Also after watching the newegg review of the case, it looks like longer GPU's such as the 12in one they tested, come out right over top of the cable management grommets. I see that being a HUGE problem.

What do you guys think?

everything on this case is changeable. I put all blue led fans in place of the red ones, changed all the stock red leds to blue etc etc. when i had the stock heatsink of my HIS 7970 it barely reached the rubber grommets and its one of the longer cards out there so no i dont think youll have any trouble with cable management.

storm trooper is a boss case and id recommend it over anything else 100% of the time.

What other LEDs in the case are red?

As far as interchangeability goes, I'm going to have to order a few new fans. The stock fans that came with my current case all have molex connectors, but no 3 pin

it does but it doesnt take much time or experience.

It cost me a total of about $1.25 for the leds to replace them, it only took a few minutes to replace them all. Having steady hands is a plus tongue.gif im a welder so i guess it came naturally even though i dont do much soldering. You shouldnt have much trouble at all unless you accidentally stab the soldering iron through the entire case somehow lol:thumb:

I wouldn't even know what to do though. I literally have never even seen a soldering iron lol.

I think I'll play it safe and leave those two LEDs alone tongue.gif

Does the storm trooper have room to clear the Hyper 212 Evo?

You should be able to find measurements for the case on CoolerMasters website as well as the dimensions on Newegg or wherever you buy them from. The Storm Trooper is not a basic or cheap case, it has support for the latest components and some of the bigger hardware out there.

If budget is a huge part, I would honestly not be looking at spending this money on a full tower, especially if your not going to be able to afford good components, they should come first.

It's not that hard, why not have a look on google & youtube to learn, you don't have to do it right away, just learn over a period of time.

The INWIN is not good, I'm sorry but I think they look horrible and they're really not worth the money they charge. As for the storm trooper, it's literally the heaviest case I've ever used / seen, I used a stryker once for a build and instantly regretted it, I'm not by any means a skinny or weak guy & with a full setup in this, It's absolutely ridiculously bulky & heavy.
