Thanks
Yes and No
Yes only if you remove the cage with the fan since that is just a converter from 5'2 to 3'5
No if you plan to keep the fan with the cage then its only a 3'5 bay

Thanks for explaining that, that seems ok for me as I would only need one of the cages to be removed and used for optical/reservoir/fan controllers and I can use the the other cage for 3 harddrives/SSD.

That is already more flexible than most other cases smile.gif

Also I wont be watercooling for a while so I wanted to know whether the rotatable harddrive cages can be orientated so the fans are next to the graphics cards (blowing directly on them) rather than at the front panel of the case.


Now just to decide on either black or white.

i really like the white, but it doesnt seem to be for sale for a month and with a 30% price increase.

yes you can rotate the cages to 4 different positions smile.gif
and as for the ssd it has a little ssd cage at the bottom next to the hard drive cages
and
impatience always cost a premium
if you wait it out for the white one just keep a eye on it there's always promo codes or special day sales sign up for the newsletter from where you want to buy it they always send out things like free shipping codes or 15% off and etc. but get the one you like the most biggrin.gif the black one has no side panel window just the white one does you have to special order it for the black one

Dunno if I'm really selling, it's just a thought. What do yall think?

I think you can fit a 360 up top and 2 x 240's in this case with ease and make a false floor. I love the TJ07, but it has been done, I like to think outside the box. If you are wanting to keep the heat from the rads separate, easy 2 x 240's up front blowing out the sides and cap off the back like a lot of people do with the TJ07's drive bays. I believe this case is more flexible than both of those cases.

Thanks, no review ever mentions/shows that, and with the fans next to the graphics card would surely that would be the best position for air cooling?

yeah its just you can have the fan pushing air out the front or from the front in or from the sides left to right or vice versa so i guess 4 different ways
i watched a 30+ minute review about this case on youtube and more than half the video it was just talking XD i like to read instead of watching reviews biggrin.gif
and yea that sounds right for cooling its what i would do, have the lower front fan push air out the side for the hard drives and have the fan above that one push air in with no hard drives in it

like that
6 weeks Wow! super patient XD i buy on impulse frown.gif

I understand. A Trooper is great because it has been pre modded already. This case was made for the person that Likes the case as is and would like to do a little something to it, Maybe... I modded the exterior of mine and added windows and I felt terrible the whole time because the case is just that stunning.. But I understand. The Silverstones and the Corsair have ultra Large cases and are more mod friendly. Even the new Fractal Designs are nice for water cooling.. Truly I hate to lose any member to another case but it always happens. I , Like you, have always changed cases like my Pants but Since I modded my Ferrari build I have not had a need to do it anymore for myself since. Its just too pretty thanks to "Legendmask" and my other friends here. I love my trooper but I Love the Corsair H 100 also and that is what this case was designed for..

I asked this a few pages ago and from what I can tell right now they don't have the matching right side for the window panel. I've only seen the window panel available through the CMstore here in US.

You know Benben.. This is not right.. Its like selling half of a Pizza.. or selling you a car with no Wheels, You should get both sides. Hold off until they redesign the side for a window that matches the theme of the case you have now or wait until they start selling both sides. The Side Panels are selling faster than they can make them.. I don't think they exspected this kind of demand for the panels and they are using all they can for the STRYKER Cases at the moment.

Wait until you can get what you want.
