EXACTO-MUNDO!!

Cooler Master should just put our group on the payroll and we'll come up with enough ideas to take them to the next level of products.

If you're reading this CM Representative.. Seriously, ship us all your extra parts and pieces & we will turn nothing into total efficiency! & Keep up the good work!

Lol, to true.
They should at least have a rep post here once in a while. We are a great representation of the CM and Storm brands.
They must have people with their ears to the ground and those people have to have stumbled upon this thread every now and then, yet no motivation from them to continue with the brand loyalty

I have to warn you, I wrote this to be corny and silly, although there is truth in it. I also wrote it long on purpose. It gives a "professional" story feel to it. Consider this post more on the humorous side (When I'm really tired, almost anything makes me laugh).

If you tl;dr posts, then don't click on the spoiler.

Hello Storm Scout Club:

I have a small story to share with you.

I had been wanting to build an Intel system for some time now. I finally decided that this Summer into Fall, I would do that. I pretty much know what I needed to know as far as parts go. There was one thing, though, that I still had to decide on. After an excruciating week of looking at cases and pictures and imagining a build inside of it, I narrowed it down, posted here (and on another forum) and waited for the results.

I made a link here and had 4 to 8 different ideas. It kept interchanging a lot. I was most concerned with airflow and looks. People suggested the Cooler Master 690 II as an excellent choice. I thought it looked okay and had some nice features, but everyone and their mother had this case (The original model). I guess individuality was also what I was going for here. I needed people's opinions because it would help not influence my decision, but to tell me what is good and bad about the cases chosen. It didn't really work out as I had fully hoped.

From there, I got a lot of suggestions, but none really caught my attention. Other cases were mentioned despite me looking them over before. I looked them over again and tried to see what would suit me best. I kept leaning to one case, then another, then another. I read reviews that were less than stellar for one case and I rule that out. I even added more cases.

I knew I needed to make a decision soon. Just yesterday, I finally came to that decision. I went with the NZXT Tempest EVO. I like the looks, styling and interior (What is this a car?!). Overall I could work with it. But before I fully went with the EVO, I took one last look at Newegg. Looking through a very few select brands, one case caught my eye. To me, it looked like the epitome of awesome. I did research on it and even though pretty much darn near everyone on the planet has one, I didn't really worry about that. I knew I wanted this. It slightly went against the "individuality" that would make my case stand out a little, but it really wasn't what I was striving for.

Call it an impulse buy, if you will. I knew, though, what I was doing with this. I wound up buying this case ALONG with the Tempest EVO. The plan is to compare the two in person to see which case would go with my new build best. The other one can be put into storage or sold if I need the cash right then. I figure that either way I would be happy.

That particular case that caught my eye is the COOLER MASTER STORM SCOUT. I guess you can say it kind of jumped into contention at the last minute. I honestly never noticed it before. Even so, if it was one of the first cases I was researching, I'm very sure I wouldn't have bought it on the spot.

In any event, I am the proud owner of a Storm Scout. I am hoping it arrives in one piece (along with my Tempest EVO) and I shall take pictures (to post here) and even do an unboxing video. I am planning to video log my computer build.

I hope to be part of your prestigious club in the coming days. I have been lurking here in this thread for a time and have also learned a lot of things. There are many neat people in this sub-community of OCNers and I would love to take part as well. The Club is quite entertaining. Thank you.
Hey guys, I just bought a Storm Scout, I should have it by next week.

Hey guys, I just bought a Storm Scout, I should have it by next week.
Welcome.
Nice little intro post.
As to the cases, lets hope you choose the storm scout over the evo. At a quick glance the evo looks better for watercooling and big rads than the scout.

Just remember friends that the PSU partition was an original idea by one of our own long before the HAFX was being publicly talked about. I think CM does prowl our thread for ideas and all the other CM case threads here for ideas.

Cooler Master if you are indeed using our ideas for R/D how about a Storm Scout First Class with one more 5.25" drive bay taller for proper radiator installations and longer to accommodate the newest high end GPUs and a good locking expansion card system similar to the Lian-LI PCI-01 like I have modded into my Scout.

Then we'd have a near perfect case.

i agree. i would trade my case in for one of them in a second

and @Clee. i wouldn't mind getting paied for my project XD it would help buy parts! not expecting it to happen though

and sadly i need to put the reactor on hold for a couple weeks..... :'(
reason why. i broke my camera the other day in the move from the garage to the new work shop (fell off the fork lift where it was sitting and crashed into the concrete floor) AND i was informed by my parents that im getting flown out to Montana to visit my sister and her son Sam (the one from my work log) and i need a camera for that (im a photo nut with no camera ) so i decided i would suck it up and buy a good DSLR. so im going to get a Nikon D3000 in the next couple weeks as im flying out the weekend of July 4 and i need 500 more ish dollars for it which was most of my spending money for the case project/

Feet, as in, stand offs between the bottom of the case and the floor.

Thanks in advance!

***EDIT***

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ort=20a&page=1

I'm looking at that page, but I have a question..
Do any of these "after market feet" fit the Scout?



I'm using the feet in the top photo on my Scout.

How could I forget? 88EVGAFTW and seven9st surfer! So much respect for the custom modification!

Seriously, this little mod was ingenious to me. The simplest ideas are the hardest to come by & in addition to getting credit for their work, the false floor should become a standard for all cases! I think if any of our OCN members really wanted to, they could supply these and make a pretty penny (but I know that isn't the point of our motivation) although, there are some of us without the resources to create one for ourselves (like me).
