Cooler Master Storm Sniper Case Video Review
8 August 2009
Summary: The Cooler Master Storm Sniper Case is feature for feature one of the very best mid-tower cases on the market. With three fans (2x200mm & 1x120mm) it has excellent air circulation, tooless design, quality build, excellent styling, etc. It even comes with integrated handles at the top.
Excerpt: The Sniper is the first case in Cooler Master's new Storm series for gamers. A prototype of this product was presented at the Games Convention in Leipzig last year, and the first retail units started shipping about a month ago.
Summary: The Cooler Master Storm (CM Storm) Sniper is a great case in many regards. Starting with the ability from the company to create very nicely themed enclosures and adding a level of detail to these overall designs, which other companies have yet to manage, to the well balanced interior.
Pros: Great overall design, Incredible, rugged paint job, Up to 5 fans controllable, Silent when fans are turned down, Plenty of space, Handles to carry the case around, Pushes lots of air - 2x 200 mm units included, Large top fan can be replaced by 120 mm units - perfect for radiator, Screw-less syste...
Cons: Clips to hold expansion cards in placed won't manage large and heavy cards, Fans are quite loud on fastest setting, Screw-less system for optical drives does not hold perfectly., Many openings in the case do not have dust filters, Molex connectors of fan controller not labeled properly
Conclusion: Once again Coolermaster have produced a very functional, good looking case with some nice toolless innovations. While I usually like to come up with some negative points on a case, as no product is perfect, there’s very little wrong with this one.
Pros: Great cooling, Looks good, Cable management is top notch, Toolless features are well implemented
Cons: Toolless clips can’t support too much weight, Fan speed controller is scratchy, Could be a bit expensive for some
