The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 140

post #1391 of 12390
Thank you Boomstick,Goodink,Unimatrix

i almost hit the order button for the saber today. the only thing, it does not have a led readout and the ramp does. Im not going to subzero cool and im only going to overclock my 3820(which will be here tomorrow) to 3.9 ghz.. Although i read several are running 4+ stable. i am going to crossfire 2 7970 asus cards. Is that led read out important for errors and things? i just want to do this right the first time. i know mobos are a hit and miss kind of thing. you could get a good one or a bad one.

Also i put in a shameless plug to our trooper club in a my newegg review for the case hehe. a little advertisement. but it was so they could ask better questions and receive the right answers before they purchase.


and again thank you guys for helping

I ordered from that site, great guy gave me tons of pointers and recommended things. I would say go with the regular double density led's as they work the best. His website isn't the greatest but shows you the differences and then you just email him to order. If you have any questions about them I should be able to answer them as well. He shipped them on weds night and I got them Saturday morning which was impressive for 5 bucks

The front as you can see isn't blinding bright but more of a color wash behind the grills.

I was looking to do something kinda between the stock led fans through the mesh and yours. I want it to be noticeable but not so bright your eye is drawn away from the looks of the case itself. You gotta admit, it looks good enough without the work of the extra lighting.

Another thought... the corsair water kits... can you remove the hoses for routing purposes or is it designed to be permanent?

If it isn't too late, what about this MB Rampage IV Formula

My Answer would be use These

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 R4-L2R-20AR-R1 120mm Silent operation Red LED case fan

400
They are made to be put on permanent. The way you work around that is you Slice past the Nipples and then gently cut the rubber off of the nipple by slicing a razor 3 Quarters in to the hose and then peel it off the Nipple. Replace with the same hose and hose clamps or new hose and Reservoir and clamps. buts yea.. They are not easy to brake down. There are a number of videos about breaking down the H-50 on You tube. The other Corsair models are all based on the same engineering so check H-50 Mods for the best How To's

what would you need more memory for though lol i have 16gb now and do lots of video editing work and photo editing and have never even gotten close to using 8 of that. Even with some of the systems maxing out at 32 or 64 gigs there is no reason for all of that. Just curious why you would need so many that 4 wouldn't suffice?

So true. I bought 16gb and now I have 12gb of memory looking for something to do. I think I'll uninstall two sticks and push my overclock. Besides, there's no reason why just four memory slots won't work. If you're spending that kind of money on a motherboard than you can afford four 8gb sticks of RAM.

OK Guys just for future reference (in 3-4 months) I wanna install a water cooling into my case and its gonna be for the first time, so Im wondering what are your suggestion considering the following things


- I wanna do it for the fun of it and experience.
- Im not a gamer however Im gonna overclock the *toooot* out of my components then bring them a couple steps back just to keep it cool
- Looks nice in the case with all the glow stuff
- I wanna cool the CPU and the GPU (open for suggestions).
- prefer rad to be installed inside the case
- the bigger the rad the better
- my components are:

CPU AMD 965 C3
GPU havent decided yet but mostly its either HD 6970 or HD 6950
Mobo Asus M5A99x Evo
Memory 16GB Corsair DDR3
PSU 650W mostly gonna have to upgrade it to 850W unless I need more than 850W please let me know.

Sound Level> Performance>Looks

looking forward for your suggestions thumb.gif
