5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

Pros: This is my third Lian Li case. I have been wanting to purchase this case since back in February. The 30% off New Egg sale made it a reality.
1. This case is beautiful. It has clean classic lines. It is understated.
2. It is flexible. You can change the hard drive cooling fans from the right side to the left side.
3. It has 3 120 mm and 1 140 mm fans. Add the bottom inverted outside power supply intake and you have quit by design.
4. I boot off of a 2.5 inch hybrid drive. Now I can hot swap my 3.5 inch drives. This will hold 8 drives.
5. Plenty of depth for my GTX 670, my Asus horizontal sata connectors and my oversized Zalman power supply.
6. Tooless installation.
This is the case I've been wating for.
Did I mention the beautiful black aircraft quality aluminum finish. The side panels don't seem flimsey to me. They are more rigid than my 8 year old original Lian Li case.
That case has served me well, but its time to move on and I really wanted a black case.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I have an ASUS P8P67 rev 3.1, Core I5 2400, Zalman 850 watt PS. Sound Blaster X-FI Fatality, EVGA GTX-670, Acer 27" 3D monitor. I don't overclock. I have no problem playing Warcraft, Diablo III or Starcraft in 3D. With this case the highest temp I see is 105F.

4 out of 5 eggsExpensive, but looks great

Pros: For reference, my system components are listed in other thoughts.

- First off, the case looks amazing. The brushed black aluminum is really nice all around. The interior is not painted, but still looks surprisingly sharp.
- Fairly easy to work with overall. No huge issues.
- The case is very light. This wasn't a huge factor for me, but I love it after having steel cases for so long. It's so easy to pull it out when connecting a new monitor or whatever.
- Cable management goes in pros for sure, but it could be just slightly better with a little larger cable routing space.
- Simple, with very few frills and lights (this is one of my personal preferences).
- Cool enough despite the intake fans mostly set to cool the HDDs. The 140 mm fan on top and the 120 mm in the back do a good job of removing heat. Obviously having the Noctua cooler helps a lot too (note that it fits nicely in this case).
- No plastic! I love this since I was tired of broken tabs and ugly scratches on

Cons: - Expensive...this isn't a direct con, since you obviously know what you're paying, but it's worth listing because there are other cases that are much cheaper and may be lacking only slightly compared to this one.
- Construction is a negative for me. The internal structure is solid enough overall, but the panels are all rather flimsy. Also, my case would not sit level until I removed one of the feet and put a narrow washer in to space it better. Now it sits firmly without wobbling. For what this case costs, silly things like that shouldn't happen.
- ATX motherboards are mounted too close to the 140 mm top fan. They could have easily lowered the MB mounts a half an inch and not lost a thing. I don't really understand this oversight.
- There are fan filters on the intake fans, but they are a little awkward to remove due to their location. Not terrible, just not perfectly thought out like you might expect.
- Very minor thing...the hot swap panels for HDDs are ugly. I removed t

Other Thoughts: Note that this case does have a couple LED lights. It has a very bright blue one for the power and a less intense red one for HDD access.

One should note that this is not an especially quiet case (no insulation). However, I am a stickler for noise, and my configuration is extremely quiet unless the 5850 spools up for a game. My HDDs are quiet and the cooler is almost silent all the time. The 2500K is OC'ed to 4 GHz too. I'd buy something with better airflow if I was trying to max OC an i7 with only fans.

I like this case a lot, but due to the price and a few construction issues, this case gets a 4 out of 5. If it retailed for about seventy bucks cheaper, I'd probably be okay with rating it 5 out of 5.

If you want a simple case that really does look great, this is a great option. If you plan your build appropriately, it'll be cool and quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsworth every penny

Pros: as always, very well made, you never get the sense when building in a lian-li that any corners have been cut, every part is as good as it can be. this is the first screwless expansion card system i've ever used that actually works. the hard drive mounting system is pretty excellent, and if you work in your case a lot, you're not disconnecting and reconnecting right on the drive, which is good for connector longevity. considerably quieter than my old A10 case. looks excellent

Cons: i'm not a huge fan of the wire management channel, it ended up being an encouragement to be lazy and do a worse wiring job than i normally would, but i suppose for people who would've done no wire management it's probably a good thing.

Other Thoughts: as other case makers have nearly all moved production to china and allowed quality to disappear completely, lian-li remains a high quality product made in taiwan by free people who actually get paid a living wage. never change lian-li, just keep getting better, and i'll keep buying your cases exclusively.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Simple quality black aluminum case.
Lighted power and reset buttons. The power putton is blue led and the reset button is red led.
USB 2.0 and 3.0 on front panel.
PCI clamps are great.
No problems with the top fan.
Love the front panel loading of the HDDs, and the lock.

Cons: Did not like the hot swap panels for the HDDs, easily removed.

Other Thoughts: AsRock extreme4 gen3 MB barely fits. The cpu heatsink and the MB tray cutout do not line up.

