5 out of 5 eggsNice, clean case

Pros: Outside:
No flashing lights.
Doesn't look like a spaceship reject.
Super clean and smooth lines, love the rounded edges.
Easy clean surface, doesn't show every fingerprint or mark.
Overall 10/10

Inside:
Using a generic LG Optical Drive there was zero issues with install. Tbh I was surprised to read people having problems with clearance of the wiring for the top I/O panel.
Although its not listed as 'supported' I was able to fit my XL-ATX mobo easily into this case. The bottom cable management slot is 90% covered but with some smart thinking and minor manipulation very tidy cable routing is still possible.
The stock standard fans are more than enough to keep things cool inside. Check below for specs but, with nothing but stock case and component cooling, idle temps (in Celsius) inside the case are: CPU 33deg, mobo 30deg, GPU 26deg, HDD (x3) 25-27deg. Under load these temps rise by 5deg+- In summer I expect temps to rise overall 10deg+-
Overall: 9/10

Cons: The only thing I had issues with was the HDD tray leaving little room for the SATA + power connections with little clearance once the RH side is back on.
The chassis also got in the way of middle HDD SATA cable so I had to use a 90deg connection which then interfered with the connections to the bottom HDD. You can move the whole HDD setup forward to avoid this but then the HDDs sit too far forward in the case.
The only issue I had at all with this case so not enough to drop an egg for.

The chassis also made connecting the mobo SATA difficult but that is not the fault of the case as the mobo is XL-ATX and it is to be expected that you will need to shuffle and manipulate.

5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased!

Pros: Well constructed case. Great-looking design.

Cons: Top CD drive bay is obstructed by switches located on top of the case.

Other Thoughts: No surprises. Other than the cons I mentioned, everything else is just as it is described. I would buy this case again.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Nice looking from the outside. Nice looking on the inside for that matter.
USB 3.0 and 3.0 to 2.0 compatible
Long internal cables.
Panel covering top connectors.

Cons: 1.) Standard SATA CD-ROM drive doesn't fit in top 5 1/4" Bay without seriously prying the power/reset button connectors back and even they they push very hard against the CD-ROM.

2.) Hard drive rack is very flimsy and needs to be contorted to fit to where all thumb screws line up.

3.) Proprietary hard drive screws specifically for this case. And they only give you enough for two hard drives. If you are willing to steal some from the two hard drives you can make 3 drives work.

4.) Only room for 3 conventional hard drives. For supposedly being a "High end" case I can't believe I can't do my RAID 10 in this case. (which requires 4 hard drives).

5.) (last hard drive complaint) Does not allow for screwing in hard drives. The proprietary screws use rubber grommets which allow the hard drive to "sit" in the hard drive rack with a metal plate keeping them from rolling out of the bay however they slide when moving PC or plugging cables in.

Other Thoughts: 6.) Case comes with 140mm front fan with proprietary filter. (that bows out bad because their screws are in the way.) When the filter breaks or is no longer effective a standard filter replacement may be difficult.

7.) Hard drive rack gets in the way of using a thicker 38mm fan (that I purchases specifically for this case since it only allows for 2 fans total).

Decent case for $30 to maybe $50 range but not $100+. I wonder if these cheaper designs are part of their "NEW" series they just came out with?

The impression I get is it's the cheapest they could go while still trying to be in the league interesting enthusiasts.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Simple, but very stylish. Is pretty roomy. Like the front panel door to hide connections.

Cons: None for me. I built a budget gaming system, but if you were going with hotter components, might need more fans.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: Not too large, futuristic or flashy. Some may find the 3+1 HD drive bay cage to be limiting in number, but it suits my needs without excess, and definitely provides for any monster video card you might be running with. I also like the top-mounted (and covered) IO port…no more groping down below for an elusive USB slot half hidden in shadow.

Cons: Rather expensive branded accessories if you go down that path. Also, not really a con, but at first I was a bit concerned that only two fans might be lacking, but I really think it will be fine, and in the end I much prefer a quiet system over an icy turbine. I did swap out the 120 mm rear stock fan for an unused Scythe S-Flex I had laying around, and added a ventilated/meshed 5 ½ inch front drive bay cover in the empty third bay to allow for extra airflow directly in line with the CPU cooler. I have the PSU intake fan drawing from the floor vents, maintaining the positive air flow.

Other Thoughts: Went crazy over at Cooler Guys and purchased another $50 worth of Lian Li accessories for extra cable management options and the like. I rarely trade out my cases—this is my first Lian Li and only my second mid-tower, so I didn’t mind paying a bit more to get exactly what I wanted, dressed the way I wanted it.

Is the PC-6 a top-tier, “dream-machine” case? Of course not. It is, however, a simple yet functionally sophisticated, light-weight and roomy, high-quality case that will accommodate several future builds without any problems at all.

4 out of 5 eggsokay

Pros: light!
looks nice.
everything fit.
cool temps.

I'm an engineering student so I needed a powerful computer that was lightweight so I could lug it to and from home during breaks. Originally, I had everything in a Corsair 800D. It was way too heavy and way to big. I bought this case hoping it would still cool everything while being lightweight.

With everything installed it is very light. The fans aren't terribly noisy. I didn't want any plastic bits on the outside that could break off so I love the metal finish. I like that it was easy to take the sides front and top off for installing all of the components. I had room for my hands to connect everything

Cons: However, 3 of the motherboard screw holes didn't line up. It has less than stellar cable management compared to the 800d. There are noticeable gaps in between the front bays and light shines through them. You can't really use the top bay because the wires going to the power button stick out and get in the way, so I had to install the dvd drive in the 2nd bay.

Other Thoughts: Intel Core i7 950 (Bloomfield) 3.06GHZ
Corsair HX750W PSU
Intel DX50SO MOBO
2x 4 GB DDR3
2x 500/4 GB Seagate Hybrid SSD
Cool Master Hyper N520 CPU cooler
ATI All-In-Wonder HD
Samsung 22X DVD burner SH 222AL/BSBE
