Cooler Master has been developing computer components for over 20 years, focusing on items such as CPU coolers, fans, and other cooling devices. Eventually, as with most companies, they diversified and have been making cases and other hardware for many years.

Today, we will be taking a look at Cooler Master's latest mid-tower case, the Scout 2; an update to the 3 year old Scout. This case includes many features found on the original Scout, including: multiple cooling options, tool-less drive installation, a fan LED on/off switch, and easy CPU cooler support bracket installation. The Cooler Master Scout 2 makes some changes to the overall design of the Scout, and expands the features to include more cooling options, internal USB 3.0 support, and a removable hard drive chassis for support of all graphics cards.
