HAF X warp/deformation, anything to worry about?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've noticed that my HAF X case has a few indents in the side panels and the plexiglass window is slightly warped towards the middle.

Were these created during the manufacturing process? If not where did they come from? Excess heat from the components, or how they were handled during shipping? I assume the window deformation isn't normal. Should I replace it or just leave it if it doesn't pose a threat to the integrity of my computer? Thanks.

could of came like that but if it did not the heat could of warped the side window but not the side panel so my guess is shipping and no it does no harm

i have bone about a dozen HAF X builds, and this is actualy rather common... the only problem i have with the HAF series is that slight warping was rather common... luckily these slight bends never effect performance (mine is on the expansion slots so it takes some forcing to screw in the cards propperly)... i wouldnt worry about... if it realy bugs you, then you can work it out with a pad, small hammer, and a flat service smile.gif

EDIT: for the plexy, set it down on a piece of glass and ever so slightly hit it with a hair dryer... be careful though, as if it gets too hot the plexy will bubble and slightly discolor smile.gif
