I am updating this INFO in the Page one..  Thanks for letting us know..  Great Comment.

 

haha no problem. I tend to go on the offensive when someone answers another's question with completely false info, sorry for that lol.

Hey guys just thought I'd share my system with a relatively new case, the CM storm trooper.
A quick look at the specs:

Intel Core i5 2300 w/ stock heatsink(running at 3ghz, locked multiplier FTW)
Asus P8H67 M Pro (looks tiny in this case, but at the time of purchase it was in my budget)
MSI GTX 580 Lightning Extreme (truly awesome card, need i say more)
8GB G.skill Sniper 1600mhz (cheap as chips)
Corsair HX-1050 PSU
Few HDD's

DSC00157.JPG

It looks truly magnificent in the dark. Before I bought the case i comtemplated replacing them with Blue Led fans but as soon as i saw this, i was hooked.

DSC00154.JPG

I really reckon the optical drive ruins the overall aesthetics of the case but i use it fairly often so it's in for the duration.

DSC00158.JPG

Here you see that I've positioned the hard drive cages so it's intaking air from the front and cooling the harddrives and also the rest of the case. Although this method makes your SATA power and data cables a mess, it's a small price to pay.

DSC00159.JPG

Can you spot the odd Sata cable out? hehe tongue.gif The card blocks the first two Sata II's and covers most of the southbridge heatsink.

And to end the pictures, a look through the mesh panel looking at the 580's led's.

Cheers

Best bet would be to change the picture to read "Hot swap available in ACHI and RAID SATA modes"

I thought the hot swap bay was limited to SATA II though.

Thanx for the help guys. I'm putting an ASUS Rampage 4 Extreme in one of these, with a single Sata II SSD for the OD and raided Sata III HDDs for data. So as long as I set the controller to RAID before I install windows, then I can use one Sata II port for the Dock, one Sata II for the OS, and 2 for Sata III ports the RAID data drives. I Hope this works. smile.gif

+rep for this. Definitely would've helped me out last year when I switched to ACHI (finally just reinstalled to fix it easily at the time)

It will be limited to SATA II speeds, SATA III drives will still fit
