Silver interiors in this day and age should be classed as a war crime, and those responsible prosecuted and put on trial.

I disagree, not all internal parts of a case need to have a painted finish. If the fit and finish of the unpainted pieces is still of a good standard, it's perfectly fine to have bare metal.

Also remember that this is a prototype. Do Lian Li need to go to the effort of painting it if they are still sorting out the internal design?

I guess so if it puts every one off before they've even launched it.

My god Lian Li... When will you learn to paint the internals of your cases? I swear they're staying irrelevant on purpose.

I agree as a prototype the internals don't need to be painted. Aside from that, I am wondering how the airflow will work in this case. I think its supposed to draw air in through the bottom side panel into the bottom radiator and exhaust out the top.

I do like the inverted Motherboard design. Yet I question from this set of photos how much radiator you can fit in the top. I only see the two fans, yet perhaps there is a third up there and I am not picking it up. I also think that depending on the offset of the fan/radiator mounting, putting a radiator in the top is going to give you a wiring headache for connections that are typically placed at the lower edge of the motherboard

I would love to see more space above the motherboard.

I trust Lian Li that when this is a finished product, fit and finish will be excellent. All of their High end cases are really well done. I personally am thinking about using the PC-O9 case in my next build

Have you actually seen Lian Li's offerings? Most of their cases are anodized black. Maybe five have natural aluminum.
