    If you right click on each picture and select "open image in a new tab", you should be able to see them.

    Hey! So my Cerberus X showed up this week (yay!) but I can't seem to find the HDD/SSD brackets. Are they supposed to have come with the case or did I make a mistake by not ordering them?

    They need to be ordered separately, there are two spots to mount SSDs to the case. You can also mount HDD or SSD to just about anywhere on the venting pattern.

    Shoot me you order # via PM I'll see what I can do!

    Website with new options and ability to purchase individual parts is coming online tonight too. =] (no window, that's towards end of month)

    Ok, I still can't seem to use USPS for shipping; only fedex seems to show up, and $30 shipping for only a sfx psu bracket weighing 1.5lbs is a bit high... This is using the parts tab on the KIC10U page.

    Rookie question, my mobo measures 9.625 inches = 244.5 x 244.5. what are the chances that it will still fit? I know it states 244 x 244 but is that already a tight fit?

    That's crazy high, working on fixing. You should see a flat rate option shortly.

    Will fit, I updated the dimensions on website.

    Fixed it, should be able to ship via USPS for ~$8.00 to anywhere in US for all small low-weight items.

    Yay, handle is available, though I wish it had washers to tighten both ends.

    Ah I understand. I don't need my HDD bracket at the moment but may pick one up when the individual pieces become available for purchase. Thanks!

    Washers for between the handle and top panel? Is it sitting loose?

    Check now, on Ceberus or Cerberus X page there's a tab to below the main picture labeled Parts"

    There should be ~30 of a shiny black dome head screw that's used for the motherboard, card slots, card slot cover.

    I'll try and get a picture up on product page to show where the screws are all used

    Whoops, I didn't mean washers, but hex nuts. I just wanted the handle, and was hoping it had hex nuts so I can fasten it to my itx case (not cerberus) since the handle looks great. Does it come with hex nuts?

    Finally my build is done, I'm really happy with this PC, I got all the stuff I wanted into the case and temperatures are great. Thank you to the maker of the case, to @KSliger for superior support and patience, and @3lfk1ng for advice.

    Here is imgur album;



    Specs are;

    Cerberus X case, Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, Enermax 240 TR4 AIO, Gigabyte X399 Designare EX mobo, 32GB DDR4 G.Skill Flare X 3200MHz, 1x WD Black 4TB, 3x Samsung 960 Evo M.2 NVMe drives, 2x Noctua 120mm Chromax fans in front of the case, Seasonic Focus Plus 850W Gold PSU, Sapphire RX Vega 64 Nitro+ graphics card.

    I had to remove one of the mobo standoffs with a dremel because the motherboard did not have all the standard holes, if I would do it all over again I would go with the X399 Taichi motherboard just to save the standoff.

    Everything fits perfectly, I had to use some force when I put the 3,5HDD in place with the screws and the hinge swing bracket, but it is all good now.

    Going to put the chrome feet on when they arrive togheter with the cover plate on the back next to PCI-E slots, but they are small details : )

    All in all, 10/10, extremely satisfied and most of all this case will last me a long time, the quality is amazing : )

    My pre-production unit didn't so I went to the hardware store and picked up Everbilt M4-0.7 x 25 mm Zinc-Plated Steel Socket Cap Recessed Hex Screw (93 cents for 3) which worked perfectly.

    Cerberus-x red with black top is wonderful...:) i should have patented this color scheme lol...:)

    Your setup is impressive...and globally cerberus-x is impressive..:)

    Thank you, I'm very happy with it! : )

    The noise levels are really good, the card is silent, I can't hear it over the AIO and case fans during hours of gaming.

    Yes this sapphire vega 64 nitro was very well awarded, especially on power level...sapphire seems to have found a proper solution vs coil whine...:)
