Now in Benchmark Reviews.com for the CM Storm Trooper, ' David Ramsey' gave the Trooper a Final Score: 9.0 out of 10. His point's on 'CONS' are also valid about the Trooper; just not as many as he has on the 'Cosmos II' chassis...

I always trusted David Ramsey's reviews at Benchmark Reviews.com.. He really covers the hole spectrum when he reviews something..

I guess it really comes down to what a person tastes are as well the functionality of the case... Either way I'm a

I will get uv cathodes along with a set of a custom watercooling cpu/gpu set.
I am missing the acrylic glass so I'm taking a temporary picture.
The black outline of the window is kind of done half ass due to paint tape made a bubble =(
Anyway, color scheme next week with watercool stuff will be green / red.

Thanks for the links to the reviews! I am definitely liking the Storm Trooper and I feel a lot better knowing I won't have any problem with the motherboard size.

After more experience with the case, I can add another flaw to this case. The rubber coating begins to come off after just 2 months of usage.

I have an odd noise coming from my case that sounds like a bearing - I'm still trying to figure out where it is coming from - a bad fan or the HDDs vibrating on me.

Yea. me too.. That ATX stuff can be confusing.. The motherboard companies want to name a board size after their board sometimes.

I still think the trooper case is better looking. IMO it is much more aggressive looking than either the Cosmos 2 or the Lian Li V2120. I am going to be doing a build in march using the trooper so i cant join the club here yet, but i was wondering about doing some extra lighting on the chassis, what will i need to get for hardware and how does one power said hardware. I would at least like to light up the internals of the top cover just aft of the handle and add some "ground effects" below the case. Red to match the rest of the color scheme i'm using, but nothing super bright. I want it bright enough to show off the top but not too overpowering.
post #818 of 12393
One thing else while i'm thinking it... Is it possible to have a lighting setup controlled by the Troopers built in led fan controller so that would do everything?
