All that crap they attached to the case...... don't do nothing.

Not doing Fractal any favors by posting that mess.

hey! that was supposed to be my comment, but you've said it all pretty much. quite an ugly mod.
post #2964 of 15935
I think that's typical of many of Bill's corporate mod's. While I wouldn't want to use it everyday, I appreciate the skill and effort that went into it.

Well I was going to post some new photos of the work I had done but I had an issue with the Bitfenix 24-pin ATA Sleeved extension I had bought a few weeks back. I fitted it to the motherboard and to the existing PSU ATX connector fine the 1st time, all looking good. However I needed to unplug it (from the PSU connector, not mobo) and when I tried to plug it back it just would not connect together, then one of the wires fell out and 2 of the cables the braiding has come away from inside the socket too.

I'm really hacked off about this as the extension was not cheap and it was fallen apart already. I'm not sure I can return it to SpecialTech as I have had it for 30 days, is there a Bitfenix rep on this forum that could help. Or have I just wasted £10 on a part that I can not use?

Cheers

Yeah, PM xbournex about it. Sounds like it was faulty product.

Looking for a BitFenix Rep on a Fractal thread... Yeah, I don't see one... Maybe try contacting Bitfenix? They have contact info on their site... biggrin.gif

Cheers @Blizlake @xbournex for your help, yep not the best place for me to have posted my question sorry, I was just still seeing red - Good news tho' just got a reply back from Specialtech and they have issued a RMA for a replacement - Shame this has happened, never mind just means a delay in the re-build and going to wait and see if the replacement one is ok before I order other extension cables.
