I dunno about you guys, but I have never been able to register an account on taobao for purchasing. i am in the UK and I want to get on there somehow
I used superbuy to buy from Taobao. They buy it on your behalf, ship it to the superbuy warehouse (consolidate it with anything else you brought), then ship it to you.

Most people here use a purchasing agent like Superbuy or Bhiner. It's more expensive, but it dramatically eases the purchase process, and allows for global shipping, product inspection upon arrival at the agent warehouse, etc.

I ordered the case when it was announced. I wanted to downsize my current rig to the sandwich layout, but all common ones case do not fit 2,7 slot gpu with 3 fans. I hope that case will fit it perfectly.
The parcel is on its way, so it should reach me within 2 weeks.

Anyone know the length of riser cable used on K55, Mucai X1 or similar 6.7 sandwich-style clones? The riser looks like this from a company called ADT.

Can someone please recommend a good taobao shop for custom length cables (atx, 8pin) and maybe a good source for PCI-E 4.0 riser cables (i don´t have high hopes for that one tho). Thanks!

For custom length cables, I have used this "YY Custom Made" cables (for my Corsair SF600).
I will use them again in the future if needed.
Check them out.

Not Taobao but Etsy, DreambigbyRayMOD is extremely popular on reddit. I have seen a lot of people using his cables and they are happy with the quality and price.

Did you go through superbuy? How did you give them instructions for color and measurements etc? Interested to know as I might do the same.
I did not use Superbuy. Actually I have never used Superbuy before.
I am in China and speak Chinese. I used AliWangWang app to communicate with the seller directly.
When I placed the order, I listed out all the instructions. (One reminder:- when you specify the length of a cable, specify whether the length means absolute end-to-end or it is just the cable itself excluding the 2 end connectors).

You can give your superbuy agent instructions and he/she will tell the seller. From my recent experience tho... just get in contact with the seller directly. Use google translate if you have to. Even I with my basic Chinese could communicate well enough. It just saves so much hassle and back-forth communication.

I suppose, the agent fee that you pay to them would include services to communicate with the seller?
