Default Cooler Master Scout 2 Camo Edition - 11-09-2012, 07:00 | posts: 90

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 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

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!!
