Nice side window you got there.

add more light, idk, it looks kinda dim with the cover on, also i dont remember if the scout has space under the case but you can add lights there to add a underglow effect

Tuff love!
you ready?

PAINT THE PSU!
Get rid of that Tube light and get a NZXT rope light

Is that Duct Tape on the back of the front bezel?

Adding fan grills is a nice touch and it makes it safer for your knuckles to be in the case while its on... lol don't ask

A nice dual bay fan controler is practical and looks SHMEXZ as all he11!
