I'm looking to put together a cheapish upgrade to my ancient machine and while poking around on newegg I noticed that the Scout was on sale for $80 with free shipping. Although It wouldn't have been in the budget at the normal $120, it may now be a viable option. I'm concerned after reading some reviews that there could be issues with the front ports and fan wiring and I may be putting my other components at risk if I'm not willing to test every connection and replace a few fans prior to settling into normal use. I'll be running 2 hard drives and 1 optical at the moment and all my other components should fit (no massive video cards or anything) so perhaps if I can anticipate issues with the Scout someone would be so kind as to suggest a reasonably priced alternative of similar size. Any help would be appreciated (and sorry if I missed some obvious answers, 600+ pages is a lot to look through).
Believe me, the scout is rock solid. The stock fans are great actually, they are quiet, push a decent amount of air and look good doing it. You shouldnt have any problems, and will be very happy about your purchase.

After upgrading the fans in Mindy's Scout build I have leftover fans. So would anyone like any Stock red fans (I have 2) with the wires that work on the top LED switch. I also have the 140mm that goes in the blowhole, I personally really don't like it but it's worth the cost of shipping to you, it's yours! Oh, that's it too, just shipping, they're useless to me but I know a lot of you AMD guys like red fans. PM me to get them.
I also have a UV Blue CCFL circle fan, it's this one: http://www.svc.com/ccf120uvbl.html It says blue but it's the fan that is blue, the CCFL is UV
Attachment 145959

I have no use for UV and Mindy has a rare disorder of her skin, she can't handle UV light. Her ancestors were Jewish Vampires.

I've got other stuff (including a 1000W PSU) but they will be for sale or trade so I'll post them on the appropriate board and put a link up here.

The Scout is a great case! I also changed from a Dark Knight push-pull cooler to a H50 Push pull setup and seeing great results. This case will be my platform for a I7 970 Hexacore build in late fall.
Why late fall? They'll be out by the end of April. I'll be waiting for overclock results and probably at least the second stepping. OTOH, I'll probably buy a Fermi Video card as soon as someone can hold them in stock. Online stores still can't keep up with the demand for 5870X2's. What are they, the 5970 or 5890?

5970. I'm lovin' my 5770, but so much for AMD/Ati saying that they'll sell a card for over $500.

Cool build and Excellent Video. Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was watching it but my eyes aren't what they used to be..

Youre in like Flynn.. Duude. Extra Rep for presentation.

Just some advise.. I would move that Red CCath to the back in the corner. you get more light and you cover up the tube that way. Try it and see what you think.

I drilled an filed a rectangular hole in the usb bezel for my cfl switch and mounted that in there
Cable braided almost every cable in the box, didn't do the fan controller because ran out of braid.
I installed the H50 with the R4 push/pull in the drive bay( Just a note for others, the H50 takes up 3.5 x 5.25" drive slots).
Still waiting on the plexi for the side window, so I just stuck the corsair fan on there plugged in to the JPWR header(monitors vreg temps).
I cut out the top 140mm blow hole mesh and the front 140mm intake mesh.
I turned the antec true power power supply upside down so it extracts out of the case and the blue light doesn't kill the red lights.
