I'd personally like to hear back from the CM rep in regards to what is going on with people frying their HDD's in the hot swap bay as that is a VERY serious problem if turns out to be a manufacturing defect. I'm also now seeing my power and reset buttons causing me shut downs and restarts if the front benzel is touched any and what we as owners are supposed to do about and what CM intends to do to fix it for us.

My brothers (still incomplete build - waiting for a different fan controller as I changed my mind from the original plan) has the problem with a bit more than light pressure between the reset switch in a pretty much straight line to the left edge of the front panel will make the computer reset.

 

I'm going to eventually do a PCB pressure test without the front panel on to see if that's the culprit.  Otherwise this particular case can be used without any other issues...........so far.

 

There are no issues in the backside of the front panel, unless there's the slightest factory imperfection that is causing these problems for us here.

I read those reviews from that one person with different names - I think he didn't plug the molex in correctly. Unless it's a bad PCB there that did it.

I spoke to a friend on another forum and he mentioned that the plastic CM used for the molex power socket is kinda flexible and if not careful can easily be plugged in up side down. I really hope this issue is just human error and not PCB defects.

I think this is accurate. I had no problems with the hot swap. My hard drives are in it right now.

Just a little trick I learned about the toolless adapter. Because the right side of the cage had the tension tabs kinda loose, my optical drive would keep shifting when I pressed the button. Simple solution: Press the tabs inward about 1/4 an inch and that will greatly help in keeping whatever device you have in the bay from moving around.

Bought a set of these and will be putting them on the lowest setting just for a little added air movement in the lower section.

There on sale right now:
