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.
Yep, there's also this baby: http://www.mountainmods.com/mountain...unt-p-405.html
It also comes in Clear, be warned though with shipping it's $20- because it's acrylic it has to be packed well.
I don't know that this is a very good pic, it's an Enermax Appollish fan in that mount with packing foam to fill the top gap.

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.

The Scythe Kama Bay does what it is expected to do.

Tip: The Kama Bay comes with it's own 120mm fan (very thin fan). You'll need to pick up some longer screws to mount your own 120mm fan. I use the same size/length as I used to mount screws to my Corsair H50 Radiator. If you do buy the Kama Bay, I'll be happy to provide you the screw # and size.

As for changing the window, I haven't done it yet, but I don't think any cuts/drills into the case are needed. Just need to remove those pins that are used now, and have the window include those same holes. For myself, I'll probably end up removing the window first. Then take the window to a custom acrylic cutter, and have them make it up for me.

As far as custom built WC systems, there are several Scout owners, yes. I, for one, am not one of them. A number of us use the Corsair H50 Hydro Series water cooler, which does not require a reservoir.

If you check with the WC section of the forums, I think you could get an overkill of information. Some of those guys are nuts!

if you are not using a reservoir what are you using instead? do you plan to use a one?

Regarding the Corsair H50 water cooler, it comes with everything you need in the box. The parts are pre-configured, so all you have to do is use the correct mounting for your CPU socket type (i.e. AMD or Intel).

As far as mounting the radiator to the Window Panel... The thought has crossed my mind but I wouldn't do it, personally. Not to discourage anybody who is or has done this though. I'm no professional, but mounting a component that is meant to absorb all the CPU's heat onto acrylic doesn't seem like the ideal situation. On top of that, each time you remove your window-side-panel, you would have to deal with the tubes.

Is it just me or is there quite a proliferance of cry babies pointing out every little posting infraction to the moderators in a lot of the other threads? Not wanting to start a flame war here, but I guess that's where the saying "Some people's kids!" came from.

Agreed.

I started my membership because of the CMSSC, so I've become accustomed to the personalities here. The first time I ventured out beyond this thread, I noticed some responses I've read were a bit too unproductive.

Thus, EVERY question I have (unrelated to the Scout case) I ask it here first. As General Enigma said, (paraphrased) "This isn't just a thread about the CM Scout Case, but it is about what the club's members are doing." Well put brother (hope I didn't take that too far out of context).

Hey DefecT, you have to get it to install with the openGL drivers and play in 64 bit. It basically installs it's own Havok (spelled wrong yesterday) engine with it's own Physics, things still splash, wave & blow to bits.

With $20.00 for shipping, this ends up being the same price as the Scythe Kama Bay. That makes me feel a little better, lol, because I thought I paid so much for such a small little tool.

That isn't your rig though, is it Bri?

You can get W/C help from me and Photonmoo, can't think right now who else has done it in the Scout. The best res is the Swiftech micro 2, if you want to take 2 bays you can use this one: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xsacdu5refor.html
The only advantage to that is the pump is in the bay with the res. One of these is good too: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/bi5bayresbla.html
It only takes up one slot in the bay, you mount your pump elsewhere.
This is the one I want to get for my Haf 932 case: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/ekekspreac.html
Just because it lets you see the water flow, even if you take out the spin thingie.

Ooops, sorry it was $20- with shipping. No it's not my rig, it's the one I built for Mindy, aka, Mindy's Scout. I can take a pic of the finished product with the blue 140mm in the bottom if anyone is interested.

Yes, my new motherboard has USB 3.0 (2 ports) on the I/O panel.

The internal USB ports are still 2.0 (for the Front Panel) and there are 4 USB 2.0 ports on the back I/O panel as well. I wish it came with more USB 3.0 ports, though.

Excited to actually try the USB 3.0 but I have yet to own any 3.0 devices.

I think, personally, since I use my external hard drive a lot, I will most likely be buying an external hard drive when a USB 3.0 version is available.

Originally when I purchased my CM Scout, I was merely planning to move all the parts from my old case to the Scout.

..Which I did.. ..but..

After swapping all the components into the CM Scout, I upgraded the following hardware components:
  • CPU
  • CPU Cooler
  • RAM
  • Motherboard
  • PSU

Lol. So now, in spare (left over) parts, I have enough to build a computer in my previous case. I'm planning to put that together some time this upcoming week, and hook it up to the LCD TV for entertainment purposes.

Just thought I'd share that.

This sickness is relentless! (Right Rockr?)

Well, I'm off to see Muse in concert tonight. I hope everybody has a great Saturday night. Be safe!

So, 2 5770's beat out one 5870 in Max but the 5870 wins in the Min, interesting.
There's also a 64bit version that I didn't run.

@ Enigma, did you have the 32 bit or 64 bit version?

I can also run this on a 5850 & I can crossfire the 5870 and 5850 if anyone wants me to. Also mine was with Tesselation.

Here's Hard Ocp's report on thier tests: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2009/..._tessellation/
I am running 7 pro 64 bit.

I built one of those. You will love it. I have a 52 inch Plasma Panasonic TV with a 4550 and I bought a blu Ray DVD CD and a multi card socket with a Creative Titanium sound card with the inputs for recording music. I run the Hdmi wire of the video card to a Yamaha RX-V663 7.1 sound system with a pair of Bose 301x2.....Klipsch Kg-2s Center and a pair of Advent small surround speakers with From the Yamaha the TV is plugged in. I have a Wireless Keyboard and Mouse. That's what I'm on right now. I love the system. I listen to my Music library and talk to you guys on a huge TV.
