Oh sure... now that I'm all primed to stalk your posts looking for an indication that a deal awaits just around the next corner... you get all committed on me. See how you are? tongue.gif

I guess I'm not the only one currently stalking Mike for deals!

That's how I became a Caselabs owner!

Congratulations, BTW! I'm only a little bitter that I forgot to stop by this thread over the past few weeks. However, at least it went to a good home and I'll get to (hopefully) see a build log of it - or at least some finished pics. smile.gif

But yeah I'm constantly plugging my phone, thumb drives, camera, e-cigs, all sorts of stuff into my PC to charge or transfer files and I can't be arsed to reach around the back of the case.

I'll put in an order in the next week or so. I need to get the wheels moving on this build and make sure I don't need other items from the CL store before I place an order.

Whats the best way to mount an SSD in the Merlin SM5? I see the two 3.5" HDD racks. I was thinking if I couldn't get it worked out last resort would be velcro or double-sided tape in that area.

CaseLabs have an accessory for this it's THIS

But you also have those possibilities :

Not sure, I'll wait a bit more for the tracking # to update from frozencpu.com. I had the same mind set, order would go to CL, though I'm not sure if they (fcpu) have any on hand for immediate shipping.

When you order from a reseller such as FCPU/PPC/NCIX, they send CL the order and the case is then built just as if you ordered it from us. FCPU still handles shipping confirmation/customer service regarding the order itself.

The one downside to our chassis is the inability for resellers to stock our chassis. This is because of how modular they are. Too many parts in too many configurations and colors for a reseller to keep them in stock, pick the items, and ship them according to our standards. The upside to this, is that even when you buy from a reseller, you're getting true CL quality.

That's what I figured from the get go. I have a few things pending so I'm in no rush.

May I ask if you know anything about the Flexbay 140.3 mount? I really wanna get some more info and its very hard to get a hold of CL here and on their site.

Unfortunately, I have no idea regarding 140 Flex Bays, don't see them anywhere on our site.

Keep in mind, both Jim and Kevin have been gone since Thursday for PDXLAN. Should be back tomorrow.

There was a thread started about this mounts last fall. So far the 140.1 and 140.2 are available but Kevin said the 140.3 was still pending.

I imagine it's something he'll be working on getting done soon, then. Lots of little goodies he's been working on.

I have a build log in my sig. I'm waiting on a bunch of parts and have yet to order a bunch of other parts. I rushed through my last few projects and I'm hoping to have a little more patience with this one. My budget is a little tight, I will stick with one GPU and a mid-range CPU (3570K), it's hard to ditch this CPU because out of the 6 Ivy Bridge chips I've owned its the only one to do 5GHz effortlessly. Also because my PC usage doesn't call for anything more than that. That's why mATX and mini-ITX boards appeal to me so much, I like small yet powerful, and I can't see myself using more than one GPU unless I get a nicer monitor(s).

I'm in the process of getting everything sleeved right now. I think I've picked the fans, and I'm going with something a little different than what most people are currently raving about. I hope it pays off. With my budget I just can't afford $20/ea fans. I will likely get the motherboard tomorrow in which case I will get the GTX 780 up and running in the Merlin just for the sole fact that I picked up a copy of AC4 from a client and kind of like it. The stock cooler is killing me though!
