I got them streeched and hot glued down on the fans already. Clogged up within 2 weeks There is allot of building going on here because of the Fifa 2010 soccer, so dust is really bad

Those are things I am looking for, again getting them in this country is not happening (just to show you how bad it is, I ended up buying the wrong colour lighting a few times. I took me a week and a half to eventually find the last set of ccfl's in red)


After reading a few pages(more like 100 random pages because when I first posted here I didn't have instant vb email notification on, so when I switched it on I got a handfull of mails saying there has been replies to my posts. Catch, they where random pages all over this massive post. Reading it on my ppc I didn't even read the dates on the posts )

EDI: I clean forgot to finish this post before posting it. As I was saying this post has given me many great ideas on how to mod my scout I just have to find the time now Also having down time sucks

Has anyone managed to install internal, no-case modification, non-kit water cooling in their CM Scout?

I’m currently sporting the H50 but am not very happy with the temps. I’m wondering if a peice meal version of the same single 120 mm radiator setup but with quality pump, block, and reservoir would show worthwhile improvements in temps.

I’m thinking a 5.25 drive bay reservoir and perhaps even double rads – one in the back and one up top – in a single CPU cooling loop. Perhaps even a CPU + VGA loop?

CPU-GPU loop with only 2x120mm or 1x 240mm Rad is just too much and I whouldn't reccomend it, the easiest whould probably bee to mount a 240 rad on the back of the case and let the tubing run through the PCI-e shieldholes on teh back of the case, or as said before /Though this require modding) you could mount the rad so that the top is at the top of the case and you drill 2 holes for the tubing too pass through, minimal modding requierd and you can get a 360 rad too fit, and then you could easily go for both motherboard cpu gpu and probably even crossfire cooling

Thanks for the feedback, MlbrottarN.

What about a single 120 rad setup for a CPU only loop? Just not enough cooling to justify the cost and effort?

Is it generally ill advised to have separate rad locations in the same loop?

I went to bestbuy today with a friend and they had the H50. I was going to get it but $80+8.8% sales tax was a little steep. So I opted against it. I will wait till it drops in prive.

What, you mean like this??
Attachment 142240 With the pump zipped to the drive cage.

And this, Attachment 142241 The reservoir is screwed to the drive cage, 2 screws minimal damage.
So, will it work in this case, definitely, I think you could set up water cooling on any case if you really want. Would I do it? No, been there, done that, for best performance in this air cooling is best but the H50 is better than setting up a regular L/C system because more air passes through it. Many of us have H50 setups.

No, if you're going to go above a 120 it's better to mount it externally. If you're going to do it no matter what because it's what you want go to this thread and check out the others. http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...allery-47.html

I've heard of that stuff, isn't that one of those zombie drugs? You're body keeps going but your mind isn't engaged? They took me off Ritalin and onto Provigil, that didn't work, so now I'm back on Ritalin for at least 2 weeks while the pharmacy guys decide if they'll pay for some Adderall. I don't know, I need something because the Ritalin just doesn't cut it anymore, I've been on it way too long.
Ho Hummm.

Sorry for the edit, but I have trouble keeping up when the pics are posted over and over. Your answer is on page 1 of this thread, maybe page 2 anyway just go to the start, all of our members cases are posted there.
