Storm trooper or cooler master atcs 840 black... suggest me plz, considering the size of the mobo and space inside the case. Stormtrooper cost 30 euro less than 840atcs

I am building it slowly, as motherboards have lots of problems, also the lga2011 cpu's have lots of problems in rev 1. So I am not in a rush (buying everything except cpu and mobo, keep them for last). I am thinking about asrock, because gigabyte and asus, are known for lots of problems in LGA2011 models.. (they burn!! Get on fire, without reason).

The size for the motherboard is relatively the same except the ATC has a removable motherboard tray where the Trooper does not. Both are nice. I have the same motherboard and I am waiting too. I want the new quad core coming out in Feb 13th. It is alittle stronger than a 2700K but just a little. I can live with that. But I will be using that same board in my Trooper.

Afaik the EX240 is about 35mm in height + fan with 25mm = 60mm. Is there enough space not getting in contact with the motherboard?

Some people speak of 5cm space up there.
Anyone here who tested this out? Who has a rad up there?

You know what might work? Use the Mounting holes closer to the panel. that way you miss the Memory and the board. you may get farther down that way. but I have the same board and a Corsair H-100 and I love my set up... My rad is on top. But the best place for a rad is on the bottom. Plenty of room for any size there.

I don't know but Tiger Direct has it for 139.00 right now. They Beat Newegg by ten dollars but I don't know if the shipping makes a difference or not.

Cheers, I asked mostly because of the size of motherboard as it comes with 8 slots of ram and gave me the idea, that its a bit bigger than normal ATX mobos.. But it says ATX form factor. In the other had I am thinking about 2x660 sli.. So its more than enough for me.. I am not an extremer smile.gif

Worried mostly for the (trooper) motherboard retention plate, for the cables to pass through. Will order it tomorrow smile.gif

I know its not what you want to here, but you are not going to find a high performance rad that will fit with a fans on the inside. The case was designed to have the fans mounted outside the case under the top cover. You could mod it to have the rad and fans off set. It shouldn't be that hard if you have the tools.

well from experience the front fan and the handle are fighting for space. If they would have thought about that handle more, you could fit a rad and a fan under the top cover.mad.gif

Don't worry bout that. This case is a BEAST

Is there more than 5mm of space? I know you have posted it before but its not in the OP and I don't feel like digging for it. Remember the fan is going through a rad so it not like it going to perform at 100% anyways, I will say I would ideally like at least 10mm or more but 5mm will still allow air movement. I would take a restricted fan over a weaker rad in a non ideal situation.
