Last Two-tone run: July 21, 2016 to July 31, 2016 - Page 19

Firstly, the color option window is from April 22 to May 2nd. You have over a week to get your order in.
Secondly, the color option will include other selections ... I expect to see at least 'two-tone'
Thirdly, there is a text box that you can enter your colors by parts.
Fourthly, I think the valid colors are gunmetal, black or white.

Personally, I will place my order and then send CaseLabs an email with the order number and an explicit list of parts and selected color. Don't forget to include color selections for standard parts (ie SSD holder).

Edit: What is the term for someone posting while you are typing? At least my info isn't wrong.

You can spec color of each and every part. Only thing you can't ask for is a single part to be different colors on either side wink.gif

The only part I think CL should consider making two colors is the rear chassis. I love my new TH10A. It is Gunmetal on the sides and the top and white inside. Unfortunately, that means white in the back. That is the one part I think should be painted two different colors (and I would pay for it because there is more labor involved.

At least it faces the wall? It still looks cool.

Just for the heck of it, how 'bout getting a Gunmetal motherboard tray? You'd have the opposite thing then, Gunmetal in the white interior of the case, but no white on the outside of the case... headscratch.gif

There would still be white on the outside since the motherboard slides into the rear chassis which includes the PSU openings, fan holes and other miscellaneous features.

Someone have a list of all the parts that make the interior on the SMA8? I tried to figure it out myself but I just have a basic list. I was hoping there was a "drop in" replacement you could buy in the primer grey. Would be nice to be able to paint one Nvidia green and swap it into a gunmetal grey exterior. I think I might just go gunmetal grey exterior and white interior since white, black, gunmetal are the three options.

At least it faces the wall? It still looks cool.

As a note, their cases are not painted. They powder coat their parts, and the only way to ensure a smooth and consistent finish that meets their high quality control standards is to spray a single colour per part.

I suspect you could at least theoretically spray a colour in each side but how would you prevent Oreo scattered colour effects, not to mention an insane increase in the amount of panels that would be rejected simply because of the fact over spray could wind up hitting several other parts.

A single colour works wonders when your goal is to efficiently product many parts of the same colour because if it's all black (gunmetal, or white) then not only can you safely send a great deal of parts down the line back to back but it also means no time wasted on tearing down and cleaning lines (it has been mentioned before in the past changing colours is at least 45 minutes of downtime, and you might as well double that to include returning to the original or main colour).

Or in short, with the methods CaseLabs uses to get a durable, great looking finish it's rather difficult (I'd say impossible in a mass production acenario) to maintain high control over a product's quality and put out a large amount of parts if you're having stop on a regular basis to keep everything tidy so stray powder doesn't wind up on the next panel and ruins it's finish.

Could it be done by a shop specializing in custom one offs? Potentially, but there's still the question of how on earth do you get a smooth consistent finish when you're talking about spraying two different colours onto one piece - the areas where things overlap wouldn't be pretty or smooth I suspect.

Yes, indeed they are. I typed "pained" late at night. That's what I get when I am on this board at all hours....Thanks for reminding me. Either way, they look and work so well.
