PC Games Hardware has the exclusive about an upcoming Cooler Master case designed by gamers, for gamers. The case is called Sniper and it's the first of a new product series called Storm. The Sniper looks a bit like the Cosmos case but without the handles, a complete black look and meshed sidepanels for better airflow. You can check out more photos of the Sniper prototype over here.
Nevertheless some features can be recognized: The Sniper will have two handles integrated into the lid. The lid also hosts a control panel. Among Power and Reset button there is another specialty: A rotary switch can be used to dim or switch off the inside illumination of the case. Furthermore it is said to be possible to connect fans to this control. Four USB, Firewire, E-SATA and headphone ports are located in the lid, too.
The inside of the Sniper is black. The fittings for plug-in cards are colored in the mock-up, but this will be changed almost certainly. The lid, the floor and the front of the case have many aerating holes, which are supposed to enable a good air movement and offer possible positions for fans or a radiator. The motherboard tray has the same features as the one of the HAF 932 (Coolermaster HAF 932: Official introduction of the new high-airflow case): For improved cable management and an easier installation of CPU coolers with a backplate, there are many openings next to and below the motherboard.
