Cutting down the mobo tray and ripping out the 120mm fan cages and pulling off the USB adaptor (possibly) and replacing the side panels with acrylic. Gonna get getting on the modding either later today or tomorrow most likely.

Would be interesting to see the final product.yessir.gif

100% stock? No sir lol. Had to mod it a little to fit the H50 into it when I first built it last month. Temps where pretty typical with that, bout 40c...ish idle lol. Got the rad in the 5.25 holders, leave the bays open in order to vent, worked out very well. I plan on doing a very similiar deal for the dual 92mm rad. Still conflicted on where I pull put my res/pump. I want to keep it easily accessible/away from the GPU since once I drop that 580 in there, it is gonna be tighter than a alterboy (pre molestation that is)! But sure, I will post pics. May be a good week or two before the final product though. Waiting on the LGA 775 backplate for my cpu block. Apparently Swiftech doesn't see the need to accompy it with their products anymore =\\. At least they are sending it to me for free lol...but of course that means that its gonna be super slow delivery.

Of course, this thing won't be 100% done for quite some time. Once I get that PSU, I plan on sleeving it with blue paracord (just ordered today), which will take me some time since it will be my first time. Then I will need to redo the loop for my 580, which won't go in until the Kepler GPUs come out. Contiplating upgrading the RAM to 8gb...unnecissary...yes, but cmon. I'm watercooling a friggin mATX and throwing a 580 into it...FUGGIT! lol

Sounds like plenty of hardware will be in that case, hope it has room to breathe.

But on the most part Lian Li cases are great though I wish they would've gave better thought on the PC-A05 series cases where some have said that the power supply fan is revving up because of the lack of ventilation for that front of the case mounted PSU behind a pretty much solid front bezel as well as overall planning for better air cooling.

Not everyone wants to mod a case.

This is my first Lian Li and i love it. Great build quality. Wish I knew about Lian Li before I bought my 800D. Havent modded that at all, but will one day...wanna mount an external rad and a fill port most likely. Nothing major but still. Only reason im modding now, is cause i am bored while waiting on school to start again lol. Gotta do something during the day.
