I am really dissatisfied with Corsair right now, My case PSU holes were a bit off. Once the machine was fully assembled it does not sit flat, the back right sits higher causing the tower to be wobbly, along with my X bracket missing out of my H100 I am very unhappy with Corsair quality right now. Quality control needs to step up on these newer products or a company with a previous great name is going to start taking lumps.

I'm sorry you're going through this too, you're not the only one who has experienced this - just read this thread and some other isolated ones about this and other issues.

 

I am saddened too about these issues as my brother wanted this case for the build I'm going to do for him but have discouraged him from getting any of the 400r/500r cases because of the issues experienced by some so far.  Because I'd have to deal with shipping out UPS if I have to send it back and I don't have a car these days otherwise it would be different.

 

CorsairGeorge (a great person) and a Corsair product manager reads and posts here, maybe you can try to reach him through his email address listed somewhere in this thread or he'll read this and try to help.  Corsair IS a GREAT company and just some of these cases in this model line have bad circumstances.

 

 

EDIT: If you'd like to contact CorsairGeorge here is his EMail address: redbeard@corsair.com
