3 out of 5 eggsFan Noise

Pros: Handle-compact-well built ideal for normal use whisper quiet.

Cons: Been reading all of tje comments wish I had the knowlege may of you do. Needed a compact tower for flying both Flight Sim & X-Plane. FSX is a resource hog. Had one of my Lan buddies suggest this and he helped me do the build.I5-Corsair 750-16g-GTX 660 No additional cooling. The OEM fan drives me nuts constantly speeding up and down even with headset. Whisper quiet for normal computer internet etc. Short of going back to my Antec 900 or larger tower how do I modify this or is this not a tower for an resource intensive hog like flight Sim. Help

4 out of 5 eggsBreak out the power tools and zip ties

Pros: There is nothing more attractive then a dark coloured, single sheet of brushed aluminum to wrap the body of this case, it's attactive, it's adorably tiny, very light weight, and of course, the handle makes this portable (for a desktop environment)
For such a tiny thing I am impressed with how much can be crammed into this, with an ATX sized modular power supply, and a full sized GPU, plus still have room for numerous hard drives and an optical drive, this thing can really pack a punch in the computing world regardless of it's (did I mention adorable?) size.

Cons: I'd recommend reading my "Other thoughts" section to determine if this case is right for you, but as for cons:
The small size is also it's killer. There was some strange construction for the front fan making it neigh impossible to remove without deconstructing the whole case, as well as it lacks a rear exhaust fan. The airflow in this case is a tough one. Using a heatsink and the large power supply, coupled with the RAM it essentially creates a wall that restricts the airflow over the case. Using the highly professional and very difficult to master skill of "hand measuring", when I removed the side panel of the case while running the system under load I found little air being exhausted out the back while nearly a hurricane of air being blown out the side just underneath the PSU and GPU, which is a problem as the side panel does not have vents.
Also, like any tight, ITX case, building the system may be tough to do. thank goodness I used a modular power supply as I found it was easiest to plug all the wires into their respective spot on the motherboard and leaving them unplugged from the PSU, I then managed my cables appropriately, and finally, put the PSU in and plugged all the cables into it.

Other Thoughts: Your experience may vary, but for my build I ran into numerous problems that resulted in my needing to use some extra tools and elbow grease.
Starting at the bottom, and the most simplest: THIS CASE CANNOT REST ON THE FLOOR IF THERE IS CARPET.
If you are using a large GPU, this case CANNOT do that. Running some test, the GPU exceeded 85 Celsius,
Secondly: There IS a drive mount on the bottom of the case: for a 2.5" drive.
The Hard drive cages were massive and restricted airflow, since i only use one HDD, I decided to remove the hard drive cages and just mount my hard drive to the bottom, of course, the mounting points were not meant for a 3.5" HDD, so this resulted in me having to make shift a 3.5" bay to 2.5" converter by utilizing an old Corsair drive tray and some zip ties (and rubbed grommets to keep the drive from touching the bottom, of course)
Secondly the optical drive is loaded in from the back, and so if your optical drive has a housing around the front face, it may be difficult to mount it. I had to break off this front frame of my LG BluRay drive - which opened up a whole new can of worms, but that is unrelated to this case.
Finally, the air flow in this case is so poor you are going to need to do some work at home. Bust out the power drill.
Due to the fact that I removed the hard drive cage, there is actually room to fit another 140mm fan. Running some tests I found underload this reduced my temperatures by about 5-10 celsius as an intake fan.
Additionally, adding vents just below the power supply where the hot air seems to want to exhaust from helps keep the air moving. Although I cannot say anything conclusively, my plan is to mount a couple of small 40mm exhaust fans here to help move the air out better. The hypothesis is that this should help the airflow and cool the system considerably.

In my opinion, this case barely deserves the 4, but I could not recommend it as a first-time ITX build case.
If you build it with just an SSD and no optical drive, this build would probably be considerably easier to do.
Approach this build with caution.

One other note:
While reading through the Q&A on New Egg I noticed someone had mentioned this can fit a full sized tower heatsink. No. Your options are a low profile heatsink (I used the coolermaster Gemin II) or a in-the-box closed loop 140mm radiator - however getting the radiator to fit would be very tough.

4 out of 5 eggsWell made, not so well designed.

Pros: Well built, precise and functional parts. Attractive in its simple exterior appearance. It has a handle.

