Good idea, Might i suggest a Thermaltake case? yes, most of them are a bit expensive but they are very reliable.

Yeah Lian-Li is not huge on exhaust fans, although my LL case does have a top exhaust fan which should compensate well. Cut a hole if you really want to, but if you have a good heatsink and fan you should be alright until you OC it.

Looks pretty darn nice to me, good work!

I argue with people on internet message boards.

thanx m8. also the heatsink and fan is an arctic cooling-copper silent 2L it keeps my cpu at around 41c but think thats also because of the cool air flowing through the case and with regards to cutting holes in the case im not that confident in myself to start doing that lol knowing my luck it will just destroy the case and i wil end up needing a new one.......although that wouldnt be too bad would it hehehe lol thanx for replies aswel guys.
