Default Does LIAN LI make good cases

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.Click image for larger version

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...4&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.

Default Re: Does LIAN LI make good cases

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.
