So I just have to describe my problem (what's not working) to that email (europe@nzxt.com) ? How long would it usually take to get an answer ?


EDIT: I also had to lift one of the white "sticks" that keeps the top on the case (they go in holes) with a metal ruler or whatnot (the one that's between the USB ports and HDD/power LEDs) because it was too tight so I got fed up with that and just cut it off with a knife earlier because otherwise I'd scrape off part of the paint whenever I wanted to take that top pannel off. So, is it normal for that "stick" to be way thicker than the others and a real pain to pop out ?
Wow, I'm actually realizing how unlucky I got (how the hell can a single case have so many issues ?). Hopefully it was only one on the line and not a whole series of cases that went wrong.

Yup. Just email them and tell them what's going on.

I think you need to stop playing football with your case. smile.gif

That's what really bugs me about all this, I'm really careful with my stuff and take proper care of them (oh and by the way, all those issues were there on day 1). For the LED issues it could be the deliverer or storage who weren't gentle but the case didn't have any bruises).

Ok so I've sent an email to the address you gave me plus rma@nzxt.com and I filled a support thing too. That way I'm sure I've sent it to all the possible places.


Thank you biggrin.gif

Wait, that was normal? I thought I bent the pins in the molex connector, and that was the reason for the difficulty.

lol, I always have issues with Molex plugs. the darn pins inside them are always so loose you have to jiggle them around to get them to plug in, and then sometimes even jam one of the pins back in the connector... at this point, I say screw molex, everything should be converted to SATA and say goodbye to horrible connectors!

 

Also, sorry I haven't been so active on here, I was keeping touch on the FB page, but this page has sooo many posts just in 1 day, I can never keep up. For those who have posted their builds since Page 710, sorry I haven't noticed them, but I imagine they were nice!thumb.gif

Well, there is nothing else to plug into a fan controller.

I agree with you completely. Molex sucks, like you said they are always bent, crooked, loose, and when you push them in the pins pop out of the other side! EVERY ACCESSORY SHOULD RUN SATA POWER lol!

So I moved all of my components (finally) to my new Phantom 410 case I won a while back. I'm looking at making my full tower Phantom into a server. This is probably a stupid question but does anyone know if the Phantom could accommodate an old ssi ceb mobo? I know ssi ceb is similar to ATX but wanted to see if anyone knew about the Phantom specifically.

I remember, when I was building, that there were markings on my full sized phantom for SSI CEB and EEB motherboards; I might just be remembering that incorrectly, though. The CEB motherboard is slightly wider than the ATX one, so the 410 may not be able to house a CEB one.
