Crappy pic, but you can see some of the damage. What you can't see is how bad that area is bent out, and how much paint is missing. You can kind of see how badly I had to damage that corner of the fan as a way to get it out.



Fan still isn't out, no matter what I do I just keep causing more damage to the case. I'm at the point of throwing it out, there's no way I'll be able to hide that crap now.

Edit : Fan is out, since it was damaged I cut the wiring off of it to use for another mod. Scraped a lot of paint off my case, and bent it pretty bad in that one spot, but I'll try to bbend it back as best I can and then re-paint with some black enamel or maybe even some black nail polish to hide the damage.

Damn boy.. LOL.. that runs on 12 volts dc.. Not 120 VAC.. Ouch man.. is everything alright.. I still have my original 140 fan if you want it. it works fine. and I dont think it has any explosives on it.

Hey look johnny.. You need to drill the screws out with a hand drill and a bit that is a little smaller than the head of the screw.. and then beat that bend back to sumission and straight with a rubber hammer or a real hammer.. Then take some Satin Ford spray paint and paint over your anger..

No new case.. just Drill, Bang, and Spray it.. That doesn't sound right does it.??? Noo.. Enigma that sound sexual in nature.. yes.. youre right, It sure does.. Sorry.. Sa dite.

I'm sure the fan would work fine, but I cut the wiring off of it to use for my molex-terminal-block mod. The part I'm worried about is where I bent the case and tore up the paint.

The reason for removing the fans is because I strictly run R4 series fans.

Yeah, I'm gonna do that but at a later time most likely. For now I'm just worried about getting the Scout's wiring done the way I like it, do my case mods, do the molex block mod, and have it all ready for the parts I'm receiving tomorrow.

The bend isn't causing any fitment issues, it's purely visual damage. Front panel and side panel fit fine. When the case is together you don't notice anything. I'll probably just touch up the paint and forget about it.

Thats a boy.. then go outside and kick the fence a couple of times.. I understand your frustration.. but drilling those screws will give you such a warm and fuzzy feeling inside.. Looks like you used the old hammer and flat head screw driver trick.. I have used the Hammer and screwdriver to run conduit through a cement wall.. that's a good way to get the job done fast.

Hey guys. Built a custom shelf/monitor stand today from Ikea parts. Here is that Dell again:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/devilsx...42219/sizes/l/

Been looking at the pics lately, we've got some awesome new Scouts (both members and machines). I'm glad we're picking up now, would love to see more innovation coming, and I really hope CM is actually reading this, especially the team who did the Storm series (Phoenix something). Would love to see something come from all our efforts. Catch you all later when I have more interesting stuff to post.

Fan still isn't out, no matter what I do I just keep causing more damage to the case. I'm at the point of throwing it out, there's no way I'll be able to hide that crap now.

Edit : Fan is out, since it was damaged I cut the wiring off of it to use for another mod. Scraped a lot of paint off my case, and bent it pretty bad in that one spot, but I'll try to bbend it back as best I can and then re-paint with some black enamel or maybe even some black nail polish to hide the damage.



Damn dude, ***, that fan slides out with the greatest of ease. Maybe just a little tight, but you have to keep it horizontal and in the same position as when it was mounted. Then move it out to the solid panel side of the case. I have at least 5mm space when I slide it out, give or take a few for factory imperfections your case can't be that different. Also they had to get it in there somehow I am sure.

Thats very nice looking Maybe you could cut another piece of board and use it to create a back panel/open box. Then you could hide all your wires in it and maybe mount a power supply and a fan or two


On another note I saw these today and really want a xbox compatible headset, just struggling to find something in this country.

Thanks for the welcome and the comments.

I cut out the side panel myself with a jig saw and and a drill.
The dust filter is used in air conditioners,i bought the filter attachement in one of our stores.
You screw the firt part on.

Then your second part with the dust filter just snaps on to it.

Simple as that.

I was thinking about cuting the hole for the front vent,does that help with the airflow? I saw a guide for this here.

Opened for any other suggestions.

Again, thanks for the welcome.

Just an update guys, I put in a RMA/Parts request or the port. I requested a new control panel or top frame. I'll let you guys know how it ends.
