Now that is a unique case. Awesome job Lian-Li. They're killing it recently.

Interesting idea. I am just not the fan of those enclosed areas top and bot. PC-O11 was nice, and open, and all that see trough glass. Here they put big glass panels and block them off with metal shrouds. It kinda ruins the point of having glass. Thumbs up for dual vertical GPU.

I'm more of a sucker for soft curves and rounded edges, like the Corsair 570x. This case is better in every other regard, though. 2 vertical GPU mounts, Lian Li's design team just jumped from 1990 to 2020.

I'm leaning myself far out of the window and try to predict that nobody at Lian-Li thought about that

I think it looks very nice as well and I can only repeat what the others said. I don't like that it doesn't support a fan in the rear, so you're quite likely forced into watercooling, which, on the other hand, isn't that bad at all. I'm hoping to see some custom builds very soon!

I just hate their pricing. If you thought Corsair ramped up prices, these guys take it to another level.

Their most basic desk case for example (something you can make yourself) costs £1400... That is ridiculous. And while I love this case, i can't see how £379 is good value.

Lian-Li have always, always been historically expensive. But you get what you pay for. Their cases are built like Alluminium tanks. You won't find many cases on par with their build quality, save for maybe CaseLabs.. who unsurprisingly, also have a price premium

Having owned both, you definitely get your money's worth. The fit and finish is just unrivaled.
