Keep the space heater, it's winter. Then when you do an upgrade to your hardware you won't have to get a friend to help put your side panel on
I have my Scout 2 up and running with all my parts from my Trooper. I must say it's a joy to work with, easy, really easy cable management. Endless cooling options with the fans and great air flow. It looks way better in person than in the pics. Build quality is nicer than the first Scout. About the only real bad thing I can say about it is no 3.5" adapter for a card reader and it almost seems as if CM made it to were you would have to mod it for watercooling on purpose, but they are pretty much the same mods you would have to do to the first Scout but easier. The first Scout I'd rate to if it was new today I would give it a 8/10 if you don't need USB 3.0, if you need it/want it 7/10. It's an aging case compared to newer cases of today. The Scout 2 I give it a 9/10, if it came with a card reader I think I would give it a 9.5/10.
