I'm assuming there are supposed to be some extra countersunk screws, but I've got a feeling I missed at least one. Especially considering I've got 11 left over, which seems like a random number.

This being my first CaseLabs, I have to say that it exceeded my every expectation. Every single piece felt so solid and high-quality, and I even had fun just going through the process of putting the whole thing together. I definitely understand why everyone says that you can't go back to normal cases after you've made the leap to CaseLabs.

Oh, and I'm fairly certain they accidentally sent me 2x 120.3 side mounts instead of just the one. I suppose opening up a support ticket is the easiest way to figure out what they want to do?

I'd just say keep it if you need it, or pay it forward and send it to someone who would like one.

Thank you for the compliments. We definitely strive for quality, which is why sometimes (especially in the biggest month in CL history) build time takes a little while to ensure that we're not going to send some junk case out where the side panels fall off. Something about magnets and how do they work, I dunno.

Here you go (sorry for the blur)





As you can see you must put the grommet on and then yes you can put a 19mm vandal switch or even a standard rocker switch like THIS

On my S5 I used that kind of rocker switch to control my LED case feets. Since they are 20mm in width, they squeeze perfectly and don't move at all. thumb.gif

Looking for a little advice - I'm planning on using a pair of either 360mm x 60mm or 80mm radiators in the top, in push-pull. I saw this sale today -

Noctua NF-P12 PWM

Are these a good choice for radiator fans? How about for case fans? Is this a decent price?

I'm so doing this! Ninja like. I have the included grommets from my ped that I'll use for this. +Rep

I can see the light at the end of the Mercury S8 tunnel!! I must be behind like 40+ pages by now biggrin.gif

Anyways... S8 orders are finally under control and lead times are back to somewhat normal. It's still 5-7 business days for black case orders across the board, but I hope to have it back down to 3-5 business days by the end of next week!

Since I can't seem to find it anywhere I've looked, even though I am sure I have seen it before, I need to ask. How thick is the aluminium on the drop-in plates? Preferably in millimeters!

I ask because I can't really seem to come up with a good position for my XSPC 270mm Photon. And yeah, it's exactly 270mm from top to bottom and I'm thinking of cramming it in between the midplate just behind the extra little window in the front and the roof. I think Kevin stated that the distance between that plate and the roof was 293mm? Hopefully it will be possible with clever use of pass throughs (yes, drilling) and fittings. We'll see if I can make it work! I just need all the data I can get before I order from the US since most of that stuff is pretty hard to come by in Europe, at least at a reasonable price!

The thickness of the frame is 2.3mm but when painted it's more like 2.7mm
