Cooler Master CM Storm Enforcer Review
4 October 2011
Excerpt: Introduction View Image For the gamer on a budget, being efficient is crucial. I personally take a great deal of pleasure from researching hardware for weeks to make sure that when I finally make a decision, I get the most I possibly can for my money. Most often this leads me to hardware that is extremely versatile, allowing me to carefully craft and shape my system for many years to come.
Excerpt: With good cooling performance, a rich feature set, great looks and a roomy and convenient interior, the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer is one of the better mid-tower chassis I've seen in a long time. The interior is highly configurable and easy to work in with cable management aids that really work well.
Summary: The Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Case has great styling, lots of drive bays, plenty of fans, radiator support, black interior, side window, cable management, USB 3, and much more. If you're in the market for an affordable mid-tower gaming case take a look at this product.
Conclusion: Personally I think Enforcer is one of the best looking cases out on the market at the moment. With a little “geekish” look and design it is perfect choice for gaming computers. There is enough space inside even for higher end computers and enough fan slots for extreme cooling. Enforcer is well balanced case without any major cons. The largest problem with the case (as with most of the higher quality cases) is the looks – you either like or dislike it.
Summary: When we visited Coolermaster Labs early this year we had some ideas how the new Enforcer was taking form. We also saw then some pre avalaution models of the now released Cosmos case. At Cebit 2011 Marco (CM's marketing guy for the Storm line up) was eager to show off their latest creation to us. It had some pretty good features that could please any gamer out there. Though we we had ( as usual ) some criticism on some concept ideas.
Summary: The CM Storm Enforcer was very to install all of my components in. You do not have to remove the front to remove the blanks covering the optical bays. You can reach them from inside very easily. The tool-less optical drive bays were simple to use, making installing drives very easy. The supplied fasteners and standoffs made finding the right screw a breeze. After installing all my motherboard standoffs, my ATX motherboard went in without a hitch.
Pros: Very Unique Design, Good Air-flow, Native USB 3.0 Ports, See Through Window, Security System
Excerpt: This is the new case mid-tower case from Cooler Master. As we have seen in the past Cooler Master has proven that they are one of the premier companies in this market. Their build quality and features are really terrific. We will have to see if this new case in their Storm lineup is able to live up to their previous accomplishments.
Summary: has always made a good impression with their cases, and the Storm Enforcer mid-tower case continues this tradition. Overall the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer is a well designed and solidly built case that provides features usually limited to more expensive cases. Some of the things that would-be buyers might be most pleased to see include tool-less drive installation, water cooling grommets, support for long video cards, good cable management features, and support for...
Pros: » Two USB 3.0 ports on the front panel, » Convenient cable management features, » Tool-less 5.25" and 3.5" drive installation, » Easy access to CPU cooler mounting bracket, » Nearly silent, » Good value
Cons: » No top exhaust fan included, » 2.5" drive installation is not completely tool-less
Excerpt: In hockey, the enforcer is the tough guy, the monster, the goon who exacts revenge on dirty play by their opponent, with exceptionally harsh violence exacted on those going after star players. If we can take this definition to this case, it has built-in attitude- with revenge coming to those who challenge it. With its very clean imposing looks, it has enforcer written all over it.
Pros: Flawless Matching finish on steel and plastic inside and out., Storm Guard” Peripheral Security, Front Panel USB 3.0, Very sturdy construction, Finish resists fingerprints, Multiple configurations for hard drives/SSD drives and oversize graphics cards., Amazingly simple 3.5 and 5.25 drive locking
Cons: The “Rotatable” hard drive section won’t let you use standard 3.5 drives when rotated., Smallish feet on bottom for a bottom mount power supply case.
