Thank ya. I just realized the front fans on the PC9 are 120mm. Should still be fine. Lian li likely honed the case to match the airflow. Coming from a CM, you'll be impressed with their attention to detail, imo. If your PSU isn't modular, cable management may not be fun. The PC-9 is not what you would call "forgiving." It rewards a clean interior tuned to its engineering. It's rather snooty, and will blame you for high temps.

Only thing I would do if I had that case is replace the fans with some 120mm/140mm Scythe Slipstreams or Thermalright TY-140's; both companies make 140mm versions that fit 120mm slots (though wont fit the rear exhaust on that lian li I dont think). Maybe even the PWM versions since your mobo seems to have multiple pwm connections. Hell now I'm considering buying that case and doing it myself.

p.s. let us know how it works out. =)
