Default Corsair Air 540 Question

Hey :)
i am using the Corsair 540 Air since 3 months.
Well, everytime my gfx card's are getting warmer (65°C), the case is cracking.
so i looked into the case and saw, that the screws are getting loose.
so i got a screwdriver and tighten them up.
(Screws of the GFX Card's and the Mainboard.)
it really sucks and i am getting annoyed of it. ._.

pls help :D

(sorry for misspelling, i am 14 yrs old and from germany :P )

What screws are you mentioning Norikkkk? It's never hot enough inside the case to affect the metal.

Hi Nordikkkk,

You're not the only one with this sort of "issue". My 300R side window cracks too when GPU reaches higher temps. But well. As long as it doesn't break, I don't care (Using headphones ;) )

Asus screws? I always use the screws provided with the case. I see you are running SLI, silly question it wouldn't be vibration would it? Maybe some threadlock? :)

I've never heard of this before. Can you show us on a picture which screws are coming loose?
