5 out of 5 eggs Best Case to Date (IMHO) 09/04/2013

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A76 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros:

All Aluminum Construction
Nice Spacious Layout
All Black
Clean Look / Looks even better in person
Side Panels Are Thick Enough (many say too thin, I disagree, or maybe lian li thicken them up because mine do not feel flimsy or thin)
11 Expansion Slots
Side Positioned HDD are better than front to back with the additional cages needed

Cons:

1) Needs additional hooks on back side for better cable management
2) Rubber Grommets fall out when running cables
3) Needs hooks or screw holes to accept (3) x 140mm fans on back side of HDD Cage Tower or (4) x 120mm fans. [ I solved this by zip tieing (4) 120 mm fans together and then zip tieing the the top fan to the Optical Drive slot openings - for push / pull HDD configuration

Other Thoughts:

I am very particular about my cases, I am looking for a clean look with quality construction and a good layout.

Prior to settling on this case I owned

Thermaltake Kandalf (1 Year) (the doors were stupid and blocked air flow, disliked the front to back HDD = pain to swap + wires in sight)

Cooler Master Stacker 810 (3 Years) (Loved Dual Exhaust, Good Size, Wished it was all Aluminum, had to paint the interior, Quality Construction, HDD Cage suffers similar to TT. Only reason had to upgrade is because not enough expansion slots and no ability for slot 7 to have a hang over card

Rosewill BLACKHAWK-ULTRA (2 Days) - Ugly in person, Cheap plastic, so so construction, a lower level case all around (suggest spending a little extra money for something better)

Corsair 900D (1 Week) The Beast (Very Nice with Some issues)
1) Awesomely Large, Heavy, Looks like Full Aluminum/ metal Construction but its not) (Sides of the front intake and where the front filter snap into (are plastic) (Although hidden still disappointing)
2) placing an optical drive or the like within the case destroys the look
3) too many airflow paths all conflicting
4) if you have a Evga 4 Way Sli Motherboard and using slot 7 with a VGA using 3 slots because of cooling (you cant because it hits the upright PSU regardless of PSU slot (the final straw for me)
I wanted to love this case but just couldn't
