Hmm... I guess I could do that, but I'd rather just wait and get the whole full case tongue.gif

You can get every single part replaced, so buying all the parts would get you the whole case. Only difference is price and right now, color.

Probably cheaper to have a shop remove the stock finish and get it pc'd or painted in your color of choice. Check around your city for shops that do this, you'll probably find one that can do it. My friend had his 35mm extended top redone in black pc. Removal of the old finish and the new one totaled I believe $30. I've heard some paint strippers will work on pc, but not all of them. I asked about media blasting and due to the aluminum construction, its not recommended for these cases (even soda blasting).


Black pc is the only finish they have and from experience (and ear's ringing) don't ask about another finish. Until they relaunch the other colors they have suspended (white, gunmetal, primer), black a'la Henry Ford is the only finish for the cases.

Chiobe's suggestion is a work around but you'll end up spending more for a case. Buy it now, and then get it redone. Or wait for the other colors to return.

Lol, you're not the only one. I got the SMA8, and I search on google everyday "Caselabs SMA8" haha. I get the same results everyday, and it still excites me thumb.gif

I'm at 3 weeks and 2 day biggrin.gif I'm hoping to get the case before the fall semester starts on August 24th (which would be exactly two months).

snip from the OP

"To get added, post in this thread with a pic of your case, preferably also include a link to your build log!"
"Please also make sure you're also on the official build log list here"


Having said that.........
Our list-keeper @stren hasn't added anybody since January rolleyes.gif
Upload some pics when they arrive, so he can add the link in the list.
And if not done so yet, consider getting yourself a build-log organized - more often that not, by starting a new thread in the Intel Build Logs forum
Add the link when you post your pics/s for it to be also added into the list....
and we can follow along thumb.gif

The official build log thread list also seems to not have been updated in quite a while from what I can see.
I posted there in Sept 2013 and mine still isn't on the list, as are others who've posted since from what I
can tell. Ah well, such is life.

So yesterday I took out all 4 radiators and fans from the pedestals for a good cleaning...took most of the day! I couldn't believe how dirty the fans were, especially since they seldom spin up very fast unless I'm benching. But they have been in a few years now.
Anyway a piece of a Mr. Clean "magic eraser" dipped in water and a paper towel worked pretty good for the fan rotors. wink.gif
The radiators I took to my shop and blew all the dust out with my compressor.

Since I had it down I put new XSPC gaskets on the UT60 480mm where they meet the radiator mounts, this keeps the mount off the plugs on the side of the UT60's for a better air seal.
I also decided to put filter material back at the front/rear of the pedestals, they really do catch a lot of dust and I'm sorry I ever took them off!

My old back and butt is really hurting after working on the floor all day, lol.

I know that @stren is super busy...
But if we keep poking him poke.gif maybe something will happen tongue.gif

If I recall correctly he was asking for assistance in administrating the thread.
If anyone with the the passion and time is interested - maybe drop him a PM thumb.gif
