Introduction

Sometimes it’s tough to search for that perfect chassis. Whether you are looking for design or functionality, finding the perfect case poses a number of challenges. We have the opportunity today to take a look at the new Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker Chassis to see how close it comes to that “Holy Grail” of balancing looks and usefulness. We must say, the unique touches, in both form and functionality, that Cooler Master has added into the Stryker really caught our attention. As we move further into this review you will see why. Before we delve deeper into the versatility of this chassis we will talk a little about Cooler Master’s design aesthetic with the Stryker Chassis.

Then, when we discuss the feature-set of the Stryker Chassis, you will see that Cooler Master really put a great deal of thought into this case. From the sturdy carry handle at the top, to the external SSD hot-swap dock, the case attempts to offer a multitude of features. It even has the ability to be used as a workstation that is air cooled, or you can configure it to be a hardcore gaming rig that is completely water cooled. Additionally, the sturdy full tower steel construction frame will allow you to move this around without any structural problems.

Now that we have got you intrigued, lets get down to the nitty gritty of our review. First, here is a statement from Cooler Master.

 

 

“Cooler Master was founded with the mission of providing the industry’s best thermal solutions. Since its establishment a decade ago, the company has remained faithful to this mission, emerging as a world leader in products and services for companies dealing with devices where heat issues must be resolved.”

 Lets take a look at the package and specifications next.

    How would you rate this case to the NZXT switch 810?

      Both the 810 and Stryker are good cases, While each one of them have different options and features to make them different both cases IMO is equally as good. They are priced right about the same. The questions to determine which case would be better is what are you plans?? What components do you plan on using?? This will better determine what case is better for your need.

      But if you rate these cases side by side they are pretty equal with both having its pros and cons.

        I plan to do a water cooling system and the mobo is a e atx. I had plan on using the gun metal switch but was interested in this case, i like the handle, i was just wondering which case you liked better.
