R40 Availability Update

While we had hoped to release the R40 for sale at the end of the first quarter when push came to shove we both agreed that it was not perfect, improvements could be made and in our quest to bring to market the perfect chassis we decided to hold out for a bit longer and make these changes.

So whats new?

  • A cable managment plate into the rear of the case to hide all of the mess that can sprawl from a PSU in a small build.
  • Anti vibration grommets have been added to the pump mounting plate as standard to further reduce vibrations and noise
  • Anti vibration grommets have been added to the hard drive mounting system
  • New Vibration damper plates in the top and bottom of the case to further reduce chassis vibrations

What now?

At the moment the cases are being boxed and getting ready to make their way across the open ocean to our store in the UK, from there we will open for sale through the store and release the first batch of cases into the wild.

From both of us, thank you all for your incredible support and patience! The response has been genuinely overwhelming and we cannot wait to see what you guys have planned for your own R40’s!

Win the first R40

Having both been a part of the PC/modding community for many years we really wanted to give something special back. That is why we will be giving away the very first R40 that leaves Hex Gear HQ!

Before the official launch of our new chassis we will go through all of the orders placed in the store and pick a customer at random. This lucky winner will be able to choose a black or white R40 chassis as well as an accent pack to go along with it.

To be in with a chance of winning simply place an order in the store here.


  • Entries are counted per order not per items ordered
  • Competition open worldwide
  • Winner will be drawn at random from the order numbers
  • Winner will be announced before the R40 launch
  • Winner will receive their choice of 1x white or 1x black R40 plus 1x accent pack
  • No substitute or cash alternative available
  • Competition closes March 20th 2015
  • Delivery will be via courier no more than 30 days after the competition closes

Price & availability

We have been blown away by all the interest this has gotten so far and we have received a lot of questions regarding when the cases will be available and how much they will cost.

We are currently sorting out the final details with the manufacturing team and will be receiving the first batch of cases in the first quarter of 2015. We do not have an exact retail price, but we do know that it will be less than £200


Best regards and thanks for your interest
