I had the scout, its a nice case, but modding it is difficult, unless you do what these guys did : http://www.themodnation-forums.com/view ... &sk=t&sd=a
most excellent!

I need some comments on this one though: Lian Li PC V351 http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product/pr ... s_index=64
ideas?
(I was thinking 5870, gene 3, i5 750 with WC and windows, and LED under and inside)?

It's needs a whole new rear section if you plan to fit a cooler of substance. The Mobo tray is to low at the back, with the result that when you slide out the tray, bigger coolers foul on the chassis. Otherwise its a great case.

Well, right now, I aint got nothing, some cheapy droop, but, I have sold everything to upgrade and chase that pc thing again..I dont know why, had a monster, no have a fairy, he he he, but thats why I need some thoughts on a very small case, like the lian li v351, or something similar, then just gonna do some LEDs, maybe h50 and some perspex windowy things :) - I have had the gigabyte aurora, modfied antec p182, and the scout, which is nice, just couldnt fit WC in anywhere, but that was a limit on the WC loops I had..and I had the v8 in the scout, looked really mean! :D he he he

Cool, i was just wondering will i be able to fit in a GPU cooler as well?

I was considering getting the v10, but then did some research, and the v8 is more fitted for my case + the v10 is too big...

Yap the v10 is huge! :) -- depends on what gpu cooler, before i SLId the machine, I had that HR-GTX thing, fitted perfect with the GTX280 in that case, but offcourse, only one card would then fit, due to after the fact that you add a fan, that thing takes up like 3 and a half slots.

Well, if you *really* want a response, that style of case isn't really my cup of tea. :-)

Recently got a cooler Master CM690 III. Well thought out case except for an issue where the video card is too long and requires turning the 3.5" drive bays into laptop drive bays to fit it in. At least they are adjustable but I lose 5 3.5" slots now. Power button under a cover at the top is also a bit odd, since I use it often. Maybe the bios supports switch on via keyboard...

You leave your computer plugged in?? What about power spikes and lightning? I always unplug mine.

It has a surge protector that has protected it and last pc for years. Hopefully it continues to do so...
