You can hear it from the video. His front panel isn't snugly secure to his case, so with any slight movement to the front panel, it shakes and wobbles.


OH! Oh... What needs to be done here?

Just wondering if anyone else has notice or have this problem with their case. May be a big thing, may be not.

RMA it ASAP. Best to go with the retailer you purchase it from, but if they reject, email our support team.
@Qasual, this was explained to you when you wrote on our forums as well.

Of course, it's already being handled. I ended getting an extra free case on top of the one with the wobble in the side panel.

I just wanted to see if any other users have experienced this, almost like a conversational piece. Thanks for posting again Bourne. thumb.gif

The paint work on the top panel is the worse on mine, fading to a slight grey on one corner due to an insufficient amount of paint, but i guess im not so bothered as i will have to repaint it anyway one i have likely finished modding it all.

If you remove the "handles" top or bottom wont it look strange, given the side panels don't go all the way to the top or the bottom of the case? or have you a cunning solution for this? I too wouldn't mind some after market feet, just because the current ones cause the case to side on desk, even when pressing the power button!

If you just removed the top/bottom handlebar, then it would look ... unfinished. But as you say, I have a cunning solution for it (Well its pretty straightforward actully - Just need a few tools and the time to make it look good).

The replacement of bottom feets are the last thing I am doing though, even though the feet arrived today (Sexy!), currently super busy with the windows and a few other things.

I have the same problem as you, dont know if I already mentioned it, with the case moving/tilting to the side when I put pressure on the sides (It sways to the opposite side).

Would just like to point out that even though the problem LOOKS and SOUNDS dramatic (Who would want your case to tilt to the side when you for example push the power button or put in a USB stick?) its not a dealbreaker per say. I took a deep breath and applied more pressure than I normally would, thinking that if it ever would fall apart - I might aswell see if it would do so now. Happy to report that nothing happened - And when I released the pressure on the case it just stood back up straight. There is NO tilting/swaying (Call it what you want) when applying pressure from the front or back - Only from the sides.

My guess is its a weight thing perhaps - I dont even want to try and guess how heavy my system is (Waterblocks - Radiators - Pumps - PSU - Water .. it all adds up pretty quickly) but it is prob. the cause of the SLIGHT wobbly feeling the feets / case gives. Which in my case (Pun intended) is getting solved by custom made feet and the removal of the bottom handlebar.

Well i posted pic few pages back, but if you really like i can send it to support too. But as i live in finland it wont change anything for me, if i really would be so picky and rma it, would need to send it back to retailer. Dont really bother to rip tsystem to parts again and wait new case probably quite awhile as those are out of stock.

But whoever manufactures these cases for you guys really havent done very well on painting part of consruction.
