Replacement top frame for Rapid i and Novatouch?
« on: Sat, 04 July 2015, 21:39:07 »
Cooler Master - you guys used to sell just the top frame for the QFR.

Can you guys sell a replacement top frame for the new Rapid i and Novatouch? I'm working on a paint job for my Novatouch but would love to experiment with other types of colors and textures.

Thanks!

Does Cooler Master check this forum anymore?

The two CM mods, Carter and CM-Rajiv, were last active yesterday and December respectively, although neither of them has posted for a month or two since their last login.

Time flies ... that Novatouch post was more than 2 weeks ago!

That's a shame... oh well, maybe one day they'll stumble on my thread and then I can try to convince them to sell me just the top :)

Last I heard they were going to start selling replacement shells for their MasterKeys Pro line. Novatouch has officially been discontinued by CM due to issues with their supplier/manufacturer Topre.

I can ask for you:) But definitely sure you won't be able to get one for the Novatouch since they are now discontinued.

Highly unlikely. Although I haven't seen the insides of a Ducky One TKL case.

EDIT: I've contacted CM UK and they say they don't have any left.
