Hope this helps

Awesome thanks, I think I will do the same just to be safe. I have a Silverstone ST1000p which is also a short 1000w psu. So I think our results will be similar.

Ok, so my weekend finally came. I have to say that this case was so much beeter to work with and in than any other case I've ever worked with. I decided not to do anything too fancy for now, figured I'd wait for my bank account to stop hating me for a little bit after the upgrades to some of the hardware. Extremely happy with this and now I can't wait to play around with it and get a custom water loop in.

Oh, I didn't take a picture, but I do have a blue 200mm coolermaster fan in the lid as an exhaust as well. This thing is almost dead quiet, and I have it sitting 2 feet from my head. Absolutely love this case smile.gif

Where did you get the blue wire setup at or did you do that yourself? Any advice. I just got into pc about a month ago "noob" lol. Those would look sweet with my setup

We finally got around to testing some of the returned PCB from people who claimed their hard drives were destroyed. We found the PCB completely operational. But it seems the root cause of this problem was people were plugging in the molex power lead upside down.

In an effort to fix this about 3 months from now we will be making available a new PCB. This will not be shipped normally on new chassis yet, but we will be getting some in advance. Please do not ask customer service for them until they are released 3 months from now.

1. Changes the SATA mount to the top and flush mounted to the PCB so it will be less hard to knock off the port if end user slammed their PSU in (somepeople don't heed the 180mm length limit and break the back of the PCB)

2. Changes the molex power connector to 40mm lead, so you can grab it and make sure the installation is right

3. Improved layout that adds at least 5mm space, and is more stable connection

Until then please do not shove your PSU in the chassis if it is too long, and take some time to carefully plug in the power so it is not upside down.



Comments and suggestions?

i personally hate the whole hot swap setup. in fact,it was the first thing i took out. it would have been nice if they would have had a normal hdd cage in there that held two hdd's instead of a cage that hold 2.5 hdd's. and who uses that many 2.5 hdd's or ssd's? this is an area i found to be a big fail. other than that i'm happy.
