CM Storm Trooper compatability

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I use many CM cases such as Cosmos II, Stryker and Trooper in X79 and Z97 builds. After many years, I'm inclined to build a proper Gaming machine (4790K) to play racing games like MotoGP, F1, etc.

 

Now the questions about Storm Trooper are:

 

1) cooler: does a Nepton 120XL or 240M or both fit properly in this case without any modding?

2) GPUs: any known issue with multiple cards? I mean, space or not enough internal air movement etc.

3) case stock fans: are these quiet enough? or should I need to buy additional fans from other makers? I'm looking for a quiet gaming build.

 

Please respond if this case fits good to my requirements.

 

Note: I'm keen on this case because of color compatability perspective. I chose components such as:

 

Asus Maximus VII HERO
G.Skill Trident X Series 32GB DDR3-2133
2 x Asus GeForce GTX 970 4GB STRIX
EVGA Supernova P2 1000W (red sleeved cables etc)
Asus ROG SWIFT PG278Q

To answer your questions:

 

1) Both fit, together. 120XL in the rear, 240M in the top. 

2) No issues, especially if you have the option to keep some space between the 2 cards.

3) They are standard fans. They do a decent job, but Silencio fans are a lot more quiet.

Appreciate your response, knud.

 

Regd. (3) They are standard fans. They do a decent job, but Silencio fans are a lot more quiet.

 

Are Silencio fans sold seperately? I'm not aware of this, so please confirm.

 

Thank you.

Hi Akula,

 

Not yet. But they will be (probably in January 2015).

 

Cheers, Pim

That's good news, Pim.

 

Could you please answer:

 

1) dB difference between Silencio vs. CM Storm Stryker/Trooper stock fans? Is it significant?

2) how much each Silencio case fan costs? (approx. for 200/140/120 mmm fans)

 

 

Thank you.
