If the same had happened to me (and I do not recommend this to anyone) I would strip out everything except the riser cable from the C1 and put it into a regular ATX case - making sure the rads have fans on them. Get everything installed and tested in a chassis where I can easily figure out/replace the faulty component. If it all worked, I would beg Corsair to send or let me buy the 'fixed' cable. Depending on this conversation, I would then evaluate my situation, and either live with a different case or figure something else.

Disassembling a C1 is not the easiest experience - to put it in perspective Linus of Tech Tips fame broke his when he did it for a review...

Yes, I was an idiot purchasing corsair one second hand, but is it the statement Corsair team would love to hear? I mean look at Apple - they are supporting and take responsibility for the product, why should it be different for Corsair? They build a product and are saying that it is an engeering masterpeace, so is it a masterpiece only for those who bought it from the store directly and peace of .... for second-hand users or is that product is good for all of the users?
