Read though this First Masta21: Technology Guide To Building Your own PC Get a feel for 'Why', 'What', 'Were'...... Remember what
Enigma said: "It will be twice as nice".... Because you get to pick what ever you want to go into your case. One thing I disagree with this guide is I feel you should pick your case first. 'That's what your putting everything in' too show it off.
It's like a real nice Christmas Present wrap-up beautifully and when you open it up."POW" something wonderful is inside.. And the best part of that Difference alone is; 'You built it on your own', you did it all; 'You' picked it all out for your-self... If you let us help you, You'll come out with something you really appreciate!!! Next to someone else building it for you. READ,READ & READ again. That's my advice. I think anyone who build's their own feels the same way I do. We are all here for you Bud! Really this whole Web Site is. Everyone I've ever met or asked something was always very helpful. www.OverClock.net <<< is the Best site I ever came across.

1 post in 11 hours.

Well thought I would just check in and see whos doing what.

I just finished my Red u400 translucent side panel with a Coolermaster 1000RPM (124cfm) 200mm fan
I will post pics in a while. Now with the addition of that and the RAM cooler its feeling kinda crowded and wire managment went to the dogs.
Performance wise I can say I have drops on my system temp (sitting around 24c/26c idle/full tilt) and vreg is down by about 2-3c The red perspex hides all blue lights on the mobo and RAM cooler, only time they can be seen is if you look through the gapping 195mm hole.
I had doubts the standard plastic split rivits would do the job, but they held up great. I read somewhere that they are a tad tricky to get out, easy as pie though. Simply take a scalple or hobby knife and push the center pin out with very little pressure. Then pinch the left behind split pin with your fingers and it almost falls out.

EDIT:
Those temps are at stock 2.66mhz, I leave it at stock untill I want to play around.

Guys there are times I'm feeling some vibrations on my desk coming from my Scout. I presume thats the HDDs spinning or maybe even the PSU?

Granted, I've got a lot of HDDs in there - 4 to be exact. And one of them being a Raptor. I'm trying to sell some off.

In the meantime, what can I do to damped the vibrations? I know they have HD and PSU dampeners but 1, do they really work and 2, do they fit in the Scout?

Any HDD spinning over 5400rpm can make a case buzz, especially a raptor or velociraptor. There's disks to isolate them from the drive cage. Yes they really work and it's not a matter if they fit in the Scout but if they fit the part you're putting in. I have dampers on the fans in Mindy's window and under the PSU, the windows are 120mm becuase the fans are and the PSU is 140mm square because that's as close as I could find to fitting it, it works great! They're just thin little strips. Oh feet can isolate the whole thing. I don't know the size of the Scouts feet, here's some links: http://www.svc.com/acf3007-25b.html
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=23215
This isn't exactly case feet but it would work: http://www.petrastechshop.com/pegviabbl.html

All those places have drive isolation brackets and rubber disks for drives too. Oh, my system has a hummm, on and off every 10 seconds or so, if it didn't I would worry but it doesn't vibrate my desk.

So I've been rather impressed with this Case, as well as with this Thread! Actually had a chance to take a look at one of these cases while at MicroCenter yesterday...

Now, I currently have one on order from Newegg, which was cheaper then Microcenter! It shipped out today though they haven't given me Tracking #'s yet, I suspect it should arrive by Thursday!

It will be replacing the Case in my Sig rig which is so old its not even worth mentioning... I think its an old "Chenbro" entry level Server Tower that is actually a clone to an older, discontinued Antec full tower... Great case for an old Socket 939 Single Core build... but just doesn't have the air flow for these newer performance Quads

Got a "reference" Sapphire Radeon 5850; and a Phenom II x4 955; and a Corsair h50 on the way as well which will be going into this Storm Scout sometime this weekend!

Thanks for having such a great thread about this case, helped me learn a lot about it!
