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!

That's how I Did my lighting too, only around the motherboard compartment, I didn't want to light up an area of the case with nothing interesting in it.

I saw that, I really like it that way. You've pretty much lit your case up how I've been planning to do mine since I got lol, I've also planned to stealth my drives the same way you did but never got around to it since the wife uses it from time to time.

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!


Its an 8pin extention for powering your cpu, upper left hand corner of boards usually, and the other is a case speaker, you can plug that in right next too all of your i/o panel connectors. Such as power/reset switch and hdd led ect.

Yes I checked, and the stealthing thing takes 2 minutes, pull off both side panels, push the drive back a little and install the cover to make sure it's back enough, the holes for the drive should line up with an open spot on the back side of the case, install thumb screws there and you're done. No modification needed. I don't know why everyone isn't doing it.

The drive would be easy to do but I don't want my wife to have to pull the front cover off to use the drive as she would probably scratch or break something lol.

Thanks! Where did you buy the side window panel? I found the storm trooper with window on the CM Storm page but only places selling it seem to be Australia. I can't find anyplace with just the window either. Thanks for your help!!

I haven't seen the Trooper sold with a window so you would just have to purchase the regular version, at least here in the US. The window panel only comes from CM directly, you have to purchase it from their online store here.
