    Quick update:

    - We finally received the funds from Indiegogo,
    - We sent and paid in USD currency for most of the components which will be delivered from outside the EU-zone,
    - We are waiting for an exchange company to exchange funds from USD currency to PLN to start ordering process for parts which will be manufactured in Poland (most of Sentry elements),
    - We turned off the InDemand order option on our Indiegogo campaign page, but it turns out it is not a toggle on-off process, and we have to wait for up to 3 working days until Indiegogo will review our request and turn it off.

    Stay tuned for more updates.

    Right now you will have to wait for us to deliver all cases to backers, because we will start thinking about what's next only afterwards.

    Note that case manufacturing is not our main line of business, so making another batch may not happen right away.



    From other news, Wendell from Level1Techs checked PCI-E 4.0 compatibility of our riser:



    UFD Tech in their news video yesterday was talking about risers crashing on 4.0, so I assume that either no risers support it fully right now and there will be a need for new 4.0 spec for risers or AMD will have to fix it in their AGESA BIOS.

    Small update on the compatibility spreadsheet

    Super & 5700 series GPUs were added as well as some info on the CPU coolers.

    If there's something we've missed/omitted, please let us know.
