I have a Lian-Li PC-V1000 case
its design gives you heaps of room, although the physical dimensions aren't much bigger than a normal case
plus it allows for very good airflow, so 2 120mm fans are more than enough for it

lol i think i know which one i would choose between. No offense apokalipse but that isnt exactly the nicest looking case in the world. does that case even come with fans? the thermaltake has 3 already in it. 2 x 120mm and 1 x 80mm.

yes, it comes with 2 x 120mm fans.
and it has a lot of airflow, even with only 2 fans

it's functionality that's most important.

yeah of course its funcionality but come on you want a case that atleast looks the part. You could say you got all the best hardware in the case so let the case do some justice to it. The thermaltake for the third time has 3 fans so thats even better.

the Lian-Li case doesn't need 3 fans. its very well designed, and a lot of airflow gets through with only the 2 120mm fans.

plus, it is quite easy to work in compared to most other cases aswell

so what makes you so sure that the lian-li is better than the thermaltake. This probably doesnt need 3 fans but it gives you 3 so thats better. just cos the lian-li has 2 doesnt automatically mean it must have better airflow. You got to admit though the thermaltake does look a thousand times better.
