Between my TJ07, murdermod parts, and powdercoating I'm into my case for over $600 not including the time I've spent on it. It's looked damn good on the desk for a couple years and I still find myself admiring the lines of the case. However, when it goes up for sale it'll be below the current price of a new TJ07 or I don't think it will sell. I'll get some money in my jeans to spend on my new build, and someone will get a nice case to make their own.
This, is probably the most truth I have seen about this than anything else. Couldn't have put it better myself.
And, since you took it off, I'm stealing your Mod hat!

Anyone looking for a TJ07 is probably wanting to build their own custom loop. My opinion only, your mileage may vary, and other various disclaimers.
Agreed. Selling used cases is hard and you almost never get anywhere near the money the case is worth. If you can sell it at all.

Cases are hard to sell Matt. I'm still trying to move my LDPC V8. I can't even sell it for $350 shipped... And that sucker has the case feet, PCIE slots, switches, and fans installed.
Wish you luck, and hope you get what your after ;)

I wonder what I could get for my TJ11

I actually saw someone make a WTB for one a while ago. Not sure how many people would buy one just to sell it a while later (unless something urgent came up I guess).

Thankfully silverstone hasn't made any case yet that makes me want to ditch mine so it has been worth it so far. Hard to explain to others why you would spend so much time and money on something this expensive that is basically just for visuals though.

Good luck if you decide to sell it

There is a good chance the uni-body shell from the MKII should be available for sale eventually. Pair that w/ the stuff you already have. Should still look pretty bauce. The drive cage will definitely be for sale too.

I never even got MM#22 put together :( I was considering selling, but I figured around $600. $500 is just not worth it. Oh well, I will find a use for it.

I just couldn't resist the MKII. Preordering after I hear back from Charles about some questions. It just has too many features that I have wanted for so long. Really is stunning.


Glad the dual topfan is not standard tho. Not my style. The grille with the added bonus of the build number is tits.

Anyone have a bench table for cheap Looks like my RIVE build wont have a roof over its head for a while :)


Also, do you have more "shade 19" sleeve left over from your monster 2011 build Lowfat? If yes LMK, would like to get some for accent :)

Damon

Edit: Wow, that is service! Charles already answered questions via Email and has my order all hammered out :)
