I saw a video of a white Trooper with a window, I think they called it a Bradley. I'm hoping you come out with many colors of it. As of right now Storm has the Trooper, a full tower. The Sniper, a big mid tower. The Scout, a normal sized mid tower. Then the Enforcer, a smaller mid tower. Is there any plans for a SFF Strom? Or maybe a revised Scout? I think all the older Storm cases need an update with USB 3.0, nice cable grommets, and black front cables. I think the Scout is still the best lan case out, but just as a desktop it's starting to show its age some. One thing I would love to see is an option for a window with out fan holes. A lot of us have made our own, but you can buy a side panel with the window cheaper than what we can make one.

If they do a second Scout with all the stuff you mentioned it would be the ultimate mid tower air cooled case. Just either make it a little longer or have less optic drive bays so that you can have two hdd cages that are removable like many other cases (I think the Enforcer has the ability) which grant the ability to fit longer graphics cards. More space behind the motherboard tray and side panel would be great as well to go with rubber grommets for awesome cable management. If there was a little more spacing between the roof and the top of the motherboard that would also be welcomed as it would make it easier to unclip the fans of bigger coolers like my D-14 whenever I do the obligatory dusting or have to remove the heat sink. I can't wait though for the Striker to be released as it means a side window for the Trooper and it's white!

Striker! How could I forget that. For me, I would love to see a Scout II, in the past I said just make it out of the 690 II case with a Scout make over. This was so it could take 2x240 rads. Well CM Storm one upped that with the Trooper. So now I would be very happy with something about the same size as we have now, but like you said. Needs to be able to hold the longest GPU out there. The other thing that must fit is a H100. I would also like to see more of the rubber covering from the Trooper used, like 100% coverage in it. I can't believe we are having this conversation again, this is at least the third time it's been talked about, and 2 times a new Storm case comes out. The first was before the Enforcer, then it came out. Most of the Scout owners didn't like it. Then after the Enforcer, because we wanted a new Scout and not the Enforcer biggrin.gif. Then CM was talking about a new Storm case and we got the Trooper, just a bigger and better version of what we had talked about in here. Now CM show up again talking cases, what do we do, we talk Scout II biggrin.gif

CM Keep the Handles!!!! The Sniper had them, I loved it as most of the Sniper owner did. The Scout has them, we all love it. The Trooper has it, they love it, even if you did mess up by not allowing a 25mm thick fan to fit under it. The handle is one thing I think of when I here CM Storm.

BTW this is the Scout II I said CM needs to make.

The 690 II is an awesome case. If they did something like your picture (690 II in Storm clothing) that would be a fantastic upgrade and would fix pretty much every short coming of the Scout. If they added a side window option without fan grills like the Enforcer has, that would be epic as I like the window on the Enforcer. It would also be nice to be able to fit a 60mm rad in the roof but the only unfortunate thing would be that it would have to be taller which may or may not ruin the look of it and since this is a LAN case, you probably wouldn't want to be carting around something that had proper water cooling. The H100 is definitely a must to have support for since it is a really popular cooler and, in my opinion, isn't really proper water cooling so you don't have to worry too much about it breaking and leaking everywhere in transport however unlikely. And yes the handle has to stay. It is the best feature of the Storm series and a huge reason why I bought the Scout, well that and its sexy look. A better quality I/O front panel cover would be nice also as my plastic brushed aluminum piece was peeling on the right side the day I unboxed it and I'm afraid of it eventually falling off altogether leaving nothing but a horrible sticky film with dust and cat hair stuck to it.

Yeah bud.. rolleyes.gif Right; 5 week's.. lachen.gif LOL and watch!!! CMSSC members are going to see this and they are going to say: (" What, This???

I'm trying to bring them in on time so I can get my bonus from work to start my 'Trooper' build!!!

Now that's out of the way....


For the Scout II....

Better looking cross-hair thing in front....or none at all. Or drive bay covers all the way down like the Trooper. It just looks slicker that way.

Removable/modular hard drive bays.

Option for a mesh window side like the Sniper. In-Win (SP?) has a couple of cases with mesh grills that allow you to mount either one big fan or four 120mm fans.

If anything, AMD is now able to boast 'First 4ghz out-of-box CPU'. thumb.gif

Now considering one of these, or maybe the 6200, for future Stormfalcon II build. Not a fanboy, just believe in compitition. As in, hates the idea of an Intel monopoly! tongue.gif

Wow, now I know what every one was talking about biggrin.gif Well, this is the first time I ever held this CPU at a 4gig mark for over hour now. No stress testing, gaming or benchmarks have been involved yet!!! biggrin.gifproof.gif375

Nice! I find those Corsair H series coolers do a great job! thumb.gif......and that 4GHz mark, is a thing of beauty! smile.gif

Modeler's Brand
Double Density LED Tape
Review

About Modeler's Brand
Modeler's Brand is a small one man shop bring reasonably priced LED solutions to your projects. He has many types solutions from single LED's to Double Double Density LED Tape (no that is not a type-o, 6 LED's per inch!) to wiring accessories to model kits.

