Our installation section of this review will include the following list of hardware.

Hardware:

  • Foxconn BloodRAGE X58 Motherboard
  • Intel Core i7 920 Processor
  • 3GB Corsair Dominater GT Memory
  • Cooler Master V6 GT
  • ASUS GTX 470 Graphics Card
  • 4 x 1TB HDD
  • 1 x 2TB HDD
  • OCZ Vertex 2 100GB SSD
  • Samsung BDROM/DVD-RW
  • Thermaltake 875W Power Supply

Installing your components in the Enforcer will be typical, as with most hardware installations. Cooler Master has made life a bit easier by providing tool less 5.25″ and 3.5″ bay installation hardware. We chose to stuff our case with lots of HDD’s to show what a setup would look like and how easy it is to do. Our suggestion is to remove and install your 2.5″ drives in the provided cage prior to installing the PSU to avoid having to work around all the wiring. The Enforcer comes equipped with cable routing holes in the motherboard tray and the extra room you have behind the mobo tray allows for stuffing all unwanted cables away from view. All the hardware you need to mount the motherboard is included with this case.

As you can see from the installation shots, access to the back of the motherboard behind the CPU is wide open. In most cases we have worked with in the past, the access hole was not large enough which ended up covering access to on part of the CPU Cooler mount. All of our components fit nicely inside the Enforcer. We were left with plenty of room for expansion. Water cooling could easily fit inside this case, as well as multi-GPU configurations.

With our installation section complete, we move on to our conclusion.
