My System Specs

Default Lian-Li PC-60FW

Hey guys,

I just ran into this case online, and I noticed that no-one here had posted about it.
For the price point it looks like quite the case. The only places I can find this case is Asia and in the states. NCIX wont carry it as they need to order 500+ for some reason...

Am I going to have to bite the bullet and pay for it from the states?

I like that case too...

Performance-PCs has it but shipping would be a killer and from UPS so you'd get hit with duty. To go with USPS it costs even more up front.

I'm hoping Canada Computers might get some in since they seem to have a bunch of Lian-Li cases.

I'm tossing back and forth between this case... and the PC-7B (which will have to be modded.... cable management in that case is disgusting

Did you put in a product request over at the NCIX forums?

I've been looking at the LIAN-LI PC-K7B...NCIX carries them for $115. with a price match it goes down to $95...I'm just worried about the return policy. it says I can only exchange for the same product...so what I'd like to know is I can fit in a 4870X2?

I like that case... as well as the PC7B Plus, but I'm concerned about my crossfire setup and the HDD Cage... does anyone know if it can be mounted similar to that of the CM690?

I'm just curious, why does NCIX need a 500 unit order to get them and a place like Performance-PCs has stock of them and for some reason I doubt they ordered 500 since they don't seem like an overly large company.

I posted that on the NCIX forums too, but might as well ask here as well.

I'm honestly thinking of just biting the bullet and getting it from the states... nothing else comes close to what I'm looking for.
Its a shame that dude at ncix is being an ass, but hey... there's always going to be one of those around lol
