Please post pics of your case/build. Since we have a fledgling club, I will add additional posts w/ case/build updates. If I missed you, please reply or send me a pm. Thanks! '47 Knucklehead

 

 

 

 

Please pardon this second sheet for now, having just taken over the thread, I am trying to figure out a way to deal with the spread sheet and going through all 25 pages and make sure no one was missed.

Ive never been a fan of thermaltake but I don't mind this. But then again I could just go for a caselabs.

Caselabs S8 is better in terms of quality (probably?)
But this has more room for activities!

Im coming from a Lian Li v1020r so im spoiled as far as quality is concerned. As i put everything together it all fit well but some of the pre tapped holes needed the threads cleaned up and de-bured but everything was well thought out. For my build i chose to remove both drive cages as well as removed the optical bays!..Finally a manufacturer considered this!.. my one concern is that the top cover is sagging a little bit.. it is not intruding with the radiator or anything...but is drooping...and i might add..."it is a perforated piece of steel"... and its 14 inches wide and 23 1/2 inches long!!!... its a little heavy. That being said... the weight...almost 44 pounds... makes it a beefy unit indeed. Everything on it is well constructed...the sheet metal sides and top are a little thin..they have to be...it weighs 44 pounds!.. if you want Caselabs go buy Caselabs.. this is not a replacement for solid aluminum construction. But...your not paying $500 for it either. I considered a Caselabs but in the end...upon seeing this was up and coming.. i pre-ordered so i could be first on the block with one... so i wouldn't have a bunch of reviewers sway me with whatever new gizmo shinny and special bla bla bla... So.. in short i would recommend this to a friend. For $169... you cant do better....for $500...of course you can. But... in the realm of $500 cases...i wouldn't promote anything to a friend...unless your okay with friends being mad at you for spending their money on such audacious equipment as Caselabs or Mountain Mods. The one true thing is this... If you should be running short of space..you can go up or down or both and still be just over $500...For 22500 cu. inches of space... find that anywhere else at even the same level of build quality for twice the price and i will be impressed. Hope its not to much of a ramble.. and feel free to ask anything you want to know.. I will even get pics of what ever you could want. top001.JPG 87k .JPG file

Thanks for the information. smile.gif


Anyway, I have few questions.
  1. Could you estimate the shipping weight?
  2. What are the shipping box's dimensions? (I want to calculate shipping cost as i am going to ship it internationally)

  3. Do you get one or two of this piece (the piece that the power supply sits on) and if you got two does that mean that you can install 2 PSUs at the same time or did they forget something?

  4. Can the hard drive cages be installed on the other side as well? (The side where the PSU is originally located)
  5. I am trying to find out if i can install two PSUs and use both of the two HDD drive cages in the same time.
