    OMG! I was joking about me being able to resell your craftmanship as i dont have a distribution network but now you will sell it through a "fairly large company" that is just awesome man!
    Just like nutman said, must be one incredible feeling!
    Pls drop the name of the company once you get past the whole lawyer stuff!
    +REP for being the first one I know to actually get his case out "in the wild"
    Looking forward to your next creations!

    Oh yeah!

    I can finally let the cat out of the bag! Lamptron will be mass producing this case for markets world wide! If you have any suggestions, make them now as they are still looking for feedback!



    Keep in mind Lamptron are already making the below changes:

    1. Anodised and brushed aluminium interior and exterior.

    2. Drive bays at the top.

    3. A single as opposed to a dual PSU slot.

    4. HPTX compatibility.

    5. Fill and drain ports already implemented.

    6. Vandal resistant switches as standard.

    Here is a simple template for you to use to provide useful feedback:

    1. What would you like to see added to the case and why:

    2. What don't you like about the case and why:

    3. Any additional comments:

    Congrats on making it comercially ;)

    However, I don't understand why they would choose to go with only 1 PSU slot?
    Why not offer 2, for maximum flexibility, and then just make a cover plate (this can't cost much to produce!) for those who only want to use 1 PSU?

    Ooooh I look forward to seeing one of these in brushed anodised alu, I'm sure you are too :D do you get 1 when they make the first batch :D & I'd never have guessed it was Lamptron who got the deal :D didn't even know they made cases, should be awesome mate :) again very well done with this :clap::rock:.
    I wonder if they will go with thin alu though & will the windows still be flush fit ones & will the panels still be magnetically held on.

    1- Nothing. As I think I made clear earlier in the thread, I LOVE this case.

    2- See answer to 1

    3- You ****ing sell out! (kidding)
    Well done mate. So is this Lamptrons first foray into cases or have I missed something? I thought they just make fan controllers?

    I think a major congratulations is in order. :rock:
    To get your case picked up for manufacture is an outstanding achievement.

    I will take this feedback into account and forward it to Lamptron, we are still in prototype stage and they wanted to reduce the size a bit but the dual PSU option is very much still on the table.


    Haha pricing is most certainly out of my hands, I don't even know a ball park figure atm.



    We are looking at the magnetic option and yes this will be their first ever case!


    First case for them (and what a case to release straight up!)


    Thanks Voigts! It won't be the last case designing I do thats for sure! Good to get out there in the industry though and I can't wait for this thing to hit the shelves, that will feel absolutely unreal!

    Congratulations mate, that is very big news.

    I don't like the idea of it being made in alu though, I think it will lose its charm.

    Well, I just imagine that they will sell more of these, if you can pack more than 1 PSU into it - since it's going to be so huge, many buyers will probably put quite some power hungry stuff in there, so better leave their options open.

    Me? I'd never go for 2 PSUs, let alone 2 graphics cards - such a waste of space, money and electricity - but, hey - that's just me. ;)
