Thank you very much everyone for clarification, I guess with a radiator EK XE 360 will be the same, will have to be cut up or down to match the holes.
A greeting.

I just got a 780T through New Egg (black one) and have the same issue with the solid side panel. It's warped so one side pops out from the case. If I push it in, the other side pops out. Sometimes the panel will "pop" and flatten out some but it pops back when I attach it. The metal is very thin - too thin to be held in place by the one center latch IMHO. I was considering returning the whole case and getting another brand as this is a commonly reported problem and seems to be a design flaw. The window panel also does it a little but I think the window helps stiffen it up. If Corsair is going to use such thin metal for these large side panels, they should consider adding a stiffening ridge or brace that runs the span of the panel - either in an X pattern diagonally or one vertical and one horizontal.

Reading these posts, I see more reports of this problem and that Corsair will send a new side panel without a lot of hassle. So do I report this directly to Corsair through the support site or go through New Egg? I was going to return the case, then decided to just live with it because I figured a replacement panel would just do the same thing. I have not seen any posts from people who got a replacement panel reporting that it also was warped so I will give it a try.

I can't understand why Corsair would design such an innovative case with these nice big center latches and then make the side panels so thin that they warp if you look at them wrong. Comments?

Sorry to hear that, we'll get that taken care of for you. There is no need to contact Newegg and as for a resolution, we'll simply send you a side panel replacement. You can go to Corsair.force.com and submit your RMA request. Just make sure to specify which side panel (window/solid) needs replacement.

Yes, we've seen these warped side panel reports pop up here and there, but they are relatively in small percentage when compared to the unit sold that didn't have this issue. We've already addressed this particular issue and a fix was already put in place.

Thanks -I will contact Corsair about getting an RMA for that side panel. I am also going to look closer at the window side. As I said before, it is a little warped as well. I can probably live with it but I am going to take a second look.

Can I ask what the "fix" is? If the panel design has been modified, I would like to get one of the "fixed" ones. Is that what you are shipping out now to replace the warped ones?

Thanks Again ! It's nice to see manufacturers on these forums who actually respond to people when their posts are pointing out a design flaw, insufficient packaging or whatever, and then actually do something about it.

Yup, no problem at all. To address it, we've simply added an extra step in the production line to make sure those panels are aligned properly before leaving the factory.

None of the replacement panels have this warping issue anymore, but for some odd reason you get a bad one, let me know right away.

Got some time to make a little progress. Still waiting on pteg and fittings. I'm not sure about the placement of the res though. I am going to probably make a plexi cover for the psu and wires, so I'll need to move the res up. I am :rolleyes:still undecided on the coolant, white or black. The NoiseBlocker fans I got from ppcs where supposed to be b12-p's but they sent b12-1's. It would seem I have bad luck ordering new parts:rolleyes:

It seems you have not had to change the box to put the radiator on the front, do you?
And the NLoop not make noise like Push / Pull?
Good work and greetings.

Yeah, I had to modify the drive bays to fit the rad in place. I'm not sure about the noise in a push/pull, I have not tested it yet.

Thanks.
