If you want air cooling in your case, you will be better with the Enforcer - but you will have to add a 200mm fan up top (or 2x120mm) to do so. With this, it will move much more air and quieter than the scout. The scout, on the other hand, comes with more fans preinstalled.

Personal taste has a lot to do with it in the end, both are very capable cases.

You should read up on positive and negative case pressure, then consider all of the different routes for air to enter each case, and how much dust this will bring with it. The side window on the scout has openings that let in air and can have fans attached, but there's no dust filters on them The side window on the enforcer won't let air in, which will create a wind tunnel and thus more airflow over HDD's and potentially less dust. But if you went for a dual GPU setup, the side fan potential on the scout might help you cool your GPU's more directly. SO many options and points to consider indeed!

In terms of cooling wouldn't it be best to have the highest amount of cool air being pushed in the front of the case and then the highest amount of air being exhausted?

I am now on custom liquid for the CPU and GPU, but my GPU was on air for over a year, and my CPU was under an H50 during that time. Personally I never used the side panel fan openings, as I never had a need for them, My 6950 would idle in the 30's. When using the front, rear and top fan, my case would get about as dusty as one would expect. In my dorm room with poor central air filters and the case on the floor, it would get lots of dust pretty quickly, but at home with great filtration, there is great dust control. Obviously, the dust factor is related to the number of fans you have and the intake/exhaust ratio, as well as the environment. If you have any other questions on the storm scout and how it compares to other cases, they have a massive club here on OCN, they would be glad to answer any questions you had im sure. Storm Scout Club. If you dont put side fans on, the effect will be the same as the enforcer, which has no side panel fans. What willibj is trying to explain is that you need to have more air coming in than is being exhausted, that way air/dust wont come in places (such as the unfiltered side openings) and add to the dust, air will only be pulled in by the fans. If you have more air coming in than going out, there will be air escaping from the case, like through the side panel openings, kepping dust from getting in.

EDIT: SEVEN PAGES of responses? I wish my build log had this much traffic! lol

It's way too far away to attempt to put together a parts list if you're not buying until November. There will be too many new products and too many pricing changes to make a decent decision on anything other than case, power supply, and some accessories.

Is this why you should only focus on positive or negative airflow?

I'm planning on buying a few pieces before hand.As I get more money.
