Unlike other computer chassis manufacturers, Cooler Master casings tend to be more conservative in design and the new Enforcer is no different. That is not to say that it is an unattractive casing, but compared to some of the more outlandish gaming casings we’ve seen, the Enforcer, in comparison, looks markedly restrained and muted.

The old Sniper had plastics that felt a little cheap, but the new Enforcer exhibits none of that. On a whole, the Enforcer, which is made out of a combination of 0.7mm thick SECC steel and ABS plastics, feels well made and solidly constructed.

Looking a little more closely, the thing that grabbed our attention was the presence of two USB 3.0 ports, which we think is very fitting for a casing that is targeted at enthusiasts. Also, we are glad to learn that these USB 3.0 ports are supported via proper USB 3.0 headers, so there’s no need to mess about with unnecessary adapters which add clutter inside the casing.

The CM Storm Enforcer has a restrained but strong looking front profile. Behind the front cover hides four external 5.25-inch drive bays, of which one can be converted for use with 3.5-inch floppy disk drives.

The Enforcer has four USB ports, two of which are USB 3.0 compatible. There are also jacks for headphones and microphones. The reset button, if you are wondering, is hidden behind the front cover.

Around the top, we can see that there's space to install an additional 200mm fan. Also, the area just behind the ports is handy for resting external hard drives.

On the right, a transparent plastic panel lets users peek inside to admire their components. The 'gills' complement the front chassis design to ensure the entire casing's design has a good follow through - something that's not often seen.

Pretty standard fare round the back as we find grommets for liquid cooling setups and a large 120mm rear exhaust fan.
