4 out of 5 eggsNewegg: Fix the photos!

Pros: Photographer is an idiot for taking pictures of the wrong side of the case. We can't see the side where we install everything. This is a pseudo-BTX case, and the Photographer took regular ATX side photos.

Cons: Photographer is an idiot for taking pictures of the wrong side of the case. We can't see the side where we install everything. This is a pseudo-BTX case, and the Photographer took regular ATX side photos.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Lian-Li knockout

Pros: Excellent air flow, unique and functional hard drive mounting. Decent cable routing for a Lian-Li case. Precision design, extra parts, great fans included. You can mount large video cards and power supply in this case for its size.
This case is great for a permanent setup where you dont need to plug anything in very often. If you need frequent USB hook ups get a USB hub. The magnetic door on the front is small and not easy to put your fingers in. If you have small children that like to mess with your PC this is good. They cant tamper with the connections. Overall I am very happy with this case, I have had many Lian-Li cases and this is a great unique design that serves a purpose.

Cons: There is only on con about this case and that is running your external cables but know that going into it. Video, LAN ,USB and any other cables you need are going to run through the side and out the back. This case is great for a permanent setup where you dont need to plug anything in very often. If you need frequent USB hook ups get a USB hub. The magnetic door on the front is small and not easy to put your fingers in.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great cable management, sleek professional look, great air flow. My Intel i5-2500k at stock temps and stock cooling idles at 45 deg C, my 5770 idles at 30 deg C. Got it for $70 on sale, this is probably the best $70s I have ever spent.

Cons: The i/o cables are in the front, which are just unconventional. It's possible to run them into the back/ through the left panel (behind the motherboard) but that can be a pain to do if you happen to move your case around a lot. There are also two slits that you can run the cables through in the front without ruining the aesthetic too much.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: To be honest, I was very skeptical about this case especially with all the negative words around. But the moment I received the case I was impressed. It is extremely well constructed. Light weight but sturdy. The design is clean. It come with a lot of accessories. It even has a small case for your spare screws, rubbers, etc. The level of attention to details on this case is unsurpassed. a lot of rubbers to reduce vibration. Very creative hard drive mounting! it simply works. The mounting allows more airflows within the case. It makes the case look so spacious. It fits huge CPU cooler. I had a Noctua NH-D14. It fits with no problem. I has had a 5870 with arctic accelero cooler. It is very long but also fits with no problem. it runs very quiet.

Cons: The only compatibility issue comes with the video card holder. The NH-D14 is so massive that it blocks the holder. But I can just leave it like a regular case without holder.
For those people who need front panel audio port and use a discrete soundcard, this case might pose some problem. It won't be very convenient to access the soundcard analog audio ports. But I upgraded my audio to extermal amp+bookshelf speakers. So my headphone plugs in the amp. You do need a long HDMI/DVI cable. 10ft at least if your computer sits under your desk. Check your mouse and keyboard calbe if you want rout your mouse and keyboard cable to the back.

Other Thoughts: It is an excellent unique case. For a price under $70? Come on! It is a no brainer!

5 out of 5 eggsI love this case.

Pros: Yes, it's backwards, but if it works, is it really?

Clean lines, flawless construction, looks fantastic. Provides easy access to hardware (crucial for me).

Cons: No cons. Would have liked filters included, but meh, easy enough to acquire and they are likely better than what would have been stock.

Other Thoughts: Lian Li PC 100 w/
i7 3820, Asus P9X79 Deluxe, 32GB GSkill
2 256GB Adata SSD, 2 1TB Samsung, 2 ATI 6970
Xion 1000w, etc

(also reversed the flow and added 2 140mm filters as a previous reviewer mentioned)

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Full aluminum, nice build quality

Cons: Serious compatibility issue

1. Long graphic cards won't fit in since the HDD mounting rack is going to block the power plug for the GPU.

2. The VGA support may have compatibility issue with certain gpu cooler.

I spend 3 hours to move my hardware into the new case. But my Gigabyte 6870s force me to remove both HDD tray and VGA support. The design of this case is unacceptable, extremely unfriendly.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for certain setups - 4.5 stars

Pros: Works great if you have a desk where your computer is setup to the right of where you sit and the case sits longways against the wall. My previous case had the rear of the case closest to me and if I wanted to use the optical drive I would have to get up.
Can actually route all needed cables (kb/mouse/sound/monitors) through the front holes in the case as long as you remove the grommet holders.
Seems to have pretty good airflow.
A lot quieter than my previous case.
Very well built.
Plenty of room behind the motherboard tray to hide cables.
Can fit large heatsinks - ex. Noctua NH-D14
Almost everything is rubber mounted which helps eliminate noise.
Thumb screws galore.

Cons: If you use a large air cooler, such as the Noctua NH-D14, the PCI-e bracket becomes useless as it will not fit anymore.
The same goes for the HDD bracket if you use any 3.5" disks and have to mount some of them near where the CPU cooler is. This is because you will have to turn the drives around so the power and data connectors hook up near the back of the case so the cords do not come in contact with the heatsink fan. If you have all right angle connectors this will not apply.

Other Thoughts: System:
ASROCK Extreme 6 motherboard
i7-3820 @ 4.9Ghz
Noctua NH-D14 cooler
16GB Samsung low profile low voltage DDR3-1600 @ 2064
2x Vistiontek AMD 6870 video cards
X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion Series
2x WD 500GB Black
2x Seagate 1TB
Patriot Pyro 120GB SSD

5 out of 5 eggsTo answer your question..

Pros: other thoughts

Cons: other thoughts

Other Thoughts: To the reviewer below me.. The entire idea behind having the MOBO interface up front is to never have an obsolete front panel interface. If you read the specs and watch some video reviews you'd know what your getting into before you spend a bunch of money. Sure, you'll need some longer cables depending on your setup, so what?!.. If you can afford this case then you can afford a couple cables. Just a suggestion,.. Take 20 minutes and do a little homework before spending your hard earned money so that you dont have to pretend that youre going to throw your new case away. Your review is 90% opinion bases and forgive but its not a good basis for the serious buyer. I've been buying from Newegg for 10+ years and count on legit reviews for most of my purchases, you get the point.. Let me know where you live and what day your tossing it so that I can have a free case ;)

1 out of 5 eggsLIan Li PC-100 ATX Case "BAD"

Pros: Extremely well built, Extremely great quality of workmanship and great looking case

Cons: Why would anyone buy a case where the MB goes in backwards, I had no idea of the problems this would create. I had to buy longer cables, its crazy having all the connections in the front of the case, just so you can "reroute" them back to the rear. I admit I was stupid stupid stupid, it sounded like a good idea but after spending the evening putting my comp back together I'd almost give it away to get what I thought I wanted. In other words this piece of junk is going to the garage as soon as Newegg has a sale of the one I really wanted. They made me delete all my expletives !!!

Other Thoughts: Think seriously about the implications of a motherboard that sits in backwards.. do u want all your normally rear flowing cables to come out the front, me either so spend some more money on longer cables... Otherwise it is well made and looks good.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow up info

Pros: Here are the 140mm fan filters i am using for the 2x 140mm fans reversed in the back of the case: Item #: N82E16811999226

They are magnetic filters and should connect directly to the metal mesh guards without having to screw, and unscrew them every time you want to wash them.
They are $8.99 per filter

With the fans reversed, you will have positive air preasure creating a better vacuum and will eliminate any
possibilty of hot air being sucked back in the front from blower style video cards like my HD6950 reference design.

Get one of these cases while the $100 promo code is still valid.. needless to tell yall but, its a great deal on a top notch case :)

Cons: none
