[awardfabrik] The New CM STORM " TROOPER " case - Page 10  

post #91 of 99
I think we need to make an agreement. Whoever gets their case first, needs to post either and unboxing video, AND/or some very detailed photos.
Some of us don't have the funds to order it right away, but we are definitely in need of good photos and specs. I just hate it when you've been waiting for a product to come out and when it finally does everyone is so busy with it they don't post photos! or horrible ones at that.
So do your duty!!!

Agreed?

If the price is right then it's my next case. My case is too small.

I think it looks pretty nice. Big, spacious, looks like it would be good for air and set up for no-mod-needed rad up top. I like the vents/handle on top. All black, grommeted wire management holes, huge cpu cutout, meshed side panal for extra fans... CM always packs lots of nice features in their cases.

I do like the look of this case and it appears a couple side fans can be added.
How could you say that about a beautiful HAF X hell I think my looks amazing

Well guys the case is out and available!!
Get your credit cards out!!
(Then post pics)



Here are the first CM Storm Trooper Reviews:

Bjorn3d's video review is pathetic, but their site had great high quality pics of the Trooper.
From the looks of it, a 240mm rad can easily be mounted at the top. If you remove the extra 2.5" drive cage at the bottom, along with the toolkit box, another 240mm rad can be mounted at the bottom. If you want to get even more extreme, remove the 2 modular HDD cages, and you'll be able to fit a 360 or possible a 480 rad in the front. so 8x120 rad internally.. + the rear 140mm and optional side 2x120mm fans.. damn thats awesome.
This is the perfect case for both air and watercooling setups.
It can fit gpu cards up to 12.7" long, so pretty much any card as of right now (even HD 6990)
And if you prefer the side mounted hdd's like me (makes for a cleaner look + easier cable management) you can turn the middle cage 90 degrees and have the front 120 blowing over your gpu's.
And for a case to come with 4 fans off the bat.. is great. (2x120s, 1x140, 1x200)
And it looks like I was right about the price @ $189, which honestly.. is amazing for all of the features you get.
And the top is just damn sexy. No other way to put it.

Oh, and I personally think Hardware Canucks does some of the best reviews. They are tough on the products and tell it like it is. They have a good eye on seeing exactly how it can be used. And their video reviews are top notch. Great quality pics, and professional format. I was glad to see they posted one so quickly.
