4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Server Case

Pros: I just got this case today. I can tell you it's no larger than previous Lian-Li Full tower cases. I do miss the rolling wheels on my old Lian Li v2000, but this model is worth it.

12 Hard Drive slots on the front with 3 x 140mm fans (the v2000 has them stacked at the bottom 6x6 (with one fan), and the second row of drives tend to get very hot. Having all of the drives in the front will cause less drive failures due to better air flow. I've lost 4 drives recently due to various reasons, but this better air flow should keep my new drives working better.

Cons: The Fan Filters do suck pretty bad... but just like another reviewer said... easy fix. I put 4 eggs instead of 5 due to the fact you have to go through doing this.... took me... 15 minutes... but still they should have figured this out at the factory, and changed the design. (take your filters off and put them on the other side of the metal holes, you have to lock them in, so they are not easily removed ... but i tend to use an air compressor anyways on these to clean them out from time to time anyways... so works for me.

Other Thoughts: For the price... especially since it's on sale right now... I would go for it.... if you need to run 12+ hard drives and want to make sure they stay cool.

It actually runs quieter than my desktop after fixing the front fan filters (at first boot they made a lot of noise... had to immediately fix that.... thus having to not give this 5 star review.

The front Optical drive bezel broke easily.... but i have a black DVD drive anyways (only used for installing Centos Linux anyways...or the occasional Parted Magic or memtest, so no big deal there.... looks fine.

Case runs very silent even with full power to the fans (as far as I'm concerned).... i want full air flow.... and again it's quieter than my desktop (which has water cooling)

If you are a person looking for a case where you can run 12+ hard drives, and keep them very well cooled to avoid failure, then this is for you....

I thought it was going to be an ugly case from the pictures (i prefer rounded edges).... but it's actually pretty aesthetically pleasing in person.

If you have bought previous Lian Li cases and know what to expect.... this one is opposite from their older designs (motherboard sits on the right side now, instead of the left).... but i love this case and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a "server" case and not a desktop.... look elsewhere for that.... but perfect for my needs. Hope this helps.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Tower...Cheap fans

Pros: The Tower is very large but for a great reason. The space available to expand multiple devices on any size motherboard is really nice. Plenty of vents to place 80 - 140mm fans. Aluminum casing, must I say more.

Cons: - Very loud but I get used to it.
-A pain to keep clean
- The tower has trouble with the media drives using the face plate properly. Also, now 6th months in and the three 140mm fans that came pre-installed on the front panel suddenly became damaged after the blades got caught on the mesh protector to collect dust. I took hours meticulously building this tower with the utmost care the the easiest installation is the front panel (comes pre-installed on the case with the fans placed out of the box. In other words, Now I have to figure out how to claim on the warranty :(

Other Thoughts: Otherwise, I enjoy this Computer Case and it has given me so many advan

2 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: This thing is big enough to have an SLI setup with some clean cable management. The case has a sleek look that I really like as well.

Cons: Shaky. The fans vibrate the case which cases a vibrating noise that is quite annoying. It appears to be happening interchangeably on the pre-installed fans, and on the fans that I installed on the top of the case.

The top extra fan slot on the side of the case is much too high. I cannot fit a fan in there due to the radiator on the CPU water cooler.

The panels for the optional extra fan slots were tightened in so tight that I had to use a pair of pliers in conjunction with a screw driver to loosen them without stripping the screws any further. I have a fair amount of building computers as well as doing a ton of handy man work - so I know how to get a screw out, and this was tough.

Other Thoughts: Really wish it didn't vibrate/shake from the fans.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware, don't buy this

Pros: Good space, the hd rack is kinda clever.

Cons: I've own 5 Lian Li cases and I've been in love of all of them, very good quality all over the years, but in this case the really got cheap with the quality, the front panel falls off really easily, it has 3 front fans which started rattling the next day I build my pc and when I open the front pannel and took off the fans panel (8 screws) I discovered the three of them lost a blade, awful quality now I am stuck with a rattling desktop instead of a silent one. Quality is bad all over the inside, very thin metal, I am really dissapointed of Lian Li's quality I would like to return it if it is possible... not sure though.

4 out of 5 eggsMixed Feeling

Pros: more cost effective than similar former version PC-Z70. However, please continue to review the cons.

Cons: In promotion, $50 lower cost than Z70. However, missing the items as follows:
1. 2x top fans
2. mesh covers if fans are installed later
3. HDD hot swappable adapters
4. 4 nice metal stands become now 4 rubber ones.

Perhaps A76 is more like Z70 in terms of the front panel. Thus the cost saving is even reduced to ~ $15 for the missing items above.

Other Thoughts: Others complained about tin panels of Lian-Li. Although the thickness may be reduced, it is negligible. Squeezing noise when the panel is pressed is from friction between panel and 5.25" Bay cover or from hinges in A76 (I guess).

I could be just breakeven considering CPI. If you get extra rebate by end of March, you would be more comfortable of the product.

5 out of 5 eggsInteresting mix of features

Pros: Room. Oh my, the room. It makes an ATX board look like a MATX. Not to mention room for video cards - my 280X is 12 inches long and it still has three inches to the hard drive cage. If you feel claustrophobic in here, you may have a problem. If you run out of hard drive space, you really have a problem.

