Just swapped cases from a Thermaltake Soprano to the CM Storm scout today. I plan on using the Soprano as a Phenom II X6 Build case.

The Scout is a great case! I also changed from a Dark Knight push-pull cooler to a H50 Push pull setup and seeing great results. This case will be my platform for a I7 970 Hexacore build in late fall.

I've opened the locks, but the pieces refuse to budge. The Storm Scout manual says to lift it up towards the sky but there's no grip or way to hold the pieces. I'm so lost

Apply some preasure towards the metal piece and sort of drag it towards you, it is stuck with some force but it's not that hard too get them out

Put your fingers on the outside of the Cover and push up the top with your fingers. Thats how I Groove.

If someone wouldn't mind fielding a few general questions-

I'm looking to put together a cheapish upgrade to my ancient machine and while poking around on newegg I noticed that the Scout was on sale for $80 with free shipping. Although It wouldn't have been in the budget at the normal $120, it may now be a viable option. I'm concerned after reading some reviews that there could be issues with the front ports and fan wiring and I may be putting my other components at risk if I'm not willing to test every connection and replace a few fans prior to settling into normal use. I'll be running 2 hard drives and 1 optical at the moment and all my other components should fit (no massive video cards or anything) so perhaps if I can anticipate issues with the Scout someone would be so kind as to suggest a reasonably priced alternative of similar size. Any help would be appreciated (and sorry if I missed some obvious answers, 600+ pages is a lot to look through).
