  1. I asked about hexus as i replied on there too - unfortunately these cases were very costly to make and for cooler master making them wasn't cost effective. They were as i said replaced with the praetorian, which has now evolved further into a totally new case.

    The only improvement that is needed on the ATCs range of cases is 120mm fans - thats all

    I'm afraid it's a waiting game with respect to finding one these days you just have to keep your eyes open for them.


  2. What case exactly are you talking about?

    We don't have anything called the Black Widow.

    Do you have a model number or a name at least?

    The cases is the ATC 201b-BXT sometimes called the black widow - i'm not sure this was a cooler master term for the case or if it was just something the press decided to call it (i'd love to know the answer as i'm a huge fan of ATCS cases)


  3. Has CM discontinued this product or is their production just really low and thus these cases are hard to find??? I really love the case as a whole.. especially in black, with windows, and a very high gloss finish, not to mention the nice foot stands.

    any info on this product at all??? thanks guys!

    The case is discontinued, it was replaced by the praetorian PAC-T01 however although having similar looks, it was anodise rather than painted so the high gloss finish was no longer.

    Your only chance to find one these days is second hand via ebay, or keep your eyes open on the various computer forums classifieds sections.

    (did you also post this question on hexus?)


  4. If they post the photos of us with the signs/cases... you'll see, I'm actually a girl ;) But thanks, I look forward to seeing yours and everyone else's mods too! :)

    Oh cool, i think most people automatically think male in this kinda thing - i'm female too.

    My highs were getting my anodised and laser engraved panel back.

    My low was when the painting on my side panels all bubbled up and i had to start all over again - i was set to give up, but i'm glad i didn't.

    I started the modding as soon as the comp was announced - so all in it was pretty quick work considering, there are a few more thing i would have liked to have done but ran out of time - may well do them later on


  5. Thread revival, as i've added to my little collection quite significantly:

    Here you go heres my little lot, though i need to make some space soon :eek:

    cm0001xq5.jpg

    Bottom Row Left to Right:

    201b-SX1 - Currently holding my Rig Champagne sides/top anodised silver front

    201c-SX1 - Mint (New & Never used) Champagne sides/top anodised silver front

    201b-SXK - Some people say this is a "silver widow" not sure if there is such a thing All Anodised silver

    200c-CX1 - very rare first revision with champagne sides and anodised gold front panel, Top drive blank has been modded (not by me) for a pioneer slot drive.

    200c-MX2 - the more popular ATC 200 case. Dark grey texture painted sides/top, anodised silver front with anosides black surround for the drive bays.

    111b-SX2 - Lovingly restored by me. All anodised silver.

    Top Row left to right:

    201c-SX1 - Spares parts case, Will maybe have a go at modding it one day. Champagne sides/top anodised silver front

    Praetorian - All anodised silver, I only got this for the front firewire/USB/Audio ports which are now in my 201 rig (must move on soon)

    210c-DX1 - Mint (New & never used) All anodised silver with a Black perspex door, pretty rare in this colour too.

    111c-SX1 - Mint (New & never used) All anodised silver

    Will have a ATC 500-SX1 shortly as well which will be brand new.

    And for my sins..... Lastly my little Lian Li PC402a, All anodised silver, there would have originally been a perspex door on this case but it has been chopped off, mod not done by me but i definately think it looks better without a door. Cases houses my mini ITX epia system - would like to maybe replace it with a ATCS-tek slim case if i can ever get my hands on one, failing that maybe the ATC630-S21


  6. Does anyone have any information and pictures of the ATC 300 (SSV-03)

    I know it's discontinued now, but really looking for some decent pictures of it if anyone has one!


  7. WOW Ron cheers for that!

    But you've missed off the:

    100 (plus variations)

    111 (Plus variations

    201-SX2

    620 (plus variations)

    I've managed to come up with some dates for stuff just by looking at reviews etc..

    Can anyone tell me about the black/silver widow? the real black/silver widow, so i believe has no top blow hole, is this correct as there were versions of of these cases produced with top blow holes (maybe just before the praetorians release?)


  8. Does anyone know the history of ATCS cases from ATCS-Tek days through to coolermaster days.

    Looking for info on things like when ATCS-Tek first made cases such as the MRO 16 (otherwise known as the wavemaster) & the MRO 18 (otherwise known as the 201) and then when cooler master took over.

    Release dates of cases etc..

    anything really relating to the older ATCs cases


  9. Makes me feel better i got mine for £35 lol even though i was expecting a green VX1

    Would really like to get my hands on a 100 - but as they weren't released in the UK thats going to be a long shot.

    I have a 200-cx on it's way from germany, which i'm quite excited about as i've never seen the gold colour of it in person


  10. What if someone takes orders, then puts it on ebay for you?

    Yep that would be cool! - Seriously if anyone is willing to order a case and put it up on ebay for me to buy, send me a pm or msn me harib0uk at gmail dot com I got my SX1 from a guy in the US via ebay and shipping for it was $77.60 air mail via USPS but i could have gone cheaper and paid something like $58 for surface.

    110s available here: http://umaxpc.com/store/product_info.php/products_id/95
