Exterior Look

The CM Storm Enforcer draws from a design that is reminiscent of a futuristic or even a biological armor. It focuses on cleaner lines that preserve an aggressive styling that is a worthy addition to the CM Storm product line. A nearly full-length side panel window allows users to show off their liquid cooling, custom wiring, and cable management with pride. This is accompanied by an interior coated entirely by a high quality black finish.

There is little doubt that the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer is aimed at the PC enthusiast and gamer but will still look nice sitting on the desk in a home office and will speak to your personality.

Please take notice of the 8 expansion slots. As mentioned, this is where Cooler Master’s Storm Guard can be installed. Storm Guard works by running the USB cables of peripherals (i.e. mouse, keyboard, etc.) through the notches and plugging them in to a desired port. The Storm Guard is then secured to an available expansion slot. This helps prevent theft of your peripherals while off at LANs and other events.

Three water cooling holes with rubber grommets, 120mm rear exhaust fan, and a bottom mounting PSU cutout rounds out the features found on the rear panel of the CM Storm Enforcer.

The windowed panel on the left side is just large enough to show off those high powered components.

Notice how the right side panel is more of a “Plain Jane” design; I was hoping to find the panel that extrudes slightly which would be nice for our cable management opportunities.

The top 200mm fan is optional but as you can see the Enforcer comes pre-drilled to accept fans of various sizes as well as a 240mm Rad for your water cooling if you decide to go for the extreme cooling. I really like the tray area at the forward edge of the top panel, nice area to put your flash drives, cell phone, car keys

Here on the front control panel you have USB 3.0 ports on each side as well as a couple USB 2.0 ports and the Mic and Headphone jack at the center. The main power switch is located here, centered below the I/O connections.

The bottom continues the all-black theme and shows the dust filter for the power supply.
