ATCS 840 Official Thread

I still have a question, was anyone able to install casters on ATCS 840? I was thinking about those from Lian Li, but looks like the holes do not match...

UPDATE

In case you don't mind some drilling, Lian Li casters WB-01 fit perfectly fine and look very nice. :D

I'm curious about what is 'outdated' about it? Is it just that the front-panel doesn't have USB-3?

Except, possibly, the lack of an 8th slot, there is nothing that the 840 lacks. It is pure beauty.

Compared to this, the HAF is an ugly, bumpy, plastic monstrosity.

Be Well!

I agree with you on the HAF, that's why I never bought one. The ATCS 840's fit and finish just doesn't quite compare to Lian-Li cases in the price range. Lian-Lis have more sturdy side panels with better fitment making a much more clean looking case. For its time though, the ATCS 840 was hard to beat in that price range (when it dropped to $200, not when it first debuted).

I also own the ATCS-840 and am planning to upgrade my PC, and i am not buying a new case anytime soon for my upgraded system because i love the case (on top of that it was pretty expensive) but i would love to see USB 3.0 support, and i bet i am not the only one who feels this way.

Isn't it posible to make a replacment PCB for the front pannel that replaces 2 of the USB 2.0 ports with USB 3.0 ports? Think it should be posible for CM to sell a good bunch of them, especaily if you put out a little press release to some major Hardware review sites etc. That way CM can make some money (not to much :P ) of the people who are not willing to part from there ATCS-840, but want to fit a new motherboard with USB 3.0 (no... i am not prepaired to buy a whole new ATCS-840 with USB 3.0 ports)

Anybody know a place where I can purchase the ATCS 840 case online (or in Southern California)?

Thanks!

PS. I currently still use the Cooler Master Wave Master [TAC-T01]!!! :-)
