It didn’t go anywhere. The dropped it when I think they made the bullet cases.
There was also a plans at one point for a horizontal TX10 but that didn’t work out either.

No problem! I've found little to no information about Gemini but this is what I've got:

PCDIY – Question – You guys have been busy with the release of the Mercury S8S and the NOVA X2M what else is on the horizon?

Kevin – CASELABS – Dare I say it… Gemini! Gemini will be our next case project, and we are looking to develop new concepts in design and function. Can’t say much else on the matter.

I know, it's been an incredibly long wait... From our side, Gemini keeps evolving and since it may be our last "system" case, I want to make sure that all the i's are dotted and t's are crossed smile.gif It's been a a labor of love for me and in a way, I'll be sad when it is done.

In the meantime, we have the very real and critically needed projects of further automating our ordering process and moving out website to a new platform. Both of those projects will fall on me (along with Gemini) and my wife is only willing to share me with you you guys so much... biggrin.gif so, it's a matter of picking which item is the most urgent.

A "system case" is one that is plug&play with other items like pedestals, special top covers, doors etc. Several items may used on a range of cases within that "family" Bullet is a "standalone" case while Magnum and Gemini are system cases.

Gemini will likely expand on the "system" concept and has undergone a lot of changes. While closer to production, it has to go through another step that the other case lines (outside of Bullet) did not: it has be reviewed for manufacturing efficiency. Also, the entire family will be designed simultaneously (like Bullet) to further meet the efficiency requirements. Magnum was designed at a time when we were only producing 25-50 cases a month. Things like offering a "reverse" case was an afterthought and significantly increased the inventory load. None of that really mattered because we had plenty of excess capacity (those were the days! smile.gif ).

Gemini has to be ready for a different world and hopefully will be ready to release in 2017.

Q. How is Gemini going to differ from Merlin and Mercury?

A. Gemini is going to replace all of the MAGNUM lines. So you can expect to see double wide cases with options for dual motherboards as well as updates to the Single Wide MAGNUM design. We are also going to experiment with a different "look", but Jim will touch on that. Because we are so early in development I really don't have much more information on Gemini.

@M-oll gave some rep, thanks a lot man, appreciate it
And as it turns out, lol, i did fail on the searching; again.. i just cannot into googleing.

Not much one can infer from it all, but it seems there was some shift in direction.. what sounds like a middle of the road kind of lineup is later on portrayed as a magnum successor; rather surprising honestly, given how the market had evolved in the meantime. But again, am not the typical CL customer, so..
(far as i'm concerned, they shined on inbetween situations, such as the S8. But i won't go into why again, have -unwittingly- already pissed off plenty of prima donnas round here ^^)

I've been doing some building/upgrading lately, friends and family rigs; can once more state how happy i am i'm sorted as far as PC cases may be concerned, can once again state how ******** i find it, setting multi-K rigs up in plastic pieces of crap made in China. Really makes you re-appreciate it all

No worries, I actually stumbled upon these articles/forum posts a week or two ago when I tried to figure out how many cases CL had produced over the years they were active. Thanks for the rep!

From what I gathered CL tried to make Gemini their new platform for cases so they could optimize the manufacturing and features. The Magnum-series seems to have features added to it that made it less efficient to produce and Gemini would have been designed with the manufacturing process in mind. Would have loved to see some concept sketches etcetera of Gemini as a platform and of different cases in the production line.
