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?

How are your ambient temps within the chassis now with the relocation of the radiator...and are you now using a Push/Push/Pull config with it?

Just built my moms new rig with a Corsair 300R. It's a really great case but I have one complaint. The front panel audio cable is just too short! Its impossible to feed it to the bottom left corner of the case where that connection is on the motherboard.

Same with me, I just tucked it away behind the motherboard tray. Thats my only complaint about this case, otherwise pretty solid for it's price range.

Hi, I am new here to be honest i am thinking of getting a bigger case as i just got into watercooling I have the 400r case, I got the XSPC dual res/pump combi, hooked to a single rad to a gtx 680. The radiator is at the bottom as it would not fit on the top with the H80 sticking out, thinking about getting a cpu block and better pump 240rad properly next year. Incase you are wondering the card above the gfx card is a x-fi titanium hd. pump to gfx card - gfx card out to radiator - radiator to reservoir. Idles @ 22c load @ 50c max

Here is a shady picture of it not great quality taken on ipad2 in low light..450
