Default Cooler Master Storm Scout Mid-Tower

Cooler Master impressed us greatly with their first "Storm" chassis, the Sniper, and we're happy to report that their follow-up, the mid-tower Scout, is yet another winner. Like the Sniper, the Scout has features directly targeted towards LAN gamers, has great cooling abilities, runs quiet, and is set to be priced at an affordable $120 USD.

You might be thinking... "two CM chassis reviews in a row??", and don't worry, we're confused too. But due to us overlooking a certain embargo date, we decided it would be wise to get this article up after the other one

So, check out Bill's look here and discuss it here!

Oh boy... hopefully this is easy to fix.

Edit: Simple mistake, but a dumb one. Thanks guys

Hmm. If they were both the same price, I think I'd go with the Sniper tho.

And just wondering, how come you said that you gave it a 9/10 but there isn't one of those Techgage rating bar thing graphic? No big deal, but sometimes I just glance through articles and skip to the rating to see if I should read the whole thing or not. The graphic helps me do that faster.

Ugh, man. There WAS a rating graphic, but it looks like I wiped it out with that issue of overwriting it. Guess I didn't actually save that in there. I'll add it, thanks.

I agree though, I like the style of the Sniper better, but if I was a huge LAN gamer, the Scout is an amazing chassis.
