4 out of 5 eggsBig Black Box

Pros: Lots and lots of space inside. Great minimalistic looks. Convenient top panel. Nifty storage package for spare screws and things. Durable metal construction. (Owned 5 years and moved several times with no damage.)

Can easily fit the largest video cards, a huge Noctua cooling fan, etc. without a problem.

Good ventilation without sacrificing the "monolith" look.

Cons: This tower is HUGE. It could eat my previous full-size tower for breakfast. It's inconveniently big, really, and it has sharp edges (try not to bump into it, it hurts). The thumb-screws and mounting rails were not bad, but not nearly as convenient as the latches on the Antec case I had for my previous tower.

The front grate (inside the door) picks up a lot of dust. On the plus side, that dust isn't inside your computer. On the minus side, it looks gross when you open the front panel and it's matted with a layer of dust.

5 out of 5 eggsHumongoid Bomb Diggity

Pros: High build quality.
The frame is solid, rigid and long lasting. Drive bays are plentiful as well as room for almost any kind of computer you would want.

Cons: Size of case to average ATX motherboard is quite wasteful.
Requires very long storage drive cables (SATA/SAS).
Feet not manufactured to same quality as case.

Other Thoughts: The case can be a lot. You really have to see a case this size to fully appreciate just how humongous it is. On it's size alone visitors always ask WTH?

1 out of 5 eggsNo Key and Accessories not in box

Pros: Huge case, decent features, but pretty solid, comes with many fans!

Cons: The accessory box broke open, and there is no key to unlock the front bezel, not too happy about that.

Other Thoughts: Hope I get a key soon, since I can't get into the front of the case.
I couldn't be a verified buyer since I just received this product.

5 out of 5 eggsIts like you never run out of room...

Pros: Its got HUGE space for anything you need. Everything would fit no problem.
Its a gorgeous case, nice simplistic design. No LEDs.
Two 120mm fans on the front keep everything cool and the air circulation is incredible.
Bottom mounted PSU is a must of course.
Tons of room for cable management between the back panel and the motherboard tray.
The little plastic cable management thing that comes with this case is so useful. I love it.

Cons: I don't like the USB ports on the top of the case. Just not my favorite place to plug USBs in. Because its on my desk.

Other Thoughts: If you are upgrading to a full tower I would highly recommend this case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quality, poor design

Pros: Lian Li quality. Huge fan of An7ec, but Lian Li outdoes everyone in build strength, components, and finish. For the size it is quite light in weight.

Cons: Bizarre layout. With all the space inside, there isn't enough for a motherboard with 4 high end graphics cards. The fourth GPU (doubleslot) will be blocked by the PSU on the bottom. Now you can mount the PSU at the top rear of the case with some finesse but it's not really ideal.

Other Thoughts: There are a ton of hard drive bays in the front and 3 in the rear. The ones in the rear are great if you don't need to mount the PSU there. I do not see why anyone would use 10 3.5 along with multiple 5 1/4 bays. Having a little more space for the motherboard and sacrificing a 5 1/4 bay would have been a no-brainer. I ended up returning the case and going with an An7ec Skeleton.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case Will last a lifetime.I'm 72 only have 30 years or so left

Pros: I knew when i got the case I was going to mod it. I ground off the heads of 4 aluminum rivets, removed three screws and had a removable mobo. Used a 4mmx70 tap and drill to thread the rivet holes in the mobo. Got new screws from HD. Replaced the feet with casters and pop riveted them on.
I now have a Great Case. Filled it with a P8Z68, and the other correct stuff. The only lighted item is a Zalman 9900B. Quiet, easy to ground too and it moves around at a tug. I'll install a pair of top fan as Lian li has a replaceable top with two fan grates. I've installed a pair of filters under the front door with velcro. I'll remove the oem fans as soon as it need a dust cleaning.

Cons: Like someone said eariler it does show finger marks from handeling. the front filter is (on a scale of 1 to 10)1.66, at least ther is one.

Other Thoughts: Looks like Lian li has discontinued this case as it is not on their web site.

