By just the pictures compared to what's in my hands...I can't give you anything that has a definitive win.

The Lian LI, is a very elegant case, as are all of their products, and it appears to have plenty of room same with the scout.
The air flow looks well rounded, which is also found in the Scout. I say the scout's air flow is a little better, thanks to the side fans, but that's as easy a fix as cutting some acrylic.
The case is blacked out inside, same with the scout, which makes it very nice, and helps greatly with looks, once you sleeve everything black.
Both have the CPU hole which is awesome once everything gets settled in there, makes heat sink changes a breeze.
I don't see much for cable management in the Lian Li, which is a big plus with the Scout, offering a plethora of options.
The Scout comes with a handle but that really is only a plus for the bit of moving you do, or it could be a major plus for LAN-party fanatic. Also the safety feature in the back of the case rocks but unless you're playing in the hood, I really wouldn't worry about it.

Honestly bro, at this point, it's all about what you're happy with, if you can sleep comfortably knowing that you're spending your money on something you like, that's all that matters. I found it to kinda be one of those love at first site things. You can work on everything else, it just has to look how you want it to. So search for you love, young one, and hopefully you will find her, and if you're lucky she'll f... on the first date....oh wait

Hey guys is this a full size case? I'm just worried if my Thermaltake Toughpower PSU will have a long enough cables?

It's a mid-tower, not a full tower. The only cable that might have an issue is the CPU power cable, cause its at the top. Most of the newer/better PSU's ahve long cables, so I wouldn't think it would be a problem, but I'm not positive. For comparison, my TX750 is more than long enough

ribbit I ditched the second 4870x2. The power consumption and heat was rediculous for an extra 10% in performance. The scaling sucked even with the newest driver 9.7. My 3DMark 06 went from 2800 to 3000 and my fps in crysis gained 5 frames.



Finally cleaned it all up.



This photo is pretty dark but trust me.. it looks good down there. There is another radiator on the front intake connecting to the video card with a black hose.









The top half of the inside has white LED's to lighten up the white hosing and below had UV lights that show even the smallest speck of dust allowing me to clean this baby right.

Hope you enjoy and feel free to ask questions.

Before anyone asks about the water loop, here it is:

Res -> T-Line for draining -> pump -> 120 Rad -> XSPC 4870x2 block -> triple 120 rad -> heatkiller 3 block -> swiftech north bridge block -> res

Hey everyone. This is my first post here and I'd like to share with you my new computer. This was my first build and overall, I am glad to say that things went fairly smoothly with this case. The only problem I had was mounting my optical drive. They little "tabs" made it impossible for me to fit the drive in there. I had to file it down to get the drive in there. Anybody else have this issue? Well enough talking. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment. Also, if anyone has recommendation, please feel free. I'd love to hear your advice, comment, and suggestions.

These would be very useful. Cable management is a biggie! I never had an issue installing my optical drives. But I've heard stories. If you go with the R4 120mm fans for the side panel, they are silent when run just by themselves, but once you place them on the side panel, the horizontal slots obstruct airflow so as a result you get a slightly annoying sound, but you can get use to it. Honestly? I'm use to 149 db of bass slamming at my skull, so 20-40 db caused by air flow? Hardly an issue.
Looks good man, and welcome, Rep up for being a laid back person. Keep the peace going.

Yeah I had that problem myself,did the same as you.I would suggest that you run the power cable out thru the hole next to the psu.Up the back and thru the hole at the top near the dvd drive(if it will reach).Nice setup

Thanks for the advice guys. I know cable management isn't all that great, but being that this was my first build, I wanted to leave that for later and just make sure everything was running first. I now see that I would have saved a lot of headache by just doing it from the beginning. I'm pretty sure the ATX cable will reach, but my CPU cable I doubt it. Would it be better running under the video card? I didn't run it like that when I first installed it, because I wasn't sure if the cable contacting the motherboard would lead to problems later on.
