I'd personally go with the Scout... Why? Well good sir, just sit there by the belt on your pants and I'll elaborate most swiftly... You see, the Scout has not only a wonderful design and incredible flat black military grade look to it, but it also has the advantage of being extremely practical. The handle on it makes moving your PC very easy, not to mention, the handle is made of steel and physically bolted to the PC's exoskeleton, ensuring that there is no danger of watching your fortune of PC parts crash to the ground in transit. This is not the only advantage. The Scout is also capable of delivering superb air flow. With up to two 120mm fans mounted at the front, 2 on the case window, 1 on the back and 1 at the top of the case, there can be a massive amount of airflow if you desire to keep things cool. Yet, I have not gone on to explain the ease of cable management. Although not necessarily the best, the Scout is very well capable of being a good contender for compact mid-towers in terms of keeping cables neat and organized. Due to a depressed section in the back panel, there is plenty of room to stache and organize cables to your hearts delight. As it comes coupled with several anchors also incorporated into its structure for zip-ties. Finally, I'd just like to conclude that there is major support by the OCN community for it... Namely, the fan club.... If you have any doubts what so ever, just visit their page, pose the question, and they'll have it answered in a jiffy.
And yet there still is one point I have not addressed.... Look at how brilliantly sexy the thing is! It's like the gods came down from heaven, took some military hardware, made sweet righteous righteous love with it, and then gave birth to only the most classy of cases! Tool less cases that is... The damn thing is Tool-less! This makes upgrades even easier than they were in the first place!
Really... There is only one choice, and that is the CM Scout... For only $30 more, the purchase is easily
justifiable! There's simply too many features that you can not deny for only that small of a surcharge!
(Build Quality is really nice too, when I first opened the box of mine I was impressed with both the paint job and the solidity and rigidity of the case).
P.S. Watercooling is very possible in this case in case you were wondering, I have a pictures of both Air Cooling and Watercooling.
Well, I hope this helped,
