NZXT Phantom 410 vs CM Storm Scout 2, for New Build.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there, I was doing a new budget build, a Gaming PC. I've bought the following components :

-Intel Core i5-3450 @ 3.1GHz
-MSI B75MA-P45
-DeepCool ICEEDGE 400XT
-G.Skill Sniper 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz [4*2]
-Seasonic S12II 520W
-Gigabyte 7850 2GD5/OC
-OCZ Agility 3 120GB
-WD Green 2TB @ 7200RPM
-Asus 24X DVD-RW

Now, all I need to get is a new case, but I'm confused between CM Storm Scout 2 and NZXT Phantom 410, can you guys help me out? I will really appreciate it.

It's mostly a matter of aesthetic preference between those 2 cases.

The CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced looks pretty nice IMO, and I would go with that (coming from somebody who previously had a Phantom 410 as it is).

They are both nice cases, but in hindsight the 410 seemed a little more "plastic-y" if you will than the CM appears. Functionally they should be pretty similar.

I also like those handles on the CM.

The 410 was pretty modd-able, if you go over the official thread and you see what some people did, but perhaps you can get away with some of that stuff in the CM too (if it's your cup of tea)

Yes, even I had that in mind. Scout 2 has a better build-quality and those handles can be pretty useful as I have to go for annual LAN Parties, so I'll go with the CM Storm Scout 2, thanks!
