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 have an Antec 300 and I think it's a fantastic case for the price ($52 with price matching). It came with one 140mm top fan and one 120mm back fan. There is a removable dust filter on the front which really easy to remove and clean. You can add two 120mm fans on the front and one 120mm fan on the side. Unfortunately the side fan doesn't have a dust filter but I think I may just go to canadian tire and buy some mesh or something.

I added just one on the front and one on the side and my CPU peaks at 55-56C full load and my GPU peaks at ~65 when gaming.

If I had $200 to spend on a case though, I'd get the Coolermaster Cosmos S or something from Lian-li. Bit-tech did a review on the sniper and they seem to like quite a bit. bit-tech.net | Review - Cooler Master Sniper.

Just finished building my new computer with the following spec :

- Cooler master Storm Sniper case
- Antec 750TX psu
- Intel Q9650 + Vendetta 2 cooler + Ocz Freeze
- Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P motherboard
- 8gig Mushkin Redline
- 2 x 640GB WD Black Caviar 32 MB.
- Pionner DVR-216 Burner
- Bfg GTX 260 Maxcore video card
- Logitech G9 + G15 Mouse/Keyboard

Since it's my first build i tryed to do some cable management, it's my first try so maybe it can be better with some more time.



Here is the back the case... It look like ass, too much cable to hide..!! I had trouble to put the back panel!!

Can it cause problem to have all wire like this ? (all squeeze)
