Help me to pick a Lian-Li case

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've owned quiet a few enthusiast cases (recently Corsair 800D, 700D, CM 690 II Advanced) but never a Lian-Li so I'm making the move this time and really need you guys' help.
Requirements:
- Mid size
- Side panel
- Great cable management since I'm a freak in term of that.
- Great airflow
- Prefer getting from newegg.
Budget is no concern since I know Lian-Li ain't that cheap so I'm kinda ready. Will be using Corsair H50 with GTX 480 SLI stock cooling if that might help.
Can't really think of anything else at the moment but I'll keep update till I find a perfect fit. Calling all Lian-Li owners

Lian Li PC-P50WB

What did you mean by side panel? Like a window? The X500FX looks pretty sweet.

I myself am eyeing the V1020B if my search for my dream case blows up in my face.

IMO full tower is where Lian Li shines.

But if has to be a mid-tower, I would recommend this

How about this one? Seems to suit your needs well.

Maybe it's just me but I don't really like the look of the X500FX and yeh, I mean the side panel with window so I can look inside the case.

Part of the reason I don't wanna go full tower since I still consider this is a budget build for me as I'm not ready to go all out just yet, therefore in the meantime waiting for my next build I just need something nice yet compact and convenient in case I move around.
I like the case you linked but unfortunately I'd rather have it with a window.

That's what I'm debating between that and the P50WB

I just had a V1020R. The case is great but it has a few over sites and is a dust vaccum.
The front holes intake dust from everywhere.

I recently bought this for $95 Shipped from Newegg.

You can buy a window from performance-pcs.com, cut one out yourself or at a water cutting shop.

A local shop here in Miami charges $25 to cut a square or pattern and the acrylic at another shop costs around $10.
So for $130 you can have a custom window.

Sad to hear the V1020 didn't work out for you. The red was was even sexier because it had a black interior!

For the one you linked, I think it is this one but with the inside painted black and that funky window. I was a never fan of the shape of that window.

The looks of the V1020R is amazing. Deep rich red color. Like an automobile candy paint job.

I don't like Lian Li windows either, so that's why I suggested waterjet or dremel. He can cut his own sized window or pattern. Then mount the acrylic on the inside flush with the panel. For the same price they'll probably cut out fan holes for the top panel too.

I was going to ask if you wanted to buy the V1020R but I couldn't find your thread about two days ago.

I'd rather buy one with the window so I don't have to go through the hassle of making one

Sadly it's discontinued on the egg.
I think pretty much from what i've seen so far my choices narrow down to either the PC-60FNW and the PC-P50WB.

It's cool man, I haven't made up my mind until today so I can get a replacement for my CM 690 II Advanced.
