Front side.

The PSU can either be fitted in the top OR the bottom section allowing a PA120.3 to be installed into the roof.




Up here you can either put HD's, a PSU or leave it empty for a radiator.


PSU Goes here or you can blank it off and probably fit a 120 or 240mm rad on the floor.



Crazy overkill HD cooling, will create a wind tunel around the GFX area though so this case is probably fairly good for air cooling.



Rear of the case... 120mm fan and vented PCI slots



To put all this into scale, thats a PA120.3 sat on top of the case



and I also reckon a PA120.2 will fit in here, either where it is at the moment or rip the HD cage out and stick it there.


Opinions?
Do you like this more than a V2000?

IMO it looks very sleek and clean, much more clinical than a V2000... this might not appeal to everyone but I think that if I was given the choice between the two I would pick this.

Another thing that is a massive bonus in my book is that unlike the V2K, all the external panels can be removed from the internals and be anodised or powdercoated!!!!

thanks,thatsa good idea i know a guy that powder coat and for no $ to his friends does really nice work to.

Clean lines. A big case has so much potential for modding. I like my 1200 but wish now I had bought a 2000.

That A70 sure would look good with a nice big window, high-gloss paint and some lighting.

Hey Marcus I was planning on doing this mod like this... I was going to add a 240GTX standing upright like the PA120.2 but with 120mmx38mm fans for intake area... Sorry for the BAD paint remake..

I have another case a SilverStone TJ09 case something in the same way but better for showing off some Raptor X 150... I will PM you about the idea I have..

@Lu(ky - Yeh if you removed the front hard drive cages (which is easy enough to do, its about 8 screws I think) then you should be able to put a rad in the front no problem.

If you wana use a PA120.2 you "may" need to mod the floor of the 5.25" bays but nothing too drastic!

Hello,

I just ordered this case, a beautiful clean, sleek monolith that will stand like a Combine Citadel imposing itself over the room! No fancy lights or shiny windows for me, it speaks for itself.

The space, the looks, quality and included air cooling package sold me on this case. I will use it along with a new motherboard to salvage my bad purchase (me points at system below).

Yup thats exactly what I like about Lian Li's!!

They can either be left alone and will look elegant of many of their chassis' provide an excellent blank canvas on which to work upon!
