Who is Red Harbinger?

We are a veteran owned and operated group of guys from all over the world who are very passionate about breaking the limits of what is currently offered in the computer case market.  Most people who have heard of us know us from the Cross Desk, a full computer desk that doubles as a dual PC case with ample room for liquid cooling systems, 2 full pc setups, and more storage than most people will ever use in their lifetime - all wrapped in a killer looking design.  We are a small company that thinks very large scale.  We have been fortunate enough to see a lot of traction with our designs in the past few months with HGTV and the DIY Channel and sites like PCWorld, Maximum PC, and PC Gamer taking interest in the versatility of our designs.  We constantly strive to break the mold with our PC designs - and we'd love your help!

What is Dopamine?

In short - Dopamine is the world's first actual computer case designed specifically with mining in mind.  As a happy byproduct of its design, it works just as well for extreme gaming setups and test bench purposes! 

In the past couple of years cryptocurrency mining has exploded. Today there are numerous types of mining that are suitable for everyone from average PC users with a decent computer to massive companies with server farms dedicated to the task.  Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin and many others have been in the headlines for what seems like an eternity now - but surprisingly not a single reputable PC case company has come to the table with dedicated cases that have been optimized and tailored for mining - and those few "cases" (mostly cobbled together using a complex and confusing series of metal rods) that do exist are extremely expensive for what you receive, difficult to assemble, and the majority of them are a complete eyesore.  Because of the cost vs. value of what is currently on the market, some people have even gone so far as to use modified milk crates and clothing racks to house their mining rigs.  Dopamine aims to solve this problem.

Features include:

  • High Quality Materials and Construction - Manufactured in the USA.
  • Multi GPU Support - 6 GPU expansion slots
  • Spaced Expansion Slots - allow for airflow around GPUs to assist in cooling
  • Multiple Form Factor Support - supports mini-ITX, micro-ATX, ATX, and extended ATX motherboards
  • Dual Power Supply Support - compatible with all standard ATX power supplies
  • Triple 120/140mm Fan Support - provide airflow allowing for assistive ambient cooling
  • Built-in PSU Shroud - hide unneeded PSU cables allowing for increased airflow and aesthetics
  • Built-in Cable Management - allows only the cables you need to be seen and connected 
  • Stackable Design - cases are scalable and can be easily stacked to fit any desired mining setup.
  • HDD/SSD support - compatible with all standard 2.5" and 3.5" drives.


No clue what this cryptocurrency mining is all about?  No Problem!

As hard as it is for us to believe sometimes, we realize that there is still a significant number of people who know very little about this subject aside from what they may have seen in news headlines.  We won't get into the myriad of benefits that cryptocurrency mining provides here, but we will say - regardless of whether you buy Dopamine or not, we'd suggest doing a bit of research on the topic to familiarize yourself if you haven't.  A bit of education is never a bad thing right?  And these days, it's very easy for an average PC user to dive right into mining and start reaping the benefits.

While Dopamine was designed with scalable mining systems in mind, versatility is always a key component of Red Harbinger's cases.  With that in mind, this case can also easily be built into an open air gaming PC, a test bench for hardware testing, or any other type of PC that you can think of.  Easy access to core components makes upgrading and adding parts a breeze.

What we need & what you get:

In order to proceed and be successful with this product, we have to hit an acceptable price point in manufacturing so that we can offer a fair price for the quality of goods that you'll recieve.  With low production quantities, the price per unit increases. So, like every other product, more = better.

As early adopters, your contributions will come at a lower-than-retail cost, and your investment will go into packaging, printing, hardware (nuts, bolts, screws, switches, grommets, etc), powder coating, manufacturing, assembly, shipping parts, tooling fees, designer costs, advertising, and distribution.  

To keep things interesting, we've gathered a bit of help from some of our friends and have lined up some pretty sweet rewards, including:

  • A chance to hang out with the Red Harbinger crew and our friends Vanilla Ice and 3x UFC World Champion Jens Pulver while filming and live streaming the release announcement of our next product
  • Special early adopter pricing
  • Limited Edition White Dopamine cases
  • Discounts on purchasing multiple systems
  • Fully loaded turnkey Dopamine systems that are ready to be plugged in and start mining 
  • Custom powder coat color schemes
  • Special forum access on the Red Harbinger website
  • Access to Red Harbinger's team and products - see our products in the development stage before they are publicly announced - voice your opinions throughout the design process
  • Early access and options to purchase all future Limited Edition products before the general public

The Impact

By supporting Red Harbinger's Dopamine case, you are directly and indirectly assisting the mining community's growth.

Your contribution also assists the evolution of function into function and form; no more milk crate Franken-cases or strictly utilitarian and less functional designs.  Much like ugly 90’s websites that “did the job” and glittery blinged out Myspace pages, we'd like those to be a thing of the past.

Although Red Harbinger is a small team -  we know what we are doing.  We are everyday folks with traditional jobs, the same as all of you - but we have the experience of globally releasing the most complex PC case ever designed (The Cross Desk).  With only 5 employees, we have managed to amass customers in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Spain, UK, Canada, Mexico, United States, Netherlands, Sweden, Singapore, and Korea and a global community following that is MUCH larger.  We want to continue this trend by getting fresh ideas to market - and only YOU can help us achieve this. 

Other Ways You Can Help

Without a doubt, Red Harbinger was built by the Internet Community at large sharing our designs, ideas, and love of taking something PC cases to the extreme.  Even if you can't assist financially, we would LOVE to have you help our cause by sharing this project on your social media pages.

By sharing, you are helping a group of everyday people do our part to continue ending routine and boring ideas.  Routine stuff sucks.  Dopamine is awesome - and we would really appreciate just a quick shout out to your friends and family to show them that a veteran based company is doing their part to make some waves.
