CASELABS!!!- RELEASE A CASE WHERE THE GPU 'HANGS' FROM THE TOP OF THE CASE!! (VERTICAL GPU CASE) PPLLEEAASSEE

I been told Silverstone owns the patent on this design and it has to be licensed out. sounds crazy but that's how the patent system works (or its broken).

Yes, exactly. I don't know why people still seems unaware of this. It's not like it happened yesterday, but like circa 10 years ago.

On a more personal note my case is inbound wheee.gif Just checked e-mail and I see CL/Fedex shipping notification. I performed Mayan Ritual Dance and... now it rains outside. tongue.gif With customs and stuff I hope for first week of June delivery. In all honesty nothing better to energize a man after he just woke up. I don't really need breakfast anymore! Chuffed!

I think I read somewhere that that patent is just expiring...Can point where but it is in the back of my mind...We might start to see more cases like that...

Yeah, over on [H], the rep said that the patent expired (for North America iirc).

Going from memory it just did but I don't have proof but I recall the same But case labs is about innovation. So I don't know if they will use it. I would love an m8 with it.
however I don't want my pcie at the top. I want all my cords on the bottom (reverse what Silverstone does) imo cable management is far better

I agree about the innovation part, but frankly last thing smaller company needs is potential patent troll. If patent is about to expire great, if not I think there is enough room for some funky and creative thinking. I would love to see big case with horizontal motherboard tray, with 10-15 slots with mounting points above the usual PCI height. No I don't do crypto currencies. I don't need mining rig. But moving up for example RAID cards with raisers, away from motherboard would be awesome option to have. I know CL builds are mostly about WC VGAs and not much else. Well I rarely fit into any category. biggrin.gif

Biggest problem with current motherboards is that you have plenty of slots which cannot be used most of the times - obvious one is VGAs covering 2-3 slots which makes motherboard close to useless. With cards mounted on risers, voilà you have now access to blocked slots. Look at awesome Asus X99 WS-E. 7 gorgeous, fully powered slots. So what, some SLI/CF or VGA + 2 RAID controllers (with external cooling) and remaining slots are blocked. It's so sad... paying premium and getting 50% back.

Either use a DEMCiflex from PPC's that's already available like this one (Only comes in black):


Or go to their website http://www.demcifilter.com/ and have them custom make one (many color options):

As others have stated, Silverstone patented the 90 degree layout, which is why you don't see any other manufacturers utilizing it. I've heard that the patent is expired in NA, but we'd have to be 10000% sure of this before even considering making a case like this. You have to remember that we're a small, family run entity, risking a lawsuit for something like this is not ideal.

I would imagine if something like this were to come to fruition, it would be after Gemini. There's a lot of new ideas that Jim has that I can't discuss publicly regarding the Gemini platform, and I think a lot of those ideas could work well for a case like this.

As for reversing the layout (cables at the bottom) I don't think you'll ever see a mfg make something like that, especially in a watercooling case, as logistically it would be a giant pain in the ass to have to tilt your case up every time you needed to access the rear I/O panel.
