    Looks like an amazingly well thought out case. Can take full length cards and all. Maybe even after a bit of modding could accommodate a nice watercooling setup. Also relatively cheap, apparently going to go for $70 in the US.

    It's a bit smaller than my PC-P80 hehe

    Ahhh I like the way it looks. Another great, but tiny, case is the LIAN LI PC-A05NB ATX mini-tower. Cheap, awesome, great performer.

    I always think 90% of Lian Li cases look quite dull, like the stereo type of a german...

    Ugh that thing looks nasty...
    I will however agree that it does seem to be well thought out, apart from half of the front fan being completely restricted by the hdd cage... should of aligned it like the other one or not at all, I mean how many lan cases need 4 hdds. Clearly aimed at a pretty specific market.

    @Bloody_Pete and I think the CM HAF 932 looks very ott and lian-li's very sleek, I also like to think of them as a blank canvas for further improvements :)

    Looks pretty nice to me, if that $70 would translate to below £60 then i'm sold

    Remove the handle and it'd be a very nice case!

    This. It really doesn't look nearly as horrid as most NZXT cases to me...

    isaac12345 these aren't formal benchmark temps, but my system in the Lian Li PC-A05NB runs at about 40 degrees with my CPU around 32 degrees (according to SpeedFan). I love the look of this case. It's sleek, minimalist, VERY high quality build, and very small. The internal layout, mounting features, and everything about this case make it a pleasure to work with. Only word of advice I have is get a modular PSU.

    Asus P6D Deluxe v2
    i7-930 @ 2.8ghz
    Radeon 9850 @ 765mhz
    6GB Corisar 1600mhz 7-8-7-20 RAM DDR3
    1TB Samsung F3 Spinpoint
    Seasonic X-650 PSU
    Noctua UN-90 heatsink (I think that's right) with dual push/pull fans
    Asus DVD drive

    Great case, great temps, and whisper quiet. My stero makes more noise when it's one than my computer and it's got, oh, quadruple the fans?
