Its freakishly expensive to get a Caselabs case here in EU.
If i can get a similar like case for a few hundred euro cheaper then why is it a bad thing ?
Bad for Caselabs maybe but for me ? No.
Maybe this will drive Caselabs to a better and cheaper global distubution.
For us custumors a win/win situation.
You may all disagree but this is my point of view sorry.....
And when the only companies left are those that copy, what will your options be then?
Yes there is inspiration - ideas that get taken and modified and twisted and turned. It's just the sheer audacity, scale of it and lazyness that bugs me. This isn't inspiration - they are so lazy that when they copy they don't not even change basic things - even the look of the case. It' like you photocopied your buddies homework and just crossed his name out and put yours underneath and thought you could get away with it. Here's the thing - they could have asked about licensing the design. They could have payed a royalty in order to do this legally. They don't need to be this kind of shade in order to survive and make money. Now their shadyness is fully revealed and I hope the world sees what they truly are and acts accordingly.
Yes there will always be some unheard of company usually in China making knockoffs - just look at the fashion industry. But this is a major international company fronting as more than that, and it makes major money off the work of others.
BTW my write up on this was up last night, but you know OCN rules can't link it yadda yadda

I didnt say that, i said that i dont like to pay those extra's and if i could get something similar alot cheaper why shouldnt i be happy with that.
I am not attacking CL, just saying stuff like this happens all the time.
Also dont forget TT is going to use steel i think, not Alu.
So with CL custumors still get something extra, something more "special" (there money's worth)
your missing it, it isnt about al or steel, it isnt about taking stuff ( ill call them general items, ) IE modular design or small things, IE implementing a headphone stand,
all of that is fine, but taking a CL redoing it in steel and putting a TT logo on it, that is what we are fighting over. it is pathetic

it can be, but worth it !~
i didnt know about the ek look alike, i know that gpu blocks can only look so different -i am ok with that, but so far in watercooling we have a small handful of companies that at least try to be different, look different, ect even alphacool although i think this gen they went way way way in the wrong direction, as least they make their own stuff,
but that sli bridge....... sad,
after the oc3d article ( which they incorrectly call a th10 when it is a mix between a tx and th imo ) i have to say i am sad and normally i would love another watercooling company, the more competition the better, but i want competition not carbon copies.Edited by Mega Man - 6/3/15 at 4:00pm
