Cooler Master Storm Enforcer
Cooler Master has been busy updating their chassis lineup of late, and we’ve had the opportunity to look at several of these new cases. Their Storm lineup is not only a great marketing move into a lucrative gamer market, but it’s also proved to be producing some very nice towers that showcase some great designs and features. Gone are the days where companies could install a couple LED fans and a windowed panel and call a "gamer" case, and it’s nice to see that people have wizened up to that.
The Storm Enforcer does not disappoint in that regard, with a sharp look that strikes a great balance between sleek simplicity and aggressive undertones. It is an aesthetic that certainly has gamer appeal, but the feature set and looks will likely appeal to a wider audience, since a good case is a good case, whether it’s marketed to gamers or not. This bodes well for Cooler Master, but also for consumers looking for greater flexibility and quality in a well-rounded mid-tower setup.
Functionally speaking, the Enforcer has a tidy and well-organized interior that shows attention has been paid to the details that make a difference. The feature set here is innovative outstanding, which is often a rarity in mid-tower case design, offering some flexible cooling options, and versatility of control with the system setup and operation. Clearly, this case is not targeted to the modders in the crowd; it is squarely set on the gamer market, and in that sense the Enforcer is a very well-designed and solid case.
With an approximate price tag of $90 USD, the Storm Enforcer will sit in a mid-level market segment that features a few popular competitors that also target gamers, though the Enforcer will be in a much better price, in some instances by $30. When the price is factored in, it is an excellent deal. Showcasing a great combination of sharp aesthetics, extensive features, and outstanding quality, the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer is an great choice for a mid-tower case.
