Looking for aluminum case for new build, need opinions please.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm planning out my next build and I want to put it in a nice aluminum case. Currently I have an NZXT Phantom in white but I think I want to do something different. I absolutely love the Case Labs stuff and the Silverstone TJ07 and TJ11 are just dead sexy. But I don't have the kind of funds that are needed to get one of those. Right now I have been drawn to the Lian Li products. There are a couple that I really like such as the PC-A05FNB, and the PC-7FN. I'd just like some suggestions/opinions on Lian Li's product line and feature set as I have never owned on.

G'Day Mate,

Lian Li quality is top notch.
I haven't got a recent model - but I do have 3 from the last 6 year period.
Classic subtle style with good features is what you will get.
Most (but not all) are great air cooling cases - but if water cooling they need some modding to make functional.
This may have change with newer models ??
I just bought a mint condition 2nd hand PC-P50 for $40 - bargain.
My Lian Li V351B build Log

I've never had a Silverstone - so can't comment there.

BUT I do have 3 CaseLabs chassis so on them I can comment.
Simply the best designed cases on the market.
Build quality is sensational as is their customer service.
Upgradable and spare parts available - brilliant !!!

My Opinion - Save up for your flavor of CaseLabs - you won't ever regret it biggrin.gif

not entirely aluminum, but something to consider
