My System Specs

Default

I really like the design of the Lian Li A70B case, but it's a huge turn off that there is no top-panel fan. And then there's the $250 price tag.

I ended up picking up the Antec 1200 case from the Dell sale earlier this month for $150 only. It's not the best looking case, but functionality and space is TOP.

You realize for an extra $50 you can get the top?

And how on earth can you complain about a lian li price tag?

The case it 100x better than anything antec can ever put out.

^^Very true, Antec is no match for Lian Li, their chassis are liked world wide, in fact enaberif and I were having a conversation the other day, he was telling he got this and that, lots of stuff.. I told him you get what you pay for, and he agreed... Lian Li's do come at a cost, but they give you exactly what you need..

Since Sugar mentioned about replacement tops, anybody know if you can replacement tops for Lian Li V1000 series with pre-drilled holes for radiator mounting?

Ok looking around again, and its either the A77 or the A7010 with my. Talked to Linus and he is going to try and source a side panel for me with a window, and I will see if they make such a top panel. If not, I am good with a dremel and will just order a MCR320 rad grill from Petras made my IandH. He makes some REALLY nice stuff Petra's Tech Shop

Actually those prices are reasonable. But they dont have anything for the A7010, which is the one I am definitely leaning towards. Lian Li has on on its site, so Linus will check into the pricing for me!
