I'm going to mount it on a bracket under the desk. I have the opposite requirement. That the ports be at the top to work better with that. Its an interesting question where is best to put them.
Well, most people who get build a sff want it to be somewhat portable...

It's been about two months since the last update. Starting to get slightly concerned.

Hey Guys, yep, things are very slowly moving along. I'm actually in the middle of moving so the precious little time I have unfortunately im dedicating right now to packing things etc. As soon as I move (end of Nov) I plan on dedicating the time I'll have off to the project.

Wait, so you're telling me that you're completely blind to the comments right above you, that you haven't seen pretty much any of the comments on the last 3-5 pages asking the exact same thing, and the fact that luke is going through serious life issues, and literally answered when he'll try to recover from it all and start to work on the manufacturing deal on the comment *right above* yours, yet you come here and pester him literally immediately after all this? Jesus Christ man...

If you want to know the price just look at the other cases being sold here, so roughly around $200-250
Custom cases with small production numbers unfortunatelly cost more than cases from big companies who can just make cases in bulk and advertise them at the same time.
As for when, if LukeD were ready with everything right now then I expect a few (6?) months

These are estimates from someone who has no idea what it takes to produce something.
If someone does know please educate us

They cost more than cases produced in quantities of quadruple digits, but $200-250 still leaves room for a very, very large profit margin. Of course, it all comes down to the complexity of the design, but every design can be optimized.

I've already reserved some money to be able to buy one as soon as it's out, that way I won't have to worry if he isn't able to produce enough to maintain availability lol.

Same here! I got a stash of cash hidden away from the world, and my spontaneous cash expenditures haha... I have already given in to the new Geeek A60 case, and Luke's case will be mine as well! =D
