yarp.

I said "the door... on the front... ruins this entire case."

So, I'm as sure as I am straight (which means completely).


But, whatev. I love Lian Li but they really, really need to step up their game. All they're doing is bringing back old models with USB 3 and a few tweaked features. Like the *shudder* Antec Darkfleets...

This..They're forcing modders and watercoolers to use other brands with their latest designs, as none of them would accomodate enough radiators for what's needed to cool multi-gpu, cpu, mobo combos ..sad really.

They prevent modders so that their cases won't end up like this sad thing.

What about these? These are works of art using the same chassis:

Those are both works of art..Oh well. Hopefully someone can develop and build a decent mod-platform of lian-li like quality without it being a crude, cube-like thing like most mountainmod cases in the near future.

I would agree with the LED's & Side mounted RAD.

Though white cases and windows don't make for a bad case.
