Taipei, Taiwan, October, 2009 – The world’s first true gaming chassis just got better. Developed in cooperation with the very best eSports professionals, the CM Storm Sniper offers an unprecedented focus on the unique needs of gamers, and comes packed with innovative solutions for the gamer lifestyle. Now, the Sniper returns fully loaded with Storm Tactics™ to provide more strength, security and control than ever before.

Launched in late 2008, the original CM Storm Sniper chassis quickly received worldwide acclaim from the global technology and gaming press. While the Sniper has been enjoying rave reviews around the world bringing in over 60 awards from the media, the CM Storm Labs have been working full steam on improving the Sniper even further.

The new and improved Sniper Black Edition includes all the features and functionality of the original Sniper, and raises the bar by including an all-black interior coating, full 2.5” SSD support and three huge Storm Force 200mm 142CFM fans! Coupled with the features that gamers have learned to love, such as reinforced carrying handles, fan and light controls, and the patented StormGuard™ security solution, the Sniper Black Edition is better than ever.

yet another enthusiast case with only 7 expansion slots

With SLI and crossfire going the way they're going, we need 8 expansion slots in case we hang a dual slot card off the end of our mobo. It would add nominal cost, and would open the door to more users. Seems like a no brainer to me.

That's why I'll be spending my money on one of LianLi's Lancool cases with 8 expansion slots TYVM

Why the LianLi over the Corsair? Just style preference?

It's a price thing....I haven't even seriously looked at the Corsair Obsidian at $300.

The LianLi's I'm looking at are $75 and (only if I really feel rich) $120

I am a little curious if I can manage to properly aircool a 4ghz i7 and three gtx275s in one of these, but for 1/3 the price I'll accept the challenge.

if it's anything like my HAF..then no it won't do 3 275's(unless they're water cooled)...mainly because there is no room between the last expansion slot and the PSU(if it's a bottom mounted PSU)..
