    I opened the box, the brushed aluminum face beamed at me. The LIAN-LI had arrived.

    I slid it out of the box. It was exactly like the picture. It was feather-lite. RIGID ! The quality is impeccable. I tally up the exploded view & list of parts. It is comprised of 217 pieces. There are 3 fans and a 3 position switch to adjust the speed. I twist the thumbscrews off the back and slide the Mobo rack out. Awesome. Inside is is so clean and shiny, I debate whether or not to eat my next meal in there, but decide against it.

    This is the best case I have ever owned. I ponder going operational now or wait for the DDR ATHLON....

    I'm glad to hear you are so happy with the new case. In your opinion is the high quality of the case worth the extra cost?

    Here is a pic:




    OOPS !

    Here is a complete article that should get your tongue wagging:


    http://www.dansdata.com/pc60.htm

    Cost: Normal cases w/300w PS are about $100 CDN, I paid $255 CDN for the LIAN-LI w/300w PS.
    To compare, a 1 Ghz TBIRD is $300 CDN and a 1.2 Ghz TBIRD is $455 CDN.(mar3-01) Whether you buy the 1 or 1.2 depends on whether you can afford it or whether you think its worth it. In my opinion the LIAN-LI was worh the extra $155 to have something of a higher-quality. It is built the way you would expect it to be built.




    If your not a fan of the Pro-Aluminum Look then I suggest you stick with plastic over tin.

    Well I've decided to go ahead and put the new ASUS A7M266 Mobo in, and a stick of MUSHY/Samsung PC-2100.



    I've got a DURON 800 & a TBIRD 800 sitting here and may try both...although I wish the DDR Athlon was available...if anyone knows.
    This article: http://www.gotapex.com/reviews.php?rev=a7m/index.html
    says the board is meant to do both types of CPU, so it may be a good way to get a first-hand comparison.
