CM STORM TROOPER COOLING CONFIGURATION

Recommended Posts

I currently have a scout 2 and love it. However, when I just purchased a Corsair H100i v2, i could not fit it in the case (top mounted) as there was not enough clearance for the dual fan installation on the bottom of the radiator due to the mobo RAM sticks and another component. I realize this isn't the case fault, and looking to upgrade to a full tower anyway.

 

My question is:

Will the Storm Trooper accommodate a Z97X-Gaming 7 with a top mounted H100i v2 (with two fans mounted below the radiator?

 

Again, the issue was the cleaarance/installation of the due to components of the mobo, including ram sticks. Since the Storm Trooper is a full tower, does the ATX mounting position allow for clearance up top for the cooler/fan installation to clear the RAM sticks, etc. on the Z97X-Gaming 7 mobo?

 

Thanks.
