Post the Gift of gab
I put this here because it concerns my case.

Once again I put my verbal bargaining skills to work, like I did with AT&T, to Microcenter.
I am 11 days past my 30 day return window. I bought my Level 10 GT from them and was wanting the Corsair 800D. But would have to sell my level 10 for whatever I could get for it then pay full price for a new 800D.
Not anymore.
After talking to the Manager for 10 mins or so, and it was a girl ... :mrgreen: I talked her into letting me exchange it for the 800D. I was going on and on and had sugar running off my lips by the time it was over. So...needless to say, a new 800D...even swap. They cost the same. :dance:

I REALLY like that series of case, however I feel it's bigger than it needs to be. So whenever I build my next PC (Yes, I do build PCs from time to time). I will buy this http://www.corsair.com/cases/obsidian-s ... -650d.html

Yep it is unless you are gonna cram a bunch of WC HW in it. From past experience it's a piss poor air cooling case but I like the room. However that 650D is a nice case Luke. I looked it over a few days ago at Microcenter when they got a few in. Quite roomy for a mid-size and good cable management from what I saw. And I heard it cools much better then it's big brother. I almost considered it but was afraid I would regret it as far as size. Not that it's small by any means, just not big like I like em. I like massive cases. I guess cause I live in Texas?
They didn't even look at the level 10 I returned. I even shopped a while and went back to get my 800D from behind the return counter and they still had not opened it to check it. They should check things like that when people return them. I could have beat it with a hammer for all they know. :shock:

lol...as a matter of fact, they already have it. As well as my name and address. One of those places that takes your name, number etc when you buy from them.
They had already sold it as open box item. So I had to order another receiver from Logitech. 10 bucks, but I wasn't gonna whine about $10 for a $100 mouse.
