It's a quad core i5, with a beast of a single 580. Where's the second 580? tongue.gif

Looks like a window side panel kit should be releasing sometime late January, as well as a new variant of the case. this just made the case much higher on my list, all due to its above average rad support and nice design.

Hello - first post here!

Anyways, I recently got this case and for the most part, am liking it.

I've replaced all my fans with 1850 rpm Gentle Typhoons.

Still waiting for parts though before I transfer my old components from my Antec 900.

I have a question - anybody know what those screws are in the front hard drive cages and for the side fans? The manual says 6#32, but when I tested, they aren't 6 32s for sure. I think they are M3 screws. When I went to Home Depot, they said they didn't carry them. I'm not sure where to get them.

I'm looking for a longer set of them to mount some fan filters (no filters on side and the frontal ones aren't that good - I've replaced the filters on the bottom) and for the side fans, a fan grills as well.

Your best bet would probably be to just get a higher RPM fan. Considering the noise and performance would be similar. I'd recommend something with high static pressure.

It's arguably the biggest problem with this case - no room for a push pull radiator or some of the wider radiators on top. I wish that this case were 10 5.25" bays tall, with more space at the top for a bigger radiator and/or a push-pull.

Really ..  I do want to be corrected if I am wrong here.  I do my best but we are still
learning this new case so lets be gentle on the stupid guy.  >ME<

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


I will do that ..  Thanks for the Help..  It's always good to have knowledgable members on board.  Thanks for the help all of you.

I cannot confirm or deny that at this point this information but something is in the works as an add on to The Trooper for Mid January.  Look for it here on the CMSTC.

yea.. I think as we go we will figure out a mod to fix this..  I am thinking of finding a part that I can sell as a retro fit to allow for a 120 fan to fit on the top.  There is room for it if we can retrofit a new one with a minimum of stress involved.

There aren't many other flaws in this case otherwise. You'll be hard pressed to find a full-tower case for under $200 with more features than this one it seems. Maybe the HAF-X and the Rosewill Thor? I suppose the Corsair Graphite White and 650D would be competition, but they are mid towers.

Thoughts:
- I wish that the front had all USB 3.0 with adapters to 2.0

- The 2.5" dock is SATA 2 not SATA 3

- PCI expansion bays could have a tool-less system

- Cable management could be better - I think that something like the Sniper would have been nice:

550

Note the bulge covering the entire case.

- As mentioned, 10 drive slots with more room between the motherboard would have been nice as would have been the ability to mount 2 x 120mm on top.


- Needs modding for a window

- Some people don't like the fact that it is a mix of plastic and steel, rather than all metal; personally I'm fine with it

Finally, I'm going nuts trying to figure out where to get some longer M3 screws for the side panel fans and for the frontal hard drive fans. Unimatrix, do you have any ideas on where to get the screws for the hard drive and side panels? You seem to have the most knowledge about this case.

Wow.  I feel honored for your faith in my knowledge.  Thanks ... I will look up those screws and find you some..  Probably get one of them and take them to LOWES and get a replacement that way but I will check into it.

Hi,

I purchased the case for my first computer build and so far I love it. It is making my first build go very nice and easy. I did have one question though. I've attached 2 additional 120mm fans on the side of the case and was wondering if there is a splitter I can get for the LED controller cable so I can turn the the 2 additional side fan LEDs off and on with the default case fans when I use the LED on/off button on top of the case.

Also if I hook any fans directly into the motherboard how can I adjust their fan speeds?

Thanks
