I would like to thank CaseKing.de for supplying the review sample.
CaseKing is one of the few companies out there, which will not just sell anything. They only offer hardware that performs well and is of high quality. The shop carries quite a few exclusive parts and devices from all around the world and it is also the official distributor for a long list of well known manufacturers. Their assortment has grown substantially in recent years, while great service and support is still a very important part of the shop philosophy. The website may be in German, but due to great demand, an English version is in the works.
CaseKing has kindly sent us one of the newest offerings from Cooler Master this time around. The Scout is the second case to be part of the CM Storm brand. This series has their own website and Cooler Master is aiming the products at the avid gamer. These parts offer excellent build quality, unique looks and come packed with features for the enthusiast. It should be interesting to see if Cooler Master manages to pack as much quality and innovation into a case with a price tag just above $100 US Dollars.
