Found the perfect case for my mod idea but no where to buy it! =[

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been narrowing down my choice for a case to build an IBM System/360 inspired workstation. I wanted to go with something in the mid-tower arena because even though I want it to be inspired, I definitely don't want an actual mainframe in my room, hehe. Well, I found this AMAZING Lian-Li PC-X900 case that has a very simple, clean look, perfect for a monolithic build similar to the Corsair Obsidian lines (my 2nd choice / 450D) but I can't find it anywhere! This Lian-Li is tall but shallow, which is perfect! I know they tend to be expensive but man, I feel like it's perfect. What do I do?

IBM System/360 Mainframe








The main thing I want is a wind tunnel airflow, which is why I'd want this case or go with the Obsidian line. I always use the bays for another fan. I don't like Z shaped airflow. I'm going to go with the System/360 color scheme and the PC-X900 case has a really neat top zone that I can mod to make look like an old school control panel. I love how the PC-X900 has a tall but skinny frame that gives it a mainframe-like vibe.

Did you check the "where to buy" section on the Lian-Li site? They have a long list of distributors. Even if you don't find a particular product on their sites, they can get it if you ask.

Oh thank god Dire, I went through them, especially the massive Hampton Tech list for US distributors and didn't see it. Your post made me check again & luckily found it. I'm contacting them now to see how much it is. Do you have any recommendations for another case if this one doesn't work out?
