    I have a few questions regarding the CM Storm Scout (model #SGC-2000-KKN1-GP). If anyone is using this case, please let me know. Thank you.

    Well I try to stay away from Mid Tower cases, but this one caught my eye. How is the wire management in it? It looks good, but not great. Also, if you use the 2 bottom HDD bays, are they visible through the window still? I'm torn between this case and the Storm Series Trooper full tower. Hopefully your answers can help solve that tear.

    cable management isn't to bad but its not great either. It does have the kicked out panel so it gives you a lil more room for cables. With the hdd's, They're somewhat noticeable. You have a tinted window so your not going to see them clearly as they were sitting in front of you.

    The trooper is much bigger. better cable management and no widow to show hdd's Just vents that your not really going to see through.

    What do you mean by kicked out panel? As in there is room behind the motherboard tray for cables etc? I HATE the idea that you can see your HDDs. Looks like Trooper it is so far.

    The panel isn't flat. it has the same shape of the window but its bumped out to give you room for cables behind the motherboard area.

    One thing you can do to hide the drives is slide a piece of plexi, can get it in opaque colors, in the HD rails, it will hold itself in and hide those reallly well, I saw it done over on XS i think, and it looked good.
