Thanks for the link, I'll keep them in mind.

As of right now, I have ordered the big kit from FrozenCPU that I linked above. It's a HUGE sleeving kit with everything you could possibly need apart from wire-strippers and solder, both of which I have already.

CM Storm Mouse Final Thoughts
For years, I have searched for a gaming mouse I could really sink my teeth into. It's not that I do a lot of gaming, I just haven't been able to find a mouse that really fits my mold and meets my needs as a gamer. In fact, I have been using a standard Microsoft 5 button IR mouse for many years, having failed to find a comparable upgrade. Those days are over. I have met my match. The CM Storm Sentinel Advance Laser Gaming Mouse has everything I yearn for in a proper gaming accessory. It also has many things I would have never thought of. The Sentinel Advance has 8 programmable buttons, which is plenty for my needs. It also boasts an complex GUI that takes my control of the mouse to the next level. The color schemes on the Sentinel Advance are just down right cool, and with the weights in the bottom, I can customize it pretty much any way I like. The battle pad adds to the fun, giving enhanced precision and a broad playing surface.

I did have a few complaints about the mouse, and I will air those grievances here. I would have liked the 5th mouse button to be on the right side of the mouse, instead of right next to the 4th button. Also, the scroll wheel button on the Sentinel Advance requires quite a lot to actually depress it. It needs to be a little easier to click. It would also be nice to have an off mode for the LED color scheme.

Sentinel Advance Conclusion
The CM Storm Sentinel Advance Gaming Mouse arrived in pretty impressive packaging. The box shows off the ergonomic design of the mouse and details some of the more prominent features. While the Sentinel Advance is presented very well, there is nothing over-the-top about the packaging that really makes it stand out from other gaming mice.

The Sentinel Advance Laser Gaming Mouse just looks cool. There really isn't another word for it. The design looks like a standard gaming mouse and the even the lighting is vaguely familiar, but the customizable color scheme allowing you to choose two different colors for the top and front of the mouse, the rapid fire LED effects, and the OLED display for the DPI settings and your personalized logo just puts the Sentinel Advance far above the standard gaming mouse as far as appearance is concerned.

CM Storm really thought about durability when making the Sentinel Advance Gaming Mouse. One of their key selling points is the fact that it is a driverless mouse and can be taken anywhere. Since mobility is such a feature, durability has to match. The cord for the Sentinel Advance is protected by nylon on top of plastic, making it much less likely to kink, bend, tear, or otherwise. The shell is tough as well. The occasional fall won't hurt the Sentinel Advance Gaming Mouse much.

If the appearance of the Sentinel Advance is outstanding, the functionality of this gaming mouse really takes the cake. The 8 programmable buttons would make it a formidable mouse alone, but the GUI that comes with the Sentinel Advance really sets the bar for gaming mouse functionality. With 5 profiles, DPI settings up to 5600 (able to be set individually by X and Y axis), keyboard functions, multi-media functions, and macros to let you program the mouse any way you want, there really is nothing on the market that touches the functionality of the CM Storm Sentinel Advance Laser Gaming Mouse right now.

As of the date this article was published, CM Storm has not yet released pricing information for the Sentinel Advance Laser Gaming Mouse. With all that this mouse brings to the table, it will undoubtedly fall on the more expensive side of gaming mice. This is to be expected, and even so, the Sentinel Advance will be well worth the cost. We will have to see how CM Storm prices the mouse to get a good estimate of its value.

Pros:+ 8 Programmable Buttons
+ Multi-Color LED Customizations
+ OLED Display for DPI and Personal Logo
+ Customizable Weight from 139 to 161.5 grams
+ Up to 5 Different Profiles
+ Macro Editor for Complete Control of Functions
+ Keyboard and Multi-Media Built-In Functions
+ 64kb Memory Bank for Driverless Use

Cons:
- Scroll Wheel button is too hard to push
- 4th and 5th buttons are too close together
- LED lights on top and front can't be turned off

Ratings:
•Presentation: 8.00
•Appearance: 9.50
•Construction: 8.50
•Functionality: 10.00
•Value: ???
Final Score: 9.0 out of 10.

I wish they would pump out more storm series cases. Maybe a full tower. I, sadly, am getting bored of this case. When I first got into computers I just cared about performance. I'm to the point where I just love building computers. I wish I didn't live in Hawaii just because it's waaaay too hard for me to sell computers here. I wish I could sell this one for a very slight profit and make a new one. I would get to experience different parts and build combinations.

This is the best case I've worked with...but I miss my HAF .

I share your love, lucky for me I'm known amongst friends and family for being a bit of an "enthusiast" and I often find myself upgrading and such for people. Unfortunately they are all low end users and I never really get to work in flashy gaming cases and the like. Its all stock cooling and budget GPU cards Still fun but working on a plain black box just doesn't feel as satisfying.

I do the same for my family and friends. I've only had to build a gaming rig once. I'm building a HTPC for my friend right now. Just waiting on amazon to ship the CPU. I'd much prefer doing an amazing build with great cable management than just some budget OEM replacement comp.

I'm terrible with cable management! I have a hate/hate relationship with wires... but I found it quite easy to hide my crimes in the scout!

and I second the thanks for tips and pictures, I found this thread very useful running upto the purchase and build of my scout

Thanks for that link Enigma - I just grabbed some black sleeving from them to help with my cable management. I'm scared to turn my case around currently
