Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

CM Storm is a brand from Cooler Master targeted to high-end gamers and today we are going to take a look at their latest mid-tower case, Scout, which features an impeccable paint job and a sturdy top handle to make it easier to carry your PC around.

This case does not have a front door, as you can see in Figure 3. This unit has five 5.25” external bays, all using meshed covers featuring dust filters. This is great to improve the case internal airflow. Scout has a 140 mm fan with red LEDs on its front. What is really cool about this case is that it provides an on/off switch for the LEDs from the front and rear fans. All fans use a standard peripheral power plug, i.e., they are connected directly to the power supply, so no speed monitoring is provided. Cooler Master doesn’t say anything about the fan rotational speed.

The front panel can be easily removed from the case: just pull it. No need to screw or to press any internal latch. Therefore the access to the dust filters is very easy.
