First thing that popped into my head:

Yeah, it can be a killer on yourself and wallet once you go into uncharted diy stuff. I've never been a good painter and so i had some serious worries. Luckily, matte paint (primer/paint combo) is forgiving and mistakes can be sanded down and fixed. Its just very time consuming doing each panel and having a tx w/ pedestal is huge job to finish. I skipped some areas you will never see as it was just quicker and less expensive this way. But I'm way over $100 just in paint alone (not including other materials and my time). My friend is big into the car scene down in mexico and gets discounts through some of his buddies shops. His Mustang and Ranger where done very nice and nothing like the horror stories you hear when you have your car re-sprayed for cheap in Mexico. He also has media blaster I can use so I may just go w/ this route in the future.

The U2UFO and the Ascension can be configured w/ "horizon" layout and both are classified as "cube" case like the S8 and X9.
-Stacking cases is not CL first as well (Iirc, MM has had this option or had pedestals too).
-Cube case was not invented by CL. Remember the Mozart?

I'm not condoning TT "direct" influence on some of their recent products. If its legal and there's a market for it, why not? Its business to them, nah? But I will stand up for the X9 as it came before TT's unveiling of their new product "designs" and it fulfilled a segment of the market that CL was not able to meet due to the higher price (and quality). The X9 is not 100% perfect, but for someone who's not going to spend $400-1000 on a case alone, its a nice option to get this design at a budget price. Only reason I sold mine was because Stren offered me his TX and i ended up splurging on this (I am sad tongue.gif).


You can continue your TT rant/hate on their rest of their products though, so have at it Mega thumb.gif


Going back to installing/removing drivers. I'm exhausted....next time, I'll have it professionally painted redface.gif.




edit: Oh, yes on the french fries picture (without the "e") btw tongue.gif

I can't wait to get back to the states and watch this video,

As to the opinion your welcome to have your own, we all can't be perfect eek.gif

Meh, I did a video a long time ago on my modded 932 HAF. then it disappeared when googles bought youtube. Never made one since then and I've been through 20+ builds if memory serves me right.


Mega has been on a rampage recently. No holiday over in Asia right now for you? More work makes Mega go crazy...

Don't forget all the Yeong Yang cube cases that came years before the Mozart. I forgot the model number, but one of their cubes in eaaaarly 2000's I had this insane crush over just because of how different they were compared to ye olde standard beige box.

EDIT: I also remember the whole Lian Li aluminum "revolution" (what was it, the PC60?), and how they even took out full page ads in various magazines (Computer Gaming World comes to mind, back when it was 400+ pages and mostly content) to showcase how it was such a dramatic change in things. Wanted one of those too, especially after some of the ModTheBox guys (I think it was them anywys) did the whole "ooooooh, 10 led stereo VU meter in the grill!" stuff...

Yup, i remember those too.


This case also predates them all, cost about $10k back then (for the entire system & display), and its made from magnesium.....thank goodness GTX 480s were not invented then devil.gif








In all, most computer designs that are common have progressively evolved over time. Which is the natural thing to keep consumers interested yet still w/in the confines of the basic design to keep it true to its roots. Being completely different and out of the box (figuratively) is cool and spices things up a bit but it doesn't guarantee long term success and adoption. Ie:

First post in this thread .... got my S3 awhile back last year and slowly building it up as time and funds allow. I'm finally ready to buy some sleeved cables for it, but not sure what exact sizes to use for each cable. I want to get just enough that it reaches but not too long that it creates clutter.

I did some rough measures and this is what I came up with:

  • 24 Pin - 20cm
  • 8 Pin EPS - 30 or 40cm
  • 8pin Pcie - 40cm
  • Sata - 20 or 30 cm


If any one has lengths they used ( or pics ) it would be appreciated.

I sleeve my own cables (and have for many years now).

Here's the easiest way to do this, Measure each cable you're going to use and then add additional length for each. For example:

If your 24Pin is 2 feet long, there's 24 wires, 24x2=48 feet. I'd add an extra 10 or 15 feet just in case.
If your SATA cables are 1 foot long, and you have 3 drives, that's 3 feet, add an additional 4 feet.

It's always better to order MORE than you need, because if you order just enough and you mess up, you don't have to reorder and wait to get the sleeve to finish your project.

I really don't have much issue with sleeving anymore, after 7 or 8 whole PSUs, fans, SATA, USB, audio cables...... It's almost like second nature to me. Gotta be close to 1,000 wires at this point.

Thanks for the info ( always nice to have HW reps in the thread).

Unfortunately I'm going to out source the work and have someone build the cables for my AX860i in my system. Ive done sleeving in the past before, while I would love to do it myself. I'd rather pay someone at this point to get it done and probably cleaner than I could ever do it . I was just looking for lengths people used when they did it or bought some cables.

While I did measure it out, its always nice to hear peoples experiences first hand.

Case: S8S

Anyone know if I can fit Hardwarelabs SR-2 Multiport in the front Flex bay (240) and attach a Res/pump combo and still have enough clearance? Or should I just got with Hardwarelabs 240GTS?

I went with bitfenix extensions.





Don't have the patience and time for more diy sleeving tongue.gif
