Pros: Great look, excellent build features for what I need.
Cons: Stock fans suck and screws can easily strip screw holes. Buying all new fans in less than a month. Fan blades literally snapped off upon firing up. Never touched them other than plugging them in.
Summary: This was my very first build, and a challenging one at that since I wanted a HTPC on steroids. This case made my dream possible!!! Its not easy to make a mid grade to high end gaming rig and or OC friendly rig in a htpc platform when obviously space and airflow is always a compromise.
Pros: *Light *Elegant *superb build quality and finish *Practical
Cons: *Front Lianl-LI sticker *Non PWM fans *No included lid screen *Price
Summary: I put another 140mm fan next to the drive bay but before I did that I took the filter off that since it's an exhaust fan and not a fresh air fan. I figured it's a moot point to have a filter on one that is blowing hot air out.
Pros: Smaller Case that supports an ATX board along with an AMD R9 280X GPU. Plenty of ventilation along with a couple of 140mm fans. My Artic Cooler CPU fan is 135mm tall and it fits in here as well. your HDD's will fit with an optional 140 mm fan just be mindful of the way you put your HDD bay bracke...
Cons: My complaint would be no rear exhaust fans but I did read that before I bought it.
Summary: Some of the complaints about this case are warranted, but there's a lot that aren't. If your concern is good air flow, you don't buy a HTPC case... period. If you want a case that's easy to swap components without much disassembly, again you don't buy a HTPC case.
Pros: Light Weight, Heavily Expandable, ATX and mATX Compatible, USB 3.0, eSATA, Sleek Design.
Cons: Lots of Screws, Additional Fans Needed, Loud OEM Fans, Pricey for what you get.
Summary: I have spent several thousand dollars this year at Newegg one would expect them to correct an error in a way that didn't cost me more. After all its Neweggs error
Pros: nice case
Cons: I ordered the Black case you sent me the Silver case that doesn't match my TV or AV gear I thought Newegg would exchange the item and send the correct item to me . When I ordered this item I used a promo code discount and there was when ordered the case free shipping. Now the price is much higher...
Summary: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186065 Get this HSF, it is the largest air cooler with the best TDP you can get for this case. Door for the cd drive broke, but it's my fault for dropping it and they sell replacements. Remember it's delicate. Fixed it with some epoxy.
Summary: Good case for an HTPC. Decent amount of room left over once everything is installed. I wish the Lian Li logo was removable
Pros: Solid case, sturdy.
Cons: Had to remove one HDD bay so I could comfortably fit the PSU. The inside of the case almost seemed like a puzzle. Certain pieces/components had to be removed and installed in certain order so they would fit. Cannot see the optical drive light when in use. Dust covers for the fans are pretty cheap...
Summary: Seriously, this thing looks much better in the pictures. This is the lightest, thinnest, flimsiest, congested, aluminum puzzle you've ever seen. The positive reviews from other people are from people who are easily pleased... or have no experience with other cases. I'm having major buying remorse.
Pros: Aluminum USB 3.0
Cons: Flimsy Congested Drive Bay Cage Optical Bay Door wont close Covers key components
