yeah i tried plugging my headphone/mic into my front jack and there was some static, though nothing too horrible, and im running two 4890's, and the wire for the front jack it literally resting on the top 4890. But the static is a non-issue for me since i don't plug into the front jacks.

@richy hot air rises so i would say pushing the air out. Also the air inside the case shouldn't be to hot to still have good water cooling.

blowing air out the top or blowing in ? I'm using water cooling so what would be better for a rad ?
I wouldn't like it if the rad was blowing heat into my case, even if there is a slight chance that it might not heat up other components.

This thing is a MONSTER, I mean plugging the jack into the back obviously takes no effort but I'm limited to the length of my headphones.

And something as simple as a headphone jack not functioning correctly on a sub $200 case bothers me :S

I bet you if there was a shielded cable instead of the one they currently have it would be fine.

In the link I provided there was a guy who claimed that the headphone jack had its grounding linked with the usb, thus casing all the static. He the separated the grounding between the usb and the headphones and he resolved the issue.

Honestly I'm a bit hesitant on doing this because it would automatically void my warranty on attempting to fix a fault that wasn't caused by me.

Requested a RMA from corsair this morning, hopefully they can get back to me.

So I received my 800D and am starting to mock everything up. I have a 240 black ice rad that I wanted to mount sideways in the bottom of the case removing the hard drive bays cutting out the sides and using a bitspower grill. But it seems to tall to so Ill guess Ill have to mount it flat. Also purchased a EK res with flow meter but it takes up 2 5.25 bays. But the case wont let a double fit. Can I just dremel the tabs out? Anyone done this? Thanks!

I removed mine by hand with a file to fit my EK Bay Spin, apparently you can also bend them back.

You can still put a 240 Rad sideways down the bottom you just have to put abit of force on the radiator when your pushing it up sideways.

Will try to get some of the completed rig up tomorrow evening. Future projects include cable sleeving on all the fans (even though you cant really see the wiring :S, PSU, and the cold cathodes I have coming in. Also will be adding water on the 470s.
