OC3D Review: Cooler Master Storm Sniper

With Cooler Master taking storm under their wing, they have come up with something that looks very impressive on paper. We see how it relates to real world performance here.

Modular cables will be shorter so they will need to be in view while non-modular will have lots of spare cables but can easily be hidden around.

I looked at the wire filled image and saw a couple more ways of making it more neater.

Im sure you did, Ive seen a few myself, but if we spent hours doing cable management we'd never get reviews out :S

im not even going to look at any other cases until they come out with a pre powdercoated one with every cable braided. So far the Asaka Eclipse is the closest to being perfect...

One lil thing I'd mention is when you say:

Quote:
Up top we have CM Storm's revolutionary control panel. The big dial controls the speed of all the internal fans, and you push it in to activate/deactivate the LED's on the fans. To the right we have the usual array of ports; 4x USB, Firewire, Headphone + Mic, HDD and Power LED's.
You miss out mentioning the fact it has an esata port on the front panel which is 10 times more noteworthy than a firewire in my opinion

HDD stands for eSATA.
