Is this something that might be fixable?

Also, for those of you that water-cool, where do you fasten your reservoir? Any of the existing holes or do you drill your own?

You could buy a new fascia for the Case (Whole frame with front I/O panel) here.
The way the pushpins work you could use a pencil and try to push the mechanism in by hand several times. But be carefull not to break any of the fragile pins. That fixed a "broken one" for me.

To the mounting options for a res:



There are lots and lots of holes around the three rubber grommets near the motherboard. Any reservoir with 1 mountingscrew per bracket should be fine.

That sounds a bit expensive though, I found the "airflow edition upgrade" here which is basically just a new air filter and front plate and it costed a third of the entire new price of the case, can't guess what a replacement front frame would cost (esp with shipping to Europe).

Thanks I will try that!

I looked at the two most obvious rows of holes but don't think they will work with my res (60mm dia) as it will hit the HD cage, Need to measure more though, The option I was going for is a res/pump combo sitting on top of the leftmost bottom fan, but then my graphics card was like 6 mm to long and interfered with the res (no luck) both height and sideways.

Lol, found a seller on eBay that would ship to Sweden and only wanted $13 for the replacement fascia, but they charged $73 for shipping...

You could still go for the pump res combo, placed on the left 120mm bottom fan just by using a smaller res.
If you place your GPU in the uppermost slot you might even fit an EK-XRES 140, with a total height of 200mm in there. Could be thight but in my configuration it should fit. Measured from the lower fan i have 240mm of clearance (fan -> GPU Block). With the 120mm fanbracket there should still be some place left.
An EK-XRES 100 would give you another 50mm clearance to the top and should fit by any means.

Yes, that's what I will be doing, I have confirmed with EK support and their "spider" mount (mount pump on 120mm fan) adds 12-13mm height to the stack (pump/res 178mm, fan 25mm + 12mm = 215-216mm and I measured 220mm to the bottom of the gfx card). The annoying bit is that it's just a matter of 3-4mm max and the res would have passed clear on the side of the gfx card. This means that I won't be able to get the top of the res without removing the gfx card though which might be an annoyance, but not a deal breaker. I now wish I didn't go for the gfx card I did as not only is it in the way but also I can't get a water block for it. If I could find someone to trade my 3975 for a 2975 I would in an instance. (both eVGA 970 SSC card, 39 with ACX 2.0+, the latter with regular ACX 2.0 and a shorter, reference PCB).
I quite like the idea of the spider mount as the DDC pumps tend to run hot and now the fan will blow fresh air directly onto the pump heatsink.

I got my 750D today, but there is something wrong with it - I can't connect my headphones threw the frontpanel jack, I can connect them in, but my PC won't registrer them. When I'm at sound manager theres nothing showing up on frontpanel connection? I have checked and connect the audio hd kabel to the motherboard correct.

edit: nevermind, i got it fixed

Was told by Corsair's FB admins to go create a ticket for my 2 year old case due to the broken front plate latch. Didn't hold much hope as the case is old, but within minutes got a reply with a RMA code. Big surprise really, now the caveat, they want me to send them my entire case down to Holland. This is my "daily driver" computer so clearly this isn't a practical (or economical) solution. But hey, points for trying at least.
Does anyone here know how to dismantle the front fascia from the case frame? (Maybe I can convince them to just send that part).

My airflow edition




Now I'm just waiting to get my hands on EK predator 360 to mount on the top.

Great! Thank you!
Very fast and good service from Corsair too, I misunderstood the request to send them my case (automated reply). They just wanted a screenshot or pdf of my receipt for the case and they immediately shipped out a replacement fascia despite my case being 2 years old (not quite, I guess the warranty is 2 years). So soon my case will be whole again.
Now my question is, buy the airflow edition upgrade parts? Can't decide if I like the mesh or clean look better. Thinking the airflow one with HD cage in the bottom would provide a better direct airflow over the gfx card.
