Continuing with its tradition of revolutionary design and cutting edge technology, CM Storm surpasses the competition with the Trooper chassis. The CM Storm Trooper contains a wealth of features coveted by most gaming enthusiasts, including USB 3.0, external 2.5” and two 90 degree rotatable HDD cages for easier hard-drive installation.
The CM Storm Trooper is the first in its class to include an ultra-strong carrying handle; allowing a gamer to travel with the finest system configurations available with relative ease.
Trooper includes features that are often coveted by gaming enthusiasts in that it has full dust filter coverage, a fan controller, an external SSD drive hot-swap dock and two uniquely designed modular hard drive cages.
These features give CM Storm Trooper the ability to adapt to configurations ranging from workstation to water-cooled gaming configurations easily.
The CM Storm Trooper is the first full tower chassis with two 90 degrees rotatable 4-in-3 HDD modules. This includes the attached panels that hold the cages in place. The bottom SSD drive cage can also be removed to allow space for a 240mm watercooling radiator or 2 x 120mm fans.
There are two extremely sturdy handles that lay beneath the top façade that are directly attached to the steel frame. Adding to this rugged build, the exterior is covered in a damage-resistant rubberized coating that will protect the case from damage or scratches during transport.
The included front panel connections and controls provide a user with the ability to make on-the-fly changes to fan speed and case LEDs while USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, and audio connections are also provided as an added means of convenience. This is topped off by a 2.5” HDD/SSD X-dock that makes mounting an extra drive as easy as loading a Blu-ray/DVD.
The CM Storm Trooper supports high-end hardware including XL-ATX board, multiple GPUs in SLI or Crossfire, and up to 14 hard-drives for future upgrades.

Continuing with its tradition of revolutionary design and cutting edge technology, Cooler Master Storm surpasses the competition with the Trooper chassis.

The CM Storm Trooper is the first full tower with a carrying handle for easy transport.
With this case, you will have plenty of room for ALL types of parts. Though admittedly, if you want to arrange the drive cages, you will have a bit of a struggle ahead of you. Spots for fans on the side, the bottom, the top and the back and also fine mesh screens to trap dust, reducing overall dust inside the computer. Buy this case, and keep it. Any new system you build, re-use this case and sell your old parts. For fans on the bottom, be sure you have screws that won't block the screens.
