Scout 2 looks nice though, just curious how much the price is going to be. Initial reaction is thumb.gif to seeing them dropping down to three 5.25 bays to accommodate for a longer GPU, but I guess we'll see. Some may not like only having 3 bays...

Scout 2 should have at least a 3 inch drive bay aside from the (3) 5.25 inch drive bays. It should only be a 3 inch drive bay, not a 5.25 inch drive bay convertable to 3 inch drive bay like that of the first Scout.

Though lots of pc enthusiasts nowadays prefer to use the least amount of drive bays (even dropping the use of optical drive), there's still people out there that likes to have a drive bay water cooling reservoir, a touch screen fan controller & an optical drive on their set up (particularly me). It would also cool to have a 3 inch drive bay for the sound card controller such as those sound controllers for the Creative Soundblaster Fatal1ty series.

I believe there are only 3 bays for a couple reasons, and remember no case will make everyone 100% happy and the first Scout has its down sides. We just know the work arounds to make it one of the best cases ever made.

1. I'm willing to bet over 99% of the Scouts on here have used 3 or less bays.
2. This allows room for a 200mm or 2 120/140 mm fans up front for better air flow
3. Makes room for a 240 rad up front with little to no modding
4. Helps keep the price down

Because of the size of the Scout, if you're going hardcore water cooling on the case you can only go in the external route. The Scout is no Dander Den:). From what I can tell based on the reply of a Cooler Master rep, this Scout 2 has a totally different chassis frame. Gone is the fabrication process that is shared on not use 1 kind of case. Looking closely at the new case, Cooler Master could have added at least a 3 inch drive bay or even 5.25 inch drive bay (though I prefer the 3 inch) & still won't have a problem with longer video cards. Similar with the original Scout, if Cooler Master only put a much smaller 3 inch bay (without having to convert a 5th 5.25 inch drive bay into a 3 inch drive bay) then the problem with long video cards won't exist. But the chassis in the original Scout shared the same kind of chassis as some other mid tower case by Cooler Master. There's a big hole at the top left of the front intake fan that served no purpose at all that you can tell probably that that hole probably there cuz another case with the same chassis used it for something else.

I just hope that this time Cooler Master will put a bet of emphasis on wire management on Scout 2 as well as the motherboard tray hole that's totally misaligned that of the original Scout. The CPU bracket orientation on newer Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge & later CPU is not close at the center.

Cooler Master should also take off of this idea that fans of multiple sizes can be installed on each fan intake or output holes. Like in the case of the original Scout where you can put either a 120 mm, 100 mm or an 80 mm fan on the rear or a 120 mm or 140 mm on top & in front. I never saw one that use an 80 mm fan on the back of the original Scout. So Cooler Master it's not a cool thing to have. Just look at the top of the CM Storm Enforcer case & you'll see the multiple fan screw holes which make it look ugly. Go & look closely into how Corsair case manufacturer put a big emphasis on fan hole design. The original Scout front fan hole is so misaligned & was having hard time modding it to make the front intake fan orientation look centered.

Right now, I still think the original Scout looks cooler than Scout 2.

Well guys, i bit the bullet and ordered...

The scout is going Ivy Bridge! biggrin.gif

On the way is:

I5 3570K
Sabertooth Z77
60GB Corsair Force SSD
8GB Vengeance White LP
Coolermaster Hyper 612S

Cannot wait. I'm going to also start a build log soon, because i think its time to start some modification of the old scout, Everything is looking a bit cramped right now so a tidy up of the design is in order thumb.gif

Anyway, parts will arrive monday, so first update will be then. Have to work on selling my Phenom II/sabertooth combo now!

It's zip tied on the right side to the hard drive bay and on the left it sits on top of the power supply wires but it stays put nice and sturdy in there. It also manages to stay perfectly level and looks like it's floating.

Wow, bold, new look. Probably will me seeing more of this modern design later on this year as Corsair & some other case makers will do their best as well.

The era of square, rectangular & angled case is coming to an end.
