Coolermaster Storm Sniper

Cases

Coolermaster Sniper – Externals

The case itself is pretty damn big, not quite as large as the Lian Li case we reviewed recently, but still pretty damn huge. It’s got a sleek black finish, which leans mostly towards the matt spectrum, but its reflective enough that it doesn’t look dull.

At the top of the case at the front end, you have a pretty well fleshed out panel for your connectors and buttons. Along with an oversized on/off switch, there’s a fan speed control dial, several USB 2.0 ports, a firewire and eSATA connector, and a couple of 3.3mm jacks for headphones and mic.

While I like the fan speed controller, it doesn’t have that nice, smooth feel of quality you get with some turn dials; it just feels a bit scratchy.

The front of the Sniper is almost completely grilled in order to allow for good airflow.

The top panel of the Sniper is quite interesting, as it not only incorporates a giant grilled section to allow exhausted air, but also a large handle. The whole section is raised up along the edges, with a hollowed out section running through the middle.

This allows you to carry it, and indeed it is pretty strong meaning you could easily huff the case around like this.
