It wasn't all that long ago when I was given the opportunity to have a look at the HAF 922 from Cooler Master. When the box arrived at the door, my better half was taken by the looks and her words to me were "is that case for me?". I chuckled at first, as she looked like a kid at Christmas when she asked, so I went online to see what the case was all about. After a bit of research I found the chassis did seem to offer some nice options and had great airflow incorporated already. As I reviewed the chassis, I found a few more plusses about the chassis, but the things that stick in my head are that the door's alignment was off when trying to close them, and the lack of interior "blackness". Had those issues been addressed, I think Cooler Master would have hit the nail on the head.
I am proud to say that the HAF 922 spent a few months sitting at the side of her desk, with the red glow of the LED fans. And the thing I liked the most, is once the doors were off, the case was a real pleasure to work in and swap hardware without any undue "procedures" or "special ways" of manipulating the case to get things in and out. In my mind, as the HAF was almost spot on, I am going to be comparing this chassis directly to my HAF experiences and it sets the bar pretty high.
This time Cooler Master has sent the Storm Sniper Black Edition chassis for us to have a look at. My first impressions are that the Sniper is an expanded take on the main HAF 922 chassis, as you will see as the review progresses. They do however separate the two both visually and with the options available between the two. Things like looks and portability are things that all gamers look for, especially if going to LAN events is your cup of tea. Let's get down to the facts and see just how well the scope is dialed in on the Sniper Black Edition chassis.
