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.

1 out of 5 eggsLian Li PC-A75 follow-up

Pros: 2 usb 3.0 connections, and its really large, other than that I have absolutely no recommendation for this case.

Cons: all 3 fans on the front of the case broke fan blades within 2 weeks.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CASE TO ANYONE!!!

Other Thoughts: Buy something other than Lian Li.

3 out of 5 eggsLian Li PC-A75X

Pros: It is really big and spacious. if you are looking for a light weight and big case, this one certainly fits the bill. for years I have heard that Lian Li was the cream of the crop in computer cases but have never been able to make myself bite the bullet and spend the extra money. I finally decided to go for it and bought this case. the case itself is really nice, but no fans in top or side come with it so by the time I bought the fans for it there was another $100 in the mix which made the case really really expensive. the 2 best things about the case are that the cable for USB 3.0 that plugs into MB actually has 2 ports on front/top of case which has a little cover you can close when not needed, very nice. and the other nice thing is there is plenty of room, you could almost set up a tent in there and camp out :)

Cons: As is the case is a bit more expensive than what I have been building systems with, which I usually use AZZA Solano 1000R Black / Red Japanese SECC Steel/Metal mesh in front MicroATX/ATX/Full ATX Computer Case. I knew that up front, what I didn't realize was that there were no fans included for top and side which as I stated earlier added another $100 to the deal. also there is only 1 cd/dvd space available. there is a 2nd tray under the 1 tray but in order to put something there rivets will have to be drilled out. currently awaiting email from Lian Li asking if this is there intent so I can put my 2nd dvd/cd in.

Other Thoughts: will not buy another Lian Li in the future. curiosity has been satisfied and I will go back to AZZA or something along those lines in the future.

Pros: Well built and simple to configure.

Cons: It's too pretty?

Other Thoughts: Well built and well thought out, another excellent lian li product, cable management gromets are a bit chintzy, but it still looks great without them.

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.
