CM Storm Scout or HAF 922

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I need a new case but I don't know which one to go for.
The HAF 922 and the Storm scout looks pretty cool but which one is better in terms of airflow... or overall
I heard the storm scout has some static problems with the front IO panel that cause the system is reset.

I need opinions from you guys

It depends what you are using it for, if you want to water-cool then get the haf. I have heard that the usbs on the haf can have the same problem.

If you want airflow, look at the 600t, Silverstone rv03

It it was haf or storm I would pic the haf.

I have the storm scout and it's a great case, however I wouldn't purchase it again because it couldn't fit my 6950.

Rarely.....and I mean very rarely, I suffer from the reset problem where my scout will not switch on no matter what I do due to the static build up from the io panel I believe. But all I do is switch the psu off and wait 5 mins for it to discharge and switch it on and it's fine. It's probably my fault to be honest as I run my system 24/7 unlocked and overclocked.

Don't let that put you off because the case itself is brilliant. it keeps all my gear nice and cool and it's easy to mod which is a plus.

My vote would always sway towards the scout as it looks awsome, it's easy to cable manage and to top it off it's easy to transport.

make sure you have a graphics card and cooler that fits it
as it cannot fit the larger graphic cards or air coolers.

Good luck making a decision

yep completely stock fans i have no plan on changing them either as they work well.

All i have done to the case is replace the tinted vented window panel for a clear acrylic one i made + make a PSU cover out of a scrap piece of metal + painted the logo onto a acrylic HDD bay cover I made out of scrap.

that is one beautiful case does all the plugs in the front panel works such as the USB and the headphone? and does the case have good flow + quiet fans?
