Cool, thanks man.

Caselab also confirmed with me so I may have to reconsider my options and get the STH10 instead.

Yeah, my bad. I thought you were referencing the sm8 when you had asked about the pedestal on top. Either way, if you want a horizontal rad up top you want the 120mm top.

I assume that the sma8 only has one PSU mount in the main part. Can you not run your second PSU in the pedestal at the bottom?

We really dont need more resellers, but more production capacity or that order list will just grow even longer.

Production capacity is only one facet of the business. There's a reason why we've discontinued colors for a while, and will be reigning in the amount of SKUS offered. Focus will shift into offering slightly less options while still maintaining an inventory that's both sane and appealing while improving on production efficiency.

Unless the company were to move, invest a couple of million into new machines and hire 10 more fabricators, what we've been doing wouldn't work any longer. All chassis are fabricated by people utilizing various machines, not giant stamping machines in a factory.

Jim and Kevin both know what they're doing, and having more resellers won't be an issue, it will make our offerings more available to people. Europe is the biggest challenge thanks to their insane VAT+customs fees. Everything costs more in Europe, even for big names like Sony and Dell.

I know that, but more resellers means more customers which means longer que. Hence my quote.

Better than none imo. I am glad to see MC carrying EK & CL products even if the selection is currently small.

I can, but that's where my HD bays are currently for my RAID array.

I have a 60mm rad on top but, i prefer to have my rads blowing through the side rather than into the case (or top). Want the heat away from me rather than close to my desk.

No company has ever said "we need less customers." The fact is production times and efficiency are being worked on. That's the key.

True, but most companies dont expand the customer base when they already have problem keeping up with the customers they have.
But least leave it there.

He, I remember in the early-mid 00s when the water cooling scene was starting to really gain traction, many water cooling
gear manufacturers were apparently not really set up for the amount of orders they seemed to be getting. Waiting times
of months were not unheard of. So honestly, 5-6 weeks doesn't sound that insane to me compared to what I've seen
on that front. Not that I don't appreciate quick shipping, but you know, just saying, our world these days just seems to be
so impatient. wink.gif
