AFAIK The "hooks" are what the fans are ziptied to. You need to cut the zipties(I think they're nylon or plastic) then the wires will come right out.

Also, no guarantees....I haven't had a Storm Scout for months.

I know I have seen a pic in this thread of the top panel witht the wires being sheathed. Anyone can post that pic again ?
Also I am looking through as many pics of peoples builds as I can to see if anyone has dilled that nice machined aluminum plate and put any other switches in the open spaces (if its possible) ?
On another note, is this thread the extent of this club ? Is there no independant page somewhere or at least a easier image gallery ?

EDIT:
I see photonmoo has ventured the path I wish to take If you read this thread, is there any chance you let me know how much space there is to work with. I am looking at putting my ccfl switch there & also a mini 3 fan speed controller.

As far as cooling the NB I didn't use the Noctua, I have the Megahalem and a Noiseblocker NB-Multiframe M12-P fan, I have the Noctua and H-50 set up on my Lian-Li rig, I think if I used the Noctua set up on my MSI board the fan would block any air flow to the NB because it would be covering the top of it.

You just have to do the work. Remove the top fan first. The wires are not ziop tied in just on the hooks and they're in there tight. After the top fan is out, you'll have an easier time getting the rear out. You can bend those hooks down a little too.

First up I don't have a velociraptor, 320gb Caviar Blue.
The xbox is getting its internet connection from the server via ICS & media sharring. Also with the old server I had a FTP connection to it. Haven't got around to it this time because I know I am going to be reformating for a dual boot soon.
The whole setup is as follows.

Under the desk is a old 1.4ghz athlone, on the desk is the i5 Dark Demon, both running through a USB KVM(+audio) switch. Then the Dark Demon is hooked up to the Sony Bravia 32" via vga cable. The xbox is on the network (as mentioned above) & connected to the Bravia via component HD cable. Then the lappy
is also on the network. It sits on my custom made height ajustable table (also used for xbox steering wheel)
All of the above is able to run through my Sony 200w RMS amp and 100w RMS(each) speakers, which also rus through the Sakyno amp and Dixon speakers. Every now and then for kicks I hook up a JBL 15" EON with the base cranked up. Also the xbox 360 controllers hook up to the PC via USB cable.

(I love sound )






There is a nice spot on the inside. On the left hand side of the 5.25"drive rack. You can stack stickers(almost like car mod stickers on a modded car) up/down here ->
Where did you get that hard drive cooler?

NakedIt(the place I got what seems to be the last set of RED ccfl's in the country), a small computer shop in South Africa. It was on clearance sale for around $6. It only brings down the temps on the WD by 1-2c, but the drive never goes over 29c. I think I should go see if I can get another matching (for future raid config), before they run out.
