CM Storm Enforcer Overview
The CM Storm Enforcer has an all black design, which has been the theme with all of the CM Storm cases. This case is currently not available in any other colors. This is a mid tower case with the dimension of (W) 9.0 x (H) 19.0 x (D) 20.6 inch. The case does give the Enforcer name justice with its mean look.
This mean look is because the front of the case extrudes out. This part of the case is actually a front door that hides the 4 5.25-inch drive bays. It easily opens up to the right to reveal the drive bays. Some people like front doors and others do not, I think that they keep the front of your case nice and clean. On the front of the door there is a small CM storm logo.
Towards the bottom of the case there are honeycomb ventilation holes for the 200mm red LED intake fan. Up at the top of the case you have all of your front panel connections. They include 2 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, and audio connections. It is good to see both USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, since USB 3.0 started getting more and more popular we are seeing less and less of eSATA and Firewire ports.
On the top of the case there is a stop where you could put a portable hard drive, your cell phone, maybe some headphones or other items. I like that many cases have these spots now, especially gaming cases as there is not a lot of room to put things places at LAN parties. Also on the top of the case there is a honeycomb opening for an optional cooling fan, which is not included. In this spot you can fit a 200mm fan or 2 120mm fans.
On the side panel there is a pretty nice sized window that will let people see whats inside your case. It extrudes out from the case a little bit and has some accents which gives the case some style.
Looking at the back of the case everything is pretty much standard. You do have 3 water cooling grommets towards the top of the case. There is also a 120mm exhaust fan, giving you 2 fans total included with the case. You can see from the back of the case that the power supply is positioned at the bottom of the case. This is pretty much the standard these days.
