Use Satin Black.. That will match the Case perfect.. Gloss will match the Rads.

Wait, you guys joking or not? Is it possible to just spraypaint a motherboard? Isn't paint conductive? Doesn't that fill up gaps that should't be filled? If it's actually possible to paint the pcb of a motherboard without breaking it or otherwise affecting performance (I'm thinking hotter motherboard temps) I'd love to know how. Pardon my ignorance, especially if you're joking. redface.gif

I'm considering getting a Storm Trooper, just a few questions.

One, the fans on the HDD bays seem a bit silly in their default setup unless you're running packing them full of 15,000rpm HDDs.

But to get those fans to act as intake fans and cool the entire PC, you'd need to move the entire HDD 'module' so that the back of the drives faces right towards the motherboard -- and that isn't as convenient for cable management.
Is there a way to get the best of both worlds, keep the 'modules' in their default orientation but move the fans to the front of the case so they can cool the entire PC?

Two, is there anything you know now about this case you wish you had known before buying it? I'd be hoping to keep this for a long time, until USB 4.0 or some other feature became so ubiquitous that it was very difficult to not replace it.

EDIT: One more! Apparently the built-in fan controller supports five fans, and LEDs on three.
That makes things a little awkward, as I was going to add a pair of CM red LED fans to the side, which means one of the four LED fans won't be have LED control.
Any way around this besides getting another controller? Can I use a Y splitter on one of the LED cables?

Thanks a lot.

Well thank you, sir!


So, I got the LEDs today, but my two new fans are 'missing'. USPS tracker says they were delivered but I did not receive them. I'm going to assume I'll have them waiting for me in the morning.

As far as the LEDs are concerned, they are not showing nearly as bright as I had anticipated, as they appear in the picture below. On the positive side, they are certainly orange, and the right hue:
700


Perhaps the difference is indeed that the shown case is not black. Regardless, here's what mine is looking like with the current configuration. I have run the string up to underneath the top cover and just have as much of it as I can wrapped around to shine through the mesh. I am very open to suggestions on what to do here- perhaps I will move them to the front of the case instead.. Keep in mind I am trying to get that orange glow from BF3 art.

On a related note... Sorry for the blurry pictures. How do you people take pictures of your rigs in the dark?! I cannot figure that one out frown.gif lol

Hey guys!

I just overclocked my I7 2600 (non k model) to 4.2ghz.

I did it by just changing the multiplier in my BIOS to 42.

This is my first time overclocking and I was wondering if there is anything else I need to do?

I used hyper PI and coretemp to do a test on the temps and VID I got these results;

The temp sits around 33 when idle and the VID is 0.9707 when Idle.

Hyper PI Results:
1m PI Digits, normal priority on all 8 cores; took 14 seconds, VID reaches around 1.35 and the temp hit 59.
2m PI Digits, normal priority on all 8 cores; took 34 seconds, VID reaches around 1.36 and the temp hit 66
4m PI Digits, normal priority on all 8 cores; took 71 seconds, VID reaches around 1.36 and the temp hit 75

Guys is this good or bad? will I ever hit 75 degrees while playing games? or is that just because I did 4m PI Digits.

I am just using the stock CPU Cooler as I feel the case has adequate air flow through the 5 fans I have on it.

Help me guys as I am scared to play games until I know this is safe frown.gif

Do I need to change anything in the BIOS? Or was just changing the multiplier enough?

Hope someone can help me out!

Thanks in advance guys!!!!
