See pics here

Do you know any retailers that sell the right side panel though with the same shape as the windowed panel? They only have the left window side panel on the cm store.

I have news. With my money that came in, I have decided I am going to upgrade my graphics (again). I will be crossfiring 6950 2 GB cards =) It is cheaper than a 7950 as I can tell, plus it will let me easily keep my 3 monitor setup (when I'm back in Chicago, that is).

This was sort of brought on by the fact that my current 6950 (which is a 1 GB model) seems to be glitching. Earlier the screen split and inverted while playing BF3 and later in Windows it getting static lines across it. It was rather strange and I can't seem to figure that out... I will be hopefully placing the order tomorrow!

More Picture of Cooler Master's New Window Panels that I have been honored to test. These panels look Great on this case and are worth the price that they will be asking for it. So without futher words Here is the new Panels on a completed build.

Comments on the New Case Panels.


PROS

1. The new panels solves the problem for buyers of the case that don't have the ability to mod or do not have the desire to mod, to have a nice window option to the Cooler Master Storm Trooper.

2. The new panels also solve a problem of more room behind the motherboard Tray. The non windowed side adds 7/8 inches of space to the very cramped one inch that was available before.

3. The Panels are Plug and Play. Just order the panels and replace with the ones you already have. No modding needed.


CONS.

1. In my opinion the panels change the mystique of the cases overall looks but that is an opinionated down side so I don't really consider that a bad thing. Some will like it and some will not.

2. The window is a bit too large for my tastes but this is also opinionated.

3. A little less ventilation for Crossfire Direct air due to no fans on side panel.

Overall. I love the new CoolerMaster Storm Trooper Window Panels. They are really nice and very high quality steel.









Here is the original Test we did on the new panels.. They sent them to me for having the Club and passing the word around.. I don't have them anymore.. Sorry. I like the Old ones.

This is a very Good Graphic card solution.. the 6950 was a great card and two of them would set the Video world on Fire... Great Idea.

I agree. As much as I like windows, the side panel fans are functionally sound. Taking them away ruins my airflow.

I've actually been thinking about this as I have not yet added those fans. Maybe I can get away with keeping the original sides and just adding a custom window on top of the side vent, best of both worlds.

Bought the cards today. Then realized that the plugs for the second card are back in Chicago- DOH! Then bought a molex adapter... -_- Me and my poor planning. All toys should be here on Thursday biggrin.gif

Edit: Make that Friday...
