The Packaging

With a background image of soldiers on the move, any war genre FPS gamer can relate to the packaging. Over the top is a large image of the front, top and left side of the Trooper along with the CM Storm logo, and the large font splashed across the bottom with the case name.

The red logo carries over to this side from the front, and offers a look at the right side of the Trooper. By the name near the bottom there are three icons denoting that the Trooper is strong, secure, and offers easy control over the chassis at the push of a button.

The back of the Trooper packaging is where you get some idea of what is offered in the back, inside the case, and on the front as far as options and features of each section. Covering the market, Cooler Master offers explanations in eight other languages too.

Spinning the box one last time we run into a through specifications chart above a sticker denoting optional additional components. Various power supplies, passive, regular, and active, and many wattage options from 500W on up to 1000W, and even an option for a windowed version which I have yet to actually see are all included with check boxes on that sticker.

The box looked to be in pretty good shape, but the Styrofoam caps covering the front and back of the chassis tell the tale of some mistreatment in transit. These caps along with a foam based padding line the case to keep scratches at bay, as long as the caps are the only thing broken. Doing a thorough examination of the chassis I am pleased to say that the caps were the only thing to be damaged, the case arrived in perfect condition. The instruction manual was shipped outside of the packaging, so if you don't find yours right away, look in the box, it's likely there.
