Lian-Li x500

Coming end of July sometime.

Some pics within the linky, and I seen some pics from `other` sources, look pretty darn sweet to me.

Rumor of about $350. With the bigger version a few hundred more perhaps.

I don't mind that at all actually. I keep thinking water-cooled server every time I look at it.

Yeah not bad I don't like the front air intake though. The front intake should allow enough cool air in and remain reasonably quiet but it'll show up and attract the dust like the d.i.c.k.e.n.s (overzealous swear filter rofl). Those elongated flute things on the front just look a little weird. Plus the case window makes it look a little, dare I say it....Thermaltake-ish .

Nah it's not that bad mate I had an Antec 160WP that had those elongated flutes (they were vertical though) and the dust loved to gather there in abundance. There are just a few design 'issues' that stick out at me on first appearance. I do like this though as it allows for a virtually uninterrupted supply of cool air over your hard drives.



Some cheaper case manufacturers have the swiss cheese metal effect in front of the fan that adds to overall case noise.

Damn all them cases look very good for cooling.

Now more people will have to stop to think which will be better for their needs.
