CM Storm deploys Scout, the True LAN Gaming Chassis. Mobility, security and 20 years of advanced technology converge in one rugged portable mid-tower chassis. Every Scout is engineered with Storm Tactics: a dedicated focus on Strength, Security and Control. The Scout blends into the darkness with a menacing all black interior showcasing your internal hardware. An automotive tinted side window with dual fan exhaust brings efficient cooling with subtle transparency. A single button triggers stealth mode deactivating cooling fan LEDs. This covert outlook is complimented by innovative internal designs allowing swapping CPU coolers without motherboard removal. Inside, intelligent cable management maximizes space while supporting internal 2.5 and 1.8 SSD bays. On top, a rugged, steel reinforced handle allows the Scout to be easily wielded in a single hand.

I have always owned Cooler Master cases and love the simplicity, durability and their out of box cooling capabilities. There were a few features I was looking for in a new case:
1) Power button somewhere OTHER than the very front (I tend to accidentally kick it at times)
2) Bottom mounted PSU
3) Good out of box cooling
I came across this case and it had everything I needed plus more. I have yet to change the factory fans and haven't even added side fans (the plastic still sits over the vents) yet my system's temperature remains consistently low, even after a full day of gaming.
There's lots of room for cables (running them behind the mb can be tight and tricky, but it's doable) and even a cutout to mount a bottom CPU fan bracket (no need to remove the MB or tray. Buy a bag of small zip ties - you'll find them very useful. The buttons and front ports are angled up top for easy access but tucked away just enough to avoid any accidents. The front audio jacks are convenient for that headset when you need to turn down the speakers to avoid waking people. The handles are a huge plus, especially if like myself you move your system around the house or frequently take it out to clean.
The front panel pops out and cleans easily, but lately I've been using a vacuum to suck out the dust from the front and that's been working good. The factory fans have been sufficient enough for my use - I have no complaints there.
Some people have trouble with the plastic retainer clips (complaining of easy breakage, etc) - just read the instructions and study the clips for a minute or two before mounting your drives and you'll find them easy to use.
This is a large and heavy case, but it's tough and should last just as long (if not longer) as the other CM cases I have owned, with enough room and options for future upgrades.
I paired this case up with a CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V PSU and use it for gaming. I have no regrets here and highly recommend this case.

Cooler Master Scout
