PRESS RELEASE

Capable of lightning fast redeployment, it’s the first in its class to include an ultra-strong carrying handle; allowing a gamer to travel with the finest system configurations available with relative ease. CM Storm Trooper includes features that are popular by gaming enthusiasts in that it has full dust filter coverage, a fan controller, an external SSD drive hot-swap dock and two uniquely designed modular hard drive cages. These features give CM Storm Trooper the ability to adapt to workstation or water-cooled gaming configurations easily.



Cutting-edge Innovations

CM Storm Trooper exterior features a damage-resistant rubberized coating that will protect the case during transport. The included front panel connections and controls provide a user with the ability to make on-the-fly changes to fan speed and case LEDs. Also provided as an added means of convenience on the front panel are USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports and the usual audio connections. This is topped off by a 2.5” HDD/SSD X-dock that makes mounting extra drives as easy as loading a Blu-ray/DVD. Changing settings at a moment’s notice becomes a simple matter of a quick button press with CM Storm Trooper.

Versatile Configurations

CM Storm Trooper holds two modular units that can hold 4 hard drives, and a 120mm fan for cooling. These modular units can be rotated, front to back, side to side or removed completely. CM Storm Trooper is the first chassis to allow fully modular hard drive configuration with no modification required. In addition CM Storm Trooper can support multiple water cooling radiators.

Creatively mounting a vertical water-cooling radiator is possible with the removal of the hard drive cages and panels. CM Storm Trooper has nine expansion slots providing support for multi-GPUs in SLI or Crossfire, space for up to 14 hard drives, and a motherboard tray that supports up to XL-ATX. The Trooper is an ideal mobile arsenal to house and transport the most advanced system and cooling setups.

Cable Management & Storage

A professional cable management look is possible by utilizing the myriad cable tie zones and cable management holes available in the CM Storm Trooper. Smarter and larger placements of these areas allow for efficiently routing cables directly to their intended destinations. In an effort to reduce installation times, a great number of hardware can be mounted tool-free via the use of the included locking mechanisms or trays. A very large CPU heat sink retention hole has been placed in the motherboard tray to allow it to be compatible with most types of CPU and motherboard layouts. Prepare for the unexpected as seasoned operative would with a hidden drawer placed behind a false panel. The bottom panel removes to reveal a storage drawer to keep private effects safe from prying eyes until they are needed.
