Good evening. I've been following this thread for a while now and have really learned a lot from you all, just haven't decided to join. Now that I've got my Scout to the point where I could proudly display it and maybe contribute something to the club, I figured I might as well share my work and accomplishment. In this pics are various shots of my organization attempts, I will post some exterior shots after this due to the attachment limit. For those who were asking about how to hide the cables for the OCZ 700W modular PSU, I bought 8pin and 24pin extensions and routed them behind the motherboard tray. I have replaced the front and rear fans with stock Antec 900 black LED fans so blend in with the Scout's interior. I didn't like the red and the Scout's stock fans aren't of the best quality, I will get another pair of the same Antec fans and replace the top 140mm and to put in the upper most 5.25 bays. I've got a 12" and a 4" UV CCFL inside the case to light up the GPU cooler and the PCI slot covers which are UV reactive. I'm gonna replace the acrylic panel as well later. At first when I got my Scout I was a little annoyed and kept comparing it to my Antec 900 which I had to sell, but over time I've grown to love the Scout and all the hard work paid off. Cheers to a great thread/club.

Sweet dude, my old case was the 900 also which I sold last year before I moved abroad for a few months. I considered getting another until I saw the scout which I have to say I've fallen in love with, and I prefer it over the 900 by a longshot.. welcome aboard !

Thanks! Yeah I see no point in getting the 900 back now that I can combine the best features of both into one machine. The things that got me were the handles and black interior over the 900, but I wasn't happy with the airflow/LED colors so I opted to change that.

So guys.. Look at this page and see which one you would choose.

Good to know intank is offering you a better temp. I've got the rad set as exhaust. Plus, I've always liked the front mount because of the way the tubing is elongated. Feels to me like the more straightened tubes would give an optimal flow of the liquid. That makes me wonder if the temp decrease could be (at least) partially due to the liquid flow.

Last night it was 30, the night before it was 22! The sun goes down what, in 2 hours and I guarantee the temp will crash about 45 minutes before it does. I'm seriously thinking of uncovering the A/C!

For those of you who don't know about Nevada, we don't do Humid too well.

My last build, well as far as a whole new kit goes. I have a new PSU on the floor right now, I have things to do with Mindy's machine but I don't know if I'd buy a whole new rig again. Mindy's cost me $2400- to put together, sure it's 1st class piece of kit but I can't see doing that again. Mine was a whole lot more and I'm not even finished with it! You know how much it costs to run 2 SSD's in Raid0? I wouldn't trade it for the world but it's expensive man.
Mostly it's because we'll be getting a real house out in Spanish Springs, half of the deal is done, we're just waiting for the banks to finish arguing.
Oh, the thing I said about the next version of consoles coming out, that may change my mind about computer gaming. So that's what, 4 reasons I won't build a new machine again. Upgrading may happen but one from scratch, I don't think so.

Oh, rep+ to Repton, I wish I would have moved Mindy's cooler to the front. Now I'm going to either push/pull it or shroud it. Hmm, maybe go external to the back, that would be an adventure!
Weather here in Vegas has been erratic too. For 1, a late winter, and already its freezing during the early morning/late nights, and hot during the afternoon. This weather usually causes me to catch a cold.

That is a ton of dough spending on rigs. Off the top of my head, I think I have spent a total of (roughly) $900 ~ $1000 on my rig, so far. That's after a time span of about 2.5 years. Granted, I've spent about $600 in the last 2 months of that $1000. I blame it on OCN's inspirations, lol.

Welcome to the Scouts! I agree with you about the stock fans, at least the Red LED ones. After I let my bank account rest up for a few months, I think I'll be upgrading the top fan and 2 front (added 1) fans. I believe it was Noctua fans that come highly recommended.

I really don't think that $180 justifies the video quality improvement. I've been mulling over getting another 5770 for Xfire or waiting till next year and pulling the trigger on a 5970, since with my MOBO it'll fit with no case mods, when the price and availability are better. To me anything over $400 for a video is not sensible for my budget anyway, so in the end I'll probably go for another 5770 and xfire. Go with the 5770.
Damn it Rocker.. You have such a compelling arguement. Hell I could x Fire the 5770 and get 5970 quality and only be using 36 watts of juice when I am not gaming. But Why XFX. is it the cooler fan. is it more quiet.

Is yours like this...



or this.



But I really want one of these though..

Why XFX. Before my MOBO died I was running mine (like the pic in your quote) at 1040 core/1350 memory while gaming. It idled at 43 -45c with the reference cooler and to me that was alright because I switched to stock speeds while not gaming. Temp under furmark stability test with post processing maxed out at 76c. The fan was loud because using the same utility I was overclocking with, MSI Afterburner, I changed the fan speed curve to suit my needs. However, while gaming I never heard it except during quite parts of the game but it wasn't hairdryer obnoxious and I could live with it cuz it was doing it's job. Keeping that R470 chip cool so I frag the hell out people. While not gaming at stock speeds it idled anywhere around 32-33c and maxed out at just over 40c and was quiet as church mouse which I like. No mad hunting up and down fan speeds. The final reason is even though it doesn't say it on Newegg, it has a double lifetime warranty. So you can sell it later if you want and whoever buys it gets the second lifetime warranty. Plus as you'll no doubt read in my later posts it was price vs performance. I just can't justify spending money for something that doesn't deliver the BANG for the buck spent and for my budget it delivered big time
