I did mine like that, but my cables are orientated different. I can plug mine in upside down. Why dont you get some sleeving to dress them up also.

Currently I only have 2 drives and only 1 is actually in a drive cage. But by the end of the year I hope to have 3 more drives in that cage. The other cage I hope to use for watercooling purposes if I ever make the plunge.

Hey I'm going to be replacing my Cooler Master HAF 932 in the next few months with either the Trooper or the Stryker and I'm not sure on which one to choose. I currently have a sabertooth p67 motherboard and black vengeance ram. I guess my question is this, which one would you think would look better with my system. I included a picture of what my system currently looks like. It's an old photo so ignore the really bad cable management

I'm biased, but the Stryker is my favorite Cooler Master case of all time.

I think your black components would look good in either case, but with the stryker you can show them off through the window.

Can easily buy the window for the trooper though =/
post #5197 of 12478
Have any of you guys changed out the stock fans in the trooper/Stryker? I noticed that the front two 120mm fans get somewhat restricted on how much air they can suck through the front drive bay covers. The stock white led 120mm fans seem to have a static pressure of 2.97 according to cmstore Europe. They also only have roughly 50cfm.

I have tried the enermax cluster which has a 71cfm rating. It seemed to push more air than the stock ones. I recently just tried the bitfenix spectre pro LEDs. Two 120mms in front and the 140mm in rear. They look great, but the front intakes don't seem to be pulling much air into the case mainly because the drive bay covers I'm assuming.

Bitfenix spectre pro LEDs white edition:

The Enermax cluster 1500rpm fans(non pwm) have ridiculous cfm according to the packaging. I think they are better than my stock coolermaster 120mms. 51cfm compared to the enermax 71 cfms.



I think my ocd kicks in when I think about mixing fans. redface.gif The enermax has a silver/aluminum trim piece around it that basically takes away from its appeal.

My thoughts are running two of the enermax cluster fans(71cfm) (120mm) up front in place of the coolermaster (51cfm) fans. I also have two 120mm bitfenix spectre pro all white fans coming today which have 56 cfm rating. They have the cool looking white leds in them also. I have another bitfenix 140mm white with white leds (86cfm) also coming to possibly replace the coolermaster 140mm(60-70cfm).

The plan is to get good airflow into the case while exahusting the hot air out the back while all still looking great in the process.

Option 1:
Use the bitfenix spectre pros all around
dual 120mm up front and a 140mm in rear


Option 2:
Use the enermax cluster in front 120mm and
bitfenix 140mm in rear



Option 3:
Use the corsair sp120 high performance editions up front and maybe another 120mm in rear since they have great pressure. My thinking is having the better pressure to push the air into the case and also pushing the air out of the rear through those holes in the rear which probably creates some resistance.

51zbXCy0maL.jpg

Option 4:
Use Enermax clusters all the way around which seems on of the best choices.




I was hoping to keep all the fans the same so they would look essentially the same. I like the phanteks fans, but they dont have leds in them which I like. The 140mm phanteks has a cfm rating of 78 and 19db which is pretty darn good.

The phanteks 120mm fans only have a cfm rating of 50cfm but are louder at 23db compared to my stock fans. So basically the coolermaster stock 120mm fans blow just as hard with less dbs and they have cool leds. LOL.




On a side note, IF the enermax cluster fans didnt have that ugly silver ring, they seem to be the better fan overall.

Those your only options? Then one or two. One if you prefer looks over cooling. Otherwise two, since the spectre pro 120's aren't that strong.

Or stay with the stock fans which look nice, cool decent and have LEDs. Just which cooler master made the rear 140mm a led fan also. I could use a 120mm stock fan in the rear since I have four now.

I essentially want to light up the case somewhat and it seemed like it would be easier by havinged fans. But that might not be the route to take.
