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 eggsI love this case

Pros: Sturdy handle built into case
Removable drive bay so there is more room for GPU
Comes with fans that have a red backlight, and that matches the other parts I bought
Built in dust screens

Cons: At first, one of the fans in the back was making a clicking sound. Has since gone away

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a quality case that is easy to carry around, buy this one.

5 out of 5 eggsReally really like this case's practicals

Pros: I bought this because I am old and I go to LAN parties with other people who are old. So I really needed a handle, and those are shockingly hard to come by for mid-tower. Full tower yes, mini-ITX yes, not mid-tower. Like, this is only one of maybe two I even saw after 2 hours of looking.
What was really great about it was all of the arrangement and layout options. The cable routing holes on the middle line worked fairly well, there were a couple ones that bent more than I wanted, but overall the build stayed pretty clean. CM didn't skimp on spare parts. The processor install went pretty well as far as back plating and so on. The cages pulled as expected. The fan installations went pretty smoothly given the constraints of the mid-tower. The case held up pretty well to all the flipping I was doing trying to optimize the layouts. It isn't the highest-featured case you can find on the market, but it has the front-USB ports in a nice shield. Overall was really happy with what they did with this one, compares favorably to almost any other case or design I've dealt with.

Cons: The ATX install sheet is raised a bit high, which can create problems with the PSU install, as the screw holes won't line up without some pressure on the case/PSU. It did ship with a semi-working fan (but CM RMAed it right away). If you want a double-wide radiator, the structural on the case won't really accommodate it. However, I was able to get a 120mm radiator bracketed by fans on both sides on the rear panel (the recommended CM radiator mounting) and still fit the two fans on top. Also the noted lack of 8th slot (I think) which can be problem for multi-SLI. Front panel is a little scary to pop off because you rip it right from the front, but it does do the job.

Other Thoughts: You should buy this if you want a handle on a mid-tower. Also if you want ridiculous numbers of fans like me, or you just don't want to think about which mid-tower case to buy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, definitely better than my last case (Antec 900)

Pros: • Quality materials used and great design throughout
• Heavy gauge steel
• Sturdy plastic pieces (front Grill and the hardware included with this case)
• Removable dust filters included (for bottom of case)
• Large sub framed carrying handle (Rubber coated/lined)
• Black interior A+
• Power Supply mounting at the bottom not the top (But honestly, that’s how it should be)
• Channels between the case and side panels for cable management
• Watercooled ready

Cons: • Bottom filter trays are flimsy and can snap if you try to bend them
• Wasn’t able to utilize 1 standoff for my Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI Motherboard because there was no standoff location for it on this case (This could be the motherboard not the case as it does have standoff locations for both ATX and Mini ATX respectively)
• The rubber on the case handle feels lose

Other Thoughts: Considering all the pros I’ve listed above, you really do get a sturdy case, made with heavy gauge steel and what looks like ABS plastic, maybe polycarbonate (Not sure but worth the mention.) This case by itself has some weight to it so after putting all your other components in the mixture, you’re going to have a heavy beast on your hands.

The Front face/grill comes off and snaps into place just as easily and is a breeze to clean. I originally had this case on a flat surface near carpeted floor and dust was collected through it and wiped off clean with a dry rag. (It’s on my desk now.) There are two filter trays at the bottom of the case to trap dust that your PSU and optional Bottom 120mm fan will ingest (Be careful with these, they are very flimsy and can snap into pieces.) The reason this happened was because I was trying to bend one of them straight since it seemed to have come out of the mold with a slight curve which prevented it from fitting snug in the tracks the slide in underneath. Bottom line, is don’t worry about it, just leave them alone if they are loose.

The case handle feels lose (The rubber grip piece that is molded into the actual framed handle) when carrying it. This isn’t really an issue at all since the handle itself it built into the case so it’s still sturdy either way you slice this review.

This case has so much room for my needs that I found myself wanting to add more to it. This case can definitely handle some serious builds and has the room for anyone looking to mod or custom inside and out including watercooled mods. That being said, it has plenty of room for cable management. The side panels protruding out giving it an astatic look that is also functional for that very reason. It has access holes to tuck your cables over to the dark side (Don’t mind my Star Wars reference) underneath your motherboard on the other side of the panel.

Final thoughts here, this case is worth the money. Buy it and be satisfied ;)

Intel i7 4790k
Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SLI Mobo
NVidia GeForce GTX 460
(Coming Soon: MSI Radeon R9 380 DirectX 12 R9 380 GAMING 4G) I will update on this care and fitment for this case, though it shouldn’t be a problem considering this case has the room to fit it.

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!!!
