Yes, it's on tool less vibration free rubber washers.

*Sorry..was thinking the SSD.

The HDD cage is removeable...three thumb screws.

Can someone inform me of the appeal to these cases? I feel like i should like them, but I just dont. The build quality is great but they seem pretty ugly otherwise...

I like cases like the FD Arc Midi and the R3. I've been looking at the lian li website and I find myself becoming more attracted to them, but they seem pretty bad for air cooling

I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but what? confused.gif What do you find ugly about them? What gives you the impression that they are bad at air cooling?

I like Lian Li cases because they are elegant in their simplicity. There are generally no unnecessary curves or angles. They don't look like alien spacecraft. Form follows function. If function is ugly, then Lian Li cases are hideous. biggrin.gif

I own 3 Lian Li cases, and they all have excellent airflow. They move a lot of air while remaining quiet. My silver A77 has 7 fans total in it, and pretty much all I can hear from my chair is the HDD clicking away. Everything remains relatively cool even when the CPU and/or GPU are churning away at 100%.

It depends on what style of case you like. There are those who like the elegant, understated, brushed aluminum look of Lian Li and Silverstone cases, and those who like the blingy and gamer look of Coolermaster, Antec, and Thermaltake cases.

I'm one of the former. I hate the plasticky look of cases like the HAF X, especially with that large, obnoxious fan on the side panel. It makes the window look like an awkward upside down L. The point of a window is to showcase everything on the motherboard, and large side fans just cover that up. I mean seriously, who wants to stare at the 5.25" drive bays? tongue.gif

Then again, opinions are opinions...

Regarding airflow, I really can't deny that Lian Li cases generally have inferior airflow compared to Coolermasters and Antecs, but that's mainly because Lian Li cases don't have large side panel fans.

I love Lian Li & Silverstone personally. Understated beauty is my thing nowadays. smile.gif My tech station is a Lian Li T06-B and it is wonderful. It certainly won't be my last Lian Li.

I was considering a Lian Li PC-05NB for my next build, but I think I'm going to try out Silverstone's TJ-08E.

I would like to join, I own both a Lian Li and SilverStone!

The Lian Li is a PC-A70B that I have water cooling in but I am keeping the Lian Li look (clean) I am really a Aluminum case fanboy and like all cases that have that clean crisp look of quality manufacturing!

The SilverStone which in this thread is not important but just to let people know is the TJ-10 Nvidia Edition and it is a air cooled unit as of now, but plan on putting water in it as well.

I noticed a few fans of Lian Li out in other threads, but no one has a link to this Thread in there sig, would you guys mind if I made one? or is there a reason that you have not posted one up?
