Mmmm the HPTX Tank will fit an SR-2, might be an interesting alternative to the new Lian-Li's coming out if it reviews well...

Which Lian Li are you referring to? The PC-V2120? I haven't heard all that many good things about it when it comes to putting an SR-2 in it.

The new Z70 and the updated PC-P80NXW.

Some pics; Lian Li showcases three new cases

Decent pics of the Z60 and Z70 Bild Lian Li PC-Z70 (10/18) - ComputerBase

Hexus had a quick video of Lian-Li at CeBit Lian Li previews a range of upcoming chassis - HEXUS.tv

From what I've read the VC-2120 dosn't have enough airflow for me...

The PC-Z70 looks pretty damn snazzy. Although I can see it being rather pricey as well. Even still I may have to upgrade from my FT01BW to this. I could easily turn my SR-2 in to another file server instead or just running folding@home alone.

Did you see this thread by aerial over at Xtreme New Lian Li cases for 2011 - XtremeSystems Forums

Has some nice pics of the new cases including a pic of the new P80n with a black interior and a side window called the P80NXW, that pricetag is gonna hurt.

Like the fact that the PSU is now a bottom mount, it's now classified as HPTX capable and has USB3.

He also found some links to the Lian Li product pages that aren't linked from the main index yet including the one for the P80N Lian Li Industrial Co., Ltd..

Honestly I am not a fan of the P80 at all, however if the Z70 is under $400 it very well be my next case.

I agree with you on the Z70 looking better but I'm just wondering how those side mounted fans will do with regards to interior airflow especially with the hdd backplane in the way.

Now if they release a version with a black interior and a window like the P80NXW I might not care...
