Yes, but I don't have a support account according to the claiming page, and when I try to create one it says that my email address was taken.

This is what I mean. Aren't you allowing the same...

Ok, another "can't login to support" problem. Guys, what happened over there?

I think as part of your password consolidation effort, someone may have borked the database.

As many others have complained, I also cannot login to support. Nor can I create an account because my...

Thanks.

It's irksome when lit up right next to two other lit up SP's that are rock solid. :( So you think it's the sticker? I really didn't seem that way, but it's murder to tell, because it's...

Top SP120 fan wobbly (it came with Corsair 570x case)

First of all, I'm having trouble telling if it's the whole fan assembly that is wobbling, or just some kind of center circle (the black center) that is somehow wobbling, though I can't see how that...

It's not precisely a neutral gray, but you're right: Almost no one on earth would characterize it as blue (other than the one reviewer I saw that made me nervous). Having color science in my...

570x -- Is the HDD cooled better with cover inward or outward?

The 570x has two mounting positions for standard 3 1/2" HDD.

They are designed out the gate to take the HDD oriented with the drive's (often green) motherboard facing outward.

However, if you...

570x -- Can I turn the Corsair logo into an HDD activity light?

Regarding those weird white-only logos (on the PSU shroud and on the front bottom) of the case.

They seem to be powered by the sata ports (for some reason). This leads me to wonder:

Well, for the record, I'm switching to the ASUS TUF z270 Mark 1.

(With the hopes that the H100i v2 actually fits at the top of the Corsair 570x over all that plastic shielding on the Mark 1.)

Blake, I'm curious: I'm almost certain this is a "no", but is there enough height in that case to hold 3 140 fans, and/or a 420 radiator in the front?
