How long have you had the case Deltrus?
How long have you had the case Deltrus?
About 11 months now. I noticed the issue when I first got it, but didn't feel it was such an issue. I now know of a case I definitely would like to have instead (Cosmos 2) and will be getting more than enough money for it, so I just need to see what can be done.
And the warranty is until the end of this coming or the next December.
If I were you I would just email technical support and inquire about it. I do not see why they wouldn't let you do such a thing considering the original case was defective to begin with.
I realise their RV02 has some support for radiators, but last i read it wasn't exactly suitable for proper watercooling due to the bottom having an extrusion preventing fitting of rads down there so it's very limited in what you can do with it.
Likewise, i like my 800D very much but it was also too limited in watercooling capability and absolutely awful at air.
However, if someone combined the RV01, 800D (particularly for the chamber divider in the middle), and then expanded upon the watercooling support, it'd be a real consideration. You know, dedicated space to mount pumps, perhaps sell different swapout accessories for different pump models (thus eliminating the need for the stands and heads), enough space for a 3.140 rad (with 120 support too) as well as a 1.140 seperate space at the back, and large enough to fit in 10 3.5 drive bays and 4 5.25" drive bays, and 25-50mm of clearence behind the motherboard tray (along with a load of rubber grommets to feed cables) i think it'd be the ultimate case. It's just come down that none of the big companies investing in such a case.
Still not heard any plans from Corsair on a new case though. They recently announced both the Carbide 300R and Obsidian 550D, but neither of them are supersized cases. Silverstone also have the RV04 on the way (http://www.4gamer.net/games/017/G001762/20111008005/) but again, it's a smaller case.
I don't see why not. the Haf X is a 200$ case. Sending you another one would seem like a loss compared to letting you buy the Cosmos.
I guess that's just how I see it in my head Deltrus. I hope it works out for you.
i would love to get this case with a phase changer, but its 480 euros base, 1,200 euros with the phase changer, and i'd still have to pay VAT & shipping to the states

It'd be cheaper to befriend a metalworker and get them to weld together a case to fit your needs. After all cases aren't all that complicated really :P just gotta get the dimensions right and the holes in the right place(s).

Backplates are the problem though.
The I/O, PCI-slots, etc.
Cool, been thinking about getting some arms myself for my two monitors. (I also have a smaller desk.)
Btw, just checked out your CPU siggy, damn. Your voltage for 4.7GHz is insanely good, I suggest posting in the overclocking boards forum thread. :>
Ah, I see. Sorry, I was a little confused what was going on there.
That's unfortunate Deltrus. Offer to sell it to a friend, after being fixed, and then put that money toward the Cosmos?
Maybe, though I don't have too many friends who are into building computers and such, or would even care. >_< I have a feeling I'd have to spend the $350. =/
