    I'm not exactly satisfied with my CM 690 right now... I bought it because it had free shipping and the Storm Scout didn't, and I wanted the items when I got back from vacation. Right now it's the other way around so if I RMA it with Newegg along with the PSU (combo deal) I'll be eating a $18 restocking fee... the simple yet elegant aesthetics of the Storm Scout is sooo tempting. It's not going to be a high end system so both cases should be more than enough to cool it down when it's complete.

    :banghead::banghead::banghead: Why didn't I check the prices before opening the CM 690!!?! All in all it'll be $38 rather than $20 to go from the 690 to the Scout... take me to the light!

    Depends if you have the cash to Burn, Theres nothing wrong with the case and its a very solid build. cools well and plenty of room for everything you need. Its personal choice really.

    I'm gonna do it... I'm going to hate myself if the Scout comes and it isn't as sexy as pictures make it out to be cause I just blew $38 bucks, and I do not have that kind of money to just toss around but being the body of my system I'm making a one time exception.

    Watch out you can't cable manage the top CPU power very easily on the scout cause it has a lack of space on the top.

    The power supply is going to be bottom mounted, and it's modular.
