Hey guys, just picked up my first Area 51 (not sure if I’m going to do a retro or new build) and unfortunately the front and top of the case got destroyed in shipping. Anyone have any spares they’d be interested in selling? The rest of the case is in great shape and the internals are solid (790sli, e8400, liquid cooled)

Hate to say it but I would file a shipping claim and try to buy a new case.

On the bright side, you can save the good plastic parts, and maybe experiment on the bare metal case, such as cutting out spots for custom fan mounts or liquid cooling radiator.
Yeah, I filled a claim with fedex. Luckily all the ports and lights still work! I think I’m going to have a front panel redone out of aluminum. Just throwing some ideas around at the moment
