Is my HAF X (shipping damage) doomed?

I took off work and waited until 5PM just for UPS to delivery my Blue Edition HAF X only to discover this:







The back plate in unsecured at that corner. The floor of the mesh cutout is pushed inwards and the edge is warped - meaning PSU cannot be mounted in the case's current state.

Think I can somehow hammer everything back into place?

I ordered from Newegg, shipped through UPS. I'd hate to go through RMA process unless PSU is totally un-mountable but if I have to I will. Newegg better give me a partial refund for this....

I'd recommend contacting newegg and see how they'll handle it.If they'll please you with free exchange, then just wait.If you are unhappy with their solution, then, it's hammer time!

RMA'd and already on the way back to Newegg. No cost to me + CSR saw I was buying other PC parts and tossed in next day shipping on replacement case to get my build on.

Even if they gave me a partial refund, I don't think I could've bared knowing that my setup was anything less than perfect. RMA FTW!
