Truly interesting little case

Pros: Small, light, extremely sturdy. GPU cooling is not an issue, just pop open the side of the case and the GPU gets all the fresh air it needs.

Lian-Li cases are riveted together with standard pop-rivets, which can easily be drilled out for disassembly. Great stuff!

Cons: No options to mount a 3.5" HD. There's plenty of room, if you don't install a discrete graphics card, but they didn't include the hardware. However, it has room for three 2.5" drives.

My only criticism is that the space between the SFX PSU and mobo is needlessly small, only 60mm. They could easily have moved the PSU further outboard, away from the PSU. An AMD Stealth cooler does fit, but comes close to the PSU. With a Gigabyte B450 mITX board, the PSU overhangs the CPU cooler about halfway, leaving the other fully half exposed and able to draw in air. Despite the close fit, the CPU stays below 35C, but will reach 60C under load, which is entirely acceptable.

I'm working on shifting the PSU further outboard. It can be done with a couple of aluminum pieces. Start with aluminum 1/16"x1/2" flat stock from any big-box store. Cut a couple of 3" pieces, drill PSU mounting holes, and a second set of offset mounting holes. Install with the appropriate counter-sunk headed screws. It should provide an additional 1/2" clearance.

Other Thoughts: I installed a Corsair 450 watt SFX PSU. Despite being fully modular, the cables are a little too long for a compact, clean install, but that's typical of any compact case.

I matched it with a Gechic 1102p monitor, ,a Penclic cabled keyboard, and a Thule - Gauntlet Attaché Case for 13" MacBook. The monitor, keyboard, mouse, and all cables easily fit in the Thule case. The entire computer can be packed up in a couple of minutes.

This was built as a compact computer to run Linux. There is a real dearth of laptops that can handle Linux, this lets me choose the ram, cpu, gpu, etc. Compared to a laptop it loses some ease of portability and battery use, but gets full-bore CPU and GPU capability, as well as configuration flexibility.

We have six Lian-Li cases, including one from over 10 years ago. They last forever.

Awesome Tiny Case

Pros: This case is well made, and small.
It gave me a case the woman would be happy with. (she likes small computers for some reason.....

Cons: Its not big and rugged like a man case....

Other Thoughts: At least she will be happy with it! :-)

Which means I will be happy with her.

Sweet piece of equipment!

Pros: Looks really cool, like a little suitcase with important stuff that secret agents are after. Solid and well planned construction. Easily portable, would be great for storing your cryptocurrency.

Cons: The motherboard sits a little high, so the backplate barely fits in there. One port needed a little work to get through the backplate as a result.

Other Thoughts: Weighed only 8.8 lbs in working condition!

Wow!

Pros: Perfect Mini-ITX size for expandability and daily usage.

Easy to setup; my wife was able to build her own computer for the very first time; setting up a mini-ITX system can be difficult due to space constraints; however, my wife was able to get everything mounted, installed and connected correctly the first time! I can remember my first system build where the system case was around two feet tall!

We love the slim 5.25" drive bay support!

All aluminum! In this case, the all aluminum construction works well with its intended purpose, at least for my family.

Easy access; I cannot remember an easier case to open and modify. It is intuitive and works better than another case I recently purchased.

Cons: Although it is not a "con", per se, it is nowhere explicitly stated.

The ONLY PSU that will fit in this case is an SFX-style unit. We had a couple small form factor PSUs for another mini-itx case and they were still too large.

We used the following PSU, found on Newegg as well:

Athena SFX 600W Power Supply Unit.

Other Thoughts: I had not bought a Lian Li case for quite some time and was pleasantly surprised by this little beauty. We liked it so much that I purchased one for myself as soon as my wife had her system together.

It really is a gorgeous little case with the ability to handle an ITX motherboard and an expansion card (i.e., discrete graphics card, etc).
