    Think you should just repost this in the faqs itll help out alot.

    DAN Cases UG (haftungsbeschränkt) will ship to the countries listed below. If your country is not on the list, please contact us following a successful campaign, and we will find a solution for you.

    And just mention that they should pledge first (if thats what you meant).

    congrats dondan.

    I am really gutted. I can't buy the case right now, due to some emergency costs. I hope I will be able to get one in the future.

    I've posted a question in the FAQ so that when he posts the answer he can just use the statement above. Hopefully he puts the FAQ answer in soon. I'll bet a lot of people were initially confused when they didn't see their country listed (I was one of them)

    Come to think of it, I doubt it matters. The kickstarter campaign will probably be fully pledged by the time he gets around to answering the question on the FAQ anyway. LOL. Congrats dondan!

    Oh and great video on Kickstarter...very professional and the "climax" at the end with the controller next to the case was great. I found myself asking "is it really THAT compact" ?

    Backed! Bounced back and forth between black and silver, but chose silver in the end. Because I always go for black :p Less visible dust and fingerprints will be nice for a change! Happy to have backed below the 125.000 $ goal, feels like I helped making this happen :p Congratz to DonDan! Amazing to have reached the goal so quickly, you must be very happy and proud! Alright now my watch begins...See you guys in the fall!

    Congrats on getting funded so quickly! I've been waiting for months to finally back this and I did so the moment I could. I can't wait to get mine later this year!

    Cheers Dan!

    The problem with Cerebrus is that mATX isn't much smaller than standard ATX. Only a move to mITX begins to yield a significant difference from ATX cases, otherwise it just isn't enough IMHO.

    Just a little note to dondan I don't know if he'll see this but: the timeline on dan-cases.com says 08.05.2016-->case available on kickstarter. Shouldn't this be 29.05.2016? Or was it posted on kcikstarter then but not backable until today? Congratz again!

    I wasn't lying about ripping this build out of my fractal node 202 (the case that I thought was kinda, just a little bit easier to carry around in my back pack (it is skinnier than my ncase m1 v2 though), but is only just 5lbs lighter than my ncase m1 v2 which was more bulky). Yes the fractal node 202 is hella heavy since it is mostly made of steel / plastic not aluminum like this dan a4 :) image.jpg :) :) and now patiently waiting for this dan a4 case to arrive in my birthday month :)

    Damn backed both black and silver. GG

    Also question: Will the first 1000 come with badges like the ncase?

    I feel very randomly lucky here ...

    Just today happened upon this case/project for the first time & immediately backed it.

    Very exciting!

    Badges? You mean this one: "Every A4-SFX will feature a sticker with a production number. It will not be possible to reserve a number. Every case will be assigned a random number between 1 and 1500."

    Been dreaming up small cases for a while now(have an sg05). I don't have to dream anymore.
    Pledge and waiting on Dan to get info to ship to Mauritius.

    This will be the smallest full gfx case until a smaller mobo form factor becomes the norm, along with smaller gfx and psu

    A carrying strap that can also hold a keyboard would be nice

    You could put the strap around your neck and call it a neck top. Or when you sit down put it on your lap and it can be called a laptop! Genius!

    Wouldn't be a good idea. Dan sensibly limited the amount of cases, extended goals are usually employed for campaigns with no upper limit to drum up support in latter phases Or when the creators get too cocksure - careless use of extended goals thought up on the go is a sign of badly managed campaign.
