Trying to find a way to fit the 120 in the rear without blocking my top rad and also video card position, but still in work in progress.











More coming soon and a build log to go with it..

Wow, orange Stryker with some Cougar fans in the mix. Very nice smile.gif

Took one look at it and said no way. Why would someone put an LED controller in a 5.25 bay? Thats just way too big.... I got the NZXT port controller. (yes you need rear case access, but really, your just showing off to your friends anyways... lol)

Still getting around to some testing, (maybe tonight). Two more quick questions.

Do you see anything in device manager when the external bay or (control board) is detected and working? If so what does that show up as?

Also, anyone else having problems getting a darn molex cable all the way up there, while still using the cable management? I have a cooler master silent pro gold 1200w PSU and the cable is about 6 inches too short. I am using some extensions that came with some fans that I had, I am going to test it without those extensions, but I would like to know how people have over come the really long stretch to get a cable up there.

I've only had it a few days but already see the two side slits offering nothing but dust in my config... So to rectify that and help take the edge off the acoustics I taped some black viynl over the holes from the inside and applied sound dampener (had some sitting around from car audio projects) very liberally to both side panels (and a few places in the case proper). Adds a couple pounds but I didnt but this monster to travel with anyway. MUCH more civil sounding when I have the fans cranked. Thought someone might get a kick out of it or be interested so here's a couple shots of what I mean.


The vinyl taped down over the mesh (side facing out is satin black in color)

Layer of dampener over everything. Holds the vinyl nice and taught against the side for a clean look as well as stopping the annoying buzz I could hear from the two layers of mesh on each other.

The other side panel done and ready to go back in.

^ As long as they don't have LED's.
Otherwise the LED's will start to flicker at lower speeds.

You can use led fans that have separate pins for them like the stock ones. Bitfenix Spectre Pro fans for example. However that being said, I'm not sure how many separate LED's can be spliced into the controller. I've asked CM but the reply bacl was they don't have that information available.

Well the stock controller can use up to 8 fans, so 8 sets of 4 LED's, which totals to alot of LED's. That being said Bitfenix fans have seperate LED channels? I never knew they did, i would run those instead of my fans.
