4 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect.

Pros: - Beautiful case.
- I like the slight blue glow from the LEDs, could be a bit dimmer.
-Side panels work perfectly.
- Easy cable management behind the motherboard with openings at almost all the right spots to keep cables out of the way.
-HDD try works wonderfully, flip those drives so you can hide all the cabling.

Cons: -Could use two 120mm fan spots on top.
-5.25 bays are way too difficult to work with.
-Front filter is way to hard to remove to clean, why do i have to remove the entire HDD rack to remove it?
-A Very large case.

Other Thoughts: Reset button is impossible to hit without a paperclip, but in my opinion this is good as it keeps accidents from happening. For the price they should have included a SATA hot-swap board attached to the HDD trays, just makes sense.

5 out of 5 eggsIt has wheels!

Pros: • All aluminum
• wheeled
• nice style
• great cable management
• roomy
• sturdy thick doors
• Superior pieces-parts included, even a parts case
• big fans with included molex/3 pin adapters on each

Cons: • wonky 5 1/4 install/remove routine.
• wheels don't swivel
• reset button up top is too small and the switch is too deep. You need to mod it to get it to work correctly!
• surprisingly expensive
• LED Fans

Other Thoughts: This case requires more initial time to get fully installed than average it seems. While there's nothing missing, sometimes there's too much: such as the extra drive cage or the distance between the PSU connector and the PSU. Or the power on LED with fan LEDs. Minor quibbles as the time would be spent otherwise messing with cables or disconnecting something to get at something else. There's plenty of room and everything is laid out correctly. There's even a spot for a SSD over the PSU.

Build quality is sturdy, especially the doors. The doors are probably the most sturdy thing in the whole case. I already broke one of the weird 5 1/4 fakey doors. Plastic pivot hinge a micrometer wide and a miniscule spring to hold it closed broke off. The case is excellent and worth the effort, great air flow, great style and will likely be useful for 10+ years.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: The case is large with plenty of space with easy cable management and a clean design. The sides of the case lock closed with a simple pin lock along the length of the side.

Cons: Drive bay doors make installing optical bays challenging.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: I absolutely love most of the design features of this case. The heat dissipation for a solid case seems excellent as well. With just the Corsair H80 I am overclocked on my AMD PhenomII 965 to 4.0GHz and even at constant load never see over 47 C on my CPU and my dual XFX 6870s stay well below that.

Cons: I would love to have a windowed panel available even just after market so I don't feel like I need to mod it to see inside this beauty of a case. It is very expensive sadly but the quality is amazing. Finally I wish I had room on the top fan plate to put dual 120mm fans and with that room for a 240mm rad. All in all though a great case.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful easy-to-install PC case

Pros: Everything but one.

Cons: The USB 3.0. The space between the ports are too narrow. The cables are too long and thick. I would like to have USB 2.0 ports as well as USB 3.0. There are converter, but not convenient.

Other Thoughts: Just a beautiful case!

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a circus

Pros: Beautiful case in general. This is my 3rd or 4th Lian Li case.

Cons: HOWEVER, once I put the system together I found that the top fan was broke. Newegg can't just send a new fan they must replace the whole case. Thus I would have to take the computer back apart, ship it to Newegg, get a new case from Newegg and rebuild my computer!

Newegg is not capable of solving the problem without costing me hours of work plus down time of my computer.

I bought a new fan from another etailer.

Other Thoughts: This is totally insane. Also sent a message to Lian Li a week ago about the problem ----- nothing.

Beautiful case but you better not have a "minor" problem and expect a solution!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but not perfect

Pros: The typically Lian Li quality (great!) with excellent case air flow.

Cons: The grommets supplied for water cooling tubes are garbage. If you're using 1/4" they might work but for bigger tubing you will have buy replacements. Far below Lian Li standards.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy Build

Pros: Well thought-out design. With one exception, everything in this case seems to have making a build go well in mind. My two favorite features are difficult to pick out from the pictures here. I was glad I checked the manufacturer's site to see how the case comes apart before I bought it.

The highlight for me was the slide-out motherboard tray. The ability to work with motherboard, CPU cooler and match up the rear face-plate outside of the case saved working with lots of awkward angles and tight spaces.

