This case looks great but 500 dollars is just too much for me. I could do 300, but that's it.

Question: Since this is a 500 dollar case, are the stock fans any good? I would expect something more then your typical sleeve bearing affair.

Been looking for just the right case for the HTPC, I was thinking of using my main lIAN lI tyr pc2000 and picking up a tyr pc2000F but this might fit the bill, looks a little smaller footprint than the 2000 and drops to 120mm fans rather than the 140mm of the pc2000//2000f.

The lilly 140mm FANS in my 2000 are whisper quiet only time I hear anything from my case is when the cpu/gpu fans go up gaming, wicked airflow cases.

fOR A LONG TIME i SAID THE SAME THING 5 BILLS FOR A CASE BUT HONESTLY GUYS THE BUILD QUALITY AND CONSTRUCTION ARE WORTH IT NOT TO MENTION BEING ABLE TO TEAR DOWN 99% OF THE CASE WITH JUST A DRIVER, NO DRILLING OUT RIVETS AND REDOING THEM AFTER.


ARRRG Fing Caplocks.


Bad Grover

Dont think they are a watercooling case even though they are predrilled and grommet for tubes.
