yes it is, its a Xigmatek HDT S-1283, an old sink

my phenom II x4 960T BE stays around 40-47 degree Celsius when idle and kicks at 55-58 when in full load using prime95 or Intelburn test

Well has it been fixed at all? I returned 2 already and from the looks of it they're the older launch models...

Are you absolutely sure it isn't one of the rivets below the psu? I thought the exact same thing as you, but once I filed down the rivet a bit it snapped into place fairly easily. Is it that the screw holes don't match up? Or does it genuinely not fit?

As far as the rivet is concerned, it can be very hard to determine the exact way in which a rivet will splay when inserted, I suspect it is just something slightly overlooked.

I'm absolutely sure.

500R #1- Motherboard tray area would have caused motherboard to bend when/if installed. Case was also unbalanced and when I saw it dead on the case look warped. If I had to describe it imagine a screen tear if went side to side instead of up to down.

500R #2- Better than the first, didn't have the warp but the motherboard tray and PSU bottoms were still messed up and the rubber case feet were lack of a better word still uneven causing the case to rock.

Now, what's funny is that the black model 500R on display was perfect at Microcenter. I even went as far as to bring my motherboard in there to mount it for practice. And Microcenter didn't want to sell it to me because it was still an active item in inventory.

Huh that's funny. Mine is fine, straight, and working great. It just came with a dud power button, so I am going to call for a replacement front panel connector set.

And I love your sig, btw.

It is strange...I have never heard of those kinds of flaws in a 500r... perhaps try get your money back and grab a new one somewhere else that might have better stock?
