I just got 3 of the Mod Crate boxes and am very impressed with the quality everything fits very well, you do need to sand the back of the buttons a little and the board mount holes are not tapped both of which are no problem at all.  They come with hex socket screws for the case and torx 5 screws for the boards (1 set was black so I will uses ss ones I had already).  I will post some more details and pics in a few days, just a heads up they did a great job.

6th to the 10th, but the 6th was the release date so would have been in a queue.

I wouldn't advise anyone to do what I did and use the screws to cut the board mount thread, I sheared a stainless steel screw in the aluminium housing and have made on of my enclosures scrap metal.  I tapped M1.6 threads in the 3rd with an HSS tap, I should have done that from the get go.

No, I don't do videos, atm they look like this, but the brushed one has a broken board mount screw so can't be used and I don't fancy my chances of drilling it out.

can you drill out the broken half of the screw from threading, then re-tap?

I would need about 1.2 mm drill to be able to use a M1.6 tap after, I only have a Dremel pillar drill and the because the screw is a lot harder than the body and 1.6 mm drill bend easily I don't think I could do it. And there is not enough screw showing to grip.

Put mine together today. I swapped over the board from a 3d printed reference case so the screen was already mounted and secured in the proper place. I went from a vt 510 to the evolv 510. The buttons didn't require any adjustments and fit without rattling, NICE! The only massaging required was on the sidewalls, which were about 0.5 mm too thick on both sides, to allow the board to sit down on the mounts. After that everything went smoothly. The overall fit and finish is awesome and I am very pleased. Thanks ModCrate!
Here is a pic of the finished product (along side some other evolv-powered mods):
