I figured I'd coordinate that with a note here to get your feedback on the possible changes to reduce costs. I won't paste in the details since they're in the email:
- Omit air filters
- Change side panels to aluminum
- Omit drain port OR include it on all cases
- Include front IO on all cases (6 ppl affected)
- Switch from hot-rolled steel to electro-galvanized (EG) steel
- Refund custom colors (3 ppl affected)
Also thank you for the feedback on powdercoating. Looks like most of you (78%) voted for that.
Interested in what you have to say about the above stuff too...
Let me be the first to say that the new update is well... good? It is good to know that you at least have a solid vendor whom could make all the cases even if the price is steep (fingers crossed that someone else comes back cheaper) but at least you are not left in the water.
Fan Filters - I personally dont think that omitting the air filters will be that big of a deal I personally have ran all of my rigs without any filters and all I have to do is wipe down the blades and rad once a year and im fine. No difference at all.
Side panels to Aluminum - I have no say already have my case
Omit Drain Port - I say yes to this, I dont have the drain port (thanks for the shout out in the email I got so excited to see my name there
) and I have drained and filled my loop 3 times already with ease so I personally do not think that this is needed at all. and with the way I have my loop configured it would have been unusable.
Front IO - I dont know what I would do without it, to the people who said no the only thing I can think of is you want to put in a larger drive (3.5 inch) or some crazy GPU but this one is not for me to decide.
Steel type - I dunno I would be getting mine painted anyways
Refund Custom Colors - Be a pal and do it
At the top of the thread you will find a new poll, please this is only for the people WHO DO NOT HAVE THEIR CASE/THE PEOPLE EFFECTED BY THE PROBLEM
if you do not fall into either of these categories DO NOT VOTE!
Only vote ONE (1) yes or no per group. I dont know what else to say just dont be stupid with it (I mean that in a polite way)
