@Necere Are you going to give people warning in here before preorders start?
Do we have anything to worry about really? I mean the preorders will be up before the production run no?

@Necere How likely are you guys to actually sell on out on the production run before the first case ships?

I think it’s likely demand will be higher with all the new releases lately, I know I’m waiting for the case for a new build, im assuming most of the people replying in the thread are as well, really can’t wait another 2-3 months on top of the current wait

I don't think you guys have to worry about it selling out quickly. That's probably the wrong thing to say for marketing purposes, but I've never been one to care about manipulating perception like that.

Usually, the amount of cases we order in one production run lasts us 3-4 months before selling out. I'm sure there's some pent-up demand, plus it's a new version so I expect to get an influx of orders initially, but I think we should still have more than enough available such that you won't have to worry about refreshing the website to try to get your order in or anything like that.

@Necere I'm sorry to bother you, but I wanted to know if you ship worldwide, specifically to Argentina. I wouldn't mind an expensive shipping or long shipping times, but I really want one for my next build. Thank you!

SFFLab ships worldwide, yes.

Im curious, how much are getting affected by the tariffs?

I don't believe it affects us at all. The M1 is made in Taiwan, for one thing, not mainland China. We also ship from Taiwan directly to customers, rather than importing to sell domestically.

Hey Necere, should I wait for the gray version, or is it unlikely this will happen this year? Also, will the no front I/O be an option from the get go, or will I need to buy one and then get the no I/O front panel as a separate part later to fit?

Probably not happening this year, maybe not at all.

So the front I/O bracket looks like this:



I designed it to have an easily swappable faceplate so you can change between full front I/O or power button only. The plan right now is to include front I/O by default, as well as both faceplates so you can run with or without the ports.

The front-most screws are covered by the front panel, right? I had to pop my V4's front panel off to check, but it has no screws beside the USB and audio ports.

Of course. I'm not going to have some unsightly screws blemishing the front of the case :p
Of course, I had to ask ;) . Thanks again for all your efforts. I really appreciate you posting these technical drawings.

That’s slick! Power button only for me.

I don't get the point of USB-C on a desktop PC (yet), but I guess the front I/O looks good regardless. And the no I/O version makes for a nice swap if I ever decide I'm not using the ports for anything besides plugging in a single flashdrive once a month.
