Looks super sick!! Since you mentioned fitting a RPi in there, any thoughts about cooling, options to fit ports somewhere?

Super dope, definitely considering getting one for the price. Not sure if it has been asked but can you mix and match the colors like that one white render?

Pretty sure it has been confirmed on discord that you can get bases and tops in different colours.

Holy...

Imagine putting rails on this big boi and having him in a drawer or a server rack!

Nice design!

this sounds so cool, how would you install it tho? Have the handle on the outside to tug or?

Thank you very much!  Sorry I am a little behind on the geekhack replies - for the RPi cooling I did not really make any special provisions, but I suppose it is possible to mount it to the case with some thermal paste.  For ports, I have created a breakoff tab on the bottom of the case that can be used to pass cables through.

Yes, as one person replied, two toned ordering will be perfectly acceptable.  Thank you for the compliment!

Can't wait to see this hit GB status! Waiting for my turn.

Also, why is the Vendor website for the US still not up? Will it go live once the GB starts? I really want this, but don't want to order from overseas....

Wait 4.5h from now for EarlyBird Sale to complete (if I get the timing right), then it should be unlocked

Yep - the GB sites are going live at 6PM GMT+0  I am going to make a GB thread now.

Is it compatible with other PCB such as Insta60 or DZ60?

HHKB please
Thank you for saying please!  I'm not opposed to it -  I am willing to do other R5 options depending on interest.

Looks like this didn't happen in the end?

Does this case fit any standard 60% PCB, so, say, for example, I wanted to use an ANSI Layout Hotswap PCB?

Since the USB is a passthrough, it should be able to use any 60% PCB. Just pick the correct plate for your layout. The purist plate should work for most PCB's, but the utilitarian plate should be used if you're using a 2U left shift

Correct, there was not enough interest in HHKB unfortunately.

I"m new to all this.  Are the switches swappable?  Or do I have to solder them?

If you buy the PCB from them, you'd have to solder. However, you should be able to use any hotswappable 60% PCB

I dig it. Not sure that i would get, but its a unique build for sure. The more plain builds just don't excite me quite as much, but i get more detail-work would take away from the space-camp/ space-race tech vibe.

Shes here and shes solid asf!!  I expected it to sound hollow but the design along with the included foam makes it sound like a solid aluminum board. Excellent EXCELLENT QC to boot. This is my new endgame! 😍🥰

Laced her with some alpacas, Durock v2 stabs lubed with krytox, and SA Royal. Im in love.