The hard-drive rack saved time as well. The drives get four thumbscrews each with thick rubber washers. The drives then slide into the rack, and once everything is in place, a sliding gate, secured by another pair of thumbscrews holds all the drives in place.

Once up and running, there's plenty space and options for cable routing as well as nice air flow, and the fans are very quiet.

Cons: The front panel is awkward. If you wanted to put a DVD drive in the top slot, you'd have to take out the lowest of the three face plates, then unscrew the second and slide it down and out, then unscrew the top one and slide it down and out, put the drive in the top rack, and then put the other two face plates back in. I don't plan on having more than one drive, and I used the lowest one.

I had some difficulty with the top panel USB ports. They connected to the motherboard fine, but they will not connect with my thumb drive. The thumb drive works fine in other devices, including the ports on the rear panel of the motherboard as well as a USB hub connected to the top -panel port. The top panel ports on the case work fine with every other USB device I own. Maybe the thumb drive is worn?

Also, the headphone jack on the top panel isn't quite right. It works with some headphones and not others where every set of headphones I've tried works fine with the rear motherboard audio out.

Other Thoughts: When I was testing everything with the side-plates off, the case was sitting on slightly uneven ground, and the top fan started vibrating. A little re-adjusting to square-up the case stopped the noise, and once the side panels were on, the case felt rigid and solid, and the fan's not made any unusual noise since.

Finally, they say it's 'USB 3.0 compatible', but doing that means routing cables out of the back of the case and using the rear-panel 3.0 slots. I used the 3.0 header which came with the motherboard to make two of the front panel USB's 3.0, and used the Lian Li-provided 2.0 header for the other two.

Doing it their way costs two USB ports, creates odd cable routing inside the case, and has cables coming out of an expansion slot to connect to the rear panel. A loose definition of 3.0 compatible, I think. This is a great case, and creating an awkward, non-solution to be able to paste a buzzword on the shipping container seems silly.

A great case.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice. Happy so far.

Pros: - Big and roomy for easy component installation and cable routing.
- Anodized aluminum. Durable, high quality finish. No plastic to break.
- Hardware package and included storage container.
- Easy to remove and attach sides of case. Securely held in place by metal latch mechanisms.
- Runs cool and silent.
- HDD mounting system uses thumb screws and rubber grommets. Vibration free and quick/easy to install HDD.
- Isolated PSU bay with cable management system.
- Removable MB tray. Held in place by 6 thumb screws, slides out the back.
- Plenty of room and openings to route cables behind motherboard tray. Clean looking install.
- Up to 4X USB3.0 ports on front of case (can use as USB 2.0). Plus eSATA and audio.

Cons: - Not a fan of the faceplates over the external 5.25" bays. I removed them and slid my optical drives forward to be flush with the front of the case.
- The 4 front panel USB3.0 ports are terminated in standard USB3.0 connectors. ONE adapter is included to convert 2 of these 4 cables into a connector that can be plugged into your motherboard. There should be TWO of these. Don't like to route cables out the back of the case to rear external ports.
- Opening behind CPU on motherboard tray interferes with mounting of rear bracket for CPU cooler. Opening is large enough, but does not line up well with CPU on ASUS motherboard.
- Tolerances off a bit. Sometimes things didn't line up quite as well as I would have liked. Nothing that prevented the build, though.
- Price

Other Thoughts: All in all, happy with purchase. It was on the expensive side, but it's a good looking, durable, functional case.

5 out of 5 eggsgood case

Pros: Very solid,great air flow.Lots of room inside.i really like the rounded top look,makes my pc-7 look like its from the 90`s. overall very pleased with on sale so the sting wasn`t that bad

Cons: plastic bezel?? the only thing stayin in the box.repaced ASAP.seems quicker to slide out mobo to install 5.25 drives,hard drive cage one piece,has to be removed to clean fan filters,kind of a pain but better than replacing cracked faceplate retainer clips ,would be nice if lian li could offer a model option with window, black interior and black wheels

Other Thoughts: overall decent but not perfect read a couple neg reviews,1 guy even said worst case ever,really?
