5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely love this case!!!

Pros: 1st I love the way this case looks, the gunmetal exterior with the all black interior looks sick

2nd I was expecting one rear led fan but was pleasantly surprised when i opened it up and found 1 plain 120mm in the back and TWO 120mm in front! 2 free fans, yay!

3rd Cable management was a breeze. The rubber grommets and all the points on the back side for zip ties is awesome.

Cons: Based on the included zip ties, CoolerMaster should stick to cases and the rest. Out of the 10 included, only 3 didnt break. Very small problem though :)

Other Thoughts: I love how roomy this case is. I am planning on getting some lighting for the interior as well as a fan controller and a few more fans. Great case at a great price!

4 out of 5 eggsIf you have a big video card (read this)

Pros: *Quick snap in hard-drive mounts - just snap on the drive, slide in, and snap...done.

*Love the handle!

* USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2 ports and audio on the top

*Great case fans - quiet.

*EASY to integrate Coolermaster Seidon 120XL Liquid cooling (love that too).

*Easy and quick to take case doors on and off.

*Relatively lightweight

*easy mount for one SSD

*Lots of easy to access fan mounts.

*good/easy back cable routing. plenty of room

Cons: *No 3.5" face-plate adapter for a card reader (or whatever)

*Case was "bowed" slightly so if I tightened down the screws for the video card it would put force on the card and pull the far end up (upward force on the slot lock)

*B quality but I guess you don't get what you don't pay for

*They should use clips or easy hardware for the removable hard-drive rack. Trying to get a screwdriver in there once the motherboard is installed is treacherous

*Next to impossible to screw in mounting screws for big video cards. The case door frame is in the way! The width of the EVGA 770 GTX goes past the level where the mounting hardware resides - by like 1.5" So length is not the only factor with cases in video cards! Check the width too

*Don't run RAID 5 with hard drives if you're going to have a huge video card -

*Does not integrate well with MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX - bluetooth/widi/wifi card almost impossible to mount (I had to damage/modify my face plate to get it installed. If you install it before mounting the motherboard you'll never get it out if it goes bad!

Other Thoughts: I would have chosen a different (bigger) case had I known I was going to have to remove the hard drive rack. I can modify it (saw it in half) and squeeze in 5 drives total - 3 in the bottom, 2 in the removable rack instead of 7. If it were based on my experience alone, I'd give it 3 eggs, but not everyone is going to get a huge card.

4 out of 5 eggsCase

Pros: The case is stylish. has a nice side window, it is a cool gunmetal color, it has nice cable management features, it is easy to work inside of, it has lots of fan placing.

Cons: it is limited to the cooler it supports. (I had to mount my rad fans outside of the top to install my corsair H100i, and I don't think that an H110 would fit.)

4 out of 5 eggsfantastic mid tower

Pros: after watching multiple YouTube case reviews, i chose this one. It has everything you would ask for in a mid tower in the price range it is in. I think its worth more, but I'm not complaining :)

I love the carrying handle, and i even use the side rails that sort of act like the cosmos 2 rails to carry it as well. using all 3 optical drives. i had to modify the nzxt lcd fan controller by putting screw on other side (not cases fault!). but other than that, the tool-less switches worked as intended.

It didn't have enough fans. I could have gotten the white with more, but I could spend less and get more. So i got the CM 140mm for the front and the CM 120mm 4pack for the door and top. Don't forget the case comes with extended screws for the front fans! I would have put another 120mm on the bottom but my PSU (Corsair HX750) takes up the majority of the bottom space and a 120mm i tried did not fit. With that said, I wanna mention the larger grommet cable hole by PSU was a great change from the first scout!

Cable management was cake with 1in. of working space and extra since the door panel is sort of popped out. I don't use the stormguard, but just want to say all those brackets in the back are really good quality metal. i thought they were plastic! and speaking of quality. the doors are pretty great too. not flimsy at all.

And lastly, an aesthetic plus, i wanted a side panel that had a window. and the design was flawless compared to other windows i saw. it perfectly shows the heatsink, RAM, and GPU just fine. and the space for the 2 120mm fans is great placement.

Cons: Ok, the reasons why I took 1 egg off my rating.

1) once you install the top fans, putting the top cover back on makes it pop out towards the back. It is locked in place in all 6 spots though! but like in the middle of the mesh grill, it has a slight issue being flat. but you do not notice it unless you press down. no biggie.

2) Mentioned above in pros, the tool-less design for the optical drives is great. just wish it was the other design from their other cases to match its sort of sleek/rounded corner, feel.

3) I know some people just toss or take out fan filters, but would be nice if they had an option to buy more. On that subject. Why only 1 fan? especially with the LED power button capable of turning on 2? But thanks for sort of solving it in the White version :)

4) I see the CM HAF922 & CM Enforcer (both same price range) having esata port in the front. why not add it here? I haven't done the research, but i guess its something outdated and why they removed it from storm stryker. I love the front port cover though!

