Using custom-designed processor from AMD making use of Zen 2 and Navi architecture, Xbox Project Scarlett will be 4x more powerful than the Xbox One X. It'll be possible of running games at 120Hz frame rates, at potential 8K resolutions, while also showcasing fancy real-time ray-tracing tech. It's the works.

Just read the mail, looks like its inbound in 5h from now.

The pricing is borderline delusional though.

$230 + $50 tax + $30 guesstimate for shipping = $310 or €280.

Its a nice case, but considering he's kickstarting it, its not even nearly worth what he's asking for it.
I don't get why he thinks his case is worth significantly more than similar niche ITX cases such as the N-CASE or NFC S4-Mini.

If he did an initial run out of his own pocked, that would justify those kinds of prices, but crowdfunding? What a joke.

The PCIe riser card, without mark up cost, is like $120 alone. So, really, he's charging we'll say $110 for the case itself. After designing, and contracting someone to manufacture, and the cost to run all his over head, it's really not that much for a single person to ask for, and he likely won't be making big bucks. Ask the guy who designed the NCase. The tax is from your (or his) country/province, not him. And $30 shipping international really isn't that bad.

The riser card & cable can be purchased from Digikey for $67 in quantities over 250. Prices from 3M factory direct are $55 each in quantities over 250. Prices when ordering just one are only $87, not $120.

Needless to say, I won't be backing the Kickstarter at the over-inflated pricing. When producing in quantities that these cases would be selling at, the price of the case would actually be cheaper than the riser cable itself. I really don't see production costs being over $135 for the whole thing start to finish, unless he chose a very small manufacturing facility with high prices, or put a target number of total produced units at too low of a number.

Like @wiretap mentioned, PCI-e risers really don't cost nearly that much when bought in bulk, not even the 3M ones.

If he needs to crowdfund it and still can't get it even close tho similar cases, he's obviously doing something wrong. And the whole tax situation whether it goes to him or my state, is irrelevant, it adds to the price of the case and raises its price compared to the competition.

Like I said before, if he was doing a small run that he funded himself, those prices would be acceptable, but that's not the case.

And the $30 I guessed is for shipping to Belgium, which is a neighboring country to Germany(where the case will ship from). Its most likely going to be more expensive for people overseas, guess we'll see the actual shipping prices 2h from now.

Well, just placed an order for the Dan Case A4.

Supposedly they'll ship come anytime between October and December. I'm considering using spare parts to make a build and sell it, or keep it and use it as a LAN-box.

I'm also considering a watercooling build, but it might not be possible depending on the height of the Apogee blocks with 90-degree fittings on them.

Ordered a GEEEK A10 Case, received it yesterday, but the package consisted only of cardbox and some really slim foam. Needless to say the case came out broken in the plastic junctions and some cracks on the plexiglass were visible, too.

The materials feel very cheap anyway, so even with proper packaging I wouldn't be very satisfied I guess.

Asked for a full refund, should be coming today.
