Don't worry, you're good thumb.gif I just don't want a flame war started in my log about Caselabs cases, not saying anyone would do that though.

Naw... everyone is entitled to their opinions... it's all good. Regardless of the case - it's what you do with it that matters most. CL definitely isn't for everyone (for one thing you need some pretty deep pockets or it's a waste). I've seen many incredible builds in the TJ07 which I love. I still won't ever buy another Silverstone case again (because I feel the same about them as deafboy does about CL) but that doesn't stop me from drooling over some of the very, very sexy rigs people have built in them. The inspiration for this build being first and foremost among those. biggrin.gif

Jeff, did you have to sand down some areas to make it fit (remove some powder coating)? Just curious if you're selling it whole or in parts smile.gif

You do have a very good point! That's the way some people feel about this case, they hate Apple but they love the build!

I haven't had to sand down anything which is nice. There are just some minor things that need to be done to the case to complete it like making the holes on the top for the screws for the rad a bit larger, adding the 5.25in bay cover, some touch up paint. And yes, I will be selling the whole case, but not the components in it thumb.gif Here's the quote from an earlier post about what is included when you purchase the case:
Quote:
I will be selling the case. The stuff that will be included with the case is:

-both radiators and fans for the radiators
-rear case fans
-fan controller
-Corsair TX-850 Power Supply

My asking price is $600. This may seem like a lot to some of you guys but I have a LOT of hours into this case. The powder on this case alone is $150. So, let's do the math:

$50 (original price of case)
$150 (powder coating)
$125 (power supply)
$150 (radiators)
$50 (fans)
$75 (labor)

Total: $600 which I think is completely fair. Plus, you get a free fan controller.

*EDIT* Do you think I would attract more attention if I sold my X79 system with the case? That way, I could get more money for the computer and spend some more on my Little Devil case.

You could 'float a trial balloon' with it as a complete system... then if you don't get takers, or if people in that thread are asking you if you're willing to part it out... change to pricing each piece independently.

As far as I'm concerned - I think more people are going to be interested in a single piece of hardware. However, there might be someone that's been following your build, and is looking to get a new rig - but not wanting/able to build from the ground up - that would jump at the opportunity.

I will do that then! Thanks!

I'm a bit worried now about the added thickness... that amount you stated is higher than what I was quoted when I went in. With my case largely being friction fit I don't have much room for error, lol. 2-3mm is huge.

Yah... idk man. I guess it gives a little more "snug" fit lol. You could always get a section that has something that is friction fit and have it powder coated and then test it to see if it will work?

Jeffinslaw

Or you could have the areas that are supposed to fit together (provided they are hidden from view) masked off or sanded down afterward. I agree though that 2mm seems excessive... that's like another whole sheet of alu in many cases.

Well the pieces that are friction fit are the big pieces, lol, so at that point I might as well just get it all done. 1/10th of an inch is just more than I was expecting.
