Excellent price, awesome all black finish backed by the Cooler Master name.

Could use some better cable routing and an additional option to change case LED colors would be nice.


What can we say about the Sniper that can not be seen? The Cooler Master Storm Sniper Black Edition is a beautiful case that builds upon an already popular Sniper chassis. For a retail price of $159.99, the Sniper Black is a steal of a deal. There were some minor flaws with our sample, but we are sure that Cooler Master will correct those errors.

We were impressed with the sleek, matte black look of the interior and exterior. Having an option to turn off the LEDs is key to giving the consumer a choice. We would like to see additional colors included. Cable sleeving and more cable routing would be appreciated, though not necessary. Thermaltake has an ingenious fan switch for the front side panel that we would love to see incorporated in other manufacturers cases such as Cooler Master. That tiny switch just makes life easier. In all, the accessories and case are very impressive. We recommend that you take a look at the Cooler Master Storm Sniper Black Edtion when looking to make your next case purchase.

One of the best things about Cooler Master’s Storm series is that the design and influences come straight from the gaming community. With the help of groups like KODE5, mousesports and TEAM FNATIC, CM has an amazing lineup of gamer quality products. We look forward to more amazing gear from our friends at Cooler Master.
