I want to change to red LED fans and the stock fans have two connectors on each fan lead - one 3-pin and a 2-pin for LED control.

I know old Bit Fenix Spectre LED fans used to support the LED controller but don't know if they still ship with the separate 2 pin connector

The Bit Fenix LED Strips do still use the 2 pin connector so you can get them and use them on the led controller and just use non led fans in the front, that's what I do with both my Stryker and Trooper

Wanting to know for a build if a extended ATX (E-ATX) board will fit in this case at all without too much modding?

Coolermaster seems to think not.

Hmmmmmm

depends on the board

Most boards labeled as E-ATX in the consumer market aren't full E-ATX(Rampage IV Extreme and EVGA X79 Dark for example)

This is my X79 dark in the Stryker


This required no modding to fit as it is only about 1 inch wider than ATX

really you should be fine with any board as long as it isn't a dual CPU board such as the EVGA SR2/X these might fit but require a lot of modding

OK thanks Mr Strawberry...

Yes I saw some YouTube vids on the BitFenix Spectre Pro LED fans - they have a 2-pin connector that controls the LEDs, problem is it is a female and needs to be a male to connect to the wire from the Trooper front control board. Maybe there is an adapter for that?

Also noticed the Alchemy LED strips - I think one would be perfect for the Trooper case, it has an extra LED control wire from the front control board that is not used. I'm thinking of mounting a couple of 12 cm strips in series somewhere top of case so they shine out the top grill.

Thanks

Another Q - how should I mount a Seasonic PSU in the bottom of the Trooper case, with fan pointed up or down?
post #10216 of 12531
no problem, In that case i'm not sure about the fans.
Doesn't really matter how you mount the PSU, Either way is perfectly fine, personally I mounted my Be Quiet PSU with the fan pointing up but only because I like the design of the fan grill but either way is fine smile.gif

If it's on a desk or a place where you can easily clean the filter than you can mount it fan down. Otherwise, if it's on the floor or carpet or in a hard to reach place to get at the filter you would be best mounting it fan up so it's only sucking filtered air from inside the case. I've not cleaned mine at times for like 6 months, it looks like a cat attached to the filter and mine is on a desk!

OK thanks, I'ss be setting my PC on a desk, not the floor.

So mounting the PSU with the fan up will give lower case temps, less dust, and higher PSU temp. And the Cooler Master website help page says make sure to add additional case fans. Hmmmmm, maybe I should put a fan in the bottom panel behind the PSU as intake blowing up? I had decided not to do this because it would 'clash' with the air from the front panel fans.

With the fan down it will cool the PSU better, but causes more dust in the case....but it doesn't affect the case temperatures?

hmmmm...

Sorry I have another q - how the *!#! do you get hold of Cooler Master tech support???

I can't find a phone # and when I enter my question on their help site I get a message that my phone number is invalid!!! and it will not post my question.
post #10220 of 12531
Maybe someone here can help or has tried this: I want to connect two 12 cm BitFenix Alchemy LED strips (two 12cm strips in series) to the third front control board fan LED control wire that is unused.

Will I overload and possibly burn out the front control board?

The LED strips each have 6 LEDs and use 1.44W (so two in series would be 2.88W right?).

I cannot find any specs on the Trooper front control board anywhere...
