Not sure if you are in the UK or US, but if you are in US, Newegg is the best. I myself, for example, live in Las Vegas, NV. With free $0.00 shipping, UPS ground, I get my ordered within 2-3 days because they have a warehouse in California. They also have one in New Jersey and Tennessee.

Not that I am assuming anything has gone wrong, but have you tried calling customer service regarding your order? Just in case there was a stocking issue and they ran out or something, maybe you can just cancel and order from the egg.
all my pc parts have been purchased from newegg(except i ordered my CM scout from cooler master refurbished). Amazon was my wifes new college classes(masters Public Relations degree), we saved over $100 buying new books on amazon, although 1 book was not a hardcover book, but an online book so they gave us our $55 back and can keep the online portion.

That would explain it CM is a bit slow when it comes to the shipping department. I still love there products though!

Ah, OK they were ordered from different places. Yes, Amazon is good on the shipping time (and price of course). Also, like Crash said, CM is a bit laggy on the shipping side of things. I would assume a 14 (business) day wait for them is standard for UPS or FedEx ground. Not sure where their warehouse is based, but I understand your anticipation. Hang in there!

Has anyone tried flipping their HDs around such that the SATA plugs are shown through the window?

I’ve tried various configurations and I just can’t quite get it so that there’s room for the plugs (can’t put the side window panel back on).

Why would you want to? Do you remove em often or something?

You would have to use a 90° Sata cable like this if you want to mount them in that direction.

No I don’t ... I just want to show off some sleeving.

Indeed ...



So you can imagine how bummed out I was when I tried turning the HDs around to find that even with the 90° Sata cables, there was still not enough clearance for the windowed side panel.

I tried flipping the drive upside down ... oh wait, I have yet to try flipping the plastic holders such that the tabs are on the other side of the case. I will try that tonight. I am also willing to just use conventional HD screws but not sure if that’s even possible?
Enigma8750 and BriSleep like this.

You could also try drilling holes in the Scouts HDD mounting brackets to mount the HDD further back on the brackets to give you some room. Just trying to think of a way to do it.

If its the window that is blocking the cables then you could mod your case like I did and off set your window on the outside with some spacers.
