I had realistically lower expectations, but am pleased

Summary: Anyway I really like the case but again I was looking for a simple stylish silver case. I would say the main plus I am seeing right now is it is fairly quiet and does not seem to get hot or loud with gaming.
Pros: This is my 3rd PC build in the last 8 years so I have some ability, but in no way am an expert. I had a budget in mind and decided to cheap out a little bit on the case - trying to keep it around $100. My last PC had this giant black plastic looking case so I wanted to try a case that would match...
Cons: It had everything I needed but then again I was looking for a basic, elegant looking, non a giant plastic gaming type of deal that I previously had. I guess the only con was it does not have a clear window on side - I looked to see if there was one that I could add later but I did not fine one yet.
Summary: - I did not use or even test out the included fans. I installed a couple Noctuas right away. - This case looks great, in my opinion. I don't like most gamer-styled cases out there, and this is a very nice, classy, subdued design.
Pros: - High build quality. Everything just fits so well - no jury rigging or forcing pieces needed at all. - Adequate cooling. 2x 140mm intake fans in the front (only one fan+filter included). 1x 120mm exhaust fan in the rear (included). Two holes with rubber grommets are right under the fan space for...
Cons: - The USB ports and sound jacks on top are of mediocre quality. When I plugged in a USB cable or audio cable it just felt...odd. I don't think they'll break off or anything, but they do not have the same high quality as the rest of the case. - No optical drive bezel is included. Lian Li sells a s...
Summary: I'm using an older Thermalright 120 cooler on my CPU that requires at least 161mm of clearance in the case to install properly, so the PC-9N was on the short list of cases for me. I'm happy to report that it fits well here.
Pros: Roomy, lightweight, superbly constructed, lots of room for big video cards and tall CPU coolers, stunning to look at.
Cons: "Flimsy" isn't the right word, but this case, being all-aluminum, does have some flex to it that might be disconcerting if you've only had steel cases. It is not weak by any stretch.
Summary: Side panel gets hot when video card is fully loaded, I have the EVGA 780 Classified version so there is no space to install extra side fan, which is crucial for video card cooling.
Pros: This is my first Lian-Li case and I loved it. Always wanted to try this brand but ended up getting other case due to price. - Great quality aluminum materials all around the case - Light weight - Power bottom and USB port located at top for easy access - Anti-vibration design - Large video card s...
Cons: - No top fan installation port - Only 3x 3.5 HDD and 1x 2.5 HDD slot
Pros: this case has the looks! brushed aluminum finish with sleek minimalist design, what more can you ask for? Well there's more the entire case is aluminum constructed, extremely light and durable. The interior is quite roomy with a unique motherboard mounting system that increases airflow to the bac...
Cons: I would like to see a top mesh for additional airflow or water cooling mounting on the top of the case, but i don't think that would fit in the style of this particular case, as it is more of a minimalist oriented case.
Summary: Its a good buy. I always wanted a Lian Li case and I'm glad I finally bought one. The build quality is good and the design is tastefully restrained. I like the fact that this case isn't full of legacy stuff like firewire and a floppy bay either.
Pros: Well constructed case and tastefully designed Good workmanship Light Weight Accomodates 2.5" SSD's without 3.5" adapter No vestigial legacy stuff quiet fans and rubber grommets to dampen hard drive and fan noise Pre-installed motherboard standoffs matched my board :)
Cons: Hard to route cables behind motherboard Power and reset wires are practically in the top 5.25" bay. Be careful when installing your DVD drive in that bay.
