    I am looking for a light, durable, mid-tower aluminum case that is well-ventilated, spacious, and has good cable management; basically I want all the perks of a steel case, but only at 10-15 lbs. I would be delighted if the case was a sleeker version of the Lian Li Lancool PC-K62 steel case or the Cooler Master HAF 922.

    Please let me know my best options and compare them to the stated cases if you can!

    Looks very good! However, I was hoping for something under $200. Do you know of any cheaper cases?

    Looks good, but it only weighs 5 lbs less than the HAF 922! I don't mean to sound picky, but I am hoping for a case I can easily move around.

    Where are you going to purchase the case from? We can suggest cases from Japan, if we can help, but you won't have access to them.

    LIAN LI PC-7HX Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Comput... - 6kg.

    LIAN LI PC-7FN USB 3.0 Black Aluminum ATX Mid Towe... - 5,47kg.

    Plentry of Lian Li cases range up to $200 dollars. You can, if you hardaware allows you and you like to go with Silverstone Grandia Series (GD08- 7kg) as well- although HTPC looking they still fit full-sized ATX MB and GPUs.

    LIAN LI PC-A05FNB Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Com... - 9.7 lbs

    My main issues with the Lian Li cases is that they do not appear to have as good ventilation as the PC-K62 and that they have comments that claim they are flimsy. I was originally looking at the LIAN LI PC-9F.

    I must buy the case through Canadian stores such as Newegg.ca, Canada Computers, NCIX, or Amazon.ca. American sites that ship to Canada are also okay.
