CM Storm Scout 2 Mid Tower Chassis

The highly anticipated recreation of the benchmark in LAN gamer cases, Scout 2 offers refinements on its predecessor’s design to arrive at a theme steeped in the future of combat. These refinements are bolstered by improved steel reinforced carrying handles, bolted to the core structure. Front console connections have been updated to USB 3.0 while offering protection from adverse travel conditions with hidden sliding cover. Support for current high-end hardware is greatly increased by a removable HDD cage that supports VGAs like the NVIDIA GTX 690 and AMD HD 7990, making the Scout 2 better prepared for all conditions. Scout 2 comes in Midnight Black, Gunmetal Gray and Ghost White color.

Pickup and go at a moment’s notice. Scout 2 comes equipped with comfortable and durable rubber-lined steel reinforced carrying handles that are bolted directly to the steel frame.
Scout 2 can support up to 9 fans for maximum airflow to keep your chassis cool.
The HDD cage can be easily removed to accommodate long high-end graphics cards.
A quick sliding cover protects your ports against damage from travel and other household hazards. It includes 2 x USB 3.0 and 2 x USB 2.0 ports with audio jacks and a LED On/Off switch.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than my Corsair Special Edition White Graphite Series 600T Mid-Tower!!!

Pros: Plenty of fans can be put in my case, including one on the bottom.
Carrying handle makes it easier to move when needed/wanted.
Cabling management is better and easier to manage than my Corsair case.
LED's on fan can turn on/off when I want them too.

Cons: Wish it had an option to turn a second set of 120mm fans into a 140mm fan.

5 out of 5 eggsTop quality! Rates an elusive wow! Attention to detail throughout.

Pros: Quality workmanship and design throughout. Heavy guage steel coupled with well nade plastic components. The entire front grill has a mesh screen under the perforated bezel for dust control on the two 120mm front intake fans. Only drawback seems to that you have to remove the front bezel for cleaning. There. Is a removable honeycomed cover on top to facilitate easy install of top two exhaust fans.
The tooless drive bays are also heavy gauge steel aand well designed. The drive rails skip into screw holes on the drive and slide into a compartment. There are special drawers/ trays for 2.5 anand smaller ssd.
The cable management holes have rubber grommets / gaskets and plenty of room to stash cables neatly out of the way.
There are thumb screws on each expansion slot and both side panels albiet a bit small fir my big mitts, they also have phillips.and fkaflat head screwdriver slots.
Superior Attention to detail down to rubber pads to mount the power supply to reduce vibration noise. They even included an adapter with a phillios head to slide onto motherboard stand off.
I am quite impressed....not easy to accomplish.

Cons: Thumb screws a bit small for big hands. Not any real cobs to speak of except perhaps a better filter system for front intake fans.

Other Thoughts: I have done about a dozen builds this us the finest case I have ever bought
.plus Newegg has exceptional custoner service.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid case

Pros: Good solid case. Easy to install stuff. Included fans are quiet. Came with plenty of screws and drive mounting rails.

I have 7 fans installed not including the P/S fan and it is whisper quiet and everything runs cool.

Cons: I had trouble installing a Thermaltake fan control screen in one of the external drive slots. The screen's housing is far shorter than a CDROM drive and there is no way to put a screw in anywhere because the outer housing of the case blocks screw holes that are near the front of the case. It's install I just can't hit the screen very hard or it my push farther into the case.

4 out of 5 eggsCase review

Pros: So far every thing is good. really cool inside and great for space and cable management. I love the carry handle at the top making it easier to carry.

Cons: I did not receive a back red LED case fan which is one of the reasons i chose this case the color would go great with my other parts. It's not a big deal i did receive a black 120mm fan in the back instead. There are 2 clear 120mm fans in the front but no LED kinda upsets me.

5 out of 5 eggsSleek & Functional

Pros: Strikes a great balance with the design. It's cool without being overbearing. It's also got a lot of extremely useful features.

The popouts on each side, combined with the routing cutouts are supremely helpful in keeping everything tidy. I had no problem running pretty much all my cabling out-of-sight through the back panel, while still very orderly and accessible.

Plenty of fan-mounting options. I actually don't use these, but there's plenty of room to upgrade for air cooling. It doesn't look like it'd be hard to mount the radiator for a liquid setup either.

Dedicated LED on/off button. Super helpful. I usually run a very 'stealth' look, with no LED's. But sometimes I want to feel flashy. Now you can do both.

Oversized carry handle. Not only is it handy and secure for moving your rig around, or in my case, picking it up to clean my desk, but it's integrated well into the design. Doesn't look odd or out of place.

Cons: The LED on/off button looks and feels exactly like the reset button. If you just feel around for the switch without looking, you're constantly going to accidentally restart your machine.

The plastic quick-mounting system used for the drive racks are a bit loose in there tolerances, and feel a little cheap. They ultimately get the job done, but can be a bit loud with a regular HDD. Fortunately, my main drive is an SSD, so unless I'm accessing my HDD's I never hear it. If you're running an SSD you probably won't notice. But you'll care a lot if you have to use a CD drive a lot. Spinning up a CD sounded like a gyrocopter taking off.

The bottom-mounted fan slots have a pull-out dust filter, yet the front intakes do not. The dust filter has to be removed by taking off the side panel and popping off the front panel from behind, which means maneuvering around the HDD rack. There's no easier way to clean the dust from the front intake, which collects the most dust. Ultimately not a deal-breaker, but seems like a major design oversight.

5 out of 5 eggsPhenominal!

Pros: Excellent looking, LOTS of fans and air movement, cable management, air filters, front USB 3.0, plenty of room for expansion and will accommodate the largest of video cards, integrated carrying handle, etc...

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: The case is phenomenal!!! I went from an Antec 900 to this and am blown away. It is better in every way EXCEPT the side window should have been larger. Other than that its awesome!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, recommended!

Pros: I got the first version of this too and it has lots of room, great look and feel to it, and the handle is very sturdy.

Cons: None really, maybe a little smaller case but its a full tower.

5 out of 5 eggsdid someone order a beast?

Pros: I love this case! It has room for so much and more! Ample space on top with a removable grill for twin 120 radiators, great cable management system that makes a mess look good, and buttons on top of the case with access door to Ian and audio ports. But the best thing of all? The top handle is rubberized making for the most comfortable lab box around! I look forward to showing this beast off!

Cons: USB 3.0 mobo connector is big. This interfered with my setup as the mobo (msi 970) I'm using is a bit shorter and cramped placing the on board connector right under the second video card. Now my vid card is pushing the connector like it were in a crowded bus.
