I am sorry that your card reader decided to retire, but could be plenty worse though.

Its all good! It gives me an excuse to upgrade! thumb.gif

We have been looking into the issues 2-3 people have seen with their hotswap PCB. We haven't had any returned from these customers yet, but once we do, we will be able to find out the root cause of the problem.

Good news is our CM parts store have recieved the HAF Xb spare motherboard trays. This means you can keep two PCs on motherboard trays ready to use. We use this internally switching from AMD to Intel and I know you guys are going to love it as much as we do here.

Reminded me of the Red Bull commercial...brilliant!!! With the layout of the XB this would be easy peasy.

Are they selling the XB window tops yet? I saw someone link to a version of the case that comes with it.

Give us 2 weeks and check back with the CM store for the window top panel.

Thanks. Won't be using a fan up there anyways. Might as well show off the goods.

I don't think it's 2 - 3 people but just 1 with different aliases that probably plugged in the molex backwards.

 

I can see a great use for those mobo trays as for people who seek to build their own homemade case.  Otherwise it could be used as a great backup "system" in case the primary mobo goes bad or of course other uses.

 

 

Also with the front panel issues some have had of the power/resetting from just wanting to clean the panel I can see a need for front panels - I know that will come in time as well as the rest of the panels.

CM rep, whats the max SATA rated speed for the PCB board used for the Hot swap bays? Also, why not use a SATA power connector to prevent molex plug mishaps in the first place?

Molex plugs still can only go in one way unless forced. CM has used that same design before and I'm sure other companies do as well. Never had an issue with it on my HAF-X or XB. And as far as SATA rate speeds I would think it wouldn't slow it down at all...just an extension of sorts.

Anyone know of any build logs with this case and multiple radiators (at least 600mm worth linear rad space)?
