Cons: If you want to put fans on the bottom (140s) they will get really close to the motherboard and I had a hard time putting in my usb cable, just a thought for anybody considering doing the same.
Overall Review: Great airflow, comes with 3 fans, and easy to build in!
Pros: -Airflow (obviously)
-Small size (could be a con for some, but if so probably looking elsewhere)
-Great customer service (read on for more)
-Price is fair for what is included
Cons: -Shipped with "old" side panel
-140mm fans can be tight with full ATX motherboard
-some screws shipped overtightened and peeled paint
Overall Review: Overall, a fantastic compact ATX case where airflow is superb. I was shipped the "old" side panel with the less dense holes but one quick note to Lian Li on their website and I was shipped a new panel free of charge in 7 days from an estimated 9 to 14 days. I run an air-cooled build so I can't vouch for radiator ease of installation, but the mounting rails are there. I came from a Corsair 680x, so a similar dual chamber case, but I instantly fell in love with this case for its superior airflow, small size, and reasonable price. Cable management is as easy as it gets because of the dual chamber design, and with ATX PSU and Mobo support, carrying over parts from an older build is finally possible here. Cannot recommend this case enough!
Pros: AirFlow, Cable Management, ease of use, Modular Panels
Cons: None So Far
Overall Review: What a huge upgrade over the InWin 101 I was using. Been waiting for a revised version of the 011 Mini was a huge fan of the modular build. Cannot go wrong here?!
Pros: -Good temperatures
-Space for plenty of fans
-Lots of cable management space in the back
Cons: -USB 3.0 header cable is pretty rigid. I wasn't able to sandwich my bottom 140mm fans together due to the space needed to bend the cable back 180° to the bottom cable slot below the motherboard. Not a big deal, as I might buy a 90° adapter in the near future to help with that.
Overall Review: I was impressed with the customization of the case. This is my 2nd Lian Li case. Works for my build, also looks great!
Pros: Aside from the manufacturing issues, like having to notify Lian Li to send me the updated higher airflow side panel (thanks so much to the other reviewer here that mentioned that, I would have never realized) and one of the USB ports on top that didn't work, Lian Li provides excellent no frills support and fast delivery for replacement parts.
I was able to fit an AIO for my CPU AND another AIO for my RTX 3080, BOTH on push/pull configuration! Please note that I have a set of crucial ballistic non RGB memory, so the clearance for the top mounted AIO had no issues, but if you have a RAM set like the corsair vengeance RGB that sticks further out, you would likely need to get the AIO extender brackets to be able to mount it closer towards the glass and away from the memory.
All in all, very happy and impressed with this case and airflow is top notch. I have fans covering all areas that I can, and the ones included are very functional and as quiet as all my Noctuas.
Cons: Few quality control issues, thankfully great no frills customer support and fast replacement delivery.
Overall Review: 100%
Pros: -Easy to build in
-Lots of ways to configure
Cons: The feet need to be taller
Overall Review: I upgraded my gpu to an Asrock 6900xt and could only run my aio rad top mounted with this gpu in my 4000D airflow. So I wanted a case with the ability to side mount the aio and airflow from the bottom but not a gigantic case either. So I found this Air Mini plus the fact I could keep my ATX PSU instead of buying a SFX PSU. So now my pc runs cooler with the gpu mounted vertically and aio side mounted for my overclocked 10850k.
The case is easy to work in and makes cable management easy. The materials and accessories feel of high quality. This was my first Lian Li case and I would highly recommend it!!
Pros: The case came with 3 fans and lots of room inside. It also had screws in the back which at first I thought they would look ugly popping out but you barely notice them plus it makes it so much easier to open different parts of the case.
Cons: It was bigger than I expected but I shouldve looked at the measurements. Really nothing bad to say. Some other reviews received their case damaged but mine was in perfect condition.
Overall Review: If its your first time building I would go with a simple case. But overall my pc turned out great!
Pros: Great case in terms of looks, thermals, and building in. Lots of room for cable management in the back of the case and has plenty of room for storage expansion with 2.5 ssds. The HDD cage is nice for mass storage.
Cons: With a front mounted radiator with tubes down, 3 120mm fans or 2 140mm fans will not fit in the top (the EPS cables prevent the 140mm fans from fitting). 2 140mm fans will not fit in the bottom. But this could have been prevented if I looked at the dimensions a little closer.
Overall Review: Overall this is an amazing case and I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a build to sit on your desk without taking up too much room. The smaller than traditional mid tower size makes it not an eye sore. Also the ability to add a vertical gpu mount is nice.
