    Log Trouble picking a case...mATX / ITX

    I have built in a D-Frame Mini, Ncase M1, and Sliger Cerberus X. I would look at the regular Cerberus. The build quality is top notch and it's easy to build in. Plenty of fan layout configurations to either run a front to back or bottom to top air flow scenario. Also, any particular reason for a...

    Be my guest! How do you mean? I just used it to do the initial bleeding of the loop. Then, used a syringe to pull out any remaining water in the reservoir and then removed it from the loop.

    Cerberus X: Dark Matter Build Thread

    Alright, it’s basically complete!! I’m just waiting on the 2080ti to show up. I decided to sell my 1080ti to a buddy, but still planning on upgrading to a 3080ti as soon as they are released. The cables came from Ensourced and look absolutely fantastic. No matter how hard I tried I’m still not...

    Cerberus X: Dark Matter Build Thread

    Well, I had my first big whoops with this build... It wouldn’t be a sff build without one, but it caught me by surprise nonetheless. As I finally finished my loop and feeling good about it I decided to take it all out and get ready for cables. Well, before that I decide I wanted to put the side...

    Well, the copper is finally in and it looks stunning if I’m honest. Pictures don’t do it justice. My wife even thinks it looks nice. ;) I was actually surprised how easy it was to cut as well with one of those little tube cutters. Just keep adding pressure and spin the pipe. I do have one run I...

    Cerberus X: Dark Matter Build Thread

    Alright, I finally made some progress. After battling clearance issues and the like I decided to move the radiator to the bottom. It’s not ideal, but it’ll be setup as exhaust with the GPU right above it. This change really helped with tubing runs As well. Hopefully the GPU isn’t too starved for...

    Cerberus X: Dark Matter Build Thread

    So, a few changes have already been made. I decided to go with custom cables from Ensourced. I've used his cables before in my NCASE M1 and they are great. After taking inventory last night I just didn't have enough supplies nor the patients to do them. I will however need to re-sleeve the power...

    Cerberus X: Dark Matter Build Thread

    After a few ITX builds, (NCASE M1, D-Frame Mini) I was craving something a little bigger. I wanted more RAM slots, more PCI-E slots, etc. I wanted something with presence, but not unnecessarily so. Enter Cerberus X. What a little (big) case! It has a small size foot print, but with the ability...

    Caselabs S3 Build Log: W0RM

    I am starting a new build in the Caselabs S3. This will be a long and slow one as I will be utilizing the new AMD 3950x 16 core and most likely the 2080Ti SUPER. So, as I wait for the main components to release it will be a lot of mock up and prep work. A long story about the case. I originally...

    What Software Do You Use?

    Hello, I'm interested in designing and building my own case. Hell, I'm open to making them for the masses especially with the current CaseLabs predicament. After looking through theses forums I'm curious to know what exact software people have used to do their initial design work? I've had...
