    Need a new cabinet in 2-3k range.

    It's 5 years. I checked it. Just to be clear, RMA is they picking up the faulty part from my home and delivering the new one at the same time, right?

    Do motherboards get RMA'd too? Didn't know that :O. Thought it would be a carry-in and thus am reluctant. Besides, I bought the mobo a year ago. Would they still RMA it?

    Need a new cabinet in 2-3k range.

    Yup, it was. I kinda did a hack fix. Inserted a rolled multi-strand wire where the broken pin would've gone, left a part of it out just enough to touch the pin below. Seems to have fixed it and can use both the USB3.0 ports.

    Yes, just 18 instead of the expected 19. My assumption is that each USB3.0 bus has a separate Vbus (there are 2 Vbus pins in the pin diagram, diagonal to one another). The broken pin disables is not letting one port function, while the other works without an issue. Again, assumption.

    I just opened it up and clicked a photo. Here: . It has 18 pins. The 19th pin which should be, appears broken. There is a silver-ish at the bottom, as if there were a pin there before but isn't now. (I hope you can see that in the attached photograph.) It is scary, rather than tricky! Just...

    Need a new cabinet in 2-3k range.

    Thanks :). Yes, only one of them is not working. It has a single header, which supports 2 ports. My doubt about the mobo problem is because of that missing pin, which appears broken, and the pin diagram (linked to in the previous post) has the '1' pin missing making it a 20-pin port instead of...

    As promised before, here are the photos :D. Before (the iBall cabinet): The BF Merc Alpha, before inserting the new parts: BF Merc Alpha, after: And finally, in place under the desk: One thing that I'd want help with is the fact that one of my front USB 3.0 ports isn't working. I...

    Thanks :D!! Haha :). I brought back the cabinet to Mumbai over the weekend. Will assemble it today, most probably. Will post the pictures thereafter :D.

    Bought the Merc Alpha USB 3.0 today. The order finally arrived with the dealer in Pune. Will take it back to Mumbai when I go home mid-Jan, and post the photos after I set it all up :).

    Need a new cabinet in 2-3k range.

    Yup, I know it is. Reading the AnandTech review when I was suggested it first convinced me of that. And thus I ordered it when the 210 wasn't available. (My preference for 210 was because of the tool-less drives and the USB 3.0 availability.)

    Need a new cabinet in 2-3k range.

    I'm quiet uncertain about them too. They emailed the shipping date as the 19th on the day of the order. I got an email on the 19th saying it'll take 3 more days. I found a NZXT distributor in Pune. Called them up and they said they don't have 210s, and won't have them until March, 2014. But...

    Need a new cabinet in 2-3k range.

    The guy at the counter told me that the SilverStone PS03 has USB 3.0. I left the place because I had to meet up with a friend. Checked online and nowhere did it say that there was a USB 3.0 version of it available. And posted about it here. Decided to buy it if it had a USB 3.0 on the front...

    Need a new cabinet in 2-3k range.

    Yes, the same. Sorry for the typo. I don't and most probably won't use graphic cards, so won't need extra fans. Checking for reviews right now myself too.

    Any idea about the SilverStone PH03? At Prime, they suggested that.

    Need a new cabinet in 2-3k range.

    Neither available at either. Just placed the order. Shipping from their warehouse at 19th according to the email. Thanks for all the help :)!
