post #9101 of 22267
Well, never used a cube typed case always had towers. I really liked to have the Magnum STH10 but after the opitions right now can't convince myself to spend $600+ on a case. May change later but just wanted to know which of them had same playground as 900D or bigger. Figured best place to ask is from people who own them.

so Style doesn't matter much, cube/tower anything is up for option.

I admit it took me a good bit of reading and video watching before I bit the bullet on a Caselabs case. My ST10 should arrive tomorrow and I'm rather excited.

The price is up there, but like most things, you get what you pay for. Everything I've seen and read always talks about the exceptional build quality and how modular they are, etc. The last thought I had that made me pull the trigger so to speak, is that this case will be the last case I'd ever need to own. Unlike most other cases that I've used where I put a build in it, then when a new build came along, I ended up replacing the case, etc. The Caselabs one will last me much, much longer than that.

When ordering I also had to "skip" on an option or two to keep the price down a tad, but considering the "add-ons" can always be purchased later at a very reasonable price, it works well for me.

You need to get ready to spend a lot more than what you paid for the 900D, I can tell you that right away. The obvious comparison is the SMA8, but it has some slightly older features compared to newer cases. If you want big, take a look at the recently launched TH10A.

Incidentally which case did your brother buy and what things did you like about it?
post #9104 of 22267
If I'm not mistaken he has the one that Th10A replaced.

Thing's I liked
1: room it has, front side is all open big, Backside had a lot room where you could put a lot of things to keep the front clean and simple.
2: Fact that everything appeared to be screws, no flippin rivets. So changing or adding custom stuff would easy.
3: options, if I got one with soild midplate but what fan mount midplate I can buy one un-screw the old, and drop fan one no fuss, no headache.
4: Seems strong well built. One of my issues with 900D like side panel and bottom panel are weak and bend very easy. Which is odd since my 900D loaded feels like a ton when moving it. I had to move my brother's since he just had neck surgery, and it felt as it weighed nothing.

right now Im leaning towards the Magnum SMA8 with some option's I want it's at $559. Just one option I'm not sure what they are referring to is "bottom Chassis Section"

The TH10 is a double wide that was riveted in places as far as I know so maybe he had another case?

Either way, that SMA8 is pretty much an upscale 900D with options for a 560mm rad in the bottom as well. The bottom chassis section is exactly what you think it is- the floor of the case. You can opt to have it solid if you are mounting rads side ways, or get cut outs for fans/rads if you are going with a horizontal mounting for radiators.

The TH10A did in fact replace the TH10 with several new features, including rivetless construction.

I like my s8, but that TH10A has me. That beast will be the home for my next build...

So many sexy builds in here, just waiting on my SM5 so I can join the awesome Caselabs Family biggrin.gif but damn me for being a sucker for the Gunmetal color, it feels like I've been waiting years since I've ordered it(even though it's only been a week) sad-smiley-002.gif

I also can't wait to see the new prototype, I plan to make a itx build with my spare parts and hopefully will expand my caselabs love thumb.gif

My case has officially shipped! Not sure if Fedex will get it here tomorrow morning or Saturday. Can't wait! I need to get the radiators set up in it.
