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!

Probably you got a bad piece or may be not, did you use the small tool provided in the accessories box for installing the standoffs, mine were also very tight but after first two threads it went in easily, an easy solution is to apply little amount of motor oil on the threads and screw in the stand-off, then remove the stand-off then clean the stand-off and mounting hole with some micro-fiber cloth. In my opinion paint in the threads is generally the reason and brass breaks very easily when pressure is applied:).

No, I didn't use the tool...didn't know it was supposed to come with one. I'll definitely try your oil trick next time if this ever comes up again.

Thanks,
G

I also thought there was something wrong with my standoffs before I've done my Cristal Toxin mod (cause I used a taller ones than), until I saw that little tool for a screwdriver installation and then all went normal.. And no "normal" amount of pressure should be able to break them off when they are screwed in all the way..

You could try contacting CM about those standoffs, their support is apparently excellent. Someone else also complained about it here, and after telling CM about it they sent him a whole replacement case even though he also drilled the standoffs out like you did.

I wouldn't toss the Stryker/Trooper out if you really like the cases, they are very nice. The problem you had was obviously a bad batch of brass hardware which you could have called CM and had replaced or purchased your own new hw. Usually all hw that comes with anything these days was the part they skimped on for cost, it's unfortunate but true.

My stryker arrived today and boy I'm impressed this thing is huge, dwarfs my old CM690. Even came with a 200mm fan on the top which I wasn't expecting (thought it was just the front 2 and rear). The build construction and paint quality is absolutely amazing, the only thing I am disappointed about is the 5.25 external bays are screw in and not quick release like my old CM690 apart from that though I'm incredibly happy with my purchase and looking forward to installing my new build into it this evening!

If you really want the quick-release, you should be able to mod the Stryker. I don't know about the 690, but to get the release brackets of the Enforcer in you just need to do a bit of precise cutting, and bend two tabs to hold each bracket in place.

Oh, and I agree about the size. The 690 and Enforcer (my old case) are both mid-towers so they should be about the same size, and the Stryker indeed dwarfs it. The only downside for me is the weight.

Too much work for me for the sake of a few screws lol

Just reading all my manuals at the moment and watching some youtube vids so I'm prepped and planned for this build as it's been a while since I built a new rig, hoping I have enough cables for everything

Just keep in mind that the motherboard in the Stryker is higher so if you don't have 24-pin and CPU power extensions (or long cables) that might be a problem.
