Oh, no, totally. I agree. I mean, seeing the M8 go, for me, was a bit of an emotional experience. I bought one when they went on sale, way before I ever worked for CL. I loved that case. When I had lost my previous job, I had to sell it, then it was sold again, and Mega Man now has it. It's the only M8 outside of the Lab with drop in rad mounts.
I just want to make sure that I'm being as communicative as possible, and letting people know why we're doing what we're doing so it doesn't seem like we're doing it "just because." Everything we do at the Lab has very specific reasons and is always in the best interest of the company to move forward, to better our service and products. There's far too many companies in this industry that just want to make a quick buck. And boy, do they. But, with no board, no shareholders, we as a small company get the benefit of being close to our customers. I love being able to talk to you guys (and gals) like another user, because in the end, I mod, I game, I watercool, and I'm passionate about PCs and enthusiast gear. I'm not some guy who puts himself on a pedestal, I'm just another guy who loves awesome hardware, and I love awesome builds even more.
I saw a guy at Microcenter one time, he had brought his PC in with a new EK Kit (in a case not really designed for water cooling) and was really worried about how to properly tell how fluid was flowing, since the reservoir was so tiny. I, being just another customer there, stepped in when the salesmen didn't know what the hell to tell the guy. I never mentioned who I was, where I worked, etc. Just gave him tips. He was genuinely appreciative and it made me feel good to help another guy out. After all, I had been there a long time ago, nervous about watercooling. Now I'm more nervous mounting a clunky air heatsink on a cpu than I am about water, lol.
