Cool cool! I was aiming for the push pull effect, blue LED fan on inside with the radiator then a normal black fan I've got lying around on the outside of the case with a grill over it. Hopefully can make it look half decent!

Those things are decent for their price but Megahalems is better for price/performance.

Agh righty, thanks. I was wanting to avoid a big chunk of metal hanging of my processor and liking the idea of moving the heat away and blasting it straight outa the back of the case. But I'll keep those in mind

I'm considering buying either the Storm Scout or the X-Clio Godspeed One Advanced can anyone recommend one or the other or just provide info on one or the other? I like both cases but wondered what other peoples' opinions would be.

Posting in this thread will get you nothing but votes on the Storm Scout.

As a new owner of the Storm Scout, I definitely recommend it. If you have the time, I would go through the pages of this thread to read everyone's reviews and view their pictures. It's a awesome case from an awesome company.

Thought so, but I figured any advice would be useful, tbh I'm leaning towards the Storm Scout atm

Agreed

The Storm Scout is a fantastic case, the BEST for under $100 IMHO...I would have even paid more, honestly. Quick-lock/screw-less mounting for the CD drive bays, hard drive bays and PCI slots. The quick-locks for the PCI slots are a bit flimsy and break easily, but Cooler Master kept us in mind and designed that PCI quick-lock system so you could still use screws to mount your cards...screws included with the case!

For quick wire-tucking or a full blown wire tuck with custom sleeving and such, this case is very user friendly. Many places to route and hide wiring. The list of mods people have done to this case is a nice one, with many of the walk-throughs found right here on the forum, one of which I'll link below.

As for the cooling, the case by default holds 5 fans. That's two 140mm and three 120mm(it comes with two 140mm and one 120mm if I remember correctly)...the 140mm fan spots have a second set of holes to mount 120mm instead. With the 5.25" drive-bay fan mod, you can add a 6th fan. Right now I'm running 6 Cooler Master R4series Black w/red LED 120mm fans...possibly the best 120mm fans you can get due to their 90cfm @ 119dB ratings. Those 6 fans combined with 2 more on my CPU cooler, and I've got a constant windstorm in this case that annihilates high-temps...under load my CPU and GPU can't seem to fight all that wind, so the temps don't rise up near as much as they used to in my last case.

Here's the most popular mod thread for the Scout, the Ambush Build. Will give you an idea of some of the more common mods you can do to this case, and show you the inner-workings of the case thanks to his awesome pictures and documentation.

http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...out-build.html

For $89.99shipped to your doorstep from newegg(If you're in the US), and all the things this case has going for it...you'd be hard pressed to spend anywhere near that amount and find another case that comes anywhere close to outdoing the scout. Heck, you'd be hard-pressed to spend double or triple on a case and have it blow the Scout out of the water...this case is all-around fantastic. If you buy this case I HIGHLY recommend you order the 6 CM R4 series 90cfm/19dB fans to run in this thing, and just use the oem case fans as spares if you have a fan go out and need something to replace it until you can order a new one.

As for the downsides, I know of only two. The PCI quick-lock system isn't very effective and can break easily, but you can choose not to use it at all like I did and just use screws to hold your cards. The other issue, which isn't so much a problem but an annoyance...screw-mounted fans. I was spoiled by my retired Thermaltake Damier V5000a case that had the quick-mounting for fans. On the Storm Scout you need to use screws, and those fan screws can be a HUGE pain to install...my hand was sore for several days after the installation of 8 120mm fans.
