    good to know. I will update as well. Mine will ship next week to superbuy. Having superbuy I can at least reduce customs a bit maybe because they just put a reduced price on the package value. Still tho, could have gone the Winter One route with that price xD anyways

    yea i hope it looks good with black, too. I wanted to further mod the front with a custom vinyl Dragon sticker to match my future GMK Red Dragon (gold version) mouse pad so the color mismatch may not be as obvious if it happens to be. Congrats tho on the shipping - I just asked my agent to ask...

    nice that it gets going - i hope mine won't take too long and will ship to superbuy before cny. D: I only did the custom painted top mesh and an EU plug (i hope lol) - I have black so i hope it looks okay.

    Production Mesh-Licious - 14.5L Vertical, 280AIO mainstream case

    happens because it is produced there and doesn't need months of shipping. In Europe just now all the new Coolermaster SFX psus start to roll in VERY slowly while other continents have it already for several months. Marketing should be focused on specific areas, that is why you probably didn't...

    hey thanks for that! I guess by now they do a huge batch. I'll ask my agent later again as well then. My customized piece is just the top mesh in another color, nothing fancy xD

    I know about the CNY, as I also celebrate it, and the trouble in production surrounding it. The thing with quality control bugs me and therefor hope it will ship before that (I read about the late FormdT1 QC issues). I mean production of maybe (a guess) 200 cases couldn't take 4-5 months...

    oof well my agent already urged the seller directly in the beginning :D - Since the seller is reputable I'd just guess it is delayed in production - like everything around the world. If i didn't hear anything by the end of December I will ask my agent again to ask the seller about the status and...

    Nice! You can also ask the seller to custom paint parts. I payed just 100 Yuan more so he paints the tophat in a gold yellow for my color theme :) It is aesthetic indeed. I could order it directly, too but i just don't want to bother with all that things. Especially since the agent can declare...

    Cooling New Alphacool SL-15 (120x120x15mm) SFF fans - Noctua budget competitor?

    wow how come i didn't notice the phobya one? I'm like 24/7 at the aquatuning store xD Yea phobya, alphacool, noiseblocker and be quiet sometimes share their fan designs or do rebranding appearantly. I guess I will then either have a look at the ID-Cooling fan or just go for the noctua one. I...

    CPU RX6800 XT & Enhance 7660B 600W PSU

    Depends on your CPU and if you have many harddrives, fans and such. If the PSU is platinum rated then it could handle it.

    I just asked my superbuy agent to ask the acat seller if this kind of "aviator" power plug cable is included. I only find weird high power plugs lol. I will definitely not wire that myself lol The space looks like to be as big to fit a normal Schuko connector but no, someone wants to be special...

    yea will do - i considered the NR200, as well, as it also shares the same layout as the acat x2 and ncase m1. I like the looks of the acat more tho and the fact that it is smaller (~15l vs ~18l). Considering that I may move to China next year, I want it as small as possible, so it is easier to...

    Isn't the Acat X2 having a 3090 FE in the technical drawing? Would also be sub 15l (~14.7l). I ordered that case today - from what I've read here, it should be ready to ship now.

    looks nice indeed. Wondering if one could do basically a double rad like in the nr200/m1 with one rad being on the side and the other on the bottom (if the gpu is one-slot due to watercooling anyways and using itx). May actually be a better wc alternative to the nr200 for being slightly bigger...
