  1. I need to know if the top section that houses the power and reset buttons are either made of plastic or metal. If it is metal then you have sold me on a case, if not....
  2. Again this wasnt at all any means to be rude to anyone here. I was just trying to be helpful in wishing you guys would make the quality products you used to make. I apologize if I came on too strong.
  3. I have seen another particular company, that makes all their cases of complete aluminum. Inside and out, and their prices are around the same as this one. I like the design of the case, but it just has too many glairing faults for me to purchase.
  4. I have been going back and forth over weither or not to buy this case. I actually got a chance to see one on display at my local CompUsa. I cannot express how happy I am I saw this case in person before ordering one. I have finally decided to stay the heck away from it. I am sorry what are you guys thinking?!?! The case is horrible. Its not sturdy at all. Its made out of very thin aluminum. It has way too much plastic for my taste which equals tacky. Side panels are horrible getting off and back on. I love looking at all the scrapes that are made removing and putting on the side panels. Aluminum door digs into the top plastic part of the case since it is very wobbly. This is not a bash, but guys wake up! Remember the solid sleek cases you used to make? Here is a hint, go back to what made you famous. Thick solid aluminum cases. The Praetorian 730 is probably your best case yet for this year. I wish there was a full tower version available. Everything else is just flat out tacky. Get a grip and come back to us, because everyday you are turning into your direct competitor company...(wont mention name)
  5. Since the 830 is so problematic. A full tower version of the Praetorian 730 , with the screwless brackets used on the 830. Now wouldn't that be nice? sigh...
  6. I have read that there are so many problems with this case, and I am wondering if i should bother. I have heard the side panels are a real pain to get off, and a lot of scrapes occur during the process. I am just wondering if the case scratches really easy on installing and removing components. Wear and tear with normal use is bad in my book. Can someone share their experiences?
  7. There is a small Dummy-PCI card that connects the power of the front panel and units fan. There is another power source that plugs directly into the wall that controls the pump itself.
  8. Feel free to call me an idiot. I noticed the power plug for the pump came unplugged.... I noticed this after I took most of it apart lol. Back at 19C! I feel really stupid right now.
  9. Yes its def hitting 80....especially under load. That is at speed 2 btw crap. No stock HSF either on hand. I guess Im out of a PC until I can get a HSF. Can I try and fill this thing with tap water until I can get a HSF? I could care less if its breaks it down... Its def got fluid the color to it is still blue. This stinks!
  10. Only cooling the CPU. Everything is clean on my PC inside and out. I am out of coolant since my last refill 6 months ago. It shouldnt be low again should it? I think Im about to say screw it and throw a Hyper 6+.... Will it harm anything to keep running it like this until I can get a resolution? Aquagate = issues... Problems from day one.
  11. Well I tried a software monitoring tool and its telling me 69C.... Which one is correct? Even so, they both seem to be way too hot.
  12. I have ran a a aquagate for over a year and never really has any issues. i noticed recently that my BIOS is saying I am getting CPU temps of 80C!! Is there possibly something wrong with the system? I have had to refill the unit once already. Could it be getting low again? Can I possibly damage my system running at this temp?

  13. Well, the case that the company mentioned above is still using this case. So whats the deal on it? Supposedly Cooler Master allows them to use it.
  14. ....I just saw a Pre-Built PC company called SavRow that Cooler Master lets use these cases. They are insane! Whole cases is chrome finished inside and out! C'mon Cooler Master. You got to release something like that!!
  15. Anyone remember this nice case? Man I miss the good stuff like this! The fan could be removed for 3 more drives as well on the bottom. I wish Cooler Master would make another one with a window this time! That case was to die for! http://www.neoseeker.com/resourcelink.html?rlid=50436
  16. Is there any sort of ETA on this? I know its a shot in the dark but worth a try? Of course my question also is there going to be a purchase the bezel for us that already have one? Again I hope its not going totally black tho...there will be an option still?
  17. Yeah Its a PC-75. I have had it for years. Very nice case, just a little dinged up from a recent move. I actually considered just getting a new one, but a change of scenery would be nice.
  18. Decisions decisions.... I officially cannot make up my mind here. I like the ease of working with a mid tower, but I like the room in the full tower... I am currently using a Lian-LI full tower case that I am replacing. I know everyone is going to tell me the Stacker I just know it... I just wish the Stacker was soild aluminum like the 730 and alot others. Thats my only drawback. I am using a SLI setup so the mid tower might be a bit cramped...
  19. Any news on this? I did a dearch on this, but found nothing...
  20. Does it actually help? I dont see many people using it who have posted their rigs here, so thats why I asked.
  21. My question is will it fit into the top PSU bay on the stacker? I know I can use the bottom, but was just curious. This is a fairly large PSU, and I know some Cooler Master cases have problems with particular PSU's The deminsions of the PSU is 150 mm (W) x 86 mm (H) x 180 mm (D) Also will this PSU fit into the Praetorian 730? Thanks for the help. Now should I bother waiting for the Stacker 810...hmmm
  22. Will replacement inner panels be made available rather easy if they arrive damaged? I am thinking of using this case , but just want to cover my bases.
  23. I personally hate it. One wrong hand movment and its dents all around for everyone. Does the inside panel of the Praetorian 730 bend easily? Is it flimsy or very durable? I would have liked this case even more if it would have had a solid finish like the old Wavemaster.
  24. They fixed ther cold bug if that is what you mean, or is that not what you are talking about? Do you think the aquagate could handle it tho at least matching or a little better than the defaul VGA coolers??
