The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 54

post #531 of 12398
So I finally got my 5970 and 5850 to work properly. The 5970 would NOT work on the top PCIEx16 slot and I had to put the monitor on the 5970 to get any display ? lol. All three GPU's are functing right in windows though. Interesting.

Ok, here are a few more pics biggrin.gif

New review up. If anyone wants to get a bit more info biggrin.gif
post #534 of 12398
Couple of questions for the Storm Trooper owners.

1. Does it support E-ATX motherboards ?
2. In terms of air-cooling how does it compare with the HAF-X ?
3. What kind of configuration should the optional fans be added in (exhaust/intake) (specifically side) that works best ?
4. How does the cable-management compare to the HAF-X ?
post #535 of 12398
Well I finally got my delivery of this case this evening, I have to go to work and don't have much time to do anything with it so I'll just need to wait patiently till I get back..... In the mean time here are some pics.

2. In terms of air-cooling how does it compare with the HAF-X ? Its great but truth be told, I have never Ben interested in the and cases, so I don't know
3. What kind of configuration should the optional fans be added in (exhaust/intake) (specifically side) that works best ?When we were testing this with CMSSC we inverted the top fan and the bottom front and rear to opposite direction. But the difference is not worth the trouble.
4. How does the cable-management compare to the HAF-X ?
This I can say certainly better due to channels in th back of the box.

If it lists motherboard type as those then how does it support E-ATX if that motherboard compatibility isn't present ?

That brings me to five more questions concerning the Storm Trooper.

1. I'll be putting in about four of these fans into the optional fan slots (2 side , 2 bottom): http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=8_130&item_id=034878 (Cooler Master 120mm Red LED SickleFlow 2000 RPM Long Life Case Fan (R4-L2R-20AR-R1). Will it compromise the wind-tunnel since they spin faster than the other stock fans ?
2. How can the hard-drive cage be re-oriented for best performance (I understand having the HDD cage fans as intake will make much better air cooling performance but how is it done , it's very vague here:
http://www.madshrimps.be/articles/article/1000238/Cooler-Master-Storm-Trooper-Case-Review/2#axzz1eaCSnS5Z
3. Will I have any issues with the expansions slots due to the larger than ATX nature of the Maximus IV Extreme-Z ?
4. How best to orient the additional four fans (side 2 fans should be intake ? , bottom 2 fans should also be intake ?)
5. Will the Storm Trooper fit E-ATX motherboards for LGA2011 such as the Rampage IV Extreme ?

Okay I will explain....

Biggest to smallest.

AT 350 × 305
Baby-AT 330 × 216
BTX 325 × 266

microBTX 264 × 267
NLX 254 × 228
Ultra ATX 244 × 367

DTX 244 × 203
FlexATX 229 × 191
Mini-DTX 203 × 170
EBX 203 × 146
microATX (min.) 171 × 171
Mini-ITX 170 × 170
EPIC (Express) 165 × 115
ESM 149 × 71
Nano-ITX 120 × 120
COM Express 125 × 95
ESMexpress 125 × 95
ETX/XTX 114 × 95
Pico-ITX 100 × 72
PC/104 (-Plus) 96 × 90
ESMini 95 × 55
Qseven 70 × 70
mobile-ITX 60 × 60
CoreExpress 58 × 65


If you will notice the XL ATX is not listed. because there is not that officially. but because of world economy we have this term XL ATX which means the next size above ATX or E- ATX .. so the E-ATX will fit. ATX has 7 slots. E ATX and XL ATX is 9 and there are 9 slots for the E ATX and XL-ATX boards. the difference is usually how wide the board is too.. E and XL can be 1 and 1.5 inches faster so there is not a set name for them..

 

But to answer your question.. The Trooper has more room than the Haf on interior board room

Thanks for answering that question but I am curious as to why the HAF-X is listed with the following:
Quote:
M/B Type M-ATX / ATX / E-ATX / GIGABYTE XL-ATX

Whereas the compatibility for the Storm Trooper is listed without the E-ATX specification. Is it because XL-ATX is an unofficial variant of E-ATX or is it because it is an unofficial E-ATX ?

If you can also answer the following questions from the earlier post by me:
Quote:
1. I'll be putting in about four of these fans into the optional fan slots (2 side , 2 bottom): http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=8_130&item_id=034878 (Cooler Master 120mm Red LED SickleFlow 2000 RPM Long Life Case Fan (R4-L2R-20AR-R1). Will it compromise the wind-tunnel since they spin faster than the other stock fans ?
2. How can the hard-drive cage be re-oriented for best performance (I understand having the HDD cage fans as intake will make much better air cooling performance but how is it done , it's very vague here:

3. Will I have any issues with the expansions slots due to the larger than ATX nature of the Maximus IV Extreme-Z ?
4. How best to orient the additional four fans (side 2 fans should be intake ? , bottom 2 fans should also be intake ?)
5. Will the Storm Trooper fit E-ATX motherboards for LGA2011 such as the Rampage IV Extreme ?

I'd really appreciate it as I will be purchasing CPU/Motherboard/Case/Power Supply and Memory ASAP sometime by this Weekend and I need to know all the details.
