Yes that was the plan from the beginning... to make a work of art that was also extremely powerful with max cooling

Section31 In retrospective, caselabs should have produced more smaller cases as that is what the market is trending towards. The move to 7nm and 5nm meant that we didn't need so large cases and less cooling was ok.

That being said, I do miss having such high caliber cases that can support multiple thick 480mm to 560mm radiators. I eagerly await to see how 7nm performs power consumption and heat wise at or close to 5ghz. Based on early amd leaks, its still requires a lot even if it is 50% less at 14nm. We will see what the future holds but there could another Nehalem architecture down the road where say 3.7Ghz CPU outperforms older 5Ghz CPU at the IPC level.

Our case tastes also change over time. Now, I find myself wanting to go to more tower like cases as I find the S8 too wide. Probably would have bought an SMA8 Revision for certain had caselabs been still around. So we all just have to hold out till we find something we like from other companies. Myself, only the prototype Odyssey X has so far been something worth upgrading to.

Honestly, I would list your caselabs online and see what you get. Don't name an price and set buyout high enough, so you don't get low ball offers. Only sell at the price you think it is worth. You can even avoid paying ebay fees if you can negotiate private deal.

I missed the chance to sell my caselabs at my msrp myself. I couldn't find replacement case but I should have just gone open bench or smaller case with an mora. Prices have dropped quite a bit for most caselabs models that it is not worth it to sell for myself.

EugenBLR CL - this is a good case, made in the "industrial" style. This fact makes it easy, anywhere in the world, to establish the production of cases, because No special equipment is required, as on serial cases.
If the СLs themselves laid out the drawings of their cases for free access, it would be possible to independently manufacture the necessary cases.

You can also make the necessary drawings using existing enclosures. There would be a desire and demand.
