CM Storm Scout II Chassis Review

This mid tower chassis has plenty of room inside for components. In fact this chassis can actually fit the largest graphics cards (although you will have to remove the top HDD cage).  There are 7 x 3.5″ bays, and one can be converted to fit 2 x 2.5″ drives.

There are 3 x 5.25″ bays with a tool-less installation mechanism, which is simple and effective.

The back of the chassis features an LED lit fan (a nice red), and 7 PCI expansion slots.

At the bottom of the chassis you can install an extra 120mm fan, although the company haven’t even included a dust filter here.

The top of the chassis can fit 2 x 120mm fans, which have a thin dust mesh already fitted. This allows for improvements to be made in terms of thermal performance when compared to the out-of-the-box performance.

On the other side of the chassis we can see the cable routing holes, and the large CPU cut-out, which allows easy access to the CPU cooler backplate.

Taking the front bezel off the chassis, we can see that you can fit a further 2 x 120mm fans to the front of the chassis or a single 140 mm fan. The fan mountings are also set back quite a bit giving around 4.5cm of clearance. This is enough for a watercooling radiator.

We removed the top cover. This allows the user to gain access to the top of the chassis to install up to 2 x 120mm fans.
