Okay we dive straight into the photo-shoot. As always we start off with packaging. Here the box, clearly denoting the CM Storm Trooper chassis.
The chassis is packaged well and comes protected in Styrofoam and a foam bag, there where no scratches, dents or graffiti spray on was noticeable whatsoever.
Once unleashed form the packaging fury there's the chassis. The Trooper has a very distinguished rugged design. The front bezel is plastic and comes with meshed bay covers, you can remove the bezel by pulling it forward.
The body itself is made out of steel. The Trooper is a full size tower chassis alright, (W) 250 x (H) 605.6 x (D) 578.5 mm / (W) 9.8 x (H) 23.8 x (D) 22.8 inch. A feature that makes the Trooper slightly different from the competition, is a rubber layer that covers most of the front and top half of the case.
It might be carried around to LAN parties, but it is a heavy fracker though, at 13.7 KG / 30.2 lbs, and that's excluding your components.
We review the new Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced edition (Ghost White edition) chassis. And if you think it looks familiar, well it's because it is. The product we'll review today is the CM Storm Scout 2 aimed at you guys, the gamers. The product however has for 98% the DNA of the CM Storm Scout, just a little smaller hence why you probably recognize it.
Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker review
We review the new Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker full tower chassis. and if you think it looks familiar, well it's because it is. The product we'll review today is the CM Storm Stryker chassis aimed at you guys, the gamers. The product however has for 98% the DNA of the CM Storm Trooper, hence why you probably recognize it. Aside from the subtle hints towards Star Wars (Stryker/Trooper), there are distinct differences though. The new Stryker has a predominantly white look with black inserts, we see a side window, and the side panels have been shaped differently as well. Inside again everything is white with black touches.
Cooler Master CM Storm Trigger review
We review the Cooler Master CM Storm Trigger mechanical keyboard. The Trigger as released under the CM Storm branding comes with a lot of features that should be appealing to you as a gamer. For example18K gold-plated ultra-low latency USB connectors, two integrated USB 2.0 ports through a HUB. The Trigger is also a mechanical keyboard, as such is has been equipped with Cherry Black switches. These keys have a long-lived, can withstand a good beating, the stuff you as a gamer like so much.
CM Storm Trooper review
Cooler Master has unleashed its CM Storm Trooper Case. The chassis, as you noted is branded under the CM Storm series. The case features an all black and bulky design with a cool front panel. The Trooper comes with a nice nine expansion slots providing support for multi-GPUs in SLI or Crossfire. in total there's space for 14 hard drives and the motherboard tray even supports XL-ATX form factors. Its one of CMs best chassis to date we dare to state.