Cons: Front fan mount system and position; lack of recessed back (or other protective measure for the ports on the back of the case); The apparent bottom fan filter has no actual place to mount a fan, and would be too close to the video card if you did. You would have to reverse the front case fan to create negative pressure for air to enter the bottom anyway, so why is there even a filter? Also, that false wall in front that the fan is mounted to is bare aluminum and is sorely visible through the black front case perforations. It is an ugly bi-product of the design.

Other Thoughts: It is close to being great in many ways, but too often misses the mark. I just don't know what market they were aiming for. If you're going for a very tiny portable build, the TU-100 seems a better choice - specifically as a portable APU work computer but not a high-power gaming lan-box. The TU-200 being larger suggests more space for large components, but this space seems poorly applied. Everything is an inch too short, or an inch too wide or an inch too low. Why such a large HD cage? I have room for a large video card, but no way to properly cool it. There is no room for a large CPU cooler, but I have no convenient way to mount a radiator.

Seriously, they should have allowed real computer users to evaluate this case before committing to production. It has a handle, right? So it's meant to be portable. You have to think of what situations a portable computer would be used in. For us, it appealed as a college dorm computer which can be toted back home to Mom's house every semester. I built this thing and promised a gaming machine. I was able to squeeze in a 120mm radiator into the HD cage and put a lovely Vegas LED fan in the nose. It was a challenge which required some minor machining, the moving of components and the removeal and application of several aluminum pop-rivets. I also had to rob a 1" power supply spacer from another case in order to allow room for the radiator hoses. This served a secondary purpose of protecting the back ports, which was one of my complaints.


Bottom line: if you fit the very narrow demographic which the engineers seem to have aimed at, then you will find this a very well made case. I am sincerely impressed by the assembly, machining and quality of components; enough to look more closely at other Lian Li designs. I don't think I would buy this case again for myself. There are others which handle ITX builds much better and would require far less modification for customization.

5 out of 5 eggsEverything You'll ever need in a case.

Pros: This case has everything going for it; it's got style, excellent build quality, and portability. Those who have a more mature taste in cases will appreciate its craftsmanship and longevity over other plastic and flashy colors or lights. These are a few of my favorite things about this case

-Style; This case oozes style, it really stands out next to other chassis.

-Portability. The handle feels solid, the case has nice plastic corner guards, and the extra GPU support rods give me extra peace of mind while moving the case around.

-Build Quality, this case has an amazing build quality, from the extra corner protection to grommeted screws holding the front case fan on. i've seen other reviews of the cases not having motherboard standoffs and i had no such problem, maybe a quality control issue at one point.

-300mm graphics card support. Honestly, if you have a card over 12" long even most mid to full tower cases will have a tight fit. This also opens up the door to high power mobile gaming / workstation rigs.

-Mini-ITX form factor, with the growing market of APUs and Mini-ITX boards capable of throwing down with full ATX boards, this really opens the door to low cost mid range gaming, especially if Steamos takes off.

-Fan Filters, and two of them. one of the main reasons i chose htis case.

Cons: All the cons i have with this case are negligible, yet noteworthy.

-The brushed aluminum sides, while durable, do scratch and smudge easily. The case will last you if you treat it right.

-The HDD cage can be a double edged sword for some. If your a media junkie, the ability to house 4 3Tb HDD drives and an SSD give this a huge advantage over other small form factor cases. However, if your a gamer like myself the HDD cage blocks the only case fan and prevents the use of a radiator. This is con is negligible in my case *See other thoughts*

-Air flow, however in all cases this side the air flow is going to be restricted and the ability to place an additional fan on the bottom of the case helps greatly.

Other Thoughts: I used this chassis to put together a high power, portable, gaming rig including water cooling. to pull this off it took some forethought and elbow grease.
First i removed the HDD cage and installed a SilverStone 5.25in to slim ODD and 4 2.5" HDD/SSD giving me all the possible space i needed while still matching the brushed aluminum look.
Second i removed the front 140mm fan and installed a 140mm to 120mm fan adapter. this was the difficult part because the screws that go into the front fan were far to long for the adapter. a few drops of super glue worked fine. *although it stuck the rubber grommets to the case and i doubt that i am ever going to get that apart*
lastly i installed a corsair H80i with a push pull configuration, although i had to remove the push because i purchased a slightly longer video card, however i think i can still get the push fan on if i use the GPU support on the card.

