Which Lian-Li case and a Watercooling dilemma
While the Gigabyte Poseidon managed to strike a good balance between performance and portability, the time has come to stop risking my rig at Lan parties and create a dedicated LAN rig and have a nice one at home. Most of the LAN's I goto end up with a few drunk people, and there have been some cases where things have been spilled and caused damage.
I have been looking at Lian-Li cases for a while now, and have decided to go with one over a Silverstone or any other line of cases on the market, mainly because of the build quality, cooling performance and looks. I dont like flashy 'in your face' cases, I want to sleep in the same room as my computer and not be kept awake by the noise or lights. It would be nice to have a roomy case which would allow for water cooling in the future.
I was looking for an E-ATX case like the; V1200B or V2000, but am still undecided.
Simple (ie. no LED's and side panels)
Large interior (For Cable management and the possibility of Water cooling in the future)
Any thoughts or opinions?
I know there are a few Lian-Li owners out there, please give me a hand in my search for the perfect case.:canadianwave:
Tagan A+ !! Its a unknown but cool case
Are you talking about the Black Pearl?
It looks like a pretty awesome case, comparable to Lian-Li in terms of build quality by the sounds of it:thumb:
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll have to add that to my maybe list.
Well if the main plan is for it to be lan luggable a full sized server case would be a major PITA to lug around.
I guess my rambling made more sence in my head:doh:
I'm splitting into 2 rigs, my Lan rig and Home rig. My lan rig will be in a m-ATX case with lower ended components, therefore making it more expendable then my home system, which will be in a case that will not move.
The Lian-Li is going to be for my Home computer, so size doesn't really matter, just as long as it does not take up an entire room...
This V1200 would fit my bill. It's my next build.
At first I wasn't really planning on water cooling, but NCIX is starting to convince me otherwise.
Would it be worth it to go for a less expensive case and water cool rather then a good high airflow case?:help:
It looks as though I need some more income... Donations?:bleh:
After watching the video on NCIX, water cooling is becoming quite intriguing. But I can't afford both a simple wc setup and a nice E-ATX Lian-Li case.
Is it worth going for watercooling instead of a bigger case?
What mid price case (preferably Lian-Li) would allow me to have a good water cooling setup as well as enough airflow to cool the not water cooled components?
Any thoughts or opinions will be greatly appreciated!
Watercooling I find is really only for people who want to push the limits of their cpu. For people who don't do a lot with their computer water cooling to me is a waste.
