5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Lots of room for hard drives if you want to make this an htpc/media server as I did. Nice looking. Solid and well built.

Cons: Would be nice if the front wasn't so plain and maybe had a volume knob and a built in ir and remote would be nice. And some kind of display would be nice too

Other Thoughts: For the price this is really nice even with the other stuff I wanted.

5 out of 5 eggsHTPC CASE

Pros: Smaller Case that supports an ATX board along with an AMD R9 280X GPU. Plenty of ventilation along with a couple of 140mm fans. My Artic Cooler CPU fan is 135mm tall and it fits in here as well. your HDD's will fit with an optional 140 mm fan just be mindful of the way you put your HDD bay brackets back in. front USB 3.0 and esata is a plus! This case is a couple of inches shorter than my last one so all my cables and cords in the back aren't bent in a ninety degree angle anymore now.

Cons: My complaint would be no rear exhaust fans but I did read that before I bought it.

Other Thoughts: I put another 140mm fan next to the drive bay but before I did that I took the filter off that since it's an exhaust fan and not a fresh air fan. I figured it's a moot point to have a filter on one that is blowing hot air out. I took that filter and place it on the lid since my CPU fan is a push pull type and it does seem to help ventilate my system better. My PSU has a 140mm fan on it as well and use it as an exhaust fan as well instead of flipped over sucking air from the outside. With an ATX Mobo you can have four HDD's and a SSD. You'll have to take trhe bottom bay off the other one and screw in the applicable holes of the one you plan on using. It will fit and does leave room for drawing air if you run your cables in a neat and tidy fashion.

2 out of 5 eggsNot compatible with OCZ SSD 3.5 Adapter Plate

Pros: I was able to reuse my surplus ATX MB and power supply.

Cons: Not compatible with OCZ SSD 3.5 adapter plate. The mounting screws are not the same size. Back in the box goes my SSD! I'm not at all happy with that.

3 out of 5 eggsLight Weight and Expandable but Expensive

Pros: Light Weight, Heavily Expandable, ATX and mATX Compatible, USB 3.0, eSATA, Sleek Design.

Cons: Lots of Screws, Additional Fans Needed, Loud OEM Fans, Pricey for what you get.

Other Thoughts: Some of the complaints about this case are warranted, but there's a lot that aren't. If your concern is good air flow, you don't buy a HTPC case... period. If you want a case that's easy to swap components without much disassembly, again you don't buy a HTPC case. That aside, this is a really light, heavily customizable HTPC case. Lots of room for HDD, Optical Drive, and IR Receiver/Display. It fits full size ATX which is a huge plus for those transferring their regular computer to a HTPC case. There's quite a fair amount of screws that need to be removed for installation, but you shouldn't be taking this apart more than once a year for upgrades. Air flow is not great, I'd recommend at least adding a Top Side Fan and probably move the Front Right Fan to the Front Left. The OEM fans are one speed and slightly loud, so you'll probably just want to replace them anyway. For the price it definitely doesn't seem like a bargin, but I got it on sale for $135 which made the whole thing a little easier to swallow. Overall, it's actually a good case but probably not worth $180... get it when it's on sale like I did.

2 out of 5 eggsNewegg shipped wrong item

Pros: nice case

Cons: I ordered the Black case you sent me the Silver case
that doesn't match my TV or AV gear I
thought Newegg would exchange the item and send the correct item to me .

When I ordered this item I used a promo code discount and there was when ordered the case free shipping. Now the price is much higher because no promo code and now you charge shipping.



Its not my fault Newegg shipped me the wrong
item.

Yes you refunded my money, but, I am short another $47.99, comparred to todays cost that reflects
$38 more than I paid for the item using the Promo Code, plus today you are charging $9.99 additional for shipping, and my order was free shipping.

This is a real mess, and Newegg Customer service blew
my budget with extra expenses, instead of just correcting Neweggs error.

I bought a lot of other items from Newegg for this HTPC
and now those other items don't have a case for me to install them into. So I have a CPU, a MB with onboard
GPU, Ram, a power supply, and no H

Other Thoughts: I have spent several thousand dollars this year at Newegg
one would expect them to correct an error in a way that didn't cost me more. After all its Neweggs error

5 out of 5 eggsCooler for this small case

Pros: Beautiful, I love the aesthetics.

Cons: Supplied fans aren't PWM.

Other Thoughts: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186065 Get this HSF, it is the largest air cooler with the best TDP you can get for this case.

Door for the cd drive broke, but it's my fault for dropping it and they sell replacements. Remember it's delicate. Fixed it with some epoxy.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid case, sturdy.

