Ok new problem here. Recently I received the new replacement USB cable from Linus. The problem now is that one of the USB port at the front of the case have no power. How do I know? Well, if I were to take a USB flash drive and place it to the first USB port, then it'll light up and work. If I place it in the second USB port, which is in between the first USB port and the ESATA port, then there is no power. Nothing is turned on. Can someone tell me what's going on and how I can fix it? Thx!

Try taking off the front panel, get a small screw driver and push down the usb connector more securely.

Double-check and make sure the cable for the front USB ports is properly plugged into the header on the motherboard.

You're right! That absolutely did the trick! Now there's power going to both USB ports. I actually got this fixed a couple of days ago, but I forgot to update this thread. Thx again for the tip!

Just got my case from NCIX and the even supplied a new USB header and instructions on how to change it. Good work NCIX! As for the "smell", there is a bit of a funky smell (the sound dampening material), but it isnt that bad. Nice case, feels solid, and that material is heavy. Only down fall is that the top of mine had a few blemishes and very light scrathes.

Wow! Nice case. I was expecting price in 200+ range, but for 110 it was great deal while it lasted.

If you refresh and look quickly, it will say the ETA is 8-11-2010. Very soon then. Personally I'm gonna wait for the XL.
