Whoops, right you are. Thought I saw a tube going to one of the GPUs and a SLI block. Should probably have viewed the pic full size, heh. My bad.

It simply wasn't in my budget at the time of the build. I will be adding a reservoir, Indigo Extreme, and another 240 radiator to the loop, as well as some water blocks for the cards. So basically the flow will go out of the pump into the CPU, radiator, cards, radiator, reservoir, pump.

Seems like it is no big deal...everything is cool here, I processed my RMA through another company so Corsair doesn't have to deal with it. It doesn't matter that our system is broken and in the end the customer pays for it...
Acavella, I too live in Germany and have an APO. I sent a request to Corsair for replacement cables for my AX1200, they told me the same thing regarding APO boxes. They did, however, send the cables to my physical address, an off-base (international) address.

I don't know if this assists you (and if you live in on-base housing it likely doesn't), but I just wanted to let you know that, at least in my experience, they're willing to work with you to some extent.

Also, I work as a customer service rep for a financial institution, and just like Corsair, we have certain communication and shipping policies that we, even to assist a customer, cannot violate. Just like Corsair, the answer would be the same if you talked to me or to my supervisor. Any exception made would have to be far, far above my pay grade, if it could be made at all. Frankly, I think that the offer of a refund, while not ideal, was indicative of their willingness to do what they could for you given their limitations. I'm not trying to defend a company policy that I too dislike, but I think, given the circumstances, their customer support is better than you would receive elsewhere.

Just wanted to offer my perspective as someone who toils away in a similar field.

Actually I am thinking about a 200 in the front in a push pull with the fan from the top.

Apparently not. He never contacted me, he returned the drive to newegg and then proceeded to say how he'll never buy another Corsair product. Can't win 'em all, I guess.

To my suprise Corsair actually sent me an RMA email back today in less than 24 hours. So that was good.

Corsair Graphite 600T White case
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO Z68 Motherboard
Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge CPU overclocked to 5Ghz
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 memory

Good job, looks hot. You should use Eve's giggle as a startup sound.

I won't get into the cables... Yes true, 9 times out of 10 bending the hell out of cable won't do anything to it. However, my job deals with building of cables; power, signal, etc... Some of the cables we build can cost as much as $10,000 and we focus on every dB of loss through the cable, not just does it transmit or not... This has probably cause me to become over sensitive over the years to cables/cable management, etc...
I agree, you shouldn't have to. However, if a friend was in a jam and needed a hand I'd be more upset if he didn't ask for an assist. It's not much of a bother for a bud.

Yeah, if I had $10,000 cables I wouldn't want to bend them much either, however for PC builds it's just not going to make any difference unless one of the conditions that can damage a cable are met. I've crumpled IDE cables into little balls to hide them under drive bays and such with no loss in performance or damage to the cables.

I have to agree that it's too bad about Corsair being guilty of "tunnel vision" when it comes to shipping. I really like their stuff too, and I think their customer service is top notch, but being so ridged as to be unable to make exceptions can lead to loss of customers and reputation. All companies should try and be flexible when it comes to policy. (Ah yes grasshopper, the flexible reed can bend in the wind while the ridged tree breaks...or something like that).

I am of two minds when it comes to case lighting. I admit it can look cool, and does make a case more interesting. On the other hand, running it 24/7 would be so gaudy.

That email is very disappointing. Only made it to Supervisor level, and seems like they were just closing it out because you are getting help from another source, failing to see the big picture. I don't blame you for avoiding Corsair in the future.

The reason I didn't mount my 3.5 devices side ways in the 5.25 bay like some suggested is because it looked like I would have to mash the power and data cables to fit.
Ok ok, I admit the (3 cornered) fan idea was a little strange. But, I would have thought 3 3/4 fans would be better than 3 fans, but most likely it wouldn't make much difference.

The NZXT LED strips have a controller that lets you turn them off and have three intensity levels. Some fans have that ability too, but I think I would prefer to make an on/off circuit for fan LEDs myself. BTW, the NZXT 200mm fan we use (at least mine) have mounts for LEDs in the fan housing. Been thinking about adding some and wiring them into the LED strip controller.

I agree that this is an area where Corsair could improve. To be fair, a lot of companies have that same policy but I believe they could have worked something out before it became an issue. At least Corsair George and "Jamie Macias-Nguyen, Customer Service Supervisor" were willing to help out. How many other companies would have people in them willing to go so far? Again though, it should never have had to become an issue in the first place. Policy needs an update.

I also agree that SATA cables seem a little more...brittle? than most cables, however I have also bent them real good to hide length without any problems. Cables with 90 degree connectors and metal clips help a lot.
