Pros: Amazing AirflowCool RGB LightingEasy Cable ManagementLots of SpaceComes with a Pre-installed Fan Hub
Overall Review: I really liked this case. It was my first time building a PC and this case made it really easy. The case comes with 2 giant rgb fans which is already a plus, because who doesnt love rgb. Also the case provides a pre-installed fan hub which makes it really easy for cable management and rgb synchronization. On top of all of that, the case had amazing airflow that helps keep your system temperatures down. Overall, a great case and highly recommend this case, especially for beginner PC builders.
Pros: - this was rated the best overall case of 2020 by Gamers Nexus, and a Q1 review of 2021 cases released still had this case at the top.
- great airflow
- plenty of top room if you want a top mounted rad
- easy to cable manage
- big rgb fans on the front with an LED button in the front IO
- the PSU basement gives you an easy way to macguyver a graphics card sag preventer(legos)
Cons: - if you want a front mounted rad which is supposed to give better CPU temps, you realistically need to switch out the big front fans that come with the case for smaller fans, or do a bulky push/pull config on your rad. fortunately there's enough room for this even if you have a 3000 series graphics card
Overall Review: - excellent price
- great quality
- no need to go crazy spending 200 on a case that won't be as good as this one
Pros: -Budget price
-Easy to build in
-RBG via case or mobo
Cons: -Meh QC - I know others have commented on this as well. Don't hesitate to RMA if there's something wrong with yours
-Poor front panel (placement + features), although this is kinda to be expected at this price point.
Overall Review: It's a very standard airflow-focused front mesh case. It stands out for 2 main reasons vs its competitors - the 200mm include RGB fans and the pricepoint. I had issues with my first one of these (physical damage - possibly during shipping), but RMAd successfully and later ordered a replacement. If you research this case, you learn that you don't get the full benefit of the 200mm fans in terms of airflow, some of the fan blade area is occluded by the case. Not a big deal in my opinion, my temps were still great. Fans are also nice and quiet.
I used this case in a PC I sold - great value for me and great looks/performance for the client. Win/win in my mine - I recommend.
Pros: Very high quality for a very decent price. Great cable management and back cavity. Very accessible and great overall look.
Cons: The only thing that bothered me was there's no bottom ledge for the tempered glass to rest on when taking it off so you have to be careful that it doesn't fall, other than that which really isn't that big of a deal, no cons.
Overall Review: Overall I think this case is going to be very easy to work with and is going to just look beautiful especially if you're planning on using a lot of RGB. But even without RGB I think this case is just beautiful. Very good quality, very good quality glass also. I will post another video of my finished build at another time.
Pros: -Plenty of room for component installation and cable management
-Included 3pin 5v RGB controller (multiple ports available for future expansion)
-Great case design for airflow and cooling capacity (just as Gamers Nexus said in their review)
-Plenty of great spots to mount RGB strips
Cons: -Mine arrived with one of the 2.5in SSD mounting plates missing (only arrived with one instead of two)
-3.5in hard drive mounting cage is great, unless you want to mount two drives to it, then it's a bit tedious
-Would have liked to be able to mount a 140mm fan as the rear exhaust, instead of just a 120mm fan
-Thicker 240mm AIO liquid coolers (like the ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 240 I have installed) will BARELY fit in this case when mounted at the top (which is the proper placement for them), but they can be made to fit with some creative cable management of the fan cables and CPU power cables that get plugged in at the top of the motherboard
-Glass side panel slides open instead of swinging open on a hinge like other cases
-Airflow from the two 200mm front fans is blocked slightly by the interior front fan mounting brackets
-no included cover for the open section of the power supply shroud at the front of the case (in case you decide NOT to mount a radiator at the front of the case)
Overall Review: -Great budget case design with good airflow
Pros: Highly rated airflow.
Comes with two big RGB fans in the front and a third fan in the back.
Dust filters on the top and bottom.
Cons: Quality control issues. The packaging was damaged but the issues with the product do not seem to match up with the shipping damage.
-Tempered glass side panel has an abrasion or scratch all the way across it.
-Multiple chips in the paint along the top and back of the side panel.
-Abrasions on the Lian Li logo on the bottom front of the case.
-Magnetic dust filter on top has some sort of discoloration.
Overall Review: The case is highly rated for airflow and comes with a good fan setup compared to other cases in the same price range. I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet because I just received it and immediately noticed the quality control issues so I reached out to Lian Li. I'll update the review when they respond.
Pros: Overall good case for the price. Would be a great case if it was at its original msrp. The white color is very bright and screws are done in a silver finish which is a nice touch. Space for cable management is decent. Front fans arent noisy once you control them via the motherboard and tune their curve.
Cons: While the white frame is very bright the front panel doesnt match in color but that's common. This also makes it harder to get other white products that can look good inside the case.
Top mounting a fan over the psu is mostly for looks as at any decent speed is just noisy. Had to keep rear fan in the 600 rpm range just so it wouldn't be loud. Maybe with a sfx psu and adapter brackets it would be of more use. The fan right in front of it is of more use for sure, can ramp up rpm with out any exaggerated noise penalties.
Overall Review: Happy with the case over all, i wouldn't pick it for a custom loop but for most builds it plenty.
Pros: -Let's face it, you are getting it for the 200mm fans. You can lie to everyone else about it, but not to me. They look solid.
-The simple open design works for the budget class
-Comes with all the fans you need on a budget case
-One of the few budget cases where the logo actually has argb
Cons: -TIGHT QUARTERS. 280 rad top mount is expensive Tetris, and requires CAREFUL PLANNING.
-No space for wire management (.75" gets filled very fast with more than the stock amount of fans and any midtier power supply.
-Bottom access paths will conflict with MSI motherboard headers. You will have to plan out your wire running and it may take a few tries to get right.
-Stock hub is not setup for PWM.
-Front fans ARE NOT PWM! This could be an vary by item, but mine have trouble even if I use a PWM hub.
Overall Review: -Just grab the Lancool2 Pro, slap some 200mm fans on it and save yourself a headache. This is a good case, but anything over a budget build will become a rat's nest very quickly.
-Very nice if you can get it for 80 bucks, but do not spend more than that. The hub (unique to this model) will not save you any money as you will likely purchase a PWM hub (because it is 2022).
-Looks Amazing if you take time to plan out everything.
@LIANLI, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A PRO VERSION OF THIS SPECIFIC CASE THAT IS A BIT WIDER AND A BIT LONGER.
