When selecting a two tone color scheme;
In the order comments please specify which parts of the case are to be which color.
Doors: black Flex-Bay covers: white PCI covers: black
Chassis: white Front cover: black Switch plate: white
Motherboard tray: white Top cover: black
Aluminum Construction: The case is made using heavy gauge all aluminum construction. Unlike some imports using thin aluminum (.040” - 1mm), our cases are made from .090” (2.3mm) for the frame and .063” (1.6mm) for the doors and covers for a case that can stand up to the rigors of large scale water cooling and frequent system tear-downs. Aluminum is much lighter than steel, dissipates heat better, and is easier to mod.
Quick Access: The doors and covers can be removed in seconds to facilitate access and minimize the chance of damaging exterior panels during a build. The doors are on hinges that allow them to easily swing out of the way for quick adjustments. The front and top covers snap on and off – no screws to slow you down or get lost. The “cover over frame” design allows the frame to be modified as needed without affecting the appearance of the completed build.
Slide-Out Motherboard Tray: The entire motherboard tray easily slides out and can be converted into a free standing tech station (with the included parts). Your build can be completely assembled and tested on a table top. No more working inside a cramped case trying to get everything in place. The tray is held in place with four self-retaining thumb screws – nothing to get lost. How many times has a screw rolled off the edge of your desk, never to be seen again?
Flex-Bay System: Almost every case on the market today has a fixed structure at the front of the case - maybe four or five 5.25" bays on top, a 3.5" bay below that and HDD cages below that. What if that layout doesn't work for you? We've all seen people who have had to mod their cases (sometimes irreversibly) to fit things like radiators. With our Flex-Bay System, you can design that superstructure to be anything you need, and put things wherever you want and change it as often as you like, within minutes. In that respect, you become the case designer. We have a wide array of Flex-Bay adapters and mounts, so you have complete freedom to design it just the way you need it. click here for pictures and more information on The Flex-Bay System
Accessory Mounting System: If you ever wished that you could put a fan in a particular spot or needed a surface to mount something to, our Accessory Mounting System will make your life much easier. By using the holes around the perimeter of the case, or by using vertical or horizontal accessory mounts, you can place fans, reservoirs, pumps, and more, exactly where you want them (maybe just a flat plate to cover up messy cables). We have a wide variety of plates and fan mounts for almost every need. click here for more pictures and information on The Accessory Mounting System
Integrated Radiator/Fan Mounting: Designed for extreme water cooling applications with multiple radiators in multiple locations. Feel free to mount 120.1-4 radiators almost anywhere; top and bottom of both the PSU side and the motherboard side, in the Flex-Bays and under extended top covers. Please note: It is not always possible to use all mounting locations at once depending on how the case is configured with hardware. Please view the radiator clearance specifications below.
Note: Sizes shown are for the case only. Rubber feet add .75" (19mm) to height, optional casters add 2.63" (67mm).
Features and standard equipment:
Please note the the 120mm holes on the PSU side are for HDD mounts and are not spaced for a radiator. USB 3.0 option requires 3.0 headers on te motherboard.

I looked at reviews and studied cases for weeks before decided to purchase this case. I had a few important features i wanted out of a case. Be able to use a case for 10+ years, easy to modify and evolve over time if needed, top notch build quality, modern aesthetics with great looks. This case fit all those for me. Im very happy with my purchase. Very well packed for shipping and for a custom built case it was shipped in a timely manner.

I've had many cases before but none were so good as the M8! Such excellent build quality, perfect finish, easy removable parts, spacious design, and the flexibility.
I only have one UT60 360 radiator in and I still have enough room for 2 more.
One thing to think about is: plan ahead! Think about what you want in the case and where, then sift through the huge list of accessories and buy it! You will be very happy. And if you're not order some more parts :D

What can I say that everyone else hasn’t already said. Sure the price is more that what most people spend on an entire system, but you truly get what you pay for here. Caselabs cases are in a league of their own and for the true enthusiast, this is a must have for your water cooling needs. It's not only a beauty to look at, but the possibilities are endless on what you can do with them.
In short, if you're thinking about going to watercooling get one of their cases. Dont think about it, just do it. Thanks Caselabs and keep up the fantastic work.

