I was just wondering if anyone has the CoolerMaster Storm Sniper case and also if it is any good for cable management. Feel free to share and pros or cons you have for it as well.

Here's the link just in case:

I don't see it mentioned as often as this one which has almost 5,000 reviews on newegg:

Of course more popular doesn't mean better.

Here's an updated verion of the above which is very similar to the Sniper:

Not having built anything with the sniper, I don't know it in detail . Couldn't go very wrong with either one methinks tho I find the built in fan control on each fan and the air filters on the 902 to be a plus.

Thanks, but how are those two in terms of cable management? I'm pretty OCD when it comes to the cables, so any info on them would be very helpful.

Looks good to me:

Don't get an Antec 300 at all if you care about cable management. The 900 and 1200 are better due to their size but the only way to mount your PSU is upside down? No, thanks.

I disagree with that statement...




Cable management doesn't look to bad to me on my Antec 300 Illusion build.

Thanks, that's all I needed. If it looks awesome, has good airflow, and has good cable management, then I'm set. But if anyone has any cases that meet that criterion and are in about the same price range ($100-150) then feel free to post them.

Hi.

This is one of the most amazing cases I have seen at this price point. There are reviews everywhere online lauding the features of this case.

The original CM 690 was a beautiful case that settled at the ~$70 price point, but CM 690 II shaved a lot of the weaknesses of the original CM 690 off and added a couple new strengths for $30 bucks more.

You made it work. Good for you. But I'm sure you can imagine the lack of cable management holes can be a problem for some builds.
