Building With The Storm Sniper
Cooler Master includes a manual, a 5.25”-to-3.5” external drive adapter, a 3.5”-to-2.5” or -1.8” internal drive adapter, replacement grommets and feet, and several screw packs in its Storm Sniper installation kit.
One of the Storm Sniper’s bay panels features a removable center section for use with 3.5” drives and the above adapter brackets.
Hard drives slip into a slide bracket easily, with rubber-mounted pins, preventing the transmission of noise-producing vibrations to the chassis. The internal cage holds five of these brackets, though our test required only one.
The Storm Sniper proves that an adequately-sized mid-tower can have more than enough space for full-sized components, easily swallowing our test configuration.
Blue lighting looks great, but can also be turned off without disabling fans.
