post #4371 of 12478
Im thinking of buying the Stryker white but I have a couple of questions I hope you can help with...

Dont know if this has been adressed already but I'll go ahead and ask anyway.... Can you have both 2*120 side fan and 2*120 front fans at the same time?

q.2 I have the H80 how should I setup the airflow? Rear intake (all intake?) and the top fan only exhaust?

There are only two fans that flow through the hard drive cages. You can rotate the cages so it's front-to-back instead of side-to-side airflow. I think that you're thinking it comes with two fans on the side and two in the front, which is wrong. Hope that clears it up.

You will have to custom wire the two fans for every one and use only Cooler Master R4s on the side.. The low wattage fans.. But I think you could get away with boosting power off each fan circuit to pick up the two sides an still have them on the Controller..



Or you can Get a Nice Fan Controller and put as many fans as you want in the box..



The H 80 fits nicely on the top back.. Have it sucking air from the top and blow it out with that 140 Fan on the back.

Have a Great build.. Welcome to the Club...

I meant can I have 4 there? instead of 2? if I move the two in front will I be able to install 2 on the side as well

You mean remove the 200mm top fan and install the h80 there?

Look how clean that looks! :-) I want mine like that too

Has anyone tried to put a Alphacool 360 Monsta vertically in the front of the case? If so, can you post some picks on how you mounted it? I ordered one the other day and I have a pretty good idea as to how to mount it but it would be good to see someone else's to compare designs.

thx

I got the CM Storm Trooper for a few days now. I've got some questions for you people regarding noise:

-The rear fan. Anyone else get this "buzzing" sound near the I/O panel? When I place my ear next to the panel, you can hear it very well. When I stop the fan, the noise is gone. At first I thought it was the I/O panel vibrating, but that wouldn't explain why it stops when I stop the fan.

-HDD fans: I swear the lowest fan of the two makes noise that the other one doesn't make. It's not a buzz like the rear fan, don't even know how to call the sound. I would think it's normal, but the upper one doesn't make it.

Anyone got similar experiences? Should I replace these two fans or are those noises considered normal? Don't even know if the HDD fans are required, it's my first case with them.

Normally this is not an issue with Cooler Master Fans. They are made very well and meet or excede standards or quiet operation..BUT

Yes.. I have had this problem with fans in esome builds I have done in the past. Its usually easy to repair.

If a fan is not properly mounted any one of them will make noise.. The Secret is to make sure each screw is tightened equally with the same pressure or the fan will warp and cause it to make noise.

Also.. Any small wires close to the fan could have the same effect..



IF this does not fix the problems the easiest fix would be to replace the fans with ones from the cooler master website.

or get you a Set of these fans.. The Lian Li fans are quiet and extremely Bright.

Also, has anyone ever noticed that there are 6 fan headers with the Trooper?
