4 out of 5 eggsNice Case - Buy Extra Fans

Pros: Good solid case, easy to install everything.

Cons: If you are using a higher end graphics card, you should turn the side fan to blow in, instead of out, and add 1-2 fans to the top half.

5 out of 5 eggsSurgery needed for Thermal

Pros: Light, good looking case. Lian-li quality with somewhat thinner panels compared to other more expensive Lian-li models. Case design can be easily modified to improve the thermal efficiency.

Cons: The thermal design is not very good as is. You do want to mount a 120mm fans on the back panel. AND, the best way to cool down your case (especially your graphics card) is to turn the side fan around. Instead of drawing air out of the case, the fan does a much better job blowing air onto the motherboard. The back panel 120mm fan will be the one to draw the hot air out. Better yet, put a 80mm on the top panel. Note,you'll need to dismount the side fan from the fan's white aluminum frame, turn it around and remount it to the frame. Why? You'll need the clearance for your video card. Oh, throw away the fan grill unless you always change parts when the computer is on.

Other Thoughts: Obviously not the best Lian-li you can get. However, it's among the cheapest Lian-li cases.

4 out of 5 eggsHandsome and Inexpensive Case

Pros: This is a light-weight, and well designed case with brushed aluminum to provide a professional look. The case also has enough space to fix two 8800 GTX cards (10.5 inches long), albeit it is a very tight fit with only two millimeters of space. Besides being light-weight, all the internal sharp edges are covered.

A person who takes their time can perform some good cable management even though the case no specific compartments designed with case management in mind.

Cons: This case will never has more than adequate cooling. Even with two 110 CFM 120 mm case fans (front and back), my MCP hovers at 55 degrees and my SPP maintains a constant 59 degrees Celsius. Furthermore, the side graphics card fan has special screws that make replacing the fan itself difficult. Lastly, the 90 degree mounted hard drive bay improves available space for graphics cards, but complicates hard drive power cable management.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am happy with the case. As as gamer, I am concerned with temperatures and may not readily recommend this case to those who want a really chilly environment to keep their components cool. For the price and features though, this is one hard case to beat.

My components for reference: Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800, Noctua NH-U12P CPU Cooler, EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1, 2 x MSI 8800 GTS 512 OC, 2x Scythe Slip Stream 120mm case fans

5 out of 5 eggssilver version discontinued

Pros: This is my first Lian Li case. All the plastic and steel cases I have used before are junk by comparison. If this is an economy version of Lian Li products, as some reviewers claim, then you can not go wrong with this brand. The only aluminum case I had before this one had a harness and was designed for lan parties. THAT was a flimsy case. This one is not.

Cons: None. I knew the MB tray was not removable when I bought. This is not a con, but my case, although identical in every other way, is silver. The silver version was discontinued right after I bought it.

Other Thoughts: If cable management is a concern then buy a PSU with modular cables. My Thermaltake toughpower 700W PSU has modular cables and is a PERFECT fit. So perfect, in fact, that the silicone gasket included with the PSU will not fit. No matter because the 14cm fan in the PSU is dead silent and there are no rattles anywhere.

4 out of 5 eggsyou will like Lian-li

Pros: Easy remove front panel, top panel. Clean and simple look. All alumnium. It is light weight. You have many options of lian li accessories.

Cons: Not really cons. Side panels feel a little flimsy compared to other lian li products(~$2xx). Top panel usb/mic/1394 hub is convenient to reach if you place the case under desk. But if your MB has usb/Audio port headers on the bottom-right corner, it is a little hard to manage the cables. No specific design for cable management. The HDD rack is too closed to the MB tray. It is hard to plug/unplug the HDD cables if you have a IP35 pro like MB with vertical SATA ports.

Other Thoughts: I bought an air duct for it, which seems no significant improvement of the CPU temp. You might want to purchase another 120mm fan for the back and 80mm fan for the top to make a good air flow inside the case.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst Build

Pros: This case is roomy. The fans included with the case are quiet and can't be heard at all if there is any other sound source in the room. Installing the components was easy once the top and side panels were removed. Easily accomidated a long video card (nvidia 8800gt).

