5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

Pros: Case is an absolute beast. My huge hands have never known luxury such as this. Extra-Long Thumbscrews to hold to motherboard to the posts? I had never even considered such a thing possible!!

The thing is absolutely gigantic, yet somehow manages to weigh under 15 pounds. Even at that weight, it's real sturdy, owing to solid construction and a removable strut running up the outside wall.

As far as cable management, I'm not one to put much effort into it, but I didn't even need to here. Combined with a nice modular power supply, I've got 4 drives in it, and the thing feels empty. Everything is nice and accessible despite my sloppy organization, though I did have to re-route the power button/audio jack/led cables from the front. Not a huge issue at all.

It's also a wind tunnel, and the removable air filters are awesome. Was thinking about doing water cooling, but I think stock cooling will be just fine in this case. Decently quiet as well, but I don't generally care about how much noise my machine makes, so don't take my word for it.

Lastly, it's totally beautiful. If you want a perfect black monolith, this is the case you need. Great finish too, It's totally great looking. Considering how gaudy and awful

Cons: The rubber grommets for running cables through the back are a little janky, and popped out too easily when feeding cords through, but I didn't even end up needing them to be honest.

The instructions that come with it are also pretty bad... most of it you can figure out yourself, but the pictures are too tiny to show anything meaningful. They include some brackets you can use to support a heavy video card (which mine is) by attaching them to the strut running up the side, but I have no idea if I'm using it correctly, and I couldn't find any usable documentation on the feature online. I *think* I've got it working, but I just can't be sure... Wish I could consult the instructions, but alas.

The converter that allows you to plug your front usb 3.0 ports into a 2.0 slot on the mobo was definitely not up to par. Pulled one of the wires out just doing a test fit. My mobo has a 3.0 port on it, but if yours doesn't and you want to use all 4 (!) front usb ports, you should probably by the converter yourself.

Over all, none of these issues detract from the fact that this is hands down the coolest case I have ever own. It'd be Foolish to let any of that stop you from getting this as soon as you can!

Other Thoughts: Wish I could have ordered the sata hotswap backplane to go with it; not that I need that functionality but it could've been nice for cable management. Oh well.

It's also way bigger than I imagined it would be, but that's my bad for not looking at the measurements. Even so, still very, very happy with it.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Big, looks pro, 11 expansion slots

Cons: cant remove hdd cages, for this size two more fans could be added to the side panel.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid and precise fit

Pros: Large enough to fit all components and leaving ample room to work.
A nice solid feel, the parts are square and straight and components fit cleaner than cheaper cases I have used in the past.
Plenty of rubber gaskets for fans, and other moving parts.
It's a good looking case without all the pointless lights.

Cons: I received the package with a broken disc drive flap cover and a fan was seized. Extreme cold probably brittled the plastic. I emailed Lian Li and was immediately sent replacement parts for free.

Other Thoughts: I've always fell into the, "cases don't matter," group and always went the cheapest route. Old rattling things that seemed to fit oddly for some cards. I'm going to using this case for likely over a decade so I consider this a strong investment.

5 out of 5 eggsJust Right for an XL-ATX board

Pros: Plenty of room. Top panel was a perfect fit for a large water cooled set-up. Love the thumb screws for most everything. There's room behind the motherboard tray for hiding most of the wiring. Like the washable filter below the bottom panel. The DVD/CD door worked great. Didn't need any extensions for all my wiring.

Cons: Included top panel fan screens are very thin and will dent easily, the I/O sliding door on top needs the screws backed off 1/2 turn for it to slide smoothly. I understand it's a server case accommodating plenty of drives however I was shocked the large cage is riveted in, I would taken an egg for that but you can easily drill the rivets out to increase airflow and wasn't needed for my ssd.

Other Thoughts: Some of the bigger power supplies have large braided wires and are a tight fit behind the MB tray. I own a five year old LIAN LI mid-tower so I knew what to expect and am satisfied with my purchase. And love the black anodized finish.

4 out of 5 eggsBig, Huge Even

Pros: It's got enough room to hold whatever you want, and I can add stuff for years. Some argued it was flimsy. Granted, this was my first PC build; however, it seemed pretty solid to me. Not disappointed in build quality at all.

Cons: Size...some of the stock case fans needed extensions to reach headers. As some have stated cable management isn't really there. I would not recommend a window for the case; however, it looks great.

Other Thoughts: It's pretty large. Definitely takes up some real estate in the room but light...strangely light for its size.

5 out of 5 eggsMovin on up

Pros: Space is king, not the kind of space you could install a hot tub and a sauna, but plenty for those long video cards and other hoggish components - Internal watercooling loop(s) - no issues here, 3 X 140's up front, with some effort the drive cages can be removed and viola! space for days.

Build quality - Perfect, Lian Li has not disappointed with this budget server chassis, the pain on the inside is solid, and no over-spray can be seen. All surfaces appear to be fully painted and no thin spots visible either. The GFX support bar once configured properly gives you some piece of mind when you have those jumbo fatty's installed and pumping out SLI or Crossfire. The exterior is all anodized aluminum, and it's sleek, sexy, looks like a black on black tuxedo at a fancy dinner party, just classy.

Cons: Since this was exactly what I needed for this new build, I can find no Cons with this product. I did however do some research before I bought it so I knew what to expect.

