NO! Just no.

Thats everything you don't expect from a Lian Li and the price is stupid! No doubt that it's really well built but its fugly.

Awful.... I usually appreciate when a company does something different but this is a far cry from the elegance we are use to see from lian li.... looks like a robot from a 70 sci-fi show.

lian li have obviously tried to do something very different with this one. The fact of the matter is though while the design may look great at a tech show etc who would actually want one of these in their room?

That was a first look and announcement, this was a review - the scores at the end are a dead giveaway.

Earth to bit-tech, all resolutions are 4:3 or wider - how the f*** are we supposed to garner anything useful from those 3000 pixel high graphs? "learn2landscape" or atleast an option, please!

Are you some kind of idiot? You'd have the same problem in landscape except now sidescrolling is required instead of vertical scrolling. Not to mention that webpages are generally designed to fit within a certain width to accommodate lower resolution monitors.

Its a problem, flaming me helps how?

The drives aren't actually "hot-swap-able" due to the fact that the 3.3V line is missing. From the pictures it looks like the "Hot-Swap" cages are powered by a regular molex (as they are in their other cases). Sure they are easy to remove but not truly hot-swap able...

You can't expect all that data to fit into one small easy to read graph. Landscaping it wouldn't make any difference apart from pulling the whole site out of line and making you side scroll like it was the 80s.

I agree with you that it is impossible to compare, but there is no need to get all sweary about it.

Maybe an idea is having a check box system, so we can select which cases to compare. Or even just a set of drop down boxes with a row or column linked to it, and then you can choose up to X amount of cases.

I.e. you select case A, B, C, and D from the drop downs and they are displayed in a chart. I think another popular review site does something similar with a huge database of stuff.

I'm happy with my 3 year old Akasa Eclipse case.

Eclipse is still my favourite case of all time. I'm thinking of moving my gaming rig into a CM HAF932 and keeping the eclipse for a workstation which I've been meaning to build for ages.

well, I like the color ;)

Nice review once again! I like the anodized blue, and how it matches throughout the case. I wouldn't even mind the shape, as it is innovative, but at that price and the pokey thing on top kinda ruins it. If only other manufacturers would start at the very least painting the inside of the chassis black or something better than the generic gray I would be much happier.

On the last page, paragraph 4, it cites the intakes being 120mm when they've been listed as 140mm's the entire review. Just a heads up. :)

My eyes just glaze over the thermal results graphs and I read the note at the bottom for review i'm just reading. If I was going to buy a case I'd love to have those graphs so I can see, in detail, where things are in respect to the similar performing cases which may be different prices and might influence my purchase decisions.

I know that their similar heat sink graphs helped me choose a heat sink that was cheaper and better performing then the one I was initially thinking of getting.
