No build log yet - but I may create one shortly. My rate of progress though is rather slow, as I am always having second thoughts about my component choices. For example, now I have 3 reference Asus GTX 680 2GB cards, which I want to water-cool anyway, so I ordered the appropriate blocks for these.

However, I'm wondering if I should choose something else for this new build. I don't mean wait for parts that are not yet on the market, such as "big" Maxwell, but cards like the R 290. In central Europe there has not been the mining craze, and as such these cards remain considerable cheaper than their Nvidia competition.

With this hobby, one day I can be absolutely sure which parts I want to get and incorporate into my build, then the next minute I can read a post here on OCN or a review, and I can totally change my mind:-)! I wonder how many of us do the same?

I think we are all influenced by what we read, hear, etc... so I understand that totally!

@ Reworker

True on the PSU on D600 faces up. I suppose this all depends on the build you have. I think for air cooled systems you would want it facing down so the hot air from GPU does not go into it like you guys said. As for my build or anyone else that's using LIQUID cooling on GPU and so on i would say facing up would be fine. There would be no warm air blowing onto it. For me the PSU is facing up as my corsair is awesome under full load i have never seen the fan come on yet. It just seems not to get hot. lol my current air system must be keeping it cool. smile.gif

@ BazG,

Thanks for that - the consensus seems to be PSU fan down for air cooling and PSU fan up for water-cooled builds. This evening I was doing some test fittings of the PSU and cable routing, using the Silverstone single-sleeved PSU cables (not extensions). I knew the clearance was tight, but was surprised to find just how tight it is.

I thought that the single-sleeved cables would assist with the narrow space, and I believe they do to some extent, but it is still necessary to flatten out the ATX 24 pin cable as much as possible in order to slide the drive cage back in, and even then there seems be some resistance and pressure on the motherboard tray.

Any tips for making the most of the available space?

Yup i did the same thing. Flatten the cable as much as possible and i toke the shortest route away from the cage. Another way is to cut out parts of the drive cage away. Something i didn't do. rolleyes.gif

@ BazG,


I figured that this would be the only solution. I'm looking for something similar to those cable management clips that cgipson1 posted earlier which I can find in Europe. His EVGA PSU has very similar single-sleeved cables to my SS Strider Evo, and running the majority of them vertically up the middle of the back of the mobo tray seems a good idea.

I wouldn't want to cut the drive cage unless I absolutely had to, and I don't think that's really the case here. However, for the sake of making the case an inch wider, the cable management could have been effortless. Something like the velcro tab system like on the Phanteks Enthoo Primo would have been a good choice too.

All in all though I simply love the aesthetics of this case and are prepared to put up with a few short comings. Last year at Computex, Lian-Li also showed the D7000 along with the D600, but I haven't heard or read anything about this case since. The D7000 is like a hybrid of the D600 and the larger D8000.

For those of us who are fans of cube cases, the D7000 should be very appealing: http://www.eteknix.com/computex-lian-li-draft-title/

Yup i agree cutting is not a good idea. Like you say id rather work a way around it. Same for me in the aesthetics department, it has a small floor there but for everything else it is very eye catching and appealing. The aesthetics of this case gives its own appeal. Since i showed my case off here at a computer build expo at the local school here there has been so many asking where they can buy the case. They are a pretty expensive case here in AUS.

Computex is the reason why i bought this case in the end. The D7000 did not go into production for some reason but maybe they will bring it out at a later stage i think.

Agreed, the positives outweigh the few flaws the case has. Not sure if the case has been that popular though, as even on a specialist forum like OCN, there only seems to be a handful of owners.

As for the cable management, I ordered some P-clips and short 6mm M3 hex head screws to secure the single-sleeved cables to the back of the motherboard via the unused standoff holes.

I have my build and I mostly love this case except a few issues. Is anyone else having problems with the plastic inserts that accept the pins on the side panels. Thus far I've had 3 break. One of the wings will break off and the insert will no longer be supported in the opening for it. It included one extra which also broke. I am trying to be as careful as I can and I do not manhandle any of my systems. Currently I am using 2 on the back side which I have Crazy Glued the wing back onto but I know it's only a matter of time. Awaiting Response from Lian LI. Included a couple pics of my system in case anyone is interested in my build. Adding another 780 as soon as the WB arrives. Thanks

Just a quick update... Lian Li Support is sending some replacement inserts so I am pleased how quickly they responded