I plan on building another rig for my wife using this case, although I'm going to wait for MSI to come out with their Mini-ITX FM2+ gaming board so i can utilize the new A10's

5 out of 5 eggsInteresting build

Pros: This is an excellent little case that fit the goal of building a college and return study and gaming system for my son. The workmanship is amazing, smooth black anodized surfaces with the fit of a sports car. The ability to remove the internal structures for equipment installs and customize the case is excellent. With some patience and planning you can stuff a bunch in this and still have great airflow.

Cons: Due to it's size and power supply placement in relation to CPU ...using a larger air cooler or water cooling for the CPU is very tight or not possible. I settled for factory cooler on AMD A10. Temp is holding below 60 under load. But they run a little hot anyway.

Other Thoughts: I have been looking for this kind of case for a long time so my son can drag it back and forth from college instead of a large format case. He has had it up and running all week during Christmas break and loves it. Loaded with Gigabyte F2A88VN-WIFI,Full size GPU Gigabyte 660GTX, 16 gigs of 1866 Ballistic, 600 watt Corsair, AMD A10-6800K running at 4.1, a Samsung Pro 256 SSD, WD 1T black addition and a Asus BD/CD/DVD burner. ALL fits with room for 3 more drives.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: Beautiful case - outstanding workmanship. One of the best cases I have done a build for. Somewhat cramped inside (my first mini-ATX build), but well thought out.
I bought a single width graphics card, but could have easily used a double wide which seems to be the standard these days.
Easy mounting of the SSD - no additional brackets required.

Cons: Hard drive cage has a built in back plane - neat idea, but not all hard drives will fit in for every slot. Still 2 out of 4 slots were useable like this. The others I use for my SSD, so it really is not an issue.

Other Thoughts: Tempted to use this as my standard case for future builds!

Newegg delivery was great, received it well in advance of Christmas.

4 out of 5 eggsSo close... Too big!

Pros: Relatively small, transportable, full-sized P/S. Pretty nice fit/finish.

Cons: FAR larger than necessary. Who needs a full-sized on-board optical drive?!? Roughly HALF the interior space of the box is wasted. Should be re-engineered.

Other Thoughts: I take this on trips. There's so much empty space with this case, even when fully-built, I actually ball-up underwear and t-shirts and STORE THEM INSIDE THE CASE. Makes me nuts that no vendor will build a "smallest possible" mini-itx/full-sized P/S case. Why, WHY W H Y NOT ?!?

5 out of 5 eggsvery awesome

Pros: the hot swap 4 drive backplane is awesome and i don't believe there is anything like it in a mini-itx format.

i bought a power supply bracket to hold the passive psu half way outside the case to give me room for a giant passive heat sink. both are kept cool by the large case fan on the front. genius! and very quiet.

i also bought the optional 4 ssd drive bracket to replace the cd/dvd bay. thus, i can use the 4 hot swap trays for WD 2TB black drives to hold my files and provide backup. note, you gotta have a sata expansion pci card in the mobo slot to add the drives because the mini itx board doesn't have that many onboard sata ports. in total i have 8 drives in the machine.

and keep in mind it easily portable and can pack a huge punch of computing power and storage in a small format.

Cons: nothing. nothing at all.

Other Thoughts: build:
ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe LGA 1155 Intel Z77
Crucial Ballistix 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 SDRAM
Intel Core i7-3770K Graphics 4000
2 x Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SATA III SSD (raid 0)
SeaSonic Platinum Series 400W ATX12V (fanless)

4 out of 5 eggsNice ... but ...

Pros: great fit and finish ... eminently practical and portable ... most things well thought out in design ... ability to put big gpu and alot of hd's in such a sff

Cons: be very careful with psu selection - even relatively shallow psu's will end up getting real close to the side brace bar of the hd cage - lian li should redesign it ... the hot swap sata board is a little flimsy ... placement of 2.5 hd spaces is awkward ... also, the side panels dont hold on too good if your cables rub up against them - they might pop out on there on ... be careful with cable routing if possible - which is tough given the size of this case and all the stuff i had to put in it

Other Thoughts: if this is ur first itx build you must assemble the system in the perfect order or you will be wasting unnecessary time and knuckle skin putting your rig together ... nevertheless, these are minor quibbles - i love this system and will never build a micro or full atx again ... i would also advise being careful with component selection - since ventilation is limited get low tdp gear - my rig: 4770s cpu; asrock z87itx mb; crucial low profile ddr3l; gtx 760; seasonic 660w platinum; 4 hd's and 1 ssd
