Their name clearly states their proficiency at creating cooling products, but Cooler Master is well respected for far more when it comes to computer components. I guess it all depends on who you talk to, but I'd say their cooling products might actually take a back seat to their innovative and feature packed computer cases. We've looked at a great number of their cases over the years, and they continue to stay on the leading edge when it comes to aesthetics, ergonomics, and the latest features enthusiasts want.

This review is going to take a look at their Storm Trooper computer case, shown in the promotional image above. Cooler Master has always made products to appeal to computer gamers, but their Storm division was launched in 2008 as a dedicated effort to focus on gear for serious gamers. The Storm division name, coupled with the Trooper model name, may make people think this is a Star Wars themed case, but you'll find no resemblance to the Imperial soldiers in white battle armor here.

Before taking a closer look at the sample provided for review, lets take a look at some published information on the case as taken from the official product page on the Cooler Master Storm website.
