    ok well ive been saving up for a nice LL case for my main rig, and im having the hardest time deciding between these two

    http://www.coolerguys.com/840556025207.html

    and

    http://www.xoxide.com/ll-warrior-special-edition-black.html

    but the bottom one is a pc-60 modded, wich i could do myself but not neirly as good...

    im in a pickle between the casses and dont know wich one to go to... on and it will be air cooled because ive had to many problems with my water cooling system that im going back to air, so im in need of a better cooling case. and noise isnt a big issue for me, but quiet is good...

    please give me some suggestions, i keep going to buy one but them swich to the other and its an endless cycle...ahhh

    thnx :toast:

    Thats a tough question, both are very very nice. I personally would get the one from xoxide (I like the cooling and the blue LEDs) :pimp:

    I prefer the V1000B ... more options and looks to provide better cooling, since you're going back air ....

    thanks for the opinions, im still undicided, im kinda leading tward the one from xoxide because its got the two fans blowing on my gfx card... but i love the design of the v1000, with the hard drive on the very bottom, but im afriad there wont be enough airflow, and i dont realy want to start modding a $200 case (though i still might ;) ), because the intake fan is on the bottum

    so hard:banghead:

    Good choice, if your psu is to big take of that wall, I had to cause I have a huge psu.

    Let me tell you from my point of view of this case, I love the usb and mic ports, I love were the psu is located, I love that you can hide wires behind the Motherboard. The vented holes are amazing, The hidden drive aluminum bezel is amazing, the floppy drive thing is tricky but nice, Power button nice, Upside down motherboard is wierd but sweet at the same time, weels are very helpful. This case is light.

    One thing bad about this case, I still havent been able to set up my pins for my mobo other then power led, floppy thing is wierd, can get dirty at times, but easy to wipe off, also there is a fan filter in the front.

    This case always feels cold feeling the cold air go through it I love it, I love the whole design of it, I reccomend you get it.. Even though you said you are still just get it, and its pretty decent price. Last you a while, solid solid solid.

    yeah, im planing on putting another 120mm fan on top, and two 80mm fans on the side for the gfx card(all silent fans), im using a 500watt antec smartpower so it might be a lil big cuz its modular, so hopefully its going to turn out good! ill post pics in the case mod gallery when im done

    Bump:

    This is from my progress with this case right now

    This is my case now, picture takin with flash.
    http://i3.tinypic.com/w1wnq1.jpg

    This is it all lit up!
    http://i3.tinypic.com/w1wv9e.jpg

    This is the top window, the fans are red, but the blue makes them multi colored.
    http://i3.tinypic.com/w1wos4.jpg

    This is the front, picture taken with flash.
    http://i3.tinypic.com/w1wqwk.jpg

    This is the front, at night.

    This is the back of the case, the thermaltake pump is actually doing well considering how long these tubes are.

    See my psu, I had to take the whole front wall out for that psu to fit, you have the same one as me I think, so you will have to do that also, very easy 2 screws on top 2 on bottom, pull it out.

    Im getting a fan controller tomorow from performance pc, along with new cathodes..

    I would also get that V1000B, infact, I'm going to get it from my cousin! Wait, I'm broke!*DAMN*
    My limit on a new case right now is $70, that's where my cousin comes in.

    I was actually going to recomend just getting a PC-65b and modding it yourself and thus saving some money that way, but it looks like you've already gone with the V1000b. Still a great choice. I just thought I would add that this is one of the nice things about having a Lian Li case.

    the first one looks like a mockup of an Apple G5. I like the second one better, its simple yet maintains the look of a modifiable case.
