Best Case I've ever owned

Jesse W., Newegg
1 November 2015
  • Summary: I would buy from them again.
  • Pros: High Quality Aluminum Construction ATX motherboard dropped right in. No extra stands needed Plenty of hardware left over No cheap tool less snap in garbage for drives and I/o cards Light weight Fastest
  • Cons: over $100. Aluminum does not feel like it could take a fall and not be mangled. Keep on floor that's what its designed for. Case wires, audio, USB 3.0, sata cables are on top and could get in the way if you plan on using an optical drive

Excellent case - incredible value!

Anonymous, Newegg
17 April 2015
  • Summary: I seriously cannot think of a case (even at twice the price - Silverstone FT01B) that is better built than this one. Great value!
  • Pros: I tried four cases before this for my new build - Thermaltake V51, Nanoxia Deep Silence 1, Antec V100 and Silverstone FT01B. Every single one of them had at least one serious flaw that I could not live with for the price paid. This case is exceptional for the price, especially with the 30% promo ...
  • Cons: 1. Noise level was higher than I expected (*relatively speaking*) with all three stock fans running. After replacing the 2 front fans with a Noctua 140mm fan the system is barely audible now. 2. Another 5 mm of space behind the MB would make for even better/easier cable management 3. Only "major"...

Good Case for An Entry Level Workstation

Roger W., Newegg
6 March 2015
  • Summary: I purchased this case for an engineering workstation build featuring an ASUS P8C WS, an Xeon E3-1250V2 CPU, 32 GB of DDR3-1600 with ECC, a 970GT EVGA graphics Card, a Pioneer Blue Ray Burner and a 10 GB RAID 5 harddrive array.
  • Pros: A large ATX case that is perfect for an entry level workstation. Excellent cooling capability. Comes with removable filters for the front fans which blow over the harddrive cage. The internal hard drive rack can accommodate up to six hard drives with an effective sound deadening. Internally, this...
  • Cons: The aluminum feels a little flimsy compared to a Lian-Li Case I purchased in 2002. Fitment is not as tight as the older case.

Love This Case!

Ryan P., Newegg
14 July 2014
  • Summary: This has been the best case I have ever had. It is a good split between cost and features, and it more than holds all my components. I hope Lian Li makes more mid-range cases like this because this one is awesome.
  • Pros: Lightweight, cool, clean look, easy to get stuff in and out of, and it is cheap for a Lian Li case.
  • Cons: Lacks a top fan.

best case I have ever had

Tom Y., Newegg
8 July 2014
  • Pros: I have built many computers in my life. this case has the most room, easiest mechanism for hard drive mounting. PSU on the bottom, which makes sense to me so it is not top heavy. Plenty of room for pci cards, graphic cards, etc. I use an i7-sandy bridge 3930K 6 core, 32 GB, ASUS Radeon HD 7790. I...
  • Cons: Cost, but you get what you pay for. I wish it is easier to get all the little power, reset, hdd, speaker leds plugged into the motherboard, but there is no real solution to sovle that.

Quality case

Jacob S., Newegg
24 April 2014
  • Summary: I've used this case for over two years now and it's been excellent. The filters protect the interior from probably 85% of the dust that would otherwise enter the case. I don't overclock much, but my temps are always very low. Much lower than any other setup I have had.
  • Pros: - Solid high quality materials and construction - Well-planned design (cable management, drive locking mechanism, airflow) - Small touches like removable / cleanable fan filters make this feel like you're getting a lot for the money. - Very cool case with my setup (augmented stock fans w/ a few S...
  • Cons: - Power buttons are little cheap feeling - Front of the case pops off a little two easily for my taste

Very much worthwhile

Anonymous, Newegg
9 April 2014
  • Summary: I really like this chassis. It's not a M1 tank, but now 2 years on, mine is still very solid. As another piece of advice for anyone looking at computer cases... positive air pressure is your friend. You want more fans pointing in than you want pointing out.
  • Pros: Wow, it's truly an excellent case. The brushed aluminum finish is very handsome. It doesn't show many fingerprints. The front fascia (incorrect term) pops off nice and easily. It's a quick job to clean. The included fan filters are pretty nice and trap a lot of dust. Cleaning them is easy too--ju...
  • Cons: Don't plan on using a 140mm fan up top. When I did that, the top of the case got this annoying rattle. Maybe I messed up screwing it in, but it was annoying enough that I removed it. It didn't really do anything.

Lian Li. nuff said

Rebecca W., Newegg
30 March 2014
  • Summary: True story: I've been buying Lian Li for my own cases for years now. I was first exposed to them by my college roomate who was building a watercooled computer in the classic Lian Li case that has evolved into the PC v1020 we see today.
  • Pros: Everything about this case, nay Lian Li, screams quality and minimalistic design. In the high end computer case world there are two types of cases: one that screams "HEY LOOK AT ME!" and the beautiful brushed aluminium finish that doesn't show off, but upon close examination shows its beautiful q...
  • Cons: I have to nitpick when it comes to cons. Anytime you purchase a bottom-mounted case, understand that it is not yet the industry standard and that PSU manufacturers may or may not be thinking of that when making cable lengths. Measure your PSU 4/8 CPU power lead and make sure it is long enough. I ...

perfect shiny blackness

jeff w., Newegg
18 January 2014
  • Pros: Got this recently from Newegg for $79 with a $20 rebate making this the best case ever bought for $59 out of pocket. Not sure what the complaints are.....there are little openings all over the motherboard mounting side of the case so routing cables is very possible if it is thought through before...

Still great!!

Anonymous, Newegg
12 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this case in April, 2012, and still love it. I installed some Noctua fans in it and it's super quiet, if not silent. The LED's are not super bright, which is a good thing. The removable top is a great idea, because it aids in the installation of the CPU cooler. I'd buy it again!!
  • Pros: Solid build quality. Removable top. Removable top fan cover.
  • Cons: None.
