Remember, I'm the only one that was supposed to get these bad cases.

I'm so very sorry that you too received a rocking front to back case.

That's the idea of purchasing a brand new case in that one shouldn't repair something that should've been done correctly in the first place especially chassis related which I witnessed that being bad in my 4 received.

So much for me "disappearing" from this thread. biggrin.gif

Yea I thought it was quite humorous that the last one u returned had the same issue. Luckily it took me about 10 minutes to re-adjust it and now it's good and level. I just wish i had time to work on it in the next couple of days. hate having to put things on hold.

Sounds like this chassis is "so fragile" as I wonder what you did to re-adjust it.

 

But my issues with the side panels and top panel not fitting/sliding in correctly is more "serious" as it's not so much an easy quick fix.

Fixing it was actually quite simple with the "right" tools, or in this case a completely over kill body press for correcting automotive frames after an accident lol. I probably could have just added weight to the top of the frame and forced it level over time, but who wants to take the long road? And the sides and top fit fine and slide with no problem once the chasis is straight again.

Too bad the "right tools" with instructions didn't come with my 4 cases. lol! tongue.gif

 

But then I would want the case for free for the trouble of repairing it.

I just keep mine out of dusty locations as much as possible. Besides mine is apart and back together so often that dust doesn't have time to settle.

WOW!!! what a great thread!!! Had to sign up to say thank you to all who have contributed as its reignighted my PC mod passion.

I bought one of these a few weeks ago by accident (ordered while tired). BEST mistake ever, im in love with this case.
Case to-do list:
1. Cut out side window so the bottom chamber can be shown. Status: Reading forum to learn how.
2. Choose a colour theme and paint. Status: thinking of an ironman colour theme.
3. Add Watercooling CPU+VGAx3 Status: Ordered
4. Overclock to the moon! Status: Overheating issues due to lack of water cooling and 7970's x3 cause sooooo much heat.

Nothing to do with the HAF XB but newegg has some nice deals on components if anyone is interested.
