WHAT WE LIKED:

Great Versatility, Good air flow with the option of 9 x 120mm fans, Good Portability
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Only one fan provided, might need an 8pin CPU extension cable, internal spacing might pose a few minor problems with some water-cooling units

Package

Here is the package of the Cooler Master SM Storm Scout II. Cooler Master always pleases us with the full colored art on its packages. it doesn’t come as a surprise that Cooler Master does not cut any cost when it comes to their products.  

Moving around to the rear, Cooler Master does a good job of pointing out the primary features of its case. This is great “at a glance information” found in multiple languages.

Turning to the contents inside of the box, we find the instruction manual with the specifications of the chassis. We also see the screws and zip ties we normally find, as well as the hard drive installation hardware.

Taking a closer look at this hard tray, we can see that it was designed for those who will be using an SSD or 2.5″ hard drive. This piece of hardware made things quite a bit easier to install and as we move deeper into this review it will become more clear why that is.

Inside of the chassis we also found our assortment of cables for the I/O front panel. We have here our USB 3.0 adpater, USB 2.0, AC97/HD Audio port and our front power/reset button cables with the LED front power and HD ports.

 Lets take a closer look at the exterior design of the CM Storm Scout II
