Interesting tongue.gif Not that I want the accessory box though, but I might pick up the 300R HDD upgrade kit if I order something else from scan. I would get the grommets too but they're still too expensive for me biggrin.gif

I found a picture about the 300R and the Phanteks PH-TC14PE.

hey guys
I am going to buy new case this week and can't decide between storm scout 2 and carbide 400 R ..I want to know your opinions without a bias answer for the corsair smile.gif...also I want to ask you about the noise level from the carbide 400 as I noticed from the design that noise might escape from the top of the case
post #3295 of 4610
there both nice cases, but im not too sure about the handles? on top of the storm scout unless your going to be going to LAN partys and things involving you moving it around alot theres no need biggrin.gif id go for the corsair smile.gif

Honestly, I owned the original scout and was looking into the scout 2 as a replacement. But the corsair cases as a whole are just nicer than what the scout 2 brings to the table. If you really want a case that has a handle I would go with the C70 over the scout 2. The air cooling options are basically identical, but you have more headroom at the top of the case if you ever decide you want to go with watercooling. The scout 2 is restricted by a lot of motherboards unless you are willing to run it with the top cover removed and the fans on the outside. Just some things to consider. And as far as space goes in the 400R its pretty close to what you will get in a C70, which is much more than what you will get in the Scout 2.

thanks guys for the reply..No I am not looking for a handle i don't move a lot with my pc ,I like the corsair design over the storm scout 2 apart from the Firewire in the front-panel and not sure if one day I will use an E-atx mobo
now is there anyway to detect the noise level from the case as I said earlier I am not sure if the case design allows noise to escape from the case

It really all depends on how many fans and what type of fans you will be using. I have a fully loaded out 500R with 9 case fans + 2 on my cpu heatsink + 2 in my gpu. And really the only thing I can hear is the noise of the 140mm fans on the side panel and that's cuz they are running at 1350 rpm to help keep my gpu and ram cooler. So there are many factors that go into figuring out if noise is going to escape or really even be noticeable.

I love the window mod. I plan on doing the same to my 500R one day soon.
