I think it's because when the computer is off, there is no positive pressure to stop dust from entering.
And no negative pressure for dust to draw in from.
Actually TBH pressure in the stock arrangement is probably equal but even in my previous case that had a serious filter still built up dust.

But, they'll ship longer ones out for free and they don't even want the shorter ones back...me thinks I will attempt to mount the USB 3.0's in a PCIe slot...biggrin.gif

The channel moves very slowly. Because we ship by container, each account orders hundreds of these things at a time. And sometimes that's 2-3 months worth of inventory. Many resellers are still selling through their first shipments.

All the new stuff for the past two months that's come out of the factory has the longer cables, but it takes a few months to trickle into the channel.

Just went out returned my Vipers, bought an AX1200i Corsair PSU and a couple 840 EVO's, waiting on my RAM from newegg. Gonna submit my ticket to Corsair tonight for my case since my motherboard won't be out till end of next month, I'd rather not get caught on the short end of the stick.

Also looking @ The corsair braided cables, deciding on a color, seeing as the case is black, figuring a nice red set would go great with it! So pretty much EVERYTHING minus the RAM is corsair at this point lol. Woulda grabbed the Dominator Platinums but the 120$ price diff just didn't make sense for the aesthetics. Oh gotta order the filters for the case too. All that's left now is to order my CPU and Motherboard after.

Anyone have recommendations for cooling on the PSU side of the case? Or at least for good airflow? Or would there not be an issue w/ heat on that side?

OH and Fan controllers, saw some digital display ones at my store, but nothing that came off as new technology to me, and are there controllers that control more than 4-6 fans?

There is no issue with heat at all. My SSD stays at normal temps and it is the only thing on that side. You don't need a controller that controls more than six fans unless you really just want to perfect every single fan by itself. I'd suggest just hooking up mutliple ones to each channel. I.E. Front fans to channel 1, top fans to channel 2, etc It really just depends on your set up how you configure the fan controller.

So im not the only one whos power switch, led, hdd light ect was to short? I just got my case on tuesday and that was probably my biggest beef with it.. Luckily i had some servo wire extensions from my RC cars that used to get my power button working atleast.. Should i just contact corsair about this? I almost said screw it and started cutting wires and making my own! but my better judgement kicked in lol

Ah didn't know you could assign multiple to 1 channel , good to know I thought it was 1 per lol.

Also Does it matter which way I mount the PSU? I got the AX1200i but if I put it in correctly the fan is now facing the back of the motherboard, which concerns me a bit, flipping it upside down has it face the other way, but just wanna verify if there is any issue with either.

You thought only 1 will work?

You will have a issue with facing it towards the mobo, it's supposed to draw air from the side panel

I wana get this but i'm a little slow on understanding how to install it.
It seems to have a pwm connector but i don t think thats for connecting to the mobo. I randomly read someone on this forum said to alter a connector to fit a molex.

Anyway, I need my hand held for a moment and can someone tell me everything. Could I install this with power connected to the psu? What are the steps for proper connection? Is this a good buy or bad buy?

Just built my Carbide machine! Loving the case so far!

I can't recall and I am too lazy to take my rig apart, but can you change out the SATA cables that connect to the components side?
