i might not get a new mobo/cpu/wc setup soon, depends on haswell news. Current is in my sig. but my point is, I've been doing my research and wanted to share what I found...
MOTHERBOARD COMPATIBILITY For Storm Scout 2:

So we all know the box says for the CMSCII, "fits micro-ATX and regular ATX motherboards". (*note: I do not own these rigs)

example #1: 12.0" x 9.6"
here is a regular sized ASRock x78 Extreme6 ATX motherboard in the CMSCII.


example #2: 12" x 10.1"
HOWEVER. I found this on a chinese pc forum (no, I dont speak/read it. Sort of just came up on google). It is an Asus Maximus V Formula EXTENDED-ATX Motherboard in the CMSCII.


example #3: 12" x 10.39"
Another example of an Extended ATX in the CMSCII with a Gigabyte G1 Sniper 3.


Conclusion: as you can see, it IS possible. But you run into some cable management issues like the 24-pin will most likely not be routed through the rubber grommet holes anymore. and like the normal ATX, you probably will not be putting a thick gpu in the last slot. Did not research if 3-way SLI/Crossfire was do-able, but I assume it would not be ideal due to expansion bay slot room. Unless the PCI slots are in the correct order for you to utilize the 6 out of 7 slots you would need. You will also notice that routing your sata cables through the rubber grommets will probably not happen with going EATX either. But there is a solution to all these issues without modding!

If you look below, the Asus Sabertooth Z77 is a regular ATX mobo, but in its cable management, You can see that they just route the cables around the edge of the motherboard tray itself. Problem solved smile.gif


hope this helps anyone contemplating this idea smile.gif I know I am!

Dear lord... lol weirdsmiley.gif

To each their own... I, personally, can't stand pink. However, I look forward to making faces at it when it's done. thumb.gif

So I managed to mount an h100 in the front bottom, I Haven't seen anyone else do it with leaving the drive cages in yet.
I had to cut from the top and the bottom from behind the front panel, as well as 2 strips for the waterlines to fit, and it still BARLEY FIT. its extremely snug.

any ways here are some pictures so you can see what I'm talking about

Can't wait to see it. Lauren from Tasty PC had a cool looking pink 600T. You should do a build log.

SWEET ANOTHER FRONT MOUNT INTERCOOLER. YOUR NUMBER TWO!
pics are in my sig rig and heres a link to my build log, i butchered it with a dremel though. your idea DESTROYS mine only because i put all my drives up top and removed the entire bottom cage.

build log: https://www.overclock.net/t/1373821/build-log-s-c-o-u-t-2-g-t-r/0_50

i originally had dual rads, an H60 for gpu and H100 for cpu. the metal lip under the top bay i flattened with vise grips so the h100's lines were tucked underneath more

ALSO try to reverse the fan direction in your case. i found out the hard way that my NB and SB were running at 52C because i was blowing the hot air INTO THE CASE. so i turned the top,side, and rear fans to blow in, and the front mount to blow OUT so only fresh cool air is going through the rest of the system instead of the hot air coming in through the rad, passed all the components and out the top. highly recommeneded.


*EDIT*
rofl your gonna make it pink, this is gonna look awesome. its a very classy SOLID case that will last a super long time. do a good job on it and show us!

Heh. Weird seeing this at $80. It had a good run tho.

This was the price Propus X4 not long ago, now they're like $60.