The black anodized finish exudes a clean beautiful look. No gaudiness here. Even the DVD drive is hidden.

The included organizer for leftover hardware is a nice touch.

Great airflow. The front 140mm fans aren't quiet to say the least but their wires will reach the mainboard so I can use the q-fan feature to slow them down to under 600 rpm. I used one Y-cable to run two from one header as the board only had two controllable headers up there. When at full speed they change out the air in a hurry. Plus, they come with filters.

The fully rubber isolated hard drive mounting setup is very effective at cutting the noise from my Velociraptor drive.

Video card support is always welcome.

Cons: Biggest flaw with this case is the side panel design. They use multiple tabs top and bottom that have to all slide in at the same time; unfortunately being an aluminum panel big enough to use as a spare barn door from time to time, it doesn't stay flat and can be a real pain to get all eight tabs in at the same time. This is far harder on the left panel once wires are in because they will push the panel out just enough to make it infuriating. If I take that panel off, I have to lay the case on my bed to gently push with a knee and elbow to keep the panel flat enough to reassemble. My $50 Antec case was far easier to put the panels on because of its front-hinging swinging design.

The fan filters are a welcome inclusion but they're a hair's width from the fan blades. About two weeks after assembly, two filter screens lost their flatness just a tiny bit and suddenly I had scraping noises from them contacting the fan blades. Fortunately, this was an easy fix. The grommets that hold the fans to the case frame can slide on their screws; so if those are pushed down to the fan body, fans installed, and afterwards the three filters simultaneously twisted into place from the front of the case, there will be about 4mm of new space to keep them off the blades. Plus they're easier to clean because that darn left panel won't have to be removed to remove them (the front cosmetic panel pops right off).

Wire management. You'll have to get creative although the excess room will help. Those three grommets in the motherboard tray will pop out every time you push a wire through, not to mention every time you put on the left panel and it pushes gently against all the wires, and you'll be tempted to toss them. Tip - you can insert them from the back side and they'll pop out far less often.

Fingerprints. It'll be as bad as a brushed stainless steel fridge.

Hard drive cage only removable after drilling out some rivets.

Size can be a con, from trying to fit it next to my desk, to the comments like if I was working for NASA now to need a case that big. Another tip - if you don't have one, order up an extension for your 8-pin CPU power plug on the top of the mainboard. It's only a couple bucks.

The filter under the power supply is just odd. I don't see that getting a whole lot of use.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a good case. Maybe not so much if you take it apart a lot due to those darn panel tabs and propensity for fingerprints, but for a build that's rarely disassembled, it's fine. It stays cool, looks great like any Lian Li, and does the job. I wouldn't pay the $170 it was originally, mostly thanks to other more friendly cases to work with for that price, but for roughly $125 I paid it was worth it, especially for the room.

4 out of 5 eggsREALLY BIG CASE

Pros: Giant case. I mean big. Has space for everything and looks very nice doing it. No frills . This is not the case for someone who wants something that looks blingy. This is a case for a professional workstation. It will easily fit everything you put into it. Dual Dual Video cards in SLI with a water cooler and extra fans for good measure. Liked the hard drive sliders , simple and effective. plenty of room and rubberized slots for behind the board cable management.

Cons: for the size and general build quality of the case I would have expected noise dampening material. Can easily be added by a good builder but should have been included. This is Pro case for a workstation build and that would have made it perfect. also the top panel slider for usb slots seemed a little bit of an afterthought and could have been done better but I'm nitpicking here.

Other Thoughts: Overall this fit the bill for the workstations we build and would definitely purchase again

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome case.

Pros: This case is spacious, plenty of room for everything. I can't believe how light it is for the size. It is built to quality I have only seen provided by Lian Li. Easy setup with no need to read the instructions. Plenty of air flow. Hard drives slide into place easily. Front usb/audio cables have enough length to wire them however you want without having them in the way.

Cons: DOESN'T INCLUDE the air filters for the side panel leaving add-on fans exposed. What a pain. It wouldn't be such a big deal if the part was easily available, but I cant seem to find a reputable distributor in the US for it (part PT-AF-14-1B).

Other Thoughts: Lian Li chassis never disappoint. I have used at least 7 different models over the years and have nothing but great experiences. They don't overload the chassis with features and gimmicks. People with complaints probably didn't take a close enough look of the case features.

4 out of 5 eggsHUGE case

Pros: absolutely huge case, can use basically any motherboard you can find, looks very good, is extremely quiet, plenty of cooling options, almost everything is tool less.

Cons: cable guards like to pop out while threading cable through them, disc drive cover popped off while taking it out of the package and one of the fans had also popped off during shipped (easily fixed though just popped the fan back in)

Other Thoughts: this is the second lian-li case i have used and i am very satisfied with them both. excellent build quality is prevalent in their cases. i didnt realize just how good the finish was until i got this case out of the package it has kind of a brushed finish to it which makes it look very professional. I really enjoy how this case is multi-purpose you can really use this case for gaming, business, or server applications (it does support HPTX mobos) and can really fit whatever you want into it. I ordered extra fans for the top and side, really thinking about going for a corsair h100 to replace the top fans at some point. Got this beast for $112 after the 30% promo code and a $30 gift card. Love Lian-Li cases and will continue to buy them.
