Generally speaking, not naming any names whatsoever, it only takes a moment to log in to a forum and post an update, any update, whether it be good or bad. If a person cannot even commit to such a trivial task, you have to wonder whether it is even worth your while to keep your optimism about the project. Again, I'm just speaking in general. It applies to every project. You can make the decision whether it applies here or not.

I made a comment the Spring of last year to say that I've unsubscribed from this thread, due to the obvious fact that the project was not going anywhere from a creator who has visibly lost interest. I've been attacked by many, even through private messages. Well, I've come back today to see if I would be fortunate enough to be proven wrong, but alas it seems that my decision was right.

Good luck.
Life gets busy. A PC case can easily lose priority in the grand scheme of things. Patience.

I haven't been following the project for a while, but browsing facebook I came across this case that is very similar to orthrus



Does anyone know anything about this alternative case to the project?

I'm really not sure on the 'etiquette' of discussing competing products potentially based off of Luke's original design in this thread...

That said, those images are easy enough to reverse search and find the origin of should you want to.

It should be fine honestly, comparing a similar product is pretty much the norm, go to any case thread here and you will see endless "this looks like a X case"

That case is only superficially similar. The internal layout and component support are completely different, and have more in common with the Ghost with tophats or one of the Sliger SM cases.

Damn, what happened with this project at the end? My wish is to build something like this.
I can handle to customize my case, not big deal, i think :)

Can anyone explain to me where to get, if possible this long NVlink Cable?
And if I create cable on my own, do I lost some data, latency...because longer link cable?

NVlink cables this long don't exist. you would have to make your own. The SLI cables are easy they are on ebay in the liheat store.

As for the case itself @LukeD hasn't provided an update for quite some time so we don't actually know.

Ok, thanks. I know for SLI cables... Looks like I need to create my own Nvlink cable and test everything. Will do this now for December holidays.
Have 1 Nvlink on side. Case is not big deal.
Thanks Ellimist ;)
