front hole by the psu. Will be much cleaner.

Take your time. Think about everything 2 or 3 times before you do anything. Make a step by step plan and then follow it through and you'll be fine. I am so happy for you but a bit jealous as well cuz my stuff won't be here till Wednsday. All my sleeving and heatshrink tubing AND my Lian-Li PCI-01 tool less PCI card lock assembly (in red) won't arrive till the end of the week. OOoooooo that is going to be double KEWL!

Finally got some (marginally) better pics of my rig. I'm still limited by horrible lighting and the fact that I have no desk space open to get the computer off the floor.

Thanks mate!

I put the HD audio on top, because on my motherboard the pins are a bit more to the top than the bottom, see the pic (its at the bright spot). I think this looks better then putting it all from the bottom. Plus that will probably interfere with my video card

*edit* I plugged in the 8 pins now (damn that was quite some work, almost no room ) and I neatl tucked away that audio cable between the back I/O panel and the blue heat sink

I wonder what to do with that nasty Audio97 attachment that is dangling around though... I have no use for it.




Anyways yeah I'm gonna take things real slow and think 3 times before doing the next thing. I was totally sweating when I put in the CPU I never did that before but it was a piece of cake. Just need to get over it and do it, lol. Next is the cooler!

Wish me luck

I'm hoping your stuff will soon be there for you to put your eager hands on as well
