i was looking for what colored cables,( that is the graphics card and 24 pin) , would go with the motherboard as above in a storm trooper case

would blue still work or would different colored cables be better

Sorry that I re-writeing my question but I need an answer fast!

"Did you mean to the 3.5" bays?
If you did so no, im not going to fill up those bays, but will it be MUST to take the middle HDD cage out?

Thanks again"

Sorry, yes 3.5 bays was what I mean't. You probably could even use the 3.5 bays since there will be plenty of room. The Xtreme cooler mounted to a 7970 makes for a total length of 12 inches, the Trooper/Stryker has 12.7 inches of room to fill, you'll be fine.

Cleanest wiring on the Trooper yet! I love your case, what did you paint the front cover with? It looks like it matches the stock plastic soft touch stuff 100%

Does anyone know how thick radiators one could mount for a water cooling setup in a Storm Trooper, when fan thickness is taken into consideration?
Would imagine there would be space for a Push7Pull 240 60m rad at the bottom, if remowing SSD cage and one HDD cage.?
At the top I know there is space for a 240 originaly and a 360 if modded a litle bit, would we look at space for a 30mm or 45mm with fans? With 360 installed does the top 5,25" bay have to be sacrified (space needed for rad?)
Also should there be space for a 420 without having issues with cables and such at top, or is this just a wild kind of hoping?
At the rear there are originaly space for a 120 rad, would there be space for a 140 at this spot? Guessing it would be a 30mm thick rad regardless of the rad size itself to not come in conflict with the 240/360/420 rad in top.?
Does anyone know of dimension drawnings for the case, looking for just a bit more of measurements than what is found in first post.
At the moment I'm not looking at any special setup/config, just wanting to know what is possible and plan it from therre.But watercooling will make it's way into this case:D
Looking forward to hear what you think

If you want push/pull on all rads than 30mm is the max rad thickness, imo. The top rad wil be very close to the mobo if thicker than 30mm and push/pull can only be done with modding the carry handle.
idk about a 60mm thick rad in bottom, though I do know 240 30mm thick rad in push/pull works and than you can keep all the 5.25" hdd bays.

Without modding a 240\280 rad will fit in the top, with modding a 360 and you can keep the 5.25" bays.
I don't think a 420 will work, cause it will conflict with the 'front' panel, handle and ssd dock. But all can be removed (altered)..so maybe it is possible. But again not thicker than 30mm.

I remembered a fellow who tried a 140 rad in the back and had difficulty fitting one.. I do know a 60mm thick Phobya G-Changer rad works perfect there (I have one) but I did mount one fan outside the case.
And you will get clearing issues if you fit a rad in the top.

As for measurements, what specific are you looking for?

Plenty of WC setups in this thread, search away!

Thanks!.

For the covers; front panel, top panel, PSU, Side/HDD cover I used "dull/matte" black spray paint. Its a 99% match =)

Hey everyone, just picked up my new stryker, love it. I have a question though, I bought two extra 120mm fans with white LEDs (the ones that come on the side of the case) and I am wondering how to wire in the LED's to the controller since it only has one extra led connector, thanks!
