CM Storm Scout Micro-ATX Case

As a micro-ATX factor, the CM Storm Scout is small enough to carry around yet big enough to fit a number of hard drives plus your big gaming graphics. With its reinforced carrying handles the Scout is designed with mobility in mind.

And since this case will see a lot of LANs the groundbreaking StormGuard™ security system is built in to safeguard your gaming peripherals. StormGuard prohibits a snatch and run hit on your keyboard, mouse or headphones. Anyone trying it will get a real surprise 🙂 

The low price of R859 belies the aggressive design of the Scout which, CM Storm says, is inspired by military weapons. “Menacing all black interior and window side panel for striking visuals.” “Fierce.”

CM Storm says the side window of the Scout “supports twin 120mm fans. It also sports a dark black automotive tinting.  To clean or replace your side panel, simply use the easy push pin retainers.  With a gentle push on the pins, your side window can be removed or replaced easily.”
