Wow that's a big change! lol What are you gonna use your 800D for now?
post #433 of 4609
I'm going to store it at work and use it as a project station I think. its just too big for my tiny room it doesn't fit next to or under the desk it only sits on top and its like 2inches deeper than my desk is so its always on the edge of destruction. I really like the way the 500R looks and I've got high hopes

I hope to one day own the 500R white .....SOMEDAY! I PROMISE! lol *end crazy*

But yeah they look awesome and aren't too expensive or even as heavy as a 800D.
post #435 of 4609
the 800D is an awesome case and it suits some people just fine. its just more than I need. i think Corsairs quality is hard to beat and i have nothing bad to say about them. which is why i opted to stay with the brand

Actually, its 170mm. If the 159mm Hyper 212+ does fit with the side door fan in place, I'm also very interested to know whether the 170mm Archon *might* just fit when the fan is removed. Anyone know for certain? I'm assuming the answer is probably "no".

Yeah I corrected that statement later on lol Seeing the fan is around 20-25mm Im gonna say yes? Seeing the hyper212 is 159 + 20mm = 180mm lol

Yeah, they do sing pretty high praises for it though. I cant comment on the loudness, since I replaced all the fans, I can just hear air being moved.

Side note, another part of the case I found is messed up, the audio jack on the front is loose, requiring me to find a "sweet spot" to get my both channels of the audio to work. Aargghh....

Now this on top of the screw issue, I've been waiting for over 3 weeks to finish my build because Corsair did not ship the appropriate screws with the case.

I do love this case, but the issues are starting to mount up with it. Hopefully Corsair corrects these problems in the future, I think better quality control....because this really is a great case.
