Is it safe to cut the AC'97 connector off on the front panel header? I have heard horror stories about some being wired in a way that means cutting the AC'97 also kills the HD Audio connector.

It's getting in the way of my sleeving and I'd rather not start messing around with cable extensions and making more spaghetti under the back panel just to get a clean sleeve biggrin.gif

I can't remember exactly how it's wired, but it should be easy to see if it'll cause problems by looking at the wiring. I'd check it myself if I could, but mine is connected, I won't be able to reach it, and rebooting my rig can take anywhere between 10-30 minutes (there are several things that tend to not work, so it's basically a matter of reboot, test, reboot, test, and so on). But if you do it, make sure you don't cause a short-circuit as that can damage your motherboard/sound card.

EDIT: What I did, was I used a single large sleeve over the cable and the extra connector. It's not perfect, but it looks better than a loose connector.

Hey guys. Sorry I am not a builder myself so I am a little noobish. I had microcenter assemble my rig a year and a half ago. Today I tried to plug in a new SSD in the front slot but it doesn't seem to be working. I wonder if they plugged it into my mother board (Asus Rage Extreme), because the front usb 3.0 ports don't seem to be working. The thing is I have no idea where to start to check if it is plugged in properly. However, it is plugged in properly what exactly do I need to do in my bios to enable it, if anything. I am running Windows 10. I know it's a long time to neglect this but i haven't needed new storage till now, and my motherboard has SO many usb 3.0 ports that I haven't had to use the front ones. However, if I have to go in and connect the SSD port, I probably should just plug in the 3.0's...Thanks in advance.

Welcome to OCN and the Trooper/Stryker club. thumb.gif

I'm afraid I've taken quite a severe stance against Windows Keylogger (what you call 10) so I can't help with problems regarding that, but I doubt it's related.

The hotswap bay and USB ports are copmpletely seperate, and while I'd consider it shocking of them to not connect the front USB ports (an easy fix though), I wouldn't be suprised if they left the hotswap bay out.

Since you're not a builder and got the shop to do it for you I'll assume that your knowledge regarding the inside of a computer is minimal. To see what's going on you'll have to look inside the case, and also trace some wires to see where they go. I'll take some pictures (where possible, see what I said above about switching my rig off), and then continue answering.

EDIT: Here's a picture on the motherboard:



If you look under the bunch of yellow sleeved wires you'll see two thick black cables coming from a single connector. That's the front USB3. The other broad ribbon-like cables just below that are SATA cables. Those are the data cables for the hard drives, optical drive, etc. One of them should go up to the hotswap bay if you want to use it, and you'll also need a powere cable (I can't remember if it's a Molex or SATA power cable, but you'll seee which one fits). To use the hotswap feature you'll have to enable it in your BIOS settings, but someone else will have to chime in on how to do that on your board. Otherwise you can still use it by plugging the drive in/out while the system is off.

EDIT: Oh, and sorry about the dust. I'll have to clean my rig at some point.

Hey guys,

anyone bought or made a PSU cover for this? Some advice would be helpful, so far I'm thinkig of cutting and bending plexy. But the thing is I'm gonna need some holes in it for cable routing through the cover, mostly to the GPU since my modular cables are too short to reach to the GPU if I route them through the back of the case.

Hey guys, I recently re-did the fan configuration since I wasn't happy with my CPU temps. I'm running all air, and I had the 2 fans on the HDD bays blowing towards the MBA side of the case. That seemed a bit counter productive but since I didn't really read any information in this thread about it being a big deal, I built it that way. Well I changed the bays around so that the fans are now both pulling air in from the front of the case. Temps don't seem that much lower, so I had a few questions for any of you who might know.

  1. How are you guys mounting a 3rd fan on the very top slots of the front of the case? Right over the 2 HDD bays. Did the case come with special mounting hardware I didn't notice or are you guys doing that custom?
  2. Why is it so impossible to find a black windowed side for this case? I don't feel like paying an arm and a leg on some euro site. Anywhere else?
  3. If I had 2 fans blowing air onto the GPU's would this actually help or not make much of a difference? I've been doing that but I can't really notice a difference with them on or off.

If anyone has some advice I'd greatly appreciate it. thumb.gif

Yeah I did, I'd probably need 2 of them since I want to cover the PSU also, but that's 19EUR parts + 30EUR shipping which isn't a great deal.

You're right you'll need two if you want to cover the whole bottom.

There are also several people who made custom covers, but I can't help much in that regard.

DoomDash: You can either make custom mountings or buy a third HDD cage. I don't know how common they are or what they cost, but I've seen them in the CM store before.
