    Lian Li or Coolermaster Al case?

    No rush on this on this, but I'm looking to build a new rig when the Abit KG7 comes out and want a sweet csae to put it in. These two brands have got most of the press as far as aluminium cases go but I was wondering if any of you guys had experience with them and could recommend which one to go for, a Lian Li PC60/68 or Coolermaster ATCS-200? Or is there something else I'm missing out there?

    Price is pretty much the same so it just comes down to which case you'd prefer to live with (looks aside!). Any input will be gratefully taken onboard .

    I don't know jack about the Coolermaster, but I love my PC-60. Really, there's nothing more I could have asked for.

    Note: you will be flamed for buying an "overpriced tin-can", but just remember that means they envy your aluminum might!

    Overpriced, maybe, but tin it ain't . THanks for the headsup cyberstat, yeah, I may take some flak, but hell, by the time I buy it I should have a job, and if I can't celebrate by getting a sweet case to treat myself then I don't care. Compared to the money I'll be putting towards a motor, it's just icing on the cake .

    And if I am getting a good-looking case, I'm gonna need something that won't be damaged by everyone's drool, aluminium is way to go!

    I also just got a new rig and I love my PC60. No tools, built in fans, and that handy mobo slide-tray are awesome. Plus it looks sweet. I say go for it dude and just ignore the people that think their Antec cases are the best. I looked at those also and I think this is the way to go. I have heard about a new PC60 with USB in the front which you might want to look into if you need quick access to your USB and sound card ports.

    Hey everyone,

    I'm curious about that PC60 case. I've heard great things about this case but want to know what type and size power supply do they come with AND how much will this case set me back? Thanks!!

    411sponge, you can get it here for $180 shipped withuot a PS, I don't think may places (if anywhere) sell this sort of high-end case with a PSU, normally people prefer to choose their own, and you will have to too. I don't know how good this price is, but it seemed good enough to me.

    Wow! I can't believe that this is the price without a power supply. But, I must admit, that is one sweet looking case!! I'm actually thinking about purchasing it but I just hope this case will last me at least three more upgrades in the future! Thanks for the site Bennyboy!
