Cooler Master Scout 2 reviewed

Review: Beats the old Scout in quality but not in price

It was about time the Scout, although a quality case at the time, got an overhaul. The case needed a USB 3.0 connector and there were some redesigns to ensure all cards fit inside. Let’s see whether the new Scout is a worthy successor.

The new Scout is available in two colors – Gunmetal Grey and Full Midnight Black. The left panel has a different window but both have been redesigned. Of course, the case comes with a handle that made the original famous.  

We’d like to thank Cooler Master Balkans, who’ve made sure we received the Scout 2 in Gunmetal Grey, our color of choice. Note that we took pictures in direct sunlight – light reflections depend on materials and our shots emphasize the contrast between metal and plastic.
