Great case, you'll need an extra fan though

Adam, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Brilliant case. I was amazed that my full sized ATX board could fit in this. The quality is excellent. My only problem is that the airflow isn't sufficient for a high end PC. I have an 8 core, with a 7900 graphics card.

Lian-Li simply the best

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: I have owned 2 previous cases from Lian-Li and a number of others from reputable manufacturers including Silverstone, each time I buy other kinds I end up being dissapointed. Lian deliver quality, efficient cases and good look. Not going to try and buy another make in future.

Lian Li case

The Mass, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Just built a new computer using a Black Lian Li case. This has to be the Rolls Royce of cases for the money. It is very elegant, stylish and sturdy with a fantastic finish. It is very quite and does not have lots fancy lights; very discrete.

Small but perfectly formed

W. Wilson, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: This is surely one of the most attractive cases, and has the high build-quality you associate with Lian-li (it's my fourth). How it differs from the usual mid-tower Lian-lis is in its size and finish.

Nice Chassis

Arboreal Cephalopod, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Very simple fittings for every thing except the PSU. Nice and quiet, with no rattles and looks the dogs wobblers. This discs mount via slotted rubber washers which is a lovely simple, quiet solution. SSDs are mounted at the bottom of the case, so you need a long SATA lead.

Great quality, no 140mm fan grill

Christopher N., Newegg
7 July 2015
  • Summary: This case is great. Just remember, if you want to run a 140mm exhaust fan you need to buy a fan grill.
  • Pros: Sleek smooth no frills design... The way the power supply mounts is amazing.
  • Cons: -1 egg because they have an optional 140mm fan mount and there is no fan grill to go with it!... also the CORSAIR H90 DOES NOT FIT... the radiator will not clear the mobo. Don't make the same mistake I did. Now I gotta RMA my watercooler :(

  • Summary: Seriously, aluminum cases are light. It's amazing. Definitely worth the money.
  • Pros: One of the best cases I've ever owned -- I don't know why I didn't buy a Lian Li case earlier. The all aluminum construction means it's light but still strong (compared to picking up an old-fashioned steel case, you can really tell the difference). Everything gets routed nice and easy and easy on...
  • Cons: The only downside is when you choose to mount a fan on the top fo the case, there's no grate protecting the fan -- it's basically just an open hole right into your computer. I've been careful not to drop anything down it, but it'd be terrible if anything does.

  • Summary: I knew about the size limitations but bought this case anyway. In the end I am glad I did. If you are patient then you can assemble this well even with full size parts. Just don't expect to open it up and tinker with it often!
  • Pros: As always with a Lian Li case, it is well built and looks good. Components are easy to install...so long as they are small enough.
  • Cons: This case really can fit a full size ATX board, power supply and GPU, but it becomes a very tight fit when using full size parts. The front power supply position is an excellent use a space, but if you are using a power supply that is longer than average then it can interfere with ports on your m...

Most fun build ever!

Jonathan D., Newegg
11 July 2014
  • Summary: I am dumbfounded what a beautiful and well thought-out case this is. It doesn't go together any quicker than a normal case because there is ALWAYS some extra bracket or do-wicky to deal with such as the quick releases on the drive case.
  • Pros: 1. Good price, good deliver, good packaging. 2. Attractive smallest case that fits an ATX but looks like an mATX case. 3. Most everything that you need is included, even the post speaker that I stressed I had no post speaker and there it was included LOL Lots of nice screws. 4. It is EASY to work...
  • Cons: 1. The unusual power supply placement, of course. I always wondered why someone didn't put a PS in that big empty space at the bottom front of the case, and Lian Li has! 2. I stressed that the PS I had was extra long and what was I to do? There are an extra set of bracket holes at the bottom, so ...

Sleek

Donald A., Newegg
4 June 2014
  • Summary: Power supply sits at bottom front of case. my old supply had too short a lead to connect to the motherboard. got a new supply. never a bad idea.
  • Pros: Sleek, smooth, minimalistic brushed black aluminum finish Everything is logical and fits nicely together Second one of these I've owned, my son has the first one Looks terrific there, replacing a 10 year old yellow case Did I mention that it is beautiful?
  • Cons: No room behind motherboard tray for cable routing Only room for three 3.5" hard drives
