Stryker has windowed side panel (no optional side fans there) and is white,
while Trooper is black and has a mesh side panel (2 optional 120mm fans can be installed there).

So cooling wise, Trooper has a little bit more airflow (though recently I bought a windowed panel for my Trooper because it looks cool and I can see the inside of my PC without the need to remove the side panel).
also stryker does not have front i/o esata port

this is very good advice. disk drives really don't get that hot, especially if you run SSDs, and the dedicated cross-vent for the hard drive cages provides a nice amount of configurability but little effectiveness. I like to think of computer cases as a sort of air tunnel, with a majority of the air moving in a directional, fluid-like flow from front to back and/or bottom to top. I usually play around with different configurations when I'm in my case doing anything major. recently having swapped motherboards, I changed how my disk drives were positioned.. previously, I had my 2 SSDs and 1 HDD in the 3 bottom slots of the bottom HDD cage, with the top 5 slots open. simply by spacing the drives out within the bays (i.e. instead of being in slots 1, 2, & 3 - they are now in slots 1, 4 & 7) I lowered my temps by 5C! it takes a lot of trial and error to optimize the airflow and temps of a given rig. there are, of course, rules of thumb which will apply in a general way to most rigs. but, for the utmost airflow and lowest temps, some custom adaptations are probably going to be required determined on your hardware configuration.

also, while swapping the CPU between boards.. I was appalled to see this mad.gif
(I had brought my rig to a PC repair shop because I was having trouble with the RAM posting a few months ago)

protip. do not take your pc to anyone, do it your self !

this would be a case by case basis, depending on vrm cooling and what not.

however less fans is not nessisarrily the answer for a quiet build, good fans are, several cheap fans will be noisier and less usefull *they will have to work more * to do the same job as good fans, meanwhile with good fans you can usually have their speed much lower / quieter

Meaning, you wouldn't want every fan to be an intake nor would you want every fans to be an exhaust. Place your intakes in the coolest places in your case (front and bottom, maybe side panel) and exhausts near the heat-generating components of your rig (always top and back). this will bring the coolest air in and exhaust the hottest air.
huh? generally the best for rads is intake but again depends on your layout.

you always want positive pressure in your case it helps with dust, however you can have too much ( more air in then out )

Yeah I'm planning on having 2 loops, that was my main question originally, where I would fit the cylinder reservoir/pump combo. Any thoughts on that one?
many places depends on what your willing to do .....

as for the fans... yes it does help but fans are a case by case basis and usually the best advice is your own on a trial basis.... trial and error

I'm not sure it will fit there, http://www.frozencpu.com/products/21480/ex-pmp-263/XSPC_Photon_170_Tube_Glass_Cylinder_Reservoir_Pump_Combo_D5_Vario.html?tl=c97s152b49

I'm not willing to do that much modding, first timer here.

I did a bit more useless customization I built and audio sensor chip and put it inline with the lighting. I plan on coding something to where i can run it from the actual computer. Its buggy but its a start. Here is the video of it kind of functioning.

At the time I used to use my case as a footrest adn the P280 would have caved if I had done that. It felt cheap so I refunded and purchased a Trooper...absolutely no regrets other than I built my rig before the Stryker was released....

lol glad i wasn't the only one that used mine as a foot rest... i just swapped cases months ago and had 3 builds in my p182 thumb.gif

Mine was fine except the front usb ports were broke and I was bored of it. Sold it all at once so I was happy to start all over.

it is not about overkill it is about having the best you can get and get out of it, never be ashamed. besides most important is if it does what you need it to !
