Quoted from Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced reviews & previews
"The ability to pack a lot of fans, water cooling, multiple graphics cards and more in to this chassis really make it perfect for the ever-increasing demands of the PC gaming scene and this chassis does it all for a very reasonable price tag. Yet with all that considered, the thing I love the most about the Scout II Advanced is the new paint job, Gunmetal Grey, Midnight Black and the best of the bunch in my opinion Ghost While looks stunning and as practical as the chassis is, it also makes a feast for the eyes and simply a cool chassis to own."
"In most ways, this new version of the Scout retains the original’s iconic looks by incorporating a reinforced carrying handle and vast expanses of dust-filtering mesh for optimal airflow. Cooler Master also seems to have found an excellent balance between visibility into the case through a side window and potential fan mounting locations."
"The Scout 2 Advanced does come with a small window that is secured in place with several metal tabs. Normally we would say windows are bad but on this product the small panel is tasteful and the perfect size for a well placed appliqué."
"If you are looking for portability without having to sacrifice space, the Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 Advance will fit the bill. It includes the ability to fit a full size ATX motherboard and full size graphics card without modifications. It is an enjoyable and easy to recommend case."
"The CM Storm Scout 2 non-Advanced came out at the 99 U.S dollar/89 euro mark. It has since then dropped in price, giving Cooler Master/CM Storm the ability to offer the Scout 2 Advanced for less than 80 euros, which makes it a much more interesting buy. It is a different story in the US as the basic variant sells for 89 U.S. dollars excluding taxes while the Advanced still clocks in at above 100 U.S. dollars at Newegg. So pricing is not quite on par there yet. Our first sample, the gunmetal grey version, only came with a single 120 mm fan in the back, but the Advanced series is equipped with a total of three. Cooler Master has chosen to offer two version of the chassis, with the "Advanced" variant including two additional cooling units for a 15-20 euro premium. That said, the CM Storm Scout 2 is actually a really good buy for the price! It offers excellent construction quality, an engineered handle, and a flawless paint job. Users will also get some good use out of the LED on/off switch as the Advanced has two LED fans attached to it. All the usual features, like the extruded side panels, detachable side wall of the hard-drive bay, and removable top cover, are there, just like in the non-Advanced version, but the interior is still quite simple. However, all of this can now be had for less than the original Scout 2 when it hit retail. Pretty cool, Cooler Master, pretty cool."
