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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case and warranty is amazing

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: Owned this case since March 2014, I will say the case has been awesome. March 2015 took it out and air pressured the fans from the debris of dust. Overall a great case and still operation with no fan failures or anything.

Cons: Front panel slots, which there are a total of 9 slots, 3 have become brittle and has snapped. Has a three year warranty so can't complain and is currently going through RMA for 3 replacement slots. Waiting on it but usually cooler masters customer service is pretty satisfactory.

5 out of 5 eggsnice 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: the case is very solid overall. i love the modular 3.5 in bays, and the removable 2.5 in ssd bays. the case has 3 dust screens for easy channing. the air flow is optimal. the side panel is perfect for viewing all the hardware you want to show, but covering the wires.

Cons: the acrylic side could be a little higher to cover the psu. the car is heavy and packaging doesn't protect it from damage very well at all so expect to send the first one back to get replaced as both the original and replacement i ordered was damaged.

5 out of 5 eggs

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: This case is huge and has plenty of fans, all of which were installed prior to arrival. All I had to do was mount the PS, Motherboard, and drives, connect the front panel wires, and go. It feels incredibly sturdy and I'll probably never be at a loss for space needed in future expansions.

My CPU has remained very cool between the airflow and my (probably overkill) heatsink. When idling it's in the mid to upper 20's C, and after some activity it's in the lower 30's. I've yet to gather any statistics during more resource intensive applications.

Cons: It's a bit heavy? That's what you get with a metal full tower though, if you want something lighter, go with a plastic case. The top handle makes it easy to carry if you can manage the weight.

The instructions could have been a tad more descriptive, but I worked through it.

Other Thoughts: The HDD light didn't work, but that could be my motherboard too. It's not a big deal anyway.
