stock front, i kinda hate the plate on the bottom though.
GA-990fxa-ud5 with fx 6300 in it, just waiting on cooler.
the back side panel looks nice, to bad they don't make a mirrored one.
the window is the only thing that i really hate about the case, everything else is great.
I bought the storm stryker about a month ago and have slowly been gathering the bits to make a basic build. I love the trooper side covers but im not into the all black look, so the stryker won out. I don't mind the back side cover but the window looks terrible imo. I'm not much into windows anyway. So i have a possible mod in mind for the window, that is to make it look like the off side cover. I don't quite know how to do that though.
If I don't do that with the window side I will just get trooper side covers and paint them. speaking of paint i am thinking of a blue/white scheme. covering the psu wires with white and blue and maybe painting black bits blue. I also would love to change the front panel led's to blue, i have done a fair bit of soldering but never with smd's so that is a bit scary. I also hate the storm logo, so I may replace the plate on the toolbox cover piece.
I have a GA-990fxa-ud5 mainboard and a hyper 212 evo on the way. For now I will use a gt520 for gfx, but I want a newer card when i get funds. I am not sure quite what I need but the gtx660 looks good. I don't do massive gaming with no stops so I am not sure where I should shoot for gfx. I do want to play borderlands 2 and starcraft 2. mass effect looked neat when i was watching my brother on his ps3, but i have no idea if it comes with a pc flavor. My processor is a fx 6300, since i am a programmer i figured the extra cores could be helpful, i couldn't quite justify an 8 core though.
I might try to oc later and go water cooled but idk yet. there's so many options and mods that I cant keep my head on straight haha. I have no idea about water cooling either. It can look pretty though, I might do black poly sleeved tube since i dont care about dye and all. (or blue) some led's might look neat too, probably blue.
Im not sure how much psu I really need either, I don't know if sli is worth it from what i read i could just get a higher end board and be done with it.
any input on side covers?
