Yes I'm using the bottom HDD cage, that kind of bummed me out. But i'm also planning on getting a couple of INTEL SSD's when they are back in stock. At that point i'll have no need for the raptor or the bottom cage.

Doh! ... yeah I just got through reading a couple of threads and watching some videos on youtube about these. Man that sucks. Maybe I'll just stick with my ugly Noctua's then.

Thanks for the heads up...

5. Hot Swappable and SSD's issues.
6. SATA backplate issues with hard drives (BSOD or faulty backplate's).

Can anyone comment on the following listed above. Oupavoc listed that these were first batch issues and should not be appearing or happening again but posts on Corsair's forum reveals that the first batches are still floating around. Why is there no recall for the faulty first batches that have certain lot codes. I also remember Oupavoc mentioning that NCIX is currently on the 5th batch (as of his post at that date) but I checked the stock quantities and the Toronto Warehouse has roughly 58 in stock and any one of them could be remanants of the first batches even in the Vancouver warehouse.
I have heard about a couple of them and did not know that #4 was an issue to others as well.

1. Power supply alignment and placement issues. - No Issue
2. Expansion slot alignment issues. - No Issue

3. Motherboard and alignment (standoff) issues. - No Issue

4. Sticky Power Button. This is true of my case, did not know others had an issue. My issue with the power button is having to hold the power button a little longer or press it a couple times sometimes for it to turn on

5. Hot Swappable and SSD's issues. - N/A

6. SATA backplate issues with hard drives (BSOD or faulty backplate's). Only using one, but still No Issue

This is the only item that i had an issue with on your list. My Zalman PS did not fit flush due to the power connector, I had to use the dremel the case a little to make it fit.

I will also add another one to your list:
The tool-free design for 5.25†drives - It just does not do a good job holding smaller length devices (i.e. fan controller, etc.).

Here is what I posted a few pages back:

Yes it would be possible if you have the right power supply and you would have to have it on the side of were the cables do NOT come out of the power supply.

Meaning, I would have about 1 to 2mm's from my HX850 corsair PSU, but if I had a 1000 watt PSU then no it would not fit.

I agree you would have better luck with placing dual 240 rads down there as I have seen the one on xtremesystems as well. That is actually where I got the idea of how to place my bottom RAD.

What would be great is get the solid panel from corsair for $20 and place the 240 RAD grills on both sides then put your two 240 RADS down there and cut and create your own window in the solid panel.

Here is a pic measuring the distance. You would have a tenth of an inch in between my HX850 PSU.

or get one of these and have no worries. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=23950

I had an issue fitting my SSD into the hot swappable drive bay.

I didn't want to properly slide into the sata port, so i had to press down on the drive to give it some weight, seemed to slide in just fine after that

normal HD's dont have the issue since they're a lot heavier.
