Cooler Master Scout 2 reviewed - Rear and bottom

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

The Scout 2 has 7+1 expansion slots on the rear panel. The eight one has a special cover called the Storm Guard, and it’s great protection against those who think about stealing your mouse or keyboard. The top of the panel has two watercooling holes, often used to route cables. Hier is housed a 120mm fan, the only one that comes stocked with the Scout 2.

The expansion slots are sealed, which does indeed suggest military style design. Almost all the cases we’ve tested lately came with mesh covers for improved airflow.

There is a dust filter placed underneath the PSU spot, but although it can be removed without opening the case, it’s difficult to take out. Again, we had to lift the case since 1cm is not enough room to squeeze in our fingers. We had the same problem with CM Storm Trooper.

The Scout 2 is stable on its feet, which may be a bit on the short side. The used rubber prevents vibration and sliding.

The bottom panel has an exhaust that can be used for 120mm fans.
