That's pushing it. Would depend on your motherboard i think. My standard ek-coolstream-extreme in push/pull (3 fans on top of case 3 fans on bottom) has barely enough clearance as it is. Max V form.

So i'm looking into upgrading my case, i currently have an old cosmos 1000 i picked up for cheap off ebay. These cases have really caught my eye and look great! I was just wondering though what are the differences between the stryker and the trooper? I think i've seen the normal trooper now being sold with a window on overclockers.co.uk so i'm still confused on the differences. Also was wondering how this case is for cooling as that seems to be one of my biggest concerns with my current case at the moment.

thanks for the reply, the 45mm rad will go inside the case and the fans above in pull - (fans outside the case, handle removed, tiny tom logans 360mm mod)

I dont think i worded my question very well, my fault.

Would 45mm thick rad be ok with one set of fans in pull?

The Stryker is white, it has a window, and it lacks the e-sata port that the Trooper has. The interiors are identical. I can't compare the cooling with what you have, but I'm running mine with the stock fans (and the stock 120mm from my old Enforcer) all at their lowest speeds. Just keep in mind my rig isn't overclocked, except for the factory oc on my GPU.

Nice case - I'm looking at using one for a file server. I have some questions though...
- with the hard drive cages in sideways (i.e. with fans blowing out the side of the case), is it possible to remove a 3.5" drive without remove the drive cage that it is in?
- is it possible to mount the drive cages facing forwards, but with the fan on the inside of the case, i.e. over the motherboard?

Thanks!

1. yes
2. yes. but you can't put any drives in there (where will the cables go?)

yes as long as you get good rad fans ( high static pressure )

you will love it, what the other user said is the differences.

also you can get the main panel to match for the toorper but not the back panel

Yes! With exterior fans and handle moved/removed.

Get a decent tipped drill bit, tapered punch, & some oil, and drill out the rivets, nice and slow.

Please don't buy Corsair fans for the love of christ, get some high quality PWM fans and a Swiftech splitter.

haha, yeah i wont be buying the corsair fans. I dont like the look tbh. WIll be sticking with my Akasa Vipers, saves me some pennies and they have reasonably good static pressure, so should do fine. Unless you have any other suggestions?

hmm, i looked at the swiftech pwm splitter, but i'll probably stick with my fan controller in the short term.
