Thank you... green is my favorite color... and I thought the green trim looked really nice with the black case and green LED lighting on the inside

Hey guys I thought I might update the situation on this. I was cleaning my PC the other day when I noticed that the IO circuit board was showing bare pins. I had a quick look around and sure enough, there was the IO motherboard connector sitting right at the top of the case. It must have come unstuck from its glue during transit and stayed like that and when I was trying to troubleshoot why the front IO wasn't working I must have overlooked it. Anyway I connected that back up and now the case (front IO and all) works absolutely perfectly. First time I've had an issue with a Corsair product, but luckily it was easily rectified.

I'm glad to hear it. It's a shame there was a fault in the first place, but it's bound to happen at some point considering how many units they manufacture and ship. Though at least they back it up with great customer service. I received a replacement front I/O panel through an RMA yesterday. They didn't want the old one in return, and it was shipped/delivered in two days.

Yep, compared to other customer services I've used (cough*ASUS*cough) Corsair are top notch. I explained the situation to them, they apologised and closed the ticket so all was well.

Cut them out. I think it gives it a much cleaner look.

That's what I'm going to be doing this week to my 500R.

I borrowed one of someone else, saved me having to buy one myself. lol

Although I think I'm going to want one of my own down the track.
post #4079 of 4610
I currently have the 400r model, but in a month I'm moving and since the computer will be moving from a dedicated office to the bedroom my wife wants;) something that doesn't take up as much room. I don't want to downgrade so far as a gaming laptop since my custom build is my pride and joy, but I'm willing to move to a more compact case.

So my question to you is what is the size comparison of the 400r and the 200r? I have a BD-R, and three drives: OS on an SSD, 1TB data drive, and 2TB media drive. It looks like the 200r loses one 5.25" bay (not a big deal) so I can assume the case is not as tall, but what about width and length? I'm having a harder time visualizing that.

Thanks for any input!

These are the dimensions listed on Corsair's website:

200R = 16.9" x 8.3" x 19.6" / 400R = 20.5” x 8.1” x 19.8”

So the 200R is actually wider than the 400R, but is slightly shorter in length and depth. Overall it is not much of a downsize, if you could even call it that.
