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 the motherboard.
Please allow 3-5 business days for order processing.

I love the case itself, it has more room than I could wish for and is well built from quality materials ontop of that. The pedestal goes great with it too, don't know where I would have been without that. Everything was easy to install and the ability to fit dual power supplies was a godsend. BUT, I found that the cables for I/O on the front were too short, especially the HD Audio cabling, I couldn't even plug it in. I also had some difficulty with there not being enough 5.25 device mounts that came with the case. This is a bigger issue for me as I had to order the case from Australia so it will take me a while to get more mounts. The customer service is great though so I'm sure they will sort me out fast enough.

This is easily the best case I've ever had the pleasure to lay my hands on. The enormousness doesn't even begin to show until you start filling it up. No only that but the cabling options are an OCD cablers dream. The best thing though as that EVERYTHING works as described and as it should. Best investment in computer gear I've ever made and can't wait to fill this bad boy with radiators Left,Right,Top AND bottom :D

Well built case with tons of room. Quality is outstanding. Versatility is amazing. My only gripe is that on the reverse incarnation of the TH10, some of the cables from the front I/O panel are too short, making you buy extra cables. I inquired to CaseLabs about this and they said they would fix the documentation that said they would ship a longer cable if you picked one of the I/O options. I was a little disappointed that they did not send a cable after all of the positive reviews I had read about customer service. That not withstanding, the case is well built and extremely flexible.

ITS SOMETHING THAT I CANT describe,ITS VERY GOOD Quality,THANKS CASE LABS

I have worked with/around this company's cases since before they were anywhere near the "consumer market", primarily in high-end research labs, and to be honest I actually was so impressed with the units that I tried getting one of these industrial cases for myself. That proved to be less than practical, so when I heard CaseLabs was the same company whose products I'd drooled over years before, I POUNCED!
If you are the kind of person who likes "upgrading" their case every build (aka "side-grading", bc with a few exceptions, you're simply trading one cases' flaws for another), this is not the place for you.
If you are an "air cooling purist", this is very likely not at all for you.
If you think that a case is a "secondary" component of a build, an afterthought, or the place to cut a few bucks to make it under budget, turn back now.
If you are the kind of person who wants a case that will, in all likelihood, outlast your interest in building computers (and, more than likely, outlast YOU), please proceed..
If you are the kind of person who thinks that a water-cooled system consisting of a CPU block, 3 GPU full-coverage blocks+backplates, full-motherboard block, dual pumps, 2 480 rads, and 2 360 rads is "a work in progress"; by all means, WELCOME!
If you are the type of person who knows that, next to the PSU, the case is one of the absolutely most-important pieces of a build, then you are home!
I have done a number of builds in CaseLabs cases for various people, and with various goals in each build, and I have thus used the M8, M10, MH10, SMH10, ST10, and of course, the absolute favorite of mine, the TH10!
Every one of those cases was an absolute joy to work with, but I must say that when it came to doing a build for myself, I knew that there was one case that stood above the rest (haha, get it? because it's tall? meh, nvm), and that is the case whose reviews you are currently reading, the godly CaseLabs TH10!!!
I got mine configured as follows:
- White Powder-Coating (interior/exterior)
- Standard ATX
- XXL Clear MB Side Window
- Ventilated PSU Side Door
- 85mm Ventilated Extended Top
- USB3.0/HD Audio Headers
- Hex Mesh PCI Backplate
I also ordered the Extended Pedestal (white powder-coated), enough bays to fill up one side completely and then some (better to have too much than not enough), 2 HD Horizontal Accessory Mounts and 2 HD Vertical ones, a variety of radiator mounts, a few each of the Attachment Plates (2 large, 5 small; all but one of each are "offset"), 6 offset 120mm fan accessory mounts, casters, a pair of the tube-run block-off plates, and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember.
It took me two entire days just to get everything figured out as to how I wanted to lay it out.
I think that's because I spent about 12 hours just jumping up and down because of the RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING build quality of the case! I am serious, this case held 220lbs of weight on top of it without so much as bending 2deg or making a peep. Try that with a Corsair, Cooler Master, or Lian Li!!!
This case has been in use for a while now, and has probably had four or five DOZEN component additions/changes/mods over that time, everything from additional drives to more radiators/blocks to you-name-it.
I have dropped it, rammed it into the wall, knocked it over, and even with the WHITE finish, there isn't a single mark on it! I can't say the same for myself, though, as I don't know how many times I've hit my shins against it, stubbed my toe, etc; to it's credit, I'm just clumsy. Even more to it's credit, I've only ever sustained blunt force injuries, NOT ONCE have I ever been cut or even seen a sharp edge anywhere! All of the metal is expertly finished and the edges are all rolled perfectly.
My Current Setup:
- i7 3930K @ 4.8Ghz
- Rampage IV Extreme X79 MB
- 32GB (4x8GB) Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3-2400cl9 @ 2540 10-11-11-30
- 3x EVGA GTX680 Classified 4GB
- 1x Samsung 830 256GB SSD's

