Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Mid-Tower Gaming Case
The Cooler Master Storm Enforcer is a good case at a value price with some clever innovations. While not all of the ideas work as well they should, none of the problems are cause to overlook the case. The Enforcer also has a lot of features that are usually exclusively seen in more expensive cases.

Page 1: Introduction, About Cooler Master


It wasn't too long ago that USB 3.0 was included in cases almost as an afterthought rather than a real feature. The blame for this lies as much on motherboard manufacturers as it does with case makers, if not more so; but it is still nice to see the proliferation happen to the extent that there are workable solutions for USB 3.0.

That is a double-edged sword, though. Nowadays, USB 3.0 isn't a selling point by itself so much as a prerequisite. To stand out, case makers must continue to innovate, but without pricing themselves out of contention for the budget market.

HardwareLogic has the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer mid-tower case for review, Cooler Master's latest entry in their Storm line of gaming-oriented products. It certainly has an impressive feature set more comparable to $100+ cases than those of budget cases, but do the features bring quality to the equation?
