The Cooler Master Storm Trooper joins a small group of XL-ATX cases available to fit such large motherboards as the EVGA SR-2.  Not only will it fit extra large motherboards, you can add 14 drives and several 240mm radiators if you so desire in this 250 x 605.6 x 578.5 mm (9.8" x 23.8" x 22.8") case.  With all that space they could fit a lot on the outside of the case as well, a 2.5" external docking station, a pair of USB 3.0 and a pair of USB 2.0 connectors, as well as an eSATA port.    Headphone and microphone jacks and an LED On/Off button for the fans and three LED lights to indicate what setting you have the 6-speed fan controller set to.  Head over to Bjorn3D for a full review.

"Ever since the HAF X was released last year in June, we haven't seen anything too exciting from Cooler Master. The HAF X supported XL-ATX motherboards like the GIGABYTE G1.Assassin or the EVGA Classified, but for extreme enthusiasts, it is a disappointment that there are only a limited number of cases that actually support these motherboards. Users can get modded cases, but that will cost a fortune, so Cooler Master designed a case that is not only very customizable, but also easy to carry around. This is a new addition to Cooler Master's Storm lineup of products, called the Cooler Master Storm Trooper."
