Couple questions,

1.) What did you use to route your wires through on the backside? It looks like some kind of cable catch with 3M tape on the back.
2.) The majority of braided/sleeved cables there look to be from your PSU. I think those are from an AX1200 but did you also sleeve your other cables to match it? What kind of sleeving did you use if you did?
3.) Do you get any bulge on the non-windowed door because of the mass of clumped cables?

The third question could be asked of any 900D owner really. I seem to be having some door issues with my 900D. I have a slight bulge on the non-windowed door that I believe is due to some poor cable management on my part. Both my doors do not pop off when pressing the quick release now as well; I have to pry them off. I don't think they have popped off easily since a day or two after I started my build. Guessing I might have damage something on both sides.

I also noticed my window has a scratch on it and the paint chipped away on the bottom. I am not 100% sure if either of these are my fault but does Corsair cover this part under warranty or would I need to pay for a replacement?

Question on the 900D hot swap bays..... I am going to use just three drives to start, a pair of SSDs in RAID 0 for boot and OS and a 1 Tb Raptor for data. I am considering using the hot swap HDD bay. I do not intend to hot swap these drives but the advantage is that I will have two less power cables to run. The power and signal cables that come attached to the 900D hot swap cage look to be of good quality.
The disadvantage is that the more connections and plugs/sockets you put in line the higher the resistance. I really do not think that will be a factor however.
Have any of you done this? Are any of you using the hot swap bay at all and if so have you had any reliability issues?
Thanks.

Dbaer - that's all my 800D has is hot swap bays. this should cause not problems and to my way of thinking is the preferred way to go!

I agree, I have my three drives in the one hot swap cage and I have kept one additional cage in the lower section ready for additional drives if and when I need them. In the mean time the extra cage gives me a way to get cables to the back unseen.

900D spare parts are listed and for sale.

Unfortunately there's no PSU plate or sidepanel lock. IIRC many people had problems with the fragile lock mechanism. Why the PSU cover you ask? I would like to restore a case which was damaged in shipping.

Sorry for the late reply

1) Yep, there are clamps with double sided sticky tape, i've ordered them from moddiy.com
2) Nope, it's a Seasonic P1000 smile.gif, i also sleeved the fans but was too lazy to continue with the case cables. I've bought them from sleeve-modding.com (they have really good sleeves, but their heatshrinks is crap)
3) No problem with the back-window, it is straight !

Fabricated my midplate for the 900D using 2mm metal sheet. I still can use my hotswap bays. smile.gif

Quick question, has anyone had any issues with the door on the on the motherboard side of the case? I keep trying to lift the door, but the slightest nudge and it falls open every time. Now it's barely holding open in the first place. The two magnets don't seem to be doing very much on it. The clear window side however holds extremely well.

Video demonstrating issue:

Hopefully it's user error or something I can fix.
