    Watched it while working so must've missed it. What did he say? Did he say why?

    he's mentioned it in several youtube videos actually.

    its because their manufacturer [ Lian Li ] ,which works with SFFLab & Josh, is moving from Taiwan to mainland China.

    this also explains SkyReach prices on ebay.

    since you can't just order a SkyReach case for $199 anymore, directly from SFFLab, a seller on ebay probably won't accept $199 for it.

    This is news to me, as SFFLab says they will be restocked.

    Josh has clarified this previously.

    put simply- his info is correct, while SFFLab's info is incorrect.

    The Skyreach 4 MINI page still has the "BUY NOW" button linked to SFFLab's page and that incorrect message.

    Josh needs to remove that link and advise his prospective buyers of the situation.

    Makes sense. I had never seen a clarification.

    Here's the ebay listing. Guy's asking $700 now.

    IMO, the listing is bogus. Calls out stock photos and 2-3 week to process. Guy is probably behind on a paying a bookie and needs a quick $700 so he doesn't lose a finger.

    For a s4m, you'll need a gpu that fits and find a way to plug it in

    I put in an offer a few days ago, the seller turned me down and told me that he received a bid from a buyer at $800, but he could sell me a case he made himself for half price. Surprisingly that "$800 buyer" did not go through still, which makes me think he doesn't own a NFC and is instead using it as a front to flip his custom cases. Dude is trying to play some Wolf of Wall Street fast moves on people.

    I think I am going to get a MC600 and just sulk around here until Josh makes a new batch or I can be lucky and respond to a buy/sell/trade post before the many other people circling that sub like a hawk
    blisscalintz and NinoPecorino like this.

    It cost me $100 to have a Corsair 900D fully powder coated and that's a 100 liter case.

    respectfully disagreeing. since there's a pickup option, that's evidence they do have it.

    if you get to pick your own custom powdercoat color, why do you think it would be so fast to process ?

    let's say i decide to buy it right now, & want a neon green SkyReach. how would they already have actual photos, of a neon green SkyReach case, before that color was even requested ?

    it might take a while to do a custom powdercoat.

    finally, in regards to " overnight " shipping price, they have a pickup option at 80% off.

    I think you are in cahoots with this seller.
