Hey guys, still doing research on this case and how I'm liking to have it. I'm not going to water cooling course, sticking to air cooling. I'm hoping that I will be able to use the bottom 3 5.25 like everyone does with the top. One for a blu ray, one for a auto fan controller and the other for a card reader.
What I'm trying to figure out is if a 120mm fan will fit in the top 3 bays. Also will I have any problems doing the bottom three as I mentioned?rolleyes.gif The other thing is what is the wattage rating of the fan controller on the top? If it is good enough to run 6 fans.

That is a pretty Epic Mod you got on your hands. I dont see a problem with the blu Ray fitting on that bottom rack because it has the mounts on the side, but you will have to have some ingenuity to make it all work.

The Controller on top is only good for about 15 watts. That would be pushing it. The fans that come with the case are set for 1800 rpm. Powered down for Quiet running and less wattage. I would suggest you use an after market controller. The 3 and a half card reader will fit anyway you want it too. You shouldn't have any problems with that one..

There is only a place for two 120 fans in the bottom of the case not Three.. So keep that in mnd too.

that would be an interesting set up. im going to look at my case this afternoon and see how hard it would be for you. honestly, just about anything can be done to this case.




UPDATE: i ordered my RAM today. Corsair Dominator GT 8x4gb 2400mhz quad channel <======== viperwolf needs a loan officer redface.gif

EDIT i had to order two kits of 4, so i hope the revision numbers on the sticks match

I don't think they are like Server Ram. They sell them in fours for marketing. They don't have to match Batches. but its a good idea for them to match Ram timing and speed.

My thinking is to have a fan blowing inline for the cpu cooler in the top 3 5.25 bays. the middle 3 will hold hhd and ssd. The bottom 3 if all works would make the case flow better. Just going to use one 120 fan on the bottom, plus two more on the side for the gpu. Wanting to leave the tray in the bottom of the Trooper. The Auto fan controller would be a 5.25 size (Lamptron Touch) plus the card reader would be the same size with usb2 and usb3 slots (Icybox)

Yes that was done for the CM Storm Scouts. Full air flow from the top to the back.. It really works well..

I love your Ideas for your parts.. Sounds great. thumb.gif

your probably right, ive been reading so much stuff, that things are blending together. A few people mentioned that if the revision numbers were different it would cause a conflict with the board not seeing all the ram. Like i said, its been alot of reading, so im probably just rambling

Holy cow! You should be able to fine tune your timings if you have any issues. From my experience, ASUS and Corsair play well together.thumb.gif
