This review is from: LIAN LI PC-8FIR Red Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Surprisingly good cooling at a low db levels Extremely light Beautiful finish (although not as bright as expected) Included a drive cover for my black DVD drive to blend it with the rest of the case. Excellent tooless 5.25" drive mounting system. Adequate cable management holes Top fan point doesn't interfere with my Xigmatek HDT S1283
Cons: As with all aluminum cases it is very delicate and easy to scratch (scratched mine by accident :( but it isn't noticable at a distance)
Other Thoughts: I've read reviews that stated there isn't much space to install a top 140mm fan. I had no issue installing my 140mm fan of normal 25mm thickness. It could be that by today's standards, my heatsink is on the smaller side (Xigmatek HDt s1283).
Motherboard is a Gigabyte P55A UD4P.
I moved from a CM 690 to this case and with less fans this case keeps my CPU 2 degrees cooler at idle, 6 degrees cooler during prime 95 @ the same clock speed. Haven't noticed much of a difference with GPU temperatures.
The CM 690 was decked out with scythe medium speed and low speed fans...etc.
At $129.99 with free shipping I wish I had ordered 5 more...
