5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Case!!!

Pros: SPACE: There is so much room for everything... I have two Radeon HD 6950s on my Rampage III with a V8 cooler master with crazy amounts of room to spare... No hindrance on air for what-so-ever

COOLING: The different cooling sections really do keep everything nice and cool (but if you are using a processor fan that goes perpendicular to your MB make sure it has an air flow parallel to the chassis air flow)

Looks sleek and doesn't have any crazy lighting or logos. Very simple, very sexy.

Cons: The holes in the frame that are for pulling through cords are placed in a way that you might have trouble managing all your cables and wires. But there is space behind the MB plate that you can string everything through to keep the cords from becoming a tangled mess.

If you have a large processor cooler you may need to move the center support beam closer to the front of the tower. This is not really a problem since the case has a a place where you can move it to.

These are not really true cons so I did not feel the need to smash an egg on this tower.

If you want a tower you can mod and go crazy inside, buy this.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful, unique, full-featured, and expensive

Pros: Top-notch build quality
One-of-a-kind thermal zones keep drives and PSU out of the motherboard cooling process
Tons of noise-canceling drive mounts: 6x3.5", 2x2.5", and 3x5.25"
5 140mm fans, front/bottom filtered intakes, and included 5-fan controller provide clean/quiet cooling for full-size systems out-of-the-box
Motherboard and PSU easy to take in/out even if things are installed, rather than having to dismantle entire machine
Almost completely tool-less
Includes 4- and 8-pin CPU power extensions and two long black SATA cables that can make it up to the top drives

Cons: Really expensive
Cable-management is almost non-existent
Drive locations above and below the main motherboard chamber guarantee some long cables will be required
Optical drive covers didnt work for my new drive

Other Thoughts: This is my first Lian Li and, wow, their build quality is higher than anything I've ever owned. It's really tall, but not deep which makes it easy to give it some room for exhaust.
Despite how much I love it, it really did seem too expensive and if the cooling design hadn't been truly unique, I might've gone for something half the price.
My rationale was that I would have a full-sized case that will be worth what I paid for it indefinitely and can be re-used until the ATX form factor changes significantly.
The expansion card support bar system gives the case more rigidity, but wasn't really useful to me for my two-slot GPU, although it might be for someone else
Cable-management for this system is basically routing them all behind the motherboard tray and putting the back panel on
I loved how easy the side-panels are to get off and on
Optical drive covers didn't work for my new drive, in all fairness, I've never had these work and don't really understand the need for these

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding gaming case

Pros: Top quality.
Superb cooling with 3 140mm front fans.
Fans are quiet, even on high.
3 speed fan controller.
Came with psu extension for bottom mounted psu.
2 x 2.5" SSD mounts.
Can handle any size graphics card.

Cons: Motherboard side panel clearance is minimal. Use duct tape to keep psu leads from causing a bulge.

Stealth dvd door button does not match my dvd burner. Supplied pads don't help much.

Price is too high.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I needed a short case to fit my desk space.
Advertised length is 16.9", in actuality, the case is only 15" deep. A plus for me.
Removeable motherboard tray is sort of a plus, but not generally useful.

5 out of 5 eggsa monolith

Pros: This is my first lian-li case and... wow. Spaceous, plenty of room for cable management, the three separate areas (optical drive area, motherboard, and power supply) and fans all over! Airflow is excellent, and i really love the snap-on pci card holders. Tool-less indeed.

Cons: Price, obviously, but you pay for quality. And this is huge, so if you lack space... don't get this. Quite tall.

Other Thoughts: To quote someone else, this case "resembles the monolith from 2001, crafted from magical obsidian by the proud dwarves of middle earth".

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Throughout

Pros: From the elegant understated styling, the thick reinforced side panels, the integrated fan controller, the super long leads for the upper panel connectors, the GPU support, to the grommets that line the openings between compartments. Everything about this case exudes quality.

This is my second Lian Li case and I'm not disappointed. The design is very versatile. I opted for HDDs in the upper bay and removed the lower HDD cage to make more room for cables. The SSD mounts in the MB compartment are a nice touch for those of us with SSDs. The case structure is quite rigid for its size and light weight. Lots of options for routing wires. There's enough clearance behind the MB tray for the 8 pin power cable though you'll likely need a 12" extension. I used 24" Molex extensions to bring power to the upper bay then Molex to SATA converters. The case is virtually silent on the low fan setting yet cools adequately unless I'm overclocked.

Cons: Obviously the price puts this case out of range of the casual builder. However, If you're building a $2,500+ system and want the best, it's not hard to justify.

Other Thoughts: Don't know why Newegg calls this a Mid Tower case. It's nearly as tall as my desk.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Lian Li win.

Pros: Good quality case. I love the the hard drive cages and mounting for expansion slots.

Cons: Cable management. Never had to daisy chain so much. Due to the design putting is together took longer than usual. Had to dig out long Sata cables from misc computer stuff box in the garage.

Other Thoughts: I agree that Lian Li did go cheap in the optical drive covers with them being plastic.. No real biggie. But, a bit of a let down for the brand name and price.

Get some extra adapter/extension cabled to daisy chain.

I have an Sapphire Vapor X 4870 and a Cooler Master V8 CPU fan. Both fit with no problem.

5 out of 5 eggsLian Li keeps getting better!

Pros: This is my third Lian Li case and they never fail to impress. I figured there wouldn't be much to improve, but they always find ways. Lian Li has made the move to 140mm fans, at least with this series, as well as adding thermal zones. The side panels are redesigned for much easier access. Most noticeable however is that the aluminum panels are THICK, and a bit heavier than the usual panels.

Cons: Lian Li cheaped out a little on the drive covers, they're plastic instead of metal.

3 out of 5 eggsWay Over Priced

Pros: It's got some quality attributes about it

Cons: First off this thing is a LOT BIGGER then what the photo make it out to be. I mean its huge. and in my house the dust 99% of the time fall downward so why did they put the power button on top where dust settles? Which will cause the button to stick as time goes on. There is no sound deadening pads. I just can't get excited about this case like I did about a Micro ATX case made by PC Design Labs. Yes it is less deeper then the avarage PC case but its wider across the front also.I'm keeping the case because its usable but was not my first pick. The Silverstone FT02B Fortress Series Alumin or the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D would have been a better choice for me now that I look back. And I can see where Lian Li cut corners like on the bay doors that are not all aluminum unlike there earlier cases now its just a aluminum face with plastic backing I know its no biggie to some people but when you spend this kinda money you want top of the line parts at least I do

Other Thoughts: Now am I saying its a bad case? No its just cost too much for what you are getting for the money.As the two other cases I mention in this review would have been a better choice for me and I like to water cool my CPU's and GPU's. Now I'm not bashing this case? No. because I'm keeping mine but if I had to buy it again I wouldn't. The pic's of the case make it look slimmer then it really is. Lian Li do make some products.
