Does the Mugen 2 fit in your Scout with the top 140mm fan installed? I'm torn between it and the DK as well.

Yeah...there aren't really any great coolers out for that socket yet. But it's only been out for 2 days so I guess it's fine. The Zalman's the best looking one at the moment(on newegg at least) but it's ridiculously overpriced, like all Zalmans, and doesn't perform as great as it should.

Grr, I see xoxide.com are having a closing down sale, everything is going for cheap...just they don't ship outside the US & Canada

I was hoping to get a few more goodies to pimp out the Scout.

I wanna add a few switches to the front of the Scout, on one of the spare 5,25" bay







I was thinking, I can hook the Key Switch (Momentary type lock barrel) to the power button, so you would have to unlock the it before you can push the power button, or even just use that to start the pc up...

Something likes this?

I'll probably scrap getting the last switch, it looks ugly... get anti-vandal switches with red leds in the middle

I was thinking about removing the lowest 5.25" mesh cover, and making a switch panel to fit in its place. Here's some ideas I had for what the switches would do...

1. PSU cut-off switch. It's a pain having to reach behind the case to shut the PSU off when you're messing around in the case, which led to this idea. It would involve opening the PSU, but it's not that hard of a mod. Another big plus...shut the PSU off when your PC is off, because it still drains a small amount of electricity when off. Think green & save money!

2. Power switch, just like photonmoo mentioned above. Put the switch in one of the two lines for the case power switch. Gotta flip the switch on before the case switch will work to turn on the PC.

3. Fan LED switch. Either run these on the same switch as #2, or separate. Turn your fan LEDs on and off as you please.

4. Auxiliary lighting switch. All your LED bars, Cathodes, Neons, etc...wire 'em up to a switch so you can turn them on and off.

5. Got a really loud PCI-slot fan to keep your GPU cool, but when you're not gaming those noisy fans annoy you? Not anymore when you have them wired to a switch!

6. Reset switch. Your finger too big to hit the reset switch? Don't feel bad, mine are too, that button is frickin' small. I don't think my daughter could even press that, and she's only 5! Wire it to a new momentary switch, meaning it's only active when switched up and held, or pressed and held...cuts out when released, just like the small reset button already on the case.

Think about it...switching on like 5 switches before turning the system on, it'll feel like you're in a frickin' helicopter or some sort of ridiculously expensive exotic car that has an obscene amount of switches you need to engage before starting.

There's all sorts of cool things you could do with a switch panel on the front, and the only downside I can think of is the fact you'll have switches sticking out of the front of the case which kind of take away from that flat/clean look the front of the case offers. You may even be able to mod them in to the top of the case, the flat/top area above the I.O. panel that is the perfect place for like 5 switches...I am not sure what's immediately under that plastic, so you may want to look in to that before you start drilling holes.

I'm going to order 2 of these switches, I've needed one in the past and never found one. I don't need them now but it would be nice to have handy for the future.
Great find Enigma!

Hey guys back again..I was thinking of some things i could do to my scout and decided i want some UV action going on. I want come here and see what kind of suggestions on what parts or areas should get the UV effect treatment. I was going along the lines of UV sata cables and maybe painting my fans with the UV paint. What do you guys think?
