Custom Orders Have Been Reopened - Jan 6th - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Quick question, when you say "custom", you don't mean custom fab, right?

For example if I wanted a Mercury S8 case but with only the height of a Mercury S5, that's a whole different ballgame, right?

EDIT: Some search has basically confirmed what I want is the (unfortunately) discontinued Mercury S8S

We all want an S8 the height of an S5, so we can place a full window on top and show off our beautiful gear up close and personal.

It's already been done, CaseLabs made a few in 2015 called them the S8 short or S8S.


I have one, it's the most perfect case CL ever designed and produced, only my opinion of course.


And it uses the same S8 pedestal if you want to watercool in the basement.


Our only hope is to look forward at new horizontal E-ATX 8-slot cases coming out in the future also with short form factors.


To me, the S8S is NOT short its ideal.


The S8S should have been called the S8.


The S8 should have been called the S8E, E for "extended". But I don't make the rules. tongue.gif

Disappointing. I actually made a thread about this a while ago.
The resellers lack many options like reverse-ATX. And now even caselabs doesn't offer it anymore. One of the main selling points (and justifications for the very high price) was the the incredible amount of customisation, which is now lacking.

And I'm probably going to be hated for making the comparison with Apple:
Less choice. More (expensive) accessories.

We're being very conservative about the options offered. We don't want to keep opening and closing special orders. Those that made up less than 5% of orders in the past have been dropped (for now). Our biggest concern is to bring the lead times with what we currently offer, down. Once that's done, we can look at adding/restoring other options.

This is good news! I look forward to the S8 I ordered late November. I shall go back to obsessively clicking "Refresh" on my browser in the order status page instead of working or eating or grooming.

Well, let me know if you ever offer the S8S for S5 that's wide enough for an ATX mobo because I'm going to be in the market for that.

No reverse-ATX white STH10 available now. I guess I'll have to wait a bit more.
As xioros stated, resellers offers little to no customisation and if I'm going to shell out nearly 1k on a case, I really want this customisation.

But I can understand the company POW POV, to reduce lead time and make things more fluid for a majority of customers.

[edit] Next time, i'll be proof-reading
