Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker Computer Case Review

Cases & PSU/Cases by stefan @ 2012-11-26

The CM Storm Stryker is a revised version of the previously launched Trooper, now coming in a white color and a nice side window. The air cooling performance is quite impressive even in the default configuration, the HDD cages position can be switched on our liking and the case also supports multiple fan configurations. A small accessory box can be found at the bottom of the enclosure, X-DOCK allows quick installation of 2.5'' drives in the front and the included fan controller can drive up to 4x120mm fans.

Packaging, A Closer Look Part I

The CM Storm Stryker is shipped inside a large cardboard box, and the sides we will see many details regarding the case:





After opening the top of the enclosure we will reveal the case, fully protected on the top and sides:




The case is fully wrapped inside a transparent plastic bag and on the sides it is enclosed in polystyrene:




Cooler Master proposes with the Stryker a white/black theme and features a side window to reveal all our system goodies; a ventilation grill is also present on the sides, which acts as intake as default:




On the bottom side of the case, we will spot multiple filters, which are easy to remove and clean; the first filter can be found on the back side of the case, the PSU area:





The second bottom filter is more in the front, can be removed the same way and is ideal when installing two extra fans on the bottom of the case (not included initially):





The 4 feet add a lot of style to the case and look similar to the ones we have also seen on the ATCS 840 behemoth (no longer in production):
