Super Magical Detailer

literally refreshing my email 99 times a day hoping to see a shipping notice for my case heh
This is good to know, I'm not sure there is anything I can do to fix this. It might be related to the users' preference to opn in emails or not.I actually checked my order after reading through this thread and turns out it has been shipped with tracking, an update email just hasn't been sent. Might be worth checking your order on the website!
Etsy is a good spot to search for custom stuff. Not sure of your style but here's an example.Gonna need some recommendations on a custom keycap. I prefer more minimal looking stuff as opposed to the clunky figurine. Backlight support is a must.
Unfortunately I haven't had the ability to dig in yet. I've had the flu so progress has been slow from that and the fact I had to order a new pump/res that just came last night. Hopefully get my build log up this weekend!
Lol consider pics requested! Surely you can't have such a long detailed experience without having a few quality pics.Received and built mine today. Today is just a proof of concept though, I have no custom cables and I actually have a FormD T1 v2 coming in on Saturday that I actually want to build in. I could've saved this and/or sold it, but I just decided screw it, I'll build it twice. I really don't wanna take and show pictures, it's so ugly and bad right now.
Brand new build, my last/current build is currently being shipped across the country, probably destroyed. It was a full custom loop in a O11D Mini.
Components: MSI Unify Z690i, GSkill 7600 DDR5, 13900k, 4090 FE, SF750, Phanteks 240MM T30 Glacier One
Build quality is great. A little scratch prone and I was being as careful as I could - still ended up with minor scratches.Immediately one of the thumbnuts fell off and into the duct below my AC, so lost into the abyss - thank you for including an extra.
The whole thumbnut thing threw me for a loop on the whole PSU thing - I had to redo it 3 times before I got it going - I ended up just screwing it in with two screws and left the thumbnut really loose - if I didn't, it would rub against the spine and I didn't like that. It also did not go in the railway unless it was very loose.
The rail system itself is very.. scary. I ended up scratching it a bit due to having to build this by myself and trying to first do it horizontally, but ended up dropping it in. The scratching sound.. hurts. I had to really loosen up the screws to have it go in. I literally had it in and it dropped like 3 inches down, hard lol.. but otherwise, it works?? I didn't bother tightening since I'll probably be taking this all apart soon.
Little complaints:The riser cable was very tight and a bit hard to work with with the 4090 - I didn't do the GPU standoff mod (didn't know if it'd fit). My standard DP cable did not fit in the IO underneath but it's probably because I didn't install that GPU bracket thing as I'll probably be removing it again soon. The including adapter fit.
The rail system could be more elegant, but it works and I guess you only need it to work only a couple of times :')
I hate SATA cables/SATA IO
The front USB C is not working but it could just be my lack of properly connecting it? I'll check later - would be cool to have this in the back so that I could use a dock or something behind the PC - even better if it supported thunderbolt but I don't know about the feasibility of that
I dislike the rubber feet that I have to stick onto it with 3M. This stuff is never reliable in the long run - maybe I didn't realize that the aluminum feet was also compatible with the vertical case - I think I thought it was just for horizontal. Either way, I wish I got those.
The 8x2 panel screws could also be a more elegant solution - more opportunities to strip the screws or mess something up.
The AIO tubing looks.. rough but it works when I leave it pressing against the glass . I don't know how I'd fix this issue.
All in all, good case, great case for water cooling. That was my original intention, but with how efficient 4090s are and how good the Phanteks 240 T30 is, I think this is fine.
Well, I tried taking a picture but my phone froze. I'll update later with pics if requested.
Thanks Taylor, great job on making this happen.
