4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Case

Pros: Well made, heavy gauge aluminum, mostly tool-less, clean design, side-installed hard drive bays, good sound insulation, easy top and bottom motherboard access, 120mm hard drive cooling fan.

Cons: Cable routing options could be a little better, hard drive fan filter is difficult to clean, hard drive cage retainer is awkward and difficult to install.

Other Thoughts: This is the best case I've ever owned (I have two of them), and I've owned over 20. I love how there is a design convergence toward mounting hard drives sideways in the case - it makes taking them in and out much easier, something that I do much more than I would have thought a long time ago.

I like the fact that it has a nice big 120mm fan cooling the hard drives, since I've lost a few hard drive to (presumably) overheating, but the biggest issue I have with the case is the air filter in front of the hard drive cage - it takes 10 screws and the removal of the door and front bezel to get to it. Also, I don't know why this 120mm fan has a filter in front of it, but the other 120mm fan right on top of it doesn't (maybe because they figure that the lower one is more likely to pick up dust?). They both have a very coarse and identical aluminum gratings in front of them, and they do both catch a decent amount of dust, so one could argue that you could just remove the fine filter and vacuum the case a little more often.

The hard drives more or less stay in their tray positions, so long as you're not shaking the case vigorously. If this is the case, they include a retainer that secures the hard drive trays via two thumbscrews, but in both the cases that I have, the hole spacing in the retainer vs. the drive cage is a little off, making it very difficult to screw in and very easy to cross-thread.

It seems like the motherboards that I have installed in it have either 4 or 8 pin motherboard connectors in the upper back area, and it's always awkward to get that cable there - maybe they need another hole in the upper area of the motherboard tray (there's one in the lower area that's handy for SATA cables and case connectors).

I just installed Corsair H60 CPU coolers in both cases, and they just barely fit in the case. I also have a GTX 670 in one and a GTX 275 in the other, which barely miss the bottom of the H60 radiator.

5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased with quiet tool-less mid tower case with door

Pros: Looks very nice.
I hear the fans but the sound is so uniform and quiet it doesn't bother me. (Case sits on the desk next to me).
USB ports on top are separated by about 3/4 inches. A bulky Kingston thumb drive and another larger USB device can sit easily side by side in the USB slots. A USB3 to USB2 adapter for the top USB3 port is provided in case your motherboard only supports USB2.
I put a Plextor PX-880SA DVD drive in the uppermost 5-1/4" external drive bay. The USB enclosure jutting down from
the top of the case did not interfere.
Zalman CNPS9900ALED CPU Cooler fit easily.
I did not need to use right-angled cables on the HDDs.
Enough room inside that you don't need to be neat with cables and psu cords. Seems roomier than my old case which had about the same dimensions, I guess because psu mounts on floor of case.

Cons: It was a bit scary clamping my Seasonic 550 W psu into place - it seemed too tall, but all ended well.
Not clear to me from instructions how to get HDD
tray out of the HDD rack - I had to first raise it slightly,
then slide it out.
Using the three lower external 5-1/4" bays requires the removal of a front fan. Only the three highest external bays have a "quick release." None of these are really cons, just conments.

Other Thoughts: The fans on my old case made too much noise. Rather than just get quieter fans, I wanted to try a silent PC case, and one with a door like my old Xion case. Searches turned up only 3 or 4 other possibilities. I decided on this pricey but appealing Lian-Li PC-B10, and am very glad I did. The tool-less feature of the Lian-Li case is a bonus. It was a pleasure to assemble but probably not a big time saver (unless you've misplaced your tools and screws).

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a Lian Li

Pros: Too many to list. If you are already considering this case along other brands and are quibbling over whether or not this is worth the extra money.... buy this. It's worth it.

Cons: Doesn't tuck me in at night.

Other Thoughts: I owned my first Lian Li ~10 years ago or so and was extremely impressed. Swore that I would not use another brand of case. However... next computer I built I saw a really good deal on what lots of people were saying was an awesome case. I purchased it (Antek I think) and was sorely disappointed. The case worked... it just wasn't a Lian Li.

