Final Thoughts and Conclusions
I have very little (if anything) bad to say about the Cooler MasterSniper Black Edition. This is one very nice case. It has loads of roomand is relatively light. It gives the end user the ability to removeunwanted items, add in needed items, and reconfigure fan locations. Asopen as the case is it is very quiet; on low you doní»t even know thesystem is running. I turned it off once by accident by hitting thepower button because I had the LEDs off and I thought the system wasoff. With the case on high it will be noticeable, but I doní»t see youhaving to turn up the TV due to it.
The LED lights are not excessively bright, but do have a nice glowto them. The ability to turn them off is very nice for those of us thatdoní»t want or need a night light. The Force200 led fans come in twocolors: stock blue R4-LUS-10AB-GP and red R4-LUS-10AR-GP.
The StormGuard bracket is a nice little security feature to be usedin tandem with the lock on case. It may be inconvenient to set up at aLAN, but not nearly as much as coming back to your table to find yournice expensive keyboard, mouse, and head set have walked off.
The Sniper does have one drawback to it: its price. The Sniper can be found for $181.29 plus shipping. With a little digging on Google I was able to find it for $150 shipped.With the addition of the extra 200mm fan, blacked out interior, themouse pad, and the Sniperí»s standard features and build quality, to meití»s worth every dime. In the current state of the economy though, itmay be a hard sell.
Legit Bottom Line: The Sniper is a very nice case that will make any enthusiast happy, if their wallet can take the hit.
