ian Li has gone all out, aiming to make the ultimate PC chassis. While this has been the aim with some of their previous cases before, they have always managed to impress. With a changing landscape and a new high-end board format a new case needed to be designed to meet their demand. Sure 400 USD or even 390 Euro is the price some of us pay for the entire system under our desks, so it really comes down to one question: "do you really need this chassis?" Sure it has an uncompromising build quality, yes you can fit a crazy 15 hard drives in it and an EVGA SR2 can be placed inside the case along with a stack of graphic cards and two CPUs, while still leaving room to breath, but if you really do not need any of these aspects, you will be better served with one of the "smaller" Lian Li offerings like the V1010, giving you that same level of quality along with a similar feature set.
