The SMH10 was desgined without a fixed I/O panel for the front. Instead, we created a 3.5'' bay mount directly under the swicthes. 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!

I, like many was hesitant to spend this much on a case, but after years of of owning "high end" full towers and super towers, I now have no regrets about buying this case. The build quality is top notch, counter sunk screws, thick aluminum, and a wonderful powder coated finish. Once built the case is very solid, does not creak or flex like many factory cases made of multiple materials (steel, plastic, aluminum).
Yes, you'll spend more, but your not just buying another case, your investing in a case that will last for years, because, as many have stated in previous reviews, caselabs has all the brackets and accessories to fit your current build and many more builds.
The customer service is arguably some of the best out there,
from answering questions to resolving problems. I seen them send photos to people asking for comparisons of components in cases, or even photos of their cases in the build stage. Find another company to go out of their way like that.
All in all, great case and great company.

The Magnum SMH10 I purchased from Caselabs lived up to my expectations from the reviews I had read on many sites. The construction of the case is perfect. Everything fits and it's very solid.
I was surprised how big it was being it was the smaller version of the Magnum but I don't mind it just leaves me wondering what kinds of things I'd like to do with it.
I had one issue with a few screws missing, contacted Caselabs, and was immediately sent out a replacement pack of screws. The funny thing was, they give you so many extra screws, I didn't even need them. They responded first showing me how I could use other screws in their place and everything looked great and works perfectly fine.
Otherwise, it might be hard to justify for some and because I'm not a rich guy, but I can definitely say that I'll be very happy to keep and use this case for the next 5-7 years at least if not longer. Also, the fact that it's not a made in China product with blueprints being shipped out and whatever comes back comes back makes me feel better. I can always contact Caselabs with any issues or for parts to modify my case.
All in all, not a cheap case but I do not regret the purchase a bit. Just make sure you measure the size of what you plan on getting before you order =D

Alright, so I got the case today, ripped it out of the box and got it together. The construction of the case is flawless, it's amazing, and precise. Plenty of space to fit a RIVE, and dual/tri 7970's. I can't wait to get this either put together completely, or mod it lightly. I probably won't mod it, because it's so freaking perfect.
Anyways, despite the price- get it, you'll never really have another reason to get an average, factory case again, but buy another CL case!

This case is a joy to build but only if you are use to building your own stuff, the Manuel that comes with it is next to useless, need more work on that part. Sale service is excellent although the ordering interface could use more detail, package delivered on time(to Singapore no less) and without any scratch, kuddo! to caselabs.
FYI, my pc interior drop 20 degress and my over clocked 4.6ghz cpu never go above 60 degree, this case is a must have for people that love building and tinkering with their personal pc

Case superlative, exceptional quality materials, spacious and well-built, all pezi are assembled with amazing accuracy, good case for liquid cooling system, the best from me owned. Also the guys at caselabs have followed me during configuration and well recommended.

These cases cost more than most, but you pay for quality. The powder coating finish looks really good. The SMH10 can easily house more than enough radiators for an overclocked CPU and 4 GPUs. There are so many features, and you don't have to use them all, only the ones you want. In my opinion the quality is something you need to see in person. I read a lot of good things and looked at a lot of pictures, but I was still amazed when it arrived. It's a really great case.

When I first saw a Case Labs case I thought: "That's insane, too much for a case." After two "Full Towers" proved to not have enough features for my, admittedly high, standards I found Case Labs again and saw this case. My first thought was still "That's insane, too much for a case...But..." I started to think maybe it would be worth it to spend the money to get an obviously high quality case that could be used for future upgrades and builds. I wanted the SMH10 since it seemed to be the perfect size, but I couldn't find very many user pictures of it so I was hesitant to pull the trigger. I finally decided to and let me tell you something: Absolutely worth every penny!
I love everything about the case; the two compartments mean I don't have to worry about air leaking from the radiators onto components, the ability to do an rATX configuration means I can see my current trophy (GTX 690), there's tons of radiator space, but above everything else my favorite feature is the removable motherboard tray. It's gimmicky until you use it, and it makes installing components a breeze.
Buy this case, or any Case Labs case, I promise you won't regret it.

This is a beautifully crafted case, thoughtfully designed, and precisely manufactured. I personally feel that the investment expectations that accompanied the cost of this case were eclipsed. The build options are plentiful, and the attention to detail abounds in every facet of the manufacturing.

I threw everything at this case that was possible: 2 graphic cards with waterblocks, cpu waterblock, 3x 240mm rads, 1x 480mm rad, 2 d5 pumps, etc. and the case still looks empty. Well not exactly empty but very tidy.
But to start from the beginning, I live in Germany and was a bit concerned to order a case from California, shipping it halfway around the world. I was using a Cosmos 2 before and was not really happy with it because of its limited possibilities regarding watercooling. So, some time ago, I stumbled over a review of the STH10 and it catched my attention immediately. I looked through the Caselabs range of cases and found the SMH10. Long story short, I ordered the case flat packed and it arrived in perfect condition after only 8 days. Good job from the people packing the case. The case, the powder coating, everything was better than I hoped it would be. Rating Caselabs and the SMH10 regarding customer service/support, build quality and case versatility I give a straight 10 out of 10.
But there are 2 points that are not so good. First, I need a new hobby, because the system running in the SMH10 is good for at least the next 2 years. And second, unless my house burns down to the ground, I have no excuse to buy another case from CL :-(

I was hesitant at first to spend this kind of money for a case but I am so glad I did. This case gives you so much room and options to work with - it will literally be the last case I buy. I am not using this case for water cooling (other than the corsair h100) but can definitely be used for that. I am primarily using this as a server/workstation with currently 6 hard drives, a raid controller, two graphic cards and 8 noctua fans. I like the fact that this case allows me to grow and it is so easy to work/make adjustments to this case. I highly recommend this case to any one.
