I used the bubblewrap, Styrofoam peanuts, and other excess packing materials from one of Wermads shipments to ship three or four packages! thumb.gif

My TH10 had a good box and packaging, it just wasn't prepped properly. Once she went off to its new owner, I obviously took off the offending culprit: the handle. Once out of the way. I wrapped the whole case in bubble wrap, spending ~$30 just in bubble wrap. Added some cardboard pieces to reinforce the integrity of the box and add more barrier to help the case. Lastly, I used nylon reinforced adhesive paper tape and went through a whole roll of clear tape.

This overkill is small investment to help as best as possible (w/in your scope) avoid any shipping issues.

Yeah... I think the problem here is that he payed UPS to wrap the case, if it were me I would have broken down cardboard from my plethera of boxes & pad for heavy shock...

As I said, all in all I am extremely happy & grateful for Strong's generosity, but i'm going to pursue the UPS insurance to see if I can get some money back for the busted panel, bent face plate, & blown brackets... It must have been subject to some serious force to bend 90% of the brackets out of whack.

These are all little things that only I will notice, so not a huge deal... I will start putting it together Friday me thinks. I need to have it done before the end of April... If anyone has followed my past two OCN build logs, i'm slow.

not for lack of trying...

Any chance any @Xnine or any of the other CL staffers/reps can possibly help expedite getting in touch with CL so I don't have to place a second order? I have an order in the fulfillment state, would love to add to it.

Not on my end, I'm afraid. I'm 3 states away. Just email CS@Caselabs.net and they'll get you sorted.

Pretty much... Only one side of the box is dented, which just so happens to line up with the bent face plate & cracked panel... I'm really not too worried about it @ this point though. The face plate would be near impossible to fix, the panel will be easy to fix, if I can get paint, & the clips are super cheap. I'm just happy iv'e finally left the assembly line case market. wheee.gif

A.) my door won't close.

wonder if I can get in contact with them quick enough to get new clips added into my order. Looks like most of them have busted in transit.

it is powder coated, so no touch up paint ~ ( it is literally baked on, little pieces of plastic that melts to the metal )

ahhh... Powder coat... Seems a bit fragile for powder coat... Hmm... going to have to go to the drawing board.... May just leave it as it is. I'm also thinking about having it clear coated, as the white finish comes off easily.

So after playing for a while, getting the 120 x 28mm Delta fans to fit was futile. I ended up bending the HDD + Fan mount out of shape. For reference I was using CaseLabs 120 x 38mm fan mounts.

On the other hand the good news is that they fit normally in the flex-bay 120 x 38mm fan mount. It would be nice if CL could make their HDD side 38mm fan mounts a bit wider.
