    Nice. In some ways similar to the case design I've had rattling around in my head for a while now. I's love to go with a WC double with config for my next system, but I'll have to get a bigger, and stronger desk first.

    I am surprised with the waterkit they included. With sutch a big case I thought it would be a really extreme watercooling kit but it isn't that big. Enough room to
    do some really cool modding. But the case is al littel bit to big for me.

    Maybe it's just me, but what's so special about Lian Li cases? I got one for a build a while ago and it was nothing short of disappointing. Bad layout prevented me from being able to connect wires to the CD drive without cutting off all my fingers first. The metal for the case seemed really thin and made a really loud sort of metallic sound whenever you tap on it from the outside. The fans that came included were extremely loud, and the build quality didn't impress me at all. Granted, I didn't buy one of the really expensive ones, but I got one that was about $90 and received excessively high reviews from everyone on Newegg.

    yep, good allround review.

    I think Aqua-PC's has made a good move. Its a case people want, and the water-cooling set-up is easy to use, and pre-installed...

    Lian-Li cases (for me at least) are a lot cleaner looking, have better heat dissipation and have excellent build quality compared to any other case I've used.

    coolermaster Wavemasters / pratorians are close, but otherwise i think Doug has hit the nail on the head.

    having said that, they do seem a tad expensive.

    This looks like a good upgrade for my Yeong Yang, as it's run out of room for any other hardware - LianLi seem to have used the space well.

    I love the fact that case manutfacturers are slowly working in conjunction with cooling companies (water) makes life a lot easier.

    I love this case but I love my mountain mods case more however I do see this case being used in a future project or to house my current case build computer parts when they get out dated and I upgrade everything in it and move it over to the lian li.

    I do agree with doug comments about Lian Li they are pricely but I think its justified for the quality.

    I don't get the point... I'd say the one who pays the 400€ for a case like that must have a major fetish on large things. I like the small Lian Lis, but that is simply too freaking large for any purpose! The quality seems to be lianli-grade, but the outlooks.. No no.
