I'm finding it really hard to make a choice about the color. The recent picture of the different surface treatments didn't show the colors very well and the pictures on the website are renderings I assume? Could you show us the different colors in good light?
About the side panels. You could choose "mixed" but couldn't specify any further (right vented, left TG, or vice versa, e.g.). Are the panels exchangeable or wil you ask later for the details?
I interested in using the case with one side TG (the side I'm looking at) and the other side with vented sidepanels, to compromise between looks and cooling performance. As I recollect this hasn't been tested with the prototype.
Will it be possible to buy the case this way? Or would one need to...
For me the choice between TG and vented really depends on the difference in cooling performance using a dual rad setup. Did the tests with the prototype cover this?
I presume that cooling performance with TG and air cooled components is a lot worse than with the vented panels?
Nice! My case is still running as HDPC. Silent as ever. At first glance I don't see any differences between my V2 and your V3. I tried some light gaming but the cooling isn't sufficient for long-lasting full load.
Phanteks is going to sell a distribution plate. I don't know the production costs of your plate. But perhaps later buying them instead of producing them could lower the price?
