Otherwise if you have a little more room look at the desks from biomorph for ideas. If I had a little more time and room in the garage I'd probably build something like those.

the rest of that wall is all stuff from the Besta/Framsta stuff from ikea, and I'll actually be backlighting those glass panels on the walls, I'll take a pic of the trooper once it's in it's new home with it's new window.

Oh it'll still be pretty damn good, if you don't feel like risking the mod, just go with that! thumb.gif Or put a smaller fan on there, like a 100 mm or so, you won't be able to screw it in place so use tie wraps.

Well it doesnt take long to do the handle mod and it is worth it. I got all four push pull but before I had just three fans and that was good too.. Not much of a difference butI couldn't stand it.. I needed to do it so I know it was possible.

You can put a 92 mm slim fan in there and get good air flow

I would like to introduce myself and i will soon be attempting to join the club!
I am going( back ) to school to obtain my IT degree....so I thought this would be a great time to do my first build!
The first thing I picked up was the Storm Trooper case! I stopped at a Fry's on the way back from a vacation and when I saw the build quality of the case I was sold!
Asus 27" monitor should be showing up any minute.
Asus gtx 680 is on the way.
ASUS P9X79 PRO and an i7-3820 was ordered today!
I think I have a pretty good start!

I do have a question though: I am planing on using an Antech KUHLER H2O 920 Liquid Cooling System (Corsair seems to have a bunch of probs with the pumps being noisy)
and I was wondering what fan layout do i need to keep positive air pressure in the case? I have two cats and a dog so I wanna keep out all the junk in the air!

Keep up the good work everyone! Im inspired to mod my case !

P.S. I am a seasoned woodworker so I have tons of experience with tools and techniques so feel free to get a second opinion from me. because I know that i will be looking for a great
deal of advise from you all here!!!!

Cheers!

Thanks Unimatrixzero!

Oh i forgot to mention:

1) that I am planing on G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133

2) Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW120A3K5 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

3) Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

4) To be determined PSU ( any suggestions would be great!)

I want to add some LED's to the top and inside

extra fans on the bottom of the case in place of the SSD cage

Oh and like I said before i would like positive pressure on the inside of the case but i don't know where to put everything.

Let me know what you all think of the specs so far!

If my suggestions are valid too, get DDR3-1600 RAM -- DDR3-2133 is not going to have a remotely noticeable impact.

The Intel 520 is decent, but pricey and SandForce, still recommend the Samsung 830 or Crucial m4.

For PSU, the Corsair HX750 is a great one that isn't _too_ pricey and will last you a long time (7 year warranty). It has nearly all black cables, mostly modular, and most of the cables are flat too.
The HX650 is a bit cheaper, but uses a different core that isn't as stellar.

Thanks for the reply Ranguvar!

Tell me what you think....the reason that I picked the Intel SSD drive was the reliability factor......I read tons of reviews and the Intel drive seemed to be the one that was the most reliable. Once school starts i won't have time to do "have to" projects...
And there is a ton of different Samsung drives in the 520 catagory....I was thinking about 128 g so could you refine that suggestion when you get a chance.

I will do some hard checking on the HX 750 too... Thanks!
