Ditch the 140 top fan and go for 2 120mm,extend the case 3" front to back,ditch the tooless PCI locks and do a white version...
These are my demands.....or the puppy gets it.

only had a quick scan back a few pages, and i agree with everybody suggestion wise, i'd like to add to those suggestions, for a Scout Mk II

where the motherboard tray is, a lot of scouts have made a cut for the 24pin atx cable to come through to make things tidier, i'd love to see that in official production, it'd make life so much easier

a secondary removable 140/120mm fan mount option for the 5 & 1/4 inch drive bays, i know there's a hdd cage accessory for the 5 &1/4 inch bays, but a fan mount option in official production for the scout would be my cup of tea

a larger psu fan grill on the bottom of the case, to allow for larger psu's such as mine that have a 140mm fan inside them, i'm already considering cutting the grill out to be larger on the bottom of my scout, i don't think my psu is getting as much air as it would if the fan grill down there was larger

that's my hit list

  1. It needs to be a wee bit taller and keep the same design but allow for a 240 rad at the top


  2. Wider to offset the length increase.

  3. we need more room for more that 10 and 1/2 inch video cards.. We have found that most people that buy the enormous video cards are not Scout buyers. they usually go to a bigger case but at least another inch clearance for video cards.

  4. Less hard Drive bays on bottom to make room for a 240 rad at the bottom or at least a nice fat 120 rad.

  5. More room behind the motherboard try. Closing a scout after a build takes 4 men and a Monkey to close it.

  6. Oh did I say ... keep the same design.

  7. Don't mess with the design .. just make it a little bigger.

  8. USB 3 Plugs

  9. And a more fan accesories points or a junction rail on the back for adding fans and lights.

  10. Removable conduit for main board psu wire.

  11. If you make it Fatter could you get a 180 x 180 fan on the top

  12. And one place somewhere in the box for a small Res to mount

  13. Kill the fins on the side of the acylic Panel. They hum and cause sound when 120 fans are on high.

  14. Keep the Tinted glass

  15. Ohh did I say .. Keep the Scout Design in tacked.. Just a little bigger..fatter and longer.. Maybe 2 on height .... 1 on depth ... and 1 on length.

  16. Oh. those tool less PCI card clamps that look like clamps but are not really clamps.. We usually put really nice finger tight case screws and not use the Tool less because it is flimsy and it cheapens the entire case. This is Cooler Master and we don't make crap.

  17. The top to me looks great I love the jerry can look. I would not deviate from that.


Thank you sir so much for giving us credit for some of the Design elements of the Trooper.. some of us could just Hug the Stuffin out of you for saying that.



Thanks

Dad and I

I love look and feel of this case as it is. I don't know how practical widening or lengthening this baby would be but it would be nice Practical changes might include....

1. Better fan control.

2. Modular or removable drive bay. (so we don't have to cut up this beauty so much )

3. Power cable stowage or false floor. (the guys here have come up with practical creative ways to do that)

4. Better looking bullseye or no obstruction at all in front. Everybody has been cutting that ugly thing out. And, it doesn't line up with the fan, which looks weird if you have a bright LED fan like an Apollish Enermax.

5. Yes! Yes! Yes! Do something about the fins on the side window, please The tinted window is beautiful, though an option like a Sniper styled mesh might be interesting in a Special Edition or upgrade.

I love the mesh idea, I might have to steel that idea. Dust won't be a problem with the way I have my fans setup. I only have one exhausting out, and 3 as intake.

Sup Dteg!

yeah but dropping another TF3 in there would require a new motherboard

so that will be a while off...but now at least it will fit! well it fits in the scout but just barely as we both know

the case i had before my scout had a mesh window, i agree on it being better for airflow, but i had a few cons that seriously made me end up hating it, i got more dust inside the case, and i could hear stuff in there a LOT more, when i moved everything over to the scout my ears noticed a massive amount of improvement in the noise

I have worked with the HAF 912 and recognize a lot of the traits in the Enforcer, or as we like to call it Uncle Fugly. Ok, I made up the Fugly part, it's just Uncle Ugly. If it didn't have a door I would buy for sure. Other than that one thing I think it has very good things going for it.

As for the Trooper, I think it's a home run. I believe when people get their hands on it, it's legend will grow to enormous stature. We gotta get our hands on it first!
Thank you for the welcome. We saw the Enforcer as a good way to provide the high level features in our own design. Unfortunately as you mentioned, there was too much "Cooler Master" in Enforcer, and not enough CM Storm. Even so, it is still the best value in its class for features for the dollar.

The only thing I see that could be a problem with it is the length of the case. I have a good sized desk but the Trooper is about 1/2" too long and will not fit
Okay, so Scout 2 should be longer and a little wider. Thanks for the tip.

Just like Linkin93, i would like to see a Storm Scout v2.0. Here are some bullet points
  • It would need to have a decent handle (not like the Trooper), well it is a LAN case
  • The slits on the side panel have to go because of the noise that is made when you put a fan on the window. (i made my own window)
  • Maybe a couple of inches wider so you can fit larger graphics cards in the case.
  • Rubber grommets like the one on the HAF X in a few places like under the motherboard, for the PSU cables and next to the 24pin socket on the motherboard.
  • It would be nice to have 5 5.25 drive bays again.
  • Maybe an inch or two above the motherboard for a 240 Rad
  • Personally i would like removable hard drive PCB's on the back of the HDD caddy, but instead of hard drives being in enclosures they will be on rails. So when you want to take a hard drive out you dont need to disconnect any wire or take the hard drive out of the enclosure all you have to do is take the two rails off the hard drive.

Good list, all of those are already on the works. 5 x 5.25" drive bays, would make the chassis even bigger than the HAF 922? Hotswap PCB are expensive and tricky. It could be possible.

Don't kill the puppy, the chassis will be longer and wider if we support 2 x 120mm. What kind of white? White as in wedding dress, or some kind of shiny white.

Scout has a good balance of features. Too many might raise the price pretty high. A fan mount inside the Scout 2 would be different.

Removable drive bays may be a good idea, the false floor its also possible, but the Scout may be too small. Andthe bullseye thing in the front is used to reinforce the front mesh so it wont be dented in shipping. Window definately will be changed.

I want to see a Revision of the Scout...

Keep it PRECISELY as it is...

Except add holes in the rear for Water Cooling setups; for those who want to run tubes to external WC components! Some have rear mounted Radiators attached to the outside rear of the case, for example.

So add a couple holes on the back of the case for tubing; and after that.

Provide an optional CLEAR side window, as opposed to the default Tinted one...

Then if possible, add about half an inch in length to the case for those of us wanting better Video Cards! I had to CUT my HDD Cage to get a Reference Radeon HD6950 to fit inside my Scout because the Card itself was precisely 2mm too long to clear it.

Then, the current Storm Scout would be absolutely PERFECT!
