There is a circuit board attached to the back of the Aquareo faceplate. If I can get it off without damage, then this is a possibility. Otherwise I'll have to settle for painting it.

I have been looking for a good color match but I haven't found anything I'm happy with so far. Even if I go the powder-coat route, I'll still need something for the screw heads.

Update: Rust-oleum - 7754 Anodized Bronze is looking pretty close.

Do NOT attempt to paint the faceplate with electronics attached. The faceplate comes off. There's an adhesive that connects the factory faceplate on the Aquaero to the pcb. Use an exacto knife to gently, GENTLY get between the two and pry the faceplate off.

^^ This. The faceplate is glued but it comes off easily and then you painted it.

I thought today was going to be good day. I open my CaseLabs s3 from PPCs. It was missing the entire top. I don't know how that happen. Its suppose to come with a 36 extended top but it didn't come with a top at all.

Hey guys, . . . . . Need some feedback . .


I was looking at a white SM8 in the marketplace with the intention of migrating my Switch 810 build into it.

(RIVE with a 3930 and tri-fire matrix 7970 Platinums)

I need to find a new case for that build as I need to harvest the black Bitspower fittings and the Koolance bay res with dual 35X pumps to go into the Reverse ATX Phantom I modded to migrate my daily driver pc into.

As it turns out, I wasn't getting a warm feeling about the integrity of the seller's plans to actually sell it, so I figured maybe it would be well worth the wait again, andjust order a new Caselabs.

Then of course I realized that if I'm going to have to wait, I might as well get something that would give me more flexibility with what I might want to change / upgrade. . . . . .

Yep, chiller capable for sure.

So I'm looking at another TH10A . . . .

The one I have is white / reverse atx.

I was thinking of getting a gunmetal / standard atx.

My thought was to get all the same options and accessories as I have in the white one, in the new gunmetal one, and then I could create a complimentary pair of two-tone TH10As.

Do you think it would look nice, or just tacky?

I guess I could order all the extras and accessories I was planning to get for it first, and see how they look in my white one and proceed from there.


Too many things to build, and so little time to build 'em . . . .

The extended top cover for the S3 comes in a second box when assembled. I would check with PPC if you don't have a second box. It measures at 16" x 16" x 3".

Yeah I only got one box. I sent PPCs a message. Unfortunately they're close for the day so I hope to hear back from them tomorrow. Hopefully this is the case since I would like to start assembling my build together asap lol

From handling the case though. This has to be the best case I've ever had in my possession. I think my pc has finally found its permanent home.
