when really they have lancool..

Lian Li's are distinguished by 100% aluminum construction while the lan cools are steel...

Just bugs me kinda, idk.

*Sticks nose up in the air*

Lancool is made by Lian Li, so I can see where the mistake is. As I don't like full aluminum cases, if I were to get "Lian Li" case, it would be a Lancool. Some people just don't want to spend so much money on a Lian Li. You can get similar looks for a lot cheaper.

That said, I'd have Lancool in my signature as well as Lian Li:

"Lian Li Lancool somenumbersandletters"

I just wish the one I have had more cable management features.

Really, what difference is there between steel and aluminum, besides weight?
People get so worked up over the silliest things.

Ease of modding/cutting. Durability to corrosion. (Aluminium doesn't rust, though it does oxidise.)

Lian Li's cases tend to be a lot nicer looking, too.

Lancool is like their "LOLOLO 1337 GAMER" line.

Aluminum radiates heat better than steel, doesn't rust, it's easier to cut, and is lighter. Or in other words, unless you are a ladyman living in the Amazon, and only had cheap Chinese tools, it doesn't matter.

Really? I'm pretty sure they both have them. Even though Lancool has more.

Oh the reason why they do it is because it looks like a Lian Li on the outside with the awesome aluminum ( Made by LL?... ) but the inside it turns out to be steel

Can't really say I've ever had my computer case rust out on me ...

Looks like lian li, no it doesnt, it doesnt have the cut aluminum look, it has the boring steel look, stupid cases.

If your money goes to the Lian Li company, you own a Lian Li. It's no different than QQing about GMC owners saying they have a Chevy because the badge on the front is different and they have nicer trim.

Yeah, this wouldn't be something I'd get worked up over. I have a dirt cheap case since I was on a very fixed budget when I first started this computer. In the long run, what other people have or claim to have is pretty insignificant to me and who I am. If they're happy with what they have, more power to them.

modding aluminum is completely different from modding steel. everything from painting to cutting, aluminum is a far superior surface to use. there is, to me, a HUGE difference in materials. and yes, i have nice tools (dewalt, rotozip, devilbiss)
