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.

Hey clee413,
I have been waiting for someone to answer your question about the hdd cover measurements, but since no one did I was glad to hear that you went ahead and found out yourself. What were the final measurements you came up with for the acrylic hdd cover?

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.
Looking forward to it. Also, you mentioned we can pay you shipping prices for those acrylic pieces? Once you figure out the measurements for the false floor and HDD cover, I would like some pieces of acrylic to use for that purpose Thank you very much.

Dear CMSS Club,
Sometimes even a great company like Newegg can drop the ball. Those of you that know my posts over the past few months may recall that I bricked a Sapphire HD 3850 AGP card and Newegg replaced it. Great Job! Newegg. The replacement card worked great until I built my new rig and when I tried to use it for my buddies rig that I'm giving him it had died. I dunno how, but it had white bars across the screen and the puter couldn't even get past post. So Newegg issued another RMA to replace the second card. SWEET! However, the item is currently out of stock, actually deactivated and the RMA wil be changed from replacement to refund. Now that would be Ok if I could get another card with same performance for the same money. The only thing they (Newegg) have that's close in performance is a Powercolor HD 4670 AGP for $20 more. Sounds alright, right? Wrong. Even though it's a 1gig card it runs the memory on a 128-bit bus GDDR3. The Sapphire was only 512mb but ran on a 256-bit GDDR3 bus and with my buddies monitor size ,17", I'd rather him have the 256-bit bus and 512mb of memory vs the other way around on the 4670. Could I be wrong though? Is the 4670 a vast enough improvement over the 3850 as to not worry about the half-sized memory bus? I need some help sorting this out.

I measured, but I haven't yet tested the measurements yet.

Here are the measurements I will be testing tonight: (all sizes are in inches)
  • Width of opening of HDD bay to cover: 4 3/8"
  • Width of opening of HDD bay, in between HDD latches: 4 3/8" (minus 1/16")
  • Height of opening of HDD bay to cover: 7 5/8" (minus 1/32")
What I have done today was cut 2 pieces of foam board.

(1) 4 3/8" x 7 5/8
(1) 4 3/8" (minus 1/16") x 7 5/8" (minus 1/32")

I also cut (1) piece of plexi glass and spray painted it Satin Black. I'll call this piece of plexi my "Rough Draft".

In about 2 hours from now, I'll be testing it & I will be glad to share the results with pictures if it helps you.

To summarize:
>>Refunded full amount
>>Originally ordered 3850 AGP
>>Available new order (+$20.00) 4670 AGP
>>3850: 512MB / 256-bit BUS
>>4670: 1GB / 128-bit BUS
I'm not much help since my knowledge of Video Cards are low, especially AGP cards.

From an experienced online consumer stand point, I would be glad the money was fully returned to me, and restart the search completely.

From a technical point, memory size & bus speed seem to be just as important as the other. Are there no cards in the price range with both 1GB and 256 bit bus?

Yes. If you provide the shipping fee's to me via PayPal, I will gladly provide a cut to size piece of clear acrylic. The acrylic will work for the HDD bay cover, but I don't see it working for the false floor since acrylic cannot be bent.

I will be sure to post a reply when the project is done, with images, so you can see if you would like me to mail you a piece. Stay tuned...
