Looking for a Lian Li..... - Page 5

post #41 of 54
I'd go with any of those cases and drill a hole on the side panel for a nice intake or exhaust. Side panels can be purchased separately from a number of Internet stores like performance-pcs.com and frozencpu.com.

I love my classic PC-G70B case. You'll have to mess with the fan orientation thought since Lian Li likes to place intakes and exhaust in weird places. Or example, the traditionally exhaust orientated fan was used backwards to draw air in over the MOSFET area to cool the CPU - not a big fan of that.

In addition, you'll want to pick up some extra metric thumb screws to replace the screws that hold the expansion cards in.

Don't pick up the $40+ aluminum wheels from Lian Li either. They don't turn turn and they make horrible squealing sounds when you lock them in. Buy a set of 4 casters from a craft store instead and drill them in.

Sounds like a pain I know but Lian Li cases are the bees knees. Besides, aluminum cuts and drills easily.

Thanks for the tips MikersSU,

- i was afraid of those wheels... but since i won't be entering any of these cases in a roller derby i'll probably just live with them... finding casters seems like it'd fall just outside my quantum laziness well.
- knowing what you know about Lian-Li window panels, would you mind looking for a window panel for the PC-V1110 and provide a link if you find anything? I'm just not finding anything on Performance-PCs or FrozenCPU. Too bad Lian-Li makes all their cases slightly different dimensions because there is a stock window panel available for the PC-V1010 (detail) but the PC-V1010 = 210 x 543 x 560 mm (W, H, D) whereas the PC-V1110 = 210 x 542 x 569 and the side panels really look like they'd require an exact fit from the various images.

OpTicaL, thanks, good to know about the plastic HDD mounts in the PC-1000Z tending to vibe noise... this bumps me back towards the PC-V1110...

- its doing the rubber grommet deal (image)... too bad we lose putting the drive cables in the back... i really liked the looks of that on the PC-V1000Z... hmmm... now i'm wondering if i could just connect the cables to the drives while they're out and then slide them in with all that junk in the back??? yeah looking at this that just might work (if cables are long enough of course).
- it's got the full on sound insulation material... which i can't wait to turn around and compromise with a window side panel if at all possible
- thankfully it's still got the multimedia ports in the top where i like it rather than on the stupid front at the bottom... it amazes me how clueless case makers are about little details like that
- and it's got the removable mother board bonus
- wish it wasn't any taller but oh well

and they're actually available right now here, unlike the PC-V1000Z

I've been looking at the PC-A70 since it came out.
Send me some pics when you get it.

Lian-Li makes great cases.

Sure thing. Hopefully I'll have it sometime next week. It depends on when I get my tax refund.

Can't Lian-Li doesn't provide larger screws, can't add rubber dampeners either because then the screw itself would have to be made out of rubber or it won't fit. Do you own a Lian-Li RussianGrimmReaper?

Yes. The screws for the hard drives on my V1100 are the same as in any computer case. I put some washers on them because they were loose. My mounts are the plastic ones that you slide in, and then lock the front.
