I think it's cool and wouldn't mind having one. How are the temps, by the way?

=( I just bought one and after opening the box i saw HUGE scratches on the front panel. Now before anyone says live with it. Let me say again its HUGE, some are 1 1/2 inches in length, deep and ugly right on my front panel and for something that is supposed to be clear I think this is a tad bit of a problem. Anyone else run into this? I went through their polices and it looks like im SOL (will not be responsible for any damage to the product itself) what kind of crap is this? I expected more from a 200 dollar case

check your shipping contract carefully, or just complain to them that it was inadequately packaged and get them to sned you a replacement front panel. (Although how the scratches got there is beyond me. ???

well I  just got off the phone with a guy from designcomp and he said I just had to send in the front panel and they would send me a new one. Seems I was the only unlucky person to get a scratched case as he informed me this was a first time for this to have happend.  In all reguards this seems to be a great company and I was very pleased on the way they handled this. Thanks guys

Isn't $200 kind of expensive for a case that you have to build yourself?  Aren't the ones already built around the same price?

i'd rather buy a dyi case even if it was a little more expensive than a already put together one.

that's just a case modder thing. ;)

expansion cards
« Reply #16 on: February 25, 2003, 12:08:06 PM »

Hi,

I know that this is an older thread, but maybe someone still reads it ....

I built this case last week (bought at SVC.com, case was no-name, but it's the same case as I can see from the pictures and DesignComp site; the documentation is identical as well....

Anyway, I have everything fitted nicely except the expansion cards - the screw holes & the bracket holders are about 1-2mm off, what is enough to make the cards not fit right, or better, not to be able to tighten the screws easily. I was just curious whether anyone else ran into similar problem?

I disassembled the case and rearranged everything for the second time (again, with all case screws loose as before, still the same problem.

Anyone?

thx
dave

for 200 bucks, id rather just build do a dyi with my own deisgn, and get the materials from lowes or something. i was thinking 30= cheap case + 150 = a whole lot of plexi. you could make whatever you wanted clear, or nearly any clear design you wanted. no way im paying 200 bucks for a case. id rather spend 30, and get some really kick-ass hardware fo the inside. or mabe a watercooling unit :D

saint-oni, thx for reply

this case was much cheaper, only some $95 what I found fairly reasonable; everything fits precisely, with the exception of those mentioned expansion slots ...

I would love to do my own case of course, but have no tools (and workshop) for project of thta magnitude; ie cutting plexiglass, beveling the edges, polishing etc.

cheers
dave
