Inside The Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Mid Tower Case
With the steel door panels removed we can now see what's going on inside of the Enforcer. Right off the bat I see a similarity to the CM690II, but yet there are enough subtle differences to differentiate the two.
The optical bays have a switch-like mechanism to latch any of the four drives into place. Covering most of the intake fan is the 4+2 hard drive rack. The top four drives can swivel ninety degrees, or come out altogether to allow for much longer graphics cards. Just to the left of the hard drives is a dual bay rack for 2.5" drives as well.
The motherboard tray is clearly labeled for which holes go to what motherboard along with a "designed by Cooler Master" stamped into the tray. There are six large wiring holes and sixteen, yes, sixteen, places to tie up wiring.
In the back hangs an all black 120mm fan to exhaust the case and draws power from a 3-pin connection, but ships with a Molex adapter attached. The 7+1 vented slots are all held in with thumbscrews.
Looking behind the motherboard tray you can see how all those wiring tabs come into play in allowing full control of your wiring to give you the cleanest finished product as can be imagined.
The wiring from the front I/O is pretty standard with the power, reset and such along with the USB 2.0 connection and audio connectors. What is brand new to me is the direct to motherboard connection that comes attached to the USB 3.0 headers.
The floor of the chassis only has room for the vented area under the power supply since the front two-thirds is taken up with drive bays. There is, however, a thin plastic dust cover that is somewhat easy to remove, as long as the case is tipped over.
