Cooler Master Releases Storm Scout 2 Advanced James White March 6, 2013 Press Release 1 Flares 1 Flares × A short while back, the Storm Scout was updated to the Storm Scout 2. It was well received, but did garner some negative feedback from users who thought the case could use some minor improvements here and there. Cooler Master actually listened to their customers and is now releasing the retooled Storm Scout 2 Advanced. The first step to updating to the new Storm Scout 2 Advanced was to address customer feedback. Cooler Master improved the coverage of the intake filter layout and the case now comes in the Ghost White color. The next thing was to add value with additions like a second 3.5" to 2.5" bay converter (can support four 2.5" drives). The CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced also has two additional front intake LED fans in addition to the single 120 mm rear. The Ghost White CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced is currently available for $109.99 which is a $10 premium over the Storm Scout 2. In addition, if you are a previous owner of the Storm Scout 2, Cooler Master will send you an upgrade kit to add the Advanced features at no additional cost. You can't beat that kind of company loyalty to its customers.
