If you're a gaming enthusiast, especially one of the FPS persuasion, sniping is either your ultimate past time or the biggest thorn in your side. This is because many gamers tend to regularly be on one end of the scope or the other. Of course, its more fun to be looking down the scope with the sniper rifle in hand. Set up. Zoom in. The target is visible and lined up in your sights. BOOM HEAD SHOT!
Sniper is the name of Cooler Master's recently introduced enclosure. By name alone, many gaming enthusiasts and real-world Tackleberry type gun enthusiasts will be turned on by this new case. Cooler Master says their new box design was inspired by military weapons and there's no doubt it has that rugged gun-metal look, similar to some of their recent offerings. Now we are looking down our scope at the Sniper, sizing it up, while it looks back at us. We need figure out, is this a "friendly" or do we pull the trigger?

With an enclosure named Sniper, we were hoping (well...dreaming) for the inclusion of a matching first person shooter PC game. But, like most products in recent years, nobody likes to throw those type of goodies in the bundle anymore. We had to settle for the manuals, zip ties and other typical items like screws and standoffs.
However, we did get a couple uncommon items in the bundle. Cooler Master tossed in a couple brackets for those of us that are sporting the new SSD drives in place of HDDs. They also included a quad set of rubber knob feet, for those that don't prefer the pre-attached, and larger, swivel feet. And finally we also got another pair of liquid cooling o-rings (the first pair comes pre-installed).
Since looking at the bundle is nothing but a little tease-fest, let's move on and take a closer look at the Sniper.
