Hey Guys! I am a proud owner of a Cooler Master Storm Trooper. It was the case I used for my first build and I still love it till this day, but it is time to upgrade. So I've been searching for a worthy successor for a while now and I've even come to a point where I made plans to build a case by myself. The best case I've found so far is the Jonsbo UMX4. It is a suprisingly small and good looking mid-tower that, despite its size, supports full size atx components as well as radiators and multiple hard drives. Sadly it is hard to find and a bit outdated. At Computex I saw the SL600M prototype and I kinda fell in love with it. It looks very sleek, seems to have some cool features and is supposedly silence optimised. It has a front mounted PSU, just like the UMX4, potentially allowing for great airflow while keeping everything in a compact enclosure. At first glance I thought this was the perfect case for me, at second glance however I noticed that the case is about as high if not even higher than a MasterCase Maker 5t and I was disappointed. With 544 x 242 x 574 mm the 5t is a really large case. If the SL600M is actually around that size, it will be just another expensive full-tower with some gimmicks. If it would utilize the space it has gained from moving the PSU to the front more efficiently, it would be able to get under 50 x 50 cm just like the Jonsbo UMX4 did, even with two 200mm fans. Then it would be a relatively compact and silent case while still being able to hold tall aircoolers (like the Dark Rock Pro line or the Noctua NH-D15), radiators, atx motherboards, atx PSUs and a bunch of drives. I know that a smaller size comes at a cost of features, but the UMX4 is a proof of concept that under 50 x 50 cm is definitely possible without much compromise. The front- and top-panel seem to be very bulky which is partly due to their organic design. If the frame and those panels were a bit smaller, the case would already lose a good bit of its bulk without destroying the design language. The SL600M seems like a candidate for the case of the year but in my opinion it doesn't really live up to its full potential. The high-end segment has either huge, but feature rich cases or tiny, but limiting enclosures. The SL600M could strike the perfect balance and make the high-end market more attractive to the mainstream. The SL600M could be a real trendsetter. I would love to hear what you guys think about my points, as I'm really looking forward to this case. Cheers!
I found my way to the cooler master site in hopes they would be one of those awesome companies that still have a suggestion area and by Odin's beard there's a link on the main page to the forums that serve as just that. So i signed up and now it's time to do my part. I apologize for the spelling and grammar you're about to experience. I'm about 3 hours past when i should've went to sleep because of Newegg (is there a medical term for Newegg spec +/- price comparisons that keep you up at night? There should be. ONCD or something.) Anyways Cooler Master here is my conundrum. I am in the market for a keyboard, and i was so interested in the Storm series that i immediately decided i need to go 10 keyless. And my wallet is just yearning to give you my money. But I can't. Initially i saw the Quickfire for around $90 with mx browns and i was like, "yup, that's the one." Then I saw the Rapid-i with the programmable lighting for each button, which for most people wouldn't matter, but i am a console convert still trying to learn the standard keys on a keyboard in shooters. The shift is always easy to find, but i constantly forget which button is the melee. So I love that feature for my specific situation. But that $130 price bracket is tough. The Corsair K70 is at about $120 right now,, with one additional USB for the mouse or headset + voice control scroll wheel. The Razer Black Widow Stealth Edition Expert is $100 with 3.5 mm jacks and a mouse side usb w/o programmable lighting. The K70 being full sized hurts it for me, and I visually dislike the key design on all Razers so incredibly much. I've used a friends extensively, and I find the font on the shift and enter keys distracting. Even though i don't look at the keyboard 97% of the time while typing, i'm constantly seeing those funky letters out of the corner of my eye and they cause me to pause before i use them. So this is what i need out of a CM Storm TKless. It needs to have a side usb for the mouse. and it needs to have volume jacks. IT WOULD BE ACCEPTABLE to add an inch back on the width of the keyboard for those features to be there! Atleast the side USB for the mouse. If the Rapid-I had both of those I'd be done shopping. And unfortunately, without them i may have to settle for a fullsized keyboard that i don't want. I think the CM Quickfire Keyboards are the best looking keyboards within $50+ of their price range.And it kills me to be buying something else. If CM dropped a press release saying they would be launching a Quickfire with those features in September i would wait willingly. So please. Remove the ten key, replace it with goodies. A volume wheel for the headset would also save me so much fumbling in the dark.
