Not sorcery, skill biggrin.gif
You can put 1 of the rotaries very easily, the second one is a little bit complicated... You must turn the first one towards the second hole and put the second rotary in that hole.. You twist it in until it hits the other one, and than you fixate the bottom part (shown on the pict) with your hand or what ever (I used pliers with some tape on them to prevent scratching), and turn the top part in first position.. Than you twist it again, hold it, put it back and repeat until it fits tightly.. Last step is to put compression's on top and you are ready to rock thumb.gif
You must twist in and twist the top part back, cause if you try to twist just the bottom part, you will get double the resistance (from the block's thread and the bottom compression part of the rotary).

can any one guide me how xspc rasa 360 kit fit in cm storm trooper?
post #8576 of 12477
Wow, need some help here guys frown.gif

The Scenario:

Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker
+
H100i
+
3x Noctua NF-F12
+
1x Gelid Solutions Slim 12 PL

The Goal:

Mount the H100i to the top of the case in push-pull, with 2xNoctua NF-F12 and the radiator inside the case, and 1xNoctua NF-F12 and 1xGelid Slim on the top of the case.

The Problem:

1) Cooler Master, in all their infinite wisdom, decided to put a metal brace across one of the top fan mounts. The height of the brace too low for 25mm thickness fans and only allows for ~17mm thickness fans to be installed.

2) The long radiator screws that Corsair packages with the H100i do not thread all the way up to the flat top of the screw. The threads only go up about halfway, so 13-14mm. The Gelid slim fan is 15.8mm.

3) If I want to mount my fan to the radiator, the screws are too long for the slim fan, and the threads do not go high enough that I can use washers.

4) If I mount the radiator first, I can no longer install the slim fan the "regular way" (by screwing short, thick fan screws through the case to bite into the plastic of the fan shroud) because the radiator is there instead of open space...

5) If I mount the fan first, then there are rounded screw heads sticking out from the underside of the top of the case, which offsets the radiator and puts uneven pressure on it. I also will not be able to screw the radiator on that side, because the holes for the screws are now taken up by the fan's screws.

The Plea for Halp:

HALP! How can I possibly mount this slim fan and the H100i?

Obviously, different length screws would do the trick, but I have no idea what the nomenclature of radiator screws are or what length I need (more than 15.8mm because it has to screw through the case metal width and into the radiator a bit, but what length is that and does it even exist?) and I haven't been able to find even the nomenclature for "regular" 25mm fan-width radiator screws!

I could cut the damned metal handle off, but that's an absolute last resort and..makes me feel bad about buying the slim fan...

I'm really at a loss here about what to do... Can anybody help me?

Just take one of the fan screws go down to your local hardware shop and they will be able to match the thread for a longer one. They are cheap so just grab a few different lengths and use what suits.

Hello all, looked into building my own comp for the first time and found this thread while browsing for cases. As soon as I placed eyes on the stryker and trooper cases i knew what i wanted! Especially after seeing all the great builds on this tread and all the info and help you all give each other!
