CM Storm Trooper Computer Case Review
Manufacturer: Cooler Master
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article was provided by Cooler Master.
Most computer enthusiasts have only a single card in their systems: the video card. That being true, most of us could easily get by with a micro ATX motherboard in a small form factor case. But there are those who have multiple video cards, or water cooling setups with separate reservoirs and pumps; who have lots of hard drives and 5.25" bay devices, or need an XL-ATX motherboard to run a triple or quad video card system. They may represent a tiny section of the market, but they need a full tower case, and Cooler Master's shown before they're willing to address this need with cases like their HAF series. In this review, Benchmark Reviews looks at their latest full tower effort: the Cooler Master Storm Trooper.
Cooler Master came onto the enthusiast radar a decade ago with a line of elegant (and expensive) all aluminum cases. Since then, they've branched out and now have a complete line of cases ranging from micro ITX through small and mid-tower cases up to a line of full tower cases. Benchmark Reviews has had the opportunity to review a number of Cooler Master cases and we've been impressed with all of them.
The number of people, even enthusiasts, who actually need the extra space in a full tower chassis represent a tiny portion of the market...which makes Cooler Master's committment to it all the more impressive. All of Cooler Master's previous Storm line of cases have been mid tower designs; the Storm Trooper is the first full tower Storm case.
