@ Striker. Yeah, like those guys on the W/C boards, 10 posts and less than a month on the Overclock.net and they're over there spouting what's best for you. A couple of days ago they were bickering over a retired Navy guys question, I had to jump in and say knock it off! They haven't posted much since, maybe they think I'll go into hiding.

@ Corsair. I can't seem to find Mindy's PSU box right now but I'll pull that sucker and show you it says 80+ Silver on it, if it ain't I'll ship it back and you better give me an HX 750 that is 80+ Silver. Can you say: Class Action suit?? There you go, I knew you could.

Oh for you younger guys or new to the forum scene. As Enigma and I know, these companies do troll the forums, they can have a sales rep post to a thread, just not the head of a department or CEO. Here on OCN, they have to disclose that they're with the company when they post. There's a thread on the W/C about Performancepcs having bad customer service as of late. Someone asked who else to go to, there were a lot of listings then I posted Koolertek and within a few minutes one of thier people popped in and said thanks.

@ Striker. You're not the only one, Mindy and I watch a lot of old TV shows, a lot of Cliche' movies and lots of cartoons and anime. We just like to have fun & make fun.
We can re-build him, make him stronger, better, outdated compared to the other technology around him. Heh heh heh...

@ Clee. Oh, and may you never have to be in the house when she makes Borscht!! Man it stinks, I gotta go to the pharmacy or something. Min's outside in the snow flurries, sitting in her chair, reading her Kindle. Hey you still awake under there??

Mis-quoted as Clee's girlfriend but of course she's not because he's married. Fixed it but in your quote it's still wrong. Anyway...

I was about to say.... Next time ask me for the crystals when Mindy reminded me we don't have any Sworski left. Did you know they're the oldest crystal maker on the planet and they were the first to use the "fire polish" method. They look great, you can never get the full color of them on camera, something like how you can't capture someones soul on camera. It just doesn't come across right. I love it when they dangle, I never liked making "post" earrings but I did it because women buy them. Mindy believes if they don't wear showey earrings they don't have much self esteem. Yep, they're great for both her eyes and complextion.

As for Sworski seconds, don't believe it, they don't sell seconds, they have chipped and ones that don't match but anything that's a "second" is thrown back into the slag pot. Why sell a "second" when you can re-melt it and make a vase out of it?? You got prime cut at a discount is all.

We still have huge amounts of seed beads, bugle beads, semi-precious stones, lots of cut glass and cast glass. I don't know about the findings though, haven't seem them in some time.

yes actually i did know most of that
when we went to get her prom dress we went into the store in our local mall and spent like 4 hours talking with the woman that worked their and she gave us the whole history (with dates even!) wile we were spending about 300 bucks (her dads money ) on a a really pretty necklace (blue white and clear crystal with silver connecting chains) and LONG matching earnings
and the crystal is fine its the silver that was messed up on them.

and your right about never getting the color right in photos

Thank you, I really appreciate the offer for the free tool, bro! That's really nice of you, but I'll probably shop around for one eventually. It may become my Summer 2010 project. (+Rep for your brotherliness)

80+ Bronze Corsair HX? That doesn't seem accurate. It was my understanding that all HX models were 80+ Silver... I have the 750HX & a friend of mine just ordered the 850HX.

I am pretty sure the "80+ Bronze" text/image on Newegg is a mistake. If you haven't done it already, I'm going to send an email to Corsair & Newegg about that. /anal





lol
The HX650W is a bronze rated PSU and made by SeaSonic; whereas, the HX750/850W are silver rated and made by CWT. Either way, they're all great PSUs so I wouldn't worry so much about that.

Here's an interesting read on the subject by our very own Phaedrus2129.

Ok, as it has been long since promised...

I've finally got some, pics of my Storm Scout build!

Sorry some of the pics are little fuzzy...


First up, a full view of the interior with my Sapphire 5850 installed!
As you can clearly see, the PCI-E plugs from my PSU have PLENTY of room!
Also this is before I cleaned up some of the cabling...
Yes that is a Corsair H50 Hydro Series coolant system on the CPU!
Yes that is a Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Series PCI-E Card on the top slot.




Close up of the back of the 5850...
Hard to tell but there is nearly an Inch of space there!




Cabling Job in the works!
Note the 8-Pin (EPS12V) Extension Cable!
This is a life saver and must have, for this Case!
Thanks to Enigma mentioning its importance, with a BIG PICTURE!





Corsair H50 Hydro
Important to note, the tubing is long, for a small case like the Scout, so if you want to use two Fans on the side panel, watch that the tubing does not come in contact with the top fan!