Cons: I bought this case under the assumption that the motherboard tray would be removable. It's not, but it wasn't that much of a problem. I'm in the process of modding the side blowing fan so that it will serve as an intake and I added a fan as an exaust for the rear vent. Some testing will be required before I can figure out which setup is better. Also, I'm having some issues getting the reset button to work. This may have more to do with the motherboard than anything else, but its still something I need to deal with.

Other Thoughts: This is my first from scratch build so I don't have much with which to compare it. I'm not sure how good the air flow is in comparison to most things or how low the system temperature should be. But the case itself is sturdy and the IO ports work. I'm quite happy with my purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsLike Turns To Love

Pros: Absolutely splendid craftmanship for a mere $99.00. The aluminum body is very lightweight but is very strong. It is not too compact and can accomodate multiple large video cards without interfering with the HDDs. The patented side fan is a boon for those who have air-cooled video cards. Lian-Li sells multiple add-ons to the case, like an optional transparent window (look under PC - G7 series).

Cons: New owners may notice a little rattling, but this can be taken care of by loosening some side panel thumb bolts. Removing and replacing the external drive face plates may prove troublesome for the uninitiated, like me. The black, wire mesh dust screen may reduce the airflow to the HDDs. Also, you have to be clever to route power to the SATA HDDs without interfering with the side panels. I was not as clever as I thought, and my cable management job suffered a wee bit. It may scratch easily, but Windex is miracle worker for these slight scratches and gives your case a very clean look...good to remove finger prints as well.

Other Thoughts: My previous review of this case did not take into account the extensive reading I did over multiple forums. This case is known on the forums for higher case temperatures and hard cable mangagement. However there are multiple tricks that don't require a drill to improve cable management and lower your temperatures. For instance, use the back Northbridge fan head and your PWN fan head to route power to the back and side fans. Also, completely remove the black, wire mesh screen on the back fan. It really looks great, but it has the effect of blowing the exhaust air back into the case. Any number of fan guards also look good, but don't trap the air. I noticed a very appreciable decrease in my case temperature once this mesh was removed.

4 out of 5 eggsPC- G7 Series Case

Pros: As others noted before, this case looks better than expected and is very light weight. Lian Li has some thoughtful details, like plastic covered corners inside to prevent cuts and scrapes, 80 mm fan enabled top "blowhole", and two plastic cable mounts.

My previous case was steel and acoustically dampening. I did notice an increased noice level, but it was not annoying.

Cons: The case scratches very easily despite great care to prevent damage. The case could use better cable management. There is nowhere to hide cables and providing power to the back two fans (back and side) proved to be very troublesome to cleanly route cables. This is by far the worst job I did with cable management in any case I have done so far.

Other Thoughts: The side fan is a good idea, but with water-cooled systems, it may prove unnecessary and, in my case, pressed aganist my tubes. Lian Li does not specifically list this case on their site and I could not find any third party reviews. Look under PC - G7 series for more information. Lian- Li does offer several add-ons including a transparent side panel. Due to poorer cable management than what I am use to I gave this case a four.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than I thought

Pros: Light weight aluminum construction, well finished interior and exterior, well laid out for my needs, understated quality design. This case was what I was looking for. Good air flow for the graphics cards.

Cons: side fan is a little clumsy to work with, May consider LIAN LI PC-7B plus II case if you need to get into the graphics cards very often.

Other Thoughts: This case is everything I was looking for and at a good price. It is light weight but I find that's a plus. Like was previously reviewed, it looks better than the images on the egg. The design worked very well for me. Ordered my new system on Tuesday, arrived Friday:) Would buy it again without hesitaion.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I needed: QUALITY

Pros: I wanted a case that was quality, subtle, and lightweight. This case is exactly that. The hard drive bays have a really nice rack design, the case itself is a really nice brushed aluminum which doesn't show in the picture, some people commented on "flimsy sides" but to me its and advantage. It IS study, but not a 2 ton tank.

Cons: no cons

Other Thoughts: Lot's of room for expansion and extra fan slots. The top panel is well designed, no little walls to get in the way and block of ports and an easily accessible firewire is very useful for me. QUALITY
