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.

4 out of 5 eggsThe Beast of Cases

Pros: Enormous. Fits everything and then some. Good quality. Well thought out. Looks Great.

Cons: Heavy. Wrong Instruction manual. X-Dock missing cables.

Other Thoughts: First. I did not buy this from NE so the loss of the egg is nothing to do with them. Read on.

This is a great case for anyone who doesn't want any compromise about the size of their build because this thing is enormous. The build quality is amazing but along with that thick sheet metal comes weight which for some may be daunting. I had zero problems building my rig with the exception of turning the hard drive bays 90 degrees..my low IQ was showing when I couldn't figure out how to re-install the bays but then when I went to refer to the manual I found I was looking at a HAF 932 document. Were those wacky workers in China joking around by putting the wrong manual in the case? So with no access to the internet because my build was in pieces to download the right manual, it became a guessing game on how to connect cables and get the drive bays right. For that an egg is lost. Once put together, the rig looked awesome. The only other gripe I have is I would have gladly paid an additional $10 to have the X Dock pre-cabled. Love the case though. Recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsMagnificent Case

Pros: Been building my own systems for quite a few years. The last really great case was about 10 years ago. Then I ran across the CM Storm Trooper. Well engineered, well constructed, easy to work with, room to work inside of it, the fans are place properly so the entire system runs cool ... very nicely done.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid case!

Pros: High quality case! If you want a case with plenty of room and great cable management on the inside as well as BIG, sturdy, and beastly on the outside then this is the case for you! the extra features such as the toolbox and handle are also awesome!

Cons: I wish it came with 2 fans up front but it still keeps a stable cool environment for high end hardware.

5 out of 5 eggsNice BIG Case

Pros: **A LOT of space to house your parts... did i mention A LOT of space? this is really the biggest asset in my book, it was a dream not fighting the inside trying to route cables or cut up my knuckles trying to plug in some small fan header.
**Significant cutouts covered by rubber grommets to route cabling. Hiding your cables will NOT be a problem here.
**Comes as "side mount" hard drive bays but can change to front mount (I did).
**Includes a 2.5" SATA front bay, convenient when trying to recover or move data off a 2.5" drive.
**Adjustable fan speed button mounted near power button.
**Removable/washable fan filters.
**"Bad boy" (200MM) top fan can be replaced w/ two 120MM fans if desired.
**Rear exhaust fan mount accepts 120 OR 140 MM fans.
**Comes with a nifty little "tool drawer" (size of a 5.25" bay) which can hold parts or adapters etc.
**Rubber grip handle on the top, this was a must for me, I was tired of lugging my rig on a wheeled cart.
**(2) front USB 2.0 and (2) front USB 3.0
**This case really does look great, sleek black, red LED accents, huge window. I also added more red LED's and LED fans.
**Power Supply can be mounted right side or upside down, convenient if you want to have the cables coming into your PS facing the opposite side, I mounted mine upside down for this reason (this was an unexpected perk).
**Many thumbscrews over conventional Phillips head screws.

Cons: **Case may be too big for some, not a con for me.
**Side/Front mount HDD bays only allow for the LED fans to mount in the same direction. That means if you install drives on the side, fans are on the side, if you install on the front, then fans are on the front.
**Rear and top fans are not LED, easily correctable.

Other Thoughts: Coming off of a 6 year old Antec 900 case, this case is HUGE! I thought too big when I unboxed it but now that it's sitting on my desk, it looks great and it was nice to have all the room inside while putting it together.
Expect to spend about two hours putting your rig inside this thing and most WILL need to instruction book for some reference, for example the fan wiring and how to adjust the drive bays to front mount. I've been building my own PC for two decades now and I did need to check the manual for a couple of points.

The cons listed are personal preference so for me it was not a problem and thus I rate this case w/ 5 eggs. It really is superior to my ol' Antec 900 in every way.

Within the past year or two, I've been buying more Cooler Master products, specifically due to reliability. They've always made good stuff, but they've really stepped up their game in the enthusiast market. Now whenever I look for accessories, my first stop is Cooler Master and Logitech.
