CM Storm is the gaming division from Cooler Master, and their latest full-tower case, the Trooper, is a true monster with nine expansion slots. Let’s see what you should expect from this new release.
The left-side panel has a mesh, where you can install two 120 mm fans. This mesh is also used as air intake for the fans that come attached to the hard drive cages, since these cages come installed perpendicular to the case. So, in the case’s default configuration, air enters from the left panel and exits out of the right panel. You can, however, rotate the hard drive cages, so the fans pull air from the front panel instead of the left panel, as we will show later. Both side panels come with air filters, and you can move them in order to increase or decrease the size of the holes on the mesh to choose between more airflow or better filtering.
