Conclusion: Before I go ahead, I have experience with standoff sockets from both Bitfenix and now with this case. Bitfenix has a little better finish on the circumference of the socket- but both are practically same.
Summary: When I first saw the Storm Trooper computer case I was very impressed by the aesthetics and had high hopes for it, assuming that it had all of the refinements that I have come to expect from a Cooler Master case.
Pros: » Aesthetically a very well done case, » Cooling design is well done with plenty of fans and a fan controller built in, » Handle on top looks cool and works very well, even with a fully loaded system, » Plenty of room for 2.5", 3.5", and 5.25" drives, » Decent cable management features, » Large c...
Cons: » Side panels don't go on very well, » Not many tool-less features, » Two front intake fans are not filtered - but other areas are filtered which don't need to be, » 3.5" external bay devices are way too difficult to install, » 2.5" internal drive cage isn't very practical
Summary: Cooler Master is one of the premier names in the PC market for cases, power supplies and cooling solutions. This new case is the latest addition to their CM Storm line of cases. Of course, the name of this particular case is going to recall a particular series of Sci-Fi movies.
Conclusion: Overall, the CM Storm Trooper went above and beyond our expectations. The X-Dock on the front of the case was a superb addition for people who want quick and easy access to their 2.5″ drives.

Summary: The Cooler Master gamers department aka Storm send us one of it's latest creations : The Trooper case. We were impressed with the Enforcer case, being manufactured in typical Cooler Master style. Excellent craftsmanship, no rough edges at all.
