Aha, http://www.futurelooks.com/ces-2012-cooler-master-shows-off-new-psus-coolers-cases-and-cm-storm-peripherals-video/
says it'll be 10 bucks more. I wonder "when" we'll be able to buy it. I hate waiting for anything.
Found this too just in case anyone missed it before V
So... when they say limited edition, do they mean "limited to the total number we can sell" or is there a fixed production run and that's it.

Hey hey!

Just acquired my ST today. Here's the pix. Just plain ol' box so far. Haven't had a chance to start loading it up. Gotta finish planning my water cooling installation and gotta finish the "honey-do" list I was given.

700

Do't mind the mess. That's my sons old room. He has graduated from Electrical Engineering school here in Puerto Rico and is now working at a nuke power plant in Georgia. Damn proud of that boy.

As for me... like the theme of the club. I am ex-Navy myself. Petty Office 3rd. class. Served on a minesweeper in the early 80's. I was the one on board in charge of making things in the water go BOOM! I was also the one who had to jump in the water to find out why things sometimes did not go BOOM! But, I believe I was successful at my job. I am here today... joining a club!

Well, hope to have a chance to chat away with a few of you later on. I plan on water cooling my rig. My XSPC RX240 kit also came in today. Have had my P8Z77-V LK mobo and i5-3750K components already for a few days. I can answer some questions on water cooling for those who would like additional information. I enjoy that hobby a lot.

I do have one question... with this case, you WC'er guys/gals out there with 240mm rads. What is the consensus on top or bottom mounting in the Storm Trooper? I have the itch to bottom mount it cuz I have this funny feeling I could get better cool air intake that way.

Love the "wheels"!!!

Looks nice. Just out of curiosity... how long does it take to get used to gaming on three monitors at once... or do you only use one monitor while gaming and have other stuff running on the other monitors?

i tried gaming on 2 32"...it was super hard. It Looked awesome but man, there was just to much real-estate to look at. I suppose having smaller monitors would make it easier who knows.
I have my 240 mounted at the top and another mounted at the front.

Thx Kahbrohn and welcome!

I needed better airflow cause I got a 240 rad (push/pull) in the bottom and I have carpet. If you mount a top 240 rad, you either need to mod the carry handle or buy a smaller fan that can fit under it.

Well, the 3rd monitor arrived today, so it's a bit too early to tell. But DCS A-10C looked good!
When I get the monitor stands I can rotate them, cause Diablo 3 looked a bit weird atm.

2 screens is near impossible with those stupid bezels.

I am good in terms of no carpeting in the house. One of the perks of living in the tropics I guess. I am having a good feeling about doing the bottom install. Kust wondering on if I should leave both removable cages (will fit just fine - already tried) of take the bottom tray out. May do a test on that once all installed and post results.

Meantime... tomorrow I plan on cleaning out my water cooling goodies (rad flush and such).

Thanks for the welcome!

I couldn't help notice the ROG wallpaper, you should check this ROG theme from Asus. My favorite part of it is it changes the start button to the Evil Eye logo that lights up when you hover over it.
