Not all never mobos have the built in speaker, the same with my GPU, non of them has the built in, and they are pretty new both of them.

Oh and by the way, E, you were right. So far I'm all Mickey D's about this system.

And as a response to your orders; What did the cannibal do with his girlfriend after he ate her?
He dumped her! Ba Dum Bum!
Duuuuuude nice I'm glad you got your stuff man! Great pile of hardware there

So Thats what he did??? I was wondering about that yesterday. Came right to me and then I thought. Is that a Lian Li Case he has and I saw the CoolerMaster emblems on the drive Locks so thank you for clarifying that. Please share your Ideas with us rocker. We don't like those crappy plastic clips either.

Very Nice job Rocker.

You should have posted before you built, I could have told you the Hyper 212+ will not work on and Evga board. I had to send mine back, what a waste of cash! The original Hyper 212 fit because of the wire fan clips but when they switched to the plastic clips they also changed the 1366 mounting bracket. The only Evga X58 board it won't short out is the Micro-Atx.
Are you going to run a cable to the front e-Sata?? Isn't it nice having 12 USB ports? You can plug in all your stuff and your neighbors! Are you going to use Evga Bot to overclock or just the E-Leet and the guides?

Sorry you cut your case, I mean it's not terminal but if you ever want to add another card, well you can't. How I did it? Look at page #1 and my pic, you'll see the cage is leaning toward the front of the case. I have a whole paragraph on how to do it, if you ask in advance. Since you didn't though, long jaw pliars, neoprene on the jaw faces, grab the top of the cage, bend > insert card for measuring > bend around where the nose touches > insert card again> bend the top of the 3.5 cage until the edges crimp> insert card > run power cables out the hole then back in through the drive cage holes and connect. Cross fingers while pressing power button on case, it should run fine after it's in, not once did it get hot.

How did I do it in Mindy's case? I used a 5850 Black edition, she plays RPG's, no FPS'es.

Thanks BriSleep. I love my EVGA X58 board, it really matches the color of the Scout case.You're right, I should have posted here before i build my rig. I had no clue that the CM Hyper 212+ won't work on our board. Lots of people recommended it to me and the reviews are very promising. Unfortunately, I can't return mine to newegg as I purchased it more than 30 days ago.

Can you imagine the hell I went through swapping parts trying to figure out what's causing my rig not to boot? I pretty much swapped everything except the motherboad and the CPU cooler, I RMA'd my first motherboard and received the replacement 3 days later. I put everything, again same problem, won't boot. Someone from EVGA forum suggested to try the stock CPU cooler which solved my problem.

Yes, I will use the front e-Sata and I can't complain with the all the USB ports. I'm still learning on how to OC, so right now I don't know if should use E-leet. But first I have to buy another CPU cooler.

I already know that 5870 won't fit the Scout until I saw your rig. It gave me hope lol. Initially I was going to buy 5850 and do xfire later. I do not want to buy a different case. I fell inlove with the Scout the first time I saw it.

Sounds like a lot of work the way you did yours. Props to you. All it took me is a dremel and 15 mins of my time. Its not very neat but atleast I made it fit. Sorry for the long post. Did I mention that I love this case?

OK. I got some sleep and finished The Stalker this morning. I think I'm feeling up to the task of writing this all up. So let's get to it.

From the very first moment I saw the Lian-Li PCI-01 tooless pci lock in their cases I felt that was the greatest single advancement in case technology I had seen since I got into this game about five years ago. When I bought the Scout my first choice was the Lancool PC-K62. I even had on my wish list. Now I love Newegg; they helped me out when I bricked my 3850 with an RMA (though I didn't tell them i bricked it) and for the most part they have the best overall pricing and availability on the market bar none. So I have great love for a great company, however, they do play musical chairs with pricing and shipping costs. So if they have a good deal on something you want get on it while the gettin' is good.

Back to the Lancool. Awesome case with great features (except those hideous blue leds, no offense Bri) with a price to die for. At that time, a couple of weeks before X-mas, it was $79.99 w/free shipping. I know, totally kick ass! Swap out those blue leds for red ones and I would have been ready for my current build. Then tragedy struck. Newegg bumped up the price to $99.99 and almost $20 for shipping. Well boys and girls that was a deal breaker, for another case had also caught my eye and it was the (WARNING! The author of this post is about to shamelessly plug a product. You have been warned) COOLER MASTER STORM SCOUT. Red leds , great looks, just the right size and OH... it was perfect; except the tooless pci locks left something to be desired, but at $89.99 w/free shipping the deal was struck when my daughter asked what I wanted for X-mas. So here I am with my beloved Scout in the company of all of you fine folks here at OCN and the Storm Scout club,all thanks to Newegg's pricing policy and a lovely loving daughter.

After purchasing the Scout I was ogling the Lancool PC-K62 again and I went to the Lian-Li website to do more research on the Lancool (a guy can never have too many cases...RIGHT?!) I saw that they had the PCI-01 listed in the case parts section! Rapture! I had to find where to buy it for I must have one for the Scout. Again tragedy struck. It was too new and there was nowhere for it too be found, except in South Africa. I know. Go figure. So in my desperate search I searched this site in my futile attempt to locate one closer to home because shipping from South Africa was completely cost prohibitive. Any way I found a thread about the little sucker and everyone was in the same boat as me (thread located here http://www.overclock.net/case-mods-g...i-bracket.html) and it was andygoyap who discovered it was available at performance pcs. Finally! Now we're gettin' somewhere! I made up my mind right then and there that it would be mine, oh yes, it would be mine. When the time came to order my parts list from Newegg I made a little side trip over to Performance PC's and placed my order.

Now on to the build....

I know you guys want to know about the PCI bracket but you'll just have to wait. I'm saving it for last.

First order of business was to sleeve all the case cables and the power supply.

I didn't need nor did I like the separate 4pin atx power cable to have to hide, so when I was in the power supply (warranty already voided WHOOPS!) I cut it off.

Fixed pics are on next page. Sorry for my dumbness!

To continue...

The next order of business was to get rid of those pesky fan grills and to make a hole for the 24 pin cable, the front panel cables and the dvd power and data cables. it was quick work with my trusty dremel and reinforced cutting discs. Like cutting through butter...
