Cooler Master has been pushing out some seriously nice cases recently, from the ATCS-840 to the HAF-932 to the cosmos series. They are all well thought out and built. But Cooler Master was not happy with just those under its belt. At the beginning of the year they launched a new series; the CMStorm series. This added a whole new level of design and quality to an already impressive lineup. We have gotten a hold of the Cooler Master CMStorm Sniper gamers chassis and are putting it through our ringer to see if it can live up to our standards and if it is worth your hard earned money.
The box that the Sniper ships in is of the usual black and sexy type. It has the stock half faded images of the case and includes the image of a Swat Sniper holding a Barrett Light .50 Sniper Rifle in case you did not get the reference.
The box contains enough print to get you informed on what the CMStorm Sniper has to offer and enough images to give you the overall looks of the case. The packaging also has enough protection to keep the Sniper safe from drop and tip damage. I dropped the case from its usual height and when it came to the “kick” part the box did not move but the cardboard did push in a little and tear. I would be concerned more about puncture damage than drop damage with this one; although that really applies to any case packaging.
On the green side - The Styrofoam and plastic wrapper are not biodegradable but can be recycled if taken to the proper facilities. The cardboard box is not really reusable as the shape does not lend to packing common items.
