I just built out the new Coolermaster Stryker which is exactly the same only white a has a clear side as standard. The Storm Trooper is a topflight case with great features. As others have mentioned the case will have zero to do with overclocking.

what makes you so sure about that ? in a sense yea but having both a system builder and engineer tell me that the air flow in that old case is no good was good enough for me.


point i was making is when you have a case that is running at 60c + idle and above in operation there is no way in hell i would be attempting to overclock , now that i switched cases , tidy ed up my cables , added a few more fans and improved a few other things everythings running smoothly apart from the fact that i need to add new thermal paste to get rid of the " run on side effect" iv got going on i guess if im looking for a decent walk/talk thro on how to make sure my ram timings and other fidly shit is spot on i wont find it here.

The case design as it relates to installation of a premium cooler yes and stock fan performance in a better airflow case yes. But with any aggressive overclock it very quickly will come down to pure cooler performance and location and this was more my point. A better case air flow will always effect temps but when overclocking you must consider the cooler as an integral factor in that outcome. Good news is you have moved into one hell of a case with cooling options like mad.

I for sure overstated the zero effect as better air flow is always better. Did you ever make a mobo choice? Looks like with the 1366 socket your choices could be limited from what I'm finding, is that the same for you?

nah decided to just stick with the mobo i have due to the fact that i would rather not swap my ram out yet again - thats why i decided that i wanted to give overclocking a go ....
