Most Favorable Review

I love this case it's a good size imo

LIAN LI TU150 Aluminium  tempered glass  ITX case -Silver Color -TU150WA
LIAN LI TU150 Aluminium tempered glass ITX case -Silver Color -TU150WA

Pros: Small Has a handle which i use more than I expected Thermals are better than expected Toolless makes working on it very easy Attic is nice for cable managment Looks awesome imo The blacked out area on side pannel keeps the cable managment looking very clean Magnetic handle is nice and feels good in hand I thought it was easy to work in

Cons: Thermals could be better if they did my below suggestion they couldve added a slot for another 120 fan in the top If the case was made a hair longer the ssd coulve been moved to a spot on the bottom front of the case and the 3.5 coulve been put where the ssd is for better cable managment. Because it needs a sff psu the attic is nice but unless you do custom cables is still limiting but can still be made to look nice. I dont love the feet they use on this case but that's just me nitpicking If you use a 2.5 or 3 bay gpu with a mini itx you cant really fit 120 fans nicely unless you get slims If you get the dtx mobo no fan support in the bottom at all A custom gpu mount from the top or something that could mount to the radiator itself could make water cooling support better but I dont water cool so....

Overall Review: All in all I think this case is amazing I highly recommend it for gamers and or people who move their tower around. I've considered buying a second one and modding it with some of my mods in the cons section to make thermals and cable managment better but the cons on this case for me were def not enough to stop me from buying. While gaming I saw max temps of 75 c with the stock wraith prism cooler amd gives you and 2 lian li bora digital fans one front 1 back. I'm sure better temps could be acquired with a bigger tower cooler or aio and fans in the bottom maybe a blower style gpu keeping less hot air in the case could help to but I dont think any of it is necessary.

Pros: Very good at its job

Overall Review: this thing is one massive so be prepared if you buy it. i new it was gonna be big and i was still shocked and i didnt realize i had to pull our my motherboard to install it but no big deal worth it since my six core at 3.8 ghz is running at 16 c at idle and around 28 under load.
