CM Storm Scout 2 Review

Sam ChenSeptember 27, 2012

Second Generation Scout

When Cooler Master first introduced the CM Storm Scout, it quickly became one of my most highly recommended cases. Despite the case being oriented as a budget gamer case, it had been packed with tons of features which made it one of the best price to performance cases out there. While the CM Storm Scout is still a fairly competitive case, the design is almost 3 years old and it’s definitely time for an update.

This then brings us to our review for today, the recently introduced CM Storm Scout 2 gaming case. Like the original CM Storm Scout, the CM Storm Scout 2 is still a mid tower case, still features a windowed sidepanel (albeit a bit smaller), and still features the unique handle design that made the original CM Storm Scout so popular. That said, the CM Storm Scout 2 has also received some upgrades as well including USB 3.0 support, full support for any graphics card on the market as well as a full on redesign as well.

Does the CM Storm Scout 2 live up to the high standards set by the original CM Storm Scout? Let’s find out!
