The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 1019

post #10181 of 12471
Can someone tell me how to change the side fans on the Trooper to the front? I remember reading a post somewhere (maybe not on this site) about removing a cross bracket, but cannot find it again.... I just got my case today. Thankfully in great shape from shipping.

thanks

EDIT: there is a front plastic tray behind the bottom removable panel with the CM logo - it has a plastic bag in it. I cannot see how to get it out either - there is a cross brace right in front of it that appears to be part of the whole front panel.....(manual is not much help)

please HELP

Hah, I would love to post some more. I actually haven't been able to get the front fan LEDs working. Both cables for each fan power & led are plugged in but no lights. I will post a few most pics though of the case from the outside with the NZXT lights on. They're awesome. I just basically ran them around the perimeter of the interior, had to tuck it behind the H80i and also loop it through a small hole up top just before the HDD bays area.

Thanks for the memory tip. Gonna try that & memtest tonight.

The brace you need to remove is a black metal bar between the left and right sides behind one of the removable plates, held by two screws (one on each side).

The tool tray is also held in place by two screws. If you remove the cover with the CM Storm logo, you'll see the screws going though the tray with screw symbols next to them, just remove them and slide the tray out. By a cross brace in front of it, do you mean the one just above? That one is part of the front panel.

I have a Stryker, but they're basically the same.

EDIT: Here is the brace from my Stryker if it helps (sorry about the slight camera shake, I didn't want to bump the ISO too high).

Yep, JKuhn has it covered! If you want a more detailed visual, just watch this video.

Thanks JKuhn,

I have the newer version of the Trooper (with the left windowed panel and right panel just like on the Stryker).

I removed the lower panel with the CM logo and yes I see the two screws holding the storage box in. I got the storage out OK.

but,
I removed all the front panels and there is no cross brace anywhere on the front (behind the panels). Maybe they changed this new version???

Also, I took the lower fan off the side - I had to take the two thumbscrews holding the lower drive bay box in and slide it out to unclip the fan wire. But holding it up to the front I see no way to mount it - no screw holes line up.

I had planned to change the side fans to the front after reading multiple posts of people doing that. But now I don't think it is possible with this new version Trooper case.

Or am I just missing something?

thanks again

Did you find the brace? If not, it's not at the front, it's at the back between the HDD trays and the motherboard. And to rotate the fans you have to remove the HDD trays, rotate the removable plates in the case, and then insert the trays in the right orientation.

Hmnn, I use motherboard asrock Z87 Extreme4, and it has heatsink for the VRM part. Seeing your picture look like it's to risky to wear H105, I think I would choose to wear H75 or H110 to use.

Jkuhn, yes I found the brace -
thought it was at the front when I asked for help earlier.

I got the fans mounted in the front now.
Took the top fan out in order to mount the H100i -
next I'll mount the MB/CPU/cooler when it gets here in a couple of days. I just hope the MB standoffs don't break off in the tray like I've seen happen to others with this case.

Thanks!
