All parts are included in the white box that came with the case. Use smallest screws to reattach the plate to the case, and regular fan screws to attach the fan to the plate.

My power supply comes on the 15th. Should I go ahead and mount the mobo, or should I wait for the PSU? Ultimately, what option is better for cable mangement?
I would wait until you get the PSU so that you can route the 8-pin EPS cable behind the motherboard tray and through the CPU cut out, assuming it will reach.

That's a great way to do it and it'll stay nice and secure. I chose not to use the drive bay shield, because it seems like it would slightly restrict airflow. :/

yeah, I really want to get rid of the drivebay sheilds. Perhaps I'll try packaging foam or macgyvering something up.

Hey Bradey. Ok, I've been checking on this today because I recently read about someones Evga board getting toasted. You know I don't know much about AMD but on an intel board that space is occupied by thick marks that go from the ram across to the Cpu. These are actually traces in the PCB where they lay in the conducting material to power the Ram and just below it are a few thin lines that are actually the QPI link between Ram and CPU.

I can't even find a picture of the back of your mobo online. That's odd but I also didn't have a whole lot of time today. The only thing I did find was a guy who overclocked his Ram too high and it scorched the back of the board in the upper part between the ram and cpu. He was told in the forum he was posting on to rub off the scorch marks before he RMA'ed it. How long did you have this board? Was there any sign of damage any place else?
I ask because others who have seen this on intel boards found that it's a weakness between the 12v links on the 24 pin connector and the cpu, it didn't even occur to most of them to look at thier PSU pins but when they read the post most of them realized it was actually the 24 pin connector that caused the problem. I'm sure you're going to get a new one back no problem but I'm just curious, you know to educate myself and watch out if I see it any where else.
So, just be sure to check all the connectors on your PSU and make sure the short didn't travel to any other place.

I stand corrected. The only way with your board is a case mod. Cheaper than a new board.

Hey Rayshi!!
Welcome to the club and also to the others who just signed up in the last day or two.
Ok, I have an answer and a pic for you. You take the connectors through the gap between the drive cage and the backplane where the mobo mounts, then around the back of the drive cage, into it, then come out any set of holes in the drive cage that you wish to use then plug into you video card.

This is how it looked while setting up Mindy's Scout: Attachment 150286
I had to cut and re-size the pic to upload it so I hope it's large enough to see in case my through the rabbit hole explanation wasn't so clear. The XFX 5850 black's connectors aren't exactly in the back, there's one in each opening of the nose, along with that little fan connector that can be seen in your card pics on New Egg.

Wow, without the complete shroud over it, I would bet this card would easily go in the Scout without any modding. Please let us know how it works out for you & if all possible take pictures when you put it in. There's only a few instances of putting in the 5870 without modding.

I also have one question does the new revision of the VAPOR-X 5870 fit on this case?
Rayshi... The only thing you need is some zip ties for those loose wires in the case. other than that. it looks really good. I really like the two Vertical Red Cathodes in the front. It gives it a mean look.
