post #3281 of 4610
I was hoping someone here might be able to help me... I just got a computer built at my local computer shop and I had chosen the 300R case. I just received it and was surprised that there was a gap (about fingernail width) where the left panel attaches to the front panel, extending from the top but only to about halfway down the case. I unscrewed the left panel and removed it and put it back on, but the gap was still there. I've included a photo below. This is the first time I've ever bought a non-retail pre-made computer, so I wanted to make sure if it's something wrong with the case, or if I'm not doing something right (though I assumed the computer shop would assemble it properly). Thank you! It would really set my mind at ease.

Try banging the front panel in. The front panel is detachable.

should look like http://images.anandtech.com/galleries/2129/Large%20%284%20of%2010%29.jpg

edit: also make sure you attach the bottom and top at the same time into the slots on the side of the frame

The fans are placed pull-pull instead of push-pull, aren't them? biggrin.gif
it's because if using push-pull setup there's clearance issue with high profile ram

Ah, all right then. For the window mod, I ordered pre-cut acrylic (300mm x 222mm x 3mm), rounded the corners with a file, covered the window in masking tape leaving only a 1cm border on one side (the masking tape was doubled up to prevent paint leaking through), then I sprayed it with two coats of spray-paint (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001W03PH2/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). The spray-paint has a smooth, matt finish and blends well with the other parts of the case that are black. To secure the window to the side panel I used clear, industrial-strength, double-sided tape. Overall, it was relatively simple (just needed care and a little patience) and is a great new addition to my case!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Mine has this issue, although it's on the left side of the side panel rather than the right. It's never bothered me enough to actually look why it's doing that though.

Yeah, you're right.

I believe that it's the only test about a twin tower heatsink with fans in pull pull that I've seen. biggrin.gif

Thanks for both your help.

Is the best strategy to remove only the front panel (don't remove side panels) and then push the front in?

Is it best to lay the computer resting on the back side to push it in effectively? Is it okay to put the computer upside down like that?

What's the best way to remove the front panel? Before, it came off (only bottom half) because I pulled at the bottom by mistake. This made a cracking sound, so I didn' try pulling the top of the front off.

I've never actually opened a computer case before until yesterday so I'm really new at this. Thanks!
