08 Mar - About the production of The Beast [Update]

Updated: Apr 26

Last week, we received the USB-C extension cables for the front panel. Not only the length is custom, but also the fact we made an extension compatible with USB-C front panel port, this to extend the compatibility and possibility to use that type of cable, whatever your motherboard. Indeed, usually the USB-C is connected to the "header", which is not available with all the motherboards. Thanks to this solution, most of the cards can now be connected to the USB-C. A second USB-C slot is also available at the back of the case. For those who have a motherboard that hasn't got a dedicated header (only one USB-C can be connected), that slot can be used for any other cables. Here some pictures of the cables.


Below, you will find our previous article highlighting all parts already completed.

Here is a short update concerning the production of The Beast launched in December.

Today, almost all parts in production are finalized and ready to be shipped.


Parts completed:

- the case (aesthetics & structure & brackets)

- the heatsinks

- the screws (about 70 kgs!)

- the cables for the front & back panel (USB-C excluded)

- the top mesh parts

- the tempered glasses

- the power buttons & reset buttons

- the GPU PWM cables & SMA cables extension


All these parts (1850kgs) will travel together by sea. The cargo is already booked and will leave the port on the 4th of February.


We only got a few pictures - mainly used for the quality inspection. Here some of them highlighting the structure of The Beast.


Parts in production:

- the risers

- the spreaders (ref 001 to 009)


The logistic has been quite challenging in this particular time as we really wanted to avoid too many separate shipments - this to avoid delays because of the pandemic, to reduce the costs and to reduce our ecological impact. We are thankful to work with great partners & suppliers who made this logistic as smooth as possible.


It's now time for us to wait for the delivery of all parts. What an exciting (and boring) moment!
