Anyways, I was thinking about switching (silly pun always pops up) to some white anti kink, maybe dropping my dual bay res for a fan controller, and trying to find a way to mount the front bottom fan on the rear rad inside (might have to get a snake fitting).
But with Christmas coming I kinda want to leave it alone... too many nieces and nephews (and 2 boys of my own)... Santa will not be kind on my wallet.

Not too worried about the HDD, I'll utilize the one lower bay. So only 2 bay will be used. Not sure where I put the SSD. I see only one 2.5 conversion. Unless I use Velcro. Haha.

Shouldn't have to do that with a major corporation. It's like they're a mom & pop store.
I'm not going to worry about it anymore. I've dealt with four companies during my 6yr stint in custom computers. Corsair, EVGA, Gskill, & NZXT. Corsair & EVGA has second to none CS. Gskill isn't bad, they're just slow, but they handled their business with me. NZXT, well it's sad. I was going to put my WC setup in here. Just going to get a different case, hopefully the 900D if it comes out before new cards & blocks do.......

Total bummer sorry to hear. I have been following your NZXT problem for some time. It's a shame NZXT doesn't have their customer service act together. Reviewers seem to have no problem contacting them about free review units so you would think their CSR is doing their job but apparently not....

What case you going to?

One thing I noticed with the female connector on the SD Card's PCB is slanted, I'm not sure if that's supposed to be how its designed. Well there is no way for me to contact the seller of this case because I bought this item secondhand. Obviously, the price was too good to be true for a "barely used" case that supposedly didn't have a system every installed in it. *sigh* Should've tested this case with the parts my friend has laying around instead of waiting to piece it together with all the parts I got.
Well that's besides the point. I know Xnine here that may be able to help me get a new front panel USB? I have the Gunmetal SE version. I wanted to try here first before I tried NZXT customer support.
Thanks for any input!

Cool to see another virginian thumb.gif welcome to ocn!!
if you pm xnine (the guy who started this thread) he should be able to hook you up with a replacement front io piece. He's sent me out replacement parts for my case more than once as well as to many other people on this thread as he works for nzxt!

Hope that helps!

Thanks man, yeah they have no support system @ all. I've read where people say the same thing, no contact @ all. It's like they don't stand behind their product. I am in the process of putting my components back into my 650D right, took off work to do so. I'm sticking that 810 in a box! It's either going to be the 900D, Caselabs, or nice looking full tower. I want Corsair first cause of their quality, business practices, & piece of mind. I'm also switching to 2011 socket, got CPU, SD, & a few other compnents (In My SIG). Waiting to see what good MOBO's come out if any...

Any chance IB-E will share the 2011 socket? Might be worth while waiting for that or no? 900D GODILLZA! Sweet case. Can't wait till it drops.

I think it will, but will be another chipset. I already got the CPU. I was thinking of selling it & wait, but this build has been put off for two months already. My wife really uses the Z68 build, so we split gaming time damn near. We have other computers (Laptops), but none really can play a game like it needs to be. She plays the sims 3 like crazy, so I need something!...LOL

From what I understand and read, haswell is slated to come out first around Q2 or Q3 of 2013, IB-E is expected come out Q3 2013. (If anyone has more updated info please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong).

One would expect a new chipset for the IB-E

That's what I've pretty much read, I would do Haswell, but I do video encoding & I'm getting more into Photoshop. That was of the reasons I got the 3930K. My wife done went Sims 3 crazy & that game is expensive.... We out about $650 bucks for that game & the sims 3 store...
