In the extra compartment you can pretty much only fit one thin 360 radiator, the rest of the space is dead, blocked by the power supply which cannot be moved around, the 2 fans in the back can not be mounted without the bulky drive bay. The side panels rattle and feel like they will create a lot of noise from the vibrations when all the fans are in place. Lian li went to the trouble of adding air filters in 2 of the intakes, but they left a lot of holes and gaps all over the place, where dust will get inside, effectively negating the benefits of having fan filters in the first place. idiotic!
The lighting of the case can not be turned off in case you might need to, the power button is a cheap clicky wiggling piece of crap, there is no reset button. The card retaining screws are covered by a piece of metal that wiggles and it has holes in it that also allow air and dust to get in. the mounting plate for the fan on the top can be removed along with the incorporated filter, leaving behind a gap where you can almost stick your whole hand inside. The exhaust grille in the back has a very flow-restrictive pattern and will probably make the fans louder than they shoud be. on the motherboard compartment, you can only mount one 120mm fan, the rest of the grille is just dead space, they could have made a pattern where you can choose to mount 2 smaller fans instead of the 120mm one maybe...
But the case looks pretty good. crappy, but good looking.





This case isn't a good choice if you can't work through some of its flaws. It doesn't give a whole lot of customization options unless you can modify certain things on your own.

Random thought, am I the only one that is bothered that there is no ek backplate for the reference GTX 980 Ti. I'd prefer my backplate to have 980 Ti on it and not Titan X. mad.gif

But this way you can trick people into thinking you spent too much money!

Rob27shred That is one impressive Skylake build there! thumb.gif That MSI Titanium mobo is so sexy biggrin.gif Might be the next thing I save up for TBH as I am looking to replace my GB Z170XP-SLI sooner than later. I also really want to start researching custom loops as I now have a XFX 390 & MSI 290X crossfired in my rig that are begging to be put underwater. Oh well I'll get there, I am still new to building PCs & have learned a lot in the last year messing with mine. Pretty much just need to learn about doing custom water cooling loops & I'll be able to build what I truly want to! smile.gif

DarthBaggins I'd just run them in RAID 1 (rather have redundancy since they're quick as is)
