4 out of 5 eggs Lighting makes it look not quite so red. 10/27/2011

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-V600FR Red Aluminum MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros:

Looks like a Mac Pro case minus the handles (and huge size). Tons of drive bays. Lightweight. Included fans are actually pretty decent. Plenty of room behind the motherboard tray to conceal wiring for a clean case look. Enough room to install my 5850s without removing the bottom drive bay. All aluminum makes for easy modification, as I'm planning to mount a Corsair H100 to the side panel with Lian Li's spider grills before the build is completely finished. Also being all aluminum assists with cooling as it transfers heat better than steel and plastic does.

Cons:

Under CFL lighting, especially with the 6500K "daylight" bulbs, the red does have a tendacy to appear more pinkish than red. However, under most other lighting, the red is prevalent. While not a huge con, the hot swap bays do not work with the newer Velociraptor drives that do not have the external SATA connectors. Not a huge deal as Im looking to replace my current 300GB drive with some 600GB ones soon which do have the correct connectors.

Other Thoughts:

Would have liked the red to be a bit more prevalent in the case so that it doesnt appear light red in bright lighting. Other than that, if you take your time and put some thought into building a PC around this case, you can put together a very clean build. I'll admit, this build took about twice the time I'd normally spend on building a PC due to the smaller case size, but I was rewarded with a very cool case/cpu/gpu temperatures because of it. Amazingly, cpu temperatures are down from the Silverstone Raven this case replaced. +1 for all aluminum.
