The three cases I've received so far, my brothers HAF XB is in a different league those were "that bad".

My HAF 912 case @ $37.xx when purchased came delivered beautiful compared to those HAF XB's received so far.
Well if you want a known good one, PM me. Im thinking of moving on to a quieter case.

way to picky for a $99 case,lol. just put that thing together. no one is ever going to see that,and i have my doubts the paint will just fall off.

LOL! Maybe I am maybe I'm not.

 

1st case: cross threaded screws out of the box and other issues.

 

2nd case: Front right USB to the right so much that one can't insert a USB device and the front panel top bowed upwards plenty that one can fit two pens through it.

 

3rd case: Top panel has a bad fit (saw that one of the top frame rails that meet the top panel was not in concert with the other side) to when I tried my brothers top panel on it it wouldn't work and in fact the top panel that it came with scratched off paint on the edge to the bare metal - was going to live with that till I saw the paint job inside which I went through the trouble taking a photo and posting it here and hope the Cooler Master reps see it too.

 

I'm not "that picky" but I have other Cooler Master cases in which from the get-go had no issues except with my 690 II Advanced case in which I eRMA-ed for a top panel due to a bad audio port.

 

Am I buying a used or a new case here?  It should be pretty right being it's new.  Buy a new car and accept less = that seems be the suggestions here lol!  Okay, it's a $99 case but with my lesser priced Cooler Master cases there was really no issues at all so why should I accept less with this one.

Thanks but a replacement case is on-route and it better be good or else lol!

I woudlnt' except a case with those kinda manufacturing defects, $99 is still a chunk of change and the older I get, the more inflexible I become about stuff I purchase being "faulty" I woulda sent it back also no questions asked, iv'e sent cases back for less then that in the past.

i guess i've been pretty lucky over the years. i order from about 5 different vendors, and only ever had to send one thing back. that was my p180 case. it came with a hugh dent in it. it looked like they threw it from the truck ,to my yard. i cant really say anything bad about amazon though. alot of my hardware,and this case came from there.i like the egg,but if amazon beats them out on a price...i order from there.

Hey all,

I've been lurking on OCN since about last december when this thread started and I've been slowly piecing my rig togerher over the past couple months. I've been super impressed by all the great mods and builds shown on here over the past months and I finally feel that my rig is at a point where I am somewhat comfortable sharing it with Ya'll. Although this is not my first computer build, it's my first one that I have really been able to trick out and really customize to my liking.

First, The specs

CPU: AMD A8 5600k APU
MOBO: Biostar Hi-Fi A85W FM2
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600Mhz (2x4gb)
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD6670 1GB DDR5 Ultimate Edition
SSD: Kingston V+200 120GB drive w/ accessory kit
HDD: WD 320GB
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 600w w/ Custom sleeving
Optical Drive: Pioneer BD player

Cooling:
Fan Controller: NZXT Sentry Mix 6ch/50w controller
CPU Cooler: Corsair H50 Closed-Loop cooler
CPU fans: x2 Aerocool Shark Fan evil black edition (orange LED's)
CPU Airbox: TFC 32mm Plexi duct w/ orange LED's
GPU Cooling: None, Passive heatsink
Front Intake: 2x Bitfenix "orange" 140mm fans (going to swap out for 140 aerocool evil sharks eventually)

Other:
NZXT 2m Orange LED kit.
Sleeving: Dazmode Darkside "Predator" high density sleeving (This stuff is bad a**)

I Still have some work to do finishing up sleeving the rest of the PSU cables, and upgrading the RAM along with some of the fans, but for the time being I'm happy with my rig.

In terms of future modding, I am looking at cutting my own Plexiglass top window to prevent against dust, and some custom painting when summer rolls around and I can break out the aerosol paint in the warmer weather.

And now, For some Pics:

Very nice! I'm digging the Halloween color theme so to speak! Orange is a rare color in case builds
