My current PSU is Antec True Power Trio. The wires are pre-inserted with (and I don't know the technical name for this) mesh-flexible stocking-like thing that helps organize wires. But the problem is they are quite "fat" so its been a challenge to figure out how to hide my wires as well as images of those who are using the Corsair.
Corsair wins many PSU Brand of the Year awards and is very trusted and affordable.

People refer to that as being "sleeved". When I put my right side panel back on(when I still had mine and even with my current Antec 900), I laid the case down on my bed and pushed the side panel on with my body weight and slid it closed....then screwed it on.

I know I'm crazy obsessive compulsive but I would rather neither fans attached rather then 1. Seeing only 1 of 2 installed would bother me too much.

Sleeved! Thank you. I will add that to the memory bank.

I am opening my panels now to see if i can figure out some methods to hide wires. Last night (after completing the build) I was just too tired. I spent a few hours rebuilding into the CMSS cause I was being "extra" careful since I havent worked with such a modern case before. My previous one was a hand me down. Thanks for the tip though!

Right now I'm a broke high school student so the money isn't exactly flowing in, so the hardware is going to remain adequate at best for now, but the next project is definitely going to be replacing the side window which I will keep you guys posted on. I love this thread and I really respect your guys opinions and I am trying to learn so let me know what you think. Thanks
Ya those MNPCTECH grills and thumbscrews are not cheap. Good job! rep+

it was hard work painting this GLASS mouse pad
Ok, I bought a steel series mouse pad but it's not what I thought it would be, it's very thin but it sticks to the desk like glue, no moving around while I'm gaming. Glass you say? Do you have a part number or better, a link to where I can get it?
I love the Blue of course, both of our computers are blue themed the dragon is great too but I really want to do a line drawing. You'll see why when I get the time to do it.
I'm pretty out of it so I'm not going to write much.

@General Enigma, got my sig lines messed up the other day, thought one of the troops had a Velociraptor, he doesn't, his is a WD blue drive. You are the one with the Velociraptor, so, what kind of temps does it run at?

About the 2 P55 Evga motherboards. I will ask and find out for sure exactly what the difference is and then post it here. The spec sheets read the same, with the exception being the FTW says it can handle 600W of power. Which makes no sense because most boards can handle that now.

i gotta get that 5.25 io plate, make the door close properly, manage my tubes, make the door fit, etch the dragon, make res not crooked SOMEHOW; then im pretty much done.

any idea how i would submit this mod for 2010 mod competition since i got laid off and have no funds to build what i was planning on? i dont even know HOW to submit my mods.
Sorry Corey but if you want the truth, I don't like it. It does defeat the whole purpose of buying the Scout, take off lots of things, add lots of things and it's still a Scout. When you take off the handles, add rads to the right side and put in a Res that should be in a full tower, you're defeating the purpose of having a Scout.

Shorten the water cooling lines, put the res outside the case, put the rad behind the case and put the handles back on and I'll like it much more.

Here is my CPU-Z.

Do you have it set to BSOD you? If so, you should get an error message, write it down and I'll try to help you out.

But I must say (and this will be repeated when the images are posted) I am a blue LED fan. Although, I agree red goes with the theme of the case, I will be changing some things in the near future.

Also, I read (somewhere in this thread) using "Satin" to paint the optical drives. Now, I am assuming the face of the optical drives can be removed in order to paint without damaging the drive? If so, link available for further explanation? Thanks!

To those with CMSS and CM Hyper 212+ air cooler: Have you attempted (fail or success) installing 120mm fans onto the window's slots? I keep staring at it, and seems to me even if it would fit, it would be way too tight and the heatsink may damage the plastic fan. Tips?
I've tried it. I depends on the version of the 212+ that you get, if you get the one with wire clips it will probably work. The ones with the plastic fan clips will interfere with the window fans. Unless your mobo is flatter and the Cpu isn't as high as an i-7.
Tips, put in the 212+ and cut a new window and move the fan holes forward. Others on this thread have done the new window and they've come out great, search back through the posts and you'll see them.

So, not a complete answer yet but the FTW has 12 phase DrMos PWM. The non FTW board, the one you guys have has 8 Phase DrMos PWM but the frequency on both boards maxes out at the same 1189Khz.

This is the other answer I got:
"FTW has 12 vs. 8 phase regulator, low inductance capacitors in the cpu socket, an extra 8 pin power connector for the cpu. It also has an "addon board" that allows temp monitoring and overclocking voltage control for some voltages without going into BIOS or software. Also the PCIE slot layout is different. From ATX connector block to the edge of the board the 655 is 16x/16x/4x and the FTW is 16x/4x/16x for "enhanced cooling" supposedly by separating your SLI'd cards a bit. Oh and FTW and above has triple BIOS instead of the 2 in the 655. I'm sure there's some other differences but those are the major ones I think."

The higher end X58's have 6 bios and the classified have 8 bios capability.

look up the steelseries experience I-2

dude this case mod is just practice for my thermaltake armor mx+

it's my first extreme case mod it tought me many things.

I would NEVER have a res, rad, or any internal component dangling off the side of my case or hanging from the back. My rad is resessed into the side panel which I don't like, but seeing as microcenter emplooyees couldn't find me a microres, and I got that res 15 bucks off from open box, I worked with what I got. I plan on having an inverse tvirus res like that in my armor and a top window like that. The rad can easily fit inside my armor. So can the res. I might even make my own io panel on my armor
