Conclusion

PCWizKid is impressed at the quality and features of Cooler Master Storm series cases.  The Scout specifically looks compact compared to its brother the "Sniper" however it can pack everything in there except the kitchen sink (which in this case would be a water cooling radiator) .  As demonstrated in the video review  this neat, clean and functional case proves how Cooler Master excels in the design of hard core gamers and those looking to take their rig to a Lan Party.   The cooling options are positioned in the right spots for keeping components cool and the inside fresh.   The inside support for cable management is excellent and allowed a 1000 Watt non modular PSU to be installed and packed without issues. If your looking for a case thats not to big or too small, this one is just right!COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Computer Case With Side Panel Window
