This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A70F USB3.0 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: All I can say is WOW!! This huge full tower case replaced my old Antec Nine Hundred mid tower case and the difference was night and day. I can actually work on my rig now without having to squeeze my hand inside the case. This Lian Li case definitely seems quality made. This was my first Lian Li case. I was a bit concerned about the durability since it's made by aluminum but no problem here so far. Overall, I'm very happy with this case. Purchased it at almost half off after the promo code. Thanks newegg.
Cons: Not enough airflow. Definitely could use more fans on the top panel and maybe even the side panel. Wish this was a clear window side panel. I don't know why companies still bother with the solid window side panel when most buyers will prefer the clear window panel. I was hoping for it to be a much bigger case but coming from a mid tower case, I'm satisfied.
Other Thoughts: It didn't come with a hot girl inside the case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Solid board when it comes to overclocking
-SLI and Crossfire Ready
Cons: -Not as pretty looking as the Sabertooth version.
-Covers PCI slot for soundcard when using 3-Way SLI (1 egg off)
-NOT CREATIVE X-FI CHIP!! (1 egg off) It's very misleading that Asus doesn't clarify the fact that this is not a Creative X-Fi Audio Chip. But they label it as is leading people like myself to think that this is an audio chip from Creative. WRONG!.. This is a Realtek chip that uses Realtek drivers but includes Creative X-Fi Utility Software to work together with the Realtek Chip. There's a reason why they put a sticker on the audio chipset to fool people into thinking this is a Creative X-Fi chip. I'm a big Asus fan but this was a major disappointment for me that they would go this low just to make some extra sales. I've tried the onboard audio from this board and it still sounds junk like any other Realtek Audio Chipset. I decided to put my old Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Chipset which sounds 50 times better.
Other Thoughts: MY GAMING RIG
CPU – AMD FX-4100 @ 4.6GHz
CPU COOLER - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
MOTHERBOARD - Asus Crosshair V 990fx Motherboard
GRAPHICS CARD - Dual Nvidia GTX 275 SLI
SOUND CARD - Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2
PSU - PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W
Cons: Had the card since November of last year but only used it on my Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS 3 times and it's already giving me error and unable to format. My computer can't even detect the card as well...
Other Thoughts: I am never going back to this brand again.READ FULL REVIEW