5 out of 5 eggsi take back what i said before

Pros: solid construction.. silent fans.. (i cannot hear them running unless my ear is about a foot away)
pleanty of space inside..
everything stays cooler in this than any of my previous gaming towers.
the lights are really cool in this tower.. the power and hdd activity lights will both shine blue. whenever the hardrive is active the hdd light will shine pink/red, so the 2nd light is always on.. and also these led's are not bright enough to shine on the walls when the lights are off. so its not a distraction to leave your computer on at night. yet they are bright enough to be seen in a well lit room.

Cons: if you are forced to swap powersupply locations up to the top like i did.. (my psu cords were not long enough to reach from the bottom)
you cannot reattach the 2nd rear fan & 3 hardrive bays at the bottom of the tower. because it wont fit..
in the pictures you will find a support that has black plastic at the bottom for the powersupply to rest on.. this piece is rivvited to the case and cannot be removed unless you drill it out. so the parts from the top wont fit there. i plan to get a newer high performing psu soon enough so this is only a temporary problem for me. but you will probably want to be sure your psu wires can reach. (make sure the 4+ pin motherboard connector has about 15inches of length to get to the upper area on the motherboard if useing a psu mounted at the bottom)

it is super easy to scratch off the black paint.
this paint is fragile. i put about 5 nice bad scratches on the case trying to be carefull while installing my parts.

Other Thoughts: do a better job than i did and put a nice big fluffy blanket down on a big table before working on your tower.


i had posted a review bashing lian li tech support.
i take that back..
i was unable to ever get in contact with customer support. but i think they read my review here and sent me the missing piece for free...

thanks Lian Li!
you are the best once again :D

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: It's going to be much easier to list the cons, so here is what you need to know.

It's a true full tower with dual PSU bays, a high overall quality level, a low noise level (not quite home theater quiet though), and it really doesn't weight much but is awkward to carry.

Cons: There isn't enough room to run cables behind the mobo tray, I tried and it was "complicated" getting the side panel to fit, and it made a buzzing noise after. You'll be alright if you accept that you aren't going to be hiding wires, just make them organized. It also lacks an easily removable mobo tray, and casters (can be ordered separately).

Large flat side panels feel a bit filmsy, a spot of sound damper fixes that issue though.

Other Thoughts: Compared to my last full tower (the original Coolermaster Stacker 810) I prefer this case. The stacker had a comparable build quality and much better cable management options and a million bays, but this case looks better, has a nice door, classy looks, cool clampy tool-less things to play with and it has better cooling with less noise and no cheesy "bling".

The front door lock doesn't make much sense on a case assembled with 90% thumb screws, it's not a secure case, so don't buy it if that is what you need (or buy a bunch of security screws and an intruder switch).

2 out of 5 eggsCustomer Support doesent exist.

Pros: very nice case, larger than you might think, really designed well and looks to be a quality product.
ordered it on a wednesday, got it on friday!!

Cons: is missing one of the rubber grommets for the liquid cooling tubes on the back.. newegg cant send me that part, i have to go through lian li, or send it back to newegg for a replacement..
and sending a item this size through the mail isnt cheap!!
sent a ticket to lian li (usa) for a rma to ask questions on the friday i recieved the case, got a automated responce back saying their mail box is full message not sent., tried again on sunday and today (tuesday) and got the same issue, i also tried sending messages to other countrys (japan) and still got the same message.. lian li doesent have a number for usa customer support either,, i could try calling taiwan but i doubt that a expensive phone call will prove to be helpfull.

Other Thoughts: apparently lian li is not providing customer service anymore..
called newegg support, seems as if i only have 5 days to return the case for a replacement.. it will cost me around $50 to send the case back.. not worth it...

lian li seems to make quality cases, but not having customer support when they dont ship everything together in a case is unacceptable.. i will not reccomend lian li to others or buy another lian li product unless i get a nice helpful manufacturer responce and this issue resolved.
im only taking three eggs off because its not newegg's fault. although i feel as though lian li deserves none right now.
