CM Storm Sniper - Gaming Mid Tower Computer Case with Fan Controller and LED Light Switch

5 out of 5 eggs Plenty of space and super quiet 03/11/2010

This review is from: CM Storm Sniper - Gaming Mid Tower Computer Case with Fan Controller and LED Light Switch

Pros: My primary reason for purchasing this case was that it had open ventilation and large cooling fans. I wanted a quiet machine. The loudest componenet of my system was a Cooler Master 600W power supply which has just been replaced by a Thermaltake 850W which is much quieter.

I really don't like large cases. I never have. But, to run the toys I like, it is super convenient to have lot's of room to work.

The front panel is extremely convenient with plenty of USB ports and even an E-SATA which I use with my roving backup drive.

I'm running a Lan Party motherboard with a dual core 3Ghz Intel processor, 8G RAM, two Radeon 5850 GPU's, and two 1.5TB WD green drives.

Cons: Big but light.

The little plastic tabs that hold the cards in can be tricky. I broke off half of them before I figured out that you have to press down on them from the middle instead of just lifting them from the end tab. Better documentation would have been highly welcomed in this regard. But it is not important, you can screw in your cards which I would rather do anyway. The tabs can be moved out of the way if you should choose to go this route.

Thermaltake Toughpower XT W0230RU 850W ATX 12V 2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Super Quiet and highly modular. It comes with all the cabling you'll need including connections for two high end graphics cards (those extra two PCIE connectors that each card requires). The supply has three understated indicator LED's that will help you in set up should you run into a problem.
I swapped out a Cooler Master 600 unit with this one and I can't believe how much quieter it is.

Cons: None
