Can someone confirm whether a Tuniq Tower 120 will fit in the Scout?

As much as I appreciate my H50, I think I’ll get more out of a high end air cooling solution both in terms of temps and peace of mind.

from what i understand about the H50, there are no air coolers that beat it on temps. For peace of mind, understand that i think only 1 person(out of thousands) that has a h50 on this site has had a leak, and it is non-conductive.

Will do. I'll post pictures of an un-boxing, and completed installation. I'm eager to see how the round fan will look and install.

**Edit**
A quick update regarding the HDD cover and false floor... I have taken measurements last night & I will make a few templates with pieces of foam-core and other various things.

The CM STORM SCOUT HAS:

CPU Cooler Specifications

With 2 Side Panel Fans Installed.
(146 mm.) TALL... From CPU to Top Side Panel Fan Distance.

With Only the Bottom Side Fan installed
171 mm. Tall from CPU to Side Panel Distance NO Fan installed on the Top of the Side Panel

Heatsink Dimensions 120 x 120 x 158mm to 169mm is the optimum size range for this case.

Top of the case to the Bottom or Vertical dimensions of the case should not exceed 120mm. Side to side dimensions 140 mm.

Okay so if the L = 131mm. Max 140mm. Thats okay. H = 150.7 Max is 158 to 169 without fan installed in window. That's okay.. And Wdth = 112.3 MAX is 120 mm there... so Thats okay..

Yes.. it will be a Tight fit. But it will fit with No Fan on the Top Window but you can still have one on the bottom..


Now it fits the Case.. What about the board.?



I Found like one picture of this board air cooled with a V8/ Everybody else is water cooling it.

I think the Tuniq will fit in both senarios but I would go with the H-50. I haven't heard one bad thing about the cooler and its the lowest cost solution for water cooling.

For those of you interested, I just finished a test run:
  • 1 test piece of Acrylite Acrylic Sheet (Plexiglass)
  • Satin, white spray paint

*Note: Image is off the web - Don't have my camera with me

Result:
  • Seems like it will work fine
  • I will be going to the hardware store during lunch to get black satin spray paint
  • Noted problems were dust and dirt particles from outdoors - I will attempt to paint the final piece in doors in a controlled area
  • Still un-sure if primer is required - members, please reply if you have spray painted plexi-glass before

Just by mistake.. it stuck fast and hard with an acrylic paint.. duuu.. of coarse right... But you need to clean that plex really good then wipe with a lint free rag after that. I don't think that you will need primer.. that stuff sticks good. Just do really quick strokes with your paint on your first coat to give what I call a stick coat then let it dry and that will be your primer.. Very thin.. Your build up will kill you. As least amount of coats as you can.
I use the Dupla color brand and the Krylon brand with the fusion plastic mix.
About the dust problem.. Most of that is from static Electricity pulling the particles towards it.
I have found that a solution of Dawn Dishwashing liquid.. One teaspoon. and the rest water in a spray bottle will degauss the plexi and will not leave a residue.. if You wipe it till its dry. Works wonders. I was in the cleaning business for 18 years and I know it works.

Can you test and see if there is something that will etch it just in a confined area.
