Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2: A Worthy Successor?

Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2: A Worthy Successor?

Cooler Master is a company that needs no introduction by now. Its plethora of products run the gamut from PSUs with 80 Plus Platinum certifications to laptop devices and tablet accessories. Despite the risk of spreading itself too thin, the company, in our opinion, still manages to churn PC chassis of sound build with features that are able to meet the requirements of their targeted market segment. From the Cooler Master Silencio 550 to the Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus recently and many more from our previous encounters, our experience with their casings underscore the company's trait to improve and not rest on their laurels of success as these chassis proved to be palpable attempts by Cooler Master to improve upon their predecessors.

In the same line, the CM Storm Scout 2 is touted as the successor to the CM Storm Scout, which we did not have the opportunity to review earlier. Both mid-tower casings hail from the CM Storm series that is targeted squarely at the PC gaming community. Compared to the earlier Scout model, the newer CM Scout 2 is available in two colors; midnight black and gunmetal gray and we have the latter in our labs. Read on to uncover more differences that will distinguish the CM Storm Scout 2 as we ascertain its worth as a successor.
