Lian li Quality! 10/30/2007
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A05B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Excellent build quality, very quiet (with very good air flow),
easy access to all areas.
Either the manual for my abit IP35 pro has the wrong pin numbers for the HD audio Front panel connector, or the manual for this case does. Doesn't matter the functions match up, just not the numbers.
Be sure to use the HD audio connector if your mobo requires it, the AC97 plug can do damage.
This is my second build using a Lian Li case, and I am very pleased with this case.
My focus for this build was a QUIET PC with HTPC abilities and performance (not into gaming, which made it much easier to choose a video card).
If you want quiet from this case, you need only find a quiet PSU, (I chose the Corsair HX 620) and a good CPU HSF that'll let you keep the fan slow, and you will have a very quiet PC (a non blow torch CPU helps).
I installed My PSU right side up, (fan on bottom) which leaves plenty of room for the fan to suck air.
I have 3 Hard drives (1 36GB Raptor for OS, 2 WD 500GB RE drives RAID 1 for storage) and the front fan has plenty of flow to keep the drives & system cool.
E6850 CPU, TT V1 HSF, Abit IP35 Pro, 4GB G.Skill PC2 5300 CL4, MSI 8500GT with HDMI and passive HS, LiteOn SATA DVD burner, will add LG BR/HD-DVD reader later, Vista Ultimate.
