Yes it does. All of the better cases have that these days. It's the older cases like yours or cases with a top PSU that don't for the most part.

That depends. They are basically the same size, but slightly different layouts. The Scout has 5 x 5.25" bays and 5 x 3.5" bays while the 912 has 4 x 5.25", 6 x 3.5", and 2 x 2.5" bays. All of the 3.5's in the Scout are riveted in while only the bottom two 3.5's are riveted in. The top 4 are removable via a latch and the 2.5's can be unscrewed. One would need to take into consideration the amount of drives they would be using to see which would fit their needs better.

The Scout uses primarily 120/140mm fans (120 in the rear and either 120 or 140 in the front and top). The 912 uses a 120 in the rear but uses a 200 or 2 x 120's in the front and the top. That allows for better overall cooling.

The 912 has more pre-cut cable management openings than the Scout does.

The 912 is less expensive unless you get the 912 Plus or Advanced (if either of those are available in your area).

As far as aesthetics goes, that is subjective.

that helps a lot thanks, I like good cable management. and as much as i love having a window i think the 912 might fit my needs better, i only have one HDD and one disk drive at the moment thats pretty much it on the front, im going to be putting the corsair h70 in this case and it seems that the interior of the 912 is a little roomier. so the only thing really going for the scout at this point is looks and the window.

(up and down) I know the length of the radiator is basically a 120mm fan with a little extra on the ends so it might be tight but do you think it would fit? or is it time to get a bigger case?

thanks guys

yeah should fit in the back x)
might have to put the fan against the case not the rad though. but yeah should work smile.gif
