My System Specs

Default Lian-Li PC-8N + Spare Parts Build

I put this rig together using old parts so that my parents can have a desktop for daily usage. It was my first time purchasing a Lian-Li case, and I must say I am very impressed by the quality product I received for $99 on sale at Canada Computers... I was debating between this case and the CM 690 II but went with the Lian-Li because it has a much more elegant/clean look to it.

Lian-Li PC-8N case
Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+
Zalman 9700 CPU Cooler
2x2gb OCZ PC2-6400 800mhz SLI-Ready RAM
BFG 7950 GT OC 256mb
WD 500gb Caviar SE16 7200rpm 16mb cache

The case came with rubber washers for the tool-less HDD mounting system to absorb vibrations. You can really tell that a lot of thought was put into designing this case. It is very very light but feels sturdy (although the front panel snaps off a little too easily for my liking).

I really like this case, but I wish the cable management was a little better (some holes to allow cables to be ran behind the mobo tray would have been nice), but the case is perfect for a simple build like this one.

It seems that 1 of the front USB ports doesn't work...I will have to look into that.
