As you can see, the front of the case features five exposed 5.25" drive bays, and one exposed 3.5" drive bay. At the very top are the ports of the case, and a convenient handle to assist in easy transportation. The back of the case has seven expansion slots, with one having a special curve design to allow wires to be fed through. Located above the expansion slots is where the I/O shield would go, and a 120mm fan. At the very bottom is where the power supply would be installed. The left side of the case features a clear side panel with a large vent to the left of the side panel.
On top of the case is where the most appreciation might lie. Located on the top of the Cooler Master Scout is handle bar to help ease transportation of the case and its components. Unlike most low quality LAN cases with a handle bar, the Scout excels in this area, using a reinforced plastic material that makes it a strong and sturdy handle. The bottom of the case has a large vent area where the power supply would be installed. There is a surplus in connectivity to the front of the case, including three USB 2.0 ports, standard eSATA connectivity, a microphone and headphone jack, power and reset buttons, HDD LED and power LED, as well as an on/off LED switch for the front 140mm fan. Located at the end of the case is a 120mm fan.
