the options for the top pertain to the handle, which they've committed to having. maybe if someone has access to a machine shop, a vent top could be an interesting personal project o_o

Zomg! @PlayfulPhoenix This is going to be epic.

I'm going to do my first open loop water cooling project with Cerberus X2 or X^2.

Well, I love one fact with Cerberus X (older model), which is that it is powder coated. I understood that Cerberus X2 might not be powder coated. Regardless, this is still not a deal breaker. I assume I could perhaps get it powder coated from another service, once I get my hands on it. As long as the metal quality is good enough to get a powder coating.

Also, another thing is, on the Cerberus X (older model), there is absolutely no room to route cables to the back. Just 5mm depth might fix that. I'm not sure, I don't know. But it would be super cool, if it was possible.

This case technically just fits the carry on dimensions for air travel... would I be crazy to consider this for a build I can use as a carry on lol.

anyone here who had experience ordering a Cerberus X or an Ncase M1 / Dan A4 to the UK? how is the shipping/import and tax rate like?

trying to decide on whether i should order this case to my location for the next 3+ years in the UK, or ship them home and build/ship it over during the break @[email protected]

I don't know how it is in the UK, in regards to shipping those cases.

However, Sliger got a distributer in Slovakia. https://www.density.sk
It is advised for European customers to buy Sliger products from there, that includes Cerberus X V1. In order to get a better shipping price and lower import duties.

For Dan A4, Overclockers UK got it. I believe you won't have to pay import duties for this, as it is shipped via a UK shop/UK site. But I am not sure.

When it comes to Ncase M1 v6.1, a user from UK told his experience here.

oh okay, so that's the 3 scenarios i'm expecting actually o_o thanks!
(i'm hoping the CX2 would hit OCUK, but i think that'll take even more time after launch to happen. kinda want to avoid having to deal with calling the post office for import tax in the last case ,_,)

cards of that length should fit. the case (as we last saw it) already fit CEB motherboards


(the 2080 is a little over reference length, so you get the idea)

as for the 3-slot deal, that's up to motherboard choice, since it'll depend on how many cards would be going in there, and which board would allow for all of those you'll need
