facewizard13 I'm not familiar with that MB, but you can search YouTube and find vids like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRI7IAkQ8PA that explain some of the connectors on the board - may help. Probably can find more too.....

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...

Honestly it doesn't really matter, mount it the way you feel looks better. The fan pulls air into the PSU and out the rear so I don't see how it would make the inside of the case any dustier. Either you filter straight cool with fan down and have to clean the bottom case filter or pull warmed air from inside case through the PSU. If you need the extra exhaust go ahead and use it for that. PSU from my experience don't run hot at all, barely even need a fan so don't be too concerned about cooling it.

Hello! My Storm Trooper Stryker arrived today and my girlfriend and I are now trying to hook up the motherboard, but we are really having a difficult time...

It's an ASRock X79 Extreme4 motherboard. We've scoured the manuals for the motherboard and the case, as well as tried searching for more helpful diagrams online(because the ones in the manuals suck), but we can't seem to find anything that helps. Thanks to this thread we have been able to identify a couple of the cables, but we still cannot figure out where said cables plug into the motherboard, and the manual for the motherboard refers to spots for cables that don't seem to be on the case.

Example #1: we have identified the fan power cable (3 pin with brown and black wires coming out of it) because that is what was show in a few of the posts on here, however, our cable doesn't have 3 pins....it has 2 pins and a hole where the 3rd would be. We do know see any other cables that match the description for the fan power cable. Is this how it is supposed to be or is ours broken...? On top of that, we cannot find a spot on the motherboard to even plug that cable into.

Example #2: we have identified the fan LED on off switch plug, but we cannot find a plug for it on the motherboard, nor any reference to a place for one in the motherboard manual.

The only cables we have successfully found homes for are the USB 2.0 and 3.0. We basically need a step by step video of guide for hooking up all of the cables if such a thing exists. I've been trying to sort this out for hours now and my girlfriend is about ready to take a bat to the entire thing. Do any of you have any experience with this motherboard-case combo or know of any helpful diagrams for either of them???

Grateful and desperate for any and all help!

Also, the 4-pin black molex cable- does that plug into the power supply or......where?

Sorry, it's just neither of us have ever built a computer for ourselves before. We have done a ton of research on parts and compatibility and such, but nothing prepared us for how vague and confusing this part was going to be... Hooking up the video cards, the sound card, etc...we've got that down fine, but we seem to have only a spotty idea of what we're doing with these case cables, and its driving us nuts. We had wanted to be done building this tonight.
first welcome, feel free to hit us up with any questions, welcome to the beginning of the obsession !

4 pin molex is for your psu

the 3 pins only have 2 pins , the 3rd pin is to relay RPM signal back to the motherboard, or fan controller, the other 2 are 12v/ground this case uses a method to control fan speeds by quickly turning on and off the power ( pulsing ) so if you hook up a fan with leds you will see them blinking on anything less then full power

neither the fan controller or the leds connect to the mobo as mentioned you just need the hdd led ( optional actually ) reset sw ( also optional ) and powerswitch ( if you have a surface mounted power button on the mobo you can also not attach this, but imo it is a pain so it is better to just attach it )

if you need more advanced help it helps us to help you if you fill out a rigbuilder ( upper right hand of this page ) then put it in your signature ( click your name, then scroll down to signature, edit and you should be able to see it, if not feel free to ask !! )

It looks amazing now,But does anyone have any tips on how to PROPERLY run along the edges? I tried and tried and tried.

I have a hue also. I chose not to run it across the bottom and tucked all of the extra lighting under the bay. I found it impossible to run the lights across the bottom without introducing glare on the window. Even without the extra lighting on the bottom it is quite bright and even. As for the back I just ran it to where it meets the rear exhaust fan and then tucked it into the mounting area. If you notice there is a lot of light coming from where I tucked it. You can always cover the extra lighting in electrical tape to hide the actual light.





You may want to get some 2 sided foam tape in order to stick it to the drive bay area. You can find it at any grocery store for a couple of bucks. The extra mass of the tape will add a medium for the lighting to attach to. I did it pretty crudely but I figured it didn't really matter too much.

I have the NZXT Hue as well and here is where I placed the entire LED strip: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Wow,nice pics of the RGB HUE,but did you guys have to unmount anything for it to fit? Btw,if i decide to peel it off and adjust theplacement,do you guys think the adhesive will be there so i can just stick it somewhere else? As far as residue,cleaning with alcohol will clean it,right?

I don't recall having to remove anything... And yes, with some effort the residue will indeed come off.

I am sorry to double post but I wanted to show off my rig in the way I've always wanted it. What do you guys think?

post #10238 of 12472
Hey guys, and gals... First off let me say that I have been following this club for quite a while and just recently joined! The work that all of you guys put into your trooper/ stryker is down right amazing. Ive had my stryker for a while and been gradually modding it. ( will be posting photos soon ) Nothing to extreme, but I am hoping to get on par with some of the work ive seen on here! Just wanted to kinda introduce myself to ya'll!
