    Any chance you could chase Lian-Li about the xbox 360 case? Release date/prices/is that X on the side removable?

    It's all still prototype stuff - nothing is final.

    But they must have some kind of ballpark date? 08? 09?

    Wow, Rich. Well done.

    I like MSI's 'Ride the Digital Rainbow' roffl.

    Dolby's LED TV's sound very cool. It's something I'm certainly wanting to see with my own eyes. I wonder, with the new Lian Li cases due out, whether the prices will drop on the V1000 and V2000?

    I just love some of the new Lian Li cases. They look really good!

    But what's up with the jumpers on the Biostar board? Jumpers are just SO 90's! :duh:

    Lian-Li making a 360 case is an interesting Idea but with the the unreliabilty of the 360 I wonder how many people would buy one since it would void the warrenty. Then again the case is really aimed at enthusiasts who are more than likely have a few notes to burn..

    Well, If the LiLi X2000 Case is tall but not that deep ill have it.. Tho that depends on the asking price per se.

    the akasa case has been around for years (minus the frontend) its a great case but could do with a fair amount of tweaking before it becomes an excellent case

    great coverage.

    yeah PSU is a high margin business, everyone seems to be jumping into it. great for consumer.

    Lian Li tall case is a extremely attractive but will cost a couple of kidneys :)

    Cheers :D

    The new Vs will replace the current ones I think - end of line stock may go down in price.

    Yakyb - It's been tweaked for CeBit, certain features have been improved even if the look remains the same.

    Doug - I just emailed LiLi, will let you know if there's anything to report.

    Good point, but then how do you explain the lead that plugs into the other side to feed the PSU it's juice?

    So, pron pages popping up everywhere then :)
