At this cases price point of $190, the Cooler Master Trooper is an outstanding deal and one of the better full towers you’ll find on the market. "

HardwareSecrets: Golden Award : October 2011

"The CM Storm Trooper, however, has so many outstanding features that we think that it brings a good value for the enthusiast looking for a full-tower case to build the ultimate high-end gaming system. For the average user, however, there are more affordable options on the market."

» Details Must Have Editors Choice : October 2011

"The CM Storm Trooper offers so much that the pricing alomost makes you feel like you are stealing it! - It is the new full tower to buy from Cooler Master!"

» Details : October 2011

"This case is built with LAN gaming in mind. With a built in handle that supports just under 100lbs of weight, it should be able to carry any crazy water cooled triple SLI system you can fit inside. It supports XL-ATX boards, has room for over 14 drives and is hitting the shelves at $189 US at most retailers."

» Details 10/10 : September 2011

"Overall opinion points to one answer, I highly recommend the CM Storm Trooper to any game enthusiasts as well as a customizable workstation."

» Details Crowned Product Award : September 2011

"The Trooper packs a punch when it comes to features.  The unique and groundbreaking features include the 4-in-3 rotatable and removable drive bays, the built-in fan controller, the X-dock 2.5-inch HDD dock, USB 3.0 built-in, rubber cable management hole covers, an integrated carry handle made for 90lbs of weight, numerous radiator and additional cooling options, and many removable fan filters for easy cleaning."

Pro-Clockers Editors Choice : September 2011

"The Trooper consist of a lot of features that you will be hard pressed to find in just one case. One of those features would be the dual carrying handles found in the top of the case. Cooler Master knows that the Trooper is a heavy and even heavier when it is fully built, so the use of two handles makes it easier to carry. And you don’t have to worry about support for all the weight. And it isn’t too often you find handles in a full-size tower."

» Details 9/10 Recommended : September 2011

"This case really shines though when it comes to portability and flexibility.  It is nice being able to choose the orientation of the drive bays to allow for personal preference.  The handle is comfortable to hold and neither the case, nor the handle, flex when picking it up fully loaded with hardware. The Trooper is a case offering that should be near the top of the list for anyone who is in the market for a full tower case.  The MSRP of $189.99 makes it about middle of the range for this sort of case.  The CM Storm Trooper is quite possibly the best case I have reviewed this year, so I am happy to award it 9/10 – LanOC Recommended."

» Details Golden Tachometer : September 2011

"At an MSRP of $189.99, the Storm Trooper is about the price of Cooler Master's various HAF series cases. While more expensive than most mid-tower cases, the price is actually pretty good for a full tower cases at this level, undercutting those like the Thermaltake Level 10 GT and the various Silverstone and Lian Li cases by over a hundred dollars. There are cheaper full tower cases available, of course, but the Storm Trooper provides an excellent combination of vaule and function. "

Hardwarecanucks: Dam Good : September 2011

"With a number of now-legendary cases under their belt, Cooler Master has been known for understanding what gamers and enthusiasts want in their cases. The new Storm Trooper is a full tower case that's poised to continue this tradition and is not only packed with features but it comes in at a very reasonable price as well."

» Details Furious 5 of 5 : September 2011

"We're going to make a bold statement and say that the CM Storm Trooper is the best looking case we have ever seen. The overall styling has perfect lines to complement the features and yet allows them to blend in with exceptional balance. A great example of this is the carrying handles."

» Details Recommended : September 2011

"On top of portability, the Cooler Master Storm also includes features such as damage resistant rubberized outer surfaces, an impressive top mounted control panel, support for up to 14 SSDs, ample room for all of today's largest components and accommodation for multiple water-cooling configurations. All of this makes the Storm Troop an ideal case for any gamer, and at $189 it is well below the price of other high-end cases such as the Corsair 800D or Thermaltake Level 10 GT."

» Details Golden Bear : September 2011

"The Cooler Master Storm Trooper chassis is definitely a recommended case for enthusiasts that go to gaming events. For a price of $189.99, the CM Storm Trooper is definitely worth what it offers. The CM Storm Trooper earns the Bjorn3D Golden Bear Award."
