Default Graphite 780T Front Panel

Hi There,

Has anyone had to change the front panel on a 780T yet?

I've just been doing a build inside a brand new 780T, when all of a sudden one of the wires for the USB 2.0 header just popped out! On further inspection, it doesn;t look it was stripped/crimped correctly.

Oh well - one in a million chance . . . what to do next?

I've raised a trouble ticket : 6586706.

My ideal resolution would be a replacement front panel and wiring loom. Does anyone know how tricky it is to remove and replace the front panel?

My other alternatives are a little sub optimal. Either return the entire case - after I've mounted everything, and it barely fits inside my car too! Or cut the USB2.0 cable from the front panel and splice in a new one.

So - I'm staking my hopes on a replacement front panel - just curious how easy it is to fit?

I do hope the front panel can be replaced? Getting worried here - that no one else has experienced this . . . or had to swap out their wiring loom yet?

The last thing I want to do is strip the case down for a full replacement. However, if that's the only option - then, so be it I guess?

It should be designed to be replaced. I'd be surprised if they didn't send you just the I/O cluster.

Thanks for the update . . .

I'm hoping for a new I/O cluster/loom/front panel - whatever the terminology. I guess they're just busy after the 3 day weekend.

I mean it's trivial really, just the USB2.0 header. But, after dropping $180 on the case, it should be spot on perfect.

Anyway - thanks a lot. This is my first corsair 'incident' - lets hope it all goes well. I'm using a corsair PSU, cooler and RAM also; which all seem fine.

My replacement I/O cluster has been shipped . . .

However, I'm really struggling to work out how to remove the existing front panel I/O cluster from the 780T.

Screws removed, front panel feels really tight inside the plastic surround. I can;t figure out if it just needs to be 'persuaded' or there are some plastic barbs.

Does *anyone* from corsair have some basic guidance on how to do this? It's driving me ever so slightly insane!

Hi!

I have a similar problem with my 780t. The Power led under the Power on button, suddenly stopped functioning and now I waiting for a replacement part to be shipped.

If you figure out how to remove/replace the front panel or if you mention any tricky steps, please let us know.


Thank you in advance!

P.S. Some photos should be appreciated.

1. How do I remove the I/O Panel ?
A. First, remove the front fascia by pushing in the three tabs from inside the fascia, then push towards the front of the case.
B. Next, unscrew the 2 screws at each side of the panel.
2. Does the polarity matter with the I/O panel’s power and reset header?
No, only the LED headers.

Confused Graphite 780T Front Panel

Hi again,

I replaced the front panel's cirquit board and everything works perfect. After two weeks, another LED stoped function on the fan speed indicator (the middle LED). Does anyone know, if there is any known issue with the front panel board on Graphite series 780T?

Thanks again...

No known issues as far as I've heard. Maybe just bad luck? Contact customer service and see what they can do. :|
