Looks nice with the handles. The aesthetics of lian li cases just can't be beat in my opinion.

Looks great. You end up purchasing the case from Newegg? I've been waiting to see if it would pop up at NCIX or CC.

Thanks :) Yep got it from Newegg.
I've asked Lian Li about the optional fan top shroud but they are ignoring my email.
I've ordered the tooless pci bracket, should be getting that soon.

I assume those are MNPC handles. Did you just bolt them to the top panel or are they attached to the internal frame? I was thinking about putting some on a new build of mine...

The case handles are from mountain mods (These pulls offer a wide 5 inches from centre to centre of the rods and 1.4 inches of clearance for most any size hand. The rod itself is .375 inches in diameter giving no flex under heavy loads. Use 8/32nd screws to fasten.) they are mounted directly and only on the top panel and fit perfectly so they don't hit the frame. The case comes with 4 small screws that you put around the top fan mounts, they align with mounting holes directly on the frame so it will give the panel more rigidity.