Its almost a mid-tower. Really pretty, even with 3x240mm, 2x360mm Rads you don't lose your 5.25" front bays or 3.5" internal bays. All the holes line up, its a dream to work with. Its a gorgeous case, check out my build log.

About half a year back I was looking around for a new case, something I feel that would give me a good option cooling, something more updated since I've been using a Lian Li A-71 Full tower case for the last 4 years or so. I've always thought that Lian Li and Silverstone make the most excellent top of the line aluminum chassis for PC enthusiasts... WRONG. When I first saw Caselab Case i was a little skeptical whether they're going to look good, but the more I find out about just how wonderful their design and construction is the more I'm really interested in getting one for an upgrade.
I first contacted Carla from the customer service team a few months back, Just getting an idea of how much I'll be spending for postage, some minor questions about the products, and she was very very helpful and very quick with her response, absolutely wonderful. So after some saving up I finally purchased one and I was over the moon that It arrived within about a week, sure the postage is hefty, but it's definitely worth it!
There's something people won't understand about how good CaseLab cases are until they've actually laid hands on one, to see one in person for the first time... is just absolutely amazing! The finish in matte black for my M8 is excellent, the craftsmanship is absolutely the best of the best, totally destroys any other case companies out there by far! The case is well protected during transportation, the door panels are absolutely solid I doubt there'll be any vibration, and the whole design and quality is just simply out of this world. I like to personally thank the whole Caselab team for helping me get my hands on such a perfect case, and I'd love to see this company become more well known and keep updating their inventory with more fantastic products and hopefully in the future the shipping fee will cut down greatly!

I first sent Jim an emails last year to inquire about the M8 I had been seeing on the net with rave reviews. I had an old case that I wanted to update as it had no more room for me to play in after I put it on water. I ordered the M* and when it arrived I could see straight away why it had received such great review. Mate, you have done a wonderful thing designing these things. So much room and so customizable. I'm running 2 x AX360's with 2 x modded Swiftech 655's and a large res. This thing still has room to grow. I'm still adding and since I won an EVGA Supernova1500 PSU, I am going t add more. Hmm.... someone say TITAN?
Thanks Jim. You rock!! Should have bought one of these years ago.

I am always skeptical about consumer goods. Too often have I bought something with rave reviews about high build quality and something being "solid" and been disappointed with what I had at my front door.
If you are like me, there is no need to be skeptical about the Caselabs offerings. This think is a TANK and very well build. The weight threw me through a loop at first as the aluminum keeps this thing very light. However, it does not feel flimsy at all.
I do not have any water in mine yet but I am planning a build for it and I am really excited to get things going.
The best thing I can say about this product and this company is you can buy with confidence.
The only regret I have is that I wish I would have gotten the caster wheels when I ordered my case, not that the included feet are bad, it is just the fact that since I keep my case on carpet on the floor it would be nice to slide the case around on wheels.

love this case i was able to run 2 alphacool monsta's 360 rad's on the psu side with push pull fans 3 fans on the front and a silverstone st-1500 psu to keep the motherboard side free of rad's still have some room for more rad's if i need them

I was unsure if this case would be big enough for what i needed. As soon as i got it though there was plenty of room and even more to spare when i finally put water cooling into it. The build quality is fantastic and the finish is no where near what you see on other cases. It is obvious the level of quality control is unparalleled.
The care put into shipping this case was fantastic, i had ordered some accessories along with it and everything came pre-installed and all the spare parts were put in individual bags and labeled.

I may be being too harsh to take away 1 point on the case..
The case quality is unparalleled. There was certainly an incredible amount of thought put into the design. There is nothing sloppy about this case.
The reason I took away 1 point, is it is stated nowhere that to mount regular fans on the ample amount of spaces require either drilling for regular fan screws, or buying your own. Not a big deal to do, I just wish I had the heads up so I could have bought the screws and such while the case was being shipped!
Amazing case. Keep up the good work!
