Meh. I'm confident Charles will find another way. That's what this entire project was about from beginning to end for him. And when he gets it worked out, I've got my down payment ready.

Personally I think that is a great looking case. Very impressed after reading all the details and realizing all the thought and engineering that went into it. As far as the $1200 / $1600+ price tag goes, well that is for the invisible hand to determine. We will see if the 499 cases at that price meet the market equilibrium. If not he will have to lower his price until enough orders are met. That of course would be egg on the face. Personally I do not think there will be any issue at the set price point. Could I buy one of these cases? Absolutely. Would I buy one? Most likely not. I have my priorities and this is not one of them. Besides, I like doing my own mods.

I think some people need to look at what went into this case. For example, look at the mobo tray. A piece of aluminum plate roughly that size would cost close to $100 (not bulk). That is just raw material. Now machine that piece into something and the worth increases greatly. This goes for much of the craftsmanship in the case.

It would be refreshing to get some input from some of the talented artisans in this forum on what it takes to design and craft something of this nature. Some people need to realize you're not just purchasing a bunch of mass produced parts assembled; you're purchasing a creation assembled on a much smaller scale. I think a lot of people are just upset because its priced out of their range. News flash, this case is not for everyone.

Modding is all about doing it yourself. This is a beautiful case, but it's just a consumer product for people without any imagination.

I have a great imagination, I just don't have the skills necessary to get those thoughts and idea onto paper and into a final product.

Your statement also doesn't apply to just a Ferrari, but to any vehicle. You are essentially saying that if you didn't make it yourself, you have no imagination. Which is completely false, it is more of an issue with ability and resources than anything.

Derp, if it were blind-tapped you wouldn't need a backplate because there would be no holes on the other side of the tray, derp.

Which is why I am asking, if they are truly blind-tapped, why does it need a backplate to slide into like that? Why not just leave it bare on the backside and have a 1-piece tray. My guess is because it's not truly blind-tapped, but through-tapped and has a backplate covering it. If it's mounted with blind taps to the backplate and the 1/4 tray isn't blind-tapped for the mobo tray holes, that would make sense. If the 1/4 tray is blind-tapped for the mobo holes, why have a backplate covering that up? Show it off that you have stuff mounted to one side and no holes in the other side.

Blind-tapping involves drilling a hole usually around 1/16 deeper than needed for the tap and tapping the required depth, never breaking through the backside of the material. It takes a lot of time and precision and special tools to do this.

I'm also curious what the screws are holding against for the reservoir holder. I would imagine an entire channel cut out the width of the screw head (or bolt or whatever it mounts to on the other side) and then a through cut the width of the screw threading. Again, you would need the backplate to cover up holes in the tray.



Derp, look at the photo more closely. The mobo tray is solid. There is a large section machined out of the mobo tray and replaced with another piece for the res mount. I'm assuming the slot you see for the res mount is a dovetail dado or something similar. I would have done it differently but they chose to do it the way they did. So there is no "back plate" Derp

I think I'll stick with my new CaseLabs Magnum T10 at only about half the price, with options.

The MKII does give me a few ideas for modding, though.

Besides, they've most likely already been sold out, so don't get too excited.
