Pros: This case looks fantastic sitting in an entertainment rack. Moving the fan out of the way before installing a power supply was easy and quick. Installing all the components was a bit of a challenge which you should expect with a case of this size and type. Don't hesitate to buy it.
Summary: All around great case, I work for an embedded systems company and one of the engineers suggested this chassis to me and he didnt steer me wrong!
Pros: This case is the perfect case for a HTPC! It fits in great on my electronics shelf below my wall mounted TV. Blends right in with my surround sound receiver, Xbox 360, and HD DVR box. The full size ATX powersupply is a great feature. I am not sure why there are complaints about the power supply n...
Cons: It has a slightly longer depth than standard receivers etc. So it was a good thing i mounted my TV on the wall so that the PC could sit where the TV would be on the top shelf. Looks great regardless so I wouldnt consider this a con but if you need it to fit on a standard shelf... dont expect it t...
Summary: Quick release should be installed for the support brace in order to swap PCI cards on the fly.
Pros: This is my second Lian-Li case. I bought this case for an HTPC build to run XBMCbuntu Eden. It's beautifully designed and comes with extra hardware.
Cons: The only thing is I suggest a space saving or modular power supply. It's a tight squeeze between the cd/dvd drive and the psu. You might have to relocate the installed fan to fit a full-size power supply.
Summary: It was annoying to have to move the case fan, but not a deal breaker. Mostly I was disappointed in LianLi's measuring ability. The misfitting InfiniTV card is a bigger concern. I'm don't have metal shop tools...and I don't want to do a hack job on it!
Pros: Beautiful. Quiet. Small. Well-constructed. This HTPC replaced a similarly sized High Def OTA tuner as well as a stand alone BluRay player, and added DVR. Great space saver! Intel-supplied CPU fan fits, keeps the box cool, quietly.
Cons: Power supply didn't fit. The Seasonic X-400/SS-400FL came into contact with the edge of the case fan. I was able to move the fan to the other side of the case. The power supply didn't block the fan opening, so air flow was not compromised. (I tried another ATX power supply I had around and - not ...
Pros: Quality materials, plenty of venting, and highly fashionable. What you expect from a Lian Li branded product.
Cons: The dimensions listed on Newegg's product page are inaccurate. Newegg lists it as 17.1"x3.7"x14.9". The depth is closer to 16" rather than 14.9", which is a big enough difference so that it doesn't fit in my multimedia cabinet. The official measurements supplied by Lian Li is 435 x 107 x 400mm (W...
Summary: This is my 3rd Lian Li case build, they are always great quality cases. I think they are over priced, but you do get what you pay for everytime, a high quality case. I was using old parts, so decided to splurge on this case, no regrets.
Pros: Great HTPC case, looks fantastic. Bigger then I expected but still a nice size, Room to work, descent cable managment, tight behind PSU and Dvd so go modular psu. Plenty of space for addtional hard drives if you get a bit creative. Case fans are dead quite. Bloodless install
Cons: My build issues were not realy cons. I had to move a fan from so PSU would fit and reverse both to blow in. Lots tiny screws! Oh the dvd drive switch is a bit tricky to get setup or was for me, but that is more to do with the dvd.
Pros: well built, good cooling with the fans, use modular power supply with large top fan, and use proper cpu heatsink with top fan.. my components http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341016 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128357 http://www.newegg.com/Produ...
Cons: not much room for video card.. the best currently i can find is a gt430 (recommend fanless) was running gt210 but cannot run any games with this.
Pros: -A good low profile HTPC case -Dual fans, very quiet -Looks great
Cons: Only one - if you want to use this case with a Ceton InfiniTV 4 tuner cablecard pci card, there is a problem. The black top of the frame in the back of the case along with the overhang of the case cover hangs too low to install the M-cablecard (that you get from your local cable TV provider) into...
Summary: It seems to be well manufactured - meaning that the screws line up properly and motherboard and normal size ATX power supply mount properly in case. It just fails miserably on the internal design with hard drive placement, but cannot blame manufacturing process.
Pros: Looks nice.
Cons: Poorly designed internal layout. CD/Hard Drive bay - should be more open to allow more air flow over hard drive. Rotating HD bay 90 degrees from CD and moving it closer to front of case should allow HD to run cooler w/fan blowing on it and would probably fit nicely. Not enough fans and cannot tur...
Summary: Would have been a 5 but the flimsy opener knocks it way down, now my case looks sad
Pros: Looks gorgeous sitting in with my home theater equipment. Well thought out case
Cons: DVD opener is very very flimsy. In putting it together, a little black plastic piece popped out, now the opener won't close - for such a well put together case, this cheap piece is quite the oversight
