LIAN LI PC-7HB Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs Decent case 01/10/2014

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-7HB Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Lightweight
Top is removable which makes installing large CPU heatsink possible.
Space for running wires behind motherboard

Cons: Mount for only 1 2.5" drive
Wires from top power/USB/audio connectors invade the top 5.25" bay
Limited airflow for all but the top GPU in SLI/CF
Case flexes a bit if not supported correctly while carrying without side panel attached

Other Thoughts: In retrospect, I probably should have gotten a full tower and extended motherboard for what I ultimately tried to put together. However this case is nice for any sane system build.

Using only the 4 screws provided, I managed to mount 2 2.5" SSDs by putting 2 in each SSD diagonally. Then I slid the drives into place; one on top, the other upside down. It's a little sketchy but seems to work fine. I would not do that for rotating media.

MSI Z87-G45 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Pro Gaming with Killer Networking & Sound Blaster Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Everything works.

Cons: I discovered the CPU mount protection cover had become dislodged at some point, and one of the pins was bent. I did my best to bend it back in place using a magnifying glass and needle. Seems to be working just fine though.

The bundled network drivers informed me that my version of Windows (8.1) is not supported. Fortunately I was able to find and download functioning drivers on my phone and transfer to computer via usb.

Some of the contents/images on the initial boot screen are low-resolution and look like a 12-yr-old's first webpage.

Other Thoughts: Correctly detected XMP on G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 1866 9-9-9-24 RAM and works fine.

Using an i7 4770k but have not attempted to overclock yet.

RAID 0 with 2 Samsung EVO 750s works great

3x Radeon R9 290 CF requires a PCIe riser to give middle card adequate cooling.
