I was browsing Ebay, and I found a posting for a Carbide 200R with a huge crack in the front bezel. Apparently someone received it that way, and couldn't return it for some reason. They wanted $50 for it, shipping included.

That struck me as unreasonable. So I messaged the guy and suggested that $35 was a more reasonable price, considering someone could buy one new from Newegg for about $55 with rebate including shipping.

He accepted my offer.

Now I have a 200R with a cracked bezel. It's otherwise brand-new looking.

I didn't need a computer case... I have a 400R with my main rig in it, and a beigebox that I'm transforming into awesomesauce, and two other cases waiting in the wings.

But I do love modding, and I can fix this, I know I can. I can do ittt...

I may have a sickness....

You could buy a replacement front from Corsair for $10

I love how it says "Assy" Short for Assembly?

Yes, "assy" is a common abbreviation in the manufacturing world for assembly.

Looking forward to seeing what Jhereg10 comes up with.

LOL.

Yeah.. but with shipping, now that's $15 total. Plus the $35 I paid for it, that's $50, which is basically the price of a new one....

Honestly, there's no way to financially justify the purchase if I don't have the fun of fixing it myself. wink.gif

It would allow in dust I suppose, but the 500R from what I understand was designed for positive pressure, meaning more air is flowing into the case than out. and if you have more air flowing into the case than the exhaust will let out then the air from the positive pressure is going to find other ways out of the case, generally this keeps your case a bit cleaner. Negative pressure however is a little different, if all of your fans are exhausting air then small openings of your case would start to "suck" air if you will, And dust will flow into the case making it a bit dirtier. hope this helps. thumb.gif


P.S. get in the habit of cleaning you case on the regular. Its gonna get dirty no matter what. biggrin.gif

Not at all, the 200mm fan is an intake and would help if anything. I doubt you would see much of a temp change with or without the fan. But I highly doubt it would make the temps worse. hope this helps. thumb.gif

Hi, but this type of VGA push the hot air on the side, and if I leave the 200mm side fan on the case that it will push that hot ar back to the vga, isn't it?
