Cooler Master CM Storm Trooper reviewed - Back and Bottom panel

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: For Gamers

The rear panel has nine expansion card holes, which means it will allow for three or four dual slot cards in CrossFire or SLI. The tenth, vertical expansion slot has a special mouse and keyboard anti-theft system. The vertical slot can also be used for CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps lighting) or similar. The rear panel holds a single 14cm fan.

The PSU is mounted on the bottom with an external dust filter below it. We had some minor issues with removing the filter as 2cm, which is the distance from the floor to the case, was not enough to reach underneath the case and release the filter. So, you’ll have to lift the case a bit. The same goes for the other, larger filter on the bottom of the case.

The feet are made of plastic with anti-vibration rubber coating underneath. Although the feet seem fine, we were surprised to see them made of plastic rather than metal.
