I love it! I have to say I'm glad I went with my gut and stayed with MSI. There are a couple of bummers, not with the board but with my hardware. For instance, while the on board sound is clean and quiet it's very basic. So I went back to my X-Fi. However it's on PCI interface and so is my wireless card, so if I want to go X-fire I'll have to switch to PCI-e. No biggie really just mo money. Overclocking is a little daunting because of all the settings, but I'll eventually get there. What I'm really digging is the H-50. Nice and quiet and I love the mechanical sound of the pump. It's barely audible, but I'll take that over the whirring of a fan any day. I'd love to stay up and chat, but I gotta go to work in the morning. Us asphalters start early.

Any way back to Scouts and their insides, I narrowly averted a major tragedy this week. My one and only hard drive took a dump on me; disk read error at boot. OH NO! all my pics, music, well you guys know. It seems our lives are on those things and for me it was. I had everything on it. It was a Seagate 500 gig single platter drive and up until this point had worked flawlessly. I wasn't able to run Seatools or anything to try and get the thing to boot, so I go to Best Buy and buy a WD Caviar Green drive. Not being sure about the 5400-7200 rpm function I bought it any way and got back up running. Being that I bought the Seagate last year and had experienced no trouble I finally got rid of the packaging after about 8 months. So here I am looking at Seagate's packaging requirements for RMA and I'm forced to A) Shell out more money to buy approved shipping packaging from a Seagate partner or B) ship it out in the box for my new WD Drive causing the same dilemma if the WD takes a crap. So out of desperation I burn the Seatools for DOS on a disc, boot up Seatools and run the short test-instant fail! (enter choice of curse word here) . Then following Seatools suggestion I run the long test which it made through with only one error and at the end Seatools was able to repair! I got all my data back was able to wipe the disc and ran Seatools again with all tests passed. Tragedy and RMA averted and not exactly the way I wanted it to happen, but now I have a backup drive for the first time in my life.

Lesson learned: Don't be a cheap ass and think it won't happen to you . Get a backup drive and save yourself the headache. I'm such a dumbass for not buying an extra drive when I built my new system just because I was trying to save $65 bucks and assuming that a drive with less than a year on it would not have trouble. (Rockr hangs his in shame....)
Wow sucks mate, but at least you fixed the thing and well... your pc actually works!

My mobo is still at the store and they indicated that they could not find an error on it. Then they asked me if I could send the rest of my system so they can check my other components. Very kind, but I'm not really interested in shipping all my stuff I bought somewhere else to their shop. Not to mention the shipping costs. So I guess I'll just ask the motherboard back, pay them their damn 30 euro's research cost, and try stuff out myself again.

If things still go ugly, I'll hop to a nearby computer store to fix it for another small sum of money. I'm fed up with this ****. I just wanna ****ing game!

Hey guys, just wanted to post this in here. Looks like a lot of people have moved on to sleeve their PSU cables (me included). Anyone who's done this knows it can be a headache, and get expensive. I saw in a another post on this site that NZXT has started making extension cables that are sleeved, so you can get the same look without the hassle. Of course, that just means more cable to hide away, but I figured it's worth a mention

I'm just wondering if i can fit a 240mm Rad into storm scout? Is it possible to mount the rad on the side panel since it has holes for 2x 120mm fans? Has anyone tried it yet?

I would Love see this.. Use really thin 120 fans. And you might need to use a Low profile Video card.

Well, I finally got my first build put together. Here's a couple pics. I still need to do a lot of cable management, and I don't have the OS yet so I'll post a couple pics of my finished setup once it's all done in a couple weeks
