Im looking to buy a new case because I hate my current one. Is this a good brand and good case?

When buying a case, you have to chose what you like the look of the most.

looks good, its simular to mine. except mine has a 120mm fan in the front, back and top. but lian-li cases are all good and well built.

Lian li is one of the best brands in terms of cases so you chose a winner. I personally don't like the look of them so much but they have great air flow and plenty of room for wire management and more components.

Well, I ordered one two days ago and it's on its way, if that gives you any idea what I think about it.

If you like, you can wait a couple days and I'll post all sorts of pictures of it and tell you anything you want to know about it.

I got an X-Alien, I love it, it is a server case so I have plenty of room and it has awesome air flow in it even with crappy wire management.

That would be cool if you could because newegg is out and its not going to be available until the 29th of this month. I think im going to get it because I dont like my current Centurion case.

Thats similar to this one, but this uses only 120mm fans and thus is quieter and more air flow:

I can vouch for this case cause i have one and its fantastic...also bigger than the one you listed there...


Its also in stock!
