So do I! What the heck is that all about. This one specifically. I can see the GTX 360 up top.

IMO the Lian cases look just like the old school, beige boxes, minus the beige. Not my cup o tea.

Also, why is it that when ever I look at a case I look for a spot for the rad.

5. I like the way Lian Li's cases look, very clean and professional looking. but yes i have something against their pricing, just like i wont run out and buy that new $90 zalman cooler when i can buy a $40 Xigmatek cooler that cools better for less then half the price.
Read what you wrote one more time:

Why are you ignoring the fact that no matter what material is used they are all computer cases?
You said whatever materials used does not matter. I stated that it does matter. How is that not a legit comparision? The cost of manufacturering aluminum is higher than steel. What do you not understand? Steel < Aluminum < Carbon Fiber. Certain materials/metals cost more to manufacture than others, it's that simple. Allow me to reiterate one more time, Certain materials cost more to manufacture than others. You go on rattling about performance?!? You strayed off your own topic: "Materials". I can't talk to someone who FAILS to stay on topic.

You totally dodged a obvious question, how is Lian-Li overpriced when Thermaltake, NZXT, SILVERSTONE and Zalman FULL TOWER ALUMINUM cases cost more than Lian-Li?


Explain this to everyone: Computer Hardware > Computer Cases > Computer Cases > Case Material : Aluminum

Aside from Limited and Special Edition cases the first overpriced case, according to your standards, turns out to be: ABS -> Thermaltake SwordM -> ZALMAN 600HP -> NZXT Khaos -> ZALMAN GT1000-B -> GIGABYTE 3D Mercury Pro -> ZALMAN GT1000-T -> ZALMAN GT900 -> LIAN LI PC-A20B

Wow, I couldn't believe my eyes! Lian-Li came in a distant 9th place! I'm speechless. Wait, who said Lian-Li was overpriced again?
I'm done here, time and time again I proved Auld wrong with solid factual evidence and not once could Auld provide me with solid unbiased proof to back up his statements.

Yeah, and you're ugly.

I have never had a Lian Li, but a number of my friends have. They are the best built cases I have ever come in contact with. There are a bunch of haters in here, just enjoy your case. Their opinion does not affect it in anyway.

Oh, BTW, one of my friends got one of the CM 690. That thing is a hunk of junk. It looks nice, but I feel like it is going to break every time I power it on.

Edit: For all the haters out there, I have a Cooler Master case as you can see. There are very few Antec/Cooler Master cases out there that I will actually buy. I hate plastic and steel cases. They feel cheap, look cheap and guess what... I think they cool less efficient than aluminum cases do.

Don't even worry about it Optical. It's something that just can't be understood until working with one. Reading specs and hands-on are 2 different things.

I've been lurking here for a very long time, but after reading some of this, I had to respond...

Lian-Li, along with Silverstone, make the BEST cases money can buy... period. I used to use Coolermasters, Antec's, etc... UNTIL, I built a computer for my mom several years ago, and used a Lian-Li. Once I had that beauty in my hands, and saw the quaility craftsmanship, I was sold.
Also, aluminum cases are NOT about the "weight" like some of the ill-informed here seem to think. Sure, they are usually lighter due to aluminum being a lighter metal, but that isn't the purpuse of using AL (at least not with quality cases like Lian-Li and Silverstone). Aluminum cases dissipate hate better than steel cases. Plus, to prove my point... my Silverstone TJ09 is ANYTHING but "light". It's actually about as heavy as a typical steel case the same size.

For me I don't care what its made of, wouldn't care if it was made of silver-plated clay if it did the job, things I look for when I picked mine...

- Is it different
- Does it fit all the parts I want now and in the future
- Does it have space inside
- Does it have good cooling

Granted my case is clad in aircraft grade alu-plastic but I don't care, for me it looks good, cools very well, has loads of room, gives me upgrade options and its different.

I went through loads of cases, up to and over £700 (what ever that is in $) but for me this case fit the bill, I was originally looking at the BMW Thermaltake Level10GT....



....at £733 but you would not have seen my water cooling setup so I ruled it out, I ultimately when for the normal L10GT as my PC is viewable from the side and I didn't want a "PC facing backwards" in the room, the L10GT is hard to work out which way it faces so it fits in and that's what won it for me.

As you can see, a normal PC would just look like a PC facing the wrong way, I needed something different that looked like it was suppose to face out to the side and the L10GT does that really well.


For me I'm paying for something that ticks box's and if they are all ticked I'm happy, if I'm happy ill spent the money, If you have to question if something is worth it on cost, then maybe you should be putting cost at the top of the list first in which case the Lian-Li cases or any other premium case is not what you should be looking at as your paying extra for design, material and a little bit of exclusivity over your hum drum cases.

If you have to look at the menu and justify why the steak cost so much, maybe your in the wrong restaurant,
