Thermaltake vs. Lian-Li

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I can't decide if I should get a Thermaltake Kandalf VA9000SWA case or a Lian-Li V2000 case. What do all of you think about it?

Both cases are excellent quality and as you have an external water cooling, space isn't really an issue.
Personally, I've been looking at that Lian-Li case, but can't really justify the extra cash at the mo, but if you have the cash, that would definitely be my first choice. Really like the compartment underneath the mobo, keeps everything looking neat and tidy.

Lian Li is worth the extra money

No other manufacturer can touch the quality and attention to detail they provide.

The only thing I dont like about the lian li is that there is no side window. How hard would it be to put one in it?

I believe we have a FAQ on Window installations in our case mod section. The FAQ section is currently undergoing an upgrade, but you can go to the case mod forum and take a look at some of the FAQs which will be listed on the right side of the page. There are a few Lian Li cases that do have side windows. I totally agree with muffin; Lian Lis are well worth the money if your budget can handle it. Their quality is unmatched, and they include so many nice features that make working with them very very easy.

As some others have said, welcome to the forums.

Yes you can, but it's extra $$ on top of the premium Lian-Li already had. I would say if you want superior quality, go Lian-Li. Both have nice features, but the Lian-Li is a much better case.
