    SENTRY 3.0: Development and Suggestions

    Hello once again, As you all know, Sentry 2.0 crowdfunding campaign ended almost 2 years ago. In the last few months we received many, many emails, pm’s and tweets from you guys asking if we will make another run of the case. Because of the pandemic situation last year was very busy for us at...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    Hi guys, You probably noticed that we’ve been busy for a while, and we were moving making another batch of SENTRY cases for an indefinite future. Right now we are still lacking time with our current projects, so we won’t be able to make a big crowdfunding campaign for Sentry project like we...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    In case you were wondering which type of GPU use (with open-air or with blower-style cooler), Optimum tech made a direct comparison between those cards in console style cases (Senty 2.0) and shoe-box cases (Ghost S1):

    Quick update: - We finally received the funds from Indiegogo, - We sent and paid in USD currency for most of the components which will be delivered from outside the EU-zone, - We are waiting for an exchange company to exchange funds from USD currency to PLN to start ordering process for parts...

    Hardware Unboxed guys made a live stream build with 2 Sentry cases at the same time with installing AIO water cooling in both of them. You may want to check that out (YOLO assembly without reading the manual is always fun :D)

    We have your email, and you will get answer about your particular situation, but it takes time. Every day we are receiving many emails, and sometimes we just can't answer to everybody within 48 hours. We are replying to emails according to the order in which we received them. Sometimes we get...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    I think the best answer is the one which I gave to one of our backers few minutes ago via email (he had similar question): It means, everyone noticed that our campaign slowed down, and we wanted that people will be sure it will be successful and they won't waste their time (at this point we...

    I'm not sure if we can avoid that in a simple way. Our newsletter providers are also working with other companies and sending their emails, so probably some of them people are marking as a spam. The only way to not getting our newsletter into the spam folder is marking our emails as "This is not...

    I think there is not a single photo of white version in this campaign. Only Navy Gray. I do not know how close you were following our forum topics, but we wanted this color to be similar to the one used by Navy on their aircrafts and ships: This is definitely not white!!! There might...

    There is a gallery on our website with many photos of Navy Gray case: https://imgur.com/a/bg1SnoR There are also many other photos showing this colour in a typical living room. Just read through whole campaign page :)

    Quick question: Did you have a time change last weekend? We updated the clock after that (-1 hour), so if you didn't refresh our website on your computer, then you probably had an old date. We would never to such thing like to make some "secret links" for our friends. There are no individual...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    On our website we have a timer showing time left to our indiegogo campaign. If I remember correctly, in this forum as designers/manufacturers we are not allowed to give you guys direct links to our "where-to-buy" websites. Because of that, the only thing I can write is the note, that all the...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    Yeah, it's great that someone finally did it, but on the other hand we saw how many things we should still improve in our manual, because he could get better performance than he did. For example, like Saper wrote, AIO's fan should be taking the air from outside of the case (page 13 of the...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    Small update! - Last month we ordered a batch of 50 Sentry 2.0 cases to check the repeatability of the current design. This week we received those elements and we can say that we are very happy with their quality. Right now we are waiting only for the feet for horizontal installation which we...

    We finally found time to make some photos of the revision 2.0 prototype no1. You can find image gallery here: link: https://imgur.com/a/J5dB6ds We still have many things to improve, so for sure there will be at least one more prototype before we will be able to check manufacturing...

    Like we said before, if our submanufacturer let us know that they can paint in white with the quality we want, then we will offer such colour. With version 1.0 and 1.1 we had a lot of problems (mostly time consuming) and additional costs connected with this colour (painting in a separate paint...

    In version 2.0 with short ITX GPU you will be able to insert 1x 3.5 HDD or if you will resign from dedicated GPU and you will stay with integrated one, then 2x 3.5 HDD will be also possible. Other points shouldn't be a problem.

    Yes, we are increasing the perforation on the side and on the bottom. No, removing the "heat shield" won't increase the ventilation. We tested it in several scenarios. If it would help, we would be doing it, because that additional element over the GPU probably is more expensive than a set of...

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    Really nice photos :) I have one question: If you will be using your case in a vertical position (on a stand), are you going to use the plugs we were sending with Sentry? I'm asking, because we saw many people who did not use them at all or were using feet instead (the same way you did in...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    For the last week we were analysing different options of the motherboard backside panel installation. Most of them are doable, but all of our ideas have an influence on the external look of the case and also would increase the time of production (longer manufacturing, bigger possibility of...

    Monster ITX model S and Model M unibody, not only state of art cases, it is work of art.

    I have some questions: 1. Are you sure about the location of your backup power switch? 2. You do not have vent holes over CPU cooler? 3. Aren't your photos somehow "mirrored"? (https://i.imgur.com/vCZgYo3.png). Because of the motherboard I/O panel it looks like your motherboard will work...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    One more thing to what Saper said: In the first post we wrote explanation for every improvement we mentioned (in spoilers). In point no.1 we explained that we want to make up to 65% bigger ventilation area than we had in Sentry 1.0 and 1.1. In such situation do you think you will still need...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    In the last week some people spoke negatively about motherboard backside access panel, but we haven't heard many opinions supporting it. We are still in the prototyping stage, so we think now it is the time to talk about things which make some controversy. Because of that we made our first straw...

    Wow. It looks like that someone is really reading that :) We were gathering feedback from our supporters/backers since last campaign. 90% of changes are based on their requests. It looks like most of our propositions are accepted (we will probably have to make some straw poll about...

    I have to add one point to this, because I found out that what I wrote is not fully true (Sorry for that). If the EU directive you are using enforces you to make a paper manual as a manufacturer, then yes, you have to make a "local language" version for a client, but only if you are legally...

    This would reduce the maximum allowed height for some coolers. Under mobo we have some space to hide this panel. Over it some coolers would not fit if we will stay with the same case external dimensions.
