The best HTPC case EVER ...and I've built many!!! If you want to build a Gamer/HTPC this is the case for you!

Summary: My experience building an HTPC using this case: For me the deciding factor was the ability to accept BOTH a high-end graphics card (up to 370 mm in length) AND the fact that it has room for a power supply capable of effortlessly powering my build. ...and let’s be honest...
Pros: All Aluminum, tons of room, high quality, very "customizable". If you want to build a Gamer/HTPC you need to take a look at this case! If you’re building an HTPC and want the flexibility of being able to use a high-end graphics card and the ability to use a high wattage power supply this is indee...
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: I should have researched my components better. Perhaps a Zalman cooler and quieter video card (one with large fans) would have solved the problem. I quit gaming on this because of the noise. I replaced it with a much quieter Silverstone case but I think the Lian-Li case keeps components cooler.
Pros: Solid aluminum case. Precision built. Everything fit nice: one SSD, Blu-Ray burner, EVGA 480 GTX, Corsair HX 850 PSU, EVGA X58 SLI3 mobo... If noise doesn't bother you this will keep definitely your components cool. Plenty of room. FWIW the PCI slots on the back are precision cut from the same al...
Cons: The silver does not look the same as the product pictures. Way less luster in person. The pictures look better than the real thing.
Pros: Extremely well built, everything fits the way it is supposed to. Design permits cabling to be easily run. Fit and finish is terrific, looks great on a shelf with a hifi system. HD cages have mechanical isolation so hard drive noise is very low.
Cons: Only one for me and it's because I have a large power supply...a large power supply intrudes on hard drive depth on one side. Again, not a flaw, but it's the one thing that is not perfect for me.
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...
