2 out of 5 eggsbeware of possible flaws in workmanship

This review is from: CM Storm Trooper - Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Handle and External 2.5" Drive Dock with Side Panel Window

Pros: great design easy to work with and use also very pleasing to the eye.

Cons: iv'e had this case since Tuesday and i was very excited to get it,
but was disappointed to find that when i took off the protective plastic on the pluxy-glass panel that it had scuff and buff marks all over it and had some white residue on there like glue or something . Also when i opened up the case on day one, one of the light up, red 120mm fan blades decided to just come off, on top of that that, you know that fancy little removable cubby that sits under the hdd/ssd and drive slots? well the clasp broke on it from just merely pulling it out and getting stuck.
so yeah, pretty rough experience so far hopefully cooler master can make it better, by replacing my whole side panel, that cubby and my cubby top at the least!
thank you

Other Thoughts: if this were such a good case why is it that i had to experience these problems?

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case I've used - Better than NZXT and AZZA

This review is from: CM Storm Trooper - Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Handle and External 2.5" Drive Dock with Side Panel Window

Pros: I build several machines a year. I've been using NZXT but have been getting frustrated with the cheap plastic parts they use (i.e. dvd front cover where spring doesn't bring it back up when closing the dvd tray).
This case has quality all over it. I've been super impressed with all the little things they though of, even a parts tray so when you make adjustments later on you don't have to hunt for screws or covers. I even put the p-cap in there in case I need to replace the motherboard.
Great Case - can't go wrong. Plenty of room for wires and it looks amazing.

Cons: Can't think of a single one honestly

5 out of 5 eggsBest case ever!

This review is from: CM Storm Trooper - Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Handle and External 2.5" Drive Dock with Side Panel Window

Pros: -Amazing design
-The Handle makes this case
-Dust screens to prevent dust buildup
-Almost completely silent
-Massive window to view all your parts
-Awesome cable management do to the back panel
-The dual removable/ rotatable HDD cages

Cons: None and I doubt there ever will be one.

Other Thoughts: I got this case to replace a case I bought over two years ago. My main issue was I wanted a Handle. Not having a handle is killer. I take my PC to my friends and families homes. I love the design, its so beautiful. I wish I would of known bout this case years ago. I didn't even think id ever want another case, till I started to realize I bought my old case because it was the best rated. That was my mistake. Getting this case was the best idea I have made in years. I've only had this case for bout a week now, but I know a good case when I see one. Like I said before, the design is top notch. The airflow is amazing, I haven't had any dust build up unlike my old case. It is most likely do to the fact that this case also has removable dust trays. I found this case a couple months ago. I liked the design and it hit me. I gotta have this case. This is the full tower ever gamer should get. Specially if you have to carry your stuff around like I do. I would recommend this case to everyone even none gamer's. Cooler Master built a master piece.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Awesome Case So Far

This review is from: CM Storm Trooper - Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Handle and External 2.5" Drive Dock with Side Panel Window

Pros: The case looks super great! The handle makes it a lot more convenient to carry around for it being a full tower. The fans it comes with are pretty good for being stock fans. Very customizable case, with good wire management capabilities. The buttons looks great with the red/black combination. Very easy installation from switching cases, and it even comes with a small storage box in the bottom front of the case (That box is where the screws and everything will be if you end up getting this case).

Cons: There was a small issue with the chassis case fan where it's not working atm, i can't be sure why just yet, but I might not have it hooked up correctly, but then again it is a Stock fan so i'm not surprised if it is dead for some reason. And one other issue was the case fan wires are kind of confusing to hook up, i kind of wish they would have instructions on how exactly to make everything work properly the first time.

Other Thoughts: Overall, i very much enjoy this case! I would recommend this case to any of my friends, and it's at a pretty reasonable price non the less! Great product :)

5 out of 5 eggsRugged Case

This review is from: CM Storm Trooper - Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Handle and External 2.5" Drive Dock with Side Panel Window

Pros: I have been a Computer Technician for quite some time now. In particular, I specialize in system builds. Despite this, I have never had time or spent energy building my own PC due to my high standards for quality and price on the parts. I am constantly searching for parts that fit my personal standards while building and maintaining other people's computers, but haven't been impressed. Most often, the case is overlooked when manufactured so that it saves the company cash. Even the most aesthetically pleasing models feel like they will break apart in my hands. The day a customer brought this case in for maintenance was a turning point in this opinion of mine.
Weight indicates high quality metal and plastic. Handle is formed into the case like it was intended instead of an afterthought. Size is amazing, and for someone who is planning on fully bendable acrylic liquid cooling, I'll have room to spare!
I had watch a few un-boxing and review videos on this model and was impressed with the quality. However the videos couldn't display the feel and strength of the plastic used. I was even more impressed when I go my own. It feels like a high grade polypropylene material.
I got this item using a discount during a sale on it for under $130. For the quality, I'm thrilled to begin building this machine.

P.S. I ordered it without any special shipping and was told it would take 5-7 business days. I received it 2 days later!

Cons: I haven't owned for very long, and without a motherboard I have no way of testing the front panel for functionality yet. SSD tray seemed to be randomly thrown in as an afterthought, but for most people who will be buying this case, you're just going to use the 3.5" drive bays with an adapter for a 2.5" drive anyway (you'll want more space for intake fans or radiators).

5 out of 5 eggsTower of Power

This review is from: CM Storm Trooper - Gaming Full Tower Computer Case with Handle and External 2.5" Drive Dock with Side Panel Window

Pros: Has all the space you need especially for large graphics card such as Sapphire Trixx R9 280-290x cards. Good Air flow for customization of case fans.

Cons: The only con are the instructions that come with this case are awful. There are plenty of YouTube videos on how to put the case together as well as modifications.
