Well I think it is a testament to the case that there is not a lot of modding being done to it. Most people mod to improve function, and with this case, it functions very well for most.

We need a real mod on this case.  Not just trying  to fit something in.  We need a working mod for that back middle handle Strut.

 

This is the problem here:

Now obviously, this reviewer (Vortez) is gonna use the big air CPU cooler, but if tried to put a pair of 120mm fans and in there, it's clear that he would have some RAM clearance issues.

True .. But there is this.

The bottom of the case would be a great place to mount coolers like the H100, but unfortunately, the pipes are not long enough to allow for that.

It looks like a mod will be needed for those that want it.

For now, I'm sticking to air. I'm still waiting for parts before making my build.

True enough.

- Plenty of hard drives
- Enough room for all GPUs (anybody try fitting an Asus Mars 2 inside tongue.gif)
- We've got cable management
- I personally have added some fans, but that doesn't need modding (but we do new screws - ugh)
- Motherboards - everything except HPTX

Hmm ... only real flaw is the low clearance then between the top and the motherboard.

All things considered, that's pretty good. In this entire case, we have only found one major problem that cannot easily be fixed.

Edit:

I'm thinking. If the Storm Trooper is the equal to the Haf 932 - what will the Haf-X equivalent of the Storm Trooper be?

I cannot agree More with the both of you. The CMSTrooper is very well thought out. While I think they should have done a few things different the Good outways the Bad by a TON.

Okay.. Here is what you do.
If you want a Radiator that Fat. then cut a hole the size of the Rad in the top of the case and fit half up and half down. Then you can get your push Pull fans in and have your 50 mm rad..

Maybe tis will help with cooling... just sayin wink.gif

Ugh - one of the my fans turned out to be defective. Need to RMA.

Gonna work on my build tomorrow.


What do you think is the best fan layout? Right now, I'm going for the standard 2x front (intake), 2x bottom (intake), 1x side (soon to be 2x when I get a working Gentle Typhoon; intake), with 2x top (exhaust) and 1x rear exhaust. CPU cooler will be north-south with fans blowing to the top.

Hiyas, just joined to follow the thread.

Bitter sweet build for me.
Straightforward in some ways... questioning in others.
As stated, the good outweigh the bad.

Overall a great case. With plenty of room to mod (second time round).

I have just the 4 fans, 2 intake (on the back of the cages) and top and back as exhaust.
