Hello all, what a wonderful thread this has been for me as a new owner. I have very recently built this latest scout based rig and I must say this is the best case ever.


My cables are mostly very tidy but as you can see the secondary motherboard power lead is still exposed and thanks to this thread I will soon get the needed extension piece and route it around the back for extreme tidyness.

Many thanks to all the contributers in this thread.

Exactly what I was thinking when I saw the post. You wont get it to fit unless you either cut the drive cage, cut out the drive cage or get that mobo that Rockr69 has, then it'll slide right into the bottom of the optical drives slot.

Question: on the V8, are you supposed to be able to tighten the thing down as tight as you want? On mine, if I tighten it too much it kinda loosen back a notch (if that makes any sense). Im assuming that is a safety thing to ensure that people dont over tighten the bracket and risk breaking the MoBo.

Yeah those temps are from core temp. My thing is that my speeds are stock. I have never over clocked this thing yet because I want to ensure I get my temps as low as possible before I do. I could understand these temps if I overclocked but that just isnt the case.

I know that these questions get tiresome, and I'm sorry if I annoy anyone by asking these questions again. Its just that I know there is something wrong and I just cant figure it out. BTW if anyone recalls any of my numerous other posts about this. My temps at one time were about 29C idle/ web surfing before I took the case apart to hide my cables better and add some fans. They only shot up after I reassembled everything. THATS why Im so obsessed about it, lol.

Thanks again guys!
Don't worry about the questions, if something's wrong we'll try to work it out. On an i-7 the plate over the cores also works as a heat spreader. Ignore what AS says, put a rice size bead in the middle, use the flat part of the tube or a stiff piece of plastic and spread the TIM over the plate as even as possible. Man, if you can't work this out I have a thing of MX-3 that you can have. It's much more forgiving and it takes a few days or a week then it sets up hard and your temps go from like 40c to 28c over time. That's why I asked if you've tried it. PM me if you want it. If you're worried about annoying anyone PM me.

You still didn't say what your wifes setup is, it's hard to compare unless I know what you both have.

Frag, look at this: http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...i7-cooler.html
Kind of backed up my first thought when you posted originally that some chips are just hotter than others. I'm not saying we can't get it down but this is an example.

you can secure it either with double sided tape
or if your CD drive is on the second slot from the top, the fan should squeeze in there nicely
Ok, a few months, maybe weeks, maybe just a month, can you tell I'm bad at remembering time? Well, Kev_b gave me a link to a shroud that fits in the 5.25 bay, it may have been the Scythe, I messed up my links by trying to organize them so I can't find it but search for his posts and you'll find it.
Oh, Kev, you on today? Maybe you have the link??

Maybe so but what was that Tsunami in like the 50's where everyone ignored the warning and one town, was it Hilo, got wiped out? Get to high ground dude and take your Scout with you.

I just want to say.. Ahem. Hey Path, no fair! What Volts are you showing for your proc and Vreg? I mean, I can get to 4.2 no problem but it does get fairly hot. Maybe it's the P55 board, less electricity to do the same job.

An aside, Earthquakes, Tsunamis and now we're having a thunderstorm in Feb!! Not to mention Jolly's 50c+ temps in Austrailia, man this planet is having troubles!

The tsunami in Hilo was from a 1960 quake in Chile(same place) but that had a magnitude of 9.5 instead of 8.8. The water's receding a bit every now and then but it's not too exciting. I don't live in Hilo. I live like 10 miles away at ~500ft elevation. I don't have to worry....I still wonna see it though. I was watching the news for about an hour and it was very boring and repetitive.

Side note: I don't own a Scout anymore

Ah ha! I was close see! Ten years isn't that much, besides isn't 1960 the end of the 50's? Yah, 500ft is pretty far for water to climb, glad your safe.

Side note: We don't care, we're still one of the most active boards on OCN and want to keep it that way. Keep posting.

I'll give you tsunami updates....though I don't think it'll be amusing.

Yeah. I asked Enigma once I traded it for an Antec 900 if I was still welcome and since I still know my old Scout like the back of my hand he told me I could stay. I only traded my Scout for an Antec 900 because I really wanted to cut something up.....The Storm Scout is near perfect so it's a bit hard to do that.

Hello CMSSC

As some of you may have read from posts earlier this week, I purchased a new PS Unit: CORSAIR CMPSU-750HX 750W

My first modular PSU and I have taken a before & after image to share.

Also, if you are interested in the un-boxing of the PSU, I have posted the images in order in the Power Supply discussion section of OCN forum (Link).

Thanks again for your help (To those who helped me pick the right PSU).


A quick shot of the completed un-boxing:




Before - Say goodbye to the bird's nest:




During - The Squid is out:




After - Yay! No more bird's nest:



A vast improvement! I'm planning to pick up a new DVD-RW drive soon, mainly because the current one I have as a white face (replacing with a black). I'll be sure to get one with SATA data drive, so soon that big ugly IDE cable will be gone as well. Also, I plan to get a CPU 8-pin power port extender so I can move that cable behind the motherboard and hide that as well.

Okay. For those wondering. The tsunami warning was canceled. I knew it was gonna be weak but I didn't think it'd be as boring as it was. My girlfriend was getting all stressed out because I wasn't worried and she implied that I don't care about others. I, sadly, was hoping for some action so she'd feel better since I'd be wrong and all...but she's not really mad or anything anymore. I called her up and watched the news with her for about an hour(we're a bit apart now since she needed to go somewhere today).

So yeah...no tsunami. The water did recede and rush outward and stuff but then it just kept coming back in. There were times where it receded up to 100 feet(not on this island though).

Also,

@clee413 - Lookin good. I'd recommend running your 4/8pin mobo power cable through one of those cable management holes then running it through the CPU HSF retention bracket hole. It's a bit of a hassle but it looks nicer that way.

You went from cheap to Sheik. That is a very Nice PSU. One of the best replacement warranty that I have ever come across.
