5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Very good build quality
Space for lots of fans
Holds a lot of hardware, and the extruded side panel makes it possible to hide more cables behind the Motherboard panel.
The fan controller is quite good.

Cons: You have to remove the bottom base in order to clean the bottom fan / PSU (There is a fan filter on the bottom fan, but it's installed with screws and not easily removed / None for the PSU).

Watch out for the plastic clips on the base / top (I've broken 3 of them already).

In my case, two of the 3 200mm fans had LEDs that didn't light up (Two out of four LEDs lit).

My case weighs 60 pounds with the stuff I have in it right now.

Other Thoughts: I have changed out almost all of the stock fans:
One 120x37 Delta Fan on the rear panel (PWM / replaced stock exhaust fan)
Two 120x37 Scythe Ultra Kaze fans on top (On case fan controller / replaced the stock 200mm fan on top)
One 140x37 Silverstone fan on bottom (PWM)
One 140x37 Silverstone fan on the front (Replaced the stock 200mm one, wow this fan was a tight fit / PWM)
The stock 200mm on the side panel (On case fan controller).
One 120 Corsair SP120 High Performance Fan on the Silverstone Drive Cage (4 Drives into 3 5.25" bays on the front).

It holds:
ASUS P8Z77 V-Pro
Intel i5 2500K
Hyper 212+ with Two Delta Fans (120x37) in push/pull
Two FirePro V7900s
HTOmega Claro Plus Soundcard
LSI MegaRAID 9260-CV 81 Raid controller
Cooler Master Silent Pro M700 (700W) PSU
In the stock drive bays:
One SanDisk Extreme 2 Pro 480 GB SSD
One Plextor M2P 256 GB SSD
One Western Digital 2 TB Black Drive
One Western Digital 1 TB Black Drive
In the Silverstone Drive Bay (3 5.25" to 4 3.5" drives):
Four 4TB Western Digital Red Drives

5 out of 5 eggsMassive Case!

Pros: Big, good airflow

Cons: Issues fitting my H100i into the case. Even though the case is big, I had to modify the case to fit the radiator in the case without it hitting my motherboard. Still not worth dropping an egg.

Other Thoughts: I have been asked countless times why I have such a big case as if it is a bad thing. I think having a big case is a good thing because you have more room for things you can put inside.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Owned for 2 years. Love this case, tons of room. Looks awesome, easy to move around because of the design of the top of the case. Keeps things cool. Nice amount of USBs. Easy accessibility to work on it. Folding feet is also nice to fit into different places. Lights look great still.

Cons: Only con came recently when we went to clean it - some dust built up which was my fault. (on the front lower section) We had to unbend the mesh and remove it to clean some thicker dust pieces out of that part. It wasn't a big deal. Not worth taking star off.

Also one fan might possibly be in the starting phases of going (bearings). I expect to replace these - but it seems the short end of their life is around 2 years (that is for the larger ones on the side).

Other Thoughts: The adjustable fan speed knob is an awesome feature but I do wish it was located in a different spot. I was rebooting after a brown out and my husband went to change the speed of my fans and hit the button and shut my power off instead which caused a fatal error. Probably because it wasn't his case and wasn't familiar with it - but I've been weary of doing the same thing since I bought it.

5 out of 5 eggsCM Storm Sniper is worth it.

Pros: Great air flow, very little dust gets inside the case even after 2 years, very roomy with good cable room behind the MB, no sharp edges inside, onboard fan controller. Pretty much what a bunch of other people have already said its awesome.

Cons: I'm not a big fan of the handles on the top. My USB sticks have got lost in there and its a pain to get them out.

Other Thoughts: As far a computer case goes you don't get much better than this. I've had it for over 2 years now its a winner in my book.

5 out of 5 eggslong term owner

Pros: Sturdy, rock solid. Excellent air circulation without all the dust. copious amount of room for cables, add-on fans and accessories. plenty of front panel usb slots. Tool-less upgrades after initial build. snap off removable dust filter on the front air intake. for that matter, dust filters, everywhere you'd use for air intake.

Cons: heavy, i've moved twice in the 3 years i've owned it and it's a freakin beast. to haul around. or anytime i need to take it outside to blow out the filters.
If all possible fans are plugged into the front panel fan control, max fan speed is reduced. if you start splitting the power cables to accommodate more fans, expect a big drop off in max rpm. this is only an issue when you add additional aftermarket fans, not those included.

manual fan control becomes bothersome and a hassle. fun for the first week maybe, then i just started leaving it all the way up or down.

