Amazingly space efficient design

Jason H., Newegg
27 November 2015
  • Summary: If your goal is a super space efficient, and semi-portable NAS server+moderate gaming, I don't think there is a better choice. Lian Li has always made the highest quality case, as well as a mature style/design, and this one is no exception (it's my third Lian Li).
  • Pros: Tiny size with up to 7 drives (if you include SSDs) Plenty of room for big video cards Surprisingly good cooling Lian Li build quality, of course The hot swap hard drive rack is superb; the clean look of the drives partially makes up for the hideous cabling, and it cuts the power cables you need ...
  • Cons: ATX power supplies fit, but it's reaaaally tight Cables are stuffed into every nook and cranny, impossible to make it pretty No front USB

Fantastic NAS Case

Daniel B., Newegg
10 November 2015
  • Pros: This case, and its storage for hard drives is fantastic. I have been using this case for more than a year to run my NAS, which is online 24/7. It has also moved with my across the US.
  • Cons: Side panel needs to be pushed in fully, or humming noise sometimes happens.

Decent but has its issues

Nicholas P., Newegg
23 October 2015
  • Summary: I've been using this case as a home server and it has performed exceptionally well. The interior fills up quickly, but that is to be expected from a smaller case design. There are plenty of storage mounting options and the cooling system design keeps the components well cooled.
  • Pros: Small form factor Easy to assemble Good cable routing options Sturdy design Good cooling design
  • Cons: Fan started making noise after 4 months of use Case is riveted together (no way to easily replace fan) Limited storage capacity

Bradley B., Newegg

  • Summary: I use this for NAS storage. It has been extremely difficult to find a case that works well in that application. This Lian-Li case is nearly perfect and I am very pleased.
  • Pros: Very well engineered high-quality case worthy of the Lian-Li branding. Fits a full ATX power supply in a very small case. Hot-swap trays work well. Easy to work with with the power supply at least partially removed. Good access to both sides. Side panels pop right off but hold securely. Case is v...
  • Cons: It can be difficult to work in and you must remove the PSU to access the motherboard. It is a very acceptable trade off to the small size.

One minor problem

Thomas C., Newegg
27 May 2015
  • Pros: Everything about the case is great.
  • Cons: There is a bracket riveted into the hdd area to mount a 2.5" drive. It was riveted in backwards so it is useless for that. Fortunately I have no intention of using a 2.5" drive there.

HDD cage does NOT come out

Gary S., Newegg
7 April 2015
  • Summary: I've been buying parts from newegg since 2001. I've never written a review before today. But the marketing materials for this are downright misleading.
  • Pros: It's pretty.
  • Cons: The marketing material says the HDD cage is removable. That is wrong. It is, in fact, quite firmly riveted in place. The TRAY at the bottom of the case can be removed but there's no way to get the gigantic cage out of it. If you're thinking about cramming a big PSU in this, think again.

Great small size, painful install.

Michael R., Newegg
6 January 2015
  • Pros: Case is small and very quiet. I feel confident of the build quality.
  • Cons: The front fan of mine kept hitting the dust filter causing an awful noise. I solved it by putting a few screw washers in between the fan and the filter. The metal coating of the case attracts finger prints and oil like I couldn't believe. The biggest problem I had is the HDD backplanes. Troublesh...

1 January 2015
  • Pros: Built a PC for a friend with this case with a final price of 35.99!!! Just insane how cheap this aluminum case was. So much room for expansion I loved the layout. Rubber mounted everything, tool-less disassembly, a real fun little case that looks great and was simple to build with. Was a shame to...
  • Cons: For the price I can't fault anything really, MAYBE you can find a gripe with no front usb ports but that's it.

Amazing Case

JOHN R., Newegg
9 December 2014
  • Summary: The case sides pop off without screws which is both a pro and a con. I had to maneuver my cables a little more because the pressure they were putting on the side behind the drive bay was causing it to pop out a little.
  • Pros: This case is incredibly well designed for the price, I currently have 5 3.5" HDDs and 1 2.5" SSD in there. It uses a backplane for the hard drives to plug in so you don't need as many power ports on the power supply, which is kind of nice. The way the whole 5 drive bay system works with the rails...
  • Cons: Cables going to the back of the hard drives are a little snug, but that's to be expected in a more compact case design. No USB port on the front of the unit, which makes it more inconvenient for booting off a flash drive. The standard ATX power supply was a little tight due to the way the cables ...

Scott L., Newegg
21 November 2014
  • Summary: This is my last purchase from Newegg - they USED to be a good place to buy from.
  • Pros: The case, as with all Lian Li cases I own is great - top quality, excellent fit and finish
  • Cons: none except for Neweggs onerous return policies
