CM Storm Trooper – Water Cooling Options (Part 2 – Floor-Mounted Radiator)
The CM Storm Trooper is one superbly-designed PC case. I have said in my overview of the case that its aesthetics aren’t really my style, but going far beyond that I totally dig the Trooper’s intelligent design details. Despite the potential pitfall of not being able to mount a radiator on the case’s roof due to your other components, the Trooper offers options that allow you, the end-user, to still get the most out of this, the pride and joy of the Storm product line.
The capability to customize the orientation of the hard drive modules has a pleasing side benefit: It also allows the end-user to mount higher-performance liquid cooling solutions on the case’s floor. All you really need is a screwdriver.
That native “mod-ability” of the CM Storm Trooper is a boon for water-cooling enthusiasts who may want to use a thick dual 120mm radiator along with a push+pull fan arrangement.
Preview for next time
Next time we’ll explore a third option for mounting a radiator in the CM Storm Trooper. And we won’t be using a mere 240mm radiator, either.
No, you’ve got to think BIG now.
The next installment will be for end-users who have radiators bigger than a dual-120mm radiators. The radiator’s thickness is a complete non-factor as well, so if you’ve got a fat rad you’ll probably like what I’ve got coming up.
To find out what’s next, you’ve got to come back and see what’s in store for you here on CMHD.tv Blog.
Until next time, stay cool, y’all!
