I had a look at this case and it is HUGE. Too big for
me but it is a really nice case. Newegg.com - IN WIN Dragon Rider Black 1.0 - 0.8mm SECC Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Sent it back and got this one instead and like it very well. Really like the hot swap. Newegg.com - IN WIN BUC Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 12V, PSII Size, Not Included Power Supply

Hope this helps

Remember, I did say "jury-rig" :P

You had your rad "jury-rig" in your old case, I'm saying you will have to do it again. Just so you dont get your case in then start scratching your head as to where your going to put the rad

This is the updated version of my case, it's just begging to be modded

I like Lian Li cases - except they don't have removable, washable air filters. They are pricey but that's because they tend to be exceptionally well made with decent gauge sheet metal and reinforced corners - essential with soft aluminum.

My Lian Li case is a joke.

From day one the left side panel would not go on without pieces of metal being scratched out by one of the rivets holding the case together. Slowly but surely all 4 crappy feet came off, and many of the edges aren't particularly smooth.

It's horribly made. In hind-site i wouldn't pay more than 50 for it, but it cost over 3x that.

Wow. I have heard of Lian Li cases being damaged by lousy boxes and rough handling during shipping but nothing like you describe. Bad rivets and rough edges is really disturbing - and disappointing. Remember the model number?

My case, the PC-A70B, came with removable, washable filters.

I built my new system a few months ago with the Corsair 650D and have no regrets. Its considered mid tower but its huge, more than enough room. I have two full size gpu's running.

Also, Cable management is a breeze
