Default Moved my rig into a CM Storm Sniper Black Edition

Hey all, thought I'd share some pics of my new case. I've been shopping for a new one for a little while now and finally decided to go with the Cooler Master Storm Sniper Black Edition (thanks to the video review here on HWC). Build/paint quality on that case are awesome! Here are some shots of the case with my current build. I took some close up shots to give an idea of the room inside, maybe this can help someone...

Nice build, and that looks to be a sweet case.

Very nice build! Looks like there's tons of room in that case, and nice cable management on your part. I haven't ready many reviews on this case, but it looks like there is great air flow through it too.

Looks a lot bigger than I thought it would be, and you did a much better job than I thought could be done with the Sniper case. Good job

Great to hear our video reviews were put to good use :D

Your build looks excellent! Very clean and should proove to be excellent for airflow! Also I love black car wire covers :D Been using that trick myself and it looks SO much better than the array of wire and coloured cables.

Looks great, my bro picked up a storm scout. The sniper looks to have quite a bit more breathing room. I ended up getting a Haf 922 cause the sniper was out of stock.

Thanks guys, the case was actually really easy to work with and yes the car wire covers makes things a lot cleaner looking inside! I wish Cooler Master would have done the same as Corsair did with the 800D by making all the wires black, but gotta take into consideration that the Storm Sniper is half the price...

I actually bought the Storm Scout at first but when I got home I notice that the GTX did barely fit in the case (.5mm longer and they wouldn't) so things were getting too tight especially in SLI so I decided to get the Sniper.

I'm pretty sure that the HAF 922 uses the same chassis as the Sniper, the plastic around the case is obviously not the same tho...
