The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 671

post #6701 of 12478

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.

top stock

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?

First: Welcome! Second: try to avoid as much as possible to cross cables over the back cpu plate (heat).

Where I live i couldn't really do that, Maybe side panels but that could be tough too. (little trailer on a dirt lot) I have an idea on the window though, maybe replace it with a white plastic sheet and that should work fine.

There is so many great ideas on this thread, and the website. I am totally new to this stuff, my last case was a mid atx from the mid to late 90's. So you see, I'm not use to the bells and whistles. I'll say great job to everyone and envy your skills haha.

at last a few photos of it almost finished, a few things to tweak, cables to hide any suggestions would be welcome jut got the new motherboard in after i RMA'd the old one and a h100, which i have replaced with a h100i, need some decent memory does any one know some decent gaming ram at a decent price the last board didn't like my corsair xms3 modules (all be it they wer not fully identical which is probably why they were the same model but were bought at different locations just so i got do a few pre-lim tests. e.g. boot up and install the OS to the HDD and check all was ok. but will be wanting to buy some identical for finishing it off.

looking to sell but it looks like it will be old tech soon with haswell round the corner probably new gpu's and sockets too.


oh well it will still be a tidy gaming rig for me.

Looks great. Need to flip the rad on the h100i so the tubes are out of the way.
What MB is that?
post #6709 of 12478
Agreed! You should turn the rad around so you don't hide the corsair logo on the pump.

Having a SC2 HOTS party today. Been going for hours already and hopped up on coffee now! It's really more like a CM Trooper/Stryker party so I figured I would share!
