Heya Rodney,
I will be building my first computer in the next few weeks and am just looking at cases. Would love your view on the Corsair 650D. Do you think it is a better case than the 100% kickass CM Storm Trooper?
Would love your advise on this. :)

It is unusual for me to discover something on the internet that is as entertaining and intriguing as what youve got here. Your page is lovely, your graphics are great, and whats more, you use source that are relevant to what you are saying. You are definitely one in a million, man!

Can we control all the fans and leds with fan controller, i mean if i install two side panel fans can it be done. cause there are 4 2pin fan connecters(for 2 front, 1 top and 1 back) and 2 led on/off toggle(for 2 front fans or side whatever). And if we split 2 pin fan connecter to connect more fans its going to impact on volts sent to all fans...

oh man i really liked this case...if any has done do let us know here

When I first clapped eyes on this at the LITSHOW in London some weeks ago I was impressed with all the drive bays. But having seen your video I see it's missing 2 vital parts. Coming from a novice building my own PC from scratch, I would have loved a big side window to show off my handywork. Also, given the fact that it's supposed to be portable, why wasn't it supplied with castors instead of rubber feet? You yourself mentioned how heavy the thing was. So it would have made sense to wheel it around instead of breaking one's bck to lug it about. Apart from that I do love the case but sadly will have to reserve my choise for the CM Haf X which is gonna be the next component on my list to buy.

Meh, I get the impression this is a replacement for the CM Stacker series which seams to no longer be available.

Shame really I liked the CM Stacker

I guess... portable full tower gaming case. I agree with you though - if I could find a Stacker 830 NVIDIA Edition for a good price, I'd totally get one! They were awesome full aluminum cases...

Does the side panel have a dust filter for the two side 120mm intake fans? If not, then oh well. Even though the top exhaust fan is set to exhaust, you can switch it to be an intake fan as Rodney has said, but you can keep it as exhaust and even though the dust filter might hinder the exhaust fans airflow to some degree, it is good when you have the system off, because dust can't fall inside the case when the system isn't operating.

My suggestion is if you're going to keep it as exhaust, then remove the dust filter for a slightly better exhaust performance. Then when you're shutting down the computer, especially for long periods of time (Sleep, work, etc), you can replace the dust filter to prevent dust from falling inside the case while the fan is not in operation.

The cooler master HAF-X is by far way better case. Looks, functions,price point at the same. This case was a wast of CM time of building it.

I like this case. I wonder if the SATA cables from the motherboard would reach the top 5.25" bays, but other than that, I would like it. I would change the LEDs to orange, and replace the fans with ones with orange LEDs, but it looks like it would mod well.

good review. Is this case going to have other versions of the same model like one with a window on the side???

I won't buy any case without a removable tray. I like everything else, but still not for me.

This is not a 100% kick ass product. Rodney, it feels like your kidding your self. I'm sure there a lot of people out there who does not like all their drives facing one directions. The design at the top of the case looks like its very hard to work around installing fans or a big radiator. Don't get me wrong I'm a big cooler master fan. I don't like how this product and the haf x are almost the same price point. However I do think this is a great product.

Yes the Storm Trooper fits up to XL-ATX motherboards like the G1.Assassin.

There are no dust filters at left and right sides... Especially important left side with two coolers. It's will work like "vacuum cleaner" xD

It isn't 100% Kickass product... You set so high mark because these speed fun buttons are beeping? xD

Very Nice product review. Nice build and lot's of fan's and dust filters to keep everything dust free. 100% kick-ass product. It would have been nice if you installed a motherboard with a long videocard like a AMD 6990. Gives a better perspective.

100% dust free? Are you fcking kidding me?

You can't stop dust 100 %. That's something everybody knows. But this case is better equipped to deal with it. The side panel is equipped for placing extra fan's. And yes I do view it. Mind your language plz.
