I'm guessing they acquired a license from Lian-Li to use their design for the case...
I just want to double check, will the tubing that I chose work with my barbs and such?

You may want to also check out the moutain mod cases ncix. these cases are awesome. I plan to get one this summer so i can water cool my gaming rig. I believe some of theri models allow you install the PA120.3 Internally Not exactly elegant but pretty cool looking. Plus the paint job is powder coat which is awesome.

Some models of the MM cases have the internals designed to fit the exact same rad (PA120.3).

Truthfully, I don't really find the mountain mods cases all that attractive. The whole cube thing doesn't really sit well with me...

Now that everyone has their hate on for me since I admitted to not like MM cases that much, can you guys recommend me some good fans for the radiator?
I was thinking Noctua, Yate loon or S-flex, on a fan speed controller....

The Tagan Black Pearl is a Lian-Li. It is essentially a Lian-Li OEM sold to Tagan. Tagan does NOT make their own cases.

Closest case to the Black Pearl is the V2000

Thanks for the info - there were too many similarities. Looking at the pics, the build quality does not look to be on par with a Lian-Li case though.