Zip-Ties!!
These little black wonders, helped to solve my problem of the H50 tubes hitting my Side Fan!



WRONG!
I custom made my own Shrouds for my H50, using a pair of old Thermaltake 120mm Fans that I don't use anymore.
Note, I used both shrouds to make a single 50mm shroud between the fan, and the radiator.
This won't work, if you want to use TWO fans on your Scouts side Panel.
The Side Panel will NOT close, because the fan on the end of the shroud will block the top fan, on the side panel!



To fix the shroud problem with the side panel fans on the Storm Scout.. you will have to use a single 25mm shroud on the interior.

I separated my two, and left one on the inside, and the second one is mounted on the rear of the case with the rear fan.

So I have two, rear fans on my Scout, in a Push/Pull configuration, sandwiching a pair of shrouds which are sandwiching the case, and Radiator.

Basically, like this -> fan>shroud>case>rad>shroud>fan>>air flow direction>>

The fans are running as Intakes, sucking air from the rear and venting out the front of my case. As a result, I have my 955BE clocked at 3.820ghz with idle temps 27c!

Extreme load temps, 5 hours of Prime95 never topped 45c!


Now you're curious about how that 5850 preforms in this Case? Does it have enough ventilation?

How's a Core Speed of 950mhz sound to you? With Temps holding at 64c with fan at 75%!

Note the Temps on my card; and note the Run Time, on the Kombuster/FurMark running in the background...


Yes, you can crank your precious 5850 in this little work horse of a Case!

I've had mine as high as 1000mhz!


Lastly, but not least...

DO BE CAREFUL, when popping out the metallic pieces blocking the 5.25" bays!

Look closely at how those pieces should be removed and do NOT twist them...

Otherwise, you will end up a sad Scout!

White Circle!
You see that little white circle I drew?
Look closely...


Look Closer!



The problem is, by twisting the metallic pieces out of the 5.25" slots, you risk breaking off a set of tiny tabs, on either side of the interior, of the Front Panel Cover!

With those little plastic tabs broken off, your Front Slot Grill Covers will no longer stay mounted! They will just, fall off!

So be careful, when you remove those metallic pieces, and DO NOT throw those away after you remove them. They have two tabs on them as well, which can be used to screw them back on!

I'll have some more pics later on; after I get my Front Panel replaced! Thanks to Enigma, Clee; on page 905 of this Thread, for getting Cooler Masters attention that us Scout Owners need access to these valuable spare parts!!

Anyway, as I said, I'll have some more pics later on. I still have some ideas for an interesting mod on the front of my Scout but if I can't do it, then I'll probably just add a fan in the 5.25" slots to help exhaust the air from my H50!

Here's some more Pics of my little Scout that could!


Side Panel with dual Cooler Master R4-L2R-20CR-GP's mounted!




Closer view of an R4 with the rear of my 5850 clearly visible!
Note the power connectors on the 5850, note the clearance the card has!
You can also see, how the previously mentioned Zip Tie, is securing the H50 tubing, by pulling it away from that top side fan!




Back mounted R4 with Shroud.




Now this last pic, is VERY Important!

If you plan to mount a 120mm fan on the outside rear of your case, you're going to have problems putting the side panel back on!

Luckily, I have a Dremel in my tool box, so with a little work on my back porch, I trimmed about 2 - 3mm off the edge of the shroud, so the side panel would properly fit! Yeah, it looks ugly, but... this is on the back rear of the case, under my desk... whose going to crawl around under there, except me, to look at cosmetic features?





My next step will be, replacing my busted front panel, as mention in my previous round of Pics; as well as adding some sort of cover over my HDD Bay.

Once the Front Panel is replaced, I'll be looking at maybe doing something with my empty 5.25" slots. Maybe mount another fan, maybe something else... depends on time, and how much I can afford! lol

Oh and for the record, some of you will have noted that its sitting on my carpeted floor. No worries about my PSU, I have it mounted so the fan is facing upwards inside the case. It's basically helping to keep the case ventilated. I may someday, also add some sort of False Bottom that some have pictured on the first few pages of this Thread, but... for now, I've spent too much on this baby already! lol

Grrrrrrrrrr. I'll have to go back and see who told it would be just as good as a 750. Meanwhile I wrote to Corsair. Well, I complained to Corsair. We'll see.

@ Rom3000. Yeah, they're good and they have a 7 year warranty but if it really is 80+ Bronze they have some problems.

Why do some people have a + by thier name when they show up on the "Currently Active Users Viewing this thread:"? I saw Enigma had it, but you know, he started it, right now Kev_b has it. Hi Kev!! clee413 too. Anybody? Wow Kev's been here a long time, his member number is 86432!
