i am waiting for them to make a blue version of the blackhawk ultra which will be my next case if they do smile.gif

Great insight here. I don't think I'd be moving the case around too much so not sure if the material matters. Unless it does with cooling? I liked the scout's handles, but now that I think about it I wouldn't be bringing it anywhere.

I have not wc'ed yet, hoping to by end of year, which I took into consideration when I purchased my switch 810. Beautiful case at a reasonable cost with plenty of room for any future upgrades. If you won't wc bow, but may in the future just buy a case which will work for the future

well looking at the scout it doesn't look like it has very good air flow also it doesn't have too many holes for cable management which is the deal breaker for meand it doesn't seem to have as much space for water cooling systems if you do decide to water cool also the black hawk looks like it comes with more fans out of the box also the scout only supports 2 2.5inch drives natively where as the blackwalk can do up to 6 so you plan to install an ssd or any other type of 2.5 drive thats something too consider

scout comes with red fans which is nice if you like red

I don't like the look of the scout but thats just me sorta looks toyish to me where as the blackwalk looks like a mean machine or maybe the names are just trowing me off biggrin.gif

i think the black hawk looks better buts thats just me smile.gif
i think telling someone you have a blackhawk sounds nicer then saying you have a scout biggrin.gif

Op, you know we all love you. So do us all a favor, get the blackhawk. So that you can return the love by posting rig pictures not in a scout. But in a BlackHawk! thumb.gif

lol I love the advise. You are right. I told my wife I was getting a blackhawk, she said cool. I asked her what she thought about a scout and she shrugged. She was going the dishes at the time so that might have played into it though.
