I can't figure out how to get the front panel off the Stryker that doesn't make me feel like I'm going to break it.

First, remove the top panel, the 3.5" drive bays, and the plates holding them in position. Then remove the screws on top (in front of the pcb), and also the ones just above the hidden tray (behind the cover with the CM Storm logo). That's all if I recall correctly. If you have everything off, the plastic panel should slide up a bit and then come off.

Hey, I'm glad I'm here, I purchased all my parts and choosed the storm trooper black without windowed side panel to build my rig.

I already flipped the hard drive cage fans to be front-rear.

I have one question though, I got an optional fan which is the Noctua NF-F12 industrialPPC-3000 PWM (120mm).

I don't know where to place it, someone suggested that I should remove one of the hard drive cage fans and place it their as it's static pressure and would help push air through my SSDs to the components better than the stock one.

Is that the best option? and should I connect it to the case fan controller? Also where should I place the removed one? I'm thinking on the side panel where fits a 120mm.

Also since the case fan controller only take 4 fans, how can I control that one that I'm gonna remove?

Really appreciate inputs, Thanks

Welcome to ocn and the Trooper/Stryker club! thumb.gif

The fan you have there is PWM, and the Trooper's controller isn't. So connect it to the motherboard (or directly to the PSU but then you can't change its speed).

I don't know if the original Trooper panel has a filter on its mesh, I'd rather put the fan at the bottom where it's filtered. It'll help control dust (assuming it's intake).

Thanks for replying, yes my case have the dust filters on top and on bottom, and a small drive cage near the power supply place. So connecting the Noctua 3000 PWM to the main case fan controller won't work? This saved me time. I was about to replace it with a hard drive cage fan.

And thanks for the tip on connecting it to the motherboard as obviously I don't want it spinning at 3000 pwm! I have the Asus maximus vii formula board. What speed would you recommend setting it to? And in regards to placement, I have two options left: A) At the bottom of the case which means removing the hard drive bays. -OR- b) at the side panel.

The fan I have is the Noctua Nf-F12 120mm by the way. Here's a quote of it's features:

NF-F12: The NF-F12’s unique Focused Flow™ system produces extremely high static pressure and focuses the airflow in order to achieve even better results on air cooling heatsinks and water cooling radiators. With a top speed of 3000pwm, it also offers more performance headroom for less noise-sensitive applications. Choose the NF-F12 if you’re looking for the best possible performance on heatsinks and radiators.

How you put hardisk like that? Only with double tape or what?
