Judging by the results... People are pretty split on their opinion here.

I don't like the look of either case. I'd take a Thermaltake Xaser over both any day.. Anyway out of those two, I voted for the Coolermaster. That one at least has a solid clean look. The Lian-Li case just looks crappy. Extremely bland look which I despise.

Nope...still thinking about it. And I won't decide until I know for sure if I got the nFORCE3 Ultra board I asked for for my birthday. That's on 4/2, so there's still over 2 weeks to decide.

I thought BTX was an Intel only thing? I haven't heard anything about AMD doing it, and from what I've heard of the first BTX boards...they weren't impressive. :-\

Libs VS Cons? Heh!

I'd go Lian Li of the two.

I am actually using the Thermaltake Xaser III in blue and it is built extremely well. Weighs about a ton, though. Seven 80m case fans, two 80m ps fans and the CPU/NB/GPU fans running full blast, yet it's so sturdily built that you can barely hear the thing.

I really wish that both, or at least ONE, had a top exhaust fan. That would make the choice so much easier
