I haven't even really started in on it. I have a basic setup running in it while I do some custom metal work and get all of my WC gear purchased. I'm almost there though, within a few weeks I'll have her up and running.

Just started on pre-assembly yesterday now that classes are over. Ran into my first big gripes though.

#1) The hard drive mount on the PSU side is next to impossible to use traditional fan dampening methods inside. There's just no room. I used my old school ghetto ziptie/rubber washer method, and that barely fit.

#2) This one is a huge one for me and i'm VERY angry with it. My Swiftech MCR320's DO NOT fit in the upper radiator areas width-wise. They hit the recesses that the top covers are screwed into, so I can't mount them flush to the radiator screw area. To say I was pissed about this would be an understatement, especially since I was using long screws and didn't notice it until the rad got close to flush. One of my brand new rads has a nice big dent and missing paint on the sides now thanks to this.

I'm very sorry you ran into a problem with mounting your radiator We'll certainly look into both issues, but I want to understand the radiator problem. This is the first time I've heard of anything and we have quite a few in use. Would it be possible to PM me with a picture? We're just getting ready to release the second revision to the chassis top. This one should allow top mounted rads with widely spaced barbs. We also deleted the 6-32 fasteners, since they're no longer needed which will provide a little better side clearance for rads.

Thank you

If his issue is genuine i think you should issue him a new case without the problem and possibly even replace his rad. as Case Labs cases do cost the premium so only great service is expected

Let's understand the problem first, ok?

First off, I want to apologize to Jim for my prior post. I was angry and it obviously showed. It's not the way I usually handle things like this. I had final exams this week and I'm just at the breaking point in stress level lol. That post was poor behavior on my part.

That said, I don't expect any kind of replacement radiator from Jim. That's not his fault. I would have noticed it if I was mounting the rad with fans in the exhaust config, but since I was mounting for push/intake, there just wasn't any warning signs until it was too late. I have seen many build logs with this case and I never saw any reason to believe this would happen. The overlap is not much at all. It's just barely enough to keep the rad from mounting flush without doing damage to the rad's exterior.

I'm working with Jim privately in this matter and as I should have expected he sent me a PM right away to get the whole story.

I stand by my original thoughts on this case. It's a great product. This problem may even be due to manufacturing differences in Swiftech's rads. As I said it's barely too wide.

Anyways, apologies again for the previous post.

No problem - I understand those kinds of pressures One way or the other, we'll get it worked out.

Thanks,
