It Looks Awesome and is easy to work with!

Jeffery C., Newegg
9 October 2012
  • Summary: Other than the EATX issue I am very satisfied with the case and will NOT even knock off an Egg for the rubber grommet blockage. I bought this KNOWING that and to knock and egg off for buying something you know is an issue ahead is wrong.
  • Pros: This case just oozes quality with no round edges and a solid feel! IT has clear instructions with a lot of options and even a tool and part case to carry your extras! You can see all the insides from the pictures and it is a true tooless case. I LIKE large and this delivers! What it comes down to...
  • Cons: My negatives are minor but people do need to know some things. 1. IF you have an EATX MB the rubber openings for wires are too close and you can not really use them. 2. the Hard drive bays with the built in Sata connections are ONLY Sata II and NOT Sata III, though I REALLY doubt in the real worl...

Amazing case!

Tansel T., Newegg
12 September 2012
  • Summary: 1) I put a 120 mm intake fan instead of the upper 3x HDD bay. This improved air flow. 2) SR-2 fits very well. 3) 2.5 drive is not hot swap, is located in the bottom. is not bad, but I put the SSD in one of the 3.25 bays as hot swap.
  • Pros: Very nice case. Much roomier than HAF 932 eATX and HPTX. HDD- hot swap Quite fans (spects are very hard to find on Lian Li website)
  • Cons: 1) HPTX: 2 holes were missing for SR-2 motherboard. I had to drill to the back plate for better support 2) Front fans are on the side and were placed as an exhaust fan, needs to be reversed.

Quite possibly the best case I've ever bought.

Arliss C., Newegg
11 August 2012
  • Summary: This is the system I have inside the case: Asus KGPE-D16 motherboard PC Power & Cooling Silencer 760W power supply 2x Opteron 6128 2x Noctua NH-U12DO A few cards, SATA HDDs, and a generic DVD-RW drive. There's not enough room on Newegg to let me gush about this case.
  • Pros: An enormous amount of room inside the case. I cannot exaggerate the amount of room available. It's listed for HPTX usage, and it delivers beautifully. My SSI-EEB motherboard (See 'Other thoughts' below), its twin 120mm fan heatsinks, and what cards I choose to run in it still leave it more than h...
  • Cons: This case has a downside? I haven't met it yet.

Unmatched Quality

Anonymous, Newegg
17 May 2012
  • Summary: If one needs dual or triple radiators or more than three 5.25 external drive bays look elsewhere but for most of us at $191.00 this is a hell of a deal.
  • Pros: With the current discounts offered paid $191.00 instead of $339.00 with free shipping. For the price no other case comes close. Third Lian Li purchase and very impressed with fit and finish. Blows away Corsair, Silverstone, and Thermaltake--just to name a few. Externally the case is beautiful. Sm...
  • Cons: PRICE?! Ouch! Even for most enthusiasts $339.00 is just too much for an excellent case. Additionally, there are only three 5.25 external drive bays for expansion. Not a big deal for me but for others it may be a problem. Another big deal is that if one wants to use an internal dual or triple radi...

Top quality case as expected from Lian Li

Andrew W., Newegg
27 March 2012
  • Summary: For a better, more accurate description of what comes with this case you should go to Lian Li's website. You can order additional parts and accessories from there as well if you want The whole "tool-less" design thing is handy for the PCI slots, but I'm a bit weary on the 5.25" bay latch.
  • Pros: There is a stunning, minimalistic beauty to Lian Li cases that I keep coming back to. This thing is built like a tank -- really high quality all around. Coming from a mid-tower Lian Li case to this is a pleasure but I wasn't prepared for how big an upgrade this was. Cable management features are ...
  • Cons: As noted by others, the USB3 ports on the top won't connect to your motherboard with the cable provided. With all the other extras included with this rather expensive case this seems like an oversight that would have been fixed by now.

Lian Li PC-Z70B

Mike B., Newegg
2 January 2012
  • Summary: Case includes a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 converter for front panel header. Build includes: P8Z68 Deluxe/GEN3, i7-2600K, Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 570, Corsair CMPSU-850HX, 16GB CORSAIR Vengeance Low Profile memory, Crucial M4 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD, 2 2TB HDDs and 1...
  • Pros: Outstanding build quality, HDD cage is convenient and a snap to use (handles both SATA 3Gb/s & 6Gb/s drives). Power switch and reset switch have built-in LEDs serving as Power and HDD indicators - they glow blue and red.
  • Cons: Power cable extensions may be needed depending on PSU (I needed an extension for my 8-pin MB power cable in order to route cable behind the motherboard tray). The video card brace had to be removed to clear my HSF. However, the brace is easy to remove and has screws on both ends. Will have to rem...

Awesome

Color M., Newegg
9 December 2011
  • Summary: I've completely customized the case for my needs so I can overlook some of the cons of the case. But if someone is using it out of the box as is, the cons listed could cause some incompatibility with certain components.
  • Pros: Can fit any motherboard from mATX to HPTX. 11 PCI Slots for Quad SLI/CF video cards. Nine Hot-Swap bays Ability to hold two radiators without modding. Removable fan filters that "twist" off from the fans, leaving the screws in place. Semi-modular design, all black panels are attached with screws ...
  • Cons: No case is perfect, especially when talking about Lian Li, but a few issues could have been easily addressed. Corsair H series coolers are very popular but the 120mm models can't be installed with the top video card brace installed. One end is attached with screws but the other end is riveted int...

Great Case

Benjamin K., Newegg
7 October 2011
  • Summary: This is my first Lian Li case and I love it so far. It's just really classy looking and has a very high quality feel to it as it should. It was everything I was hoping for and more.
  • Pros: -Lots of space inside -Nice tool-less features -Very nice cable routing features -Very light weight -Nice hot-swap hard drive connections make it very easy to install the hard drives -Comes with a case to put all of the case hardware in -Great quality feel to it and just all of the nice touches y...
  • Cons: -No fan controller to adjust the speed -In order to accommodate large motherboards that support 3-way SLI for example (which I do not have), the mother board is placed fairly high above the power supply. As a result I couldn't route the 8-pin cable for the motherboard behind the motherboard tray ...
