The hard drive trays have rubber-isolated mounting pegs to help reduce vibration and noise. They snap easily over the drive with no tools required. You will need a screwdriver to mount any additional fans, but Cooler Master supplies two different lengths of screws. A longer set to handle the large 200mm fans, which seem to be around 30mm thick, and two sets of shorter screws for these standard 120mm x 25mm fans.

The Storm Sniper easily handles even full-sized ATX motherboards with plenty of room to spare. There is lots of extra space left over to route cables and handle larger cards and what not. Unfortunately, not all boards have CPU sockets in the same spot, and the access hole in the motherboard tray isn't exactly of any special benefit with this particular AMD board.

There are the typical issues with cable length when mounting a power supply at the bottom of the case, so make sure you have one with some extra long cables or you have cable extenders. There is however plenty of room around and behind the motherboard tray for other cable management.

Let's wrap up this review with a conclusion.
