Looks like you are using a Maximus VI Formula motherboard from what I see in your videos.

I'm pretty sure that you could water cool that motherboard if you wanted to.

So are you going with a little bit of red, white, and blue color scheme or do you plan on eventually replacing the white LED fans?

Hi guys,

I just got 2 PCs assembled with Storm Trooper. However, I noticed a strange behavior with one of them when I press the fan LED button. Instead of the LEDs turning off, the fans slow down and the LEDs remain on. On the other PC (storm trooper again) the LEDs turn off but the fans slow down too. Is this normal? sadsmiley.gif

On a side note, I think the top fan is a little bit noisy. What would you recommend to replace it with?

Duke - I've been using the Enermax TB Silence fans for air flow, and Noctua fans for radators. Keeps the computer VERY quiet, and still fairly cool.

Another option are the Silverstone pressure rated fans.

This is the only part I can answer. If you have it plugged into the fan controller it may get noisy. Try hooking it up to your motherboard and set it manually to a lower speed in your bios. I have mine like that now and I can barely hear it.

Well, managed to get the 690 cleaned out and out away. That one will be used in a family members build. Here are a few quick shots if the size difference. Holy crap this this is big





Where she'll be sitting



Anyway i have to say I am impressed but also let down in certain details with this case nothing big, just being nit picky. Mainly just the steel construction. Thought it would have been a heavier gauge. It seems to be a thinner steel than my cm690II. Especially noticeable with the side panels.

Though, will post pics of my built system as soon as I get my cooler ans motherboard back from RMA later this week.

the crosschill is alluminium so i will not combine it to my loop and still planning on LED lightning dunno what is good yet

knoobie just put his computer together! any ideas to getting more airflow? was mounting radiator like that a good idea? i figured it would be better for the cold to come into the case then exhaust heat. only problem is it doesn't give me any space to do a push/pull setup

Well that was an intense weekend of late night research on the webz. I was going to replace all my fans with white ones and non-led but couldn't find any I liked that also performed well. I then decided maybe it's time to switch cases since I'm bored. H440 or 750D, ended up wanting neither after many reviews and reading complaints from users. H440 will be the same choked intakes as the H630 and the 750D is thing metal and not always of good quality control along with not being available in white. I've decided to stick with the Trooper and will be modding it to fit my liking now to keep myself interested. Another thing that swayed me to stick with Trooper is that I need a GPU upgrade now to handle the pixel boost so my extra monies are going to that instead.

Apparently there really is nothing out there yet besides Caselabs that will make switching from the Trooper worth it.

Hey ben, good point, sad you didnt end up making the switch the the h440 but im still a trooper fan, still got one to mod/play with. I'm gonna start doing custom mesh mod designs and cutouts for h440/h630 owners for optimal airflow if you ever change your mind!
