    Yeh it's good to know this is well moderated (although I should have chose not to respond also!) and it did take me to Joe's great article, so it wasn't all bad :)

    I'm still keeping an eye out for any more news/reviews and a UK price/dealer and will be sure to post my finds on here as soon as I do!

    I've taken to modding my daughters pc now while I wait for more news on this case! (itchy, nerd like fingers and all that):dremel:

    I can't believe the reviewer had problems with the drive mounts.

    Too stupid to read the directions, or just too stupid?

    Actually the case didn't come with any directions and the screws and grommets were all either loose or unmarked. It makes it difficult to realise you have to take off both side panels and slot the drive in from the far side, locking it down - a method which is vastly different to any I've seen regularly before and which doesn't seem to offer any improvment.

    There's no need for that. Throw abuse at staff (or members) again and you can take a break.

    Argh, I need a new chassis and don't know whether this is 'the one'.

    Not sure about the side panels going out like that. Can think it would get annoying, like when you try to fit it on the end of your desk.

    I know Lian Li's look nice but substance over form should be the thinking behind a good case. But I need a nice light aluminium case :) my P180 is so heavy :(.

    And what happened to the forums? Since I was last here they've got all... shiney...

    Thought I'd resurrect this thread a bit...

    I finally decided to go for this case (£135 from Kustom PCs) along with the Lian Li EX-23N HDD Bay which holds 3 hard discs in 2 CD rom bays with an 80mm fan on which will leave the 2 front 120mm fans air-way free, where I might add watercooling at a later date...

    I'll post some snaps when it arrives and I have it all set up (making the most of the cable management.. eh Joe :D).


    Here's another buyers review of it:

    My turn... I just ordered a PC-B25 for my upcoming build. Going to be a little bit before I order everything else but I couldn't resist. :) Coming from a PC-71 (going to turn that into a file server).

    Anybody have any updated thoughts?

    The hard drive cage is rather flimsy, other than that I'm pleased. :) The rest of the components come in tomorrow and Friday, looking forward to putting everything together come Saturday.

    Thank you. :)

    I've got a few... they're not very good, but it should give you at least an idea. Any questions, feel free.

    With LiLi's, you get what you pay for though. Well-worth it.
