wow we go from 2 or 3 weeks of limited activity here and then i come look and i have 4 pages to slog thorough in2 days lol

good looking scout. the fans inside are neat but the controller is just too blue for my liking why must they insist on using super bright LEDs in those things?..

I'm about to buy this case (Marked down $20 (now $80 FS)on Newegg and now free shipping, hell yeah!) I have a couple extra GT15s it would seem, are the 120mm fan placements on the Window of the case restrictive or will most of the air flow be good? And I'd want window fans to be intake right?

edit: Also, are your guys PSUs temps okay? I see the most of your guys PSU fan's are exhausting to nothing on the bottom. I was considering drilling some holes but it wouldn't help anything if the case isn't elevated off my desk or floor.

I am thinking I need to get myself a cheap airbrush as I want to spray my fans some day soon
I would love to have one from The Local Art Market. We have a place called Micheal's They have some really mini Air pumps and brushes for artists and I like those.. I would go where the artist go.. There you will find the quality that you are seeking and the help that you need. Tell them what you are planning on Painting.. Mostly Metallic finishes and They will show you the right paint to use..

No, the fans that point down (the larger fans on the body of the PSU), aren't exhaust, that's intake, PSU's have always exhausted out the back. There was someone recently that got better temps with it pointed down than when he had it up, his PSU has lights on top so it's meant to go up.
I believe Enigma has the same PSU.

Yes, the window fans are a little restrictive, actually most case fans have something blocking smooth flow. It's the most common mod on the Scout, take out the grills or make a custom window & yes, they should be on intake.

Edit: See Enigma and I were answering at the same time. Also, see, his PSU is different.

@ Enigma. Sweet airbrushes, reminds me of my artist friends when I was a kid. E, don't you have to be carefull with those when you paint plastic because of what you use for thinner?

yes.. you want the side window fans to blow cool air on the video cards.

As far as drilling intake holes in the bottom don't.. Most of us experimenting with this case have found the opposite is true. To actually confine airflow from just the fans and nothing else.. PSU Temps are no problem especially since the Exhaust is sucking in from the back and down through the floor. if you had it on carpet I would tell you to turn your psu blowing up through the case but since you are going to put the case on a wooden surface then send the exhaust down..

And yes. Bri.. Since I have a red lighted fan I have my PSU exhaust pointing up but I use a 550 Be that can be cooling with a chewing gum wrapper and a 3870 toxic that is Vapor X and it stays super cool. I didn't even change my window. I just lowered the voltage of my fans to 7 Volts DC and they are silent and still suck air.

I had another idea. How effectively do you think I could spray my fan surrounds with black rubberising ?
Going to call these guys tomorrow and ask them -> http://ads.easyinfo.co.za/htm/custom...ed/gallery.htm
Ok, gotta ask. Why?
I'm guessing you do know that Rhino liner is one of the hardest coatings on the market and would probably last longer than any fan you spray it on. I don't know about there but here it's really really expensive. What do you want to achieve by rubberizing?

The Acyrlic feet with LEDs in them, yeah, lots of vendors here sell them, they're great to light up your desk. Let me know if you want some pics to get an idea of what to do, there are a lot of variations, they don't have to be round.

@ Enigma. What?? No sound from the singing cat? Surely this group has put out a You Tube video by now.

Oh Yeah, the slow window fans. I did put low power ones in Mindy's Scout window. Thermaltake somethings, can't get them from the Egg, I think they're only 8watts, cost $9- each from SVC.com, I wouldn't put a 1450rpm GT in there, the air over those vents would probably vibrate.

Edit #3. Oh yeah E, I always forget about your little slot fan plug thing. You really get creative with those things!

@ Striker. I don't know why they use Blue, except that everything came out blue for about 5 years. It was because just before then, there were no blue LEDs or blue Lasers (the whole word should be capitalized), just red & green. Then the Guy in Japan, Dr. Shuji Nakamura, invented the Blu Ray LASER and when you do simulations you use LEDs, so you don't get blinded, then everyone put Blue LEDs in everything. So, I guess I do know why they use Blue. As to why that one is so bright, it's made by Sunbeam, someone please verify, so they think they have to be bright, also, isn't that the controller that handles 30watts per channel? Another reason is, it's easier to use a 12V LED and they're blinding compared to the 5V ones.

LOL.. No.. I found it on picasa.. I thought it was funny.. Anyway they do make a spray on rhino liner that you can buy at Advance Auto. I love spraying the inside of cases with it. It beats platicote 10 to 1..

Holy Chrome!! So you can beat up the inside of your case with you knuckles and tools and it never gets a scratch huh? How much does a can cost???

Yeah, the cat is funny. Actually I'm shocked it would stay there, I just can't imagine what it sounds like. I used to have 4 feline friends in this tiny trailer you know.

Edit #1. Hey OCN crashed again. I wonder if it has something to do with thier commercialization switch. That's what made me leave HardOCP, but I guess they have to make money somehow.

BriSleeps Nvidia investigations of the day. It's well known the new cards run really hot, so some people are trying things out to fix it, or at least improve on it. During my search I also found out the cost of these cards has a lot to do with a 50% failure rate on the chips produced, that's pretty high. Here's that info: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/fer...cuda,9950.html

Here's a pic of the 480 chip, of course this is a heat spreader, but there's 3 billion transistors under this hood: Attachment 156717

One of the reasons why these cards have heat problems is the TIM quality is pretty low, this is a shot of one guys chip with stock TIM: Attachment 156718

I can't upload every pic to my account so, I'm posting the little ones, you can read the whole thread here: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=310095
