Default Cooler Master Storm Sniper

What do you guys think of the new Cooler Master Storm Sniper case?
It's around the same price as the Antec 1200 (+/-200$) but it look like a very good case!

I actually just watched a review of that case and quite like it, never before I have seen the ability to add so many 120mm fans. Its a great case for guys and girls that LAN, has a lot features to prevent people from stealing things like your mouse or keyboards and you can even lock the side panel. The CM Storm as far as MID-towers is concerned is probably the best case I have seen released lately.

So all in all it has my vote.

Actually i'm looking for a case for my new build (Q9650) that have good cooling, good cable management and easy to remove and clean dust filters. (and under 200$)

I curently own a Antec 900 that i bought for cheap. but want to change it because it do not have cable management, no filters and psu need to be installed upside down.

There is still the new Antec 900 V2 but they do not fix the psu thing along with the 1200.

The only i would change on this new Sniper case is a side window instead on mesh and an black painted interiors.

For the moment i'm really interested unless i can find something better in price range.

This case painted desert storm Camo would be the ultimate!

This case reminds me of a love child between the Cosmos and the 832

If I didn't have such a hard on for tougher cases like the Mountain Mods I'd think about getting one of these for sure! Looks easy to mod without a doubt!

I like it, I think its a step in the right direction.
I just would rather them (case manufacturers in General) would leave the Fan Controllers to us, any one I've seen on a case is usually low quality....(usually being the operative word).

All in all, if I had the coin, I'd consider it for sure.

Just watched Rodney Reynolds' (Yes I know not everyone likes him, but he's thourough in explaining the features) video review, wow lots of good features.
Seems like a great bang for your buck case for sure.
I love the amount of optional fans as well as features like the feet that they present, plus handles are ALWAYS good!

looks like a sexy case to have.
Too bad I just bought CM's HAF case instead :P
Oh well, I like it better...
