Alright guys... I've narrowed it down to the Scout and the Sniper for my next case. I like the Sniper because there's TONS of room inside (a guy brought one to a recent lan party), but they are still huge and expensive.

I like the Scout because its compact and sleek, but I'm worried that its too small. I see pics with a full length VGA card in there, and it looks like the 6 pin barely has room (which is the problem with my current case). Is it really as tight as it looks? How did the build go?

The Video card that you see is the XFX 8800 GT.
As a builder and a Modder I would have to tell you that I would not ever be a part of a club of a case that was too tight to place a kickxxx Video card into. This case is not small. It is just well constructed for maximum efficiency of room and space.

A Few random pic to let you know just how much room this tight little case has in it.. Not one millimeter of space was wasted on this case. It is very well thought out and should be the first on your list if you move your system around much. The handles on this thing don't bend one iota when lifted at full weight.

I might be getting one of these for my new PC but i once read that it is a bit small and if the SATA adapters on the MOBO are not facing upwards you wouldn't be able to plug the HDD"s in .... Is this true? MOBO: Gigabyte EX58-UD4P...

Really liking this case apart from being a bit cramped at the top (if you have a HSF) and will really squish a GTX275 (about 1cm to spare?)

Just use non-90 degree SATA cables and it'll work fine. Mine do. There's 11.5" for video cards to fit in so I'm sure GTX275 will fit. Any more questions?

Thanks for the fast reply, hehe will purchase with my system soon...

How do you put those LED's n stuff? As most is red, i might add some more lights and stuff so off

Oh kinda off topic but with HSF's Would it be okay to install a custom one AFTER i get my system (like a month later, as i can't afford one right now) and is the case big enough for most?

Not much of a LAN gamer, so the handle is awkward but damn...All black...lovely

Look at the pics in my build log in my sig. I have one of the largest HSF's in existence. If you mean cold cathodes, you just buy em then plug em in molex. Also, the LEDs in the stock fans are kinda weak. You don't NEED to replace em but you can definitely get stronger, brighter ones.
