I had a COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942 but it got melted in the fire and I can not aford a $200 case ,But I need one with 8 expansion slots so my video cards will fit.Not that I need three GTX 470's but I have them and they still work perfect.I guess i could try to sell them ,but all my boxes got wet and were trashed.I wish the GTX 560TI could be TRI -SLI.I know at stock speed they run close and the GTX 560 winning quiet a few .But my GTX 470's will do 750/1800 at stock volts and 825/1900 at 1.087v I would think it would be faster ,I know a GTX 560 will do 950/2200 some do more.Plus the 560 is cooler and quieter and uses less power.
Anyway back to the case does LIAN LI make good cases .all the reviews I have seen ,say they are built good.42313
It looks nice and look like it id build solid .It has a fan in front and rear and two 140mm.It has a clear side ,I may cut a fan hole in it ,to cool my video cards better,It really how much clearance I have from my CPU heatsink.I may put a 200mm in it if it will fit.

Lian Li made some of the best ever. They are lacking in innovation now days but they are still quality if at times a little over priced.

I want this BTW http://www.lian-li.com/v2/en/product/product06.php?pr_index=346&cl_index=14&sc_index=44&ss_index=101

You want the Toy. In there new cases they have made it where over a 11 inch card can fit and it has 8 expansion slots so you can put a TRI-SLI system in with no problems.It has other cool features that I would'nt even had thought about with the harddrive tray being able to turn 90 degrees.All thumb screws for the mother board ,but you can use a phillips srew driver.I like that it has filters on everthing something my haf-X 932 was missing.they have cool names for the cases Dragon Lord K Series.I got it on sale for $79 with free shipping.It look almost as good as the HAF-X 942 for $199 that I had before it burned.I just could not afford to buy another one .Money is tight now.

My house burned down and my car burn up too.It was my grandmother old house and I did not know she had dropped her insurance .So I lost about 30 thousand in my computer ,my $1500plasma 52 inch ,Onkyo $700 reciever and around $3500 worth of polkAudio speakers My new Logitech G25 well I just used once.Plus hundreds of games and DVD's My computer that was in my Coolermaster HAF-x 932,my blu-ray front pannel was melted along with the front of my HAF case.Everthing in it was black but believe it or not I cleaned all the black off my three GTX 470's My four harddrives and even my OCZ memory was black ,some of the slots where I put the memory in was a little melted and even my Gigabyte X58-UD5 and i7-920 still works fine I figured my coolermaster 1100 watt power supply was gone since the corg was burnt off ,but I put another cord on it and it fired right up.Still runs at 4.2gig and the 6gigs of DDR3 1600 still works fine at 7-7-7-21-1T.Even my GTX 470's did'nt lose a step they will still work at 825/1950.MY new car was total but I had insurance on it .OH well at least no one died.Life go on ,just a lot broker.

This is a pretty nice case to cost so little ,it holds my three GTX 470's just fine.The quality is great on this case ,most cases that cost $79 comes no where close to the quality build of this case.
