How does Cubitek/Fractal Design get their cases built by Lian Li?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I know that Cubitek (Tank series) & Fractal Design (Array series) get their cases built by Lian Li, so do you think I can somehow get in contact with them (or any other builder like Cooler Master or whatever) and get them to build the case for me? Maybe 100 units which I can sell to guys here on OCN or any other forum?

I know how "hot" the A05N was so how about a A05FNX?
Maybe this will turn into a successful business like Case Labs and Little Devil, and before you start talking about the costs, I would like to say that this case will simply be a "length extension" & "motherboard flip" of the A05FN.

A05 style:
A05FN case
"flip" the motherboard tray
make it "longer"

Proposed layout (A05 style):
2x 5.25 bays
Inverted ATX
3x 120mm top
3x 120mm bottom
1x 120mm front
1x 120mm back
8 expansion slots
No door
PSU in front like A05N

I think I'm on to something here... a $100-125 price tag (for A05 style) will make it a worthy competitor with cases from Corsair, Silverstone, Fractal, Cooler Master and Lian Li themselves?

Now all I need to do is this learn how to use sketchup...

EDIT 1: Ditching V1200 proposal, but the A05 proposal can really shift case design into a whole another dimension...

EDIT 2: Heres proof that this isn't vaporware...


EDIT 3: Case dimensions:
(W) 210mm x (H) 385mm x (D) 625mm - Width & Height same as A05FN, added 125mm more for the depth.

EDIT 4: Getting my case made from here:
