Torn between 2 Lian-Lis (pick one)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Looking at a possible new case, and I was looking at Lian Li for a light, aluminum mid tower. I've cut it down to these two:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112099

PC-7B
120mm x2 80mm x1
2 less 5.25 bays, but I really only need 2 or 3.

PC-61
80mm x4
5 5.25 bays, but not all needed
I have lots of 80mms laying around so this could let me put them to use

Which is better in your opinion? Don't like either? Name another case (full or mostly aluminum), has to be >22" also. but do tell me which of the two you think is better, I really can't make up my mind.

Thanks guys.

I say choice "D"!!!

No seriously though, the second one I've personally seen. Its a pretty decent case if you're into that sorta thing. I'm sure others would have better opinions than that on it though . I've only seen the one. It was a VERY solid case, kinda loud though with all those 80mm fans.

Thanks guys, keep it coming.. I'm tallying what people say (I've asked some others) and the 7b is winning by a lot.

I hate my pc-65! I dont think the 4 80mm fans provide enough airflow. I even have a 120mm blowing into the case and i still have high temps.

If you're not totally set onto those 2 Lian Li's, check out the one in my sig rig. I know theres a few other members on OCN that love theirs. If you are totally set on those 2, I would go with the 7b.
