I never used E-Sata in my life ever, and I believe I won't be needing it either. tongue.gif So should I pull the trigger on the Trooper? I'm leaning towards it, I like white, but I'm thinking that give it 2 years and its a bit yellowish already, plus it doesn't come with fan filters as the people in some forums say, so if that's the case, that is a deal breaker for me. So what would be the best choice for me for you guys? Hehe. Both cases are available. I'll be buying it in less than 24 hours smile.gif

I didn't know that one.

Both are great cases, I just hate the HAF looks.

I've send a mail yesterday and got a reply from CM store eu (HQ in Netherlands, btw) regarding the top fan filter.

I finally got the rest of my parts, just waiting for the 670 FTW backplate to arrive Thursday before I put it all together.

Hey Guys, I went ahead with this configuration. Do advise if it is good..any other info would be helpful


Kit - XSPC Rasa 750 RX240 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit w/ Updated Pump and RX240 Radiator and Free Kill Coil!
GPU Block - EK Radeon HD 7970 VGA Liquid Cooling Block - Acetal + Electroless Nickel Plated

Got some additional fitting and clamps and will be getting another 240mm radiator soon.

Awesome, I'll be doing the same,

Update us when it's all done, what will you do concerning the fans? I myself am thinking Front and Side for intakes and Rear and Top for exhausts with the top fans under the H100 Radiator.

THE WHEEL SOLUTION
For people who want to make their Trooper/Stryker mobile.

But why?
  • You want to mount a radiator in the bottom it must need good air flow in order to work efficiently
  • You want to save your back during maintenance
  • You have carpet
  • You have a dog and/or cat
  • You want it to look different
If one or more apply to you, wheels is a solution!

Any caster wheels will do as long as the base plate isn't bigger than 34mm / 1.33" exclamation.gif


Mine got a 34mm square base plate with four M4 screws holes and it raises the case around 60mm of the ground.
I used flat head M4 screws (11mm in full length) with a bolt to hold it snugly into place.
exclamation.gif Make sure to use flat heads otherwise you might run into problems mounting the radiator or other hardware. exclamation.gif
exclamation.gif Also use the shortest screw you can find and use a bolt. exclamation.gif


Now for some ghetto pix, here's mine:


I didn't mount them on the feet positions as the drill didn't go through the front section (hdd support structure). Drilling the holes on the edges made it a lot easier,
although in some spaces I couldn't drill because of rivets or there was simply not enough space to fit the screw in.


Two 25mm fans easily fit under it as you can see and there's still space left.

Does anybody know or have experience with these?
