With a mod by taking the feet off the 540, I wonder how well the 540 would sit horizontally like the HAF XB? This is like a HAF XB but smaller in height which is what I was hoping for.

the 540 has a super quality build but i don't like it cause it doesn't show the psu.
i'm more inclined to go with the lian li...

Damn I didn't see this one before... o_O

I was planning to buy a Corsair 540, the design just plain struck me and it was love at first sight, but this one litterally gives me A BONER!!! biggrin.gifthumb.gif


Unfortunately it's a Lian Li... And that comes with a ridiculous unjustified price tag usually... Just watch: wouldn't surprise me if they ask 300-500$++ for that case...

i too fell in love with the 540 but lack of visible psu is a huge turn off. and i know other manufacturers are gonna copy and modify it. it will be a hit.

i did some research on lian li and i'm a little impressed. they are a korean company and have a bit higher stands compared to chinese stuff. and word is they are still taking feedback on the design of the pc-d600 before they release it. imo its the closest thing to perfection.

i know someone will hit it right be it lian li or coolmaster. i'm just not feeling that 540 like that. but the build is super.


i was at another forum and a lian li guy contacted me on facebook asked me to check out that pc-d600.

Lian-Li cases have a very distinct feel of precision, fit and finish. Corsair makes nice stuff, and in fact they probably have better consistency across their lineup, but at the higher-end Lian-Li is distinctly impressive.

$300 is too much. If the 540 is at 150 the pc-d600 at 300 is overpriced...

yea i don't think we will see the d600 for under $250, let alone $200

i'd love it if it were $150, but i don't see that happening

Corsair because of the price. Lian Li are nice, but nothing overly special. Mine just sits in the closet.
