Actually I own the same case and exactly the same happened to me as well.
The shop concluded it was a production error as there is simply too much pressure on the glass from the screws.
They tested this by attempting to open one themselves and obviously it did not go well.

As they wanted to still charge me 150 EUR to switch all to a new case, I am now the proud owner of a well ventilated, 3-side case :rofl:

I have the following case:

Fortunately it was very well packaged.

Also fortunately not planning on moving for years.

Jesus :sweat_smile:
So basically they admitted to selling you a bad case, but still wanted to charge you for fixing a problem that shouldn’t be yours to begin with?
I hope they at least refunded you that case?

I hoped so too, but no they didn’t.

Maybe I’m an idiot like this guy, but I shudder at the thought of going to my local computer store and lying about something they sold me breaking during shipping, when I know it was my fault. I’ve had mostly good experiences with the computer stores in my neighbourhood, whenever something was wrong with stuff they sold me, they never made an issue and replaced it no questions asked.

Defrauding them would just feel wrong and if they caught me doing something like that I’d want to die of embarrassment, and would never set foot into that store again. :man_shrugging:t3:

On the other hand, I would not use a tempered glass PC case. :smiley:

HERESY

Why is that? Doesn’t acrylic give you enough of a view? :grin: (I have one of each, btw) :smiley_cat:

My PC cases are in another room. I run cables through the wall. The quietest setup ever, even though I have six large fans, running constantly at full rpm. CPU temp rarely above 35°C.

Production error = return for a refund.

€150 less the refund for the original case?

1 Like

No the 150 is not less the original case price.
But I will get a new case someday.
Currently it is not bothering me enough.
My CPU water cooling is also due for replacement due to it having air in it and it being a closed loop.

Please tell me you’re gonna buy your stuff elsewhere at least? :sweat_smile:

Just out of curiosity, was it one of our big online sellers, or a local store?
Just trying to make sure I don’t order parts there myself :upside_down_face:

Yep one of the big Belgian online shops.
The only one with a PC builder on the website.
