Ok, some not so great phots of what I have done recently :
Phase 4
Desktop monitor stand
( no one ever comments in my gallery )

New side window
3mm Red u400 perspex. A 200mm hole cutout, with a CM storm force 200 (the fan is acctually 195mm)
I have said it already, but this brought down all my temps on a ****ED up scale.

Graphics card is down by 2c at full tilt.
CPU is down a degree or so.
System is 22c/23c at idle and 25c/26c at full tilt.
Vreg is 34c idle and 40c/41c full tilt.
(All are at stock 2.66ghz)
I would say this is a sure set way to beat the heat in the scout. Add/change as many fans as you like, this thing KILLS ALL.










I had to get this, and I am so glad I did. Its a great all round mouse. Love the profiles and the fact that you can do what ever you want. Always had troubles customizing my mice.

Desktop monitor stand
All spurred on by the want for a easy access good looking test PSU (after my nasty incident with a fan controller)
I used a ply wood wine box, cut up, drilled, sanded down and painted with 3 coats black enamel and a final coat of matt black high heat spray enamel.
Stuck 4 fans I had lying around in there for good messure, a strobing blue LED used in cars to give a nice water effect on the desk when I get stressed :s
1 powered Molex sticks out, firmly mounted with about half a glue stick, by the units I/O switch.









On another note. I have and I am sure everyone else has tried to put a 12" cathode in the bottom of the scout with no luck. I had a nifty idea, why not sand down the little block that stopping you on 2 sides of the cathode tube so that it slides in snuggly between the hdd cage and the side panel rail ?
I am going to attempt this in the next few days and will let you know the outcome.

That is one heck of a monitor stand. This may be a very novice question, but I have to ask, what is it doing? I'm sure there's something for it, I just haven't wrapped my head around it. Other then the fact that I don't know its purpose, it's one heck of a build. You took nothing, and made it into something! Fantastic!

Great job on the window mod too. What size fan are you using?

As far as shaving down the cubes on the ends of the CCFL 12"ers.. Let me know how that goes (along with the tools you decide to use). The thought did cross my mind.

Sorry I edited my post to inform about the window.

Its a 200mm (195mm when I messure) CM force storm 200.
Pushs around 124cfm I think.

The monitor stand like I said was so I could have 2 things. 1 a neat and easy to access 12v molex power supply on my desk and the other was to bring the LED screen to a better veiwing height. Also the fans when running stop any smoke(at least 2 types ) going anywhere near my scout.

@ Clee. Interesting, is it just my router then because I have no SSID broadcast and my refresh rate reads in ms not seconds? I have also seen on the Linksys board that most people with my router give up and either sell it, throw it away or just get a D-link because they can't get thier stuff to communicate.
Oh, it's a Linksys WRT160N V2.2, I never upgraded the firmware because those who did usually destroyed the router.

@ DefecT I really like the large fan and I've always liked the window without those grates on it. I don't think I've actually gone through your gallery. An oversight on my part. I do think the monitor stand is a great idea. I've been pondering what to do with my extra 480 PSU.

I have an ASUS M3A32MVP-WIFI board. I am currently getting ready to Crossfire 2 5770s.

I have 4 PCIe slots. Two are magenta but are no 1 and no 3. Is it possible for me to run

Crossfire in any slot of the motherboard as long as I have the Master in slot 1.

I want to hook it up in slot 1 and slot 3 which are both the blue ones. The other two are black.

I found the solution....

Both of the Blue connectors are rated at 16x and after some research I realized that, not only can you, but most people in the know use this configuration for higher benchies. The biggest problem is finding crossfire bridge connectors that are long enought to go between the cards, but the Sapphire 5770 came with the long ones so I had two for the connection. The benchmarks from the two 5770s Actually beat my old 4870x2 space heater and uses a forth of the juice. @ 19469 3d Mark 06

About Software. I already had the ATI Graphics software (CCC) Installed with my first card that I put in a month ago.


1. I unplugged the computer.

2. I unplugged my Internet Cable.

3. Then installed the second 5770 into the PCIe no# 3 slot.

4. Hooked up the PCIe Six Pin Power connector to the socket in the back of the card.

5. It took a little while for the system to POST at first. sweat sweat.

6. Then it went to the log on screen and burped 3 times on the Video. more sweating.

7. And then When I logged in the CCC asked me if I wanted Crossfire and the Check mark was already checked for yes. I Pressed okay and it burped again.

8. Then I plug in my Internet cable back in the computer.


NOTE: No Restart needed

Lol guess who I found Look at the reviews. E, I want pics of this thing you got installed. 180mm seems huge!

These are pictures of the Stacker and it is a little wider than the Scout.




7 and 1/8th inches

I really dont think it will go in the scout. the 140x140 for the top is your best bet.
