    Sadly it's still 20L. SFX PSUs only with some mATX mountings would have surely been much more interesting.

    That actually looks really quite nice (not from your screenshot, sadly, but from the pictures on Lian Li's site). I have my doubts about airflow and cooling with just the roof panel fan mounts, though. I wonder if they could do a non-windowed side panel with fan mounts, similar to the NCase M1. There also does seem to be quite a bit of room at the front of the case that's not doing much of anything, and 20l is a bit big for my tastes, but overall not a bad effort really.

    How did they manage to make this so big.

    I did this design a couple years ago, which is basically the same internal layout, but with a fullsize ATX PSU, and in only 12 liters instead.
    Add another inch or two in depth to make room for those extra long GPUs and it's still 5 liters less.
