5 out of 5 eggsThe best case!!!

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
memory-G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB GDDR3-1600
Storage -Seagate Barracuda 1TB
GPU -GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB
PS -SILVERSTONE Strider Plus 500W
SC-Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD
Case -LIAN LI PC-V351B

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.

Other Thoughts: 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

5 out of 5 eggsDon't expect top end everything.

Pros: Great appearance and presences. People don't understand it"s a pc sitting next to my yamaha receiver.

Cons: Limited cooling and expansion.

Other Thoughts: 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. Plays most of everything as far as games go. Not my 6 core pc but uber htpc. If I want to show off the pc aspect of it I can play most my origin and steam games at 90%. Did i say it's super sexy? Drawbacks: 2 hdd unless you but 2.5" adapters. my gigabyte 7970 doesn't fit inside it and its considered short. thermals are not great. low profile cpu cooler or stock. no big tower cooler. PERIOD>. LOW PROFILE HSF ONLY. i wouldn't put a 125watt cpu and massive video card unless I wanted to buy new fans. Which brings up the final point. The Light thin aluminum chassis does not deaden and sound so if you are considering this remember quiet hsf and hdd. Plus it is a giant fingerprint magnet. All tha being said I'm waiting for another lian li sale to buy a third. pair this awesome chassis with quiet parts or you will be disappointed. oh yeah and disable the pc power light. boron laser bright always on blue. I'll skip that. the red hdd light lets me know the pc is working fine. Very happy with purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for HTPC

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.

Other Thoughts: A great case for the money and very solid with the build quality.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case!

Pros: Excellent build quality, decent cooling. Looks nice, LEDs aren't super bright. Can fit larger video cards! Temps under load are around 35 C.

Cons: It was a bit expensive when I bought it. ATX power supply fitment is a bit tight. Solved with a Silverstone PSU:

Other Thoughts: Specs:
Intel 3770k
Diamond Radeon 6950
OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 240gb

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case that needs a little adjustment...

Pros: • All Metal / Aluminum
• Lightweight
• Small Footprint
• Decent Price
• Good amount of Drive Space considering size
• Plenty of Room for ATX Power Supply (Recommend: Modular)

Cons: • Although the Drive Guides are there and all the needed Screws and Hardware does come with it, they made it a little bit of a pin for mounting any 5 ¼ Drives (Mainly CD / DVD Drives). The one side is completely accessible, although you may want to put the drives in prior to mounting a Power Supply, but the one side of the drive (Towards the Front of the case), they really made a pain to get to. It’s not a deal breaker, but even the veteran PC builder (Which I have been doing for over 20 years) will find this a little annoying.

• Hard Drive Mounts are cleverly set next to the Power Supply and with it’s own cooling fan. Enough room for two (2) 5 ½ or 2.5 SDD Drives. Here’s the Deal, the drives only go in one way and there is a cable route to the bottom of them which makes perfect sense. But with the way the drives mount, the SATA Cable end up going OVER the Drives where the Power Cable end up going UNDER the drive. It just seemed an Oxi-Moron to put the cable guide there, but not be able to utilize it fully.

I am taking one (1) Egg away for this. Again, not a deal breaker, but could have been done a little better.

Other Thoughts: • Overall the case is a good buy and anyone looking to make their PC take up a smaller space or perhaps a HTPC, this is a good choice. It’s not a “Small” case, but it’s also not “Big” either.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for tight spaces

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 case on the shelf every time I wanted to change a disk.

Looks sharp.

Seems well made.

Stays cool for my build.

Cooler Master GeminII S524 fits, but just barely.

Takes a full size video card.

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 took away my one best spot for tucking the cables away.

Other Thoughts: 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)

5 out of 5 eggsAn excellent case

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 lot less and get a steel case that is almost as functional, it just won't look quite as nice, and will be a bit heavier.

Other Thoughts: 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 this is a danger with tower cases.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Design for HTPC

Pros: -Beautiful case inside and out. Looks polished.
-Plenty of space if you build it all at once.
-Fits a full size graphics card, fairly certain 2 would fit in, but I'd be afraid heat might become an issue.

Cons: -Polished nature shows scuffs and dust easily. (Not a problem if you're cleanly)
-Removable MB tray becomes useless due to power and case cables.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to get a modular psu or at least one without too many extra connections. With everything in there, the fit becomes a bit tight.

