The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 590

post #5891 of 12472
my suggestion (all be it a unpopular one) would of been to stay clear of a Corsair PSU

although they are good quality there idea of modular pretty much doesn't exist.

be quiet on the other hand have it best where they even have an option that has 3/4 (can't remember which) sata power cables and 1 molex on a single cable.

I understand the cables for sata are the same as molex so you should be able to just swap the connections over but with it running less volts you may find it has trouble powering it once it has loads of fans selected

well, there is only one problem, and thats i have a 860i sat in my case at work while the raid drives initialize tonight wink.gif

I agree however, that the idea of a modular power supply is possibly not the right word for it, a modular to me would mean that i can have a set of building blocks to create the PSU i wanted, sending the amount of power i want to the location i wanted.

With regards to the header controlling the fans, i am planning on getting my geeky little hands on one of the corsair link kits, as i have bought a series of link compatible products to allow me to automate the fan controls and lighting i plan for the ST case to make it look sexy under my desk, where no one will ever see it wink.gif

Ok, so I spent a lot of time this weekend rerunning all the cables better and soldering all my LED tape. Got the inside of the case wired and running but the wires behind the mobo are just terrible to work with, everything is just way too long and since I don't have a full modular I have a lot of extra wire to coil up and try to stash. Next time I'm going fully modular, sleeving it all along with custom lengths.

Anyway, on to the pictures!

Unlike most of the pictures I've seen I didn't want to light up the side the hard drive cages so I placed one strip of tape behind the support facing the motherboard instead and the rest around the inside perimeter.. I also have strips around the edge of the window on the panel itself.





This was a side project I did with the kids today and I deemed it fitting.


I need to start working on the top panel now as well as underneath the case for some subtle glow, looks like I won't be the only one with this either now. To finish the lighting I plan to get a 3 pin splitter panel and a switch to hook it all up. I was also thinking about getting extensions and save the time sleeving but with as much wire as I already have am thinking of waiting a bit and eventually replace the one I have with a modular when I build my HTPC. I really need a second GPU now!

Great Idea to close off the Drive bays from view but the Great thing about the Storm Trooper is that there is so much you can do with that part of the Case too.. Very Easy to make a cover for it.. So Many different ways and styles.. to do it.. Including blacking it out as you did.. Great Job.

I'm about to buy a storm Stryker. Thing is I don't like the white. I'd prefer it in red or black. I'm not a painter so any ideas how to get this done?

If you want black just buy the Trooper and a window panel like I did. Red you would really need to do some painting unless you have crazy skills with vinyl.

Hi just got my Storm Trooper, but have a few questions. Can someone show me where you guys got the "PSU Covers" on your Troopers? Would this one work? http://www.cmstore-usa.com/haf-x-psu-cover/

Also any sites that sell mods or accessories specifically for the Trooper, besides http://www.cmstore-usa.com/search.php?search_query=trooper


And what are these for?



Thank you!

Thank you!

I had the last HAF-X psu-cover in Europe, bought from the CM store. biggrin.gif I haven't seen them anywhere else but if you're handy you can use plexiglass or ask around if you're not.
As far as I know only the CM store that sell CM accessories, kinda lame but understandable.

The top one is a speaker and below looks like 8 pin extender for the motherboard

I've seen alot of people saying they've gotten 8 pin extenders with their trooper/strykers. I just double checked, I didn't get one. Not that I Needed it though, I Have sleeved extensions.
