Well it's not that the SMA8 will be outdated, it's the fact that it would be disappointing to get an awesome case, and then have it replaced with something better. And I don't necessarily mean better, because the SMA8 is, like I said, and awesome case. With Caselabs, you can't go wrong either way.

Sure it's awesome, but it's not ideal. For example, it can't carry 560 on top without moding, and cutouts for wires are not placed well.

You see how Jim changed it in his own SMA8



Well it seems this is the only 2 minuses I may say in SMA8 biggrin.gif but who know what will be in next gen. Maybe some way to push cold air in main chamber like in TJ11, or smth

You can mod it yourself. Just because a 560 won't fit doesn't mean it's a bad case. A 480 is still more than enough. I was just stating that I would be kind of dissapointed if I receive my case and an updated one is released next month. But it's still not stopping me from enjoying the SMA8.

Do you mean it eclipse Single Wide Magnum? I have 2-3 weeks until my SMA8 will be shipped, maybe it's good idea to cancel or postpone my order and see at this new line?

No, the EARLIEST you'd probably see something is December, and that's if the stars align correctly. Probably looking more toward the beginning of next year some time. A case has to be designed, machines have to be programmed, prototypes built... It's a ways out.

My blocks were on sale for almost half of what new one's from other makes go for, so it was a really easy decisions. In 4k, everything runs smooth for the newer and recent games. Some older one's can get a bit finicky in 4k, so I drop it down to wqhd. Other then that, with enough cooling, you can tame these Hawaiian volcanoes tongue.gif

Damn that's smexy! drool.gif

Hey all,

So I have a SMA8 on order and trying to make up my mind on radiator options.

If I put a 560 rad in the bottom chamber, will I still have room to instal a 120 fan in the bottom most flex bay?

If not, then would a 480 make it possible?

This is great news! I don't know anything about the new line... but count me in, I want one!

I have a 560mm in mine and a 120mm fan in the bottom flex bay:
