Most of the mod sites have tutes for modding the covers to attach to the drive. The button is the hard part. There are also custom drive covers available, but matching the grill is hard. A Guy

True, almost every case I have owned, except the switch 810, has had exposed drives. It really does not bother me. Besides, look at the design of the case. It is an excellent case very well laid out and put together and solid as a rock. But, elegant was never the intent of Cooler Master for the entire HAF line.

Oh yes, i can't complain too much, it's definitely the most well designed case I've ever had it's just the one thing that bothers me about it. It doesn't look that bad, but just one of those "would be nice" things, so thought I'd ask the question. At least it's a black drive.

Excuse the wiring mess... you normally can't see that, but I popped the back cover to install a new HDD.

I've been meaning to put some pics up for a while... I love the clean wiring of this case. My phone decided for some reason it doesn't like the lighting, even though it took one just fine 2 minutes ago



and this is a much better shot of it, with all the covers on

hehe thanks, it's a complete mess behind the other cover, but you can't see that, so I don't mind.

The only thing i haven't done is fit the wheels. Somehow with a case just under a meter tall, I don't think that's what they mean by mobile computing.

You think the back of yours is bad

I won't be praising Corsair customer service so quick next time. That psu i'm trying to rma is still sat here. They replied to my rma request with a shipping label and nothing else, No comments or anything 6 days ago. So i replied saying that the cost of shipping from the uk to the Netherlands would be as much as the psu cost's and that this pc is needed as my daughter has just started high school and now has no pc. I'm still waiting for a reply

If your in the UK (as your flags suggest), next time I would try Novatech. They are really good, when I built this rig, I was getting BSODs that pointed to a bad GPU.

They took it back, tested it, sent it back to Gygabite when they couldn't find anything wrong with it, all completely free of charge (well a couple of quid postage... but if it goes over £8 you can pay for a pre-paid box from them. It turned out it was my PSU in the end, nothing really wrong with it, my graphics card was just trying to pull more power on the 12V rail than it was rated for. Learnt my lesson that day... I thought it seemed a bit cheap for the specs. Hope you get it sorted soon anyway =/.

If you get really stuck, I have that PSU still if you need it. It's no good to me, but might fit your requirements.

Yes mate i'm in the uk. I usually use can or Aria pc but just to save a few quid i used DABS and when i went to rma though them i found that it was a few days over the 12month return period they offer. So it has to go to Corsair.
I've heard a lot of good things about Novatech but haven't used them as yet.

Thats a very kind offer of the psu chap thanks but i'll get it sorted soon enough. If need be she can use her laptop
Besides it's always good to keep a spare knocking around.

Edit: Corsair finally got back to me so hopefully they'll move a tad faster now

Hello. If you are outside of 30 days you will need to pay for shipping to our hub. I will ask customer service to see if they can make a exception.
