Armor or Lian Li?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am having a hard time deciding if i should get the Thermaltake full tower armor, or if i should get the lian li. Both cases have alot of room, side window and great cooling systems.

This really depends on how much space you want. Both are very nice cases but the Armor is just bigger.

I think i might go with the armor just becuase there is a mail in rebate. That and there are more positive reviews on the armor.

You could also check out the Antec Nine Hundred, kinda like the armor but comes with a 200mm blowhole fan.

As far as that lian, Id personally try to stick with a 120mm exhaust. Take a look at a few other lian's. I just got a 7b and am very impressed with how it looks and feels. The thing is mad light and o so pretty, i strapped on some scythe 800rpm fans and its pretty frkin quiet.

those lian li's are nice cases, ive got 2 of them one of which is my main rig and i really like it, the only thing i dont like on it is the little flilppy door over the front usb ports because that is the only spot that seems to be porly designed but other then that i dig em alot, i built a friends rig with the armor and it seemed like a pretty good case and had nice tooless stuff but i jsut think the ian li is better buitl and looking (imo)

Lian Li has an unbelieveable list of accessories . You could use the bottom (2) - 5 1/2" inch bays for a Lian Li 80mm fan blower with built in great looking grille & Lian Li badge. This case looks absolutely KILLER ! I have one & it's great. Fit & finish is top drawer quality.

I could fit my sister in a Armor... nice n' big... just like i like em'

...Armor seems better overall.
I see places for 6 fans 3x120mm 2x90mm 1x250mm and it supports BTX and has ALLOT of room for HD's
