1 out of 5 eggscould be great if not broken

Pros: great case overall i'd say

Cons: fan cable connector was falling out of its encasing and one of the led fan connectors was completely snapped off.

Other Thoughts: had it not been for bad connectors and cables I think this would be a great case. I loved my last cooler master case. it was the full tower haf. Just wanted something new and was disappointed this came in broke.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Fabulous case for custom build. Loaded this one up with an 8 core water cooled AMD processor, an SSD for booting, large hard drive for storage, 16GB Ram, and massive Nvidia Video. Also added extra fans as there are plenty of spaces for them. The side window is great to allow showing off my game rig. The hot swap SSD bay at the top is a definite bonus as well as the fan controls and USB3 jacks. The box keeps my custom gaming rig cool and quiet even with the water cooled radiator running.

Cons: A bit large and quite heavy but that is what is needed for a high end gamer case.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely use this case again for a high end custom build. I managed to get it on sale so it was a good price for the quality of the build. Cooler Master has built a really nice looking and very solid case for high end needs.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Case

Pros: Very large with plenty of room inside to see and work (a plus for an older builder). High quality construction in every aspect. Cable management was a breeze and my build is slick and clean. The 2.5" SSD cage is cool, but doesn't allow cool-looking SSDs (like the Samsung 850 Pro) to be seen in all their wondrous glory. I Velcroed mine to the top of the cage and now it sits securely on a matte black pedestal and looks killer... with room for ugly drives below.

Cons: Did not include an X-Dock SATA cable and it should have.

Other Thoughts: Overall, very satisfied with the case. I have built many mid-tower ATX PCs and this was my first full-tower. Sure, it's bigger which makes it more cumbersome, but it's a dream to build in, and it's not moving anyway. Everything was easy to install. Adjusting the side fans/HDD cages 90 degrees was simple altho the manual made it look a bit intimidating at first. It was really a breeze. The case fan connectors were a bit confusing since there are multiple connections that aren't clearly defined in the manual, but it turns out the extras are merely in-line headers for extra case fans you might like to add to the built-in fan controller.

5 out of 5 eggsCooler Master Storm Trooper

Pros: I just received this case and it is awesome, its huge and that not a problem for me, just my wife because its going to cost a lot more to fill it up with high end components. There is lots of room for wire management, cooling and components. The side window is a plus. I had the Cooler Master HAF922 and the problem I had with that case was no side window available. If you are thinking about buying this case, don't .think just buy. You will not be disappointed.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have used a lot of CM cases and this one is by far the best. 5 stars for Newegg for getting it to me in 5 days minus the weekend and I live in Saskatchewan.

4 out of 5 eggsBeast

Pros: This thing is an absolute monster. If you can find a build that this thing can't fit then I don't know what to tell you

Cons: The manual was not the most helpful thing in the world and some wires are not marked making it a somewhat of a pain to setup. Then there is one big downside to this case being a monster...it weighs 30lb all by itself.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Tons of room inside. Highly modular, great airflow. There a dust filter on the top where the 200mm fans is (I swapped it out for 2x 120mm blue LEDs), and 2 on the bottom - under the power supply and front bay panel. Speaking of which, my favorite feature has to be the toolbox hidden behind the CM Storm panel. The fan controller on high is almost whisper quiet as well as the stock fans. The LEDs on the HDD cages are fairly bright too.

Cons: Heavy but you tend to get over it after awhile - unless you have a ton of hardware. The 120mm fans on the side are designed specifically for this case so if you want to swap them for a different color, you'll have to go to the Cooler Master site. Didn't come with a SATA cable for the X-Dock but that's fine.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a case with a ton of options, this would be the one to go with.

5 out of 5 eggsso many options to tweak it how you want

Pros: -easy cable management/lots of room
-convertible internal/external drive bays
-looks really good

The first thing you should do is switch the drive bays to face front instead of the side to get better airflow

Cons: hard drive trays are kinda flimsy but they're solid once you put a drive in them. so not much of a con.

Other Thoughts: I wasn't a big fan of the red so I picked up 2 120 cougar green led fans for the front drive cages and a 140 to replace the rear exhaust. I also replaced the top fan with a corsair h100i. I took out the tool box and put the two red fans on the bottom for more airflow. I'm still waiting for my mobo to come in to see it all work but I'm hoping it will be overkill.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Great case for big builds
Love the front USBs
The HDD cage is an awesome idea, it even slides out.

Cons: The screen on the side came with these weird scratches, as if someone rubbed something on it in circles, come on really? It's a new one too.

Other Thoughts: It's a great case and I love it, it's got everything I need.
I'm a little bothered by the scratches cause light DOES reflect off that screen from my lamp and it does irritate me to see those scratches when I peer though to my system.
I'm not sure if Cooler Master will replace that screen or if anyone knows how to buff those out.
