Just keep in mind that the Predator won't work fit of the box. You will need to change the fittings to 90 degrees.

What space is left with the 90 degrees fittings ?

Found Jim's original post on it.

@Case Labs Being a new poster on Overclock and new buyer of Caselab cases I would like to bring something up for your next preorder of cases. This is my first time ever preordering a pc case and I was doing a lot of research on cases before settling on the BH7 and I also read every page on this thread. It helped with my decision on cpu cooler and fans for the BH7. I asked some questions and was researching components so did not preorder until May 27th. The only thing I did not see mentioned before ordering was that there would be a wait time on colors or that the case would be shipped out depending on the date that they were ordered. I just saw the preorder date discount before May 31st on the website with the expected release of June 10th. Had I known before hand both of these requirements I would have preordered the first day I saw this case and would have chose the color shipping the fastest. I believe this information should be included on your website or your forums to help buyers make the right choices in the beginning.

I hope this does not come off as me being upset just wanted to provide some feedback for new customers like myself and your company. I have seen so many great things from other posters and reviewers about your cases and company. I have experience first hand when contacting customer service and the response was quick and helpful.

Hi all!
New poster here as well. soon a proud CaseLabs owner, Please hurry up and send my Gunmetal BH4 biggrin.gif
Have a question regarding the demciflex dustfilters (never had the need to buy dustfilters before) is there enough room on the inside of the case for the rectangular double 120mm?
The Frame looks kinda bulky.

The Preorder and release dates were posted in this thread, on the website (on the front page and on each individual chassis in the Bullet Series), and on both Twitter and Facebook.

Yes they were as I mentioned in my post but what I was trying to say is that it did not say that certain colors were shipping out first or that your case would ship out earlier if you preordered earlier than a certain date.

I get that people are excited and anxious to get their new cases - me too! I ask you all to consider this - If CaseLabs waited to do a pre order until they had large stock levels of each color, then the pre order date probably would have been in June or July instead of May. Ultimately, you'd have gotten the case roughly the same time anyway. This way, some customers get theirs sooner rather then all customers having to wait. Their build quality is worth the wait. There are always delays in product launches like this especially with a product that they allowed the community to have such an impact and voice with. Plus these are specialty colors in powder coat, not just a colored plastic run through a mold. When has a custom or specialty anything been first in line?

I know that my orange BH7 will get here when it's ready. if that means I wait an extra week or two for a specialty color, then so be it.
