The first looks better. I don't think the second one gonna be a hit. The second one needs to have a redesigned front bottom. The 1st one looks sharp on the front.

I like them both.

Likes

Scout V1
Very balanced look
Window design looks cool
Very mod friendly
Overall theme looks like it came from the late 80's early 90's military

Scout V2
Sleek looking
Build quality looks very high
Should have better cooling/more options for cooling
Window doesn't show the drive bays
Mod friendly
Overall theme looks like future tech

Dislikes

Scout V1
Cross hairs don't line up with front fan
Fan vents on the window

Scout V2
Bulky bottom front(will the fan line up or be covered by the bottom?)
Fans mounts under the window (IMO window or fans not both)
Sliding cover for front I/O

Things I want to know
1. Front fan/fans
a. How many and what size?
b. Any options for other sized fans?
c. Are they LED fans and what color?
d. Will it be covered up by the front panel or line up? If it lines up with it, will it cool the bottom HDD's? If it is covered how much air flow is lost and does it look dumb?
2. What size rads will fit with out modding?
3. What type of filters are being used?

This Storm Scout 2 case looks great.
post #69 of 77
The deciding factor between the 2 is the thick bottom part of the Scout II. This makes the case so ugly. The possibility of putting 2 120 mm intake fans or even a thick 240 mm radiator on the front of the case without cutting into the optical drive is not possible anymore (this kind of mod don't look good). I like the Scout II side doors though I prefer the CM Storm Enforcer's side door better (pictured below). I like to see the other side's case door to be the same (minus the acrylic window) as opposed to the Enforcer's opposite side door which is just plain & doesn't match the other side.

My guess is CM is sticking with 1 size 120 mm fans on this case. You can probably put a thin 240 mm rad at the top area but you can't do a push & pull set up (only either push or pull). Having the option of being able to do a push & pull set up at the top area would mean adding significant height on the case. I don't think CM increase the height significantly on the case.

The case most probably has better cord management than the old one. The motherboard tray hole is in line with current CPUs orientation. There will be rubber grommets to hide the holes used to get the cords in. I like the front I/O panel on Scout II.

I like to see CM making future mid tower cases having the option to put 2 thick 240 mm radiators below the optical drive bay & facing towards the side door on each sides with 2 front 120 mm intake fans taking cool air from the outside. This way the mid tower cases still have enough radiators to cool a high powered (quad SLI/Xfire set up) like the Cosmos II's bottom drive cage turned into a radiator placement area by some modders much like the one in picture below on Cosmos II mod (in the case with mid tower cases, the radiators are placed vertically).



By the way it looks now, I won't be buying the case. It's just plain ugly. It's also bigger & thicker than the old one which I also don't like as I prefer the size of the old one.

By the way, the Enforcer is a good looking case if CM redesigned the ugly fan vent holes on top & removed the drive bay door.
