Alright, let's get this puppy started. The full tower sized Stryker has just about every type of interface connections for storage devices you can think of, including an X Dock station right in between the I/O panel and Multi Bay Slots for an additional 2.5 External HDD/SSD adapter.
The I/O panel has much more to tickle your senses though; two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0ports. You also stumble into a built in Fan Controller with three red LED indicators, it indicates low, medium, and high power on the connected fans. Hidden all the way down are meshed drive bay covers and located at the bottom is actually a slide-in box to hide away all small tools, cables and screws and such.
So we already learned that the Stryker is geared up with extra features, let's have a look at some of them. The Stryker includes an ultra-strong travel-ready carrying handle. CM Storm Stryker has a stylish glossy black and white finish on the case and included fans, windowed side panel, full dust filter coverage, a fan controller, an external SSD drive hot-swap dock and two uniquely designed modular hard drive cages. These features give CM Storm Stryker the ability to adapt to workstation or water-cooled gaming configurations fairly easily.
