Cooler Master Storm Trooper Case Review

Rating: 9.0.

The new Cooler Master Storm Trooper is a case that is getting a lot of attention. It is a full tower chassis able to handle an array of hard drives, graphics cards and XL ATX motherboards. It also has full dust filter coverage, a fan controller, an external SSD drive hot-swap dock and two uniquely designed modular hard drive cages. The appearance is also something you won’t forget in a hurry.

    I really like the top part of this case, very different as reviewer says.

  • Paulie

    Interesting that the drive bays can be rotated inside, never seen that done before.

  • Erik

    the appearance is too complex for me to find it attractive,. I like simple lines.

    I do agree it is certainly stand out. but for me, ill pass.

  • 0tpix

    The internal design is good, but im not sure about that handle section. Seems a bit daft with such a heavy steel case to expect people to carry them about…….

  • Terrance

    Great images guys. really helped me check out parts of the design. im buying one when they are in stock.

    any ideas when that might be?
