  1. Not sure where is your "right of the mobo" position? (front location or above/behind the cage?) I would assume you mean a behind cage mount an that means the cage has to go.. you got a front/top or bottom mount for a rad
  2. Update: Okay, this problem is fixed - just today the support guy told me the standoffs fit in the original mobo backplate only! Hmm, my Gigabyte mobo (990FX) is 5 years old but I had a look in the retail box and, yes, there was another backplate and everything fits nicely now! Okay, begs the question why is there no hint in the installation instructions? This could have saved me 2 weeks hassle with elevated CPU temperatures. Now, properly installed, the LinpackXtreme benchmark's CPU temperature is down to ~50 Celsius (from ~60 Celsius b4) Perhaps there is room for communication improvements - think about it, TT!
  3. just open the side doors then pull off the whole front panel - no need to remove the dust mesh
  4. Just disable auto update in the RGB software and this problem goes away
  5. Update Thermaltake Melbourne sent me the wrong parts - the standoffs again even I requested the 4 fitting NUTS for the standoff. Now I attached 2 images First image explains (white dot) which fitting nuts (thread size ) I need Second image explains what a nut is Edit: TThey're not responding to me any more.... not unexpected but okay I get the drift - no more TT ever!
  6. This morning this TT micro update notification popped up... anyone speak chinese? What is that?
  7. Yep, thanks, will do and those standoff nuts are not on the items/parts list
  8. I have just installed this cooler - the mechanical part... a troublesome experience for me I have an AM3+ socket and find the TT cooler standoffs got no thread nuts with it? (board side!) - the particular teething problem here is that the TT standoff's thread size is a notch smaller hence the original nut is too big for the TT standoff. Why O Why are those 4 nuts not included??? I measured the original standoff thread being 3.7 mm (diameter) while the TT standoff is just 3.3mm! - see attachment (silver original one) I fixed the issue by using teflon tape, okay, but this should not happen and could have been prevented by supplying those 4 nuts! On a good note - electrically all was working right away.. see attachment and, btw, if you have the View71 or similar.. remove the top panel dust mesh since it lowers max CPU temperature by another 15 Celsius
  9. Okay, if you're in Oztralia you can get PLUS hardware here - I am not very familiar with the 'jukebox' illumination - I am on a TG version case https://www.pccasegear.com/products/38307
  10. you can download the PLUS version *software* here - all else is the same as far as I know https://ttrgbplus.thermaltake.com/
  11. Well the specifications tell - no 5.25 drive bay! (even there is a cutout in the front frame) https://www.thermaltake.com.au/Chassis/Full_Tower_/View/C_00003130/View_71_Tempered_Glass_RGB_Edition/Specification.htm
  12. I have the View71 and there are no temperature problems and it's all fan force cooling. I have 2 SSHDs inside the case ... the other are external USB3
  13. keep in mind mounting those case fans ...2 screws each (diagonally) usually fix the fan plenty.
  14. You are missing only the screws? I still have a small bag full of screws from this case where I only added 3x 200mm fans (1x front/2 top) Anyway, every hardware shop can give you those screws for a few coins..
  15. My usb3 ports had a mechanical insert issue and that could be fixed by angling/tilting the usb stick (a bit) otherwise make sure you use the usb3 socket on the mobo
  16. By the looks of it it's a 5.25 drive bay cutout (DVD player perhaps) but since it's all behind glass there is no use for it any more
  17. New View 71 owner here: Yes, it's a solid case with a few shortcomings/ flaws to mention: 1) due to the heavy weight (40 pounds) it should be on roller feet for easier moving around 2) the disk cage back cover, covering the drives' cables is a tight fit especially for HDDs once the cables are mounted. 3) the psu ATX cables might be tad short to reach its sockets at mobo's top end 4) The dust filter (bottom) is only from the backside accessible (for cleaning) - would have been much smarter to make the filter front side accessible (for apparent reason) I just assembled my View 71 a few days back and got 2x 140mm fans in the front(blowers) and top (suckers).