Cons: Had to remove one HDD bay so I could comfortably fit the PSU. The inside of the case almost seemed like a puzzle. Certain pieces/components had to be removed and installed in certain order so they would fit. Cannot see the optical drive light when in use. Dust covers for the fans are pretty cheap (and needs another one included for the top, optional fan). PSU interrupts the cross flow of air through the case (vent should be behind the HDD cage instead)

Other Thoughts: Good case for an HTPC. Decent amount of room left over once everything is installed. I wish the Lian Li logo was removable

2 out of 5 eggsAluminum Foil Puzzle

Pros: Aluminum
USB 3.0

Cons: Flimsy
Congested
Drive Bay Cage
Optical Bay Door wont close
Covers key components

Other Thoughts: Seriously, this thing looks much better in the pictures. This is the lightest, thinnest, flimsiest, congested, aluminum puzzle you've ever seen.

The positive reviews from other people are from people who are easily pleased... or have no experience with other cases. I'm having major buying remorse. What makes it worse... this is after having to RMA a Moneaul Case with was awesome, but the display didnt work. Much superior quality however.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Many bays, drive bays have some reconfigurability (4 stack instead of 3 stack), two 140mm fans w/ filters that are queit (both on same side) MB mounting pins already in place. Thumb screw access to remove drive bay cross bars (although the bays themselve take 4 phillips screws to detatch from cross bar and from each other. It has front panel USB 3.0 connectors, part of the reason I selected this model.

Cons: Although this is rated for ATX, I installed a mATX: ASUS Maximus Gene V. As with all HTPC profiles, it is very crowded. The Optical drive bay stack covers the MB 24-pin power supply plug in (and a few others). The Cool Master Silent Pro Hybrid RS-850-SPHA-D3 24-pin connector had to be severly folded and zipped tied down to the case floor for the Optical Drive bay to fit, without removing the 2nd bay (which is necessary to keep the blank cover on). A standard 140mm fan (grill is there, fan is bought seperately) will not fit in the opposite wall by the HD bays. I'll likely install a slim version. Although it comes with 6 3.5" bays (2 stacks of 3 bays on top of each other, running front to back on one side, top of all 3 bays (2 HD & OD) can be used as 2.5" bays), the 2nd stack must be removed for a larger ATX PSU. I couldn't not find a quiet PSU that would fit, so the 2nd stack is not installed. I estimate the actual avail room allowing for cable leads is 5.5"w x 5.5"L so 5x5PSU

Other Thoughts: HTPC are notoriously crowded due to their profile. I hope by the time I need the 2nd HD bay stack, I have found a smaller PSU with enough watts to fit. Also, the 1st HD bay blocks the airflow the vent on its side. That being said I like the unit overall. Accessories I wish they'd make. 5.25" LCD screen for HTPC, a RF receiver for remote control, optional cross bar to turn the HD bays lengthwise instead of widthwise.

1 out of 5 eggsit's a disaster so far...

Pros: It's light and looks nice. It can supposedly accommodate an ATX mother board, an ATX powersupply, and six 3.5" harddrives, but I didn't find that to be true.

Cons: It uses lots and lots of little screws to hold the drive bays in place. Despite being larger than my Denon stereo, I was not able to fit everything together and now I'm stuck. I used a Corsair AX750 powersupply, but its length interfered with the one hard drive cage, which I had to remove. So much for up to 6 hard drives. It has two intake fans on the side, but the one butts up against the optical drive tray. There is space on the back of the case for probably two 80mm fans, but there are no fans or vents. I was worried about fitting an ASUS F1A75-V EVO FM1 AMD A75 motherboard with a Noctua NH-C12P SE14 cooler, but I didn't take into account the optical drive bay. It's impossible to fit any optical drives in there with that cooler and mobo. For the moment, I have the optical drive sticking out like a tongue, mocking me. The included cooling fans seem loud to me. The real kicker is that the front panel doesn't seem to be working. No lights, nothing.

Other Thoughts: I was very careful with plugging in the wires for the front panel (the ASUS board comes with a little plug that lets you plug the case panel's plugs into it and then you can easily plug it into the motherboard). Maybe I got the polarity wrong, but you wouldn't think that would affect the power switch. Also, the USB 3 plug didn't work. I plugged in an external 3.0 drive, and it lit up, but Windows didn't recognize it. It worked on the 3.0 plug on the back of the motherboard, however. The finish on the case is very easy to scratch. Also, if you want to use the vent on the top of the case, you have to buy the mesh separately. I sent email via Lian Li's website regarding the front panel; hopefully the buttons can be resolved. I guess I either need to find a different cpu cooler or give up on having an internal blu ray drive. I could sort of live with that if this case were under $70, but for the price, I was expecting more.