What Will Be Reviewed
I will mainly be covering the Smooth Double Density LED Tape in Red and Cool White along with a few small strips of other colors. I will be also cover some small strips of the regular DD LED tape, and a wiring solution.

The Website and Ordering
The website is the weakest part about his business. The website isn't up to par from what most people will be used to, it's pretty obvious that he has built the site him self as a low budget option. This is very normal for small, self ran e-tailers that are just starting out. It would be nice to see a nicer site as it could turn off new customers, but it's safe to say most people visiting it are there because of word of mouth. It is fairly easy to navigate to get where you want. The biggest turnoff is there is no automated check out or shopping cart. To order you must e-mail him. This has a big plus side to it, as you can ask questions before you order to make sure you get what you are really looking for. Payments are handled by Pay-Pal or money orders, so any worries about the checkout process should be put at bay. With my experience ordering from him, I received a reply with in 5 mins. and we e-mailed back and forth to ensure I was getting what I wanted and he was very professional. He was very helpful and never tried to push me into buying more than what I wanted or needed. Once I decided to make the order, he placed an invoice through Pay-Pal, and with in minutes I received it in my inbox. After I made payment I received a tracking number the same day. This brings us to shipping, all orders are shipped USPS Priority Mail, and Modeler's Brand does offer international shipping for all our friends abroad!

Packaging
I received my package in 2 business days, and it was in a USPS Priority box. I was pleasantly surprised upon opening the box, as I wasn't expecting to see a sealed bag with a invoice and a installation card!

About the Smooth Double Density LED Tape
First thing I should cover is these are sold as DIY and do not come pre wired. You must be able solder to install them and have connectors to what ever power source you plan on using. With that out of the way, the Smooth DD LED's have 3 LED's per inch, and one inch is equal to one segment. They come in many colors to fit your taste; Warm and Cool White, Red, Green, Blue, Amber, Ultra-Violet, Rose, and Hot Pink. You can cut the LED tape at each segment allowing you to make the strips as long or as short as you like, no more having to go with a smaller strip than what you want because it's an inch too long. The LED's are covered in a clear soft gel that protects the LED tape from scratches, dust, ect. The gel has a very nice side effect, as the light comes out of the LED's, it gets spread out by the gel. This ends up giving you a much smoother lighting than most LED's. More inline with CCFL's than most other LED lighting with out the use of an inverter, because the DD's run at 6-12 volts only pulling 20mA per segment. That means 1ft of the DD's will pull about 0.08amps, less than most case fans. This gives you many options for how you can power them. I plan on running the red off my fan controller that can adjust the voltage based off the PWM signal from my CPU fan header so the hotter my CPU is, the brighter the red will get! You could do the same with just a fan splitter cable. The white I plan on manually adjusting off the fan controller. For connecters most all of us have many molex connectors or old fans laying around that you can use, Modeler's is looking for some nice pass through molex connecters but has yet to find any at the time of this writing.

The strips come clearly marked with label on what color they are, but the tape it's self is not labeled.

Here is a closeup showing the LED segments and cut points. The positive and negative contact points are clearly marked for wiring. You can also connect as many strips off one power lead by wiring them together, you just need to solder jumpers from + to + and - to -
450

They come backed with 3M adhesive

Modeler's Brand also test the strip before shipment and this is where you'll want to solder so you don't mess up the gel coating.

Wiring
As I stated before the LED's do not come pre-wired and you must solder your own leads. I'm using leads from some old fans because I'm connecting them to my fan controller, but you can used some molex connector you have laying around also.

You can make you solder connections on the bottom side of the LED's so you don't have to mess up gel covering. The only thing about doing it like this you must rub the adhesive off the is covering the contact points.

400

I also ran some jumper wires to a second strip because he type is very flexible forwards and backwards, but side to side it is not. To do this all you do is connect the + to + and - to -

And here is the two strips all wired up.

Sample Colors

I've done my best to try to capture the color as close as possible, as most of you know many things will account for what I see and what you will see. Monitors, GPU's, ect, ect, ... will make a difference in the way the colors will show up. Also I was trying to just capture the color and not the brightness. Please note the lighting on the back, there is no hot spots, meaning you get a very even light much like CCFL's unlike most other LED's lighting solutions.

UV - I don't have much around the house that is UV reactive but found these paper clips had a couple color that worked. The UV is very bright, at night it will light up my spare room just from 5 segments (5 inches)

Amber - Very bright again, you could use this as orange also.
700

Blue - In the pic it looks a little darker than what it really is. This might be the brightest of all the colors.
700

Red - Again very bright, and it looks a little deeper red in person.
700

Cool White - This is a very white, white. The Warm White is a off white, please keep this in mind when ordering. As like all the others, it's very bright.

This is all for now and I will update soon, I'll also post when I do make updates.
