The CM Storm Enforcer seems to share quite a lot in common with Cooler Master’s 690 II case but there are some key differences. The Enforcer feels much more cheaply made than the 690 as a result of the vast amount of cheap-feeling matte black plastic used for the front panel of the case. Additionally, the 690 has room for a 240 mm radiator in the roof whereas the Enforcer only has room for fans.
Out of the two cases, the 690 seems like the better option. But when we compare these two cases to the likes of the Fractal Design Define XL which only commands a £10 price premium over the Enforcer, we cant help but feel slightly disappointed with the Enforcer. For the extra, you get a much more attractive and better built case that has more space to work with inside. It also features sound proofing throughout and better overall airflow. The Fractal Define XL is currently available for £84 at Overclockers.
As the CM Storm Enforcer has only just been released, it is not yet on sale anywhere online. But with a recommended retail price of £78, we feel it is around £15 too expensive. At around £60, the Enforcer would offer much better value for money, as it stands however there are better options out there. For those in the market for a case at this price point, we would also recommend the Cooler Master 690 II which can be purchased for £75 at Overclockers. This is a much more flexible, attractive case and it supports water cooling.
- Attractive Design
- Low-noise fans
- Doesn’t offer as much for the money as other cases at this price point
- Cheap Feeling Plastics
- No support for watercooling
KitGuru says: A good case overall but would be much more attractive if they could drop the price a little.
