    On page 4:

    I think that should be "reach all seven drives".

    and also on page 4:

    I think that should be "peel off eventually".

    Man, I should be an editor for this place.:D

    Awesome review of an awesome case!

    Yes, I'm not perfect. It wasn't like I was trying to be a dick about it, just trying to help the reveiw look better, and hence the site look better.

    Sorry, I won't attempt to help again.

    Actually, except for the "typo", you were right to point out the inaccuracies.

    Thing is with forums and blogs, people too easily make mistakes. I always double check my posts and e-mails but still screw up from time to time. *sigh*

    BTW, nice review. Enjoyed reading it.

    I like Lian-Li cases. Also been moving toward Micro ATX more than the mid towers. They just take too much space anymore. This might be the one.

    Personally I would go for the a05, because of its unique layout and semi-sff size.

    Thanks for the review, I've ordered one of these cases for my new build. But now I have a question regarding the 3 fans in the case.

    On the Motherboard I am looking to buy, the ASUS P8P67-M, it looks like there is only one chassis fan power connector. Where should the other two connectors go? Is there a splitter of some sort, which makes it possible to connect all three to the connector on the MB?

    I know i can just connect them to a molex, but this way the fans would spin 100% 247, and not spin up/down according to load/idle.

    Thanks in advance!

    + Zalman CNPS 10X Performa Cooler
    RAM: GoodRam 4GB (2x3GB) 1333MHz CL9
    MOBO: AsRock H67M-GE/HT mATX
    GPU: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD6950 1GB DDR5/256bit DVI/HDMI/mDP PCI-Express
    AUDIO: Asus Xonar DX
    WLAN: D-Link DWA-131
    HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB SATAII 7200rpm 32MB cache

    Looks like there's only ~9.6" of clearance, so you'd need to remove the middle HD bay to have a 6950 fit.

    As long as you don't need those extra bays in the future, looks like a good case for you build!

    These things have so limited availability right now. Hey anyone know if it comes with some kind of adapter for 2.5 drives? I got a Antec P180 Mini with a separate adapter only to learn there was one in the case too!
