I would get that Lian Li posted by SexyBastard, I had a raven rv02 and while it cools nicely they are just riddled with flaws.
For example the 3 180mm fans on the bottom are sleeve bearing fans mounted horizontally. We all know how that goes. (I had one actually catch on fire pics are in the silverstone case club).
The frame is thin, if you have a whole system mounted inside of it and the panels off you can feel the frame twist when you try to move it.
The included thumbscrews for the case are absolute garbage, half of them came stripped and after a couple times taking off the side panel you have to use larger ones because the stock ones dont fit anymore (the holes in the case get wider).
Plastic, after a couple weeks I couldn't stand it anymore (might not matter to you).
Overall I liked the case at first but I got tired of it pretty quickly. Also the build quality of the $170 raven to my $110 Lian Li doesn't even come close. I never believed all the "hype" Lian Li cases got until now, I am a believer now. The raven is about on par with Thermaltakes Element series (IMO).
Dont take this the wrong way I'm just trying to help you make a good decision on your case. I expected alot out of that case, and I dont feel like I got what I paid for.
