Still a better love story than twilight.

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: Good solidly built case for Full ATX board. Definitely not fancy but fully functional. Does not feel as though the sides are going to get pushed in like some of the other inexpensive cases that I have used. Front panel pops off and on easily for Drive insertions and adjustments. Plenty of room fo...
Cons: It would be nice for the area that the motherboard is fastened to be detachable, but that would probably drive up the price.
Pros: Sleek, lightweight, and well ventilated. I chose this case to replace a much older full tower, and it holds all my parts where they need to be.
Cons: There is a dent on the right side that was most likely caused by shipping. The dent is on the side of the case that will face a wall, so I'm not concerned, but Newegg should take more care when shipping these units.
Summary: I swore by this case for a simple home build. I've used several building machines for family members. I currently use the Corsair Obsidian Series 550D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case that I also purchased from here. If you are looking for a quieter case, I would go with that.
Cons: The front USB ports along the bottom of the case are not great placement. You may have trouble plugging in some devices. Side panels are pretty thin and flimsy. This helps with the weight, but means extra care is needed to prevent dents.
Pros: High quality material, consistent finish, good amount of space, and overall just looks good.
Cons: Occasionally rattles and hums, which gets extremely annoying. Does not have the K-Slot for security locks. Very surprising for a case of this cost, as my Dell has one. The paneling actually seems to have a hole cut out for this purpose, but the case frame doesn't.
Summary: Solid construction, very quiet stock fans. Space to add a blowhole fan too if you need it.
Pros: I like this case very much. I found it very sturdy with good airflow got two OC'd 560's running at 50C in there under load. I did not have an issue with the moterboard tray as the case is fairly spacious in that respect. The only thing I wish would change is the hard drive bays - I'd rather they ...
Cons: Hard drive bay position, lack of removable drive bay.
Summary: hope lian li can address the small details in the next revision but overall it's hard to beat lian-li - and impossible to beat them in the aluminum case segment.
Pros: aluminum build will never rust corners are all machined flat for less risk of unzipped skin on hands and wrists all the screws and nuts and bolts you need are included. 120mm fans for quieter airflow! fits tower coolers easily all the front panel connectors fit the motherboard without need to res...
Cons: no SSD 2.5" drive mounts no cable management ducts lian li sticker ruins the spartan aesthetics no removable motherboard tray too many fan grills blocking the airflow and creating noisy turbulence.
