Well crap.... ya I was going to make my own but thought this would be faster. I do not mind making my own but will have to make it custom for the water pump and lines. Ya got to keep both GTX 690 etc cool..smile.gif

@Knight091, that's a nice computer and all but you are aware this is the Storm Trooper/Stryker thread, right?

So I got my Storm Stryker All Built, but I decided to keep the side fans pointing in the same direction(left to right), but I was wondering If anyone could send me a link on how to add a 3rd Fan (Behind the HDD Cage From the Front Point of View) To Pull Air In.

why not install a fan in the bottom?

Well if you kept your harddrive cages sideways then you'd have to mount fan(s) to the steel brackets that hold the harddrive cages in place. Even though this could easily be done with zipties, I wouldn't recommend it cause how much air do you think you'd be actually pulling into your case through the steel brackets?

This on the other hand is a great idea for what you are trying to do. There's even a nice filter on the bottom of the case to help supply nice clean air into your case. You can install one or two fans in the bottom and still be able to keep your toolbox in your case. However, if you do keep the toolbox, I'd only recommend install one fan in the bottom towards the middle because air from a front bottom fan would be immediately blocked by the toolbox.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

I'm about to begin my first build and have decided on the CM Storm Stryker as my case. Now since it is my first build, I'd like to stick to air cooling (fans) as I'm a novice. Liquid cooling looks far too complicated and I wouldn't want to mess it up as I'm spending quite a bit. From what I understand the Stryker has space for 6 fans. I've been looking at replacing the big 200mm fan with 2 x 120mm white led fans. I also want to add 2 x 120mm fans at the bottom, if space permits. Would a 200mm fan on the bottom make for sense? I assume a 200mm fan would fit on the bottom since the top can. My idea is to have air enter through the bottom and be expelled through the back and top fans. Regarding the front fans, is it better to keep them on the side or have them facing forward. I don't have a gazillion hard drives to install. I'll be using a 120-180GB (haven't decided yet) SSD for the OS and games I like. Most of my junk will dwell in the 1TB hard-drive. So I feel with that with most my hard drive cages being empty would it be better suited to have the fans face the front. Are 2 fans the limit in this area? Can fans be fitted on the sides, where the mesh is located as well as the front? Do I have to remove something a hard-drive cage if I want to fit 2 fans on the bottom? Will the built-in fan controller be able to run 6 fans and will I have enough cabling to plug them onto the motherboard?

Currently my build is looking like this:

I have 2 sp120s in the front blowing The air to the back. Then two sp120s in the bottom blowing in air. Two sp120s on the top on my 240mm rad blowing air out and a AF140 in the back blowing air out..
You can not fit a 240mm on the bottom only 2 120s..And I found the static pressure fans really do help push and pull through the fan filters. Just something for you to think about.. smile.gif

if you are gonna game alot i would recommend a caviar black, or blue if on budget. 2 top fans will make your system much louder than 1 200mm
the caviar black is pretty close to ssd speeds so i would recommend to buy a 120gb ssd and put your OS and the programs that you use the most there, and all your games on the caviar black. i wouldnt really recommend XFX, they are known to use cheap components, if you want a good psu buy a seasonic or a corsair psu. the amount of fans you are adding is very useless and will make your rig very noisy, unless you would have like 4xcrossfire 4 fans is more than enough
