If you are reffering to the scout light switch on the front bezell. You might want to take a look at the molex that supplies it, it uses the 5v line. So anything tapped off this uses 5v. Not a problem though, just wire up sets of 2 x 3v LEDs in series and then no need for a resistor.

So, I've spent some time hunting for a video card with the following specifications while comparing to the 3850:
  • Minimum 512MB
  • 256-bit interface
  • Around the $90.00 price range
I can empathize with your friend's current situation a little better now.

However, hopefully this list of finds will be of some assistance...

VisionTek 900125
Refurbished

This seems to be the same VisionTek New from BestBuy for a bit more money. This one too but in the $89.99 price.

BFG GeForce 7300 GT
Interface bit not listed in details

Sapphire ATI Radeon HD4650
Again, interface is not listed - Guess you got to call them

It's a tough find. Good luck, bud. If you do go with one of these retailers, be sure to check their rating on ResellerRatings.com

Hope I didn't waste your time on those links

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...

i have everything for the liquid cooling system except the rads.
A rad in the top will NOT fit unless you go fanless, cause it will hit the top screws on the CPU waterblock. I Currently have like 1 cm clearance between the 140mm and my screws.

a Rearmounted whould probably be able too work in 2 ways, either you just get a passthrough plate for the PCI-e cover slots or you can (this require modding) Drill 2 holes in the top just above the rear 120mm fan and use 2 Bulkhead fittings and 2 45 degree fittings on the inside of the case, this whould give a very neat and clean connection between the rad and the case itself (I'm acctually considering this but i don't have the funds or heatload for this)

It is also ofcourse possible too mount a 120mm fan on the inside of the case at the 120mm fan.

Your idea of placing the 240 rad in the side panel might become difficult considering the amount of space inside of the caseand if you do this you will probably need a few 90 degree bends too make it easier too even connect all the tubes.

Ah so something like this then?



How many sets of fan LEDs and/or CCFLs do you think I could daisy chain like this before it's just too much?

Thanks for the feedback!!

Yes, thanks Enigma.

I wasn't aware acrylic sheets could be bent in such a way.

I looked through the original posting of Jolly-Swagman creating "The Sled"
Insane work! Great stuff!

well i was hoping my stuff would be in yesterday (b-day woot!) but its not. :-( so i still have to weight a couple days for my stuff. this is getting really frustrating.... :-( when i get it you gents (and ladies?) will be the first to know. but yea. i have more than a few ideas i want to try on my scout when i actually get it.. i already have most of the supply i will need for every thing i have planed (new window and a terminal block and some other small stuff) but yet im STILL waiting on my case... and the rest of my components but im getting some money back for the wait from the supplier i dealt with. (but next time im just gona spend the extra money on using the egg)

Thanks for the feedback!!
So I am still unsure if you want to use the switch thats already on the front usb bezell ?
If so then you would have to say good bye to the standard LED's in the fans. That circuit uses 5v, not sure if the switch could handle 12v.
If you want it to controll a 12v circuit whilst maintaining the standard fan LED's, then use a relay -> http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...-switch-3.html
