    I've had the V-2120x for several years and am quite happy with it. This one looks like an updated version -- nothing revolutionary, but a "refresh." Reply

    This case is about as tall as the big towers way back then (and I'm actually about to dispose one of those soon...) however it is very pricey, not sure many people are going to fork $500 for that especially since there're some far cheaper alternatives even from Lian Li themselves available and even many alternatives if you don't exactly need space for 11 drives and 10 PCIe cards...

    Yeah, they seem to be stretching a bit with the price for this one. It's considerably more than they asked for the monstrous PC-D8000 which made for a really nice home server case with lots of room for cooling all the drives. Reply

    This has a strange 80s wibe to it, probably due to the stark black/bare metal contrast. Reply

    I'm not really sure what market Lian Li is going after with this design. Giant cases are popular with the high end watercooling crowd; but this case doesn't look suitable for i without heavy modding. There doesn't appear to be enough room above the mobo to install anything on the top; and it doesn't look like there's enough clearance to install double rads on the front and the bottom at the same time.

    I don't get the entire Lian Li hype. Ok some like their design, I don't. But functionally they are lackluster especially for the price. I have an Phantek Enthoo Primo with a full custom waterloop inside. It was cheaper then the Lian Li and is built with water support in mind. I have two 480mm Radiators inside (One Monsta and one 30mm) with enough room for another 240mm if I need it. What exactly is so exciting about Lian Li cases? Reply

    Personally, it's that they're not embarrassing in an office. I build and look after a dozen or so computers at work. My criteria is: Not crappy to work with, looks appropriate in a work environment, and fits what I want to fit (or think I might have to). If it's not Lian Li, it's some mini itx fanless box like hdplex that I use. Way, way too many cases are aimed at 12 year olds IMO. I'm thinking of buying this for a second server build. Reply
