The price is mostly determined by the raw materials.

- 30x30mm aluminium bars,
- screws that hold the bars together,
- plastic end caps,
- motherboard standoffs,
- motherboard, GPU and PSU screws.

For each case we need some time to prepare the aluminium bars (drill holes, thread-in), and of course we would like to get some compensation for it. And at last, there is the value added tax (VAT 22%).

If you pay about 2.000 EUR for a mining rig with 4 GPU, you can afford a quality case for 80 EUR, don't you?

Check some other sites/ebay sellers, they have similar prices. We are based in EU, so the shippig time to European countries is very short, a few days. Also, there are no duty fees for EU residents. All that said, I think the price is reasonable. Do you think it's worth less?

Thank you!

We are preparing a stackable, 2-PSU, 6-GPU version. It should be ready for sale in a few weeks time.

Thanks! The power supply is held in place with three aluminium strips like this one:

Unfortunately, they are not visible in the gallery pictures. We will update the pictures to include this detail.

my suggestion is to start adapting your designs to future demand as gpu racks are becoming competitive...  Cheesy

Thanks for the info. Now I just need some Gridseed miners to prepare the design Smiley What is the easiest way to purchase those in Europe?

We've put a few images on the site about the PSU mounting:
