5 out of 5 eggsvery nice case

Pros: Solid aluminum
Easy build with this case
Plenty of space inside
Thumb screws everywhere
Removable motherboard tray
Power supply tray
USB 3 headers included

Cons: Overuse of LED fans - replaced them with non-led fans
Could have used slightly heavier aluminum
Power/reset and led cables should be braided
Rubber grommets should be on all cutout areas of mobo tray
Wish there was slightly more room on backside of motherboard tray for cable management
Power/HDD LED makes top of case very annoying with lights - easy to mod (just take some rubber tubing about 1 inch long and have it run the length from the LED bulb to the hole on front of case where the light shines from.
Reset button is too small

Other Thoughts: This is a very nice case, I had to mod a few things just to get it working 100% right. I removed the annoying LED fans and replaced them with some coolermaster fans that are quiet. I also moded the LED hdd/power bulbs so they dont shine through the entire top of the case, just ran some rubber tubing from the bulb to the holes in front of case where the lights shine through - this blocks off the light and only lets it shine outside. Overall there isnt much thats needed to get this case up and running with your new build. It does take some time for cable managment and they could have used rubber grommets on all the cutouts - which they didnt on a few spots, they also could have used a braided cable for the power/reset and led wires. This case also now included TWO usb 3.0 motherboard headers that go to the top of the cases 4 usb 3 ports.

This is an extremely well built case, I do wish they had used slightly heavier/thicker aluminum though so the case felt more solid.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - amazing look and feel
- mobo tray slides out
- HD oriented towards side panel
- single screw to remove side panel

Some nice features found in other mobo's
- x4 front USB 3.0
- large, spacious
- bottom mounted power supply
- x4 fans
- wheels for transportation

Cons: - ODD installation was very annoying
- cost: expensive - was worth the investment; no buyer's remorse
- front LED lights can't turn off (or haven't figured it out yet)
- no handles to transportation

I'll note that others have reported the HD's require 4 screws that are very loose; they are loose, but become tight once the anti-vibration pads are used - the instruction manual was not very clear on this.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect Hackintosh Case

Pros: Great looks. If you need a case for your Hackintosh Pro look no further. Great cooling. Excellent build quality.

Cons: Super bright LED power and HDD lights. Front fans have bright blue LED's that can't be switched off.

Other Thoughts: I had to mod the power and HDD LED lights to dim them down. I also replaced the fans with non LED models. Flashing and spinning led lights are not at all Mac like and I wanted this chassis to look kinda like a mac pro.

3 out of 5 eggsRoom for improvement

Pros: See my previous review of 4 eggs. Average them out to 3 and 3/4 eggs. In case I forgot to mention it before, this case has the best system for removing\installing hard drives. So much easier than any other case.

Cons: For the price they should include all the I\O cables you need. The door in from of the optical drive was a great idea but they need to tweak it a little. It puts up a little too much resistance and over time my blu ray drive's tray motor has gotten tired. Now I have to help it close half the time as it gets caught on the door going back in. Last thing. All they had to do is move the hard drive tray back a few more mm (negligible amount) and there would be enough room to remove the front fans to clean the filters without having to take out the hard drive rack. Looking at it I'm a little annoyed because it's SO CLOSE to being JUST ENOUGH room to slide them out past the hard drives and I think they could do it easily. Still, it's not that hard to take out the HD rack and adds maybe a minute to the process of cleaning the front filters every other month. Not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts: Most of what I said in my earlier review stands and this is still the best case that I know of. If it was $50 cheaper the review would go up half an egg but for this kind of money they could have thought ahead a little more. Still as close to perfect as anything I've had and wouldn't trade it for any other case I've seen.

1 out of 5 eggsdisappointed

Pros: big,light,good-looking

Cons: There are 2 USB cable from front panel in the newegg pictures. But in my case, it is 20 pin cable. I don't have the 20 pin USB port in my main board, just have 2 usb ports in the back of the main board. Now, I have no ideal how the conect the front panel to my main board.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: It's the little details that make this a great case (lots of thumbscrews, side panel latching mechanism, rubber mounts for fans and hdd's, removable dust filters on all intakes, copious space to hide cables). My case came with 20pin mobo connectors for the front USB, which was great as I didn't really want to have to run cables out the back.

Cons: It's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I don't have any optical drives so I can't comment on the complaints with installing those.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case -w/ some recommended improvements

Pros: Absolutely Beautiful. Easy internal access. Quiet with good airflow. Minimalist looks although large. Love the wheels. Four USB 3.0 front ports (but connecting and running them with 3.0 capability is a problem.

Cons: This is a stretch but... 1) Lain Li makes an small inexpensive Mobo to USB 3.0 connector although it only supports two front ports (UC-01). Given that this is a high end/ high price case you'
d think they would have included one. As it is you have to route the front USB 3.0 ports through to the rear I/O. 2). Comes with solid side panels. It would be nice if they had an option for one with transparent panels, to get that you have to buy the case and order the additional panel -then store the original because you wouldn't want to throw out a good looking expensive piece.

Other Thoughts: In spite of the expense, no buyers remorse here. It is a beauiful product. Lian Li needs to offer better support for the front USB ports. Specifically something that will connect all four ports internally to the Mobo without having to route through to the I/O ports

5 out of 5 eggsDoesn't get any better

Pros: First off, this case is absolutely beautiful. The thought and workmanship put into this case is simply astounding. There is a definite WOW-factor when opening the box. Some things about the case that I appreciated:
-4x-Front USB3.0
-Removable mobo tray
-Front 3.5" bay
-Single thumb screw to remove either side panel

In regards to some of the complaints from other reviewers. This case is not difficult to build/assemble your system with. Unless you are a seasoned builder, putting a system together is always a pain. From getting everything in the case, to making it all look pretty, it rarely goes smoothly. And yes, with this case, I had a few hiccups. However, you only have to build your system once, but you have to work with it every day. Working with this case on a day to day basis is a dream:
-The front panel connectors are on top of the case and easily accessible.
-It only takes on thumbscrew to remove the side panel.
-Hard drives are secured via 4 thumbscrews that e

Cons: continued...
-Hard drives are secured via 4 thumbscrews that easily come out.
-Keeps components very cool with high-quality, quiet fans. In fact, before I installed my GPU, I had no audible fan noise.

Regarding the fan filters. The PSU filter is very easy to replace and clean. The front dual fan filters are more difficult to get to. However, it only take FOUR thumb screws to remove the hard drive rack. If you can't do that once a month, well... I'm sorry.

The only real con I have is that the reset button is kinda small, meaning that unless you have pencil thin fingers, you'll need something like a pen or pencil to push it down. However, unless you have a buggy system that hangs a lot, you should hardly ever have to use it.

Other Thoughts: This functionality and aesthetics of this case are unrivaled. Lian-Li makes fantastic products and with this case, you get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Case

Pros: 1. Excellent Craftsmanship. The cuts are perfect, but the edges aren't sharp. The aluminum is thick and sturdy. The drive covers look great and hide

2. Design. This Lian-Li case corrected some issues with previous models. The HDD rack orients the HDDs to the MB side of the case in order to hide the SATA cords. The front filters are easily removed by sliding the front fan assembly up and out.

3. Removable MB tray. I found this more useful when tapping new holes for cable ties. I like being able to disassemble my case without having to drill out too many rivets. Both the HDD rack and MB tray come right out.

Cons: I'm not sure I like the PSU mount. The PSU is off-center from the intake holes at the bottom, though it does not seem to affect it. The PSU sits well above the base of the case.
