@werds: Thanks! Haha.

@SirBash: Thanks to you too! I'm going to be mounting 2xTA120.3 at the top of the case with push fans. I have 2 shrouds but I'm not sure if they're going to fit. I'll keep you updated though for sure.

Pictures are going to have to be postponed for a bit.

I guess the holes to attach the fans are 6/32 which is too small for my GTs. My screws are 1/16 which are too fat for the holes. I would use smaller screws but they go right through my GTs.

I don't really want to do any drilling but if I have to I guess I will. Does anyone know any alternatives to this?

I'll still be posting SSD mount pictures in a few minutes!

Subbed! No pressure being the first build posted with this case! I'm currently planning out a new build myself and was leaning towards an 800D or HAF, but I might have to check out this one pending your experiences.

Good luck!

Get this. I would never ever buy another case like that after purchasing this. I can almost guarantee you it won't break. It hasn't scratched yet, and I tried on a non visible area and it's just incredibly built.

Get it now! Haha.

I'll keep you posted .

Alright well I just spoke with Jim at Case Labs and apparently the holes for the fans (at least for the mesh part) are slightly smaller than traditional fan screws. This was done to allow for dust filters and other types of modding where the hole can be opened up if necessary but wouldn't be too big. Obviously you can't make a hole smaller so they were being safe here.

Unfortunately for me, I do not own a drill (blah blah) and can't open these holes more. I have to decide what I wanna do here but can't progress further until this problem is solved. I have 14 120mm fans and 3x40mm fans that need to be inserted so I'm going to need to do a lot of researching here to figure this one out.

Fortunately, I could mount the SSDs so here are a few pictures of them in the flex bay! Enjoy!

First one, not screwed:



Please tell me what kind of awesome case manufacturer actually creates a small hole where the screwdriver can go in and screw it in? Blasphemy!





Second one getting ready for installation:





Both installed:













Had to take off the flex bay with the fan mounting in order to mount the SSD bay into the flex mount. Unfortunately this is when I realized the fan would not install without modification.





I didn't like the provided silver screws so I painted them black.



With the black screws in:



Trying to show the awesomeness of Case Labs by sending shock mounts!



Fully installed into the flex bay...I think, lol:







Put the front back on:



Got the feet installed!



That's all I've got for now! I really need to figure something out so I can show you all what it looks like with the fans installed!

Anyone got any suggestions, drill-less?

Looks like Mountain Mods finally has some competition in the boutique case market. That case looks fantastic, and is cheaper than mountain mods. How many rads do you plan to install?

I believe someone else asked that but I will be putting 2x360mm radiators up top.

I am still planning the loop but with the case here it makes it a bit easier to judge.

this case also seems a little more finished than mountain mods cases. No need for hundreds upon hundreds of $ in accessories to make it look good. Would definitely not trade my UFO of it tho. Interested to see how this turns out.
