hi guys, here's the ALU GB round 3, new design, better material and better quality.
only 3 color available

RED    SILVER     TITANIUM

price for the new design is 175$


the old design case is still available, could see some images here:  http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=35213.0
also red silver titanium available.
price for the old design is 135$

the case fits poker/poker2/pure/pure pro. so if GH60 got the same size and screw position, the it could be put into he case.
seems GH60 got the same size as poker.
shipping: will be shipped with the postoffice airline package with tracking, or by FEDEX.
the shiping cost is 40$, the package is over 2KG. (will check the exact shipping cost)
 
will take few weeks for the producing.

order here:   https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1682sdhUOzZh9r_kN1u4McuhTadsZMRmAQqIS56G6NvY/viewform
order deadline 25th June, seems there're too many orders, the stop date get earlier.
so will stop at 18th June.

will the other color samples later.

titanium is the same color as the space bar. 25204-0

the case will be done from these plate ALU board. The boards are not made in China..  that's why it's expensive than the old ones.
and the CNC will take more time because the new design is more complicate that a normal 'case'
I know the quality of GB2 is not so good as GB1, so we are try to make the best procedure to be able control the quality to be the better.

Just to clarify, these will fit GH60 PCBs and plates. GON has been pushing to make the GH60 PCBs fit his own standards and cases, but we've decided to go with our original plan for compatibility with poker cases.

Thank you for that.  This case looks amazing and many of GON's cases look great, but they're way outside my price range and I'm sure the price range of others out there.  The nice, cheap Poker/Pure plastic tray compatibility is good for people like me.

Holy, the price is so damn high but holy crap it does look cool. If it's 100% it'll fit a gh60 no matter the layout I'm seriously considering. Please doubletriplequadriple confirm this.

Also, are the pics of titanium color or silver?

Of course this case is different, but just a heads up

i believe that is a poker II pictured in the last shot judging by the vortex plate pictured, though it could be a PURE pro as well. Point is a plate is pictured; also the round 2 cases are pictured around geekhack (see poker picture thread) with plated pokers.

Which old design is being sold?

The link shows 2 versions of the old style. One has the case preformed with the angle. The other case is flatter and has separate feet.

Which one is it?
