The true blue flame overclock.net case - Page 9

post #81 of 98
Thread Starter 
Jeez, out of 80 posts 70 posts state: $900 for a paint job? Well, people pay a quality whore just to get a decent blowjob, at least this case is going to last him..forever! Plus, this is a special edition without the grille in the front, so beat it, EAT made a great investment, and I am going to suggest that you do not touch one bit of that case but, atleast buy a regular stacker or a Lian Li for 250, and have fun on it, let this thing be your trophy!

Yeah...so does it fly or assemble your parts itself for 900 ?
That's just outrageous for a case period...

Except for CD's cases, which will cost somewhere near that when they are hand built with custom WC'ing built in. Even then they are cheaper.

thanks again for all the warm posts, this is my trophy! For all those that think its a waste of money, I am glad you didnt purchase one it would be wasted on you. Also for those that think they can do it better ....prove it! I have had enough of all the trash talk. Ill be starting a work log as soon as the phase change paint shows up. I also will monitor the posts here but am finding it increasingly more difficult to post for all those haters.

Improvements for this case:
- Side Panel: If you're going to have a side panel, why block the view with fans? If you want improved airflow, why the window? This part was clearly not thought out.

- Removable Motherboard Tray: You're telling me CM expects us to buy a case for ~$1k and the motherboard try is not removable? It would be nice if it did since it makes this a whole lot easier to work on.

- Fans: So they offer a sidebracket for 4 extra fans for the side, yet they don't give you 4 fans to fill the bracket. Where is the $1k going?

- Front Door: What's the point of having an open front end if the painted front door thing is completely solid? Again, not thought out.

- Interior Paint: Why isn't the interior painted? Again, where is the $1k going if you get a window, th exterior is painted but the interior is not?

- Design: This case is basically the standard 830 stacker with a different paint job. What makes this particular case worth $500 more than the unpainted version?

Then again, it's your money. If you're happy with the case I have nothing to say.

The man knows what he wants! Surely it's a nice paint job and it does afford him "I have one, you don't" rights especially considering there won't be an infinite number of these made.

Congrats on the purchase. Now make with some pics or something!

Honestly guys, each person's computer says something about them. If you choose to spend money on a new CPU/GPU/etc, then you're saying you're practical. If you decide to spend it on looks (Modding, Flashy case, etc) then you're saying you want people to notice your hobby. If you spend it on both, then you have a lot of money and want to have an over all great computer.

At least EAT didn't go with the "Ricer" approach ($900 on case, $500 on Hardware).

I personally can't justify spending that much money on a Case that I personally didn't Mod. It seems to me that anything that needs being done (Painting included) needs being done right. And Hey, I can give my self a lifetime warranty
