Good case after some cutting
Pros: -All aluminum means it is very light weight and easy to cut for mods
Cons: -DOES NOT leave enough room for powerful graphics cards. I have a 9800 GTX+ with 1 6-pin power connector on the side of the card. The design of this case allows about 1-2mm of clearance above the card which is not enough to fit a power cable into. I tried multiple cables and with all my might to make it squeeze but it wasn't going to happen. What I ended up doing was cutting out some of the plane separating the drive bays AND the drive bay itself. This gave me plenty of room to fit 2 6-pin cables and more!
Other Thoughts: All in all a good case, it just requires a little cutting and filing to get it right. If you are using a graphics card that does not require any additional power this case would be a lot easier to work with!

Ugh! You better really want this thing.
Cons: Well, this thing is absurdly hard to work with if you have a full size video card. Essentially because of various cable and height issues, I can't use the motherboard tray or add or remove anything therein without totally disassembling the system. Frustrating. I knew it would be a tight fit, but it really is harder than it has to be for the size it is.
Other Thoughts: I don't get the whole "Lian Li is high quality" business...it's an all right case, but it's not flawless...I wish there were a beige colour; I'd be all over that.
