Product Description

The new Bullet series from CaseLabs: Small, powerful, deadly. Small cases that pack a BIG punch.

Bullet was designed from the ground up to provide optimum air flow and excellent cable management in a smaller format case. If you air-cool or use AIO coolers, this case was built for you. The BH8 is however big enough for a custom loop with proper planning. 

Our design goals for Bullet were:

  • Keep the case compact – much more so that our previous designs (20-40L)
  • Allow for very clean cable management.
  • Provide excellent cooling for air coolers (and AIO systems).
  • Provide good access, so you can get hands in and work on it. A common complaint of many SFF cases is that they can be very difficult to work with.
  • Provide the ability to show off the interior of you build, take advantage of case lighting, sleeving, etc. In this respect, we incorporated one of the most popular optional features of the S3 – dual side windows.
  • Provide a case that can get handled a lot without fear of damaging it or the components inside. To that effect, the drives are shock mounted and the MB & GPU are mounted horizontally to reduce stress when using heavy GPU’s. The exterior is a “hard shell” design made from heavy .090” (2.3mm) aluminum (the front and rear panels are made from .063” – 1.6mm). Optional handles are available.
  • Front panel USB 3.0, HD Audio included

All this at a much more affordable price.

  1. Very nice

    Posted by Matt on 14th Oct 2017

    This is my first high end case and I'm glad I went with Caselabs this case stupidly nice for the price and with the modularity it is really nice to work with the only complaint is that I wish the screws for the main cover were thumb screws other than that I would recommend this case any time.

  2. awsome case!

    Posted by Jeff on 14th Oct 2017

    This is a wonderful case! It fits all the goodies I needed in a case. The craftmanship is well thought out. I’ve always wanted a custom case as this. I stopped looking after finding caselabs!

  3. Size Matters

    Posted by John on 11th Oct 2017

    Good things comes in small packages. This was my first case from CaseLabs and it was a great experience. I jumped the gun and pre ordered which I saved a little money by doing so but I had to change the top of the case because they offered some new options. It was extremely easy to do so by email and I received a confirmation that the changes were made. No damage during shipping due to excellent packing, even though everyone knows Linus prefers soft foam over hard foam.

    I ordered the white case with the extra lighting mounts, and for the top of the case I ordered half window and the other half the 120/140 fan mount. No need for tempered glass because the plastic used for the windows is a very thick high quality plastic that won't bend and comes protected with paper that you have to peel off.

    The only con I can think of is the amount of screws needed to install and remove the top shell of the case. No big deal but I am used to a door with a hinge. Won't take any stars of for that because I knew that when I purchased it.

    To sum up it's a great case that's packed with features take that doesn't take up a lot of space. I wanted a Horizontal Mother board layout that would support my Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler and look great doing so.

    I don't always write reviews, but when I do I hope they are a little helpful.

  4. Great Case

    Posted by Kyle on 14th Sep 2017

    I've wanted one of these bullet cases for a long time ever since I saw them at PDXLAN, but my current build would not fit in a BH7.
    When they announced the BH8 and it would support my Strix 1080 ti with front fans and my NH-D15 I was estatic.
    The HDD and SSD brackets work great, I would connect them before putting the bracket in the case because it starts to get cramped depending on how your orientate the drive cages.
    The acrylic is crystal clear and the lighting mount works really well because of the angle it allows you to install your lights.
    Depending on how big your power supply is and how if you fill up both HDD and SSD brackets, it gets really cramped for cable management. But at least the basement conceals it.
    The build quality is very nice, it was well worth the wait.

  5. Perfect

    Posted by Ryan S. on 13th Sep 2017

    I currently own a BH7, and I wanted to upgrade to the BH8 for the extra bit of space I needed to fit a custom loop. When I received my BH7 from a reseller, it had a small amount of damage on it. When I contacted Caselabs, they sent me a new case bottom free of charge. When they did that, I posted that they had earned a customer for life.

    I received my BH8 today, and it is perfect - no damage from shipping (they do a really good job of packaging their products).

    Not only that, but the Bullet series cases are so well thought-out that it's impossible to fault them. It seems like they've literally thought of everything. For example, with the BH8 there is now a 5.25" bay on the front. The cover is retained by two 8mm nuts (Like the front fan mount is). I briefly wondered how I was going to mount my Aquaero 6 Pro to it. In the bag of hardware I found the mounting arms for the devices - so if you're not using the bay, you're not wasting space inside the case. At first I only saw the full-length arms, which the Aquaero doesn't need. Once I opened it I found shorter arms as well. Then came the screws to attach the Aquaero to the arms. I initially saw the included size 6-32 screws and thought "Well Aquacomputer is a German company, surely they'll use metric screws". Before I rummaged through the box to find M3 screws, I found the included bag of M3 screws. I know this is a tiny detail, but it goes to show how well thought-out Caselabs' products are. They seem to have considered every scenario in which their customers will use the product and plan for each.

    If you're not familiar with the Bullet line of cases, they consist of a Front Panel, Rear Panel, Top Clamshell, Bottom Clamshell, the Motherboard Tray, and the Motherboard Tray Mounting Brackets. The beauty of the way this case is designed is that you can remove the top or bottom clamshells without having to unplug fans/accessories mounted to them. There is an obvious exception if you are using the HDD Tray, or now if you have something mounted to the 120.2 mount on the bottom of the case. You can remove the HDD Tray panel from the outside, which gives you the room required to unplug those drives and still use the clamshell design. What this means though is that there is no clunky disassembly for upgrades/cleaning/maintenance. You actually could run this case as a testbench if you leave the top clamshell off, since the upper fan/rad mounts are attached to the front and back panel. Same with the lighting mounts.

    However, you'll want to be careful to not remove the top and bottom clamshells at the same time - the case uses a small motherboard tray mount that the screws on the clamshell seam keep in place - if you remove both, the tray will come out as well. I actually prefer this design because you can completely disassemble this case, and there are no screws or other hardware on the front or rear face of the case.

    The build quality of Caselabs cases is incredible, too. The clamshells, and likely the front and rear panels, are all aluminum. There is no plastic inside this case at all. If you're considering any other case, I highly recommend you reconsider. Their support alone is worth doing business with them.

    I believe this is probably the most high quality product that I own. You absolutely can not go wrong with Caselabs.
