Testing:

Testing the CM Storm Scout 2 required pushing my hardware to heat things up! Testing involved recording temperatures for the CPU, GPU, chipset, hard drives, and overall system during idle and load phases. Recently, OCC upgraded to the ForceGT 240GB SSD from Corsair and has removed the HDD temps from case reviews. Thus, HDTune is no longer a part of the case benchmarking process.

Load was simulated by running Prime95’s small FFTs along with 3Dmark Vantage looping for one hour. The maximum temperatures were recorded using HW Monitor. It is important to note that each case is tested from its factory setup, including location of fans, unless otherwise noted.

The temperatures were about average within the large listing of tested cases, which I always find as a positive. Too high on the chart and I'll complain; otherwise, things aren't on fire, so that's good. The rear fan really seems to help push air through the CPU cooler and really keeps the temperatures low under load. The CPU load graph was one of the most impressive in the ranks. I'm really pleased with this. Several more fans in this case and you'll be good to go. Considering the savings on the cost of the case, you ought to have enough left in the budget for a couple.
