I've ordered all the parts for my first build, and will be going home on Friday to pick them up! This includes a Storm Scout, so I guess you could add me to the club
The stuff in my sig is what I ordered, and I just have a few quick questions.
1. Should I mount the PSU fan intaking from the case, or from the bottom hole for it? If it matters, the computer will be on a desk for now, but probably on carpet this summer and I don't know what it will be on after that.
2. If/when the computer is on carpet, should I place a proportionate size piece of plywood or something underneath it, or doesn't it matter if it's directly on carpet?
3. Should I get an additional fan for the side panel, or doesn't it actually do much for cooling? I'll likely add a second card after a year or so.
4. Any recommendations on which way (horizontal/vertical) to mount my cpu cooler, or does it just fit one way?
Thanks a bunch for any help; I can use all the experience and advice I can get!
Btw I'll be sure to post some pics once it's all done, hopefully within a week if all goes well.
