    Its a very nice case. It looks great IMO, the cooloing is decent. The one downside is that its quite hard to build in due to the section dividers etc. If your a bit of a noob with building pc's, it might not be the best choice of case. If your confident of building pc's however, i'd say go for it. Also make sure you PSU cables are long enough with the PSU being mounted at the bottom. And if you do get this case, get the BLACK one. :)

    Well, i brought on as the housing for my complete new system. This was my first build and i had no trouble putting it together at all. It looks great, is fairly quiet and runs pretty cool aswell.

    Only problem that i had was that my cables for my PSU were only just long enough.

    I would recommened the Lian Li PC7+ in BLACK. It really is one of the best mid range cases. Amazing quality - comes with 2 120mm fans. The P180 is amazing as well but as people have said - hard to install - costs alot - need long PSU cables.