Other Thoughts: i've owned this thing quite a while, and it's still a boss. glad i finally invested in a nice case a few years back. Do yourself a favor and get a decent case. It's had two different builds in it by now and i still don't plan to deviate from it. next build will be in it too.

drive bays are large and roomy, with one dvd drive in it, i just wedged a cooler master cpu water cooler in the remaining bays. due to vented drive bay covers, it gets fresh air and still has room for a push-pull config

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Case

Pros: + Large for a Mid Tower Case
+ Great Airflow
+ Nice Aethetics
+ Tons of Connectivity/Features
+ Easy to disassemble/clean

Cons: - Back Openings for PCI-e slots may be a little tight, my old GPU had a mini-HDMI that I couldn't use due to overlap. No such problems with my new card though

Other Thoughts: Really really nice case here. When I built my first PC 3-4 years ago I decided that I wanted to spend my money on the foundation first and the components second. This meant getting the PC case and Power Supply that I wanted and going maybe a bit budget on the internals. 3 years later and my Storm Sniper & 750W top shelf Power Supply are still taking names as I am upgrading my internals to current gen size cards/specs.

I really love this case.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great airflow, lots of room, good amount of usb ports, looks good

Cons: Somewhat expensive, LED lights have a poor connection

Other Thoughts: This case is great, its very big and sturdy and keeps everything very cool, however it is somewhat pricy and the lights on the fans have a shaky connection and won't always turn on which puts it down to 4 eggs for me.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this case

Pros: The description says mid size but the dimensions disagree.
This case is big and deep. I ran two GTX470SC's in this case and never overheated. I now have an X79 board and two GTX670FTW and still no temperature problems.

Cons: Should come with a 200mm fan for the side. I did add one to mine when I built my first system. Also with the newer boards it would be nice to have sata 3 connections on top also.

5 out of 5 eggsStorm Sniper

Pros: First off, Great Case for both Air-flow and Quality. Also looks great! Plenty of space for today's Video Cards and CPU Coolers. Currently running:
Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
Zalman CNPS9900MAX-B Blue CPU Cooler
G.Skill Ripjaw X 1600 32GB kit
MSI GTX570 Sli set-up
Rosewill 1000W PSU
SoundBlaster PCIe Recon3D soundcard

With the air-flow in this case, I'm getting idle temps on CPU as low as 18C to 22C and after running SWToR for an hour and a half today, I quickly checked the Nvidia system monitor for temps and CPU was at 41C, that's after an hour and a half of gaming, really good :)

Video cards, were at GPU1 was 56C and GPU2 was 39C which is much, much better than what I was getting before this Storm Sniper Case. (see other thoughts)

I also have a HAF X 942 Cooler Master Case for my other build. The Storm Sniper is about 2 inches shorter in height but is just about the same in depth as the HAF X 942. With the MSI GTX570's I have about 5 inches between the cards and the SSD/HDD drive bays, so plenty of space for the newer GTX680, 670, and 660 series cards. Which I will be upgrading to soon.

Really wanted to test the current temps on the 570's before upgrading to the 600 series graphics because of the heat issues the 570's have, or had should I say. (again see other thoughts)

I'm sure I could come up with a few more Pros but that's it for now. The heat issues I was having are now gone.

Very happy with the Storm Sniper Case, nicely done Cooler Master and as always, Newegg, ordered on Thursday morning, had it Friday afternoon, Thank you Newegg.

Cons: Hate to say it but, anytime Fed-ex handles the delivery. I ordered 2 of these cases, one box seems to be un-damaged but one box came in with about a 5 inch chunk of the corner gone, and all the way down the side from top to bottom was gouged and banged up. I just don't think Newegg would ship something out in that condition. Each time Fed-ex has delivered items from Newegg the boxes have been abused. UPS I have to say, I have almost always gotten non-abused packages. (my theory anyway)

Luckily only the foam packaging inside the box took the hits, case was fine,,, whew

Con on the Case itself though, I would have to say, it doesn't come with the Case speaker hook-up for the Post Beep. I'm old school and want my Post-up Beeps, so I ordered a couple of the Apevia Case Speakers from Newegg.

The HAF X 942 comes with this little speaker for Post-up Beep, and as cheap as they are, really think it should be included with the Storm Sniper and all cases for that matter. For those who don't need or want the Beeps, just don't hook it up, easy fix :)

Other Thoughts: For about 7 - 10 years I've been using the Gigabyte Aurora mid-tower case. It's seen a lot of different builds go into it and handled all. However with set-up mentioned above I was getting CPU Temps in the 55C range after gaming, Idle was around 28C or so, not terrible, but my GTX 570's were really bad. I was getting GPU1 temps of 75C to 80C and GPU2 was hovering around 65C to 70C, not really comfortable with those temps.

Just wanted to add that for all to see the difference on temps I'm getting now with the Storm Sniper Case.

I would definitely recommend this case
