CM Scout Sniper VS CM Storm Scout - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
im not looking for price as an option but i dont want to spend over 150$ i want it to look good at a LAN party when i go to them, and good cable managment.

but if i get the scout i plan on adding the fans to the case side so will the cards still fit?

The Scout is perfect for LAN parties. THe handles on the top work make for ez carrying. It will fit 2 5770's easily, however it might be a little bit tight if you put side fans on it.

TBH you dont even need the side fans for the case. The stock fans provide a good amount of airflow as is.

The Sniper also has handles on the top but it is bigger and heavier. I personally wouldn't want to lug the sniper around much.

Most of you say that the cooling is the same and the cable management in both are good, but with the stock fans which case is quieter and which cools better.

I'd like to know and maybe the OP might need to know this as well as part of the decision.

One downfall I see in the Scout is the graphic card length limit without (modding) of taking out the hard drive cage.

This. Except personally, I would take the Scout over the Sniper any day. Otherwise the K-62 to me is the superior case to both.

Get two GTX 460s with the Scout.

OP, it's an opinion question, not a fact based one. Get which one you will like more. It's that simple.
Ahh!

I've a Sniper. Although never worked with the Scout i must say the sniper has a good airflow... space... and with some work you can hide the cables just fine ( i did a small cut on my motherboard tray though. )

You can use large CPU coolers... or get 2 x 240mm rads and 1 x 120 rads inside it ( 1 top, 1 front and 120 on the rear fan... )

Regards
Pedro

I don't really see any advantages for the scout other than size and price. The Sniper is the same as an HAF 922 inside, and has excellent airflow and cable management.
