The Storm Scout has PSU screw holes on the back to mount PSUs either with the fan up or down.

The case was designed for the PSU to be mounted fan-down, because there is a circle cut out on the bottom of the case with a grill or filter of some sort,for the PSU to blow down and out of the case. This design prevents the hot PSU air from exhausting in to your case.

I ended up purchasing a key switch, 2x toggle switches and missile switch covers.

I mounted 4 switches on the front.

1) CMOS Reset Switch
2) Rocker Switch for 2 Green Cathodes
3) Key Switch attached to Front Power Button
4) Nothing ATM

I'll take some pics shortly, it sticks out a bit, which is a bit annoying to me...I'll see what I can do with that :S

I ordered Red Tint Acrylic, to replace the side window

I also purchased some photo stickers, and printed off a few decals and stuck them on the PSU, On the Acoustic sheet in front of the HDD's and I'm probably going to stick another one on the window...and I might just make a few 25x25mm case badges as well (pics of the wifey etc)

I might just make a 'trap door' cover over my psu, But I'm thinking I will probably need a 24pin psu extender cable thingie and run the cables around the back instead of across my Mobo (effing M2N-SLI, with it's annoying Power Connector placement), but if I do that, I'll have to sleeve the psu, *sigh* that's going to worthwhile but extremely time consuming and patience sapping.

I also found this on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/USB-HD44780-L...d=p3286.c0.m14

If i got that, I'd probably remove the lcd screen and stick it in the 5.25" to 3.5" panel that came with the Scout. Only down side to it is, I'll lose 2x front usb slots and the lcd screen colour is white with blue characters, will be a bit odd compared to everything else being red and black on my Scout.

Grrrr, decisions decisions. I need to stop thinking about things, it's plaguing my mind...boredom doesn't help either.

Correct me if I'm wrong... but doesn't the fan in the PSU intact cool air and exhaust through the back grill? That's why there's a dust filter on the bottom of the case.. so the PSU doesn't suck in dust.

Thanks Enigma. For the heck of it.. I went into ATI Overdrive and cranked the GPU fan all the way up... holy crap.. it sounded like a mini jet was taking off in my computer.. lol. Really looking forward to doing the same with the Accelero and comparing the difference.

BTW.. sign me up!