4 out of 5 eggsOK case

Pros: High quality construction, beautiful looks.

Cons: Not the best design or fun to work on. The slide out MB tray is well made and a great idea but you still have to remove the side panels to work on it and they are fastened by six tiny screws per side. The screws were driven in and practically seized so screwdriver cam out was a problem. If you mangle the heads trying to get them out, good luck finding replacements. The internal cables (front panel, fan) are not long enough to attach to the MB while it is out of the case so you have to stick your hand in from the sides and work in very little space. Only one side of the 3.5" drive bays was accessible for mounting screws and the power supply needs to be out to get them in (or use a drive bit and your finger tips if you are really skilled). Not much space between the rear of my HX750 and the 3.5" bays so the modular cables were a pain to connect and then needed to be bent 90 degrees since the bays are in the way. USB 3.0 front/side panel connections should be more common by now but this case like so many others is limited to USB 2.0.

Other Thoughts: This case is great looking and the sale price made it a great deal but for someone that likes to make frequent changes to their PC, I would not recommend it. As an example: if you wanted to swap your DVD burner for a Blu-ray burner, you would have to remove the side panel (six tiny screws), remove the PSU to get to the screws that hold the DVD/Blu-ray drives in place, remove any drive on the opposite side of the case (to get to the SATA power/data connections), then do everything in reverse. Not the end of the world but in a cramped space, this process takes longer than you might think.

I'm guessing most people won't need or try to use a 750W PSU in a case like this but I wanted a PSU that I could use for other purposes down the road. It isn't that much longer (180mm specified length) than the 550W models I have used for other builds but even a half inch extra length can make a big difference during the build process. Try and find models that are ~170mm in length or less to give yourself a little more room to work.

2 out of 5 eggsLooks and little else

Pros: Looks nice, power/reset buttons have a nice tactile feel, even if I only touch the power button about once a week.

Dual 120mm intakes on such a small case is nice but should be a standard by now

Tests have shown that even under stress, my GPU temps are not that bad (75c max, 90% load for ~15m)

I have custom-fit a CM H60 liquid cooler to one of the front 120's for CPU cooling so that is rock solid.

Cons: Although I know this is an mATX case, I was really surprised by the construction and how cramped it really is, because it is not *that* small of a case. Perhaps some of this could have been discovered pre-purchase with a little more reading but.. that's on me.

* There are no "removable" elements. In most cases, drive bays or other components are typically removable; not so much in this case. They are integrated into construction and riveted tight in to place. I had to do some customer work to be able to even plug in my graphics card. This was a major downside for me.. I wanted to scale back the size of my case but I expected to be able to work around a little better than what was given here.

* The hard drive fan butts-up against the HDD cabling.. Luckily, I had an 'elbow' SATA cable that allowed me to actually put that plate back on. I could have just removed the fan but the HDD's need some cooling, too.

* There are no exhaust fans. I knew this going on but.. really should try for some exhaust somewhere.. However airflow seems to be OK at this point. My temps are fine but I am not running any extreme hardware.

* Proprietary screw/hardware sizes? Really? And you sent a whole *9* standoffs when my board normally uses 8. You have a TON of confidence in the average person's ability to not lose hardware. Furthermore there was hardly any spare screws or parts in general. For $110 I expected a whole lot more than this, even the $30 cases send a 5-gallon bucket worth of screws and bolts. This was almost unacceptable to me.

* Tool-less mount systems are touted to be pretty nice in here with rubber-grommets for anti-vibration but.. really it just kind of turns out to be a pain in the rear. The front 120mm fan system is OK but you're going to have to use quit a bit of elbow grease sometimes, they like to get stuck. The drive-bay covers... jeeze.. do *not* remove them if you intend to put them back, they don't go back. At least not correctly.

* Warped by the time I was done with my build? I was transferring from one case to this one, and all the outer plates lined up nice at first but.. once I had all my hardware in, the screw holes and plates did not want to line up very well; really makes me question the quality for the price tag.

Other Thoughts: Overall.. perhaps it's a nice case if you have a small form-factor graphics card, no other cards and really, really small hands. Don't expect much in the way of managing cables and don't expect everything to fit very well.. Perhaps I just didn't research enough or had unreal expectations of mATX desktop format.
