The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 870

post #8691 of 12478
After owning my trooper for a year and then giving it to a friend I decided to get a Fractal R4 and was unhappy with that. So I bought a Stryker.

Sheet metal feels thinner a year later and the case came in dented. I could not dent my trooper easily but this one is definitely more flimsy. thinking.gif

The good thing about Hydra pro is that I can control more than 5 fans due to the high output power.

I totally agree. CM fans just don't look impression, their LEDs patterns just don't stand out to others. It is a shame that BitFenix Spectre Pro fans won't work with the LED controller. They do have a 2-pin connector for LEDs, but it's a different type of connector. They come default with a jumper connected so you don't have to worry at all about the 2-pin connector if you want LEDs to stay on all the time. You can control the LEDs on/off ability on Spectre Pro fans if you also have a BitFenix Recon fan controller or that other controller BitFenix makes.

If it works on Recon, that would probably solve this problem, but it only works on Hydra pro which is kind of a bummer. Hydra pro only has slidable fan control with no temperature sensors, what the recon does have.
I still can't find any reason why the Recon doesn't support the LED control, though. So much trouble now. frown.gif

I just wanted to note that my Scythe Case fans (that are hooked to the stock controller) only spin when the controller is set to 4/6th's of the way on.

Which Scythe fans? And does that happen with other fans too? Seems like a faulty pcb

Back in the day I had 7 Scythe GT 1450rpm hooked up the case fan controller and had no issues at all.

Hmm, interesting. I think I have found something. tongue.gif

Instead of using the LED control button on the case, there is a 5.25" bay called the Lamptron Hummer 5-port military switch. It has total of 5 military switches on it that allows you do connect or disconnect a 12V molex. The interesting part of this is that the switches itself are not 'force-powered', meaning that any kind of DC voltage under 12 can be plugged on, like any LED, EL-wire or the casefan's LEDs of Spectre pro.

If I buy this, I don't need to mess around with 5v coil relays and can switch almost anything. The design itself also looks pretty cool!

Slip Stream... You can tell they are getting the pulse power, as they just kinda rock band and forth, but it requires a good bit of power through the controller to get them spinning.

(slip stream's suck, they tick, click, and wurr at low rpm)

you can install the black ice stealth gt with two SP120s in push. You can mount fans on the top for a push pull configuration but they will either need to be slim fans, or you have to get a dremel and mod the top part of the case.
