Well this is my CM Stryker case. I haven't done anything with it yet but I'm hoping to get some inspiration to start! I'll be filling it with all new parts next month! biggrin.gif

My Parts list is all picked out biggrin.gif

CPU: i5 4690k Devils Canyon

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler

GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V

MB: Asus MAXIMUS VII HERO ATX LGA1150 Motherboard

RAM: G.Skill Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2133 Memory

SSD: Crucial MX100 256GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

Storage: Western Digital BLACK SERIES 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM

PSU: EVGA 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular


This will actually be my first ever build...I'm really excited to get started on it. I'd love to mod the case, I'm just not sure how I want it. My wife and I airbrush so that's not a big deal but I'd like to change the actual looks of the case if I could. I just need to find some good Tutorials to get me started and inspired smile.gif

I got my new PSU yesterday and used the occasion to rotate the HDD cages to face the front side of the case, because someone here mentioned the matter of airflow. redface.gif

The new PSU is a Corsair AX 860i and the blue power cables are from cable mod. The rig is stone old but since the big hardwareupgrade is still two or three month away I figured I could go with some minor, optical, improvements.





Never noticed the temal paste fingerprints on the cpu cooler before. I guess it is clear, that I didn't use the bead method back then. tongue.gif

Here's some proof that cablemanagement is not exactly my strong side (more like no side at all).



The fans are all pluged into a Phanteks PWM Hub to minimize the cables you can see through the windowed sidepanel and make the build look cleaner.



Rearanging the HDD cases and redoing the cable works opened my eyes to a legion of problems with the future watercooling look I had in mind. I also hate the cable stuff from the HDDs. I guess I will move them to the 5,25" slots once I do the real upgrade and mount the SSD into the X-Dock.

No "clean" rig gets built overnight, cable management takes time and experimentation. So don't worry about that. Also, it's really not that bad.

Concerning the HDDs, I don't know your exact setup but if possible you could move them further apart, that'll make the cables less obvious. Or you could use cable ties to pull them out of the way.

Oh, and the Q9300 may be old, but it's still useable (see my folding rig).

I am having a problem with my Storm Stryker case. My problem is that the two default fans (in the front of the case) are not powering on with the rest of the system. My fan and led controller is not working. I have the molex cable plugged into the PSU and molex header on the top of the case.I also have a SATA cable plugged in. I have to admit, this is my first build and I may be missing something silly. Help (with pictures if possible) would be very much appreciated! Sorry if I do not get back right away as I am busy at the moment.

You mention a Molex header (obviously that's the X-Dock), a Molex cable, and a SATA cable. Could you tell me exactly where the Molex cable comes from? And what is the SATA cable?

Oh, and welcome to ocn. thumb.gif

The molex cable coming from the top is for the fan controller (The far left wire in the picture). The molex header on the PCB behind the xdock is for the xdock, so check the molex on the wire. Make sure there are no bent pins, and maybe even pull the top off the case and check the back of the controller itself. Make sure wires aren't broken or anything.

Are there any other fans plugged into the controller and are they working? I believe you can plug 4 fans into it, so if its only the front 2 not working then it may be a more difficult problem.

Thank you for your explanation. I had made a silly mistake regarding the molex cords. I was able to fix this mistake easily and now my Stryker is up and running.