5 out of 5 eggshigh price but good case

Pros: Classy look without being gaudy (no lights/designs etc)
Ample room, typical Lian Li qualities like good joint fits, no sharp edges, etc.
PSU clamp design works really really well.
Card clamp system is truly better than using screws. The clamps for 5 1/4" drives also very good.
The front loading hdd system, again, very good.

Cons: The top 140mm fan is a bit close to the top of the mobo, but has about 1/2" max clearance. Might be an issue to some.
There is no mobo tray like other designs.
SSD drive "sled" won't work on the hot swap bays. Must buy adapter, which is about $15.
Overall the thickness of case is not as good as prior units I have. The frame is thick, but sides etc seem lacking.
Cooling is not as good as in the past due to no 120mm fans on front. The side mounts really do keep hdds cool, but system temps are higher than my last Lian Li case.

Other Thoughts: I paid 229 for this case. Most expensive case I've owned. I have had other Lian Li cases, and this one is typical of Lian Li, lots of detail and great quality. I would think twice about buying this again due to what I consider it being a little more cheaply made. Once everything is installed, I don't worry about that though, it is very firm feeling considering the skin of the case is thinner than my others.

I love the hdd system and the overall layout. The cable management is great, with lots of slots etc to sneak cables through.

If you don't mind dropping the dough, it is a good case. I would not get rid of it now, but as I said, I would think twice if I had a budget restriction. You can find some older Lian Li cases on clearance, which might be a better option.

I have multiple Lian Li cases, and have owned many other brands. I like what Lian Li does, and cannot seem to venture into another brand now. They spoil you with the attention to detail.

4 out of 5 eggsNew build

Pros: Excellent construction: fit is perfect; sleek, minimalistic look; excellent wire managment; solid frame but still light. Bonus for the USB 3.0 front header, hard to find on a case, and the 6 lockable, hot swap bays. Best design I've ever seen for the bracket holders for the rear PCI slots. Floor vent with air filter for PSU is a plus.

Cons: Anti-vibration rails for the HDDs and the pin/lever mount for optical drives are not sufficient to reduce noise. (LL's rubber ring system was much better. Expected better considering the price.) Top and rear case fans are LOUD (ended up replacing both, case is significantly quieter now). Not enough clearance between the top fan and the mobo: had to replace it with a 140mm slim fan, otherwise it rested on the chipset heatsink. Would have preferred front mounted fans, rather than side mounted, questionable airflow.

Other Thoughts: Case was bigger than expected for a mid-sized tower. Despite the cons, which can be worked around, I can foresee using this case in multiple builds.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Clean Build

Pros: Looks Great. Very Good Cooling. Quiet. Nice Cable Management. Worth the price. No PSU, so I can use my own 80+gold PSU. 6 Hot-swap HDD Bays. USB 3 header connector for on-Mobo header connection.

Cons: Nothing Significant. See build comments.

Other Thoughts: This was a great build. My complaints are merely academic. Fit and finish are top top notch. That being said, the top fan was so close to MB CPU power connectors, I had to cut off the locking tabs to stop the 140mm fan blades from rubbing them. One too many fan connectors for my ASUS P8BWS On-Board Fan Power Headers. It would be nice to provide a 3-pin adapter so the 2 HDD fan connectors can be combined and connected to one MB Header. The toolless Optical Drive Securing Lever was insufficient to prevent vibration, but I was able to secure it with screws from the other side, so not entirely toolless. Be sure to use the short MB securing thumbscrews near the PCIE16 slot, or they will be in the way of a discrete GPU card installation. Expansion slot toolless securing levers are a bit sticky, but work very very well.

3 out of 5 eggsGot What I Expected

Pros: This was my second PC build. Heard about the Lian Li Quality so I ventured from the Antec Sonata. Every quality claim was true. Lot's of room. Very solid construction. Looks great. I could use this case over and over for new builds. Very simplistic (which is what I was looking for). Great cable management. I went for this one versus the sub $100 one for the look and lack of 'neon'. A bit of a flyer as there were no reviews yet posted on this new product.

Cons: This case was a tad bigger than needed. No lights at all, not even a HDD indicator light. This case is loud - and I hope the cause is the AMD X6 1090 stock fan. New CPU Cooler/Fan on the way - which should silence the machine. I will update this review after new fan/cooler installed.

Other Thoughts: I would have given 5 eggs if it wasn't for the noise and the total lack of lights. I don't want neon - but a simple indicator light would have been welcomed.

3 out of 5 eggsnice, not great, case

Pros: light

awesome hot-swap hdd tray - pull off the front cover and there's room to install 6 3.5" hdds, and another tray at the bottom for 2 ssds.

awesome, clean, minimalistic looks

cable management system on the side of the case is a nice touch

tool-less hardware thingy is awesome

Cons: not really a con, but it's a bit loud. may not bother some, but i like my pcs silent.

expensive. if i had to do it all over again, i'd probably get another case
