If I put the PWR_SW back the correct way, and plug in a different Power LED, it lights up like it is supposed to.
So I don't know if there is an odd short somewhere... but It doesnt work right.
Normal Operations gives me no LED
Abnormal Operations gives me LED...

this is so you can connect everything easier than plugging each thing into the board, I've used it before but it just depends on how bad it is to work inside a case

Just finished my 300R , ordered 700D/800D Obsidian grommet kit and they fit perfectly. Adds cost to the case near the 400R but I personally preffered this model but oppinions vary. Running some 120x38mm Kaze 3K's on a controller .. I'll have to get pics up but I'm happy with the end result for the $ spent.

I'm loving my 400R. Simple to assemble, plenty of space and efficient cooling.

Should I RMA my case for a little quality issue?

I owned my white Corsair Carbide 500r about 4-5 months ago to replace my aging Antec 300. One of the reasons I wanted to get a new case was because the front panel on my Antec 300 wasn't completely flush with the case.

Well low and behold, when I first received the 500r the front panel on my 500r is not completely flush, though not as bad as my Antec 300. Basically on the top of the case where the front panel meets the case, theres a 1 milimeter gap. I know i'm probably being anal and this probably wouldn't bother most other people but when I pay $130 for a case and the rest of the case quality is high, that 1 milimeter gap becomes really jarring. Unfortunately I didnt contact Corsair earlier because I was just excited to use my new case and now its 5 months so

Is this something I can fix myself or should I contact Corsair about it? I've never dealt with Corsair's customer service; would they really offer to fix this without charge since its a build quality issue?