Owning anything else is kind of like buying a Chevy... it works (mostly) but if you can afford the Mercedes, don't even hesitate.

5 out of 5 eggswell built

Pros: Excellent build quality - case really does look nice. This was my first build ever - and i found the tool-less features to be very easy to use. Door hatching mechanism sounds and feels very solid. Seemingly good airflow for my build (asus z68 pro, constant OC'ed to 4.7Ghz i5-2500k, sli evga 560ti's superclocked, ocz vertex 3 120 gb ssd, samsung f3 1TB, hyper 212+, corsair tx750, etc). running crysis 2 at extreme settings gpu's hottest temp is around 76C. side removal is very quick and easy by hand with one screw.

Cons: cable management is a disaster - i'm new to the PC building game, though have designed/built several complex guitar effects pedals and worked as EE intern in college prototyping lots of electronics "black boxes" - so i have a few years of experience in neat and tidy management techniques - though it is hard to make the inside of this thing super clean without a few mods/some drilling. case is also not that quiet - though i don't have a super quiet rig inside. tool-less optical drive mount is a bit shaky - suggest using screws here...

Other Thoughts: overall i'm very happy with this case - it is moderately expensive, but when you really examine it closely the price is very justifiable i feel based on the fit/finish of this product.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case

Pros: This case looks INCREDIBLE. It reminds me of the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Incredibly classy. The included fans are not noiseless, but have the potential to be with the use of a fan controller.
Construction overall is sturdy and robust. The design is well thought out, although i would've liked to have seen more space for cable routing behind the motherboard tray. The pci clamps are remarkably sturdy. I have a pair of 580s with full board waterblocks on them. They are very heavy. The clamps in this case are stronger than screw mounts and secure my cards well.
The PSU clamp gets a thumbs up as well.

Cons: Removing the front fans is tedious, as other parties have stated. Also, I think the bare aluminum of the interior is tacky so I painted it. Removing all the anodized parts from this case is a total pain. The top and some parts on the front are riveted to the chassis and have to be drilled before they can be removed, which is a design flaw on Lian Li's part considering that they sell oem tops for it

Other Thoughts: I can't comment much on the hdd bays, because I have removed them. From what I can tell though, they looked/felt high quality and robust

5 out of 5 eggsBest case I have owned yet

Pros: - Beautiful fit and finish
- Tool-less PCI holders
- Quiet
- Simple clean look

Cons: - Front fans are a bit tricky to swap out
- Mobo tray is fixed and not removable
- Only 4 HDD spots

Other Thoughts: My first PC case was a Lian Li (2002), second was a Silverstone (2006) and I am back to Lian Li with a vengeance! I was drawn to this case for the clean geometry and simply look. It looks great in my office, but Lian Li hasn't lost any steps in quality and added some very nice modern tools as well (PCI clamps and HDD mount). I will continue to buy Lian Li again and again, the fit and finish is awesome and you get what you pay for.

Many thanks to Newegg for price matching this, it dropped $30 after I bought it and they credited me back. Amazing customer service.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: - Great build quality.
- Quiet - This case comes with quieting materials not included on my other Lian Li case.
- Able to fit my 5870GPU and 850W PS no problems.
- One sexy beast!

Cons: - The third fan CANNOT be utilized if you are using more than two 5.25 drives.
- The intake fan filter is a major pain to remove. (8 screws)
- The motherboard hole for cable management isn't in the best location.

Other Thoughts: This is the classiest looking case I've ever laid my eyes on.

3 out of 5 eggsHot

Pros: Nice overall design

Cons: Case is somewhat cramped, and it will get very hot due (possibly due to the sound dampening material).

5 out of 5 eggsMet my expectations

Pros: Great build quality. It really is quiet.

Cons: Can't really think of any.

Other Thoughts: I bought it for a home server and I suppose the 4 drive bays would be a disadvantage but I needed something quiet and while it has less drive bays than I would like the drive noise isolation system really does work and I suppose that is the trade off. A couple of Lian-Li internal expansion bays should help matters.

Anyway I rarely take the time to write reviews, but this case really has met my needs and it is very well designed. I just couldn't be more pleased.
