Great Tower, Except.. 01/27/2014
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Great Tower, high quality, great cable management hands down the best tower I've ever owned, awesome looking!
Starts on fire & online support from corsair is the worse I've ever dealt with.
Well, the molex cable wires that connects to the fan controller to run the 3 LED fans starts on fire & this is a COMMON issue that happens often! Google it! It's on reviews, on the forums & so on. Putting in a support ticket through corsair forget it..I waited 2 weeks with NO reply..so I called & they sent me a replacement front panel asap however from non stop reading realized they actually changed nothing to fix the issue in the replacement so I'm not bothering running the fans through the controller in fear my house will burn down when I'm not home. I'm running the fans through the MB & PSU hookups instead. The fans come with a connector designed only to hookup to the fan controller but if you cut the extra 3 tabs off it hooks up fine to normal 3 pin connectors. Such a shame corsair is not recalling this KNOWN issue or at least sending out FIXED replacement panels, a house is going to burn down and its going to be a nasty lawsuit heading their way, did not expect such a big flaw coming from such a high rated company =/
