Woah, there wasn't much of a saving in flat packing, but i suppose there was more weight than in my order

TH10 - TH10 Case (WHITE) 1 $479.95
ATX Layout - Standard 1 $0.00
MB Door - XL Window (CLEAR) 1 $20.00
PSU Door - Ventilated 1 $0.00
Top Cover - Ventilated 1 $0.00
MB Back Plate - Fan Holes 1 $0.00
HDD Cage Assy - Std 1 $0.00
I/O Panel - Included 1 $20.00
MAC-155 - 480 Radiator Side Mount 1 $29.95
Subtotal $549.90
Discount $-17.49
Postage/packing $378.78
Total: $911.19 USD
Plus a few other small bits and pieces that i dont remember the cost of :P
Cost me about $850 after exchange rates etc
(Purchased it when our dollar was getting about 1.10US)

Granted the cases are expensive, but the way I see it, is i will never need to buy another case for the rest of my life

I have to say though, Jim's customer service is OUTSTANDING. I'll be looking into getting a Merlin or something similar when i build a HTPC.

lol skitzo

@Hood
The chassis looks awesome. Are those 560's you mounted at the bottom? I've not seem many cases accommodating 140mm size. 120mm seems much more common. I want one, costs about as much as half my PC though

Skitz0 it will be a case you can hand down to your children! the TH10 is going to be a lovely build, they are just so nice to work with.

ex4n, pair of SR1 560's in the bottom really cant see the day when more will be required... would have though that will be overkill for some time to come

Update:

Wasn't going to move into this case until I was fully ready, the paracord still hasn't come in yet, I figured that wouldn't stop me, just going to look a bit messy for a while. Spent all day Saturday working on this, was a very long day and my computer room looked like a bomb hit it! lol.

tubing for the radiators


Grommet in the fleet to let the fan cable into the main chamber


quick disconnect stealthed into the system for easy draining


Koolance bay res fitted with the two pumps.


Every time i see the motherboard tray out of the case, i think about Rodney Reynolds. "and the motherboard tray IS removable"


Lobbed the motherboard into the case. nice sliding rails.


nest of cables for the lamptron touch, not too bad, but im thinking cove00r plate


Back of the bay res, looks sweet.


very craptasitic cable effort.


Sata drives installed, there is about 50mm of clearance behind the MB tray. makes like really easy. again more crappy cable management.


Upstairs PSU room, currently invaded by spiders!


my now VERY messy desk, 30" monitor kinda looks small now.


Side off, all connected.


i know, cables look pretty bad, but that will change soon


closer...


replaced the old EK HF with a new EK HF, still like the the plexi look and it was cheap, less than $50.


Overall im really happy with the result, everything fitted in and bolted together nicely. The STH10 is epic and I would buy it again if i had to make the same decision again

Thanks for looking!

Update:

Still working away on this, the parracord came in from Exact, ( gave up on eBay) change my mind about a lot of things along the way.

not finished yet, but well on the way.

This week I have been cable managing, tore the whole thing down and started with the rad fans. using modmsart clips the fan cables are all attached:


Using M4 screws with socket heads. the screws only go through one side of the fan. can tighten them as much as i like without bending the frame. they effing tight


read side of the case, naked. the cable running down the motherboard tray is for the led light strips. (soldering a daisy chain)


Buss bar, took the idea from the skull crusher build. so much room in the sth10, why not? so far the pumps and light are on there.


A very lonely looking stryder 1200w gold.


Naked from the motherboard side, cable still have their training wheels on:


Custom sata power cable and bitfenix sleeved sata cable. riddle me this, if those sata cables come off a machine... how come i have 4 at 30cm long and 1 at 28cm? turned out 30cm is absolutely perfect!


Back of the motherboard tray with covers on. if it wasn't for the switches it would be very clean.


Motherboard side with covers, im sick to death of bitspower fittings. going back to enzo. again need to get the switch connectors sorted.



with the side on and a reflection of the trees behind me LOL



I did install two temperature sensors into the loop, one just before the two radiators and one just after. I have to admit im a little shocked at the results, at idle the difference is 0-0.1 degree. under full CPU and GPU load it goes up to 1 degree. No doubt that is a good thing but im more than a little surprised.

Still left to complete:
sleeve the enermax fans because the silver wires look gay
redo the stock sleeving for the MB switches / led
wait for PCCG to ship a working RED led/pw switch (blue just isn't my thing)

I suppose I should contribute something to this thread since you have put a bit of effort into your build.

CaseLabs make the most ugliest & boring cases I have ever seen

Ahh, you can always rely on either Horny Samus or Dr Evil showing up to piss all over someone's efforts.

This.

Also isn't "upside-down" literally the only orientation you're NOT meant to use for pumps? Seems a bit odd that Koolance would design it like that...

Other than that, looks fucking awesome! That mobo looks tiny in there, needs XL-ATX or HTPX (sp.?) imo

A nice case but overkill for mATX board.

Try counting the number of PCI/PCI-E slots again...
