Default Cooler Master Scout 2 Camo Edition

Its been a crazy summer & fall , and has been a blast with my family and friends, but back into the garage i go for a few projects. First project is the New Cooler master Scout 2 case, Having a military name and theme on the box i am definitely going with a camo theme


The case has a very sleek design and the Handle on top is great for lan gaming

I like the window, but since i will be watercooling i will be removing the fan grills and making it bigger

planning on removing one or both hard drive cages to make room for teh water cooling

Time to break it all down


using the scout insignia on the side panel

Camo paracord just need in a few other builds this will be perfect.

One would think growing up hunting a fishing i would be able to paint camo that wasnt the case lol . It took me three tries and several stencils before i begin to like the design .
sanded and Primed

black then brown

beige

a few touches up and it will be finished

Started cutting out the Guns and skull out of plexi. I ended up redoing the skull


testing the position

Benchmarks no lie...
Cases (or any components), with military names always perform gooder than sissy named parts.

A little break for the holiday Back to modding, Adding another cut out on the case . using a new blade and u can make some nice tight cuts with this.


Cm red

but the finish looks pretty good

Making room for the 240 rad for the front of the case, The optical drive bays made it too snug, i no longer use optical drives so one less bay wont hurt. so time to bring the dremal out

Fits now



Stayed tuned more to come!!

Are you going to clear coat the case with a matte finish?

Nice case (originally) and nice workshop. However I would not have chosen that sense of style, unless of course I was on a stealth black-ops mission which required bringing along the PC in order to wirelessly hack through enemy defenses and remotely take control of their automated weaponry and turrets. Wouldn't want the PC giving away your position now...

When I saw the paracord I thought you would wrap the handles. Maybe something to add...
