4 out of 5 eggsNice workstation/HTPC case

Pros: Compact; not much wasted space. Clean design. Front panel USB 3.0. No external drive bays. Easy disassembly.

Cons: Front panel USB 3.0 connects to rear ports instead of a motherboard header. Many internal cables are way too long. No expansion slot. Chassis fan is not PWM.

Other Thoughts: I like the clean, simple design of this case a lot. It's very compact; yet provides just enough space for some half-decent cooling. My biggest complaint is that there's no expansion slot. Not a huge deal for me since I plan on using the Intel video anyway; but it would have been nice to have the option. It seems like this could have been done within the existing space constraints; certainly if the case were ¼" taller/longer.

Many of the internal cables are ridiculously long. The front panel cables could have been 6" long; they are closer to 16". The SATA power cables could have been 4" long; they are probably 12". I also wish the front panel USB 3.0 went to a motherboard header rather than snaking out of the back of the case to connect to the rear I/O panel.

Also, Lian Li saw fit to include a 3-pin chassis fan along with space for an optional 3-speed fan controller. With PWM fan headers on motherboards commonplace, this seems silly.

So, it's not perfect; but it's still fine ca
