As soon as I moved into the Scout with all stock cooling the same system ran 3.8Ghz stable. I've got the CPUID Screenshots in my earlier posts. Now the remarkable thing was I was running it at 3.8Ghz and loading out 55c with 1.47 volts to the P4 3.0GHz Presscott to be stable. Even now I'm thinking of selling my reference cooled XFX 5770 and replacing it with a XFX non reference cooled 5850 just for the reduced fan noise. I am that confident in the ability of the Scouts stock cooling sytem. Maybe when I upgrade to X-fire I may have to deal with changing out the blowhole fan. In reality what am I going to get 2-3c under load, if that? The thing about the scout that really improved airflow the most didn't cost anymore than a package of reinforced dremel cutting wheels and a few hours of work. That's money well spent. Has anyone even done a longterm test of the stock cooling system before they start saying it's lacking? I'd like to see that.

I apologize if I sound a little cross tonight. I am. I'm tired of seeing and reading everyone going with flow. Saying and posting what people want to hear. You know. Stuff isn't always better because it's got a million fans on it or it costs more than my limbs. I just wish people could knock the top few rows off their walls, not the whole wall, just the top few layers and be a little more open with their real thoughts and knowledge base and not just pass on every ******* half-truth they read about on the net.

Sorry about the rant and peace out everyone. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day. G'nite

I have a pair of tin snips, think I can use those to cut those fan grills off? I can't afford any fancy tools at the moment.

After 2 years of shouting at Mindy & anyone else that I called, or who called me, I finally got her to switch to Verizon and we both got new phones. I got an LG enV3, this one: http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/s...edPhoneId=4786
She got an LG Chocolate Touch, this one: http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/s...edPhoneId=5071 but hers has a purple back.
Those aren't the prices we paid though, we got them through Costco, much better pricing and stuff that goes with them. I got sick of having to walk around with a prosthesis that doesn't fit right and try to find her just to find out that I passed her twice. Also our old phones had more dead spots than a graveyard and didn't work at all in most buildings. These baby's have GPS, texting, interenet, better cameras, the works & mine can be turned up so loud I can hear it in a noisy casino. It's such a relief, there will be so much less pain in the future.
Now I have to cancel our landline and with that money we'll be able to use our cells as our primary numbers. Phew, glad to get the ATT monkey off my back! Now if we could only find a better DSL provider.
Also, now I have to learn how to use it!
Hmm What's macro? o.o

I just chose the automatic function got the picture really close and held the button for it to focus for a few sec and shot'it. o.o.

I have a Kodak EasyShare M340

Macro is a mode for greater details in close photography

Also I just ordered this HDD-suspension tingy so I can fit some more HDDs in my case which currently is realy needed and the one I already have will be completely horrizontal instead of like semi leaning like 5 degrees off.

I definitely want to see pictures of how this works. Maybe I'm just too tired but I'm not really understanding what it says on the MM website about adding a fan to the HDD.

@ Rockr It's alright for anyone to rant or get upset or whatever you want to call it. I'm the last one to say don't get angry, I get angry everytime somone says the Sniper is the Scouts big brother.
As for overheating, maybe it's more our system components than the Scout itself but as for long term testing, those of us who have overheating problems, we didn't have time to test it, we had to correct it. My Scout was having heat problems, Mindy's Scout had problems, Kev_b had problems, I think Rom3000 had heat problems, I think they both have the same mobo and fixed it by replacing the TIM, I had to send mine back and get a Haf 932, Mindy and I have the same mobo and it's the Vreg (mosfet chips) that are the problem, but it's also from putting a rad on the back vent. I fixed Mindy's by putting the Noctua up there. I for one, can't cut out the top or front of the grills right now. I cut out the plastic but if I cut steel the landlord gets on my case. Hopefully we'll be moving soon so I'll have a garage to do all the mods I want. So yeah, there are heat problems but they are fixable and I think that's what was asked.

Basicly you mount it on the fan itself and mount the HDDs in the rack like this picture shows

I can imagine how it works o.o not sure if it would go with scouts tool-less design though

Well... my scout doesn't utilize any of the tool-less designs at the moment so wont ruin anything ^^ also that will probably look better than the 5.25" too 3½" adapter
