Not meaning to put this thread off track: I'm thinking of replacing my HAF 912 with something else but haven't quite found its replacement yet.
So far I've spent £180 on faulty cases to replace my Phantom. Really starting to regret it. I'm looking at getting either a HAF case or a Raven case now. It's a shame that there aren't any PC shops that carry decent cases near me

No place that you can order from?

I can order from anywhere really but so far Scan have charged me for the return delivery and refused to refund me the delivery charge both ways (£20) even though it was the courier that damaged the item and Ebuyer have picked it up free of charge but not refunded me the initial delivery charge (£8) so overall I'm down almost £30 in delivery charges (with more charges due) which really annoys me. The only place that I haven't had problems with are Aria. Maybe I'm just unlucky.

Man that stinks.

Then maybe you ought to then deal with Aria but make sure that you get a case that won't have quality issues. Use this forum and look and read through the various case clubs is the only viable thing I can think of.

I know about being "unlucky".

Also don't the couriers have insurance on packages or that you can insure against?

I thought that too but Scan are saying that because I reported it 4 days after delivery (didn't start the build straight away) that they can't refund it. I think they are just being completely unfair.

The most annoying thing about all of this is that I purchased these 2 cases because Corsair and Fractal are known for making good quality cases and the reviews showed this. Unfortunately I didn't receive one of those cases, I received a mutated, wobbly cousin of it.

I'm quite tempted to build my own case from scratch. At least I know it will be solidly built, cheaper and completely custom.

Sorry I've hijacked your thread.

It then is a shipping handling issue a bit more than the build quality though the quality issues do exist.

Well I guess then you have two choices: Purchase another one and inspect and build as soon as you get it to make sure all is well or if you can build your own.

You can always make one out of a milk crate j/k.

Here's photos of such I found online I like to use for laughs:

You guys sure are painting with a broad brush. My 600t is 100% flawless so not ALL Corsair cases suck...

Well I didn't I just said that the 400r/500r was not Corsair's best.

Actually I see more and more complaints about the 600T everyday. Look in the corsair forums. It's a great case but I think they are messing with the recipe, maybe looking at cheaper ways to manufacture. Their paint jobs have taken a hit. I imagine Corsair will look at what they are saving, what their RMAs are costing them, and make a decision. They still have great customer service, so all is not lost.

Let's wait and see if corsair George comments about this.
