  1. SMA8 pedestal

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Jan 2018

    Ordered the SMA8 pedestal as I want to expand the radiator support in my PC. Everything came well packaged but one piece did manage to get bent. An easy fix and unsure that one could blame CaseLabs. It was a thin part of one of the panels for the Pedestal. The damage could just as easily been the shipper, and everyone was very well packed. The components as usual with CaseLabs are very well made and everything lines up. Bags of screws all labeled well. Won't officially start adding this to my build until I get a few more components such as additional fans. The Epic PC build continues :)

  2. Another High Quality Product

    Posted by Xerxes Baldonasa on 12th Jul 2016

    I continue to see high quality products from CaseLabs, I can't help myself expect it from that name brand. This pedestal is another fine example of the CaseLabs' clear lead in the computer case industry. I hope CaseLabs expands on manufacturing without sacrificing quality all over the globe and drown out companies that make attempts to manufacture cheap imitations of the CaseLabs products.

  3. Caselabs rock again !!

    Posted by Mark on 8th Jul 2015

    Well I ordered one of these and some other bits and pieces from here in the UK, and as usual top notch service from caselabs - it arrived a day early. The quality is as expected - no complaints whatsoever, all carefully packaged for it's trip across the pond.
    As the saying goes - it does what it says on the tin, I am very happy with it, and now rocking 2 x 480 rads in my new pedestal, and I still have loads of room left for more rad madness if the urge arises. Recommend Caselabs highly - the last or only case you will probably need.

  4. Growing room

    Posted by Ashtaroth on 26th May 2015

    Bought it as a Rad/PSU box for a case modding project.

    Very light and durable for its size. Easy to assemble.

    Only con was that they cant paint it the way I wanted it but that's alright the fun is in doing it yourself!

  5. Nice Rad Box

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Dec 2013

    Pros: Very nice build quality. Paint job is top notch. I dinged it a few times and not even a scratch. Very customizable. It does exactly what I wanted it to do.
    Cons: "flex bays" don't come with any ability to mount anything. Mounts need to be purchased separately which is fine, but it would be nice if it indicated that on the web page.
    No dust filters included, and there doesn't appear to be any really viable dust filter option sold separately (other than individual dust filters). Considering this comes standard on cases priced a fraction of the cost, seems kind of a glaring oversight, regardless of what they say on their website about them.
    Instructions are rather paltry; they are the kind of instructions I would expect to find on 50 dollar cases, not cases that cost 10 times that.

  6. Great Addon

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Apr 2013

    Having the pedestal for your case is great addon. It provides you even more room than you already have with the case (which is already amazing).

  7. Fantastic option

    Posted by Harry From Monster PC on 15th Feb 2013

    I love these bases for keeping the temps out of the hardware area. Really a nice option that works well.

  8. Great for additional space

    Posted by Ixander on 23rd Dec 2012

    Great space for rads, reservoir, fan controller, etc. I bought it for my rads and reservoir, and it works perfect. It is a product of high quality.
