I've been trying to get an answer to that one too.

Maybe you'll have better luck than I, as it seems to have fallen on deaf ears with my inquiry to this.

No it hasn't. As has been stated numerous times CoolerMaster has NOT made an official statement about it yet. Someone at CM made a post on FaceBook that we can expect it in the first half of this year and that is all that anyone knows at this point. We have absolutely no details about what it will be like or anything else at this time, and anyone who would know is bound by a confidentiality agreement so they couldn't divulge anything about it. You'll just have to be patient like everyone else and await the official announcement with details from CoolerMaster.

Thanks

But then the title of this thread is somewhat wrong if it's "maybe" the first half of this year verses "early 2011".

CM announces a new Storm case at the CES 2011 and when I ask them today when it's going to be available for sale they pretty much tell me to pound sand. Not a nice way to treat customers and they do fall somewhat short in customer service IMO.

Okay so i got my Dremel this weekend and I've been dying to use it. I'm thinking this weekend i would like to have a go at a simple mod and was thinking making my own side window might be the place to start? I have a question for this though. I read the window dimensioning on the front page but didn't see anything about thickness. What would be the appropriate thickness to use?

I had fun modding my Scout but now I have it put away for another time and went back to my Lian Li, here's a better picture of my 5.25 bay fan mod, it did good to blowing outside cooler air directly into the intake fan on my Frio.

The put that in the thread title so no one would start a new thread specifically for it or think that it wasn't included in this one when it does come out. With as little information as has been made available the title is as good as anything and not that misleading. Don't get your panties in a bunch about it. It's not like it's life and death or anything.

As a Man I don't wear panties (I better not be), so impossible for me to get them in a bunch - lol!

When I saw "early 2011" and I'm in the market for 2 cases, you can figure out the rest.

CM attitude towards me about a case they themselves announced and give me the brush off so no wonder there's confusion and such for this "fictional"
at this time case. I even referred a poster to this forum this evening from the CM forum who had questioned something about a case they've sold and still do now and hasn't even been given a response for 2 plus weeks by any CM customer service after numerous attempts.

Thanks again.

It attracts a lot of dust and I have no need for the extra cooling, especially not on the upper vent anyway as it wouldn't fit; blocked by CM hyper 212+ hsf.

Other than that, case is brilliant! Huge improvement from my 8 year (AGING would be an understatement) old Thermaltake Tsunami Dream case!

However, what should/can I do with the LED light button? If I replace the fans, that button won't do anything anymore. If I decided to go with some cold cathode lighting would it be pretty easy to run it to that switch?

Thanks!

If I wasn't such a Scythe Fan (Not literally a "fan"...KAZE!!! ), I'd probably go with the H50/60/70 and mount it in the front bay also.
But my cooler's pretty rarely seen, and I reckon if I throw a high power 1900RPM Slipstream or an Ultra Kaze 3k (and turn it down a bit), with maybe two pulls like it allows, it'd be awesome.
I might also rotate it so it has two pushes, and a single pull, even if it looks weird.



Like BdBanshee said, it's pretty easy to do, or get someone to do for you. I'm gonna once money stops being a huge issue for me.
As you're not really interested in the side intake aspect, it'll make it even easier (though it does aide the CPU and GPU intake alot by at least using a bottom fan, I found).

And yeah, my temps all-round dropped 10c when moving to this case.



That's looking real nice man, had that thread subbed for a while now.
I been watchin it too big fat willy.. love your work.
