Good looking, and a good value

Summary: I paid 60 dollars, and free shipping, so I'm giving it 5 eggs. At 80 to 90 dollars it would be a 4 egg probably? The one thing I cannot overstate is that it looks very classy!
Pros: Good sized, aluminum case. The finish is quite nice too for a 60 dollar case. The fans were quieter than I expected as well. I was planning on replacing them, but they seem OK. The look is VERY classy.
Cons: The panels are a bit thin. No cable management. There is no motherboard tray, and no cut out behind mobo to put a mounting block on it.
Summary: I learned a valuable lesson after wasting $50 on a cheap case for a simple computer for my kids. The power button broke and the whole thing was useless in just 6 months. So I went back to a maker I'd already used before, and ordered this Lian Li case. What a contrast!
Summary: Could have used a cut out for the MB tray. I think i know why the case is thicker then most steel ones, but thinner in the rear/font mounting holes for better compatibility for CLC pass through screws if that is possible. Make that 80mm top fan a 120 as well would be nice.
Pros: The case is fairly plain jane which i liked the best. Its not to flashy. The case goes back to the roots of the old cases with the top mounted PSUs (has to be mounted fan side down), and if you need extra exhaust the 80mm fan hole in the top would do fine. Rolled edges are a nice touch, really cl...
Cons: I have come to realize that the case is naturally thick. So be careful about mounting CLC coolers to the rear or front. The pass through screws might not be able to reach through the case, fan, and into the radiator. There is NO backplate cut out for the motherboard so install backplates for cool...
Summary: Love most of Lian Li's products, but this is one of their lowest end cases (priced like a high end case of any other brand) and its got the same cons as many other brans low end cases. I would have given this a 4-5 star if it wasnt $100 retail price
Pros: - Great build quality overall - Paint finish is durable and looks great - Nearly 0 plastic - Can be completely dissasembled - 2 powerful fans (front and back), - Tons of room for a mid tower, fits extra tall heatsinks with no problem - Comes with all the extra screws you will ever need
Cons: - HDD and 2.5" bays are not tooless, plus you have to take off both side panels to secure a dvd drive. It is nearly impossible to properly secure anything, because after taking the back panel off, the motherboard tray is in the way for the front screws - If you take the hard drive bracket out of ...
Pros: I forgot how much I loved my lian li's till I got this case and I was like.. I love you and then it looked at the parts I bought and it was like I want you inside of me .. and I was like oh yeah!
Pros: All aluminum and lightweight. Everything comes apart for build purposes including the top and front panel. PSU area is large enough to accommodate today's 1600W PSU's without a problem (not possible with our stockc of classic Coolermaster cases....sigh). Enough front bays to add 2 Bluray burners,...
Summary: If you need lots of room and want a high-quality case, I recommend this one. Almost two years of use and it has done everything I need. I've added or replaced multiple components and the case has made doing this easy.
Pros: * Very easy access to all internal parts * Plenty of room for many drives, CPU cooler, etc. * Plenty of space for the unused power supply connectors * Quiet * Front fan screen is easy to clean * Great value
Cons: * Very slight rattle in disk enclosure, easily fixed with some padding
Summary: Bought the optional 120mm fan which draws heat off of two OC videocards and exhausts it through the grill in side panel. Nice touch having additional fan exhaust hot air through the top also.
Pros: Always a fan of LIan Li cases for more than 10 years, all previous were silver but I like the big simplistic styling, removable HDD tray, efficient fan layout, plentiful available accessories, and lightweight.You never have to fight with cards not lining up between MB rear slots. Doesn't seem to ...
Cons: Stock fans are ok but I install ADDA or TopMotor fans in all my cases.
