I don't know what to tell you man. You just have to jimmy it in, and try different methods. I know it took me like 5 mins. But also remember that pci-e slots are like ram slots. They require quite a bit of pressure. Oh also, check you motherboard, make sure the latch is back so that it will actually allow the card in.

The cards are hitting the bottom of the PCI-e slot, because I have installed it without the case. If I force the card to get the screw all the way down, the motherboard bends and the card becomes slanted or crooked toward the back the case (seen through the power supply fan slot/filter).

I just made a measurement from the motherboard to the height of the PCI slot, and on my Cooler Master 690 II its 11 centimeters while the Carbide 200R is only 10.5 centimeters. The backplate/IO plate matches the motherboard perfectly so I guess this is a flaw in the 200R (I don't know about other cases in the same family). Disappointed because it was such a perfect case, had everything I needed and none of what I didn't.

EDIT: Does Corsair know about this flaw, and are they working on a revision? Are there revisions of the 200R (maybe I just got an older revision)?

Nobody else seems to have the specific problem you are stating. It has worked fine for me, and everyone else in this thread I believe. I would call Corsair, or fill out an RMA form. They might be able to help you.
post #3854 of 4610
not a flaw in the 200R, I'm still using mine until my Fractal gets here.
I have swapped several GPU's while using this case (200R) and do not remember having such issues.

edit:
take it out and start over if you can't get it..
post #3855 of 4610
I am having the above mentioned problem with my 200r as well although I don't feel it is actually a problem and mine is only about 2mm away, not 1cm.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


So my 200R had an annoying vibration issue so I mounted the front intake fan with foam tape. I'm not using my 200R right now because I have a C70 but I'll probably use it for a budget Minecraft server.

Added an Antec H20 620. Bought some closed tubing at Fry's for like $4 to add some aesthetics. Looks pretty nice IMO


EDIT: Hm, looks better in person, camera kinda ruined it.

What connector is this for? I just got a 500r and I have no idear what I'm doing, but I will window mod it one of these days! Also, my mb has lots of 4 pin fan connectors, can I put the three pin case connectors in there?

does that connector look like the other 2 fan connectors? it looks like its the side panel fan.
no you can not hook them up to the mobo unless you pull the led wire from the fans connectors. its usually an rpm read wire but corsair decided to use it as the led power wire essentially killing the idea of using the case fan controller on anything but their case fans.

The fan controller built into the front panel of the 500R works with controlling the RPM of Non-Corsair fans just the same. Just take the pins out of those Corsair connectors and wire the replacement fans into them.

The only downside if you can call it one, is that if the fans you replace the stock Corsair fans with are LED, the LED will dim along with the 3 speed settings. High - Full brightness. Medium - Low brightness. Low - LED Off.
