The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 401

post #4001 of 12421
Hey guys, I got a question. I just got the XSPC Rasa 750 RX240 Water Cooling Kit. additional thin Radiator (Black Ice Stealth) and a GPU block.

1) Would i be able to support the loop with the pump that comes along? ( mixed answers on this question)
2) I would be fixing the thin Radiator with pull config on top. The RX240 RAD with Push / Pull either on the front or the bottom, question is which would be a better placement?

Will be posting the pic once the rig is up.

Here is how I did it:

This is not the right way to do it, I just put the green checkmark and the red cross-out to show that when I tried to screw the fan controller down with the cords coming down the bottom (next to the X-Dock) I couldn't close it. When I screwed it down with the cords coming out the top, passing through the cutout near the handle, I was able to close it (green checkmark) but it was still a little difficult.

Since I did route the USB 3.0 cords through the cutouts, in the bottom right corner I showed how the topmost drive bay touches the cable --- I never remember it being like that before.

Most of the cables from the front panel are waaay to long, if you ask me..

I removed the X-dock print plate and tray (that's where the rolled up cables are) and added a 5.25" bracket for the incredible long USB 3.0 cables.


On a completely different topic. It's incredible difficult to get my hands on distilled water, I can only find demi-water thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Would boiled water cooled be good enough to run through a Water Cooling system.. Boiling it would kill the bacteria and then run it through a Britta filter to get the impurities out.. I wonder???? rolleyes.gif

distilled water is when the bacteria is killed and the dirt removed through a process called distilling

distilling is simply boiling water than using ice to create condensation and you would use not the boiled water nor the ice but the condensation water biggrin.gif

or get 2 glass bottles 1 with water and 1 with no water and a hose, attach both bottles with the hose and the bottle with water put in a pot to boil and the other bottle put ice around it till it fills with condensation water.

well i don't know how to make distilled water because i'm sure the process they use is professional so have fun with that biggrin.gif

You think I could keep my 3 GTX 470's and my i7 at a stable temp and still be able to have all the radiators internal? I don't really like the look of external rad's and I don't want to do a crazy amount of modding.... (but a little might not hurt right? biggrin.gif )

Just got my case and I'm gonna need to return it ugh. The handle isn't aligned properly. I'm assuming its the roof cover that's warped for some reason. When I press down on the roof the middle section doesn't "click" into place and it pops back up.

I've watched videos of people pressing down on the fan controller and I noticed the entire panel doesn't sink while pressing the buttons. On mine, if i press the "fan increase" button, the LED switch and the fan decrease button sink as well. This happens with which ever buttons i press (the other 2 buttons will also sink).

The right USB 3.0 on the front panel is also bent. Not the actual connector but the metal lining that allows a USB plug to fit in.

The left side panel is scratched and the top front of the case is scratched also.

I cant take out the tool box at the bottom. If i pull any harder it will snap. I would need to remove the entire front bezel inorder to get that tool box out.

Either they sent me an RMA'd case or I just got really bad luck here lol. Oh well, hopefully I can join the club soon T__T.

Here are some pictures. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

How to get distilled water (non conductive)

It looks 'professional' but using a large pot, a hose and another smaller pot does the trick too. Also great for making alcohol! biggrin.gif
