    Hey everyone,
    I stopped into Bestbuy yesterday. I had heard that Lian Li was making a case for them under the name Rocketfish. Just wanted a look. Turns out they had a bunch and they were'nt moving, guy says they are being discontinued. It was priced at $119.00, but it scaned at $41.00 so I grabbed three. All in all a nice case very big.:D

    just finished installing my backup rig in this case. did i mention this case is big? i may have to go buy another one next week. then move my water cooled quad rig into one of these cases. for $50 bux it cant be beat, its also pretty darn quiet.

    i cant believe how big this case is. i can barely see my motherboard in there, it looks like a micro atx, lolz. i've seen server boxes half this size. but i like it.

    my local best buy had 6 more of them. but shipping would be a killer, price wise. and these are not packed that well, just a formed piece of styrofoam on each end of the case.

    shipping should be around $20 USPS priority which still makes this a good deal, even if it were $40 shipping it'd be good
