The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 1226

post #12251 of 19729
So here's a little followup to my previous post regarding my new case and missing parts:

I doubt I'll buy anything CoolerMaster in the near future unless I get an apology from CM soon. Don't get me wrong, I like my new case and all but it feels as if it's been used; especially considering a lot of the smaller accessories were MIA and everything appeared as if someone already unpacked it and then returned it but forgot to include all the parts. I contacted support four days ago by email and never received a response to date. That simply is unacceptable in my opinion. I spent money on their product, the least they can do is provide support for it. I realize much of what I'm missing can be replaced via a trip to the hardware store but seriously, I shouldn't have to do that. I'm simply asking CM to mail me the missing parts, of which probably cost them $2, yet I've gotten no response to date. That says something about the company IMHO. Hopefully they are just crazy busy and I'll get a response eventually but until then I'm not buying anything CM. It's a shame too, I like CM products. In fact, I was planning on buying some CM fans and the side window next. Oh well, it gives me an excuse to mod a window myself and there are plenty of other companies to get fans from.

actually your best bet to get missing stuff responded to or busted parts responded to is use the cm forums, and post it like everywhere lol

It looks awesome, but can you have the pic hosted on a different site? It's killing the load time for this thread (at least for me).

Or, if that's too much of a hassle then the image can always be changed to just a text URL.

I mean, every single time I load this page (page 123), I have to wait over a minute for this "sadpanda" server.

Sorry to hear about this. When I ordered the clear side panel for my CM690 II, the plexiglass was broke and cracked in various places, even though the box was intact. I contacted customer service and they replied within 1 day and eventually sent out a whole new side panel (panel + plexiglass), for free, even though I only asked for just the plexiglass. They were pretty good to me, not sure why you're not getting any help.

I load all my pics as JPEG which should help a lot.

Why is it taking so long for the thread to load for you TwoCables?
It's only takes milliseconds for me.

Probably because it's in your cache. It takes a while for it to load on my computer too.

I already explained why. But I will try to clarify it further:
  1. I have 100 Posts Per Page selected, so if I keep this setting, then there are 43 posts more to go before a new page is created so that I no longer have to deal with the post I'm referring to (the one that has that photo).
  2. If I let this entire page load, then every page load after that is extremely fast because it's in my cache. But if I restart Firefox, then it's slow again.
How many Posts Per Page do you view? Is it 10? How many pages do you see in this thread? If you're on page 123 as well and if this thread's page loads almost instantly even if you restart your browser, then the reason why it's slow for me would be that the connection that I have to this "sadpanda.us" server is a bad one. There's nothing I can do about that. But if that's not the case, then I can do something about it, and so that's why I made that request.

Take now for example: it's loading slower than it would on dial-up!!!! That image is really pissing me off.


Edit: It took over 7 minutes for that image to download. I just refreshed the page, and the image appeared instantly, but I am still seeing "Transferring data from sadpanda.us..." in the Status bar! I bet I'll see that for the next 7 minutes now. (edit: it took 2 minutes for that to disappear from the status bar...)

This is why I use the webspace that is provided by my ISP.

I see.
So you could speed it up by reducing the amount of posts per page but it an easier reference for answering posts.

Is that the only ISP in your area?

I do agree that pics should be in a different format or a lot smaller.
