    Okay, so I am seriously considering dropping the dough on a Lian Li A70F E-ATX case... It's currently on sale, and for $130 off it seems like a steal!

    A few questions...
    1) I am looking at Newegg, and it does not show the case having the 1x140mm fans on top like Lian Li's site shows? Is this a mistake, or does Newegg not ship it with the proper top panel?
    2) Would the 3x120mm or 3x140mm fan grill tops for the A70/A7010/A71(F) work with the A70F? Because the particular 3x120mm top for the A70F, well, I can't locate it for sale anywhere online?

    3) For ~$200, give or take a few dozen bucks, is there a better deal? Should I look at something else? Should I save money and get something cheaper (I have been wanting to get the Antec 1100 or P280, but with the A70F so cheap... it just seems like the Lian Li would have a lot more years in it with all of the modularity)??

    4) Is the A70F ($159) a better buy than the Z60B ($179) or Z70B ($239) at the given prices? I have a hard time differentiating them in pictures :/

    I could REALLY use some help here, as I have always adored Lian Li cases' build quality and subtle yet fierce aesthetics, although their ventilation, at least stock, often leaves something to be desired.
    However, if I can procure the top that allows a 360mm rad to fit, it would APPEAR to be a solid liquid cooling case... But I don't want to spend the money if I could do better (and I am still holding out for a CaseLabs TH10 for my big build; this will be a case that will "grow" and constantly change, serving as a gaming/HTPC/MediaServer/backup/etc PC "base" while the CaseLabs PC will be pure Gaming+Workhorse machine with its components only changed maybe every 4-5yrs).

    THANK YOU!!!


    (PS: I am looking at grabbing an OCZ ZX850, the fully-modular one in case I got the name wrong, as it is only $100 from Newegg for a 850W full-mod PSU; it would be used in this case, initially paired with my old FX-51 setup but eventually replaced with much more modern components... Is this PSU worth the dough, or no? How about a Seasonic X-Series 750W 80+Gold Fully-Modular PSU for only $109? Or should I hold off and wait?)

    Thanks! I am thinking of going with either the 1100 or P280, it's just that the 1100 has everything I want except for the P280's dual fan mount on top :/

    There's a NZXT rep here on TPU: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=81

    If you have any questions regarding this or any other NZXT products, you can post them there.

    I just posted a thread, but I am STRONGLY considering buying the white Switch 810 + an NZXT power supply today as I can get the case for $130 and the PSU for $130(HALE90 750W), $144 (HALE90 850W), or $80(HALE82 850W)...
    But I only have until midnight to decide!