Some of these boneheads taking eggs away because their public school education failed them is appalling, to me.

Other Thoughts: I like apples and cheese, I dunno something about how the crunchy crisp apple breaks up the creamy salty cheese. One of the most wonderful snacks in the world.

4 out of 5 eggsBeautifully crafted but thin

Pros: - very nicely built: precise and smooth metal craft
- highly efficient spacing: 12 hdd bays, 3 of them can take 2.5‘ ssd without cage.
I don't know why other case manufacturers tend to waste space by optical driver bays and stupid apartments.
- fans are so quite that after closing the case I have to put my ears on the case to notice any sound.
- nice toolbox and instruction.

Cons: back board is so thin that when I attach my mother board to it I can feel it bend. It cannot support much weight on it.
I'm glad I didn't buy a full copper cpu cooler or motherboard will bend to break sooner or later.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Full Tower Case

Pros: This Full Tower case is very well constructed and improves upon Lian-Li's previous Full Tower cases. It includes two USB 3.0 ports on the top, as well as two USB 2.0 ports, and headphone jacks. They're spaced appropriately to allow the usage of multiple, or even all ports simultaneously.

The internal drive bays allow for as many as 12 hard drives. Three of those 12 also have mounting holes for SSDs. However, I found enough parts included to mount two SSDs, not three. It still allows for positioning however. All of the internal bays use anti-vibration rubber grommets.

This case also is made to fit a water cooling radiator in the top without it getting in the way if you choose to use water cooling.

Cons: It only has two external drive bays. It could really use a third.

Other Thoughts: There are three front fans, and they are not wired together from the factory, so you will need at least one Y-cable. The one I used is a StarTech 6", (Newegg item # N82E16812200855). That takes care of two fans and then the third I hooked up to a separate fan connector on the motherboard.

I also recommend ordering one or two 24" SATA III cables since the ones that come with motherboards don't reach the 5.25" external drive bays.

I would like to see Lian-Li make the panel on top for the USB ports, etc. be modular for all of their cases and allow consumers to purchase them so the consumer could get the ports they want.

5 out of 5 eggsA triumph of aesthetic and function

Pros: Colossal interior - Very easy to work with, and will easily accommodate the largest GPUs

Beautifully constructed - The all aluminum fabrication provides fantastic rigidity and is wonderfully lightweight, making handling such a large case incredibly easy.

Massive airflow - The case comes with three 140mm front fans and a rear 120mm fan, plus intakes on the bottom, the left side, and top. the front and bottom intakes are each filtered. Internal airflow is enhanced by the extremely open interior of the case.

Drive baby, drive - The case will accommodate 12 3.5" drives, or 8 3.5" drives and 3 2.5" drives. Drive installation is wonderfully simple, and even more so if optional Lian Li drive back planes are installed (these are not included with the case). Toolless optical drive installation is also supported.

Rad cooling support - The top air intakes will accommodate a standard 2x120 rad kit with no modifications needed.

Beautiful inside and out - Really, photos / videos of this case don't do it justice... The case interior is all black, and the brushed anodized exterior is just gorgeous, and the case's elegant, minimalist design play perfectly to aluminum's inherent aesthetic strengths. Seriously, this case belongs in a modern art exhibit.

Cons: Not many...

The drive cage is not (easily) removable. If you want to take the case out (possibly necessary if you want to mount a front 3x140 rad cooler) you'll have to drill some pop rivets.

Cable runs may be a bit tight - depending on your motherboard, you may find the center back panel cable conduit getting a little crowded. Not a big deal, but just plan accordingly.

You may need an EATX power cable extension - Because of the case size and the placement of the PS mount at the bottom of the case, it's a bit of a haul to get to the EATX ports if your MB mounts them at the top (which I think is standard placement for them?). My PS cables made it, but just. Again, not a big problem, but be prepared just in case.

Other Thoughts: A beautiful, highly functional case.

One criticism I've seen of this case is that it does not readily support multi-rad cooling installations. I reflecting on this, I can see Lian Li's design philosophy - this case is all about disk drives. With 12 drive bays, there is a strong emphasis placed on convective cooling - hence the use of three 140mm fans placed directly adjacent to the drive bay. A rad cooler mount is available at the top of the case, but clearly Lian Li wanted to balance the availability of both heat transfer methods. The A75 excels at multi-drive installation support, and is designed and built for this.

Finally, let me just say (again) how ridiculously beautiful this case is... It's really the Eams chair or Minotti table of the PC case world.

A fantastic, beautiful work of engineering - highly recommended!

5 out of 5 eggsSlick and Elegant Case

Pros: - Beautiful minimalist case design

- Lightweight

- Spacious interior made installation of components a breeze

- Aluminum faceplate that hides optical drive to ensure the case looks uniform

- Great cooling with options to add two more on top and on the side

Cons: None really. The only unfortunate thing was that the graphics card holder didn't quite work with my HIS IceQ 6970. I attribute that to the unique design of the cooler, not the case.

Other Thoughts: This is my first Lian Li case and I must say that the quality is well worth the money. My old case, a Thermaltake Xaser III, was no longer as asthetically pleasing as it was when I first bought it. I felt the case was a bit too "busy," and heavy. This Lian Li case eliminates all the fluff but retains all the features that really matter. I love this black monolith of awesomeness.
