Default My Lian LAN is done

I hate working in small cases...

But buddies & i do gaming nights usually every weekend, sometimes it's Wii/XBox360/PS3, other times it's PC gaming.

They just built some little MiniATX AMD systems based around this J&W in tiny cases for moving around for our little LAN parties, since moving around a massive tower really isn't fun or very doable, so i had to do the same...

Okay, not quite the same, as i wanted to make a more powerful system around some existing parts i had, & yeah, it's not nearly as tiny.

The AMD duallies they put into their mini PCs really can't handle 1080p .mkv content, & as handling that + multi-core aware games like UT3 were what i had in mind, i went with my old CPU/GPU i wasn't using, as well as other parts i had.

Specs:
Lian Li PC-V350 (black, of course)
Asus P5E-VM HDMI
Q6700 (had already)
Noctua NH-C12P
2x2 GB Mushkin Redline DDR2-1000
8800 GTX (had already)
Corsair HX520 (had already)
LG GH22NS30 DVDRW
Maxtor 500 GB (had already)
Vista Ultimate x64 (had already)

This little beast in a box will be handling LAN gaming duties, as well as HTPC use, as it's hooked up to my projector in the living room.
Yes, i took some pics.

Derriere


Cooler is massive for such a small case


Horrible cooler art by BFG


Brushed aluminum baby...nicer & way lighter than all my other cases


It's hooked up for projector action (not final placement )

Damn that's a fine looking build!!!

What fans have you got pulling air in, and what are your internal temps like under load?

I'm in love! The only thing I wonder about is fans, that back one looks like it could use some help by cutting out the grill and putting something less restrictive, and is your heatsink fan pulling air off the Thermalright into the PSU and out the back, otherwise they would be fighting against each other. At least that's what I'm getting from that picture. Do tell.

If I am not mistaken that most if not all Lian Li features a removable motherboard tray.
