The Cooler Master Storm Trooper Full Tower Case




Departed from the inner packaging, you can see the Trooper is in fact a trooper and took all the hits in transit, but still made it to my door intact and blemish free.




The front bezel is made from plastic and the sides, as well as the edges of the nine mesh covers are coated in the rubber coating leaving a flat finish. The covers are removable from this side of the bezel which is a nice feature we are seeing on more and more cases. The Aluminum Storm logo at the bottom holds a secret behind it, but we will get to that soon enough.




At the very top of the front bezel, just before the transition to the Front I/O panel, you will find a slot for the 2.5" hard drive dock labeled X-DOCK. This allows for easy access to files on any 2.5" drive by sliding one in the slot until the connections click into place.




The Front I/O is surrounded in the rubber coating, offering a pair each of USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, e-SATA, and audio jacks. It also houses the Reset button on the right and the activity LEDs on the left. The large darker plastic if the power button at the top indicator LEDs in the middle, and lighting and fan control at the bottom.




The rest of the top panel offers three sections of ventilation near the rear of the chassis. Between that and the I/O panel is a seriously beefy handle capable of holding up to ninety-five pounds, and has a cushy grip underneath for a comfortable fit in your hand.
