    My one will not have the rog logo. I am not sure what is going to be done logo & engraving wise as yet.

    So far I am thinking it will be either white/orange or black/orange

    I am not sure what ""COOLING"" at the moment. I want to wait until I see the case in person before I make any decisions :( (but it lookes big "slap me ")

    Are you really going to have a waterfall as a res? I thought this would introduce air into the watercooling system and decrease its efficiency.

    Not sure if you are planning on using this in the design as its a bit unclear, but thought i'd point out that its actually the mad hatter and not wonka...

    hate to see a whole bunch of effort go into it and then you find out after and feel like a total .....

    GL with it all, i'll be watching

    Wait.....That PLASTIC case cost $950?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
    If thats what i got for my money, i'd be PISSED.
    Looks like those lame ass clear cases you used to get back in the day for $40

    Could have gotten a Case Labs TH10 or STH10 for that price or a Little Devil V8 or a DD Double wide for around $650 :lol:

    If I'm not mistaken, the prototype was this: http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showpost.php?p=14181653&postcount=2739 - which is pretty awesome. That version seems to be wearing some rounded trim that the other (2, thus far) seem to lack, and I think it makes all the difference between it being a giant plastic box and an epic plastic box.

    you are mistaken !!!!!!!!!!!!!!that case is mostly glued together..

    this is bolt together and flat packabel big part of the desine

    that case is not a thermal tower ............its not flat packabel and is no longer aloud to be made.

    granted nicer...

    and is still not going to be available till next week it comes in what ever color u like it to.

    clear gives me the choice on color ergo the name paper back


    but this is the stock case and yes as of fare it dose look like one of them old clear cases u could get for 40 bucks and ugly as hell but wait till im finished with the wonka theam hence why i got it all clear
    think about it once i paint the inside of the plexi il have 6mm of clear cote now if u ask me id hate to lay on that much clear to get some depth in paint

    Sorry, you are indeed mistaken, that design was sold to Lampton and according to a lamptron rep, will be in production in about 6 months time.

    and I agree, this box is not epic at all, certainly would not part cash for this effort.

    price dose seem a bit high but that comes with all and any customizing u like.

    daniel from epic will sit down and let u change what u like and add fans here and psu mount there and things like that as this is pre production as it goes into production in one week i said just cut it standed we can change things after !!!

    but ill say one thing its a verry nice construction designee for flat pack

    with no instructions i was abel to bolt it together in under an hour :)

    and now the fun part for me is to make an ugly case look good :)

    and yes in clear its ugly !! but in black and soforth i think its nice simple ..

    That would explain my confusion...there are elements of the design which seem very similar, but I just haven't been able to warm to the Thermal Tower with all its exposed bolts and square edges.

    Lot of money to pay to take on a "challenge"!