- Areca 24port PCI-E3.0 x8 RAID Controller Card
- 8x WD RE4 1TB RAID10
- 4x HGST Ultrastar 2TB RAID5
- 3x HGST Deskstar 4TB (backups)
- Seasonic Platinum 1250PSU (Modular)
- Custom Sleeved Cables (did myself; 1/2 white, 1/4 red, 1/4 grey; all with 550 Paracord, heatshrink-less)
- 3x MCP35X Pumps (1 MCP35X2, 1 single pump)
- 1x 400ml Helix Reservoir
- XSPC Raystorm Full-Copper CPU Block (lapped flat)
- 3x Watercool Heatkiller GTX680 Hole Edition GPU Blocks with Backplates

An extremely well though out design + rock-solid engineering = one seriously nice case.
Fit and finish is top notch.
Posted by Unknown on 22nd Jun 2012
so much room. Brilliant.
last case you'll ever need. finish is perfect. Parts fit together perfectly, and it has a solid feel that I think is lacking amongst full tower cases with plastic parts.

I have built dozens of computers using pretty much every case maker's offerings. Nothing has matched the fit & finish or attention to detail of this case.
If you've ever gone through the process of buying a case and pre-fit the gear to make the list of the 10 things you'll need to mod just to make it work right... you need this case.
You'll love this case. No structural mods needed, everything has been accounted for. Everytime I've switched the design and said "I wonder if I can turn this this way".. the case has come through making it painless.
If you calculate the cost of your time and think about all the times you've had to drill out rivets and cut a sheet panel to gain a 1/4 inch or route a set of lines, you'll realize this case is worth the price.
You could swap in different cooling systems until your arms fall off without having to pick up the dremel tool to "make it work". The wife appreciates the lack of piles of aluminum shavings and drilling sounds late into the night with this build.
The only thing you'd have to pick up power tools for is to "make the case into art" and carve your name into it, which you may want to do as it's such a beauty.
Build: Dual 4x120 rads, GT15s push/pull, MCP35x2, GTX680s, EATX MB, SSDs & HDs, 2x baybus, cooling monitoring and control via external processor.

I've spent countless hours researching a replacement case for my old, and extremely cramped case. Once I stumbled upon this manufacturer and found builds that utilized this case - I was sold. These are the best cases I have ever seen, they are simply unmatched by anything else that I have encountered before.
Bite the bullet, consider the cost the price of investment. Save for catastrophic damage, I'll never need another case again, and this case will accommodate any monstrosity of a board you can throw at it.

The best way to get a feel for this case is going to http://ppbm6.com/Planning.html and read about my impressions and see some photos of this case.
In summary: I warned you that the case will be considered exorbitant by many. It is way more expensive than a regular mid-tower or even a big-tower, up to 10 times the price (including the shipping costs). But keep in mind that a case has an almost everlasting life. It is similar to a tripod that outlives a camera many times. I'm pretty confident that I can still use this case when the third generation i9 CPU's with 32 cores plus Hyper Threading with support for 256+ GB memory are available, or even dual 40-core Xeons with up to 1 TB memory. I consider this a long term investment.
