I will post unboxing and before and after pics when everything arrives.
Ooh...nice. I'm sure you'll love it - I would have got the FW if it was available in the UK yet . The only difference between the 7F and the 60F is the front panel. And I too preferred the square rather than rounded intake style. The internals are better than the 7B IMO. I removed the HDD cage as its major design flaw was that it blocked airflow from the front fan. If you have only one HDD grab a set of HDD silencers and mount it in the 5.25" bay. Overall its nice, my only slight niggle is that the front mesh and bars are plastic not metal, but that can be removed by screws for a bit of modding perhaps (a res would look nice there). And the removable top panel is a godsend for heatsink fitting/removal.

I got my Lian Li ARMORSUIT PC-P60 today gotta get my camera back so I can take some pics. I like the removable motherboard tray but had to take off my heatsink to put it back in and the built in fan controller is also nice but had to replace the 3 front fans cause they sucked.

What im after in these cases is having the Hdd bays side on with 2nd set of 120mm fans on the hdd as pull setup. Really need to get my hd's cooler, right now in my antec 900 they're 44c, and its not even summer! I've bought some Kaze 120x38mm, anyone know if they will fit in the front if i replace stock fans?
I don't care about the hot swap a great deal, it looks breakable and if 1 port on it is broken maybe the whole thing has to go.
Alright, im gunna quote myself 1 more time, should be the last time!
I was waiting on the A70 for about a week when it was listed as discontinued in my order. I got pissed off with that e-shop after that and went back to my usual supplier. They had the A7010 listed but a lot more than the original price, i bit the bullet and went for it, and she arrived today, so ive got some pictures of the new family addition.
Everybody say hello to Gloria!

Undressing her






Bits and pieces included.


Hot swap bay. The fans on the left have adjustable brackets all around it so 38mm fans can be inserted.

The crappy Antec900. What a mess, no room for cable managment.

Under construction

Empty antec

Backside mess

Finished.

Glorias new home,


Very happy with it, its massive sitting on the desk. Included fans are extremely quiet, ive stuck a 3000rpm kaze in there and its all i can hear. Im going to put some soundproofing on the panels.
Thanks for watching.

Looks very nice! I like the built-in SATA power and data ports in your HDD bays. Did you have any problems getting your HDDs connected to them? Are the outputs on the side of the rack? Seems like that would allow you to use a very short cable, and make for easy management of everything.

I love my hot swap bays. Wish I could get them to replace the regular bays too. Lian Li won't sell them as spares.

If you ever decide to do something crazy like remove it and mount a radiator there I have dibs to buy it. Deal?

Lol, i havent thought about WC but i probably should seeing as i live in the tropics, 3days away from winter and its 29celcius, imagine summer!
I was dubious about the hotswap bays, but having used them i'm in love instantly. Theyre much more solid than i expected, drives slide in so easy and connect so easily. I plugged in an old drive which i think is broken and BSOD instantly. Ill try another some time. All the connection are on the backplate of the hot swap unit, out of the way nicely.
My temps havent changed at all from my antec to this, this was the whole point of it
Idle cpu/gpu/hdd 39/60/44 same as before.
Theres 4 fans on the hd's now and it hasnt dropped! So any suggestions?

Congrats Nazul.

That's a beautiful case.
post #579 of 3855
Just finished putting things together. Cable management is a mess.

I was expecting the mid-tower to be a little bigger, sure looks a lot bigger on Newegg. Lian-Li quality once again, $150 for a case like this is a no brainer. I'm surprised how quiet this case is without sound dampening, not as quiet as my V2110 but pretty quiet nonetheless.

*sidenote* The Zalman 9900 installation was hell. It wasn't meant for socket 775 as a philips screwdriver will not make full contact with the 2 screws closest to the rear fan because the heatsink is preventing full contact. Need to get a set of 90 degree angle screwdrivers tomorrow. Core Temp is reporting 25C and 35C respectively for both cores at idle.

I already have the 5.25" modules. I want backplanes everywhere. That's all.
