5 out of 5 eggsDimensions

Pros: Not a review, but a Question

Cons: What are the dimensions of this case. They are not included in specifications. I want to know if I can use it for SLI and liquid cooling

Other Thoughts: I'll remove it when someone answers.

5 out of 5 eggsSerious Case

Pros: Best Case ever owned, excellent build quality, no sharp edges. The Mobo tray is removable. exterior design is minimalist and looks great in person.

Cons: Not a con, but there is a steel frame that runs thru the middle of the case that is supposed to hold the mobo fan and the gpu support.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperlative

Pros: Minimalist aesthetics, superior build quality, easily removable side panels/motherboard tray, liquid cooling ports, chipset cooling fan, attention to every detail...there are just too many pros to list. Everything about this case is outstanding.

Cons: If I had to list something as a con, I would agree with Mick's 2/2/2009 review where he states that airflow in the upper section of the case is problematic if you utilize all the 5.25 drive bays. If you have to use all five bays, you might consider replacing the rear fan with a higher cfm model (or utilize the ports at the rear of the case for a liquid cooling system!).

Other Thoughts: Gotta agree with Mick again - this case brought a smile to my face when I unboxed it. My smile grew wider and wider as I placed the components in the chassis. This is the best case I've ever come across.

This case is really closer in size to a full tower. Check the dimensions before you buy.

One last thought: when my nephew (who fancies himself a computer expert) saw this chassis, he berated me for spending so much on "a boring black case". I just smiled and thought to myself that someday he might go for a computer that doesn't look like a cheap jukebox or something out of a comic book.

5 out of 5 eggsbuilt like a jewel

Pros: This is the first LianLi case I have owned that effectively copies the best innovations of the Antec line: zonal design, airflow over the drives, soft drive suspension, and other features for "quiet computing." Early LianLi cases advertised the heat conduction of aluminum, but this was debunked. After a few oddball efforts, this case has everything in the right place. One now has a realistic alternative to the excessive use by Antec of plastic, which has resulted in a number of cases of front panel fracture/detachement in shipping, even without visible box damage. In contrast to the admittedly efficient and adequate construction of an Antec case, you can have a jewel instead. The front door is an extruded aluminum marvel that won't fracture.

Cons: Aluminum is not as strong as those steel cases that are built for heavy duty. Perhaps you could sit on a heavy duty server case, but not this. But in the absence of terrible abuse, this case should last forever. And moving it is easier on the back.
The drive shock mounting system relies partly on gravity for retention. There is the possibility that, if the case was shipped with drives installed, they could pop out (upwards) from the holder.
Whether the case will cool well enough for multiple 300 watt graphics card monsters is an open question. It can probably handle at least one. However, some cases with multiple huge fans on front, side, and back may be better for Tesla supercomputer construction, etc.

Other Thoughts: Holds a Tyan S7025 dual Xeon server board SSI EEB form factor. It was possible to fit a Noctura NH-U12P to the rear CPU, and a NH-U9DX to the front, without interference. It is possible to remove/insert tray without removing the sinks. One tray mount hole did not line up with the Tyan. I drilled a new hold about 1/3" away, and all was well.
The Lianli PE-01 "Power Supply Unit Extender" lets a long supply hang out the back, necessary for huge units such as the Coolmax 1350 I used here.

5 out of 5 eggsLOTS of room

Pros: Space and lots of it! Room for 6 regular hard drives + lots of 5-1/4 drive bays that could hold more if needed.
Very sturdy once you get the sides mounted and fastened down.
No huge, flashing gaudy lights to annoy you in a dark environment - just one single blue LED.
Fans are reasonably quiet.
High quality ball-latch on front door - classy!
Side panels are easy to remove and mount.
I really like the top mounting for the audio/usb/firewire/sata connectors.

Cons: It is REALLY big. I'm not sure why it is classified as a mid-tower. Check the dimensions to be sure it's what you want.
The rear fan was mounted backwards in mine. (Pulling air into the case instead of pushing it out.) If you run into overheating issues, that's something to check!
The instructions are very cryptic. I know translators cost money, but at this cost level, I don't expect to have to decipher hieroglyphics.

Other Thoughts: This is a really classy and upgradeable case which I expect to be re-using through several builds over the next 5-8 years.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful piece of engineering

Pros: Every so often you come across a piece of hardware that makes you smile. It is obvious that the manufacturer put considerable thought into the design and manufacturing of this case. Every aspect of it is extremely well-built: from the two removable side panels, crafted of thick aluminum and lined with sound-dampening foam... to the high-quality, quiet fans and drive bay panels with removable air filters... to the abundance of extra screws and mounting hardware included with the case. Looks very sleek, if you are keen on a minimalist, "monolithic" design. Procedure to swap front door to hinge on the right was fairly simple. Fans are quiet, and keep case quite cool on "medium" speed.

Cons: Air flow: see Other Thoughts below.

If you have a large PSU (Corsair 750w, for example), you'll probably have a few unused rails. There is barely enough room to tuck the spare cables away. A PSU with modular cables would avoid this problem.

Other Thoughts: Initially I filled all five 5.25" bays, with DVD burners and removable drive trays. I suspected that this may have decreased air flow over the motherboard/CPU, as the design of the case is such that there are two "zones" -- the lower zone for hard disks houses the intake fan on the front of the case -- and the upper zone houses the exhaust fan and optional internal circulation fan. But with all five external bays filled, the top zone has no efficient way to intake cool air. Freeing up one 5.25" bay and replacing with the stock perforated filler panel solved this problem, and CPU temps dropped by almost 5C immediately.

Power LED has 3-pin plug, like this: [+][ ][-]. The EVGA x58 motherboard has a 2-pin power LED connector. I swapped around the wires in the LED plug, to fit on the motherboard connector, but it still doesn't light. Hardly a major issue, though.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case!

Pros: Lots of room and well built. Three fans so there is plenty of cooling. My first build and this case made things very easy.

Cons: Not much of a Con, but I wish the instruction manual had more words. Seems like the pictures only method took me a while to figure out, but then again I'm old and my eyes are going.

4 out of 5 eggscool case

Pros: if you are one of those people who like quality then you should buy this case.

Cons: everything was ok until I saw my cpu/motherboard temperature to rise over the acceptable limits and that is after I replaced cpu and vga cards heatsinks with Zalman. After some testing I figured that my cpu fan was blowing hot air into the case and not out of the case, so I rotated my cpu fan 180 degrees and my overheating problem went away for now.

Other Thoughts: Be careful as these cases seem to trap hot air a lot more then steel cases.
