I just got the carbide 500R white case and the only trouble I seem to have is that the fan controller slide button is stuck at the very bottom and if I try to slide it up to the top position it will not. It's like it is locked down for some reason. I think it is actually broken but I am not 100% sure. Any suggestions? frown.gif

Did you take the front panel off? Because I'd the same thing happen when took off, you want to make sure the switch is on low then put panel on and try to change speed.

Looks good... just need to snag a new black power supply, preferably modular. That is the early gen earthwatts model. Probably kind of old isn't it?

BTW that card reader mounted internally made me lol thumb.gif

Yeah that psu is ancient I am using it from an old build a while ago. It was made it 2007. And yeah, I pulled that card reader off of an old compaq pc, I need it for my camera's sd card.

I am planning on getting an hx 650 or hx 750 as my next psu. They look so nice.

I guess I'm off to micro-center to check it out.
It just doesn't feel right sticking my new ivy system in my case that's had 2 other systems in it and it has an annoying door on it.
Good enough reason I think.

I would definitely recommend going to Microcenter first. In all honesty when I saw it in person that case was of worse quality than the crappy diablotek evo I bought for 35 on sale. It just doesn't seem like something Corsair would release.

Also, I picked up a 500r and the case feet are uneven but besides that I love everything about the case. Returning it tomorrow.

EDIT: The power supply mounting issue STILL hasn't been fixed? I tried fitting it in there and it won't budge. I tried just to see if just maybe the case balance issue was a weight thing.

The power supply mounting issue in my case was due to a rivet below where the PSU is mounted. I just filed it down a bit and it fit snug as a bug.

I think the molds themselves are bad. Look at my case it seems warped as if exposed to too much heat and not given enough time to cool.

just got the rest of my components and got everything in, im waiting on my pcie cable extensions (come tomorrow) so i can finish the cabling but working with this case was sooooo much nicer than my antec 900. i love it so much. i ended up adding 1 more and have 3 intake fans up front, 1 exhaust in back, 1 intake on side, and 1 intake on the top tfront slot, pushing a little bit more air in right to where the cpu fan is, so it brings fresh air in right infront of the fan to be pushed through the cpu heatsink. it works for me, even though it sounds kinda of odd for overall airflow. i just need to get some sound dampening stuff cause the case is pretty loud. actually louder than my antec 900 and i have 2 less fans in this...

will post pics after i get the cabling thing settled tommorrow.
