Karoa Posted August 10, 2013 Share Posted August 10, 2013 I've run into a bit of a snag with my fancy 900D case. I've noticed that the plate you attach the motherboard onto (the exact term for this escapes me at the moment, but for now I'll call it the "motherboard tray") is warped out of the box. This is where it gets a bit tricky, in that I have pretty much voided any sort of warranty by physically modifying the case by drilling out the rivets holding the 5.25" bay in place. (Really wish they'd been screws..) The mobo tray was warped before I removed the bay, something I noticed halfway through the procedure, though I have no pictures of this (there was about 0.5mm of space between the tray and 5.25" bay, between the bottom two rivets holding the two together). I've attached pictures, hopefully it's visible. The tray curves quite a bit, suggesting that the tray was cut to incorrect dimensions and forced in. (To me, the absence of any sharp crease in the metal rules out that it was bent using any sort of force as a result of the drilling.) I've found that it's pretty much impossible to get it straightened out, as the tray is just too long to actually fit where it's supposed to without curving. Forcing it to straighten by attaching some sort of stud with screws/rivets would result in a crease... (I have not done this.) I'm hoping that this is a known manufacturing problem and can get a replacement sent out. As far as I can tell, it's attached to the rest of the case with screws, so it should be easy enough to replace. Any chance of getting a replacement tray sent out, or at least a price estimate for buying a new one (if that's possible, rather than buying a whole new case)?
