I don't think they have a storefront. Only a pick up counter.

Hmm really Sky? They are more expensive than CIPC and Microbytes when it comes down to components.

And they take a WHILE to prepare you order.

Oh? I have always had my order filled in a few hours for pick up. As for MB, I checked on a few components and MB seems quite a bit more expensive.

I got my case yesterday and i am extremely happy. Easiest case i have put together yet, wiring is really nice. The fans are nice and quite, the blue LED's are a nice touch. I added 2 blue cold cathodes and it looks pretty decent.

Overall extremely nice case for $110 after price matching.

I used the 12" 2 pack from NCIX and price matched it cheaper. But i better add that the 12" cold cathodes won't fit between the drive bays and back of the case because there is only about 10.5 - 11" of space.

I had to put the cold cathodes underneath the lip that the side panel sits on, on the bottom and the front of the case.

I would think yes.
Anyway, nice review. I'm deciding between this and the Antec 902. This case seems like its better than the Antec overall, but I've read in another review that the quality is not really good, as the reviewer's sample unit got a cracked top. Now he might've gotten a dud or rough transportation, but the fact remains that Lancool is Lian-li, shouldn't the quality of the case be perfect?

I'm not here to complain about the case , I'm just looking to buy the best case out of these two cases that I like. (I love the 1200 though, but it is way too much money :( anyone wants to part with theirs 1200 )

Evilyeti, I thought the blue lights from the fans on top would be a bit bright, I really like the lights from your case!!!
