5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: Lots of room for all your goodies. I like the (inside) sound proofing on the side panels/top. Quick release sides work well. I like the air deflector on the rear fan. Very well built and worth the cost. Packaging was good. I'd buy it again.

Cons: These are not big issues to me but; No reset button. No removable motherboard panel/tray. The large rubber bands that slip over the wheels seem like an afterthought. English version documentation was poorly written (for North America that is). Actually, sort of funny.

Other Thoughts: Get it, you'll like it.

5 out of 5 eggsOnce you go Lian-Li, you never go back.

Pros: This case is HUGE. I've almost always owned full towers, but this one takes the cake! Drive bays everywhere, sound dampening foam, and a great trolley. This thing runs quiet and cool.

Cons: DO NOT use this for any heat pipe mobo! Other than that, just make shure you have long cables or extensions arround.

Other Thoughts: Everything slides together like a dream. The aluminum is heavy plate and there is zero plastic on this case. I only wish I could afford to replace every case I own with a Lian-Li......

4 out of 5 eggsvery nice execution

Pros: - excellent expansion capability
- mostly thoughtful design with easy hdd mounting and good cable routing
- high quality workmanship
- quiet operation
- good airflow
- too pretty to cut... almost

Cons: - scsi data cables must be twisted once to connect to drives in lower bay, just a minor annoyance
- front "multimedia" panel not easily removed... useless unless you have front usb/firewire/audio capability
- aluminum not good alloy or anodized as separate process, just natural layer of anodized material, which means easily damaged
- no provision for network, scsi hdd, system overheat, fan death, p/s overheat, etc. leds on case, so i must hack the poor thing to add these things
- too pretty to cut... almost

Other Thoughts: all my previous "big" cases have been variants of In-Win's Q500-A - all steel, sturdy, not too pretty, and VERY customizable without guilt. this case, while worthy of an office suite, is not entirely compatible with my needs. just for kicks - i've got a dual dual-core Opteron workstation with only 4gigs dual channel ram (win xp limitation, until i try 64) and only 4 U320 15krpm scsi hdd's so far, with dual GeForce7900GT graphics in SLI mode. pretty decent, and the case handles it all without problems.

5 out of 5 eggsTop of the line computer case! Best I have ever used!

Pros: Well built, all aluminum (even the drive covers) sturdy heavy case with strong casters to roll around the floor. The pictures do not do just! Extremely quiet and great airflow!

Cons: NONE AT ALL!

Other Thoughts: Who ever buys this item will be very impressed!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case, one little problem

Pros: This is a good case. Its more than big enough to give you plenty of room to work in, and has lots of expansion slots. The cooling is also excelent and above all quiet.

Cons: If you plan on using more than 6 3 1/2 inch bays, do not purchase a "long" power supply. I bought the 1KW PC Power and Cooling PS, and had to remove the support barket and one side of one of the 3 1/2 inch bay mounts. This effectivley took away 6 expansion slots. Not a huge problem since I never plan on using the 6 that are there, but Im still testing to see if this has affected the of the HDD and PS in anyway.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: This is an extremely nice case. To start with, it's beautiful. The solid black, brushed aluminum and front door give it a clean, elegant look that's a little rare today. Inside the case, you have a ton of room. I mean, you have 12 internal 3.5" drive bays! And nothing that you put in the case seems to get in the way of anything else. It's all arranged very well.

Cons: Very expensive. But you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Best aluminum full tower case out there right now.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: With Lian Li's high end offerings, you get more than you pay for, and you pay alot!

I moved a old AthlonMP (Tyan S2462 - it's a monster) based fileserver from an Antec SX1040B into a V2100B.

Fitting the giant EATX motherboard in was tricky, but doable, and once in, it has plenty of space.
The power supply bay is a tight fit for the oversize custom Delta, but it's completely in there and has just enough room to breathe.
Muliple oversized PCI cards fit, with additional support from plastic guides - a major improvement over the Antec, where long PCI and AGP cards made me run without all of the drive bays.

Hint for oversize components: empty the front drive bays, and slip in that way.

For SCA disks using 80p LVD cables and 68/80 adapters, the limited space for cables in the bay is very restricting - I can only use every other disk bay for SCA disks. For SATA, it's no problem, so I interleaved SCA/SATA. Note that you need unusually long SATA cables to get from the PCI cage to drive bays.

While hardly "silent" - nothing can muffle this rig - I've been impressed by the overall reduction in noise level. I had put automotive sound deadening material in the old Antec, but the Lian Li's solid build and rubberized deading material does a much better job.

The cavernous interior also allowed installation of larger heat sinks with slower speed fans, which further improved the noise level. With the Antec, one of the processors was too close to the drives for this to be possible.

With all the disk bays, I was able to lose a noisy external enclosure, and the fileserver has finally came in from the garage!

Packed full of disks, processors, and controllers, I've had no heat problems, even without adding 80mm fans for the disk bay. I blocked off the 80mm ports, allowing the 120mm intake coupled with the jet turbine power supply to handle the disks. Warm, but well within limits.

Build quality in the drive cage and exterior components is exceptional.

The Aluminium MB tray seems a little flimsy, but is holding up a giant MB with two 500g heatsinks, three heavy PCI cards, and an old workstation graphics card (roughly 5 pounds of components) just fine.

My only real complaint is the lack of a reset button. This isn't a problem for a system that only goes down for power outages, but would be annoying on a Windows box. I'm looking for remedies before I move my gaming rig into this case's smaller brother.

While the Antec was an excellent case - and on par in build quality - this is clearly a step up in materials, capacity, finish, and price.

5 out of 5 eggsBLAX BOX

Comments: First of all, i feel that getting a case this expensive is worth the investment if you are planning on having a good, sturdy, stylish, good ventilated, spacy,etc etc as your PC's long term investment. Great product that i ever get at a good price (not great price, hehehe). Worth buying and very satisfied. If you have additional funds, get a blower (by lianli, used in plus series, it ll blow the heat out).

4 out of 5 eggsQuite, but incompatible

Comments: Flips MB upside down so you can't use ASUS A8N-SLI Premium or A8N32-SLI Deluxe because heat-pipes are upside down and make the motherboard go out in a month or two.

4 out of 5 eggsWonderful case, but beware deep power supplies

Comments: The PC Power & Cooling 850 SSI 850W Power Supply I ordered was too deep (9.1") for this case. It would fit if you loppedd off the cables. I managed to wedge it in by removing the blocking brace and mounting the PSU upside down (so the cables cleared the drive bays). Check your PSU measurements carefully (and allow for cable clearance).
