Hmmm ... I asked because I know from reading the NEWEGG product reviews by customers, that it seems the East Coast customers are getting some poor service and packaging of products shipped, whereas those of us out here on the West Coast (Home Base for NewEgg) aren't. Stuff like small boxes shipped inside a big box with NO packaging protection, no bubble wrap, no foam peanuts, no wadded up newspaper, and thus stuff getting damaged along the way. Like I mentioned last time, if you only emailed/online chatted with Customer Service, maybe pick-up a phone and call the West Coast #'s and voice your displeasure. NOT that you'd get your Max4Gz faster, but maybe they'd bump up that $10 gift card to try and keep you a satisfied customer ? Worth a shot !

======

OK, now I got a couple more questions.

- are the "Start / Re-set" button lights ALWAYS suppose to remain on ? even when you shut down the computer ? I can see it in one way, but seems like a waste of power in another way ?

- anyone ever deal w/ Corsair ? I posted on their web-forums trying to see if someone in customer service looks in, and might help out exchanging that tall Vengeance heat spreader I had to remove, for a new LP 'low profile' one, or at least could I purchase one from them somehow.

- I need help w/ my Front Panel conectors, I wired them wrong being from a stock HP case they didn't have the nice little individual plastic connectors labeled that I could simply plug into the Q connector. That being said, would the BLACK wire be + or - ? (I assumed negative) and the Ground ?

Thanks again

Got mine up and running tonight:



Working so far like a champ. A few clicks and 4.8Ghz was done at 1.36v with little effort. I have had some bad luck lately with MB's, so it was nice to see this get up and running with very little effort.

Can you do me a favor?

Can you take a picture of that case with a ruler/tape measure next to it so I can get a better gauge on if it will fit on my desk?

Or can you measure the case feet for me, the distance between both. Also can you easily remove them? The Elite 341 and NZXT Vulcan are the only two mATX cases confirmed to fit on my desk, but I can fit others if I remove the feet (my desk has a raised section).

I need a mATX case with more HDD space and neither the Vulcan or Elite 341 offer a viable solution.

Hey thanks, sorry I missed the post. I get lost sometimes in this thread. The weather we experienced was due to a supercell over Lake Michigan, and then the next storm was a "derecho". Happens only a few times a year, and this is the first time we got hit by one so bad.

@LAKF

I'm not sure about the MIVGZ because I haven't hooked mine up yet, but my P8P67 Deluxe's onboard buttons always remain illuminated.

About your front panel wires, if one wire is black are the others colored or white?
If they are colored I say the black ones are negative. If the others are white, I say the black are positive. Usually case wires are colored and white from my experience, the white being negative.

@Kvjavs

What are your max dimensions? I will see if I can find you a cool case as I feel like surfing the egg right now.

I have only seen one good placement of that thing. Somebody trimmed the thing down and put it on their psu. It actually looked pretty good. Don't know if I have seen it used in any appealing way aside from that.

I got 3 Blacks, a RED (PwrSwtch), a Yellow (HDD LED) and a BLUE (PWR LED).

I'm thinking I mixed up the Blacks or have the +/- wired wrong.

= Power Button Works, so I guess that doesn't matter.

= BUT Power LED is ORANGE, when it should be BLUE (running) and Orange (sleep mode)

= AND HDD LED doesn't light at all.

That makes complete sense. A power switch is just a momentary contact I believe. It shouldn't matter as it just jumps. The fact that the power led is backwards indicates to me that it is hooked up backwards and the hdd one is also backwards.

Width/Height doesn't matter.

Length (or depth) doesn't matter as long as the feet are less than 12 inches apart (from furthest edge to furthest edge) or more than 14 so they hang off each side of the desk. A 341 with more HDD cages would be PERFECT.

Here's a pic with a ruler to show how wide the raised portion is. I do have space on the floor, but prefer not to use it. If I buy a case for the floor then I'm going ATX and ditching the GENE.

Yay for crappy cellphone pics.



May have found the case I need:

Of course i can!!

The official sizes of the Fractal Design Define Mini are:
Case size (WxHxD): 210x395x490mm (8.27 x 15.55 x 19.21")

But I've taken a measure and there are e.g. the screws at the back side or the fan cages on the left and top case side and this gives me these, much more exact sizes:
Case size (WxHxD): 214x413x500mm (8.43 x 16.26 x 19.29")

But now i'll have to switch my pc off for turning it around for measuring the feets and have a loot to the feet mount.

Here some pictures compared to my old case, the Sharkoon Rebel 12 Value Bigtower and a bottle of Kellerbier.



EDIT: As you can see in the last pict, the feets consist half of rubber and half of a silver plastic/metal ring, they're about 15mm/0.59" in height. They're mounted with screws from the downside.



The Define Mini has enough space for 7 (!) 3.5" or 2.5" drives: 6 inside those bays on the right, the middle bay where my 3.5" reside is detachable for a longer VGA-card, plus 1 in the lower 5 1/4" bay underneath my DVD burner. It comes with 2 x 120mm fans in the front and the backside and with a fan controller for 3 case fans (above the power source). The cable management possibilities are nowadays fantastic with those holes around the mobo plus one modular power source (HINT FOR LA_KINGS_FAN!!) one get's a lot of free space even in small micro-atx cases. All fan intakes are dust protected with easily removable grills.



Are those infos ok for you, Kvjavs? If not, please don't hesitate to call me again!
