Cooler Master has been at the forefront of the PC aftermarket virtually since its inception, and they have often set the standard to which other manufacturers aspire. Recently, Cooler Master has released several different cases aimed at a couple of different audiences, and we've had the pleasure to review a few of them. This time they've sent us an example of their CM Storm Enforcer chassis that they classify as a mid-tower gaming chassis. It has a distinctive look and an impressive cooling scheme, along with some other interesting features. Follow along as we determine whether this Enforcer can muscle its way into a crowded gaming chassis market. Cooler Master was founded with the mission of providing the industry's best thermal solutions. Since its establishment a decade ago, the company has remained faithful to this mission, emerging as a world leader in products and services for companies dealing with devices where heat issues must be resolved. In pursuing this mission, Cooler Master is absolutely committed to delivering solutions that precisely meet customer requirements for features, performance, and quality. Moreover, we strive to be a reliable long-term partner for our customers that they can truly depend on.
The Cooler Master CM Storm Enforcer aims to offer an excellent chassis for building your own sturdy, well designed and good looking gaming PC.Cooler Master is a well-respected brand in the PC chassis market and its specialist gaming brand, CM Storm, is gaining new converts by the day, thanks to high build quality and products aimed at gamers and PC enthusiasts. The Cooler Master CM Storm Enforcer continues this trend, going head-to-head with other low priced mid-towers, such as the NZXT H2 and the Antec Dark Fleet DF-35.And is a solidly built mid-tower designed to house the latest and most powerful tech around. If you're putting down serious money on graphics cards, motherboards and other top-of-the-range components then you don't want to stick them in a cheap and tacky case. You want something that will show off the quality of your PC. That doesn't mean you should spend money you don't have to on features you don't need, however. This is where value mid-towers such as the Cooler Master CM Storm Enforcer come in.
Our initial impression of the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer wasn’t great. Though the case is only $90, we can’t help but feel wary running our hands over a lightweight plastic front panel. It’s just instinct. But after spending some time with the Enforcer, we actually came away impressed—mostly. The Enforcer comes with two USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports—with an internal header, which is uncommon at this price point. Other welcome details: a removable dust filter, four toolless optical bays, six toolless hard drive bays, two 2.5-inch bays, seven standard PCI expansion slots plus an extra one suitable for a fan or light controller, and a large CPU-cooler backplane cutout. The Enforcer looks a little bland until it powers up and the 20cm front fan lights up its red LED, which contrasts well with the case’s black trim. The Enforcer also comes stock with a 12cm exhaust fan, and includes additional mounting holes up top. The inside of the chassis feels roomy enough, and you can remove the top hard drive cage to accommodate longer graphics cards. For $90 you get a solid mid-tower that’s spacious and offers a broad range of cooling options, and looks good doing so.
Cooler Master’s CM Storm line is geared towards gamers and rightfully so. The line is made up of cases, gaming peripherals, gaming surfaces, and notebook coolers. For some reason we here at ThinkComputers have not had a chance to take a look at any of the CM Storm cases. Today however we will get that chance with the recently released CM Storm Enforcer case. This case has a mean look to it hence the name Enforcer. It also features USB 3.0 connectivity, room for 2.5-inch drives and great cable management. Let’s check it out! Special thanks to Cooler Master for providing us with the CM Storm Enforcer Case to review. The CM Storm Enforcer comes in a nice retail box that has a nice photo of the case in action on the front. On the back many of the features are detailed. The specification are listed on the side of the box. Opening the box up the case inside was nicely protected by large pieces of Styrofoam and a plastic bag. The CM Storm Enforcer has an all black design, which has been the theme with all of the CM Storm cases. This case is currently not available in any other colors. This is a mid tower case with the dimension of (W) 9.0 x (H) 19.0 x (D) 20.6 inch. The case does give the Enforcer name justice with its mean look.
It almost seems that since the dawn of high-end custom gaming machines, Cooler Master has been there to support the never-ending market of keeping our systems cool. Recently seen in the news, pictures have been speckled about the Internet regarding the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer. Back in 2009, we reviewed an original Storm Scout from Cooler Master. It performed well for its price and offered a sleek, stealthy look along with a comprehensive list of features. This Storm series could easily follow in the footsteps of the prolific HAF line of cases, which offers great performance, quiet operation, and loads of room to house the latest components — including the giant video cards of today's market. Personally, I hadn't seen much or heard much about the Storm Enforcer, but I do know what to expect in regards to the Storm/Scout line of computer cases. This automatically assumes a sleek, mid tower case with probably a door on the front panel, tool less features, and easy wire management. After reviewing quite a few Cooler Master cases, I have been, for lack of a better expression, "turned on" to Cooler Master's ongoing improvement of their designs and continually improve its high-end cases.
