Summary: Yikes out of stock I should have ordered a couple more! I hope Lian-Li continues this exact top mounted PSU Case. Thank you New-Egg for shipping this from California and in perfect condition!
Pros: fit and finish next to none, perfect in every way. I need the PSU top mounted for specific cooling reasons. and this all aluminium certainly fits my cooling needs. Hard Anodized machine surface on all panels, and all cool good heat transferring Aluminium materials. Love it 10 stars!
Summary: I've had this case for at least 6-7 years, didn't even know they were still selling it. I've had multiple boards, fans, and video cards in it over the years. It fits everything and looks plain yet stylish in the room.
Pros: Great configuration, easy to modify, simple and classic style.
Summary: I think the finish is machined aluminium with black hard anodising, this is the best way to strengthen aluminium products. and aluminium helps your build run much cooler than plastic or steel. Thank you New Egg for providing the best products and the fast arrival in perfect condition using UPS.
Pros: It is LIAN LI, that really says it all. I have built many PC's and this is my second LIAN LI case. My other was a K7 Metal bones, but this all aluminium case is my very favourite. and I prefer the PSU top mounted to help remove heat that rises to the top of the case, plus the case that I received...
Cons: no cons at all, I just hope they continue making this version.
Pros: The Obvious Pros -Lian Li build quality. -All aluminum chassis. -Elegant aesthetics. The Not so Obvious Pros, -Lots of accessories for this case, different HDD cages with Hot-Swap backplane, etc. -Inexpensive when on sale. -recessed Motherboard area. -front fan blows right through to GPU -Has USB...
Cons: I have no cons but it should be noted that this case is incredibly light, the aluminum thickness is more than enough for structural support, however, it's also more susceptible to wear and tear if you mishandle it.
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...
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
