You could skip the screws and use J-B Weld

It's a neat idea, but the target market is clearly the DIY, modding community, and as others have pointed out, there is no need for this product in that market. You can put together a custom system with parts from Mountain Mods and have a much higher quality product.

I agree and I really wish that MM would step there game up, I was browsing there site the other day and have to say I am pretty disappointed. They have a design setup that I want very much and cannot find elsewhere (well kinda I would need to have it modded a bit), however there lack of features that are important these days really kill it frown.gif. They trying to party like its 2002, no back space to route cables is the biggest deal breaker for me.

I'm curious, who is the target audience of MountainMods cases? I remember looking at them a while back when I started my first loop about 1.5 years ago, but was left with the impression their cases really weren't all that WC friendly. High airflow to be sure, but not WC friendly.

I think they are water cooling friendly, they have lots of rad options all of there fans support rads. However the ones that do they support rads that are 120mm 30mm thick with a 15mm fan spacing. The few that have 140 support is 20mm spacing only. I think what the issue is is what I said, they were very big back in the day.

When MM was popular that is what people were using however the hobby and community has grown and changed and MM have just remained in the dark ages of our industry without updating and changing.

One could also take a trip to Home Depot and just by PVC Pipe/fittings, a sheet of acrylic, and copy the design too. Probably for $20 bucks too.

This is exactly what I meant by not WC friendly. I mean my Enthoo Primo isn't even an expensive, boutique, all aluminum case, but the options it gives for watercooling is just crazy for a mass-produced case. And it's until I really started to expand my loop that I appreciated just how well thought out some of the design choices were.

I like DIY and fabricating my own things, but this looks like junk. There is so many unnecessary fittings that will just add cost and weaken the structure. Why didn't they just use full sized rails instead? You could have easily cut some rails down to whatever length you needed or bring them to a shop and have them cut for a small fee.

Ya I think its just because MM has let there stuff fall behind they haven't updated or grown with the Community and Case Labs took over for them.
