So just to check if that was safe, I mailed CM and PM them at facebook. Result from CM Storm @ facebook: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Will check later if temps stay within my comfort zone.

This way they stay nice a quiet until it's really needed and then they ramp up. I'm pretty sure you can do this with Fan Xpert II also. This is one of the main reasons I use Asus, I don't want to use a fan controller unless I 100% have too. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Here is a video of Fan Xpert II

I do use FanXpert (version 1) as it came with my Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z mobo. However I use it only for my pump. I prefer to be in control of my fans.

Here's the answer of Cooler Master Europe:


*edit* Version 2 of Fan Xpert does look nice but is only for z77 chipset

The part I hate about buying cases is how awesome they look on paper, but having the build quality feel cheap once I get it. Does any of the plastic/metal feel cheap or is everything pretty well put together?

I am also torn between the Trooper and the Stryker. I usually prefer all black cases instead of white, but the Stryker is a perfect mix of both. Impatient me says go with the Trooper since NewEgg has them, but another part of me says wait til the Stryker is available since thats what I think I really want.

The build quality is whats expected for this price and size of case. The panels are not too thick but not flimsy, they have a decent solid feel. As far as the plastic/rubber components they are great, high quality abs or whatever is used. This is my second case, first full tower and I wouldn't change it. Has plenty of modding and configuration options. As far as trooper or stryker its all what you want to do lol, if u cant wait get the trooper you can always buy the windowed panel or cut your own but the trooper DOES have the two side fans on the stock panel which the srtyker NOT have, unless you bought a trooper panel for it but really? haha, and you can always paint eaither case. Anyway its a good case looks professional and aggressive in a discrete way which is what i love.

I have to agree, nothing feels cheap on this case.

You are talking about the Trooper/Stryker, right? I think I would describe this case as a hey look at me, in your face styling, but not over the top, more for a gamer than an office.
