Well I am sure as hell glad that I got my sm8 before they stopped offering gray. The color is absolutely beautiful in person.

Same, very happy I was able to get a case in gray before they decided to put an end to it. For a moment they offered to change the color completely, I said no thanks please finish it up in gray.

Wait what? That's gray? I thought it was black...My freaking eyes suck. My eye doctor said I have eagle eye vision and I see better than 20/20. But what good is that if I can't see colors?

Can you see the colour difference when you look at the CaseLabs Badge and the switches - those black bits stand out against the dark grey Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The gray can be pretty hard to tell apart from black in photos, but in person it's very apparent.

There's is the option to do a black/white but most go w/ all black or all white. Based on the pics I saw of the listing, it should be all whites thumb.gif

Strong had all white accessories, I was going to buy the case from him around September or so but we decided to stick to what we had at the time tongue.gif

I've seen you say in other posts in the water cooling gallery that you were color blind, but I thought it was kind of a joke. redface.gif
Do you have someone help you with your color schemes for your build and stuff?

Got an extra 120.4 side mount, and the aquaero mount (just in case.)

Well here's an issue that I overlooked previously rolleyes.gif
Mostly because my chassis side covers are still in the plastic and needed replacement parts to complete the ped (which I now have assembled)
Now that chassis and ped are mated again and ped has side cover on, it stands out like dogs balls where as was too subtle for me to notice earlier (I just wasn't looking for it to not fit to be honest)

The mounting screws and rubber washers that I mounted the 280 rad with are too long - the side cover would never fit on.
AND I have rubber anti-vibe pads between the fans and the mounting bracket.
Even with the screw head section sorted out (without the rubber washers) so screw heads not sticking out so far, I think fans would still stick out too far.
My conclusion is that using these side rad mounts - can't use anti-vibe pads and screw lengths must be spot on with no "spacing / washers" at the screw heads.



I would has at a guess that this would be the same for all the CaseLabs side rad mounts.
