Well that, and your trooper is going to be amazing, not stock smile.gif

I am planning to water cool my CPU for now. If EK releases a mobo block, I may add that as well. I want to get all my wires created custom and sleeved and then go from there. I bought acrylic tube and 2 primochill fittings to see how I like it and I will decide if I want to go that route or with standard tubing.

Thanks. Please let me know what you think bout the fittings and tubing. Im still undecided on the fittings. I might consider the primochill rigid tubing and fittings. Only thing I didnt like on those fittings is that they look huge unlike the bitspower ones.

They do look huge, but I've heard people say they aren't as bad as they look. I'll let you know.

]Hi all,

I got my CM storm trooper about four days ago, 184 US dollar with shipping.



Upgrading from cm storm scout because my new graphic card 7970 vapor-x didn't fit in. I really like the space now.

One thing I didn't like which is when I lift the case it's not balancing, instead it's tilting from the back.

Like this :

You may of already noticed, but it has two handles. The big one on top, and a stealth one in the back of the top.

I found that but I was afraid it was not the right way to do it and might break the top cover redface.gif

Thank you

But maybe in the future I might, so gotta be prepared biggrin.gif. But I guess I might have to go for a pump/res combo given that there's not enough space as you showed me in the pic. Btw, You could try velcrostrap that HDD at the back and sleeve the cables to match the color scheme. And what rad is that at that top?

Yeah, I recently upgraded to an EVGA G2 1300w as part of the migration to tri-sli. It's about as tight as it gets down there. My hose from GPU link to bottom rad is 1mm from hitting.

What are the WC components have you ordered? Are you intending to put the rad at the bottom? As for me, I'll go for the PrimoChill Primoflex Advanced LRT tubings. Still undecided on the pump & res. confused.gif

Why would you need a mobo block to cool a Maximus VI Formula. There's already the integrated Crosschill VRM that can be water-cooled.

You still managed to get it done & running. thumb.gif

I have read mixed reviews on whether or not the coating in that block will hold up over time to prevent the aluminum from entering the loop. I bought it for its looks and other features, not the built in water block. I have ordered an EK Supremecy Acetal-Clean block, Alpha cool ST30 radiator, Swiftech D5 PWM pump and Monsoon dual bay D5 reservoir (version 2). I haven't bought fittings yet because I'm not sure if I will do the primochill tube or primochill rigid acrylic tube. I'll play with the acrylic stuff I ordered and if it works, order more fittings for it. If not, standard tube.

I myself was concerned about corrosion since the Crosschill VRM is anodized aluminum. I asked JJ from Asus via his own Youtube channel regarding the aluminum block in the mobo. This is what he replied
Quote:
"the waterblock uses a special anti corrosive coating which is specifically designed for this type of usage ( water cooling ). This in combination with a anodizing process helps to ensure great performance and compatibility and no issues with water cooling configurations. You can feel confident in the design and its ability to ensure electrolytic chemical reaction between metals. Thanks for the view and support.
Plus there's also the anti-corrosive additive such as Swiftech HydrX that you can use just to be on the safe side. smile.gif

The AlphaCool ST30 is an excellent choice. Good enough for Push only at the top. Won't interfere with the mobo on Trooper. But not sure if it's enough for CPU + GPU though.
