I decided to try out a Corsair case for myself. I purchased a refurbished 500R from the Corsair outlet and this is what I get mad.gif



At first I thought this is why it was sold as REFURBISHED, until I saw this....



Ugh.... Sad thing is the case was in transit for only 1 day (Norcal to Socal)

Possible damage done by UPS? I was thinking maybe I could request another side panel but the corner of the top frame got bent as well.

Guess my only option is to return?

That's quite a bit of damage there, I'd return it if it's practical and hope they send you a brand new one out thumb.gif If it's not really practical to return it I guess you just get the side panel replaced and try to repair the case, but you probably won't get it looking perfect again.

what a bummer. i can say without a doubt in MY mind, ups sucks compared to fedex. i never had a problem with them but ups is about crazy with their policies and handling.
good luck with an rma.

I'd like to join the Carbide Owner' Club. I have a Carbide 500R White case now since mid last month. Haven't been able to use it yet.Bad front I/O Panel.Should have the replacement panel next week.I'm debating on whether I'm going to leave my MSI 890FXA-GD70 in it for now and put the i/o panel in or put the i/o panel in and wait for the Asus Crosshair V Formula-z to arrive first.I'm ordering it a week from tomorrow. My current pc specs are off in the current mobobo/cpu/ssd and hard drive areas.The ones I listed in those are scheduled upgrades.Current mobo- listed above.CPU- AMD Phenom 2 1100T.SSD- OCZ Vertex 3 120gb Max IOPs.HDD-2 WD Caviar Black 1.0tbs 32mb cache.

Yeah, me too.

I meant mention before. Demciflex sells a 5 piece magneic dust filter set for the 500R.Isearched for one just for the sid panel.It was around $23-25.I did a 2nd search and got the 5 pice kit from Frozen CPU for $55-57 here in the U.S.They look cool and go outside the case.Demciflex is somewhere in Africa.

i would never spend that much on filters. you could buy a better case after having bought the 500r and a filter set. instead buy 120 and 140 filters. put the filters on every intake fan. have positive pressure. you will save heaps of money and still have a dustfree case.
$200 bucks for a 500r plus demciflex filters? $200 can buy a stupidly bad ass case with filters included
