the TG version of the case does have an on/off switch for the case lights, i think holding it down turns it on or off and a quick push cycles through like 10 colors.. but if you like Asus motherboards get one with Aura. its software that lets you sync the board, case, ram, and up to 2 other rgb headers. (if you go with Asus graphics cards, you can also sync those as well if they have RGB).

i ended up going with g skill rgb 3200 ram, and i added a phanteks led kit which comes with 2 extra strips that run off of the cases rgb header. meaning i still have 1 rgb header on my board. i put one strip behind the back panel and one along the bottom of the side panel.

i do agree about the scary-ness of tempered glass. i feel pretty scared anytime i have to remove the panel to open it up. i like the new smaller version, its side panel swivel open. they will probably add that to the next revision of the atx version.

i wanted something a little more elegant and a little more grown up. something that would fit in an adults room. i was hesitate on the RGB, thought it might be too flashy. but i keep mine on a solid color and its just under being to bright/flashy in my opinion. the biggest complaint of the phanteks evolve is it is warmer then the storm scout 2. still testing fan configuration for the best airflow. i also wish it had a usb Type c in the front panel.

anyways. i still loved my storm scout 2, just wanted something new for my latest build.

A lot to consider, thanks. But if I ever did RGB, I would do like you, keep it on ONE color and use whatever options it has to cut it on or off from time to time. By the way are you talking about this? The one thing I like about the Mastercase over the Scout 2 is the same thing your case has, the feet. Beyond that, I'm getting the impression its awfully big, plus I'm not willing to give up front bay ports (for optical drives, 3.5 panel controllers, etc). I will admit I like the aesthetic of it, but for now I think I'll stick to the Scout 2. But I will research RGB a bit more so there's that. smile.gif

yeah i keep it purple, and everything turns off when my pc is off. you can set the lights on the motherboard only to stay on when the comp is off (or do other settings when the comp is off). the software has many options, but at the same time simple. 1 click on/off.

Yeah that is the exact case i have in the Anthracite color.

yeah, it seems a lot larger then the storm scout 2. i prpbably could have handled the size, but the 2 things i didnt like. it wasnt Aura compatible and the red outlines around the front. i wanted something neutral to not clash with my RGB.

i did have to give up my 5inch dvd drive bay. i do have a blu ray burner i use very seldom. i ended up buying this adapter. i can pull it out and use my burner whenever i need to. i ended up taping off the opening of the blu ray burner and spray painting the casing of it black (luckily i didnt ruin it, lol. i also added some small rubber feet i had that were for a dock i bought but never used. i wanted if had it out (on my desk), it would look less funky. i could have bought a 5 inch dvd enclosure, but they are like $50, bulky, and ugly.

good luck to your research and future build!
