LiLi v700 a05n pc-9nb

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all, so I've been obsessing over a new case lately and got my heart set on a Lian Li. The 3 in the title are the ones I've been looking most closely at but I have a few questions for anyone that has one of them. Ignoring price, just wondering which one I should look closer at. Also, I strictly aircool so wc options aren't important to me.

A05n- really drawn to the small size plus the reverse atx layout. Couple simple mods and looks like cooling is pretty all right. However, I am wondering does any cable management exist? Also, how sturdy is the case? I have heard some of the newer lian lis are a little flimsy feeling.

V700-this case is really attractive and a bit roomier than the a05n though it looks like cable management is a bear. Being a v series I expect its pretty solidly built. How is stock cooling? Has anyone ever tried to reverse the airflow with good results?

Pc-9n- a decent looking case. Stock airflow looks pretty good and looks pretty roomy. The rail mounted motherboard system seems to work well also. To me it seems like probably the safest choice, although I find it the least interesting. Can anyone add any insight into it?

I went for the A05FNB instead of the model N.
FN has better cable management since it has pass-troughs in the mobo tray. I've had no problems hiding all the useless cables of my VX550W, there's just enough space for them behind the PSU and drive cages. It may take a bit more time than with a large ATX case but with zip ties and patience - no probs. Also, the case has a vent hole for the PSU and a place for a top 140mm fan.
One 1150rpm GT in the back and a 500rpm one in the front - no heat issues with my current setup. I've no idea how's the stock cooling, didn't even bother to give it a try biggrin.gif
It's true that the case feels flimsy when you've removed all the panels (which is a great feature btw) but with all the panels installed, it's a quite solid case.
