LIAN LI PC-X500FX Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

3 out of 5 eggs Serious QC flaw 03/23/2011

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-X500FX Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Excellent overall and behind mobo cable management.
Good long fron panel wires.
Good construction.
Plenty of interior room.
Smart design and fan location.
Basically has many of the good things of PC-X2000F but in a smaller size.

Cons: While there are LOTs of pros. There is a (IMO) serious QC flaw. The side panels are held in using "peg" like things. While is not bad, its not a good thing either. Seems like Lian Li cheaped out on reinforcing the side panels. If you see the panels on a PC-X1000, PC-X900 and PC-X2000F or on any other larger ATX towers, they are reinforced with both vertical and horizontal bars to prevent bending and bulging. Compare the panels, you will see what I mean. The PC-X500FX does not use bars, only pegs that latches on to the case frame. However, the front of the side panel on the window side lacks a peg, and because there is less aluminum on this side, the panel has a tendency to bend and bulge outward with the window. At first I thought it was a defect and had Newegg replace it, but now I realize its a manufacturing flaw. I warn all potential buyers right now, I'm guessing most 500FXs are like this, and is NOT an anomaly. Lian Li needs to correct this and stop cutting corners!!!!!

Other Thoughts: With the the pros and cons, again if it were not for the panel design, this tower is excellent and pricey. I would have given this 4 eggs but Lian Li customer support DOES NOT EXIST. THERE IS ZERO WAY OF CONTACTING LIAN LI DIRECTLY. And its ashame because I bought Lian cases in the past and I'm a bug fan of theirs. But my fanboi-sim is waivering... Silverstone is started to look appealing now.

COOLER MASTER ATCS 840 RC-840-SSN1-GP Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs One of the best towers ever 08/28/2009

This review is from: COOLER MASTER ATCS 840 RC-840-SSN1-GP Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: This tower is incredible.
HUGE and spacious.
Its VERY quiet.
Excellent cable management.
Lods of features, love the CPU backplate access.
Beautiful tower, aesthetics are important to me. I'm not into those flashy wacky gaming towers.

Cons: The aluminum walls are flimsy compared to Lian-Li highend towers, but the frame is still rock solid which makes up of rock solid stability.
5.25" drive bays are tight squeeze.

Other Thoughts: Cavernous. I can hear an echo when I yell inside.
