Hello people! I'm very new, this is my first post, as you can probably see on the left.
I will be joining this exclusive club very soon indeed. I will be buying a CM Storm Stryker within a couple of days.
I have many plans for the Stryker and i'd like to get your best advice on it.
As im a 'plan first then do' person, i'd like to try and get 90% clear before I do anything or even buy it.
Therefore I have several questions that need answering.
Okay lets start.... I want to change the front panel/power button LED from red(I believe) to white. How to do it?
I want to have a PSU cover when I built my system in this case. How do I build one / Where to buy one(UK)?
That's all so far. But I guarantee that I will have more in a couple of hours.
So moving on. I have most probably gone through every single page of this thread and I have picked out the ones that I want to question; how they did it and what they used, you know, questions along that line.
Firstly about the LED on the front panel/console.
Has anybody actually managed to find what 'correct' voltage, amperes and what kind of LED is and should be used when replacing the LEDs?
Changing the LEDs on the control panel should be simple. They are surface Mounted and so easy to solder and de Solder.. Finding the Correct LED's might be the hard part..
But I have never tried to look for any.. Good Luck with it..
I'd like to change mine (when I get the case) in to white.
Secondly, again about the LED on the front panel/console.
How did you change yours to a blue?
Changed the LED - unsoldering them? In that case what amperes on LED did you use?
Any other way?
Thirdly, this custom lit name plate on the front of the case. Very nice by the way.
I'd like to know what you used and how you made/did it. I'd love to have this on the case.
Lastly, the lighting on edge of the case is...AWESOME!!

Got myself a trooper a few months ago and I finally have a complete computer built so I thought I'd join the club!
I proudly Present my ever so humble, first ever build.
Blue, blue and moar blue. Also White.
Got the idea for the EL wire in the grooves from the dude who made that green case. You know the one I mean. Quite clever and looks really nice I think. Just holding it in place with sticky tack for now. Any suggestions on something to attach it with?
And in case you didn't notice, got mahself a blue power button logo *****ezzuh
(I couldn't be arsed to change the power/HDD LEDs).
I opted to hide the optical drive behind one of the front dust filter things since I don't use it much. Looks cleaner too.
I also chose the Sentry Mix fan controller cause its made of the same rubberized material as the case and is pretty much the same color (i.e. It looks good)
Got some damn freaking bright cold cathodes lighting up the top grill that are supposed to be a deep blue apparently (not quite
as bright as in the picture but still). Please dont ask where I got the CCFLs or the EL wire, my friend gave them to me so I gots no clue where they came from.
How did you do it?
What did you use?
Im sorry for the long as heck post. Its just good to get it all out rather than losing your train of thought.
And please I would really appreciate it if all of the questions above are answered. It would relieve a lot of tension that is going around my head about lighting mods for this case.
Thank you very much and I hope to be accepted to the club, when I get my case.
I too am a Filipino. Go Pinoys!PS. How do you add the 'Warning: Spoiler' to decrease the post size?
