Sorry you guys are having these issues. There have been more than enough sold where that issue is non-existent for the most part. All you need is wade through the umpteen hundered pages or so to see that.
Where did you guys buy your HAFs'? I'm not sure that it will, but it could make a difference. thinking.gif

this isn't a wide spread issue...but at the same time it isn't isolated either.

Your pics look exactly like mine. I managed to squeeze in my GPU by flexing the back of the case but it was pretty difficult.. I can't get my soundcard secured at all though.

Same. I get this with every case i have. Am sure it is the cards too! But the cards still go into the slot so no worries.

that gap in the pic is somthing i had in the past with other cases but i hardly would call it a major problem..
if it was obv damaged or so, then i would throw a hissy fit over it . trust me, dont stress over it bro like i did, that would drive me nuts and not worth the frustration.

when u put in a exp card in a slot (isa/pci agp pce-e etc ) its gonna be off as u can wiggle side to side ( thats normal when inserting cards thats not tied down ), its not gonna be straight upright 100% of the time. it will only be straight when you wiggle it sideways into position where it lines up with the holes to where u put in a thumbscrew.

just move it sideways a lilbit and put in the thumscrew and screw it in righty tighty

I think what he meant was he tried that and it popped out of the PCI slot.

I agree with you, there will always likely be some small degree of misalignment.

But that pic you highlighted is the Lian Li case, not the HAF X.

The HAF X being steel, can't really bent to get it in closer position to the PCI cards.

The Lian Li being aluminum, can be flex slightly to get the screws in, though the case is nowhere near as badly misaligned as my HAF X to begin with.

Either way, the photos that I took don't really show all the details. But I can assure you, the gap between a card's bracket and the HAF X is simply too wide.

Try as I might, no amount of wiggling or pushing or pulling will get the card to line up with the screw holes of the case.

I've tried with 2 HD5830 cards, one GTX 580, one Auzentech Forte... none of them will even be in a position where I can even get a single screw to go in.

I'm not saying that this is a widespread problem, because that would be a ridiculous assumption.

I'm just saying that a case like this should have never made it out of the factory in the first place.

I also had alignment issues when i got my X. I was changing over from a 932. I have never seen anything like this before, whether it was a cheap case or a more high end one and whether it was a 10$ exp card or a 1000$ card. I RMAd the case after providing pictures to the seller and they exchanged it for me but i must say that although the second case was better it was still off.

It's worst with x1 cards. I have a TV tuner and for a while it was not being detected upon boot-up, so i had to shut down and wiggle and even bend the card bracket and try and get it to sit good enough for it to get detected. In hind sight i should have not settled for this second case. I didn't even think of using washers. In my mind i was like "isn't ATX a standard? aren't all the different distances and measurements supposed to be compatible and equal across all products?". I will be water cooling my system soon and might try some washers and see how it goes, if i'm in the mood to rip out the mobo.

So bad batch? Quality control? Fine. It just sucks though., when i was working in a 15$ case a while back and everything fit so well that even Mike Holmes couldn't have made it better.

if you still have your box post your lot # and where you bought it from so others can compare whether or not it was a bad batch or just random screw ups
