Lian Li Cases
 
Does anyone know of a Canadian Lian Li distributor that offers decent prices. The only retailers I could find offer these cases at outrageous prices.

Premier Computer Canada

They are in Toronto (Etobicoke actually) and they seem to stock a lot of the older ones for pretty cheap, but might also be able to special-order some of the newer ones for you for reasonable prices...

The definitely have a lot of the old ones and small cases for decent prices but a newer full-tower is going to cost. Of course Lian-Li is expensive for a reason! Good luck :thumb:

Exactly......

Nice clean lines, brushed aluminum, highest possible build quality, as well as niceties like motherboard trays.

The aluminum on my older "6 series" Lian-Li is at least twice as thick (I'd guess closer to 3X ) as "lesser" cases.

First they are aluminum, the brushed outside looks phenomenal compared to cases like the HAFS and 900s of this world. There is anti-vibration on everything, mobo tray, side panels, hdd racks, psu slots (You can mount the psu on the top or the bottom or run two if you want). Mine came with 6 120mm fans (Intakes have filters). They come with different side panel options (different window types) and also top panels for dual or triple rads. Some come with hot-swap racks for raid arrays and you can also buy them as extras. You can get bezels for your 5.25 and 3.5 drives that match the case to ghost them among many other little things that just complete the package! It's really pretty much about the build quality. I have owned many cases and they can't compare. Even the place that I went to get mine powdered coated where impressed since they had done quite a few cases before. To me it looks like a serious piece of equipment rather than the cheesy looking cases most manufactures release.


Here is mine and I love it!
