Same prices and fewer choices
We are exploring long term solutions - it's just a little more complicated than simply finding a distributor
As for the 900d I can't really comment, since no one has seen one. I think George and his team did a great job. I'm guessing it's still very similar to the 800D in build quality and construction through. It's still a stamped out steel consumer case, albeit a good one. I think ours is on a whole different level and I believe most of our customers would agree.
long term solutions ? ... open a factory in europe . easy
it really depends , CaseLab = built for WC
but then again , the Corsair got aesthetics
... ill go for the CaseLab JUST because its built for Watercooling in mind , so they got the "holes" . spacing , and all that stuff taken care of , Corsair got a great case , 900D , BUT that case is for the masses , CaseLab on the other hand , looks plain but are more on the custom side
im waiting on my Mercury i won in the "name the case" contest , ill soon taste the CaseLab glory
