This is all fixed, improved on in Scout 2. Everything on this list is implemented.

I would have like to see a 4th 3.5 inch drive bay for a small backplane to put (2) 2.5" removable storage drives for added portable storage. I don't really care for ssd or hdd drive cages. You can just stick ssds on the side so it's really not a problem where to put it. I hate to see a bottom 5" convertible to 2.5" drive bay. Cooler Master seems to find this convertible drive bays cool.

One of the biggest problem with the original Scout is the cable management. I hate to see another gigantic hole at the bottom. Back exhaust fan grill should only have 1 size. This idea of being able to use a smaller 100 mm fan as exhausted fan on the back is not cool at all. Nobody likes to use a 100 mm fan. Use a standard 120 mm.

I know it's impossible to sell a case without a drive cage but at least it should be totally removable for added option. Keep those holes in the case to a minimum. In the original Scout, there's so many holes that shouldn't have to be there. Cooler Master should put some emphasis on aesthetics especially with regards to fan grills. Corsair seems better with fan grill design.

At this stage, it's late to do any revisions. The Scout II is all packed up ready for shipment but still I would have like those I've like to see changed in the original Scout in the new Scout.

Sorry we can't release the exact specifications until September. The pictures you saw were the preproduction, which means the materials and such weren't final. The overall design would be maintained and we are very confident that it is a modern, unique step forward not only for the Scout II but also the entire Storm line. We have changed almost everything that Scout owners complained about, and everything good about the Scout 1 we didn't change.

Is Sept just the NDA or is that the release date? I would like to update the title with any sold date that I can.
I know you can't make everyone happy with one case, but I think CM will make many people happy with this case. I'm still hoping I can shoe horn a rad in there some what easy with out modding the front, lol.

With the Scout 2 its a different body than the Scout 1. This means you won't be able to interchange any parts.

I'm really growing fond of the Scout and I personally like how everything is ''crammed'' (oh, and it took me a few days to notice the Scout logo on the bottom of the front panel, love the little detail).
I still need to get my Noctua NH-D14 in and replace the stock fans which seem to weak for me.
