Description

CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced is the upgraded edition of Scout 2. It supports up to 9 fans, including two pre-installed 120mm red LED fans in the front for optimized cooling. It features improved steel reinforced carrying handles, bolted to the core structure. The top console has been upgraded to USB 3.0 for high power charging and lightning fast file transfers, and can be hidden and protected from dusty battlefields, friendly fire and melee attacks behind a slide cover. The 1st HDD cage can be removed, to support monster VGAs like the NVIDIA GTX 690 and AMD HD 7990, turning it into a powerful Battlestation

Pros...

This is one stunning looking gaming case. Overall design is fantastic with a great feature set. Carrying handles not only look good but are also very practical, great amount of storage options, slide able cover over the top IO. Build quality is top class

Cons...

The addition of a built in fan controller would be the icing on the cake as well as a white edition.
