I think the HAF 932 was the better looking case, but they're both as ugly as sin.

I am getting of hardcore pre-modded cases. This (just like the HAF) have potential, you just need to be game enough to try it lol.

Meal Mesh does not make it "industrial" or "weapon like" it makes it look retarded.

If you see look at the price for either UK or US there has been a mistake, you've accidently shown [eurl] at the end.

Now you either have written it wrong or that is a custom prefix for url's as i most forum or blogging software has it set at [url] but hey whatever.

This case is one ugly duckling.

I definitely prefer the HAF 932. This is an ugly case, the HAF is pretty decent imo.

if you turn around the top 240mm fan to an intake, ala ft-01 how are the temps then?

Not as ugly as the prototype, but no thanks.

After viewing so many cases here I don't think I will find a better case then my current old lady the pc70. I was on the lookout for a 'smaller' case then the pc70. I liked the cosmos but is just as big as the pc70 and it got a door, I hate doors see. I liked the HAF it was also huge. Then i see this case. I guess, counting the bays it is also a huge case.

My conclusion is, that I would have to design my own case, because after two years of looking for a good normal priced case it has brought me nowhere...

It makes an Antec Nine Hundred look sophisticated.

i wish that big knob can control the volume.....

Sorry, but this is truly one ugly case imho.
This Sniper will never find a place at my home, that's for sure.

[eurl] is a custom tag which only works on the main site, not the forums. It's the same functionality as [url] but opens in a new window (or tab), and is used for external URLs.

I would have thought normal HTML encoding wouldn't be too difficult.

Because you touch yourself at night.

Yes that's right, they know.

I actually like the general look of it, and if I were in need of case with this look I'd consider it, but personally for me....steel = fail.

gahh! What were they thinking :(

MASSIVE KNOB!

ahem. Sorry, but what the hell is with that thing? It's pig ugly, 4 times bigger than it needs to be, and draws attention to the equally horrible power button.

Oh, and those feet? Anyone remember those Fiendish Feet yoghurts that came in pots with monster faces and feet? That's what they remind me of.

There is another new one called the Storm that does away with the knob and adds a more pronounced carry handle on the top. I like the Storm.

and on the Cooler Master website:

Can we get a Bit-Tech look at it? Please?

Yep - CM Storm range has three models coming - the Sniper is just the first. We'll be reviewing all 3 in time :)

I'm still wondering about the test method: the passive graphics card has it's cooling on the other side than usual. Doesn't that make the results versy specific for this configuration? most people have a card with the cooler facing away from the cpu cooler, and that could make quite a difference. And maybe even significant in case design. So maybe this card is just not the average one and thus giving strange results?
[USRF]Obiwan 14th January 2009, 11:34 Quote
I agree with Bluefan, I think most of the people use a active cooled Videocard and not a passive. I think a passive videocard should be used for testing in for example a HTPC case. Or test both. you must have at least a box full of active cooled videocards in the BT test department you can use.
