It makes you wonder just how many orders PCS crank out each week doesn't it, they should do a YouTube tour of the operation.
I'm not sure how long ago this was because they did move properties a little while back, but here's a video:


It's a lot more than most people realise, I believe average is about 2000 units a week, holiday seasons or new release moments it can be up to 5000 apparently.

I’m almost a little bit in awe, mainly because 99% of the completed build pics we see posted here have really tidy cable work.

Putting a PC together well is a technique, but good cable management is an art. To be able to do that with those numbers is very impressive.

Well done, PCS cable guru. I salute you.

All of my PC's have been awesome re cable management, thinking back, I think I had an option to have the 'super special cable tidy build' or some such thing, circa 2014 I don't think they offer it now, although I may be confusing it with the super fast build option, which isn't a thing now either.

On the liquid series they offer a whole range of braided cables for the system

I see on the standard builds they offer that for the PSU cables now which is good.

A company I once purchased a PC from offered cable management by their ‘master builder’ for an extra thirty quid…

Welp, looks like my great wait just got extended:(. Apparently it doesn't matter when you place an order for items in stock. My build date was tomorrow but I've just been informed the case for my build is no longer in stock, even though the pre production date was 11th of Nov.

Have you considered changing the case? You had the 4000D, right? 4000X isn’t much of a price increase… and is a little sexier.

Stock comes and goes mate, if you let us know your build we can suggest other cases that are in stock to get it moving again?

The Coolermaster K500 and Lian Li LANCOOL cases are both close to budget excellent cases as well

I stuck with this. I feel like I've seen my unborn baby's face for 3 weeks now and grown attached so last minute changing is kind of a bummer.

So funny yet so true! It is a bummer I had time change my case too :( But hopefully with the good stock on the 3060ti and changing my case it should be in building tomorrow

The 4000x does look appealing with it's 3 included rgb fans, but the glass panel in the front also seems a bit strange where is the air intake
