Sorry for my shoddy pics, I spend more on my PC than digital cameras tongue.gif

Looks great but I have mine turned the other way. It's a cleaner look and the black tubes don't cover up the very sexy corsair water lock. Plus mine is programmed to be blue when in normal temp rang and to change red when getting too hot. Mounted the way you have it, can't see the corsair water block very well to notice the change. Ill bet you can rotate the rad without having to remove the water block.

I connected a 3rd LED fan on to the 3rd and unused LEDwire, but when i did that and turned it on the 3rd fan was not lighting up and the LED-button was not working... :S overload? lol

Thanx for the tip mate.
I have rotated the rad now so the water block can be seen properly.
I have my pump set to only light up as constant red to match the lighting of the case.

I also moved my SSD out of the cage (and removed the cage) and put the SSD into the drive bay instead.
Tidied up some cables as well.

Will take pics and share them in the morning.

Can someone just tell me, can I put a 60mm thick radiator on top of the case??
I have MSI z77 MPower board.. Did anyone did it that way?? And know for sure that it is possible or not??

I doubut it. I have a 45mm rad with one set of 25mm fans. I'm just about to touch the ram slots. My VRM heat sinks are thank fully short enough after using the stepped over 240 mount. If you mounted the fans "outsude" the case under the top cover You can could do it but you have to mod the handle.

45+25 = 70 >60 biggrin.gif
Handle is not the prob, I already choped it out... And I also did the "360 mod", to make room for the 3x120 rad.. And you are suggesting these circled holes ?? Can they handle 360x60mm rad filled with water??

You're math is flaw less, I just wasn't sure if you wanted internally mounted fans or not. Because you won't get your fans inside the case with a 60mm rad. 

 

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't hold. just make sure you use all the holes or ad more.

 

Edit: correction. You may not be able to install the middle fan because of the ram slots but depending on your motherboard you might get the other two.

I'm going to go with pull fans only (externaly mounted - underneath the top plastic panel) if I decide to get 60mm thick rad.. I now see that I will have to drill 2 more holes for the middle fan to hold on to (I guess) the radiator with some spacers or something... And the closest fan to the front will be directly on the rad, and not the case...

But I'm struggling with the space for that rad and my MPower board.. It has a top heatsink that is comming out so far and high, and I dont know if I'll be able to clear it even with rad mounted od that 140mm holes headscratch.gif

Hi guys,

Planning on getting the Trooper soon. I was wondering if the window side panel is available anywhere. Has it been discontinued/will it be available soon?


Thanks!!
