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.
I'm not trying to flame you, you wanted opinions so that's mine. It is essentially a Scout case though so you do still belong on this thread. Heck, K10 doesn't have his scout anymore but he's still part of the family. Stick with us and we'll help you out as much as we can.
I have to agree with you Bri, I hate to say...but I feel as if Corey has butchered his scout, sorry Corey

My wifeypoo didn't even recognise the case as the same one I (we) have...

Yup, shorten the tubing a bit, and maybe play around with the location of the components...it's just my 2cents worth, feel free to ignore it.

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
I too wouldn't have anything mounted externally on a case, just isn't appealing in my opinion...

I dunno, I hate to bag other scout owners or modders, but some mods and what not just look 'wrong', but to each his own.

i dont need to shorten my tubing, i need NEW tubing. my tubing is too stiff. the stress of the stiff tubing is bending my plexi.

the whole idea was to make it no longer recognizable as a cm storm scout. a good mod imo looks nothing like the original. no one should be able to tell what it was in the first place. it should look totally new like you made it.

i didnt get the cm storm scout because i liked the handle or because the slick black was cool. i got it for a few reasons. powder coated interior, it is steel, strong, and has good cable management. and it was the best price/performance.

all the other cases in its price range did not fit my criteria.

Hey bud.. Yeah know. We all like anyone who is creative with there case, hole comp. what ever. And like eveyone else; thrown in me '2' cents.
Sounds like your offended by what some of us are saying... You shouldn't be. No one in here means no 'Disrespect'. It's more like; what else can you do with it to tighten it up. You got a good thing going.
Damn brother, It's nicer then mine for G-D sake...

Agreed. I think most of us do.... Some of the members here are pure
pro's at what they do. Take a look at some of the rigs on the 1,2, & 3
pages. They are just great peaces of work. So please take look at some of them if you haven't already. As for not having the funding. I hear yeah. I my-self have been out of work now for over a year. So believe
me. 'I hear You'. Anyway, the point is that if you like it, well thats
what counts. Take a and see what you can come up with... Remember, we are all here to help each other. I'm basicly new here & everytime I have Question to ask, The Scouts of this 'Case ARMY'
are here at a moments notice. Ok, I'm spuwin
Good Luck and Welcome to 'The Cooler Masters: Storm Scout Club' sir.

"The Scout of any fire team is always the most stealthy and the most intelligent of the group. It is his mission to seek out all enemy targets and report their whereabouts back to Command."

While I agree that your case mods are a bit shocking to those of us who love the scout lines, your pursuit of perfection for your needs in the battle against the enemy of heat and stock performance is in the highest order of conduct and duty of a Scout. You have taken the conditions of the field and used them to your advantage to win the outcome. As a ranked Captain of this club I hereby grant you rep+ for pushing the envelope of what the Storm Scout can accomplish for each individual owner and the advancement of the Scout team as a whole. Carry on troop!

I went to Fry's (because I was too anxious to wait for Newegg to ship) and picked up the CM Storm Scout. WOO!

GREAT CASE! Love it! Previously my system was named "Project Blue v1" but with the casing upgrade, I just HAD to give it a better name... Thus, EXODUS was born.

I love the tool-less drive bays, the wire organization, ventilation support, and over sleek design.

I have PM'd the OP author, and have placed the PHP into my signature. Although I am new to mod's and overclocking, I have been learning PC hardware for the last couple years, and looking to learn more.

Thanks all!
Welcome to the club Scout. We'll have to see some pics when that camera is charged. That's an order

Anyways, I'm assuming you are referring to the front i/o panel area? I only really started to work out how much space I had till I removed the top section of the case... I pulled out the esata and sound as well, as they were just an inconvenience...

I have all my sketchups and ideas written down in my workbook, but that seems to have grown legs and walked off...when I 'locate' it again, I'll post all the details and what not...I don't have the energy to do it all again

Silly me, I still havn't found a use for one of the momentary switches I added back when I did the front i/o panel, but I think it looks better with 2 there, besides there is a gaping hole behind it
Ok, I am going to have to wing it :s Best when everything is in pieces to make a mockup panel and see if it all fits.

I wonder if anyone here would appreciate this -> http://cmss.dev.x10hosting.com/
I set it up I am not sure if anyone would actually us it though I think it would make it far easier to manage peoples build images and so on.

I can give admin priv's to anyone that should have them, unfortunatly I cannot revoke my own admin priv's though, but seeing as it is on my hosting account, I think I should have some part of the action. If anyone acctuallly thinks that this should be used and it starts getting used, I will lash out on a *.com for the gallery.
