This is one sexy case. Only thing I dislike is the way there is hard drive cages. It reminds me to much of the Antec 1200 I had >.>
post #72 of 12396
After seeing the reviews that cropped up, I have to say I am a bit confused.

First, its more expensive than the HAF-X... So where does it fit in their case line up? The HAF-X is bigger and has better cooling and yet cheaper?

Also why the carrying handle unless it is to replace the Scout? It's far too big to use as a carried case on a regular basis. Heck my fully loaded Scout weighs a ton. The Trooper would be back injury worthy with a full complement of hardware.

I guess they feel that the extra buttons and fan controller justifies the pricetag = I certainly can't quite figure where this case fits within their price line up either.

Then again this case is part of their "other" lineup for lack of a better explanation.
CM does great to eek.gifconfused.gif one IMO.

The ideas incorporated in this case should be in a Storm Scout II (if they'll ever be one) case.

Just like CM to skip/skimp on the tiny stuff like the lack of a USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter.

I kinda like the "oldish" school hard drive cages and it seems easy enough to change the configuration of such. It looks to be pretty solid but user experience will tell.smile.gif

When I was a kid, I used to help my dad lift 80 lb cement bags. Lifting a full tower now around 80lbs isn't so bad, but not something I would do every day. Having a handle itself makes carrying easier. Check out this picture below from benchmark reviews:
cooler_master_storm_trooper_size_comparison.jpg

Shows me:
- Trooper steel body is actually a good 2 inches shorter than the HAF 932 (which is the same as HAF X)
- Fitting 9 PCI slots into a smaller case than HAF X is not bad idea
- Actual water cooling support is better than HAF X if you count the front mounting 360mm potential

So I guess if you're the kind of gamer who is too poor to have a primary full tower for home (folding and WC), and a secondary Scout or MITX case for LANs or parties, Trooper is for you. The person who needs 1 system that he can put everything in, but still take it places. I can't think of another full tower that I would take with me anywhere, but the funny thing is whenever I go to LANs half of the people have Antec 1200 and Thermaltake Armors.

Its bigger where it counts.. Its Longer and goes deeper than those other cases.
