CM Storm Scout Gaming Case
What differentiates a serious Gaming PC from the rest of the PCs hiding quietly under desktops? To me, it's all about graphics performance, but I know there are many who would disagree. They would say it's a combination of factors, including appearance and some extra functionality needed to survive the physical gaming environment. The first thing you notice about the CM Storm Scout Gaming Case is its appearance, particularly the swooping, integrated handle that graces the top surface. That's an obvious nod to the LAN Party setting, so CM Storm is apparently paying attention to the customer's needs there, but what about the rest of the case? The Scout has several other features that are aimed at the gaming market, as we'll see.
Cooler Master has created a new division called CM Storm to address the specific needs of gamers. By investing in a brand new business unit with dedicated resources that are focused on one specific market, they are clearly showing a major commitment. Their latest product, introduced at CEBIT in early March, is called Scout: The True Gaming Case, and is aimed at the mid-market enthusiast. It has everything needed for a gaming chassis and nothing more, so it does without a few bells and whistles that the top cases have.
Follow along with Benchmark Reviews and let's see if the Scout (SKU SGC-2000-KKN1-GP) has enough gaming DNA to survive the ruthless natural selection process that takes place in this very demanding marketplace.
