The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 468

post #4671 of 12394
I have a question that I would like some option on:

I would like to get some cables extenders to make the inside look neater... given the ginormous window.

I need the following:

1 x 24 pin power extender
1 x 8 pin CPU power extender
2 x 6 pin PCI-e power extenders

Now, NZXT has a neat little package that has all those cables for $20 + shipping, but it only comes in black
From Frozen CPU (Thanks to the awesome person whose name escape me at the moment) I have found some ModRight and BitFenix cables in white but they are sold seperately for around $40 + shipping.

I would love to get white as my case is a stryker, and would probably match better, but given that my Rig's name is Neo Noire, Black works as well, just not my first choice.

Which would you guys think would be a better fit for the Stryker?

Also, I'm trying to decide between white vs. blue LEDs for interior lighting.

Thank you in advance for all your words of wisdom.

So I just received a Cooler Master Storm Trooper and I have no freaking idea of how to mount fans in the 2 bottom slots.
I've taken out the cage and toolbox, but the holes provided are way too large and none of my screws will tighten my fans.
How did you guys do this?! I feel pretty silly not being able to figure this out...

+rep for help!

You would push the screw in from the bottom, and screw into the fan itself , the same way you would mount the exhaust fan.

Got my Storm Trooper today, and am loving it! (Pics to come).

I have a few questions:

1. I have a XSPC CPU water block - which I had the HARDEST time fitting - I am very concerned that all of the shifting, and sliding will have ruined my thermal paste - do you think that I should be so worried?

2. I have gone for a custom water cooling loop - which I have filled, and have leak tested for a couple of hours - is this enough, or should I leave the loop running for longer?

3. Below is a picture of the right side of the HDD bay - where I have fitted my reservoir - How am I meant to screw this side in? the gaps are too small!!

I'm anxious for all of my parts to come in as well and hope that my theme will look somewhat decent.
I am going to be getting red see through tubing for my water cooling and white LED fans for the case. Hopefully it will turn out somewhat decent with the window panel.

Theres a bunch of ventilation holes down there and then there are actual mounting holes that are a bit longer. Make sure you're trying to screw them into the actual mounting holes. thumb.gif

Sadly there is no good way that I have found short of dremmeling the prongs out and fabricating a bracket to clamp the res in.

Also on another note can some one take a picture of how the window is mounted to the side panel on the stryker? I am debating for next semester the trooper or the stryker for a mod that is in the planning stages.

I have 2 questions:

1.What is the best position & best cooling for the h100(stock fans & may upgrade it later to push & pull) in storm trooper(rear-back-front).

2.I got asus gtx 680 direct cuII top & i want to know if it will fit in the storm trooper or not?(the other parts in my hot rig!!!!,see it & tell me your opinion if they will fit or not).
