This review is from: LIAN LI Black Aluminum PC-C37B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros:

Holds everthing you need to an HTPC and does it well.

Cons:

Just a SMALL complaint :)

Small screws used to fasten the support bar in the middle and to mount HD cage. These screws are SMALL, easy to strip, and lose. I almost lost two not taking my time.

Other Thoughts:

I've already added a review but wanted to update with a big suggestion when outfitting the internals.

Get a modular power supply!

Get a PS that allows you to add only the cables you need to use. I tried to save less then $10.00 dollars and bought a CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX instead of the modular one. Love this PS but putting all the cables in was tricky.

Eliminating a few cables that I don't need would make a very nice clean case install. I only would need one to power the HD and DVD drive. instead I have 4 cables that do nothing but block air flow.

Spend a few dollars more for a modular PS.

One last thing, I got an LG HD-DVD / BluRay recorder as well. It is longer then a normal DVD drive. This also impacted PS and DVD drive installation as then are back to back. Very tight.

I thought I had thought of everything before I purchased my parts. Hope this helps....
