Cooler Master why do you have to make such nice things tongue.gif I already upgraded to a HAF 912 Plus a while ago and now I'm in love with the Scout 2! It would be so much better for water cooling and it looks way more beastly than the 912 IMO. So many computer upgrades that I don't have the money for lol tongue.gif

Hows the cooling performance and is it a quiet case? Thanks alot if anyone can give a quick answer smile.gif Fyi ill the build will be as follows;

CPU-Intel-S1155 Corei5 QuadCore 3570K 3.4GHz
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 8GB Kit (2x4GB) 1600
PSU-ATX-High-end CoolerMaster GX-Lite ATX V2.3 700W 86%-Efficiency

Yes, the Scout II has 1 red LED fan in the back. The original Scout came with 2 fans, a 120mm and a 140mm, but it seems like they're not including the 140mm anymore. The LEDs in the fan are controlled by a button on the case as well.

I can't say from experience as I have an original Scout, but the cases are pretty quiet, so I can't imagine why the new one wouldn't be.

If you're looking for additional fans for your case, here are the ones I picked up:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103060

I have 2 of these fans in the front of my case and I like them. Good airflow, silent, and the LEDs are not overly bright either.

This case comes with one LED fan in the back top. The fan has a switch for the LEDs and a second extention to the light switch that other LEDs can be wired to. There is room for 2 120mm fans (or 1 140mm) inthe front panel, 2 120mm fans under the window, and 2 120mm fans out the top, and one more on the bottom in front of the PS.
I would say there is ample cooling options but with up to 8 fans (not including PS or CPU) I would not call it a "quiet" case.
It seems to be a quality case with nice space and decent quality throughout.
post #27036 of 28613
The Scout II only comes with the rear fan because of input from users in this forum. Most original scout owners admitted to changing most of the included fans anyways, so that's why they decided to only include the 1 fan in the rear. As mmniac said, if you load this case to the max with fans its not going to be a "quiet" case. But when fully loaded out your probably looking for pretty good cooling and noise is to be expected.
post #27037 of 28613
Ok thanks for the replies smile.gif ill take it into consideration of buying more fans
post #27038 of 28613
You should also remember that even if you do load it up with fans, the noise level depends on both the fans and the speeds you run them at. You could install as many fans as possible and just hook them all up to a fan controller to lower the speeds. It really depends on your preference. You can either go for performance, low noise, or a balance between the two.

Hello !

Just to show you my Scout II in progress wink.gif




post #27040 of 28613
I just received a Scout II for my new build and I'm also wondering about placement and how many fans to go with. I haven't decided on a motherboard yet, but I am going with an Intel Core i7-3770K. I doubt I will ever get into overclocking, but I do plan to install an aftermarket CPU cooler. I have an EVGA GeForce GTX 660Ti in my current rig that will go into the new one.

I've only built one system before and the case had fans already so any suggestions would be very appreciated biggrin.gif
