If you read the thread, there are quite a few cases that can help with your requirements. Using the search bar on top, try "item.taobao.com" (WITH double quotes), and limit the search to this thread only.

Also, do remember that, most of these cases are cheaper but some are not-that-cheap. Depending on where you live, the shipping cost etc will also add into the cost. At that point you may want to re-consider those so called premium cases.
I'll try out that search method you mentioned. I live in SoCal, would the shipping add up badly?

I live in Asia so it's just what I know (from what I read here). US based forum members should be able to share more details about shipping :)

PCIe x4 to mpcie+sim card?


I guess it's so you can use mobile 4g inside your desktop? I could actually sorta use that, but it's not very clear how to set it up.

Okay i think i will try to buy the Sunmillo T03 with the Help of Superbuy.


Is my calculationabout the Price right? 150 Dollars for the Case and ship to superbuy, and than about 50 Dollars shipping + Fees.
That's about what I paid for shipping to Europe, via the cheaper shipping options. The one I used is tracked to between Superbuy's warehouse and a Superbuy point in the UK, and then it gets shipped untracked via standard post to you. In total, it took 12 days. DHL shipping was an option, but at more than twice the cost.

Some OEM mPCIe WWAN cards does not have SIM card slot built in. This is so laptop mfgs can position the slot somewhere accessible.

But, could I use it in a PC? Plug and play?
Should be. Just shows up as a modem. Consumer cards have this sim slot usually at the back. But mind that 3g/4g networks standards might differ country to country. And why would you wanna do that though? Small wwan routers with wifi 'mifi' is easy, battery backed, and in a pinch you can always use your phone as a hotspot.

With the network confined to your one pc you either need extra sim for your devices or go through the hassle of setting up hotspot in windows. Which is down when your pc loses power.

There's a reason they're not commonplace anymore, just a decade ago you can always count on NEC and Fujitsu and even Sony Vaio to release laptops with sim slots or options for it to be added.

Google Fi gives you as many free data sim cards as you wish!

That thing would work in the US, right?

Thinkpads have SIM slots.

Product page says selling to developers and engineers only because it has lots of compatibility issue.

RMB 88 = USD 12.50
You have confused the Japanese Yen with the Chinese Yuan (or RMB). They both use the same symbol, ¥ .

The NOVA1024 with riser cable and 3 fans goes for $77, before intl shipping fees. Is this good or should I just go for the case for $56?


Would you buy a chinese gpu or just shell out $100+ for Corsair SF?

I found this on 维京智造M1S ( Viking M1S ) Tmall via an Instagram post awhile back (Vikingdom Creation Instagram) which lead me to this modders website (scrolled to the bottom of the homepage and in the bottom right corner was the Tmall link to 至尊地带旗舰店 (Supreme Strip Flagship Store).

It launched recently but I haven't seen much talk about it...

Anyone here bought any modular Flex ATX power supplies from Taobao? What has been your experience with them? I want to know if these modded power supplies are brand new or have signs of wear/use. Would seem sketchy if someone were to sell them as if they were like new but found scratches and rust on them.

They claim to buy new ones, pull them apart, make them modular and then put them back together, so scratches wouldnt say much. a couple have said the ones based off delta 500's are all used. I bought a delta 400 based one, still works a couple months later
