Today we packed the last five pallets with 270 packages that will be collected on Tuesday by DHL. Everyone should have a confirmation E-Mail with the tracking link. If you don't have a tracking link please contact me via the Kickstarter message system. (16 backers does not have a tracking link because they need to update the address, I contacted all of them)

Important Information!

Please monitor your tracking status. If DHL or your local shipping company is unable to meet you at the door they will bring it to a package shop and you have 7 days to pick it up. If you miss that deadline they will return it to me. This could take very long and you have to pay reshipping and return shipping.

What can I do if shipping takes very long?

If the tracking will rest in a status for more than 15 days, please contact me and I will open a research task at DHL.

My product is damaged what can I do?

If you get your case and there is a problem with it, you should open a RMA ticket on https://dan-cases.com/rma.html. I will start handling RMAs next week.

Where can I get help with my build?

If you need help with your build, take a look in my official forum threads on Hardforum, Computerbase, Hardwareluxx or PCGH-Extreme. You will find the links in the FAQ on https://www.dan-cases.com/dana4_faq.html

Thank You!

The Kickstarter campaign was a great experience. Thank you so much for your great support and the great time. You let my dreams of a compact ITX gaming case come true. I will be back on Kickstarter in the near future with new great products in the SFF sector.

      Dan,
      Just finished my building into V2, this is great. Turned of my intention to go with 545lc, already bought, because of the ram location on my Motherboard (h87i-plus) and power cable needed space.

      My suggestion for the next version is to ask corsair for shorter cable from SF450/600, maybe with some tolerance.

      At the end thanks for , it was a great journey also for me!

      Just wanted to say thanks, Dan! The case is beautiful and it was definitely worth the wait. Now I just gotta figure out what to build in this beauty.

      @Marc : You may don't know but Japanese Reseller try to release the case in December before X'Mas and Dan stop them from doing that. The Condition is they can do pre-order but don't ship until 1st Feb.

      Hi Dan,

      I did not receive my shipment tracking link yet. Please let me know.

    14. dKenGuru on

      Dan, do you can sell LianLi riser separate from v3 on your site or sell it for backers with discount as is extra component for your cases? Because black is needed color and find this riser in other shops is hard for some countries.
      Or may be add this as reward option in your next Kickstarter project.

    15. Phattarapong Chalermpattanapong on

      If they don't follow your condition. it's better to don't do the business with them next time.

      @Arkadiy Kulev
      container freight shipping to Europe from Taiwan ~ 5 weeks
      container freight shipping to Japan from Taiwan = faaaaaar shorter

      @Daniel
      1. Maybe try to cut the hole for the power cable in the front a little bigger, so that PCI-E power cables can be rooted through there.
      2. Relocating the mount for the 2,5" HDDs/or water cooling radiator a bit more to the front (at least about 4-6mm) so that 2,5" HDDs can be effortlessly connected with power and SATA cable from the other side (near the motherboard's/graphics card side - was unable to connect my cables to the HDDs, when I mounted them with the ports in the direction to the back panel)

      Everything else = brilliant

      V3 is identical to V2 I changed only the riser cable. It is more like v2.1. Furthermore the v2 has the premium 3M cable, but the production time of this cable is very slow so I made the decission to switch it. My Japan reseller ignored my sell deadline so this was not my fault.

      Dude. You really screwed us over with A4-SFX v3, didn't you. It took me almost a year to wait for v2. Japan stores had v2 even faster than you started shipping it. And now you're telling us that v3 will be available in a few months.

      Thank you for the v2. But fuсk you.
