Top customer reviews
1. Power/reset buttons and four usb ports sit at the top of the case which was primary to my buying a new case to replace my old one that had them at or near the bottom of the case.
2. An attractive case.
3. Keeps everything cool as a cucumber with ample venting and three large fans at the front, back and top.
4. Yet it is much quieter than my old case that had only one small fan running at the back.
5. Came with plenty of screws of differing sizes, spare hand tightening screws for the side panels and zip tie downs for organizing cable and wires inside the case.
6. Came with a pack of stand offs for the MB.
7. Attractive red lighting from the front and back interior fans.
8. Instruction manual. (More on this below.)
1. The instruction manual had the title and all the subtitles written in English. But the actual instructions were written in some foreign language I am unable to identify. Strangest thing I've ever seen (or one of them.) Fortunately, there were very good picture illustrations with each set of instructions that made it possible for me to figure out the set up. I found this both frustrating and humorous at the same time. But mostly frustrating.
2. Latch release side panels would make this case perfect but I'm not complaining. For the price this case is an absolute jewel.
3. The reset button is too small and is indented so that it is not easy to push in. Of course it is rarely used and it's size ensures that it isn't pushed by accident but this hardly seems necessary. A little more prominence would be nice.
More info: I am not a gamer but I do have a fairly high end pc relatively speaking. With an AMD 9850 quad core cpu, 4x2gb of RAM, Radeon 5770 series graphics, one SSD and two HDD's installed internally. This all makes for some fairly good heat generation inside my case.
In my old case my cpu core temps ran around 40 - 44 plus consistently (not hot I know) and my hard drives about the same. With this case my core temps as I write this are 31-32 degrees and my hard drives are 25-26 degrees. My gpu is 38 degrees C. Downright frigid :-) .
Under heavy burden (converting a movie file format) my core temps have gotten to as high as 50 degrees but under normal use, as stated above, everything stays very cool.
When I put my hand over the top vent the air being discharged feels quite cool.
If you need/want an efficient, quiet, cool looking and running case I would high recommend the CM Storm Scout..
Picture below is my build and my friend build.
I recommend building something small in here. With one hard drive. Nothing more really. I WISH I could give this a better review but I just can't.
Some of the great things about it:
--a lot of space for a mid-size tower, so airflow really isnt an issue
--a decent amount of cable management space on the backside of the motherboard for all of the front-side ports and misc SATA ports, etc.
--welded steel handle makes carrying this thing a breeze (great for me, I use it a lot for LAN parties), and the weight alone keeps weak burglars from stealing it, lol.
--Also, the handle is great for physically securing it too. I use a steel bike cable and padlock, wrapped around the handle a few times, to attach secure it to something large, like my desk and/or my bed, so it cant be stolen from my dorm.
--large amount of places to mount case fans if you want to
--the drive bays have great mounting brackets, much easier than screws (and much better quality than the flimsy 430 elite ones)
A few of the not so great things:
--very weak LED's in the fans that came with it, but that really doesnt bother me at all
--the 140mm top-mounted fan that comes with the case is pretty useless, and barely moves any air at all. nbd though, I just used a spare to replace it
NOTE TO ALL WHO ARE THINKING OF BUYING THIS / HAVE PURCHASED IT: google 'The Coolermaster Storm Scout Club'. Overclockers.net has an extremely useful guide for this case that will answer many questions you might have (ex. will xxxx cpu cooler fit? or will yyyyy video card fit? etc.) It also has a lot of modding tips for it if you enjoy doing case mods
