Super nice case

Summary: This is the case I picked for my new computer system. It's built like military gear and looks like a gas can of WWII. The handles on top are not only cool but you will need them when moving the behemoth around. This case handled all the peripherals that I could throw at it. I wound up using all the drive bays and even added more in the front. It's super easy to work on. The sides come off with just 2 thumb screws. The bays pop out with the slide of a catch.
I wish I had known more about this case before purchase

Summary: When I bought this case I thought it was going to be amazing because it had red LED fans to match the color scheme of my motherboard layout and it had all of the expansion I needed. Unfortunately 2 of the 3 fans are not compatible with my motherboard or power supply unit. I wish I had known that before I started to assemble my parts. The two LED fans are molex cables not 4 pin like CPU heatsinks that connect directly to the motherboard.
Summary: The case works well, and cooling is fantastic. But I just with there was a little more cable management. I mean. its a 60.00$ case, so, not expecting much, but seriously. only one hole! The back plate does have an opening so you can change heat sinks easily and the front interface is great. The main issue I have is that the glass window is not as clear as in the picture, it's dark tinted and fan leds dont shine well.
Summary: Love the case, It has so much room and was able to leave the mother board clear to work on after putting all the wires and cables into it. The one problem I had though was with the instructions. I basically knew how to put things together, but when I looked through the instruction booklet it has one line in several languages and then a very small picture. It would be nice to have more detail I had to guess as to which screws went where.
Summary: this thing is built like a tank. lots of usb. tons of space for cable management. very expandable. very WIDE. led on off switch for night use, even though is red and I could sleep with it on anyways. my other computer has all green in it with no switch. that thing needs to go off at night. two tiny things wrong. one fan has a faint whistle to it. probably just a manufacturing defect limited to very few fans.
Summary: Style: 4/5 The handle is very useful for moving the case around safely. The airbrushed metal on the front panel looks professional. The window panel can get dusty if you can fit fans in it, but it's very nice to look into your computer. My only complaint is that the red lights in the case aren't bright enough. Also, I'd like to be able to hook up the lights of another fan I bought to the controller on the front.
Summary: It's hard to say anything bad about this case. It shipped with no problems or defects other than the top usb ports needed a little fixing. I bought this case because my friend has been using his for a long time. His only complaint is that the front mesh panels have a type of foam behind each of them and they tend to clog with dust (which no doubt is the intention) but because they are all individual pieces of foam it is tedious to clean.
Summary: I bought the case for a build as a graduation gift. My son picked out the case specifically from a range of cases I suggested. It's an attractive case with a convenient handle. For new builders, the case comes with a paper template installed to aid in placing your stand offs depending on the size of your motherboard. Some stand offs were pre-installed, a convenience.
Summary: I already had a fantastic PC case in the Antec Solo but I felt an itch to upgrade SOMETHING but wasn't ready to fork out the cash for anything major. Then I saw the CM Storm Scout ATX case and was immediately smitten by it's visual appeal and convenient I/O panel location. How did Cooler Master's gaming case stand up to the industry standard and leader in PC enclosures (Antec, Inc.)? Fantastic, less some trouble with support.
Summary: great value for money, rubber mounting where is counts... only 8 stars because the PCI clamps are the normal bulls##t plastic ones, and the cable-management holes are too-few and not quite in the correct places.
