The SMA8 was designed without a fixed I/O panel for the front. Instead, we created a 3.5'' bay mount directly under the switches. Now you have the freedom to have any type I/O panel you like or none at all! The switch assembly includes two switch plates, a solid version and one with a cut-out for your 3.5'' device.

We offer this 3.5'' device wih USB and HD audio. We can even color match it to your CaseLabs case!

  1. Dream Case

    Posted by Robert on 1st Sep 2015

    Words alone would not do this case justice ,if you want perfection and quality you found it.
    Excellent customer service. I will be BUYING another one for my wife!!!.
    Caselabs you are the BEST.

  2. Don't let your dreams be dreams

    Posted by Anthony on 23rd Aug 2015

    was skeptical about placing the order when my case went from $519 to $792 extremely quick, but after receiving the case and putting it together it all makes sense. every piece is individually package. you can tell CaseLabs takes pride in their brand. hefty price, but for an enthusiast, it's definitely worth it. trust.

  3. American Built Masterpiece

    Posted by Thomas M. on 14th Aug 2015

    My Gunmetal SMA8 case arrived this week, all parts individually wrapped, padded, and flat-packed with obvious care and attention. Assembly was fun and gives you direct appreciation for the quality of all the parts and the uniqueness and craftsmanship that is imbued in a CASELABS case. No regrets with this purchase. I now look forward to designing and filling up my SMA8 with equally quality components.......

  4. The best case money can buy

    Posted by Joe Williams on 15th Jul 2015

    Every part of this case was packed perfectly, and the gunmetal finish is flawless. You get what you pay for and I am sure I will have this case for 10 years plus, until I just get tired of it. Total cost of the case and all parts was probably around 1k with all the additional items I ordered and the motherboard tray swapout. It's not cheap but it's exactly what I want. Another great American company thanks guys and gals!

  5. The Best Case Ever!

    Posted by William on 11th May 2015

    I was a little bit sketchy about this case because of how you have to build it but overall when i got it the gunmetal looked great and when it was put together it looked great! Building was easy and straight forward and i live the end product!
    Overall: 10 out of 10

  6. Amazing Support

    Posted by Omricon on 18th Apr 2015

    When I first ordered my case I selected my parts and griped at the price as everyone who orders from CaseLabs do their first time. Then I immediately regretted one of my choices just after ordering my case. So I contacted customer support and they were more than helpful in getting me the right choices without even needing a reorder or anything. It's by far the best customer support I've ever experienced. So I want to thank the CaseLabs team for their amazing help in getting the perfect case for me.

  7. Top Notch Case!

    Posted by Almeida on 6th Apr 2015

    The SMA8 by CaseLabs is a pefectly cut, powder coated, and meticulously packaged. Each piece fits together perfectly, and every screw lines up as expected. This is the kind of quality that is expected from a premium price tag, and this case did not disappoint.

  8. Case of my dreams!

    Posted by Jeremy on 28th Mar 2015

    This is an outstanding case with great room for a custom water cooling loop! I plan to submit my final build to the site for viewing. It is a dream to build with! The packaging for shipment was top notch and it arrived without a scratch. Outstanding product, will definitely be doing business with CaseLabs again in the future!

  9. Perfect!

    Posted by DAVIGNY PATRICE on 21st Mar 2015

    Best of the Best !!
    fully satisfied !

  10. Beyond All Expectations

    Posted by Skyler on 16th Mar 2015

    When you consider purchasing your first Caselabs product, you are only aware that these cases are something special. When it arrives for you to assemble (yes, assemble. Hundreds of pieces.), it beats all expectations. Your assembling adventure is like a personal tour of supreme quality, the likes of which are hard to find. From start to finish, Caselabs did not cease to impress me and startled me with just as many fantastic surprises. You aren't paying for just quality, you are paying for an heirloom, an experience, and an extremely well designed product built to last.
