    That, or you assembled it in the wrong order or missed something in the process, making the screw go further in than it should. You don't need to apply any force for this to happen, as a matter of fact, it will take less effort to do this than to actually tight the screw.

    You can RMA it, but I really doubt they're gonna fix it for free.
    Yes, is caused by a screw and no, I didn't miss something in the process. But if you say that is easier to do this kind of damage than screwing the screws then is poor design. I will RMA it and let you guys know how it ends, and also email them my resume. Thanks for the answers.
    Cheers.

    It's not poor design. It only happens when you don't know what you're doing or not paying enough attention. That should NOT happen unless you run the screw down more than it is supposed to go, for whatever reason.
    Good luck on the RMA and job application.

    It didn't came like this from the factory. You somehow messed it up by obviously doing something wrong, now it's damaged. Suck it up, RMA it and pay for the repair. Live and learn.

    Look I don't have time to explain how fatigue (mechanical and thermal) wear, elasto plastic deformation, probability of defective units in big stocks, passive/active security systems and product design and engineering work. I don't have something to learn here, I don't have to pay and I don't have to suck it up. All your arguments are invalid. If you want to learn something and understand why they are invalid go and read some book about what I described above if you are not, fine but stop soil my topic.
    Cheers.

    Ok, I'm gonna tell you exactly what happened so you can get a clue. You opened up the back cover, removed some screws and in the process of putting it back together, you tried to tighten a screw that was supposed to be tightened with the back cover ON, before doing so. The screw went further in than it should, making a bulge in the chassis. Then you put the back cover on, realized you had a screw blocking up one of the holes, pulled the cover off, removed the screw and assembled it back together, then noticing that ugly bulge in the chassis. This has nothing to do with fatigue, bad design and whatnot, but lack of attention when putting all the stuff back together. Flexing your knowledge in the subject here ain't gonna fix the problem or pass the blame to someone else, and let's be honest here, by knowing so much about all that you mentioned, you should know better that this was caused by a screw trying to poke through the plastic. Not rocket science!

    Sh*t happens man, don't sweat. It could be a lot worse. You're probably trying to vent your frustration by blaming it on "bad design" or whatever... I get that, but listen, don't let that hurt your ego. It could happen to anyone here. Fix the problem and move on. You can probably buy a new front chassis on Aliexpress and replace it yourself for cheap. But pay attention next time so you don't end up with two damaged chassis on your desk. heh

    Jokes aside, good luck on the RMA and keep us updated. Cheers
