This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A55B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros:

Slick, small, and clean inside out, you are probably not going to find another ATX case like this one. Entire case is made with shiny brushed aluminum, which makes it extremely light but still retains structural integrity. Layout is fully optimize in order to fit all those component into the space. I was looking for a stylish and sophisticated case, and this is it.

Cons:

There is only so much stuffs you can put in so little space, there is definitely a thermal ceiling with just one exhaust and one intake fan. I have a 78w CPU and a 110w GPU and the case gets pretty warm in full load. Your combine TDP probably shouldn't exceed 250w to play it safe. The power supply exhaust is also plain stupid, make sure your gpu doesn't spill too much heat into the case, beacuse the PSU will suck the heat in and trap it between the front cover. Also the w

Other Thoughts:

For those who consider replacing the fans, you must buy fans with 140mm mounts. Many of the 140mm fans on the market actually uses 120mm mount, watch out. The stock fans are not bad, they are decent at 1000rpm, default setting, and I ran mine at 750rpm and they are quiet. They don't run silent, but quiet is good enough for my main machine.
