Lol... You never know if they'll even keep the name "storm trooper". I was thinking they should change it to "storm recon" or something like that. Yet again, I honestly don't think CM's nomenclature is the reason why they're in business. This design they've used in the demo sample of the case isn't as rugged and banged up like their HAF series but doesn't go full-blown conservative like the ATCS840 chassis I fell in love with. I honestly give props to CM for maintaining the 9 expansion slot-style mobo tray they've kept with the HAF-X case. I also wonder if fans could be mounted behind the motherboard tray...

Also I'm curious to see if they'll whip in the 200mm beasts they've been doing lately. Only reason why I said "CM has gone back to the good ol' stacker days" is because those chassis just house a crap tonne of 120s. Should they decide to go that route it would be really easy to source and tack on rads without having to tear up the chassis just to do it.

It looks like a larger version of the Storm Scout by the Side view. With 2 120s at the top. Two on the side and surely some in the front. If not it would be easy to mount at least 3 in the front. I can't wait to see a Mod for it. It is coming.

IF they are calling this a Full Size case it must be bigger than the Scout. Also the Scout is 19 inch x 19 inches and this one is approximately 750 mm x 750 mm Judging from the 200 mm fans in the picture. so that would make the approximate total case size as 29 x 29 inches. That is a full 10 inches of room side and high more than the Scout.

I think that this is the case that will replace the Haf but that is just MHO.

Looks to me like they took the scout and stretched it till it was the size of the haf lol

That was the whole idea of this case. In a way, this case is the COOLER MASTER STORM SCOUT II Case

Actually, its more like a revised HAF with front cooling coined from Lian Li Z series.
