Or maybe a down hook extension adapter connector..., maybe better due different power insert plugs US or EuropeI'm posting this here because the current Sentry owner master race may be interested.
As you know, the C14 connector on the back causes the power cable to stick out pretty far. You can get one of these down angle cables to alleviate that problem like I have. Keep in mind they're expensive as hell but are worth it if you're into making your stuff look good.
Thx for the feedback. We will investigate if we can improve something in the fields you mentioned.I'm one of the lucky Sentry 1.x (white) owners and after ~1 year and 2 systems in it I found some areas of improvement that might not have been mentioned.
The lip on the toppanel, that slides below the frontpanel and holds it down creates kind of a dent in the center of the line where the panels meet up. I fixed it a little by bending the lip down a tiny amount. It's better but not perfect. Maybe removing some of the paint on the lip makes the line more straight but I'm still reluctant to do irreversible mods to the case and it's only really prominent when viewed from certain angles.
The other thing is the strip of metal between the PCI-E slot-plates. I know it's standard, but blower-style cards really benefit from bigger exhaust-area and the strip covers quite some area, that GPU-makers "illegaly" use. It would be a simple mod to grind it out but as before I'm not at that point yet.
I'm really stoked about 2.0 although I'll most certainly stick with my 1.x
great job guys and good luck with the next version
We want to fix it by making denser ventilation rather than increasing the size of the case.I think it would be great if the limit of CPU cooler height could be increased by 1-2mm so the noise turbulence of Cryorig C7 or similar cooler could be reduced.
This sounds awesome! Good WorkWe want to fix it by making denser ventilation rather than increasing the size of the case.
We cannot go much lower with the motherboard - We could use imperial 0.25"/6.35 mm stand-offs instead of metric 7 mm ones we use right now, or maybe a 6.5 mm ones, if we can source such, but we'd have to see if that doesn't cause additional issues. And that'd be only 0.5 mm added.
We don't want to add options, we want a complete package.wonder if you sell that stand separate?
We needed a space for 120mm AIO water cooling, and at the same time we wanted to keep external dimensions of the case while still using standard, easy to buy and replace components (like this vandal switch). If we would keep the previous position of the power button, then we would need it to be shorter (something like 10-12mm) to not collide with the AIO radiator. We couldn't find such button, so we were in a place where we had to decide if we will manufacture our own PCB with power switch, or if we will stay with the one we have now. Our own switch would be something dedicated only for Sentry, and in case of failure you would have to buy it directly from us. This would be against the philosophy of Sentry. We want to use as much standard PC components as we can, so if in future someone will manufacture some more quality hardware (like better power button, better riser, etc.), you will be able to use it. With dedicated power button such thing wouldn't be possible.May I ask why you decided to move the power button to the center as I personally preferred the previous placement. Not a big deal but just curious. Would still buy it though.
