From what I hear, this is an awesome case- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...119-042&depa=1

It will support the upcoming BTX standard, and it also cools well. Only downside is that it is heavy. Other than that it looks awesome.

Here is the case I have and I love it- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...156-142&depa=1

It comes with 3 fans, but it has 7 fan mounts, 4 intake fans, 2 exhaust andone side not including the fan that the included 420watt psu comes with.

i meant if you replace either the 120mm or the 92mm with something that has a lil bit more airflow u cud get a lot better kooling .. i replaced the 120mm with an Antec SmartCool 120mm Fan n a Vantec Tornado 92mm replacement

Lian Li look ordinary at first, but they really have good modding potential - if you get a Thermaltake, you won't be able to mod very much

I have a lian li case and i love it. It looks so clean and smooth and everything fits togeather like a charm. Plus the whole case is aluminum so it cools really well. I can actually touch the outside of the case and its cold. This thing keeps my pc very cool and still keeps its style. I personally am not a fan of the super crazy skull lightning bolt fire light up neon cases
