CM Storm Trooper
The CM Storm arm of Cooler Master has brought us some good cases that generally have a couple of small issues but tick most of the boxes you desire. Then came along the CM Storm Trooper. A case that absolutely blew us away with its brilliance. We just couldn't fault it. It looks the part, has loads of space for massive coolers or even water-cooling, plenty of drive bays that are removable if you prefer radiators or extra air cooling, the full monty. It's spectacular. In fact we'd go so far as to say it's possibly the best case from Cooler Master ever. High praise indeed. Read more here or watch the video review here.
Caselabs - Best Chassis Manufacturer of 2011
If you prefer your cases to be limited only by your imagination, and even then you'd struggle to imagine something that you couldn't do, the Caselabs M8 is the one for you. It refined modular cases to a fine art and, despite the hefty price tag we really loved it. Sure it's not the prettiest girl on the block but you have to respect its capabilities as an enthusiast case able to do whatever you desire. Case Labs have done such an awesome job this year that they have left Mountain Mods in the shadows to such a degree that they have made their designs look so out dated they almost look like high school projects. We all actually feel that Case Labs are our Chassis Manufacturer of 2011. Read our review here or watch the full video review here.
