New Case In Mind, Need Suggestion!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
So i am on the market for a new case. I have been leaning towards the Cooler Master Storm Scout. On the other hand searching through all the possible cases is giving me a ridiculous headache lol. So, i figured i would turn to you guys for some suggestions. The CMSS is 89.99 shipped and i would like to stay at that or less.

Needs:

Mid/Full
Front 120+mm
Rear 120+mm
Top 120+mm
Painted Interior
Bottom PSU Mount
Cable Management Holes
CPU cutout on MB tray.

I dont think you will be able to find one for that price point that beats out the Storm Scout with your requirements. I looked at most of the usual places and couldnt find anything better at that price point. I have worked with that case before and its really easy to work with and maintain.

You would rate that as a better overall case than the CMSS?

$79.99 the Cooler Master Storm Scout case is on sale with free shipping.

There's also a Storm Scout club thread in this forum if you need to know more.

Here's the link to the Newegg promotions page, just scroll down a bit and is on the right.

You need to subscribe to them (NewEgg) if not already and then input the promotions code to get it for $79.99.

The 690 II Advanced is also a very nice case.

I would go for CM 690 II over Storm Scout personally. Also check out Antec One Hundred or NZXT Gamma if you want to spend a little less money in exchange for lesser cable mangement.

Same here I think that the 690 II has better cable management and more places to place fans for starters, then after that it's all up to each individuals taste.
