What happened? The Torrent PC case recently released by Fractal Design has been well received, but the company has warned owners to disconnect the existing fan hub immediately after reports of a possible short circuit.
Mid-Tower Torrent $190 has been praised by several review sites for its low noise, abundant airflow, amazing thermal performance, award-winning results, and high scores.

"We are committed to the quality of our products and the fan of the Nexus 9P Slim. The torrent hub does not meet the standards our customers expect of us." “Our development team tirelessly designs and produces versions and has been updated that they will address these issues as soon as possible.” There are instructions on how to do this, though it only involves disconnecting each fan, removing the three screws, and releasing the cable holder zipper.

The company has stopped selling torrents until the update. The fan hub can be included. While the case can still be used without a hub, it says Fractal works with retail partners to make sure owners who don't want to wait for a replacement can get a quick and easy refund.
