The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 204

post #2031 of 12389
Greetings, gentlepersons! Just bought my Storm Trooper yesterday and got it set up. I transferred my computer out of its former dwelling (Rosewill Destroyer) into something a bit more...roomy. So far I'm loving it!! Thought I would snoop around for some ideas I can implement as time goes by and money slooowly comes in (long story there), which is how I stumbled across this thread. Awesome pictures,and I especially like your "Cobra", Unimatrix.


Below are some pictures. Relatively speaking here, it's nothing special!

Peace,
PhantomLlama

Simple Cooler Master heat sink. Any recommendations for improvement? It's not feesible to make the liquid jump on my current budget..
450
Other than the case, the 6950 is my latest addition- bought for Battlefield 3 :-)
700

Compared to the Trooper, my old Destroyer case was really cramped!

Maybe someone could tell me why my temp. guage suddenly stopped working tonight? I'm not sure I will actually return it to the store. I have other guages in the computer, but for some reason they all suddenly died tonight. Sounds like a loose connection.

Hey guys

I just finished reading 204 pages of pure genius. There is some awsome designes/ideas going on in this thread. thumb.gif

Anyway i just finished my Trooper build (system wise) and im looking for something to bold it up a bit. I have replaced all the fans with these CoolerMaster 120mm Silent Green LED Fan but the fans themselves dont give out much light. SO i have ordered some of this awsome looking spaghetti wire (LIME of course).

Has anyone had any experience with this stuff? I just thought it could be awsome in highlighting various components and decals on the case.
Personally i was going to place it into the small channel on the front and top of the case.

I live in Western Australia (Wait Awhile) so dont hold your breath to see pics of this on the case anytime soon as postage from eastern states can take up to a bloody month to get here.

Cheers,
Shepherd

I am changing my theme to Ferrari and I have another Vinyl coating that is the exact same as the Cobra Build. I would be willing to sell it.. It's easy to install.

Well if you make the hop to Corsair H80 or H100 you might like that alot and it works really great.

Other than the case, the 6950 is my latest addition- bought for Battlefield 3 :-)
Wow.. A 6950.. That is one fine card.. I can see you playin' BF3 with that for a while to come.

Compared to the Trooper, my old Destroyer case was really cramped!

The Trooper is a wide case and long too. and tall.. Yea. LOL Its a big Case..

Maybe someone could tell me why my temp. guage suddenly stopped working tonight? I'm not sure I will actually return it to the store. I have other guages in the computer, but for some reason they all suddenly died tonight. Sounds like a loose connection.
I wonder if you are using the same sensor. If so you might have a problem there. If it is multiple points then the power wire for the modular might not be plugged in all the way. I just find it hard to see that both Thermostats would be having similar faults.

Personally... Paracord is my favorite. The fabric gives it a more smoother more natural Appearance. I love your work. But SKITZ you always impress me with your abilitlies. You are a Very Crafty Gentleman.

You got a Megasoma? Sorry, I couldn't help but notice. I heard those things start getting 'sticky' after a while. Any problems?

Maybe I should have clarified. The sensors that WORK are on the Motherboard, CPU and GPU. The sensors that DON'T work are the ones that came with the fan controller on the front of the case (there are five individual sensors). I'll be checking the connections out later on.

One question. Since I am not going liquid cooling just yet (at least for the whole case, now that the H80/H100 has been mentioned), would it be better to leave the 200mm exhaust or replace it with 2 120/140mm exhausts? I'm not exactly looking for quiet, though I don't want to have a Boeing 747 here.

Oh and the rig's name, "Tempestas Armatus", is just Latin for "Storm Trooper". "Armatus" for short smile.gif

Thanks guys!
