Elllooo!

I do too have CM storm trooper. I am looking to mod it out. add a upper window panel on the side.

Can anybody tell me how to unmount the handel.

here's some pics people!

I need to mount this 280mm radiator on top of the case so I can have 4 fans push pull. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The handle is riveted on. In order to remove it you have to drill the rivets out.

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. thumb.gif
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.... smile.gif
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.

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..

Has anybody actually managed to find what 'correct' voltage, amperes and what kind of LED is and should be used when replacing the LEDs?
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.

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. biggrin.gif


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 thumbsupsmiley.png (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. coolsmiley02.gif


I too am a Filipino. Go Pinoys!






PS. How do you add the 'Warning: Spoiler' to decrease the post size?

1. If you have a multimeter, you can simply measure the voltage over one of the leds.

2. The lights used on the outside of that case is called EL wire. I'm not completely sure how it works though, but their inverters can apparently get a bit noisy.

3. When you post a comment, you'll see there's a spoiler button above the editor. It looks like a black speech dialogue. Just click on it, then put whatever you want to be hidden between the "Spoiler!]" and the final "[/SPOILER".

PS. How do you add the 'Warning: Spoiler' to decrease the post size?

Well to answer your last question first, in order to hide things behind a spoiler you just type [ spoiler ] (without the spaces) before everything you want to hide, and then [ / spoiler ] after everything, once again without the spaces.

Now, moving on:

Front panel LEDs: The power button LEDs are just your standard run of the mill 3mm LEDs. Just about any 3mm LED with work for ya. The fan controller LEDs are a little trickier. They are SMD (Surface-Mount-Device) LEDs. This means that they don't have any 'legs' that run through the board, they just have solder pads that get soldered onto the top of the board. When I replaced mine I just used some SMD LEDs off of a scrap of LED strip that I had laying around.

Nameplate: There's many a way of going about doing this. What it looks like that that particular user did is taped off the letters on a piece of clear acrylic or plexiglass and then painted the rest black. Then he peeled off the tape, and voila!

EL wire lighting: There's a user not more than a dozen pages back I think that laid out a really nice tutorial on how to light the case up with the EL wire. smile.gif
EDIT: It's back on page 726. Ne1ld0 has a video and everything. Make sure to give him a rep!

Ask away if you have any more questions!

leds amps usually dont matter as they dont pull a whole lot anyway. so you should be just fine, it is done by soldering and they are all 5v usbs for the fan controler it just uses 3-5v if i remember correctly so yes again 5v

copper EL wire drill some hole run the wire and run it to an inverter google el wire to learn more about it. there is a walkthrough as to how he did it in the thread he made text and a vid
others have said 2 ways to do spoilers you can also just highlight the text you want and then click the spoiler button at the top of the edit pane. works for anything hyperlinks you highlight the text you want to apppear then click the hyperlink button and put in the web page

copper EL wire drill some hole run the wire and run it to an inverter google el wire to learn more about it. there is a walkthrough as to how he did it in the thread he made text and a vid
others have said 2 ways to do spoilers you can also just highlight the text you want and then click the spoiler button at the top of the edit pane. works for anything hyperlinks you highlight the text you want to apppear then click the hyperlink button and put in the web page

Well to answer your last question first, in order to hide things behind a spoiler you just type [ spoiler ] (without the spaces) before everything you want to hide, and then [ / spoiler ] after everything, once again without the spaces.

Now, moving on:

Front panel LEDs: The power button LEDs are just your standard run of the mill 3mm LEDs. Just about any 3mm LED with work for ya. The fan controller LEDs are a little trickier. They are SMD (Surface-Mount-Device) LEDs. This means that they don't have any 'legs' that run through the board, they just have solder pads that get soldered onto the top of the board. When I replaced mine I just used some SMD LEDs off of a scrap of LED strip that I had laying around.

Nameplate: There's many a way of going about doing this. What it looks like that that particular user did is taped off the letters on a piece of clear acrylic or plexiglass and then painted the rest black. Then he peeled off the tape, and voila!

EL wire lighting: There's a user not more than a dozen pages back I think that laid out a really nice tutorial on how to light the case up with the EL wire. smile.gif
EDIT: It's back on page 726. Ne1ld0 has a video and everything. Make sure to give him a rep!

Ask away if you have any more questions!

3. When you post a comment, you'll see there's a spoiler button above the editor. It looks like a black speech dialogue. Just click on it, then put whatever you want to be hidden between the "Spoiler!]" and the final "[/SPOILER".


A general question about EL wires, can they be cut down to size then connected together again like daisy chained?
What other material can be used except for clear acrylic or plexiglass to do that lit up name?
One more...How do I make a PSU cover? What from? And I want it to have a white carbon fiber look/feel
