Any thoughts on the Lian-Li 60FN?

I've been a big user of Lian-Li cases for a lot of years. Like them but have not tried some of the newer Antecs or CMs. It's a bit pricey; I used to spend this kind of money on a case but nowadays if I can get away with a "bang for the buck" I'll usually go that way. But this one looks nice. The overall height is just about where I need it to be for my placement.

Anybody actually try one of these babies?

The 900 does look like a nice case, but I'm not sure it's ideal for me. I don't like the full panel going up and down on the left front side blocking off the drive bays. I prefer more accessible drive cages. Also would prefer not to have windows or LEDs. And I like the processor cutout on the Lian-Li. If there was something along these lines for a bit less money believe me I'd consider it.

A LIAN LI Lancool PC K58 sounds good for you. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112237

The airflow isn't the best. What kind of system (sig rig?) do you plan to put into it? Something highly overclocked with SLI vid cards probably won't benefit from it.

The CM HAF 922 is a very good "bang for the buck" type of case with excellent airflow. If you don't like the LEDs you can leave them turned off http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-197-_-Product

Thanks Allen. Look at my sig for the current OC'd system. I will probably upgrade the video soon and go to 4GB RAM, but I'm pretty sure I won't be going SLI.
