or cut a small chunk out of the case. those would be the most convenient options, besides a change of case or motherboad. or just don't use usb 3.0.

that was what I thought. I highly doubt that a 90 degree adapter, or even a shorter adapter exists.

since I just started building this rig from scratch, replacing the board and the case is a bit of a no-no in my situation. I'm too afraid of removing a chunk of my case since I just got the case. I guess the pci card is the best solution for the front panel. frown.gif sucks to be me.

I don't think you have to worry about mounting the Sabertooth with higher standoffs or washers on that side of the board. The screws only need to be finger tight to keep the board secure and grounded.

will the back I/O still fit if I added higher standoffs?

If you're talking about raising the board 2 or 3mm only on the opposite side (front) then yes.

Please help me in getting the window side panels for my brand new 300r and also fitable rubber gromets
post #1670 of 4610
I think you can get grommets from the 500R that fit the 300R.

I don't know of any window panels for the 300R. But if there are any, I need your regular panels. thumb.gif

try corsair website?

I tried the site, there is nothing.

I emailed Corsair twice about ordering a panel and they haven't responded. They never responded to my second email about these fans either. Pretty terrible.. maybe no English? I don't know.
