The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 826

post #8251 of 12478
I don't think I will retire the case though for at least 10-15 years even then I'm not sure it will get fully retired. It's too good a case to let go of. I was looking at the cosmos 2 but the budget never went that far. Still for under £100 with free delivery at the time I got it was a bargain.

I would like to have a nice window on the side. And a paint job. Would mean removing the components but its not big deal would take a short period if time. So far projected cost depending in the CPU I get for it is about £1400-£1500. That was alot of time spent looking for the best for less.

I hope the ROG rip- MSI re-make series is better.

from what most of the reviews are saying, the msi gd65 board is actually really really good at overclocking, and the pricing on it makes it an amazing deal. Also from the same reviewers, the RoG series isnt as good as it used to be for the z87 series of boards, same high price, but less features, or features that just dont WOW people like the msi board.

i still went with ROG though because im familiar with it.

I'm only speaking in terms of the z77-g45. I have yet to do any research on the newest lines of motherboards.

Got some goodies in the other day. I went a head and swapped out my LEDs. ...Let's just say it wasn't the greatest success, but it works. I accidentally broke off the contacts for the middle fan LED. rolleyes.gif

I plan on ordering some soldering equipment and a new board eventually. Luckily, I had the foresight to order extra LEDs. So once I get all the stuff in and get the bugs worked out, I'll do a write up. On a side note, it doesn't look too noticeable with just the middle LED not working.

Some guy mounted the stock rear 140mm fan from his Stryker to the back of his HDD cage...

How'd this fool pull that off?! wth.gif Want to get the max air flow possible un-modded out of this chassis.

I watched that video awhile ago.. I read through comments back then and he said he used zip ties to mount the 140..cause someone else asked him.

Otherwise thats a nice build you have there

Ahh, I was afraid of that. So it will be slightly harder to mount a 140 there with the drive cage facing front.

..Come to think of it, with the fan up against the sides of the cages, he must be getting very little air flow out of that fan anyways...

you can always do what i did. for a while. put construction paper over the back vent. it still draws air in the front side and pushes it in your case. helped my temps

So I am switching my hard drive bays to pull in air from the front finally ( everything is in stock positions ), but I wanted to maybe get some more fans for it. Best places for fans, how many, and what sizes ( for an all air build )? Thanks
