    lol, not trolling. My case had the same issue. It's caused by the screws sticking to the powder coat from being tightened too much. Sticking the case in the freezer makes the metal shrink, loosening the bond.

    Try sticking the case in your freezer for an hour.

    Nope, I don't think bird's nest or voronoi is likely to be made. Although I've always thought that a special edition would be fun. I just don't think it's worth it. Nope, never crossed my mind. -- Anyways, sorry about being rather quiet recently, guys. Just been hard at work on V3. It's been...

    Noted. What do you think about making the case maybe ~1cm thicker (from 115mm to 125mm)?

    I use the following lengths: 24 pin – 8 inches CPU power – 10.5 inches PCI-E power 1 – 8 inches PCI-E power 2 – 8.5 inches Optimal lengths for your specific hardware will probably be a little different though. Adjust as you see fit.

    Yep, we'll definitely be going back to steel for V3. I already have a change planned that will make the motherboard tray rigid. My apologies about this; I didn't request for the case to be made out of aluminum in this batch. I highly recommend Ensourced for custom cables. I had a very pleasant...

    Yes, soon. I want to get the Breathe perfected with V3; and once that's done, then it's time for Vertex.

    I've personally only tried two coolers; the Cryorig C7 and C7 Cu, and I can tell you the C7 Cu is definitely worth it if you compare my old and new thermal tests. The C7 Cu runs noticeably quieter since overall temps are cooler.

    Yes. The FSP Dagger and its cables might be a little tight though since it's 1cm longer than the Corsair SF450/600.

    Yep, I learned from selling the prototype batch that including the power cable is a tricky deal since customers are all around the world and not everyone uses the same electrical plugs/sockets. It would be kinda nuts to stock volumes of power cables with the 15 different types of plugs used...

    Thanks for the write up. Interesting. Could you elaborate on why it was difficult to install your graphics card? I didn't have that issue, but I would appreciate your feedback for working on the next revision.
