The best case!!!

Timothy W., Newegg
24 August 2014
  • Summary: lian-li, I would make everything removable charge the motherboard tray is removable winch is good but the hard drive cage is not removable, c-d cages is not removable, and the power supple is not removable. I like to see more of these cases, but everything removable
  • Pros: removable motherboard tray, compact, fits everything that I have that But still lots of air flow, sleet, the screws was a must for me. CPU -AMD Athlon X4 740 Trinity Quad-Core 3.2GHz MB -BIOSTAR A88M FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X memory-G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB GDDR3-1600 Storage -Seagate Barracuda 1TB C...
  • Cons: This was my first time working with a micro-case, so it took me a very long time to figure out how to put everything in. but once I got a hang of it and steep back, look back what a beautiful cases I love it that's probably the only con.

Don't expect top end everything.

  • Summary: I own two of the cases. Everyone (even the quasi tech geeks) is like THATS YOU COMPUTER? It looks gorgeous. Always draws questions. I run an I3 with a 750ti in the living room. I have a Silicon dust HD home run connected to windows 7 media center. Owns my dvr needs.
  • Pros: Great appearance and presences. People don't understand it"s a pc sitting next to my yamaha receiver.
  • Cons: Limited cooling and expansion.

Great for HTPC

Jacob.M.Beyer, Newegg
4 June 2014
  • Summary: A great case for the money and very solid with the build quality.
  • Pros: Great design, all black, good air flow, removable motherboard tray, love the Cube design.
  • Cons: Only one spot for the power-supply which isn't bad but if your power supply exhausts downward, that's straight into your cpu.

Great for tight spaces

Jeffery F., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: ASRock Z68 PRO3-M LGA 1155 Micro ATX MB I5 2400S (65 Watts) Cooler Master GeminII S524 Corsair RM650 PSU Radeon 6770 CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 CORSAIR Vengeance (low profile)
  • Pros: The designers of this case read my mind. I needed something that would fit on a deep bookshelf w/i an enclosed cabinet. This requires turning the case sideways...which makes having the DVD tray and audio/USB headers on the side panel nice feature. Otherwise, I would have had to turn the whole cas...
  • Cons: As others have mentioned, you have to remove several small screws to remove the side panels. Not really a minus for me because I don't have to get into the case too often. Even w/ a modular PSU, managing the cables is tricky. The Corsair RM650 was a little longer than my previous PSU and that too...

An excellent case

Alexander D., Newegg
22 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm happy with it, but it's hard to really point to anything specific about it that you can't find in something that is half the price. The shape itself is the only real advantage, and that doesn't seem likely to be terribly important, except for the fact that this case will never tip over, whereas...
  • Pros: Big enough for most users without being too big. Wont tip over. Looks very good. Good quality, and fairly easy to work with. Removable motherboard tray. Almost 100% Aluminum construction, which helps to improve heat dispersion. Comes with fans. A fairly quiet case.
  • Cons: Will not fit a tower cpu cooler without modding. Ventilation is sub-optimal. Does not have points to install SSD's (but it's very easy to install a bracket or just make it work by leaving the SSD loose in the 5.25" drive bay, or using zip ties or something (not really a big deal). You can pay a l...

Nicely Done

Jason M., Newegg
14 November 2012
  • Summary: To save space and maximize airflow, order a modular power supply, so you can leave out the power cords not being used.
  • Pros: Ordered a lot of them. All had functioning fans. No warped casings. Solidly built with properly threaded screw holes for smaller screws that hold the side panels on. Able to fit a full size power supply.
  • Cons: Putting electricity to a optical drive requires removal of the opposite side's 5 1/4 bay bezel. These bezels will take some finesse to snap back properly into place, but once they do, they are secure.

Impressed

Thomas M., Newegg
25 October 2012
  • Pros: First time reviewer, long time NewEgger. I wanted to comment on the fans as I've only seen a few reviews on this case relating to them. They are seriously quiet. I was somewhat worried about the noise the case would bring, but the fans are hardly audible. The case itself should be exactly what yo...
  • Cons: Too happy to be negative.

Nice case

Paul C., Newegg
19 October 2012
  • Summary: Be sure to get a small motherboard, and don't get carried away with a huge heatsink/fan. This is meant to be COMPACT.
  • Pros: I wanted a case that did not take half my desk. That's what I got!
  • Cons: Optical drive opening to the side can inhibit installation in a corner. But I cannot recall when was the last time I used my drive. The irony.

Wonderful case

Vladimir K., Newegg
9 September 2012
  • Summary: Fully modular PSU is highly recommended - there is no other place to hide all unused power cables but in front of one of 120mm front fans. Turns out SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze is not fully modular - some PCIE cables which I don't need are still non-removable.
  • Pros: Looks very beautiful, spacious, good airflow, relatively easy to work with - screws in all hard to reach places are thumb screws. Quiet - I planned to replace them with Nexus or Noctua's of proven quality, and use Speedfan to keep speeds down, but it is nearly inaudible in my bedroom with the sto...
  • Cons: Only very minor cons: all three case fans have 3-pin connectors (with molex adapters), so modern motherboards with 4-pin headers cannot use PWM to control their speeds. There is no easy way to install 2.5" SSD drive without adapter. The front port connector cables come from the front left corner ...

Great elegant quiet case

Ron T., Newegg
19 April 2012
  • Summary: I used a spare PS and it had crazy long cables for everything... so it took some work to stuff the spare wiring into the external bay area.... You need to use a new screwdriver tip while you work with this case, the black external screws are easy to mar ...
  • Pros: Quiet! This has "enough" room if you're careful... Love the ability to have optical drive / card reader on either side of the case.... This is my second LianLi case... my other one is a huge tower that is also quiet...
  • Cons: TAKE YOUR TIME (not so much a con)... but you need to plan your wire routes with this thing :)
