The Official Cooler Master Storm Trooper / Storm Stryker Club - Page 999

post #9981 of 12471
While we're on this subject, what size rad would fit in the front without the hdd cages installed? I was hoping to get a 280 in the front. The pics I see with a 360 in the front look like there still some room left around the rad.

After some looking around, I think I'll just go with a 240. The fan selection for 280 isn't near as good.

Some pics would be awesome Mega smile.gif
I might need to re-think the Res/pump placement though, not enough room due to GPU's.

Hmm, I have a Fan controller and a Blu-ray drive atm so maybe only having a 280mm rad instead?

I'm planning on a 80mm x 240mm Monsta rad in the front as well but i'd like to have as much rad space as possible to keep the heat down from my chip and GPU's.

post #9990 of 12471
Hi guys,

New to this forum. I've picked up a Storm Stryker with the intent to purchase a Storm Trooper over the next couple of days as well and wanted to share my experiences with it.

The very first motherboard standoff I attempted to put in broke off on me. I've been doing this for some 18 years now. I've never ever broken a standoff. Imagine my surprise. After a slight grumbling when I realize there's no way to remove it but to drill it out. I take care of it and continue on, thinking maybe I just put too much pressure on it.

Then another one breaks off. And. Another. That's three! After the 2nd one I started to go really slowly and carefully and after the third I gave up trying to screw them all the way in and stop at the slightest hint of resistance. Some went all the way in, most are off by a few millimeters. The motherboard definitely is not mounted flat and is flexing in a few areas because of it. But it fits, it's safe and everything still works out. I read I'm not the only one who had this happen to them so that points the finger at sub-standard quality parts provided by Cooler Master.

In retrospect I should've stopped after the 2nd one broke and gotten different standoffs. As it turns out, I had run out and the stores were closed. Bad luck.

The rubber grommets are nice but aren't staying put. They are hardly "abused" and "worn out" after only two days and, again, it seems I'm not the only one.

It really left a bad taste, though. I really don't want to tear it all down and return the case to the store and start all over again with a different one so I decided to forge ahead and make do with it.

Now I'm also back to square one on deciding which case to get now that the Storm Trooper is off the table. I can't justify the risk.

All in all it's very disappointing. It had such potential. This is shaping up to become one of the less enjoyable PC builds. The case looks so nice on the outside, and still does, but I'm going to cringe if I ever need to get back in there to make changes.

I hope you guys are faring better!

Ciao,
G
