I apologize for the crappy phone pix but my hd-camera didn't capture it correctly.

Anybody ever have any noise issues with mounting a 120mm fan on the bottom?

I got my fan controller wired up this week and a new OCZ-ZX 850w PSU as well.

I was able to determine which fan was the noisy one and it was a cheapy fan I put on the bottom (or so I thought). Sounded like it was rattling or buzzing. Disconnect the fan and the sound goes away. So I ordered a sickleflow to swap it out with and the sickleflow was garbage. I'm sending it back - sounds like some sawing wood in my case! Anyway, I put the old cheapy back in and when I was comparing fans out of the case, the cheapy didn't seem so loud. Now that's back in, the slight rattle/buzz sound is back. It's the same rattle sound that made me order the replacement fan. I thought that rattle/buzzing was coming from the fan but it seems to be the case. It's very slight. I pushed my hand on various pieces of the case to see if I could isolate the rattle/buzz. The fan is in tight. I even removed the fan filters. Nothing. Can't figure it out. The fan doesn't make that sound when it's in my hand. I'm going to order a better fan this weekend so I can replace that no-name crap fan (which isn't so crappy compared to that sickeflow!) and see what happens.
Oh... pics biggrin.gif

The thing is practically perfect. Only 2 issues- the bottom fan and my side panel that's still MIA from CM!

As far as noisy fans.. This can happen with any case.

1... Sometimes the screws on one corner is screwed in tighter than the others ... Try loosening and tightening during operation..
2... If you still have trouble it could be a noisey fan.
3... As a last resort use rubber grommets or some small squares of Card board on each corner to hush it up..

and those Side Panels are flying off the Assembly Line and selling as fast as they can make them.. they will be there.. and they are so great.

Rubber gromits... I'll have to try that. Now I just need to find a nice 120mm blue LED fan. Looks like I may have to break down and buy one of those Gelids.
I was hoping I wouldn't have to spend that much though.tongue.gif

I ordered my side panel on the 30th of last month. CM gave UPS the wrong address so now the thing is sitting at UPS waiting for CM to contact them with the proper address. I've emailed CM twice but the status of the package remains the same. It''s about 1000 miles from where it needs to be!!! frown.gif

One trick I found when I had my lian li case was to use fan spacers stopped the whooshing noise as the blades are further from the case edge and reduced the general noise. I had some lovely 140mm plexi ones im planning to do the same in this case with the floor intake

Hello guys,

I plan on buying a CM Storm Trooper case, I have a few questions, however:

1. Will I be able to put 2 140mm fans with 120mm holes (Bitfenix Spectre Pro's) as front intake? Is there enough room for that?
2. What kind of LED strips do you guys recommend using? Preferable one that already has a Molex connector so I won't have to do any soldering.
3. Does the windowed sidepanel have a fan position?
4. Would this be a good fan setup: two front intake, one side intake (the one closest to the back), one top intake 140mm (then front one, I dont want to use the back one, since Ill be using a dual tower cooler - a Thermalright Silver Arrow - and Im afraid itll disturb the airflow inbetween the two towers) and finally a back outtake (not sure about a bottom intake and extra side intake, but apperantly that'll disturb the air flow). I'm going to buy a GTX680 DirectCUII by the way.

I know it's a lot of questions, but I would really appreciate an answer!

The red line is the distance i need !
Btw how come the dimensions on that pic are different then the ones on cm storm trooper website?

On the site it says: (W) 250 x (H) 605.6 x (D) 578.5 mm / (W) 9.8 x (H) 23.8 x (D) 22.8 inch




Further:

Will it be wise to install all the optional 2x 120mm side and 2x 120mm bottom fans?
Or will the airflow be TOO positive for good airflow?
I'd like'd to have seen 1 more exhaust fan tbh...

Buy the case, you won't be disappointed!
1. Yes, they will fit.
2. Well, if you like spotlight LED's and don't mind difficult mounting, I strongly advise NZXT Sleeved LED kit! wink.gif Just don't get the orange one.
But go for cheap ones and if they don't use molex get a 4-pin to Molex adapter.
3. Yes, the windows also has 2 120mm fan placements, where the hdd bays are. Check all the pictures.
4. Sure. Also remember number 3: no 'back' fan placement there.

The measurements from the website are correct. The distance between the center of the case feet is 37 cm.

Wise, idk. Sometimes just a couple of fans can create the best cooling result. It really depends on how much & what kind of hardware you will use.
But fans in the bottom are recommended since that's where the cooler air is.

First of all, thx alot for your info ! This is my newly ordered build! And why i need a new case :-)

Cpu: Intel Core i7 3770K 3.50GHz 8MB Ivy Bridge
Cpu cooler: Noctua NH-D14
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H
Ram: Corsair Vengeance CML8GX3M2A1600C9 Low profile (2x4gb - pc12800 1600mhz)
SSD: Crucial M4 128Gb
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB ST2000DM001
Optical drive: DVD-Br Samsung SH-S222BB/BEBE 22x/22x black bulk
Graphics: MSI GeForce GTX 680 TwinFrozr III OC
Case: Cooler Master CM Storm Trooper
PSU: Corsair TX750 (alrdy have this from old rig so not buying a new modular one)
Case Fans bought: 2x Noctua 120x120x25 Noctua NF-S12B-FLX
Also have 2 Sharkoon Silent fans still laying around wich aren't loud so the idea was to use the all four 120mm fans to put them in the bottom and in the side panel.
I'm also planning on using the 2 HDD fans as intakes so guna mount the bays the old fashion way. Hence my question about overkill.

Any thoughts ? Or will i just need to find out myself by trial and error cuz like u said, sometimes less is more :-)
