As for the rest of the front panel, I ended up taking out the audio and e-SATA cables (was never going to use them) and stashing the fan LED controller wires in the front bay (I replaced the LED fans with non-LED ones). So the USB and power/LED headers were the only ones I have plugged in.

Only thing wrong with the PET is that it's kinda see-through, as you can see with my SATA power cables. I actually kinda like the way it looks, though, just a hint of color. But that's personal taste.

Here's the links to the stuff I used:
1/8" PET cheap stuff
1/8" Techflex Clean Cut

If they have it in stock, I've heard the Murdermod kits are the best you can get.
Thanks very much man. He even had the heat shrink cheap, now that's a steal. And it's always good to have a little color in your life and I'm not that picky, I'd just like to dull that bright yellow sata cable.

Hi, my first storm scout case I had a difficulty fitting in the drive. My new one I just fitted in the drive today and it went in smoothly. Maybe coolermaster fixed up on it. The toolless is a hassle.

Sign me up.I've been waiting on my mobo to come in,so I thought I would do some premature cable management and test some ideals.I use the corsair protection foam to make the shape.Then I used the bag that came with the psu to make it look a little better.What do you think with or without the cover?

I also replaced the front and back fans with some Thermaltake green led thunder-blades.I think that the 140mm fan can be mounted in the drivebay to bring in some extra air.This is an amazing for the price,enough room,can be modded,love the color and the fact that it's toolless(I haven't had any problems). I look forward to finally getting this case all together.

+1 to u seven9st sufer.

Very nice, I have one question, with your power supply, what's covering it up? Are you just using some cardboard (or something similar) with the bag the psu comes in on it or what is it? Pictures would be sweet!

Hey everybody,

I was tossing up getting the Storm Scout and the....I know it seems like sacrilege on this thread... 690. Basically it was a sleek look versus a rugged look. And honestly after reading through this thread and seeing what people have done with it, I just put in the order from newegg for a Storm Scout and new PSU with it.

I don't even go to LAN parties but the handle seems to make sense, the side window has potential but doesn't look flashy, the interior is a tight black.... All features on expensive full tower cases let alone an $89 mid that can seem to fit anything.

My plan right now is to change the color scheme to all green lights with new fans and cathodes... Partly because of my gf haha and it would look tight in my living room.

Anyway I just wanna say that this thread has been pretty sweet to read through and hopefully by wed or thurs I'll have my new case...

Thanks everybody....that was kind of a long post, my bad..

Don't be silly .. The Thread was as long as it needed to be. Just post those pictures when you get your new case and I will add you to the roster. Your gonna love that case. BTW. Cooler master does sell those replacement fans in Green if you want to go that color and stay with the stock. They are pretty quiet. Check out this link.

Nice. Welcome to the club.

If you know how to solder. The hard drive activity LED and the power LED appear to be 3mm LEDs from the outside but are actually 5mm. It'd look much better if you made it match your green scheme than if you kept em red.

Also, I should point out that you can't turn off the LEDs with the LED switch if you're using fans not wired to do so.
