As this case is the only apu centric, hdplex 160 ac dc friendly, metal, and non passive case of its kind, I don’t mind paying a steep price. It would be nice to garner more support so it’s not as spendy though.

You would seriously pay 200ish a case plus shipping? I agree garnering more interest would be nice, and that was the goal of posting on [H], but, they banned me for spam, spam being one short post....

If this is similar in quality to the usual popular stuff on this forum (sfflab stuff), sign me up.

This is going to be manufactured by the same people (Sliger Designs) that make the cerebrus and cerebrus x. The goal wasn't a budget case: the goal was the same as the NFC cases- pure quality and durable enough to last forever, hence the 1.6mm thick aluminum, not thinner steel. As for SFFLab, I wanted to sell through them, and I sent an email but got no response.

Oh, for a while I thought you got temp-banned on this forum. Yeah, [H] is not taking it easy on new-ish people who are presenting projects as products to be sold. That happened with another user from here, one of the guys who has their own metal fab shop... I believe only guys like Necere and Dondan are the exception, because they've been on [H] for many years, and had more skin in the game as the early indie case builders. They got in at a good time which is how they were able to drum up a lot of support and funding :p

I was one of the people who got banned on [H] as well, I posted about the LZ7 development and even got some really positive replies, I then tried to log back on a few hours later and I was banned with the thread deleted, I'd spent hours typing out my opening thread post full of information and development photos, lol. Admins wouldn't respond when I tried to contact them about it multiple times, I had been active on their for a few months. I think the reason I was banned was because I posted an external link, I was more than happy to remove it (and any other mistakes or rules I had broken) but no joy - just a straight permanent ban.

The way I see it now, is its their loss. They will be receiving less traffic and new users that I direct back from my own website and social pages when linking to development posts and news articles, etc. All they are doing is driving more and more people to come over to this forum which is a much more accepting and friendly forum anyway, so probably a good thing overall for the SFF community.

Never thought things are quite hard in [H].

Perhaps try over
.net? They have SFF section as well.

Yeah, I even left a message at the bottom: If there is an issue with this thread, please tell me.

i had spent a good deal of time typing the thread (hadn't even made a backup) and making some new renders specifically for this.

They'd probably ban me too. This forum is unique with it's custom cases and projects thread....

Ouch. Seems pretty harsh. I’m guessing you have to be a member with a certain post count as well as whatever rules regarding links or product promotions.

But if the mods won’t respond to you it makes it tough to know for sure.

There is a specific subforum on OCN for small-ish vendors called Artisans but I don't know how well maintained it is. Some of the regular members in those forums did wind up here as well.

Most of the interesting builds have been in the custom case build logs, gave us Compact Splash, @Jeffinslaw's project mATX, and @4RTEX's FPS-Case 1.

I see.

I've been working on a similar project as well. The layout is a lil' different but it's a similar spec sheet.

I just posted the thread on it.

All these Ryzen APU cases being planned but would like to see one show up eventually :) This is almost like a fun race of sorts, of who'll be the first to show and release one. Even I want to get in on making a APU case now!

Some ideas.
- Use the side walls as the legs of the body.
- Some motherboards have backlight. You can add a cutout to highlight the area under the body.
