    Already planning my Coffee Lake build. Think I'll get the In Win A1 when it's released before the S1 arrives

    Second time backing this, looking forward to the final product.
    Really hope they show off more builds and custom water cooling soon.

    I snagged two of these, will decide which colour I want when it arrives and bay the other. I've purchased a NH-L12 cooler now as they are EOL, but for now I'll sit back and see what new tech arrives around the time I get my hands on the Ghost.

    Louqe seem to have followed through with getting samples out to youtubers. This was just posted earlier, hopefully there will be a follow up video. Not convinced about his colour choice.

    If it's anything like the DAN case I wouldn't be surprised if you doubled you're money on the 1 you sell.

    If this was about £100 with a big TopHat and fit a 3.5 hard drive, I would buy it

    Didn't think about selling. I cancelled my early bird pledge as I decided it was really a bit too indulgent. Something I want more than I need. Guess I could've made some money out of it if I hadn't cancelled, but I suppose someone else gets to own one now instead of me profiteering.

    Just incase anyone missed on the Kickstarter, they've sent out an email today and are going to make another batch available to preorder:
    So that's 6PM i think on Sunday night and roughly £176 or so for the XS model.

    Still to much to me. £100+ the price of 2 M top hats and I would buy.

    Don't get me wrong, it looks like a nice case and all but I struggle to get excited over anotherexpensive mini-itx shoebox.

    Went against my better judgement and ordered one in "limestone". It's a fairly extravagant purchase, but I genuinely think the modular system will ensure I'm using this through many future builds.

    So now the kickstarter is over - how does one purchase these?

    Thank you. Jesus - should have backed it, almost £200, not sure I can justify that.

    Awesome looking bit of kit this, I considered it and thought I could maybe justify the cost of the case. But then when I remembered I'd need an mITX motherboard and SFX powersupply at minimum, and realistically I'd probably want new cpu/memory to go with that along with a NVMe SSD the price vs benefit was hiliarously bad. Maybe I'll pick one of these up when I next genuinely need a new CPU/memory setup!

    Most backers should have an email from LOUQES CEO today.

    Good to see OCUK are part of LOUQES 'Organic Business Network' diagram.

    Not sure how I feel hearing the word molex though, as I'm not a huge fan of the connector. Wonder what project this could be for.

    " o We are meeting with SIGMA today to discuss the develop of a new type of STRAIGH flat cables (very small and flexible) as a replacement of the standard PSU cables. Angled connectors where needed (PSU, SSD etc.) and cut to length. The cables can be made straight thanks to a MOLEX converter solution where the cables are modular themselves. All the pin-out realignment is happening within the MOLEX socket and the flat cables are connected to these MOLEX realignment sockets."

    I'm sure on hardforum thread Patrik said they had been approached by Caseking or such during an event in Sweden towards the end of last year during their kickstarter.

    Seriously considering one of these cases. Just need to check if my Strix 980 fits with the PCI connectors and if it does, I may just order.

    Wonder how long delivery will be?

    On "slack" they are currently saying:
    Current Shipping Estimates for the Ghost S1 (As of 8th Feb): "Slight delay in the time frame - May is more likely than April"
