I must have bought the last one... Ever (Too bad)

Christopher M., Newegg
8 January 2011
  • Summary: A fantastic case. Only wouldn't reccomend it if you plan on having more than like 4 hard drives. If your using it the intended way, this case will hold three hard drives and a flash solid state drive. Or, it can hold three hard drives and a floppy drive.
  • Pros: Anodized Aluminum Case. Lightweight. Beautiful looking. Great Airflow. Easy to maintain and work inside. Wonderful Features. And it's a Lian Li Case for only like 90 bucks! I'm telling you, I love this case. I bought it for a client's build cause it just looked perfect and was on sale. It was a b...
  • Cons: The biggest con for me was I was struggling so hard to keep fingerprints off of it. The removable side panels take some care to remove without scratching other parts of the case but it wasn't extremely difficult. An experienced builder could handle this, a first timer would likely scratch the cas...

Perfect Case

Brian M., Newegg
31 October 2010
  • Summary: This is not the cheapest case in the world but is a good example of getting what you pay for. Really love the side entry HDD mounting system and the anti-vibe mounts. Nice looking case with ample room inside. I will definitely buy again for my next build.
  • Pros: Excellent HDD mounting system Front Audio/USB/Power Two quiet fans High Quality Design
  • Cons: None

Reminds me of the PC-65

Kristin L., Newegg
18 October 2010
  • Summary: I've owned the PC-65B. It was a way better quality build. It was $30-40 more though.
  • Pros: Aluminum. Super light. Two 120mm low noise fans. Anti-Vibration screws. Front panel fan filter. Best case in this price range for sure.
  • Cons: No removable motherboard tray, but you get what you pay for. Feels a little more flimsy than the pc-65b. Front panel audio cable is too short for most motherboards.

16 May 2010
  • Summary: It is a beautiful case but I am disappointed that I have to change out the stock fans and/or add a PCI fan kit or even change the 5.25 drive covers to perforated covers to address the heat problem.
  • Pros: The case is quiet. It has a quality build to it, clean lines; minimalists look, very nice looking.
  • Cons: Audio cable is too short; the cable has to stretch across the mother board and is right next to the CPU to get to the audio header. The USB ports are installed upside down. Even thought the case is quiet, it appears not to have enough air flow. When I remover the side panel my i7 drops 5 to 6 deg...

I love it

William S., Newegg
4 May 2010
  • Summary: This purchase was based on good results with a previous Lian Li case. I wasn't disappointed. Being an engineer, I can appreciate great design and quality manufacture. It doesn't have any flashing lights, just a functional case with well thought out features.
  • Pros: Light weight, sturdy, and makes the computer build easy. Great instructions.
  • Cons: Costs more than most but you get what you pay for.

A Great Case

Diana S., Newegg
2 February 2010
  • Summary: I have purchased over 45 LianLi cases and this is my favorite of all.
  • Pros: Lightweight but sturdy. I really like the USB and audio ports in the front middle of the case. This brand of case is the only one I can do a build with without cutting my hands. Great air flow!
  • Cons: Front fan wire could be a bit longer.

  • Summary: I love, LOVE lian li cases. How anyone buys any thing other than their superior products is beyond me. This case for the money is more than i expected. I bought an optional side panel with a window that lian li makes for about 40 dollars, and it just makes this case even more beautiful.
  • Pros: -Great layout -Quite yet efficeint fans -Beautiful brushed aluminum, but to be expected of lian li.
  • Cons: -No instruction manual? I swear most lian li cases come with even a little peice of paper that tells you how to install things. This really is a non issue for me as i've built dozens of lian li cases but i could see how some things could be confusing for people new to builds. - 3 pin power led li...

GREAT Case!

Anonymous, Newegg
20 December 2009
  • Summary: System: Intel i5 750 @ 3.28ghz (Corsair H50 for cooling) MSI P55-CD53 G. Skill 1333 DDR3 2x2GB 500GB Western Digital HD EVGA GTX 260 Antec TruePower New 650w
  • Pros: This is an amazing case! It is well thought out, and the build quality is excellent. It doesn't get any better than shiny aluminum (unless of course you like black interiors). Everything installed easily, and there is enough room in the case to properly lay out cables for good airflow/ventilation...
  • Cons: These are really just nit-picks because I couldn' t find a case I liked with all of the criteria I was looking for that was within my budget: - No removeable mo-bo tray - No cut-outs for cable management behind motherboard - Can't flip hard-drive cage around so cables will plug in on the back sid...

Back to the Basics

Jim C., Newegg
15 December 2009
  • Summary: This is a basic case, there are no fancy modular or tool free features here, and I like that. My last case had all kinds of tool free features, but I ended up having to remove some of them and they weren't always as easy as using a screw.
  • Pros: Very Light, Very Sturdy, Quiet, Cool, and Looks Good The ability to insert the power supply from the back makes assembling your system a lot easier by installing the PSU last. If your PSU is not modular, you don't have cables in the way while installing your MB/CPU/MEM, etc. If your PSU is modula...
  • Cons: The front Panel USB ports are upside down, and the hard drive cage isn't (easily) removable. The hard drive cage looks like it can be removed by removing 4 screws on the bottom, but I didn't try it. Neither of these are worth knocking off an Egg, but the front USB ports do bother me a bit. When u...

Suprisingly good.

Curtis H., Newegg
15 October 2009
  • Summary: I was searching for a simple case with clean lines and not a lot of alien-led or plastic parts/doors etc. The Lian Li is all aluminum and has only the simplest of lines. This is an outstanding case that looks high end because it is. It's is suprising that it costs as little as it does actually.
  • Pros: Simple and elegant appearance I was looking for, with outstanding ease of use. The hard drive mouting system (3 drives max) is very nice, featuring rubber grommet HD mounts that slide in and clip in place reducing vibration. All panels remove/install easily and more than enough screws are provide...
  • Cons: I do wish I had just one additional 3.5" external bay and one less 5.25", but thats for my set up...
