    I ordered 12:43, I got a status update saying "In Bearbeitung (Wartet)" (In Progress (Pending)). Not sure if this means that I manage to snatch or not? When I added the item to the basket I did not see the later shipment date. I called CaseKing but they were unable to verify at this moment if I was in the first batch or not and asked me to call back in 2 hours.

    Hmm, last this I heard from CaseKing was a confirmation e-mail of the order, but looking at "My orders" page under my account now shows "The order has been cancelled". Guess I got to the checkout there too late :|

    I managed to snatch a silver (Assuming casekings didn't do anything weird, as there was still some left after I ordered). Any tips about parts? I'm gonna buy a i5-7600k for it. I think I read somewhere that Cryorig C7 is the way to go for CPU cooler? I looked at GIGABYTE GA-H270N-WIFI for motherboard, don't know if there's anything better..? Any suggestions on PSU?

    Can anyone verify if CaseKing and Overclockers have seperate warehouses because they both belong to CaseKingdom? If they use the same warehouse it could mean that all orders made on the CaseKing website can be ignored since the've been placed long after the case was sold out on Overclockers due to outage.

    Also my order at CaseKing is currently being processed.

    On overclockers my order still says pending but I got a shipping email so I think I'm in the clear!

    im thinking that mobo or asus Z270I strix or MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon, really want 2 m.2 slots so leading towards asus unless someone else brings out a new board with 2 m.2's

    I personally think it's a very easy choice for PSU - Corsair SF450, especially when you don't plan on putting a 6-8-10 core CPU and a Titan in - I got a SF450 myself, I might be biased...

    I see that its modular. Does this create any problems..? (Modular means there's a lack of flexibility where the connector starts)

    Great. Overclockers just mailed me canceling my order. Apparently it sold out 5mins after 12 and the server just didnt update. After calling the dude he was very polite but stated i should have called 2mins after 12 to secure a case. Wtf. They cant handle traffic on their servers and now im without a case.

    On a brighter note: gg Daniel for having such a desirable case.


    What a Day...

    I feel I'll be receiving that very email shortly also. I have 4 order confirmations and yet I only ordered one.... Waiting to see what they have to say.

    Guess I'll be getting an Ncase, unless some kind soul wants to sell me a Black one....

    EDIT: yes all cancelled. I ordered within a minute of them being available. ugggghhhhhhhh

    12:51 only, probably too late even though the silver ones were showing as available a while after that as well. I called CK and they were able to see that my payment is shown as failed which is why the order got cancelled, even though I got a successful payment notification from PayPal as usual and everything. The guy I spoke to said he'll check up with the financial people to make sure the payment's gone through and put me in line for a black unit in the batch instead of a refund and re-order hassle.

    Would've been awesome to get the case now, but I've successfully replaced my previously failed desktop computer with an ultrabook for close to two years now so I can manage a few more months :)

    Congrats to Dan by the way for the overwhelming success of the project, I'm pretty sure things got waaaay more intense that anyone could've anticipated even a year ago. Great accomplishment indeed! Can't wait this thread to turn into a build-showcase.

    I literally had the black case in my cart but I couldn't place the order from where I live.. Dan I must say good job on the distribution;)

    Anyway.. I already got an Ncase on the way! Sure, It's a little bigger but I'm not gonna worry about temps, thermal throttling and noise anymore!

    Maybe next time

    For those complaining about site load, most companies have this issue, even the big ones - it isn't feasible for companies to invest in systems for what would be a very short periods of time when the load will be too much. It would be nice if they could put things in place for things like this, but believe me, it costs time, money and staff and in the end, they lose a lot of money for very temporary benefit.

    Just picked up my case from OcUK. Just an hour drive home to go. Excited for the build tonight!

    Guy was a bit shocked by the hype.

    Apparently the website oversold by 50 and there are 100 on the waiting list.

    They got 70. (I'm assuming this is just for the black one)

    So glad I bought mine off another months ago for fear of this exact situation, and at price too.

    Okay, so I got my order in around 6:25 and got a shipping email, but I'm hearing that people who got their orders in before me are getting cancellation emails..If I got a shipping email do you guys think I should be good or is there still a possibility it can get canceled. This is off Overclockers btw.

    From this thread it looks like there is demand for at least 1-2K more cases. Dan, how mamy cases will you order for the next batch?
    By the way, thank you for my case, got it on Saturday, it's so awesome :D will participate in the HoF contest as soon as I put some LEDs in there!
    Asus GTX 1080 Strix compatibility confirmed, it was even really easy to install except for PCIe power which has to be routed behind the front panel.

    Does anyone want to sell his case? Preferable black?

    It does seem like there is still a large demand for the case. Is it possible for some kind of preorder system on OverclockersUK or some independent system? Waking up at 3AM just to come empty handed does not seem ideal and judging from the amount of US backers it would be 3-6AM for a large number of people.
    No need for the condescending sarcasm, Dan is just one man. Not sure why you bothered to attempt to add to cart (which I'm not even sure you did) since there was a good amount of time you likely knew OCUK did not ship to Japan (you could have had a forwarding service like some users suggested, if so). But with that being said, Dan should look into other distributors that ship to and handles locations that OCUK/CK does not.

    As a Kickstarter backer, I'm pretty sad seeing people who ordered today get shipping notifications when I've gotten radio silence :(

    I'm with you :( i thought that we will get the cases first than Overclockers but it doesn't seem that way. I'm really anxious to get it but i know i need to wait for my turn, and hope to keep seeing more pictures of Dan Builds :D

    I'd like to think it would be quicker to produce more as the equipment has already been made to produce them. I've not commented before, but have silently monitored this forum for months. I ordered from Overclockers at 12:12, Got my confirmation, then received a cancellation a few hours later telling me it would be June, until they got more in. This seems like a long time, assuming both DAN and Lian-Li agree to produce a ton more based on demand, why would production take so long?

    Whats most frustrating is when dan kept saying his backers have top priority and now it feels like a kick in the stomach seeing others get shipping orders through from overclockers. even picking it up same day they went live.

    Agree. We funded the possibility of the overclockers orders. :( Oh well. Looks like he's shipping soon. I still support Dan fully for bringing this product to light.

    Look at it this way: if you are a US backer, we paid roughly $250 or so depending on exchange rate per case. Up thread someone said that for a US buyer from one of the resellers, it was $313 before shipping. That is assuming you were lucky enough to snag one in the 2 minutes they were available at whatever ungodly hour the sales went live. So we saved money on our cases sort of akin to an "investment" in a company (which is really what a kickstarter fund is), and we can sit back and relax and know we are getting our case.

    Plus, we have bragging rights over all these n00bs who are saying they waited "months" to make their overclockers order. Ha. Months. ;)

    Of course we all want for him to ship, i would love help him if i could, but some Dan as always been there for us, i know he will come and give some great news :) If you are reading this Dan, could you just give a little update in which country you are right now?
