4 out of 5 eggs Tis a nice case indeed 09/22/2008

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-V2010B Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros:

My previous Lian-Li's were slide open cases. This new lever-type way of opening the case is nice as it reduces the number of thumbscrews (2 to 1) and that awful aluminum on aluminum screech. However, it does make it a tad more difficult to close because you have to spend more time to align the side panel right. The memory/chipset cooling fan on the support bar is a nice addition and as always the graphics card support gives added peace-of-mind. This case is also huge; there are 8 (that's right EIGHT) PCI slots, so if you need that extra slot below your last expansion slot for a dual slot whatever, this case can handle it. Due to its massive size and aluminum make, this case can cool better with less fans. (Other Thoughts)

Cons:

When the box arrived, there was a hole in it. Like a fist sized hole. The right side panel was damaged at the hinge-part and could not be closed properly; but it was an easy fix: break out the screwdriver, loosen up the screw so then opening is bigger and then it closes fine.

THERE IS NO 5.25->3.5 ADAPTER. Sadly because this is Lian-Li's relatively new line of computer cases (V-2xxx series), there is no matching adapter yet. The front bezels on these new ones are vented versus the old versions where it was solid. This may not be a big deal for some, but I love my fan controller.

Other Thoughts:

My previous case was a CM690 with 6*120mm + 1*80mm fan. All 120mm fans pushed around 50CFM. My CPU (Q6600 G0 Stock) idle temps were around 32-34C (Stock Intel HS.) My Graphics (8800GT Oc'ed 640mhz) idled at 45C. The hard drives ranged from 28-32C.

The Lian-Li does just about the same with one lower-front 140mm and one upper-rear 120mm. My CPU now idles at about 36-38C; Graphics at 48-49C; HDs at 29-36C. Bear in mind the Lian-Li only has 2 fans, vs. my previous CM690 with 7 fans.
