How's the progress coming, guys?
Well you're busy guys, it's understandable!Sorry guys for not answering so often in the last couple of days, but we both have a busy time at our daytime jobs, and our free time is very limited.
No worries. Any updates are appreciated.While packaging, we decided we have to order some additional stuff which should be included with sentry (carton insets, more small foil bags, silica gels, etc.). Last of those pieces have delivery time on next Thursday, so if there won't be another delay, then next Friday will be the date of sending 1st package for external review. I can't tell you guys anything more, because since this is our hobby project, we can't spend on it more then 3-4 hours a day (after work ofc). After August, when we will be at preordering stage, then everything should go a lot smoother. Right now, 15.07 is the new date of sending the package to Linus from LTT.
Haven't seen this one yet, thanks.
Would this case be able to house a graphics card that is 308mm in length? The site shows a diagram where a 305mm gpu fills up the length of the case.
EDIT: I'd like to use a Sapphire Fury Nitro
Do you guys have a online store platform for taking and managing orders and payments? Will it be added to your current website? Will you only be accepting paypal? What about Amazon Payments? I'm not sure if that's available in Poland. Sorry for a million questions, I just cannot wait. I will definitely be first in line! Hopefully you guys will have enough units available and don't have supply shortages like some large companies *cough* Nvidia *cough*
9gag is where all the inbred mutants congregate.Oh god the replies make my skin crawl. Not sure if posting to 9gag for publicity is worth the hassle.
www.imgur.com might be a great place for publicity if you manage to make it to the front page. I would upvote your post immediately. As long as you post this in story form like you did on reddit you could probably make it to the front page. Might gain some subs that way.After we've dropped info on reddit, we've had sudden boost in subscriptions so we've just decided to try some other random places and 9gag came to mind.
And yeah, it's pretty bad place in the net to even talk with people about this since when you respond too much to question you may event get your posts randomly and unknowingly hidden from being viewed.
Anyway I've still got some tricks up my sleeve for publicity, but I'm constantly thinking of some more. If any of you have ideas then please share
It's honestly not that hard to get to the front page. Been there many times myself. As long as the pictures are put into the form of a story with descriptions like what was done on Reddit, I am sure it will reach the front page. The front page is temporary anyway, but if it's liked a bunch of times it can get anywhere from 1,000 views to 100,000 views. It's a quick way to possibly get some subs. It doesn't hurt to explore easy avenues. If it doesn't make it to the front page, I'd honestly be very surprised.I was just thinking the same thing, although didn't want to suggest it as getting to the front page is a feat!
Especially on a channel with the sheer amount of subs Linus has.I'm sure you'll get many more subscribers once some reviews have been posted on YouTube and other forums.
Do you think the EVGA 1080 FTW would fit into this case? It's 266.7 mm long by 128.6 mm tall. I've looked at all the blower models and they're pretty crappy quality. It's not worth it to save a little bit for the lower quality.
Oh, so it's the connectors, not the actual card size. The non-FTW versions are roughly the same base/boost clocks, just without the pretty RGB lighting (which is why I wanted it, lol). But if the non-FTW editions will definitely fit then I'm sold. I've had nothing but terrible luck with ASUS customer service and have always had a good experience with EVGA, so I'm sticking with them this time around. Was considering a blower card for this, but the parts are such garbage on those. Going to pretty much have this in the vertical position 100% of the time.From what I can see, the FTW editions will have hard time fitting due to the PCB oversize / PEG connectors, however there's two non-FTW version with ACX 3.0 coolers which will definitely fit.
I have literally no idea why people keep asking about fitting those oversized and overpowered gpus inside
I think it would be better to post this during the day (it's midnight where I am). That site is a lot more active during that time. Also, you forgot to put a link to your website at the bottom of your post.Thanks for the tip guys - I've posted the story image on imgur here: imgur.com / YeF2CrZ (can't post direct link not to embed it) let's see how it works.

Just some food for thought: if updates on this website are so scarce at this moment, when the project is getting traction... what would happen once you have people's money? IMO, side-job or not, you should try to focus on this.
I can only imagine that if you dedicate so little time to update a topic on a forum (something that takes barely 5 minutes) that might potentially bring you hundreds of sales, the chances of you showing more interest and updates once you have accomplished your goal (Getting the $$$$) are pretty scarce to non-existing.
They owe you nothing. They have jobs and are doing this as a side project as a hobby and are doing the best they can with the time they have. You're coming off as a bit rude.Just some food for thought: if updates on this website are so scarce at this moment, when the project is getting traction... what would happen once you have people's money?

For the GPU and side-panel installation steps on page 18 & 19 (and possible the side panel removal stop on page 4), it might be better to reorient the case view to the orientation used on page 15 to avoid obscuring the GPU riser location and screw hole location. The side panel installation step on page 19 may also benefit from an arrow or inset view clarifying that the front bracket of the side panel is intended to sit behind the front faceplate rather than in front (possibly duplicated on page 4 for the side panel removal step to prime the reader to pay attention to it's location).Little update and call for feedback.
I'm currently doing a manual for Sentry and it would be awesome if you could check it out and give us your thoughts, especially about what you may not understand.
The manual is in Work In Progress state so it's still incomplete.
Most recent file will be held here: http://zaber.com.pl/sentry/manual.pdf
I think You are really unfair with this one. Your statement seems like someone will get paid for doing nothing and thinks only about money. For the last 2 years, everyday after 8-12 hours a day at work, we spent 3-5 hours designing new prototypes. From the start we were saying that this is a hobby project, on which we don't expect to earn a lot of money. When you start such project, you don't know if it will succeed. We still don't know it, because we're before pre-ordering stage. If we had such knowledge, then we would switch our jobs to part-time jobs and SENTRY probably would be designed in about half of the year. Right now because of the high costs of the production, we don't expect to earn more money on Sentry, then we are earning at our standard jobs. This is why we will keep working on this project in our free time, without changing our jobs system. Because of that, sometimes we will have delays with answering, but with production, we will try to make it as fast as possible (6-7 weeks after preorder), and it won't be 6 or 7 months, like some other manufacturers do.
I think that the topic has enough info we can give you about the project status and the only thing you'd like to know more would be exact price and launch date and we can't give you that yet. Why? Because we won't know them until we fully establish supply chain for manufacturing including packaging.
Figuring that out is incremental because sometimes you just can't decide on things without having other pieces of the puzzle ready. This is one of the reasons why it takes so much time.
The second one is that there's tons of companies that sell products and services they cannot really provide in feasible quality and timely manner or their staff is constantly changing thus staying inexperienced, which makes even ordering something custom a time consuming process, even if you precisely know and tell them what you want.
Time on our end isn't really a problem when we take orders, because then we just gather them, order supplies and take vacation when they arrive to process all of them and ship the product. If orders are going to be way over what we can process ourselves then we'll process them with our company staff as a big project.
They owe you nothing. They have jobs and are doing this as a side project as a hobby and are doing the best they can with the time they have. You're coming off as a bit rude.
