Joined the Scout club this week and I love the case so far, definitely an upgrade from the Centurion 5 I used in my last build. My only problem is the rear fan is so weak, will have to replace it eventually. I already added 2 CM 120mm Long Life Silent Fans to the side panel.

This thread is awesome! Here are some pic's of my Scout in which I have used alot of ideas from all the great cases here. Thanks to seven9st surfer for the window and psu cover mods.
Ideas for others which i used (if you have the time and patience):
Painted the card reader and optical drives satin black.
Used "stealth" optical drive/bezel mod.
Sleeved all wiring (independently sleeved 24 pin sucked ass) except sata cables.
I used green/white/red heat shrink for an Italian theme
I did take some work log pics if so desired.
Keep up the good work here!

Sigh, the whole changing of coolant and what not has been harder than expected.

The syringe which the dye bomb came in was firstly leaking and then when I attempted to squirt a few drops into the water, it squirted out sideways and went everywhere...so that was fun.

Then a few leaks appeared because I changed some barbs, and the new barbs suck...and yeah you know the rest.

So, the scout is currently all over the place, and I'm irritated lol, so I've left it for today... Mrs Photonmoo even tried to help, but lol it wasn't enough, all the components along with us aren't playing together nicely.

Wowies, that's gorgeous man!!! you've done really well.

The back of the case and the sleeving are the picks of the lot I think, it's clean as! All you need now is a hdd bay cover, and it'll top it off beautifully. (feel free to ignore that last comment, as you may think differently )

Nice work so far too man!, you have a awesome rig , just one bit of criticism...some cable management will help, nothing overly major, just a few pulls, tugs, cable ties, stuffing etc here and there and she will be gold

I got Crysis Warhead yesterday
Install took longer than I thought. Once installed ran the graphics self set thing. It came up with all gamer spec and no AA. I didn't settle for that Everything at Enthusiast (except geometry is locked on gamer) with 8AA at a res of 1360 x 768 and I get a low of 21fps in combat, cut scenes are about 40fps and in the main menu 142fps Damn but does it look good, now I see why every one says it has the best graphics for a game

To those that cut out the bullseye on the front of the Scout, what tool did you use? I don't have a dremel so I just wanted to get your ideas as to what would be the best way to go about doing it. Thanks.
