CM Storm Sniper cabinet up for pre-orde


What many of you might know have picked up on as yet, is that Cooler Master is set to launch a new range of products for gamers under the CM Storm brand. The first product has now turned up for pre-order on a German website called Caseking.de.

As you might have guessed, we're talking about a case here and it's called the Sniper. It's been developed in parallel by a different team at Cooler Master and it shows. Although it's easy to see that some of the inspiration is coming from Antec while other parts have never been seen before.

It's a fairly big steel and plastic case with five 5.25in drive bays (of which one will take a 3.5in drive) and five internal 3.5in drive bays. It's got a bottom mounted PSU and it comes with a top mounted 230mm fan, front and side mounted 200mm fans, as well as a rear mounted 120mm fan. At the front top of the case is a built in fan controller which has a button in the middle of it that allows you to switch off the LEDs that are built into the fans which is a pretty neat feature.

As Cooler Master is targeting gamers with this case, it also has a new feature never before seen. It's a simple cable lock which consists of a vertical add-on card slot and a rear bracket with little cut-outs in it. This allows you to put your mouse and keyboard cables through the cut-outs in the bracket and by installing the bracket into the slot, you've secured your peripherals to the case. The slot can of course be used with anything else, such as extra USB ports or whatever kind of bracket your motherboard comes with, which could be handy if you've used up your other expansion slots.

Next to the fan controller knob you'll also find an oversized power button, four USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire port, one eSATA port and a mic and a headphone jack. All the drive bays an expansion card slots are also tool-less to make it easy to install you gear in the Sniper.

The downside? Well, the planned retail price got a bit higher than what we were told a while back, so you're looking at 149.95 including 19% VAT in Germany.

You can pre-order the case here and you can also watch an interview there by Kode 5 with David J from Cooler Master and there's a short introduction video to the Sniper case plus some additional pictures of the case itself.

^^Potential?

Nothing need potential. The best mods I've seen are all based on the most austere-looking Lian-Li cases ever.
