As expected the Scout 2 comes in a box much like the original. The front of the box has a large picture of the case with an army scout in the background. Unlike normal Cooler Master packaging with the purple and white theme, Storm products have the red, white, and black theme. Around back there are three pictures of the Scout 2 from different angles giving you full view of the case including inside to give you an idea of what to expect. Each picture has a few lines going to specific features with short explanations telling you about them. There is also a full specification listing on the side of the packaging to help you find out how much clearance there is for VGA as well as CPU heatsinks, or if you are trying to figure out if the case will fit under your desk.

Inside the Scout 2 is protected from scratches by being wrapped in a plastic bag and then from shipping damage with the normal foam padding on each end. As you can see from our photo’s UPS managed to dent each side of the Scout 2’s box during shipping, but the case itself came to us in perfect condition.

Inside of the case, Cooler Master did something a little different this time around for all of the case’s accessories. Rather than tie down the box inside of the case. They actually made the accessory box the same width of a hard drive and put the hard drive sliders on the side to keep it secure during shipping. Inside the box you have the rest of the hard drive sliders for the cases 7 hard drive bays. Along with that you have all of the motherboard standoffs and (just like the original) you have all black screws to match the look of the case. They have also included more than enough wire ties for getting your wire management perfect.

I love the original and if i feel the itch to upgrade in the future, this looks like a really good option for me. the HANDLE is amazing allowing me to carry my entire PC in one trip to and from LAN parties! Plus the case is small and compact and since they moved the two window fans to the bottom of the sid panel, you'll be able to use them both. Currently they are in a vertical line causing the top slot to be in direct competition for space with any standard video card.
Good review! Hope i win one at the next LAN :-P
