I agree with @Michalius.

Just use a hair dryer and it should make the glue on the sticker soft. Then you will have no problems peeling it off. Isopropyl alcohol could damage the plexy. I use it a lot at work, but I would never use it on anything I thought it might discolour. Heat works great. I use it to take labels off all the time. A hair dryer gets hot enough to soften the glue without damaging anything else. Only use alcohol as a last resort. If there is any sticky stuff left on the window, use a small piece of duct tape to remove it (stick the tape on and pull it off quickly over and over until the stick stuff is gone).

Is there a way to daisy chain 4 2pin fans together?
Any good single fan solutions I can use? I am going to keep my top 200mm as well and I am using air cooling so won't be installing upper rad.

Some Arctic PWM fans can be daisy chained. Look on newegg or tiger. Being PWM though you can't control them with the case fan-controller. You'll need a PWM controller of some type (which are also available in various forms). You could also do this yourself by wiring three-pin fans together, but make sure your fan controller can handle the wattage on a single channel. The wiring itself would actually be very easy to do. You could also use a PWM splitter to control 4 fans (like this: http://usb.brando.com/pwm-fan-splitter-cable_p01520c032d015.html ) but you'll have to look around for a 4 fan version, or make one yourself (by purchasing two of the ones in the link and splicing another fan connector in by using parts from the second one).

There are some really nice fan controllers out there that have one PWM controller channel and four (or more) 3-pin fan controller channels. I have one here (that I'm not using right now) that's a great controller. Using a PWM splitter you could control as many PWM fans as you want using that one channel (since a good PWM splitter takes power direct from the PSU). Here's the one I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811999220 and here's a picture from when I had it installed as a second controller:

450

The LEDs change colour depending on the RPM of the fans, and the LEDs on the left are for the PWM channel, so you can adjust it manually or press a button to change from low, to medium and high RPM. It's a pretty good controller and I would still be using it if I still had nine fans in my case.

If you use rubber grommets to put in the screw holes, it's a simple matter to clip the mesh in the area you want to put a screw for a larger fan. Installing a grommet in the area you snipped easily hides the cut portion of mesh and reduces noise. I've done this on the top inside mesh, and once you install the grommet you can't tell it's not factory.

Your replacement fan controller will be shipped out tomorrow.
Corsair Customer Service
That was on 5-29, still no fan controller or tracking # even after requesting one.
What gives with these people? They know they are having issues with these fan controllers and it still takes this long to get one replaced.
GRRRRRRRRRR mad.gif

So after a week of waiting and checking the front door for a fan controller that will never come I get this today:

Thank you for contacting Corsair.

We apologize for the delay in shipping your replacements to you. Unfortunately, due to a high demand of this part, this is currently on backorder.

Your replacement will be shipped out to you shortly once we have it in stock, estimate date for shipment will be on 06/22/2012. Once it shipped you will receive an email with the tracking number information.

Thank you!


GGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR mad.gif

Instead of high demand they should just admit high FAIL rate!!

Bought this case second hand and sadly previous owner has done thing i hate most and put that sticker to window frown.gif Any tips how to remove that without leaving sticker glue traces to it?

Same sticker on side panel but mine at the bottom. thumb.gif

These 2 locations are now copyrighted.






---- side stories ----

Time for a theme change from WHITE to RED internal ... I've just ordered:

4x Cougar Vortex (Black Edition) 1500RPM - I just want to try them really. =P I know I will set aside my GT-AP15 for my close friend (he's soon building a new rig) if I prefer those Cougar ones.
1x Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm RED
2x Cathode 12in RED
1x Antec Spot Cool 3000RPM - I need it to cool my X79 VRM!

Should be here next week.

Quick question, are any of your side doors a little wobbly? My mesh side is rock solid but my cable management door wiggles when locked in.

Have you tried swapping them to see if it's the side cover or the chassis? If you have a big rats nest like most of us have, make sure none of the cables are interfering (of course).

Yes I tried swapping them and it came out the box wobbling, I mean I can really inspect and see if something is causing it to not seat properly again but as I sit here on my new build I am realizing the wobbly door is not going to be anything I notice when I am not moving it.
