post #5621 of 12482
Can someone please tell me, what are these 3 red circled diodes?? I'm planing to change them, but I don't know exactly what is that model, so please help.. And what is the voltage or (again) model of this regular blue circled LEDs?? Cause I know that there are a different voltage models..

Please someone answer as soon as possible, so I can do that mod before the hollyday season smile.gif

If it's a ground wire, what is the interest of this ground wire?

If I change the ubs3 internal wire by another, will be there a problem or not?

The usb3 internal wire that I can buy on site don't have this ground wire. I don't understand this difference.

I don't understand why these ubs3internal wire have a ground wire and usb3 internal wire available in online shop don't have ground wire. If anybody can explain me, thanks.

While I do not have a multimeter handy to test the voltages for you, those red circles are also LEDs.
Those are SMD LEDs.
If you have a multimeter, just turn the rig on (or put power to that power board), and positive one side, negative other, and it will read out.

A ground wire is to ground the electronics.
It's hard to explain if the concept is not understood.

Basically, if there were static electricity to be induced on that power board, the possibility of shorting it out is much more significant.
However, if there's a ground, there's a way for that static electricity to 'exit' the board, and to safely be removed.

Without a ground wire, there is pretty much 'floating' electricity in that area.
So say you had two power supplies without a ground, you'd have 'floating' electricity on the chassis of the power supplies, and if you were to touch the chassis, since YOU are grounded (feet touching carpet, carpet touching earth, etc), the electricity can potentially travel through you.
This is how electrocutions happen.
But since we're only dealing with small amperages and voltages, don't be worried of dying. thumb.gif

All connections will have ground, it's not a huge deal if it's not replaced, just be sure you're not planning on vacuuming and then touching that bare metal shortly after.

There are 3 ground wires coming from the front panel, 2 from the usb 3.0 and 1 from the panel itself.
IDK why Cooler Master has put them in with ground wire. None of the other cases I got have that.
So I don't see any problem.

Thanks for this explanation.
The problem is that I don't understand why with this case, ubs3 internal cable have an additionnal ground wire not integrated directly like with other case or other usb wires that we can buy in a shop.

usb3 internal wire that we can buy in shop don't have this additionnal ground wire.

I would like to know if I buy a usb3 internal wire to replace this wire (that don't function well because my usb 3.0 key are disconnected if I use these two internal usb3 connectors. My usb3 key works well if I use other usb3 connectors at the rear panel of motherboard), there won't be the ground wire and I ask if I will have a problem or not.

It's the first time that I see this additional ground device not integrated directly in the wire.

Are there ever any deals on the stryker series cases?
I'm greatly considering this for my future build but I would like to recycle two 240 rads and im not sure if i can fit both internally.

Don't know of any deals but do know you can easily fit two 240 rads inside; one in the top and one in the bottom.

Hello Peps smile.gif (I Have ordered my Storm Trooper, and picking it up the 2nd of January.)

I have now been looking for over 3 days, trying to find a mod guide for the front LED. I wish to replace all the LED's (http://cdn.overclock.net/7/74/741d7982_IMG_0344.jpeg) from Red to Blue.
I wish to match the LED's to my current color scheme. Blue lights... Even my Ram etc are blue.

Kindly Regards S1lv3rflame

Now why would you light up such a beautiful case, and hide it under a desk? smile.gif
