Youve got the modders mindset, its broken ENOUGH to screw with wink.gif I really think it does create some turbulence though, hope it goes well if you do decide to do it!cheers.gif

More updates! I have finished cutting away all the plastic on top and I am now in possession of the shroud, or at least what left from the chopjob. wink.gif.

Below: Here is the only pic I took while cutting away the rest of the top plastic. It worked out perfetly that the cut was exactly as wide as the fan grill, so there will be no slots on either side of the shroud. My dumb luck in action biggrin.gif

Below: Here is the shroud. I have taken off the angled plastic sides, so now it is pretty much a flat box, which will allow it to fit between the handle and also make it mount and look better on the top. I took off a bunch of the base metal to accomodate the screws for the handle and the other mounting devices of the plastic. They wont be noticeable anyway, so dont mind the metallic sharpie. They will be covered by the plastic on either side. Note:Two and a half rolls of masking tape gave their lives for the success of this project. rolleyes.gif

Below: Time for some many metal cutting, the really messy part. For this I used a jigsaw with a metal cutting blade. I will round the corners with that, and then go back and straighten them out later.

Below: I was too lazy to take the power supply and all of the cables out, so I just taped the ends and fan hole to keep the dust out. I dont think it should be a problem!

Well, im gettin down to the real nitty gritty of this mod now, there is definately no turning back. So far I am very happy with how things are going. The shroud and and other cuts have gone better than expected, and my brothers jagsaw skills should come in handy for the next part biggrin.gif. as always feel free to leave any comments or suggestions!

Sounds great! Be sure the 140's fit in between the handle if you are planning to use a shroud. The 120's were pretty close to the plastic handles soo measure twice, cut once. Thanks for the sub, I appreciate it

Nice work! Seems like you and me are almost doing the same project! I'm doing the same sort of think to my case, an Azza Helios 910. Same issue, doesn't fit a 360 rad, need to put one in lol.

Looks like it's working out pretty good so far! I hope you don't get any metal shavings in your PSU cables from the jig saw though - they would be a pain to get out. Keep up the good work!

Great minds think alike! wink.gif Checked out your log, props for making your own shroud, that must way more difficult (read: satisfying) than buying something from Koolance.

I taped the connectors pretty dang well so hopefully no shavings. Also, the PSU fan is facing down so very little risk there! You keep up the good work as well mate!

I will check it out! Since it appears to be a massive thread, do you now offhand if anyone has tried to put a 360 rad on top of (or anywhere for that matter) a Storm Scout?

Well I went searching as I'm a member over there and not even I have read through all those pages , but from what I could gather, is a few of the members talked about putting a 360 up front and a couple talked about a 240 up top other than that couldnt find any definite pics to support any such mods so hope this help as there are a ton of other great advise and mods in the thread

Just found this....member B_Negative put a 360 up top https://www.overclock.net/computer-cases/525009-official-coolermaster-storm-scout-club-2258.html
Bigfatwilly put a 240 in bottom https://www.overclock.net/case-mod-work-logs/823121-cm-storm-spectre-complete.html
mr charles's build https://www.overclock.net/case-mod-work-logs/758141-cm-scout-seal-edition.html

I found all to be very good reading and alot of good info I thought I would share
