Sounds like it's not sealing 100%. Check your o-ring, you might have over tightened it or you need to tighten it more.

Sounds not completely sealed..or also possible it's flushing out tiny pockets of trapped air.

Do you mean the top filter mate? Can't get it past the middle part with the metal thingy in the way cause of the H100 screws in a bad place.
Yeah I figured that would do the trick but decided against it. Taking out the washers might make the rad shaky and be even louder than it is now (damn those fans are loud). Also, that fans are set to blow out, figured the filter would just keep dirt in the case since the filter would block airflow outward.
BTW, is it possible/worth doing a push-pull on this case? heard it won't fit with the handle on unless it's a slim fan..What fan thickness will fit? Guess I can do a half push-pull with 1 half of the rad..

Okay found the 8-pin extender so all wires go through the back and also tightened everything even further. Here are the final pics with my external setup as well. Nothing fancy just a clean build. smile.gif

Why brown AsRock?

I tightened the sucker! Maybe I filled it too much?

Alright, working on my Stryker build, and having a little issue--most of the chassis fan/light cables I'm finding are made for two-pin headers, and the only two-pin header that's on my MoBo (ASRock Extreme3) is for SPDIF. They say things like PWR-SW, RESET-SW, and HDDLED (though there's no header on my HDD, either).

In addition, I have some funky little boxy headers on some cables--specifically, the skinny little bundled one that's black and brown, and also a grey cable coming down from the top fan. Two pins and an empty slot, but larger than even the four-pin headers on the MoBo.

Lastly, one wacky-looking two-slotter, again in the back, again a very slim cable with a boxy end. It's also got clips as if to loosen it.

All of these are connected to wires no bigger around than the included wire ties, and I have no clue what to do with any of them! Alas, they're all even too small for my camera to get decent pics of. Please help!

Those wires are mostly extension cords to plug into your board headers if you want the corresponding parts on top to work. The two pin connectors for your fans (not all support it) would need a fan controller or some other interface to make the lights/fan speeds adjustable. There's a controller in the top panel that supports twoor three, but otherwise you'd need additional hardware.

Edit: i have a large part of them tied off inside not used..it all depends on your needs.

Every mobo has fan headers, most of them are 3 pin some are 4 pin. Check the manual. And also check the front page!
You can plug in more then 1 fan on 1 header if you use a splitter. Same applies for the CM fan controller.
The black/brown wire (that's split) are also fan connectors.
I have a total of 6 fans connected on the CM Fan controller, somewhere I posted an official CM post of how many fans you could connect to the fan controller.. found it

Also which of the Extreme3 mobo's you got?

Only color available here. I'm lucky to have an AsRock Extreme4 available here lol.

When you post those pics after commenting on my pics it makes me feel embarrassed. haha

Hey guys just a quick question. So i have a CM storm enoforcer for a while so i was looking to up my case. Do you guys think the trooper is worth the upgrade. I do move my computer alot and i think the handle would help plus im always adding/removing hardware. I really want a case with a handle so i was also considering the C70? So what do you guys think? O and its on sale with a rebate today so quick answers would be appreciated lol. Thanks!
