Lian-Li PC65B, Z-Machine etc

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I like the look of these cases and I want more examples of this style to choose from. I like a windown and the clean look of these cases. Will spend up to $200. Any suggestions?

I would suggest not getting cases with 80mm fans. (they're louder than 120mm) Try this lian li. Its the same one, but with a 120mm fan.

The rear fan is still 80mm. Its the front fan that's 120mm. I thought the PC65B has the two 80mm front fans and the PCB60B has the one 120mm: this confuses me a bit. Anyway thx for the advice.

You could get the PC-7 plus which has 120mm intake and exhaust.

I know there isn't a window in that one, but I'm pretty sure theres a version with a window. I'm using this case right now and I love it. Very nice simple design.

Here's that same case for cheaper, and you have the option (at the bottom) to add the side panel with a window.

Thx guys, it looks like the differences between the two are:
PC-7B
120mm fans front and back

PC 65B.
2x80mm front fans
1 80mm rear fan
1 80mm top fan

So you guys think the PC-7B is better? The problem is I'm buying my next rig thru NCIX.com and they don't offer the PC-7B.

I'm leaning towards the Silverstone TJ09

More expensive but has the clean look I want with better air flow than PC-65B.

The tj09 is very nice. I belive at the top there is room for 2 x 120mm fans as well as 1 120mm intake and exhaust. It is a very nice case and if you have the money for it, go for it.
