Hi there, I just completed a new PC build with this case, it's gorgeous but there is something that is driving me crazy... where is the HDD activity led??? For a case in this range of price I would expect this feature...

Please advice

Thank you!

Hi @ivan5150,

the 7000D Airflow is not equipped with a HDD activity LED. Hence there's also no corresponding cable attached to the I/O panel (see screenshot from quick start guide attached).

Thank you!

I have to say.... this is disappointing 😞 It's still a very useful feature imho, anyway thank you for the fast response!

you can still add one, but it's not really useful nowadays. it's just a feature we're used to have but serves no real purpose, besides telling us the PC is somewhat active. But you tend to notice when the PC is frozen without needing a LED anyway 😛

there are kits like this one that allow you to add a simple LED in the case if your PC is on the desk and you can see the insides :

You can also make your own, it's a very simple part to make

Well, I still think it's somehow useful, they should use the Power Led also for HDD activities, just like NZXT...

you can still connect the power LED to HDD pins if you don't care about power LED. that's a free solution ! Of course you won't have power LED, but if HDD activity notice can be useful, power notice is not. you know when your PC is on basically (and there's status LEDs, debug LEDs on the motherboard if needed) . maybe worth the trade off?

Are you working for Corsair? 😆

I can live without HDD activity led, it's just a little detail, but you know... details make big difference! 😉 

Thank you!

Sorry, what can HDD LED can feed you you any detail? By flashing the LED only shown there is activities such as reading/writing. Other than that as to me, it useless. What detail are you talking about. HDD LED not a morse code proving you any SOS signal such as Dot dot dot dot. Dot dot. 4 dots for H, 2 dots for I.......Just move on.
