Cooler Master Storm Trooper Full Tower Case ReviewTue, Dec 06, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Inside the CM Storm Trooper
With the side panel off the Storm Trooper we can get a look at the inside. It looks tight at first glance, but it’s quite large. The maximum cooler height the Storm Trooper can accommodate is 7.3” or 186mm; that’s one tall CPU cooler. The Storm Trooper also handles video cards up to 12.7” or 322mm.
The power supply area has two rubber pads that the power supply can sit on to absorb vibrations.
Above that is the expansion slot covers. They are all vented and mount with thumb screws.
In front of the power supply area is a 2.5” drive cage that can hold four 2.5” drives.
In front is the tool box. In the box is where some of the accessories are packed.
The box can be locked into the case with a small pad lock to secure items.
If you remove the 2.5” drive cage and the tool box you can put a 240mm radiator in the bottom.
From the bottom of the case to the main drive cages is 3.5” so there is plenty of room for thick radiators.
The main drive cage area consists of two drive cages that hold four 2.5/3.5” hard drives each. The drive cages come mounted in such a way that they run side to side. They can be turned independently of one another, to run front to back.
The cage is held into the case with two thumb screws; with those removed it can be slid out of the case frame.
