    Here is my (imo) gorgeous Lian Li Micro ATX Case:

    Core i5 750, 4GB DDR3, 500GB, HD5850 OC'd, Gigabyte UD2.

    Was a pain in the arse to put together purely because of the scythe mini ninja I put inside but it's nice and quiet, runs like a dream and has played any game I have thrown at it so far so I'm happy =]

    Stunning case, makes me wish I had a reason to build a micro atx system.

    I will get some for you. It's rather cramped and cable management is literally a nightmare.

    ***EDIT***

    Here are the inside pics I promised. Sorry about the blurry last pic, my camera is not the best.

    Nice one.

    Did you have to change the front fans to fit the gfx in? Some people have swapped them for slimmer ones. There's a yate loon slimline fan available that's reasonably priced.

    No, the graphics card fitted no problem, I think I might have ran into issues if I used a 5870 instead of my 5850. Pics above now.

    Yeah, I had to put the cooler in after, which really was a pain. I had to do it that way round because the remoable motherboard tray wouldn't come out with it on lol.

    Yeah, that seems to be a common problem with those and large coolers. Looks good though, and when you're feeling more up for it, there's probably some more you could do with the cables and maybe some longer ones and cable ties.

    Ouch, it doesn't even look possibly to fit that cooler with the board in the case! :eek:

    It was incredibly difficult, i'll say that lol. And yeah, i'm sure if I set my mind to it I could find better ways of routing the cables, but there is so little room instead because of the full size psu, heatsink and gpu that I don't think I can be bothered lol.

    Be interesting to see what temps your northbridge, CPU and GPU are all hitting at full load.

    gah ive just posted a build im goin to do in the SSF section, didnt realise you posted it in here matey, should of checked before. Cant wait to build mine like that. I know its a daft qustion but how much noise does it give off? i was just wonderin about the CPU giving off the heat and makin the PSU run abit faster?

    Very nice build man, well done :D

    An absolutely gorgeous case - just another addition to the possible cases for my new upcoming sff/htpc build. :( Damn you :p

    Seems a bit overpowered though for such a small dainty case. ;)

    At idle all the cores are at around 30 degrees. When under load from Prime95 for 20 minutes they don't go above 56 degrees. Although Core#0 is 56 and Core#4 is 51. Is it normal for them to be this far apart?

    GPU Goes up to 78 degrees because of the small clock. Before never above 68.

    Haha, yeah, it does a bit.

    Thanks dude.

    I swore quite a bit, especially when trying to get the fan back on after I took it off to send my RAM to OCUK for testing.

    Thanks man. It is suprisingly quiet even with all the fans. I think it is down to the rubber mountings for everything. I love it.

    Haha yeah. It is a little I guess. It was originally gonna have a low end ATi card in it and used as a HTPC. Then the next thing I know i've pre-ordered a 5850 for it =P


    Cheers guys.
