Thanks. Yea I tried AS SSD and it is giving me the same results. Do you or anyone else on this thread have the x dock? Any chance you guys could run the speed test on the x dock?... Hotswaping is set up and works. What other options could have been turned off that would throttle read speeds be like 80 percent ? My MOBO is Asus Rampage V Extreme.

I have some problems with my 2 USB3.0 ports on the front. Sometimes the works and sometimes they wont work at all. I have checked the cables and connectors to the MB and everything is okay.
USB2 ports are working as they should.
I have 2 USB3 ports on my MB (back of the computer. They working good.

I maybee buy a usb 3 hub instead of use the front ports. I only usi it for 2,5 inch hdd and smal stuff.
I tried to connect the Keybord, mouse, mousepad, headset and gamepad. Tried with diffrent hubs but non of the dident work.
I useing Razer Croma products so the pull some power to. But i got tolld they are not designed for this. They are designed for harddrives usb memories and smal stuff.
Are anyone agree or dissagree on thet?

Recent problem? I'd guess the physical ports might be worn out, these cases are not new anymore. See if you can buy new ones from CM, they'll probably offer them for sale. I doubt power delivery is the problem. USB is normally rated for 500mA (some ports are higher to accommodate faster charging). If the accessory you use is within that limit it won't be a problem.


Or if you're up for that, you might be able to find a way to bend the pins so they make proper contact again.


EDIT: Oh, and mistershan, sorry but I don't use mine.

So I had a cable get ripped out of one of my front panel USB's and destroy the port. Does anyone know if you can just buy that board and replace it? I was starting to look into getting a new CPU Mobo and Ram and just using this case again but now with the front ports (which I use alot) damaged I may add a new case to the list. Although I have been very happy with mine over the last 5 years and have no need to get a new case.

They used to have those things for sale. If not anymore, see if you can take a soldering iron to it.

Hi guys!

I have an old model trooper and I'm looking for HDD brackets for it (the tool-less ones that you can just snap a 3.5 in) I'm hoping you can help me find a few.

Thanks!

Once the majority of a cheek is separated I will use a section of a cardboard box from a mini fridge as a spatula.

I'm really nervous.

First, I have to say thanks to my buddy JKuhn for mentioning me in this post which is how I found out about it (even a year later).
Jefffydee, you have blue and red cathodes so basically super bright police lights. (I'm not a fan of cathodes, I like LEDs for lighting up the whole case, even RGB LEDs)
However, I'm a big fan of sound activated lighting. I have a sound activated power inverter that powers my lime green EL wire which brings me to my next point. I also love EL accent lighting such as your strips.
You asked what are other popular mods for this case: PSU shroud which you mentioned, LED case feet for underglow lighting, I like to use a specific gauge of super-bright EL wire in the grooves on the front and top of the case. Those are some easier popular mods. Other mods that are not so easy: replacing LEDs on the Power Button and fan controller, removing the HDD cages and cutting the HDD cage supporting wall(s) inside the case for front mount radiator.

I know I'm a bit late on repling to this post, but if you have any lighting questions like how can use these EL strips on my PC, let me know.
Also, I'd love to see how these EL strips turn out. Not sure where exactly inside or outside the case you plan on using them. We love pictures of custom PCs!

Of course the lack of some settings there is still some investment in aesthetics but it is far from me I think the procedure is beautiful and perfect.
GOGOGO PHOTOS!

Greetings, Fuzzion762! I'm very happy for you and I'm glad you are excited about your awesome CM Stormtrooper case. I see you are planning on adding orange EL wire to your case which looks good in your profile pic, but would look even better once finished. I love my own lime green EL wire and sound activated power inverter. If you have any questions about adding EL wire to your case, just let me know. I will answer anything you need to know. I have a few tips/tricks as I've been there, done that.

Hope to see more pics of your PC when completed!

It's sure been a while. Lots of things got stuffed up with the VB migration, and of course quite a few people left the forum (don't know how many came back after a while). But, at least most of the issues have been sorted out by now.
