I had a tough choice between The CM Storm Stryker and the Azza Genesis 9000, decided to go with this one, thanks Rodney for the review.

Awesome indeed! Buttons for fans and illumination are in front which is very handy!

I hate ventilated expansion slots. Why put dust filters everywhere and then have that wide open for dust to come and settle in and create a family inside your case ? I'm currently looking for a well ventilated case as i have pets that walk in the same room... sadly, no luck finding one thus far.

Have you tried uninstalling it and re-installing? Also, be sure you have the latest version.

Hi Rodney. I would like to see your pc setup in a video (If youre comfortable with that). I think everyone would like to see how you have things running

Hello Rodney,

I'm watching your videos since a longer time now and I just wanted to thank you. Not exactly for your videos, but for the way you speak English. I'm not native English, in fact I am from Germany, but the way you speak is very nice, very clear to understand and it really helped me to improve my English.

No problem. The problems I had were just, that many English people are talking very fast and when they do so, I always didn't understand a single word. Okay this was a bit exeggerated, but it was similar. But you speak fast and are always good to understand and I learn new words from you, without wasting time from any slow speakers' learning video or whatever. I think you could be a good movie narrator or something.

Well, I actually speak a lot faster in person, but in my video reviews I try to be as clear as I can so people understand what I'm saying.

i would just like to make some corrections in regards to your video first of the STRYKER does NOT come in any other color than white (direct from cm), second the stormtrooper (which is the case you may have been referencing does NOT have a side panel window and the vents are differently shaped (more square). cm does have a side window panel for teh storm trooper case but it has the more rounded vents like on the stryker which throws the overall look way off and makes it just plain ugly.

over all sizewise the case is great and i do admit overall teh look is great but the white of it ruins the whole case for me and the storm troopers lack of side panel window ruined that for me also.

i was lookign for a case with a specific look which didnt pan out and the next thing was size and mobo compatibility, the third was price well at 350 bones the cosmos II was definatley out and i ended up having to settle for the stryker (which will be painted) but after this fiasco i dotn plan on looking at cm products myself in the future, i am one of those that want to see the hardware i spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on when building my system and if i didnt care there are far cheaper options out there TBH and if you cant see in the case there is no need to spend hours with cable management just ziptie all the cables off to one side to not restrict airflow.

your review was great rodney just wanted to correct you on your comment of the stryker also being available in black cause it is not and that is direct from cm ( i called them cause i wanted one in black ), to get a black one you need the storm trooper which has NO side panel window but you can spend 20.00 + shipping direct and get a side panel window but it is essentually a black stryker side panel and is mismatched on the storm troopers opposite side panel.

Sorry, no idea what you're asking. Please ask again.

Does anyone know if you can fit a 240mm rad in the front? I mean on the 3,5" drive bays with the fans that are delivered with the case.

With at least one 3.5 drive bay cage removed and a few mods, it should be doable.

I'm going to get it for my upcoming build.

Net Weight is 13.7 kg / 30.2 lb, so it's not a lightweight case.

That is one really nice case. I would buy it if I was looking for a new case.

Very nice, I like every thing about it, would love to be able to afford this case in black, I prefer large cases, I don't care how heavy they are, the more room they got, the better.

This case is an ideal case for the way I like to build.

It'd be nice to have this computer case without a window in the side. I'd like to put in an acoustic foam in it and replace the current fans with very quiet ones; even replace a 200mm fan with a silent radiator that connects to the CPU. This will be great in conjunction with a new AMD's Kaveri line of APUs which won't be out until mid-2013.

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

2 pairs of Insignia NS-B2111s (front/rear), Pioneer SP-C21 Center Speaker, and 12" Velodyne Sub

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

Is this their top of the line case? Or is the HAF X still on top?

Well, for Full Tower, the Cosmos II would probably considered king, but the Stryker is top notch.

Nope, since it's not a drive bay, rather a compartment for accessory tray.

Optical drives are 5.25". The last drive bay can be used for 3.5" devices such as card readers.
