I haven't posted a great deal but I'm reading this thread every day and greatly enjoying it, many thanks to all who put the effort and time in. I've also picked up a lot of nice tips from here and I really appreciate it.

I've been building PC's since ~96 when I got my first Pentium 75. It's amazing that seemed so fast at the time, running Doom 2 super smooth was all I could ever want. How times have changed! Anyway this Scout has given me a new lease of enthusiasm for building since the case is just so amazingly nice to work with and look at. I had to rearrange my desk so I could have it right there side window on display! I don't know if that's sad or just obsessive! Still I expect I'm in good company

Here are a few photos of my rig, and can I join please?


Looks great man! Good cable management.

Welcome to the Cooler Master Storm Scout Club (CMSSC for short)!

Tag up, solider!

Awesome, thanks for the reply. I have some more of that black foam which I might use to further box in some of the cabling but I'm happy enough for now. I also have a couple of 120mm fans lying around so may try some either on the side or some kind of mount in the 5.25" drive bays for futher cooling. The thing that bothers me about side fans is that when I want to take the side panel off I suppose one has to unplug them which seems like a bit of a hassle.

Oh and I swapped the 140mm top fan around with the 140mm front led fan, so the copper of the cooler is bathed in red when it's dark, also all the fans are mounted with those rubber sound deadening pins which made a nice difference to the noise.

Hopefully this sig will work now...

Can you fit fans onto the window panel with that Zalman CPU cooler? The fins look huge.

Agreed. Attaching fans onto the Window's panel isn't for me either. Plug & unplug each time I open the panel up (which is VERY often, for me). Personally, I've decided not to increase the number of fans but invest in higher quality fans instead.

I have a 120mm fan taking up 3 of my 5 optical bay drives. Using the Scythe Kama Bay, but you can also use the floppy bay that came with the Scout too.

I think my next journey will be GPU & replacing the stock windows with a custom window without fins for fans.

PC DIED?

I won't ask how it happened, because I wouldn't make you relive that (although you are "living" it right now).

I wish you the best in getting everything taken care of!

You're right that a side fan in the upper slot would be a problem with the Zalman cooler in place, I haven't tried it but it doesn't look like there is quite enough room. I could fit a fan in the lower mounting point though. I'm very tempted to replace the window myself as well, it would clean up the look at prevent all the dust getting in that way. Those fins on the Zalman really catch the dust in no time! Since the front is all dust filtered it must be getting in from those side fins.

I think I'll try a fan in the optical bays as well at some point, I have a super silent akasa apache 120mm lying around which I can use. I also have some thicker black foam which I could probably mount it with, wedge it in there good and not have to drill or cut anything. How did you mount your 120mm in the drive bays?

My next upgrade is probably an SSD, I'm so tempted every day to just buy one but they are not cheap... I also find myself checking the prices of the nvidia 400 series rather a bit too often...

You can also you use the floppy drive add on tool that came with the Scout case though. I haven't done it, but I think with the one that came with the Scout, you can use the tool-less locks. Whereas, with the Kama Bay, I had to use zip ties.

Try it first with the one that came with the Scout. If you're not happy, then there are options, such as the Kama Bay. I actually bought the Kama Bay before I knew the one that came with the Scout case would work.

Suddenly I need one of those Sythe bays! More to buy. But seriously that's very nice, thanks for the tips.
I shall try the floppy drive add on and see how it works out. I like the zip tie idea as well, I don't fancy cutting or drilling my scout quite yet although I'm sure I'll get there eventually, especially if I get round to the window mod.
