Oh, and I'd recommend against putting a side panel fan on. The difference in temps will be minimal and the vibrations from it are a bit loud.
I agree with that, when I take off the side panel temps only drop by 1-3'c MAX. But you can use the rubber washers that come with the case.

gpu idles at 60'c which sucks.

My pc is less than a metre from me and my face and it are on the same level. I am not saying its loud but audible fuuuuuwoo watever air sound like.

Inaudible means its not hearable to you at all. Are you so sure about that?

Hey guys, well I have yet to place my order for the scout, but it will be shortly. (student loans kick ass) Now I have a question to help me with one of my mods. (I plan ahead...a lot) There is this issue with the stock case fans/led switch control unit. I was wondering if anybody had attempted to mess with this? If so, are there images? If not, could anybody please take a few? With some close-ups of the led switch terminal. Also, of the connectors??? I believe I read a molex to provide power, and there is apparently another, which causes the molex wire to be different? If anyone could help me with this I would very much appreciate it. And if not thank you for taking the time to read and respond!

All the fans have 2 connectors coming from them. A molex for power and one that looks like a big 3-pin fan connector. That one connects to a lead from the LED switch on the top.

Here's a pic. Look at the top left. There's 2 small white connectors in front of a molex, to the left of the red e-SATA cable. Those are the LED control connectors.



Sorry, it's the best pic I have, because as you can see I cut off all the molex connectors and did a terminal block. Also, I switched out the LED fans for normal ones, and hid away the leads from the LED switch. Hope that pic helps out tho

As you can see it's just the foam that protected the psu when they shipped it(I did have to cut & measure to get the right dimensions).And the bag that came with it,I used some adhesive spray(pictured) to stick the bag to the foam.Hope this give you a better understanding of what I did.

Thank you sir! Very resourceful and quite simple.

Now I know I asked earlier, but I am quite eger to figure this out. Thank you for the image seven9st surfer and also thank you fog clearing up the cable question. I'm still wondering if there was anybody that could take that picture of the back of the fron I/O panel. I'd like to see how that switch circuit is wired. So far if everything is wired as I have gathered, I will easily be able to wire in many more fans than just two.... Thank you all very much, I am just lookin to gather what I need so I can order my supplies and have it hear roughly the same time as my case, thank you all very much!

You guys have to check this out. I really want to reacreate the air duct he created in the HD bay for the Storm Scout

What do you guys think? And remember it'll all be green