Other Thoughts: for the next case (storm scout 3?), I have a few suggestions from what i've seen you do with your other CM cases.

-Change tool-less optical drives to the ones you got in the other cases. you know exactly which ones im talking about!
-make HDD drive bay cages rotatable, so they can become hot-swappable from the front maybe? not sure if this was CM or if its beneficial.
-add an esata port to the front just like the other cases around this price point.
-the drive sleds from the HAF922. I like how it covers them. or add another ssd-friendly sled :)
-more top room for long radiators. especially if you want push pull. (i've seen people mount fans on opposite side where it almost touches the top handle. so it's still doable with this case! just looks funky)
-fan filters (the removable bottom one only covers the psu. however i do want to point out you can use same filter on the bottom middle if people were wondering.
-and lastly and its been said before... more fans!

Easy fixes for current scout 2 owners, but I dont see them selling them as spare parts on their website :(

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible

Pros: Where to start? This case comes with everything that I wanted in the Scout, while keeping out the parts I didn't. It has an enormous amount of cable management space in the back, along with rubber grommets in the case for your cables. I went from a Rosewill Blackbone case which had about the width of the side panel on this case for cable management, and still somehow managed to get my cables through. After using this one, I will never go back to one without enough space in the back. Another thing is that the top fan cover, which is mesh, comes off easily to help put in the CPU power connector (Tremendous help). Last major pro is that the one Hard Drive cage can be removed if you have a giant GFX card, but this isn't a problem for me.

I also love the fact that it gives you one fan, which could have been a con if I hadn't had some from my previous case. My build went in near perfect, and I had no problem with it overheating like in my other case. Build on other thoughts.

Cons: Only comes with one fan, and the LED fan button has an odd connection that I do not have anything to match up to.

Other Thoughts: Price is a little much for my budget, but it is worth it considering I will not be replacing my parts due to overheating from my case.

Build (Budget gamer build):

MOBO: ASRock H61M/U3S3
PSU: Corsair CX 500
CPU: Intel i3 2120 3.3 Ghz
Ram: G-Skill Ripjaws 8gb
HDD: Western Digital 320gb sata III
SSD: Kingston 90gb sata III
GFX Card: HIS Radeon HD 6870 Ice-q x

5 out of 5 eggsDead Sexy!

Pros: Solid, spacious, and versatile... yeah baby! This case has all of the things a full size monster tower has. It is little wider than say a lan-buddy, but that is where the space really comes from. Cable routing was a breeze and the mobo tray hides all the excess cables. The back panel is stiffer than most stamped steel cases and all of the pci slot screwa and case case screws are knurled thumb screws. The front plastic bezel is nice and thick. The top handle does not flex or creak when slinging the pc into the back seat of the car. The power and reset buttons feel solid too. It took me 30 minutes to assemble everything... and I think 10 of those I just spent admiring the black interior. I installed 4 extra fans, (that makes 6 all-together including the power supply) and it has space for 2 more! Awesome! Although it seems to stay much cooler than the previous case even with the fans turned down to about 1/4 speed. If someone is disappointed with Storm Scout 2 case, they are probably used to spending more money... this is a great case at a fair price. Good work Cooler Master! Boo Ya!

Cons: The butch-ness that makes this case great is also the source of its immense weight. I have had full tower cases that don't weigh as much. No 3.5" front bay for media reader or other accessory. The 3 full size bays have a nice screw-less retaining system, that absolutely would not hold the fan controller. I had to remove one of screw-less retainers so I could access the front screw holes on either side of the drive bay for mounting the fan controller, and then they were not accessible either. I had to poke out the grounding tabs to get a screw driver in at a reasonable angle to turn the screw heads. That said, I have paid more for money for much worse cases in the past.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case because my video card was smoking hot in the old case despite having 3 fans to exhaust the heat... So I went ahead and bought four 120mm Cooler Master LED fans to go in the top and front of the case. I also bought a Cooler Master 1300 Watt power supply that came with a fan controller. The fan controller only runs 3 fans, so I put 1 top fan and both front fans on the controller, then I connected the other top fan to the mobo. This arrangement seems to work well since the second top fan controlled by the mobo is directly over the CPU. Also the all black version was $30 cheaper, but all my PC cases are black, this gunmetal grey looks real good and the red LED fans give it a nice mill spec night time illumination feel.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Looks great, awesome side window showing just what you want, handle is niiiiccce, can fit just about anything you put in here, good cable management.

Cons: only comes with 1 stock fan, yeah I realize price is then dropped but I think it should still come with 2... not a huge deal though since you can buy a good one to add for like $13

Other Thoughts: bought with combo deal as first build, was a little skeptical because I was unsure about the gunmetal grey color and I must say that I love it!
