Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 Case Review
4 January 2013
Summary: Having released the CM Storm Scout three and a half years ago, Cooler Master has had plenty of time to update its design, and when it comes to aesthetics, we think the company has greatly improved the original product.
Summary: Final Thoughts
Looking at the CM Storm Scout 2 nothing really jumps out to me, but with that said I do like this case. It would be a case I would recommend to anyone looking for a case in this price range especially a gamer who would be taking their machine to LAN parties.
Pros: – Heavy duty carrying handle, – Room for up to 7 hard drives, – Support for long video cards, – Side panel window, – Easy installation
Conclusion: Passing judgement on a case like the Scout 2 is always difficult, as despite its sub-par cooling, it has numerous points that work in its favour. The build quality is excellent with very few exceptions, which makes the Scout 2 a wonderful case to work with.
Summary: The CM Storm Scout 2 doesn't really offer a lot of functional features for such a price tag. It is, interestingly enough, 10 Euros more expensive in Europe and 10 USD cheaper in the US than the original Scout 1, something that makes little sense to me.
Pros: Very good construction, Extremely comfortable, sturdy, and steel-reinforced handle, Extruded sides for additional space, LED on/off switch, Space for up to seven other fans, Anti-Theft system for gaming peripherals, 3.5" to 2x2.5" HDD bay adapter included, HDD rails for easy installation, screw-l...
Cons: Steep price for the feature set, Only one fan included, No dust filter on some intake fan locations, Compact dimensions do not allow for very large CPU coolers to be installed, No external 3.5" bay, ODD locking mechanism does not hold very well
Summary: If you are looking for portability without having to sacrifice space, the Cooler Master CM Storm Scout II will fit the bill, as it includes the ability to fit a full size ATX motherboard and Full size graphics card without modifications.
Pros: Great Versatility, Good air flow with the option of 9 x 120mm fans, Good Portability
Cons: Only one fan provided, might need an 8pin CPU extension cable, internal spacing might pose a few minor problems with some water-cooling units
